“Great, relaxing place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

We arrived here the day after last summer's tornado - the electricity was just restored as we got there. The room was great and a real bargain. There was a sitting area, small kitchen, and the bedroom was secluded in the back area. The staff was fantastic.

Room Tip: IOf they are all like the one we stayed in they are equally good.

If you want fancy smancy, this isn't the place. If you need clean, functional, roomy living quarters. You found it. This lodge is locally owned and operated. Check in was super easy. The super nice staff stayed at the office waiting for late arrival. The unit we had was perfect as it gave my husband the space he wanted and it put me just 5 miles from my sister's home while we visited for a week. The lodge is a little dated in its decor, but the carpets and linens are very clean. Each unit has a kitchenette and all the basic kitchen accessories that you would need to operate on a day to day basis (except for food), a hide-a-bed couch, a dining table with 4 chairs, tv with cable/satellite, bed (we had the King), dresser and a large rack to hang up clothing. The bedroom area also closes off from the living and kitchen areas. This is especially nice when one person wants to retire earlier than the other. It was nice enough that I just may convince my husband to drive back to upstate NY for a visit again sooner rather than later. This would be a great place to stay if you were planning a trip to hunt in local area NY or nearby PA (only 6 miles away).

Room Tip: Ice machine can get a little noisy next to room 5, but otherwise this is a clean, roomy and function...

If you're looking for a hotel with whirlpool tubs, fitness center, continental breakfasts, room service, then this is not the place for you.
IF your looking for a great family owned hotel in a small town neighborhood with warm, friendly proprietors, and need a place to rest your head and relax then this is the place.
The hotel is not new, does not have all the luxuries of a modern upscale hotel BUT is the perfect place to relax and is a great value!
The rooms are clean, plenty of room to relax with a fully stocked kitchenette, sink, stove, coffee maker, microwave, dishes, pans, utensils, etc. The bedrooms are separate from the kitchen / living area with a door and the beds are comfortable. Living area has a nice comfortable couch, dinning table with chairs, lazy boy chair and large flat panel TV with cable along with free WiFi.
Being a relatively older hotel, yes, there is a hint of mustiness to the place but nothing that cannot be tolerated.

Room Tip: Top floors would be recommended from a noisy neighbor standpoint

The hotel is very old as well as the furnishings. The windowsills in the bedroom were filthy. The musty smell of old carpet permeated everything. Couldnt believe what they charge for this room. I do agree with another reviewer that it is a smokers paradise. There were ashtrays outside of everyroom on the windowsill as well as every stairway.

The Coachman Motor Lodge is a wonderful family-owned place to stay, located in a quiet residential small-town neighborhood. My family and I stay there every time we stop in Elmira NY (once a year, on our way to Keuka Lake). The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean, and the price is affordable (they have an AAA discount, too). Each room has a full kitchen (mini-refrigerator, microwave, stove, toaster, kitchen sink, dishes, cabinets, coffee maker), a full living room (large flat-screen wall-mounted TV, comfortable sofa and armchair, table with chairs, end tables with lamps), free WIFI, a separate bedroom (with closing door, nightstand, alarm clock, ac/heating unit), a full bathroom, iron/ironing board, with guest laundry and an ice machine on-site. There is no pool, playground, or continental breakfast, but there are plenty of places to eat and play nearby. I would definitely recommend breakfast or lunch at the Classic Cafe (805 Pennsylvania Avenue), lunch or dinner at OIP (Original Italian Pizza, which features MUCH more than just pizza, at 411 S. Main Street), and family fun at Elmira's excellent Eldridge Park (96 Eldridge Park Dr), featuring their original Carousel (grab the brass ring!), plus Dragon Paddle Boats, Thunderbirds skyride, miniature golf, Jasper the Dragon boat ride, miniature train ride, live music, arcade, playground, fishing, ice cream and snack shops, and more! This motel books quickly because of good-word-of-mouth, so make your reservations in advance!

The room was clean. The beds were very comfortable. The staff was pleasant. Unfortunately, someone had smoked in the room excessively before we arrived. What a shame, the smell of the room really ruined this hotel.
