I found this motel through Trip Advisor and decided to try it because of the good reviews. We were not disappointed. As a family of 6 (two adults and four teens) it's very hard to find somewhere to stay where you don't have to book two rooms. Herkimer Motel had a 2 suite room with 3 queen beds for a very reasonable price. I was thrilled with that and didn't expect much more, so we were really amazed at how nice it was. Clean, comfortable, spacious. Our room also had a kitchenette with a microwave, fridge/freezer, sink and cabinets. There were two flat screen televisions, a nice work table, wifi, and wow...really soft towels that felt like they should have been from a luxury hotel. We didn't get to try out the pool or the fitness center, but both looked nice. The lobby was very inviting with nice little touches like games, reading material, etc. The continental breakfast was fine as well...English muffins, bagels, cold cereal, oatmeal, boiled eggs, yogurt, muffins, juices, coffee, tea, hot chocolate. I'm sure I'm leaving something out, but we thought it was quite good. The staff is also very friendly and professional. Yes, it is between train tracks and the thruway. We were in the back building and it really didn't bother us. The only "problem" was our upstairs neighbors who sounded like they were conducting a track meet over our heads at 11:30pm. Honestly...I'm a heavy sleeper and not much keeps me awake (not even trains or a thruway), but these folks were incredibly noisy. There was also some kind of motorized noise...it almost sounded like they were vacuuming, but not quite. I'm still curious what that was about...maybe inflating air mattresses? Anyway, that's certainly not the motel's fault. I only bring it up because I finally had to call the front desk at about midnight as we were not getting any sleep. They were friendly and understanding and immediately said they would call the other room for us. I was surprised to get a call back from the front desk within about a minute, just letting us know that the folks above had just checked in and "should be settling down in a few minutes". As a bonus, the motel is quite close to eating and shopping and attractions like the Herkimer Diamond Mine, Reminton Arms Museum and Erie Canal Cruise. I really can't imagine staying anywhere else next time we're in Herkimer!
