“A nice bare bones motel right in the middle of town”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2009

The Town House Motor Inn is a clean, bare bones motel right on Main Street in Oneonta, New York. It is easy to find. The very comfortable beds and bed/bathroom linens appear to be new. My room was spotess. There was no coffee maker and no radio, but that didn't matter because I set the alarm on my cell phone and several fast food breakfast options are right around the corner. The owner was polite and very helpful. My room was on the second floor and he carried my bag up the stairs. I will certainly return to this motel the next time I visit Oneonta.

This is a place that has possibilities but the owners seem to just not care. The Main Street location is great, the place was very quiet the night we stayed, the carpet indeed was new and the walls recently painted, and it seemed relatively clean in the room. However that's where the good news ends.... do not believe them if they say they have non-smoking rooms, they don't exist, rooms stink of smoke mocking the little plastic "No Smoking" sign; the sink, toilet and bathtub all drained slowly; no reading light by the bed; lightbulb missing in the one movable light fixture; no clock radio; cigarette butts all over the ground,stairways and walkways; door lock card reader didn't work; and the owners watched like hawks to shoo everyone out by the 11AM checkout. With just a little care this place could be OK, but alas clearly the owners don't care..... then again for $54, maybe you get what you pay for.

This place has a crappy paint, spackle and caulk job, unworking toilet, no place to hang clothes, dirty dresser drawers, moldy shower curtain, broken light switches and it smelled like cigarette smoke. Plus, it was expensive!

Owner says he is in process of remodeling, but you shouldn't be renting out rooms that are arent completely finished. One light in room, no lamps, no clock, no phone. There was a tv and ac. Thank God they both worked. Walls were spackled and peeling. Bathroom door didn't shut. Never bothered to shower, I was too afraid. No other motels were available or I would have left. May have been better off sleeping on my son's dormroom floor.

This place is dirty. Charges for local calls. Only good quality is free wifi when it works.
