I have been in town visiting a sick relative and have been hopping between hotels during my visit using Hotwire, and thi place came up. It was a reasonable value, and te decor fit the name, very country. Staff was quite friendly, the clientele all seemed to be families from smaller towns around downstate New York, not many business travelers here the day I stayed. I was struck by a cigarette smell about the lobby, it struck me more when I saw the sign that said it was a smoke free environment. It became apparent that the smell was coming off some of the guests there, who apparently chain smoked in a closet until they smelled like an ashtray. When I got to the room I was a bit disappointed, there was a musty smell there, definitely a trace cigarette odor, although given my experience in the lobby, it might have just been residuals from a past guests clothes. The sheets were quite old though, and the bedcovers a bit old and faded. The bed was a bit saggy, but not enough to complain. The bathroom door was broken and wouldn't close but the bathroom itself was nice and clean, with good hot water. The sink was placed outside the bathroom, and there was a bit of water stain on the carpet below.
Overall, probably wouldn't go back unless they updated the place a bit, especially given the base list price compared with some others around the area, but a decent hotel with friendly staff.
