“Rooms nice, but small”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Our two double bed room was pretty clean, but there was something sticky on the floor and the bathroom door stuck (it was a hot, humid weekend). We had more than one room, and there were ants on the windowsill of one of the other rooms. The breakfast room was well stocked. The staff were friendly and available to help when asked. But why is it that when they know there are 4 guests in a room they only stock towels for two?

I was told the place is being renovated, and we had renovated rooms (was with a group). Location near the highway in what seemed like a nice part of town (or at least not a rundown part of town). Clean, working heater, have to pay for Wi-Fi, breakfast free but nothing to write home about (frosted flakes, froot loops, toaster waffles, white bread, pastries that look like the kind you'd find in a vending machine). No exercise room.

This hotel is good if you just need somewhere to sleep for a night or two and don't require a lot of amenities. Hotel offers easy access to I-90 which is a plus. We stayed for 2 nights for our son's basketball tournament in Saratoga Springs. Saratoga Springs can be a bit pricey so we did the 7 day advance purchase for Super 8 and ended up saving quite a bit of money. Front desk staff were nice and friendly. As for the hotel, the walls are extremely thin so be forewarned, you will hear your neighbors a bit more than you're probably used to. Rooms are small, kind of like being in a college dorm room. Typical free continental breakfast with waffles, cereal, packaged pastries, but breakfast room is tiny. Beds were surprisingly comfortable. There is a gas station across the street and a Dunkin Donuts a minute away. Overall a nice, quiet area. We would definitely stay at this hotel again. The price makes up for the lack of amenities provided by the hotel.
