“Very good motel - met all our needs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

This place might not be the best choice for luxury seekers, but we really enjoyed it. The rooms are clean and well maintained. The location is excellent - not far from the interstate but still far enough to enjoy a great Adirondack setting and experience. The owners are friendly and helpful, and the prices are very reasonable. We'll definitely return.

The service I experienced:
Overall, the service provided was good for the price I paid for my one night stay.

How I liked the room:
Although a bit smelly (the smell went off after I switched on the AC), the room was spacious and had all the basic amenities.

The location & amenities:
Located adjacent to U. S. 9 in Shroon Lake NY, the motel was easily accessible and provided a comfortable stay for the one night we were there. There was ample space for parking. The room had a TV with Dish connection, a small refrigerator and a microwave oven. The price included a complimentary continental breakfast as well.

We stayed for 2 nights and got a good deal. The pros-easy off I-87. About 7 miles from town center. Nothing really on the premises for restaurant, lounge or excitement. There is a small children's playground, a firepit and your welcome to use it. They provide wood, picnic tables and a free standing BBQ. They do offer a continental breakfast that is low key, The offer a gallon of milk & OJ, boxed donuts ,yogurt, boxed cereal , coffee, hot tea. ok to hold you over or if you are a light Breakfast eater. The owner Jerry and "company" do a pretty good job keeping up with the place and its clean. There really isn't a lot to do in Schroon, off season anyways so you might not care to be so far away from town where it might give you something to do. There are only 4 rooms with heat and we had 2 of them. It was a comfortable stay. You have to get certain things at the office, such as a Hair drier. No smoking in the rooms but they offer 2 chairs outside your door w/table & ashtray. This is a MOTEL and not a fancy hotel but if you want to get away and not pay a lot this is the place. Walls are a little thin and you can hear lots when people are outdoors BUT it was quite most of the time because its away from town and set-back aways from the road. My husband was up the week-end prior and actually stayed at the MOTOR COURT same price, small cabin AND closer to town!! for the money I would stay at the Motor Court if I returned off season!

We loved this place. The best thing is that they are pet friendly! The new owner has been working hard to re-build this motel up to a great standard. We got a brand new looking room. Abby our dog loved it there too! The owner was really pet friendly. We went on the off season the price was very reasonable and the showers HOT! You can even go hiking in the back woods there!
We loved it and will definitely be returning!

Checked in at 2am. Attendant was super friendly. Room was nice. Beds were just comfortable to be able to get a good night sleep- Would give it a 5-star rating if they were better. Shower was fine, They serve breakfast at 4am. We stopped over there Friday night to get rested for weekend of hiking. Good for a stay over on route to activities the next day. Wouldn't recommend it for someone looking to make the motel a centerpiece of their vacation.

We won't be staying again. The pros for the place: The people running it were very nice and the fact it was relatively quiet is about all that they have going for the place, sadly.
Cons:
1) Worst offense is that even with the motel not full, before husband finished his shower in the AM, the water ran ice cold so I wasn't able to shower at all before heading out for the day. That is majorly egregious problem for a motel, in my humble opinion.
2) breakfast included dollar store variety of pastries and some boxed cereals. NO half/half or creamer for the coffee, only powdered creamer and tiny cheap styrofoam cups for said coffee.
3) The room was tiny, the mattresses were like sleeping on a very lumpy floor. Headboards were propped up against the wall, which knocked the wall every time you rolled over which was annoying, probably as much for the neighbor with the adjoining room as for us.
4) Small bathroom with no counter space, thin and too few towels.
5) The ad said 'flat screen TV " in the room which wasn't true. TV & AC/appliances are too outdated.
6) There are not enough electrical outlets; the clock they provided had to be unplugged to be able to charge the cell phone, and husband had to charge his ipad across the room, where the lamp was also unplugged.
7) They don't allow smoking in the rooms which is GREAT but they have ashtrays directly outside each room which allows the smell to permeate the rooms a bit.
8) When we arrived, the room was stifling hot so while resting up we left the door open to get some air movement and in walks some random dog that was left unattended and said dog, though seemingly ok, scared other guests who were outside with their small child such that the person was frozen in her spot, too fearful to move even to go to their room. No one seemed to notice the dog was running loose.
9) The curtains don't allow enough privacy; with a light on inside and curtains drawn, you might as well be behind a sheet putting on a show, you can clearly see outlines of everything happening inside the room. This also means at night, the outside lights flood the room through these thin curtains.

This is a motel that has been in the area for years and is now under new ownership.It has been refurbished and upgraded, Rooms are clean and reasonably priced.There are a few minor glitches but the cordial and helpful staff make up for any little problems.
