Maybe our expectations were a bit high from viewing the Myer motel website and from all the glowing reviews here- but in any case we were let down.
First of all the name Myer COUNTRY motel is misleading...it is on the edge of town but there are businesses and residences surrounding the property, it's not by any means rural. The website features photos of streams and waterfalls, and there sure aren't any of those nearby, unless someone leaves the shower running.
The website also features a photo of a cute antiquey bed...the furnishings in our room were fairly Hotel 6ish- and the bed, though large, was incredibly hard, as if it didn't have a mattress but just a box springs. The carpet was worn and bunchy, with exposed nails by the sink that would poke ya in the bare feet while handwashing. The room was not all that clean either.
All in all, I guess $85 a night in August is a low enough price to pay for the Poconos area, but this tired, joyless place did not feel like any sort of bargain. Any charm it has is from the outside only, and we wouldn'tstay there again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to the Myer Country Motel where for over 68 years our standards of innkeeping excellence have been our trademark. Nestled among the Pocono Mountains of North Eastern Pennsylvania, the cottages sit on four acres with blue spruce and white pine trees lining the courtyard. The Myer Country Motel was established in 1945 by Ralph and Matilda Myer. Ralph remarried in 1952 to Audubon Winfield and they together continued to run the motel well into their 80's until their daughter, Audubon Cox, took over in 1975. She brought her energy and knack for decorating to the motel to give it a country home feel. Many people comment that this is their "home away from home". In June 1995 the third generation took over to continue the family business. Today you'll find the same warm, country friendliness that has set us apart for over 68 years. We hope you will visit us soon! ... more less
