We used this as a stopover on the way to Philly from Albany. It was chosen because it is almost halfway. We arrive at a few minutes after 10pm and were surprised to find the hotel literally surrounded by firework factories/warehouses. One of the reasons, other than it's midpoint on the journey was the fact that the hotel included in its amenities, a shuffle to the local bar, sounded just the right fit. The shuffle we found out stops at 10 and apparently so does the bar. If we had known we would have continued to Scranton or stopped in Bingamton.
The hotel itself was clean enough and we were at one end of the first floor and the external door near our room (supposed to be card access at all times) was continually being wedged open with a rock. I understand that management cannot stop guests doing this, but there should be some sort of sensor which sounds an alarm in reception if the door is open for more than a minute. So we felt that security at this place was very poor.
Breakfast was delicious and the attendant was an excellent host making sure she was next to you if you had questions or looked like you could not find something and was not putting too much of the hot food out at one time and was re-supplying whenever needed. Give the location it should probably have been 2/3 of the price we paid.
Would we stop there again - no, but if all you are looking for is a clean bed for the night with a great breakfast and do not care about the high price this would probably work for you.
