              • Older travelers
                7.4

                Room was very clean and comfortable. Loved having a refrig and microwave in room.

                Left a neck support pillow behind and tried several times to reach housekeeping about it but never received a call back.

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                Clean, well maintained, nice buffet breakfast, reasonable price, good location

              • Single
                9.2

                The staff was pleasant and provided me with anything I needed. Room was clean and had everything I needed.

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                Easily accessible off the Thruway and very quiet. Far enough away from downtown to allow the traveler to relax.

                The bathroom fixtures were leaky.

              • Older travelers
                5.4

                The roomwas old and outdated. The tub didn't drain properly and the bed cover was stained.

                Nice comfortable bed !

                guy on reception when I arrived was rude, lazy, unhelpful and completely messed up the whole deal... He claimed there was no record of my booking, then when I showed him the print out from Booked.net he said 'you gotta call Booked.net and sort it out with them' - this is at nearly midnight when I have travelled all day.... Eventually I got a room, but he wouldn't give me the same rate as Booked.net.. i also asked for 2 nights, he only booked me in for one. A quick call to Booked.net in the morning fixed the problem - the booking was made, the reception guy was just lazy and ignorant !

                8.2

                Room was clean

                Breakfast is not that good. A lot of garbage are also produced.

              • Couple
                3.8

                Staff was rude, gave us wrong booking price, had no idea of the reservation, gave wrong info on dining facilitites. bad service

              • Group of friends
                4.2

                They changed our room at checkin as first rom was very dirty and unplesant.

                The carpets were very dirty and smelled of humidity

              • Family with children
                4.2

                Smoke free room smelled of smoke. In the shower you could see where some one rested those cigarette on the soap holder and it melted through. The pillows were thin. And there was a hint of mildew in the air with the smoke smell. In the morning there was very little hot water. I had to turn the cold water all the way off and still got hits of cold throughout my shower. Not impressed Room 805

              • Group of friends
                4.2

                The Hotel was old and not updated. The carpets were dirty, the food was terrible. I was there during Hurrican Irene and the all the windows in the guest rooms leaked as well as the ceiling in the lobby. Water was dripping from everywhere. I left and moved to a different Hotel. My experience was terrible and would never recommend the Hotel to others

              • Older travelers
                5.4

                Staff was kind and polite.

                Unable to open windows was terrible. No room thus can be really feel clean. The hotel policy innthis case is unreasonable. Breakfast - it is free and also terrible. Better to provide a paid for and quality breakfast than this motel-style cheap mix.
