Dark, gloomy and unclean. Staff did not wear face masks. Door had an old wobbly lock - we did not feel secure in our room at all. Ended up propping door handle with a chair. Floors were dirty, bathrub had rings from toiletry bottles (not ours!!), so obviously wasn’t cleaned. There was a heavy febreeze scent that was trying to mask a bad smoke odor. Our bed was missing a blanket! Room had some random furniture (an old TV stand with no TV). No internet access. Stay somewhere else!

The care of the fish tank was very poor. The water was green and very unpleasing to the eye. The staff could have been a bit nicer as well.

The property was close to the Waldameer park and we were only staying one night so this hotel did the trick. The owners were very nice. We stopped before going to the park and they checked us in early and gave us the key so we could just go to the room when we left the park. They are in the process of remolding the rooms. Our room was done but there was still some old furniture in the room. A new TV but the old TV stand was still there. Also the mirror in the bathroom was old but the walls and bath had been done over and very clean. There was no hair dryer. To our surprise there was a continental breakfast on Saturday. Coffee and donuts and cold cereal but it was nice because we were heading home and just enough to gets us home.

Wow, where to start. The door was missing its deadbolt and had no security chain. The door itself looked rotted and ready to fall apart. The window shades wouldn't close fully for necessary privacy on a ground floor. Hole in the wall with blue drywall tape still there. Thankfully the bed and bathroom appeared to be clean. Very run down place, should have been 1/2 price what I paid for it.

Location proximal to Birding Festival was a plus. The room was neat and tidy; however, it was not serviced between stays. The lock to the room was difficult to use to gain entry. No internet connection was most negative. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Would probably stay again once renovation is completed. Negative: Inn was most difficult to locate - the names changed - not visible from the highway.

I like the retro motel feel with the updated room. They still have work to do, but it was clean and a good value.
