Room and public facilities clean and maintained. Check in was good. The one staff member we encountered was friendly. Only critique is that there is no elevator which was not a problem for us but could be for others

Nice hotel for the price

Pros: The beds were good & the room was a good size The breakfast was better than expected .I would stay here again...
Cons: the rooms are a bit dated from the 90's Also new light bulbs for the sign outside it was poorly lit.
Location: it's a small town ,but has plenty of gas stations & food
We came in late but got good rooms and had a pleasant night rest. The desk girl was very polite & professional.

Needs updating

The staff was great and the beds were clean and comfortable. The room definitely needed some much needed TLC.

Bates Motel

Hotel is disgusting. Lobby smelled like a dirty ashtray. Room was freezing. Heating unit ancient and falling off the wall. Bathroom old and dirty - wallpaper peeling off of the wall. It was actually creepy so I left and went next door to the Holiday Inn. This hotel should be condemned.

Decent Hotel ...But could be better

Pros: Basic Breakfast included, friendly staff, close to suny, comfortable bed, good tv (we stayed at a hotel where the tv was very difficult to operate)
Cons: Area around the top of the bathtub is not clean enough and looks like mold - it is wallpaper and isn't meant for the wet location.
Location: close to Cortland SUNY close to restaurants
Travel to the area 5 - 6 times a year. Have stayed at this hotel 3 times. Very Friendly Staff, lobby area is clean, heat in rooms should be better( it's annoying) and shower area should be cleaner, it's close to restaurants and hwy. Just and FYI - no refrigerator nor microwave, but there is a microwave in the lobby as well as free coffee and basic cookies and fruit. Breakfast is included. Good priced hotel for the area. Better than other similarly priced hotels in the area, but not as good as the higher price hotels(which makes sense). Not sure if I will stay there again -depends on the price of this and the higher priced hotels in the area

Nice Staff - needs some updating touches

Pros: Price, free breakfast
Cons: heat in rooms and updated bathrooms
Location: close to SUNY schools, highway and restaurants
I stay there because it is usually a good price. Overall clean and comes with free breakfast. Beds are comfortable but the heat was not turned on the 2 times I stayed there until I got in the room and turned it on myself. It took about an hour to heat up the room. That was annoying. Next time I will call ahead to make sure the heat is on. The rooms are just slightly on the smaller side but we are just there to sleep and be on our way. It could use some updating, in the bathrooms especially in the shower ceiling area. Nice enough for the price and the counter people are pleasant. I may bite the bullet and spend more money on a nicer hotel in the future but the extra $50 a night can add up. We travel often to the area 5 - 6 times a year.
