GREAT price! Super hot water & very clean room. I don't understand some of the negative reviews. You're not paying 5 star prices, but get a great economical room for the night here.

The motel was rundown, and definitely showing its age. The lobby, was shared by a Chinese restaurant, and very cluttered. The room was neat, but old and shabby.

It's a great place to stay, not fancy or upscale. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly.

Worse experience ever

Pros: The restaurant was good, my husband enjoyed the food. I was told it was not owned by the motel.
Cons: Stop falsely advertising this location as a hotel/motel. It is clearly public housing
Please Please do not book this "hotel/motel" and I use those words lightly. This facility is public housing for the homeless and unemployed and I'm assuming it is being paid for by the tax payers of Oneonta NY. I don't even know where to begin to describe it. First of all the pictures you are seeing on travelocity are not what this place looks like. The outside has abandoned vehicles in the parking lot, personal belongings being sold inside as if it's a yard sale from tenants that have left them behind. Clothes hanging on hangers drying outside on the light posts. Now for the inside, WOW even worse. The bed should have been thrown away 20 years ago along with the pillows. The bathroom had human hair stuck to the towels, toilet and tub as if someone had trimmed their own hair. One chair that was a hazard to sit in. 1 table with no chairs. No heat and the place was so run down and dirty. I'm glad I specifically asked for a clean room!! I could go on and on so please save your money and if you are a female traveling alone please stay away from this one. So to recap this is not a location that should be advertised as a motel, it is public housing for people whom have no other option. It is not a safe location due to it's misrepresentation as being a hotel. There is no security and the facility itself is beyond dirty. I booked two nights. It was so bad I left after the first night. They have a very strict no refund policy and now I see why.

Worse than expected

Going into this stay I knew it was a low-end motel. But the staff was so incredibly slow at check in, then gave me a single smoking room when my reservation clearly said 2 double beds and non smoking. Then the room is just run down. Not dirty or a disaster, but beds aren't comfortable, walls and carpeting are worn out.... all is very dated.

Good enough to sleep for a night.

Pros: The cleanliness of the room.
Cons: 1. Dead bolt on door 2. Put coffee in the room with the coffee maker 3. Install safety bars in the tub, and something on the floor of the tub
Location: We were there for business, didn't do anything else.
The room and bathroom was very clean and smelled clean. The bed was comfortable. The things that we didn't like is 1. There was no dead bolt on the door. 2. There was a coffee maker but no coffee 3. The tub had no safety bars, and the floor of the tub was very smooth. Felt very unsafe showering, Felt that one could slip and fall.

Pleasantly Surprised!

We were looking for affordable lodging over the Memorial Day Weekend and Motel 88 was perfect for our needs. The staff was professional and friendly, and our room was clean and quiet. It was a short drive to Main Street in Oneonta where we enjoyed the local bookstore and restaurants.
