Easy access off the NYS Thruway. Front desk clerk was very pleasant & helpful. Over all hotel is o.k. Could use some upgrading. Breakfast was o.k. Our room was very roomy but the rug had not been vacuumed and it showed, plus there were a couple of hairs in the bathtub. Price could have been a little more reasonable, because after you add on all the taxes it was a little expensive for its location.

This hotel was nit uo to the quality of Best Western hotels. We normak stay at Best Western , Holiday Inn or Marriot hotels. Because if Hall of Fame weekend ,hotels were hard to find. This hitek charged us over $300 and was not up to BE standards. No escalators, smokey- musty odor in room. Toilet paper was wet (like it fell in toilet), stairs were wet, slippery (told housekeeper 'dtill wet when ee went out 3 hours later), bathroom outlet plug not attached, had to keep attaching, wrappers under bed. Advertised as a full breakfast, we went down at 7am and it was a continental breakfaskfadt not full breakfsst as listed. At checkout, i told of ny concerns and was told "hosekerper doesnt soeak english and i told her we spoke both English and Spanish ti her! They only said sorry! Real unhappy with our stay here. especially the amout we paid

This BW looks like it has been abandoned. Just a bit of solid maintenance and upkeep would work wonders for it. I won't stay there again.

Older Motel, clean, friendly staff, convenient location, good night's sleep

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Older motel in reasonable upkeep. Breakfast was not inspirational, but did include more than coffee and last week's doughnuts. Exercise room included a few bicycles and was situated in a hallway. Staff was friendly and the location was convenient. The motel is set back off the road a little so traffic noise was non-existent. Room was perfectly clean and all lights/outlets/etc worked as they should. Weirdest part was the room numbering system. 309 was ground floor!
