This is a basic roadside motel in a beautiful region. But it's really rundown on the outside. Window panes and curtains are unmatched and a bit foreboding. Room was basic/fine sort of but lots of murky wall damage that suggests rough times. Haze of pot smoke from other rooms and just an aura of iffiness resulted in our paying but not staying. We didnt not fight for refund since their policy was firm but we were just happy to leave and drive into the wee hours of the morning. Convenient that they allow pets since our dog hung out there while we went to event but even that felt iffy. What could improve the James-- hard to say. Aesthetic sure but also I guess vibe. But you get what you get. Allowing a pet was the reason we said there but in fact we didnt really stay!

Our house was sold, I was facing brain surgery but our apt wasn't ready.. that's when we chose to stay at James motel...woken in middle of the night accusing us of lying about my brain tumor and a misunderstanding about using their mail address...we were not lying...

We travel with two large dogs (over 50 but under 100 lbs.) and this motel fit the bill perfectly. The drive-up motel allows for ease in loading and unloading dogs and luggage. When I booked, I did not realize that part of the motel was two-story and we were booked in the upper floor room. Due to the season, the motel was fully booked and we couldn't be moved to a room on the first floor. This was more of a problem for me than the dogs but it worked out alright for us. The room was clean and spacious and the king size bed very comfortable. This is under new ownership and the owners are really working to modernize the rooms. Rates are reasonable as are pet fees.

We were going to the Renaissance Faire in Tuxedo. Checked in later than we meant to. VERY nice staff were gracious about this. Very clean room smelled faintly (and not unpleasantly) of bleach. It was quiet and the bed was very comfortable. Slept SO well. Will make this the hotel we always stay at to go to the Ren. Faire. Very reasonable price considering competition. Oh, and there's a kickin' Korean place across the street. Please try it.

This is another old hotel from the area that was bought by new owners. The walls still outgas years and years of tobacco odor. Not really the fault of the new owner and I have been in worse. Its adequate for two nights. I wouldn't want to be in there more but its okay.
