No frills, nothing special, but a clean place to stay is passing through town. Rooms were a good size and bathroom was moderately clean. Location is good right off of rt. 88 which is why we stayed there along our trip. No Wifi though.

Nice place for our sports team to stay. We are pretty much busy and out of the place during day. It provides a clean room and comfortable beds for sleeping. There are places in town to eat and Cooperstown is 20 minutes away.

Stayed here on a motorcycle trip. It has been remodeled recently, I like having my bike right outside my room, so I can keep an eye on it. There is a Chinese restaurant attached, so if you like Chinese food it is right there or there is a great steak house/pub across the street. I would certainly stay here again.

My real gripe is with PriceLine - the website stated "just two rooms left!" and none others in town. The lot was near empty... The room was equivalent to the $220 room in Wildwood in August. So, it was a room. No smoke odor, a little musty, I did not turn on the ac/heat, but did open the window for...

I stay in about 50 motel rooms a year on a tight budget. This place deserves three stars easily. I thought it was good value for the price. The clerk was very helpful and positive. The place is old and rooms small but, decent updates and clean. The bathroom was up to date and the bed linens were actually quite...

I forgot a pair of Nike sneakers and I called that same day and said, I will pick them up the next day on my way home. The front desk said housekeeping tossed them in the trash already. When I asked to speak to a manager she said.... there is no number to call Mr. Chen and he doesn't take...

Awsome dude! They have a grand piano in the reception as well as birds, fish and a chinese girl who is practicing Beethoven. All good fun! Our rooms have tacky drapes and the porch smells a little like fish, but it is cozy ... if you like fish. Bring your own whiskey and have breakfast at Dennys, and all is...

There was no bedding. The rug was covered with stains. The bathtub was icky and there was no shower curtain, toilet paper or garbage bin. The curtain shielding us from the creeps outside was so encrusted with filth it was thick and sticky. Two beds and 1 pillow. Marijuana stems and a joint roach in the night table drawer. Crumbs...

The only reason we stayed here was all the other hotels in the area were booked. I would rather have slept in the car. The room was clean but the soda machine was out of order and it took 15 minutes to reach the front desk to get internet service. The room was small and the property needed some work.
