For the price, we thought this place would be fine, but the price on the website was mysteriously unavailable as this place somehow cost us $20 more than listed...which I only found out after we got home... Of course by the time we arrived it was simply too late to go anywhere else...

Where should I start? We get told to park by the center door on the side and that the lock is broken so just try to rip it off the hinges and it'll open. The parking lot contains vehicles that are in disrepair and clearly have been just dumped there.

The broken door opens up to a hallway with vending machines and a broken ice machine that sounds like a jackhammer, only louder.

There's old tube TV that was so overused in its years many colors didn't show up, just like the channels. After flipping stations a few times we were happy to find broadcast news even though the sign out front says HBO.

The wifi lets you connect to it, but when you accept the terms, it times out and never lets you use the actual internet...just keeps going to the terms page...and then nothing...

The weatherstripping on the sliding glass door that faces the highway was gone, so we heard every truck that went by...all night long... The rest of the hotel was rather quiet, though, luckily...

There weren't enough plugs to charge our phones AND our camera gear. The bathroom was clearly not up to health code (at least here in Massachusetts it wouldn't be) since it had no fan. My companion had the shower curtain rod (that us supposed to be SCREWED into the wall) hit her when she went to close the shower curtain. From all the scratches on the wall near the screw holes, you could see that it had fallen out so many times and been slid back in. The shampoo and conditioner were SOLID in their little bottles, but at least the "Howard Johnson" branded soaps were usable.

The next morning we get up early to escape this place and visited the laughable breakfast bar on the way out with its corn flakes, cheerios, bread, all stale. There was a basket with generic yodels and pretzel shaped honey type buns. Not sure how that's breakfast, but when you're in a crappy place...you simply don't eat.

I've paid less for so much more... This place should be shut down.

Room Tip: Choose a room in another hotel. Try the abandoned one across the street. It's only been closed f...

Worst hotel ever. Dirty. Doors don't lock. I checked in and came back to get refund and was hassled. Said I shouldn't talk bad in front of other guests. I told her she should speak English in front of me, since she was talking a foreign language to someone else, knowing she was talking about me.

this is a horrible place to stay....don't do it!! they claim they are a wyndham...poor representation of it. The carpets were filthy, stained, large stains and old and disgusting. The radiator grill was broken and deteriorated. the breakfast consisted of weak coffee, white bread, and margarine from a large tub that everyone in the hotel shared!!! disgusting!!! The walls and doors had black dirt on them. the whole place smelled like smoke....even though i was in a non-smoking room. the outside of the hotel walls were made of concrete...and the concrete was falling off. but sheets were clean..i think

The rooms are kept clean, large and relatively nice. There are some important but minor paint issues. The pool is not available.

ShopRite, Walmart, and SaveRite are nearby. They sell Kosher beef, chicken, and many other Kosher products the entire year.

Swimming and boating is available during the summer in Loch Sheldrake' lake.

Morningside Park has boating rentals and acrades through September.

Liberty Lanes is nearby with arcades and bowling by the hour.

This place is not perfect but it is NOT a dump. It is OK to stay here.

Don't rely on their free breakfast. Much better food can be purchased nearby.

While I understand that budget hotels don't often provide the best accommodations, this hotel is very overpriced for the very poor state of the facilities. The rooms were actually pretty large, but that just meant there were more places to be scared there were bugs hiding. The continental breakfast was a bowl of little debbie products, and the pool was shut down. I would only be mildly offended if the rates were half, but for what I paid it was borderline highway robbery.
