This place is completely disgusting. Bugs on the wall, TV didn't work. They are very unprofessional, the owners kids were wondering into guests' rooms. They overcharged my card, wouldn't call bank. Not worth the price. DO NOT GO THERE!

Room Tip: Do not go to this hotel!!!!

This place was the worst motel my wife and I have ever stayed at in our long history of cheap motels.

The problems:

* First of all there were little beetle bugs and cock roaches crawling around the floors. We killed several of the bugs and left them on the floor. The next day we put the "maid service" tag on the door knob, assuming at the least they would at sweep clean the dead bugs off the floor --- but they didn't. The maids, I think it was the owner's wife, and two other women working as a team, they changed the towels, made the bed, AND LEFT THE DEAD BUGS on the floor! No lie! We left them where they were obvious.

* The carpet was wet near the bed. The room smelled like pee, not sure if that's what the wet floor was or if it was because of the place was mildewed and damp in the first place (it was musky smelling). Nasty.

* The walls were cheap circa 1960's dollar bin wallpaper, yellow and bubbled, with places that showed obvious past leaks in the ceiling running down the walls. Haven't been updated or cleaned/changed in many years.

* The AC was louder than a Mack truck, but it worked well enough. Not a huge issue if you are tired enough, though it did necessitate turning the TV way up to be able to hear anything on it.

* Intimacy? Well, uh, not after seeing the bugs. Not in the morning either, as the bed was so uncomfortable, we had to take Tylenol to offset the soreness of a night on it. Couldn't wait to get out of bed, and out of the room in the morning. I'm not lying.

* The toilet was so weak that if you had to do anything other than pee, you better be ready to fill the bathroom's trash can in the shower to dump it in the toilet, thereby giving it enough pressure to flush. Bad bad bad.

* Oh, and the shower curtain did not fit the shower doorway, which meant that the floor became quite wet when you took a shower. We got our feet wet every time we used the bathroom post shower.

* The dorm room-style refrigerator worked, but it was just a shell on the inside, no shelves whatsoever, we had to stack our food inside of it. Not great at all.

* No WiFi, free or otherwise. The other reviewer, Steve H. he claims there was WiFi, that was two years ago, maybe they decided to discontinue it .... dunno, but they didn't have any WiFi while we were there.

Oh, the good? The owners were nice.

The Indian couple who own the place were very accommodating. We asked them for a couple of extra pillows (as the two on the bed were too thin to properly elevate your head). They gladly gave us two more pillows to accommodate us. We also asked for a couple of extra bath towels which they were happy to give us - to sop up the puddle of water on the bathroom floor from the shower curtain that didn't fit the shower..... sheesh.

All in all, this place is a DUMP, looks cute at a glance, from the road, but as soon as you open the doors, it goes DOWNHILL in a second. You can do much better in the area for $65 a night, believe me. Never again.

This is a clean and well maintained spot to stay on a budget staff is friendly and very accommodating. Is near excellent eatery's and the NY thruway. I appreciate the peaceful setting ,my husband and I are trucking over the road most weeks so when we do want a break it is nice to be away from all the noise and busyness of daily life on the road.

My wife and were recently traveling the NYS thru-way we were heading to Sylvan Beach I had called several places for a room and they were all a bit pricy we just wanted a room as we were going to spend the day at the beach. We decided to get off at the Westmoreland exit and look for a room there. We saws the sign turned right and there is was. The owner was very pleasant he gave us a great rate. The rooms are a bit dated but they are kept clean. the beds are great the grounds of the inn are well kept, its a nice place to get away on the cheap, so you can spend your money on food drink and other activities.

Room Tip: Rooms are good everywhere however ask for one that faces the sunset.. Very nice indeed.

I stayed here for one night with my girlfriend on a road trip from NYC to Toronto in August 2013. We were both very tired and could not be bothered researching so we just left the throughway and took the first motel.

The owner is a middle aged Indian who speaks understandable English. Our room was reasonably clean and so was the bathroom. I cannot confirm any of the negative points mentioned in the other reviews.

The main light switch next to the door will shut down the sockets, too. Don't use it if you need to charge your mobile over night.

Overall an OK place if all you are looking for is a bed and a shower.

We stayed here for 3 nights and the only reason why we did was the owner, who spoke very little english insisted we paid the whole amount. The rate was very different then I was quoted on the phone. The room was had not been remodeled or updated for at least 50 yrs. The wallpaper was stained along with the ceiling. The shower and floor in the bathroom was disgusting. I woke with 2 bites on my back and suspect they may have been bugs in the bed. Next yearwe will drive to Utica even though it is farher then we would like

We have stayed here as a jumping off point for the big Madison-Bouckville Antiques Show every August since 1999, but no more. The facility has gone steadily downhill, and even more so since there seems to have been a recent change in ownership.. On our most recent trip in August, 2012, the room was unsatisfactory. When we came in, we found that evidently there had been a leak in the roof, and a piece of the ceiling had fallen down and was lying on the floor (nobody noticed???). There were problems in the bathroom with the water leaking. Facility is 1940's-50's vintage with no upgrades in 50 years. Pick another motel!
