The rooms are not too big depending on what kind you choose. WE always stay in room TEN. Is the best. VERY cozy. I feel like home. Tv is great with nine hbo tv CHANNELS plus the rest to choose from. They provide refrigerator and microwave. I like this hotel a lot. Mike at the reception tries to get us...

I know I shouldn't complain about a place this close to the city that you can book for $69, including tax, on a weekday. I won't complain about that. Instead, I'll complain that they don't advertise that it's $69 CASH and $2 more to use a credit card. And that they didn't have my room ready when I arrived. At...

This is a fine option for sleeping in this part of Northern New Jersey. Room rate was $75 for a double. The room was basic, but immaculate. Try to avoid #14, which is immediately facing Hwy 17, due to highway noise. I bring ear plugs. Book early for a non-smokng double.

Great price for a clean, quiet room. The Wi-Fi works and the beds are firm leading to smart stay well worth the price. This was my fifth stay (four nights this time) and I will gladly book my next stay there as I awoke refreshed and well rested each morning.

The fair was a pleasant surprise.Room rates are unbelievable. The rooms are clean and the staff, especially Michael , are friendly and welcoming. No, it's not the Hilton but for value and safety it's super

Stayed here when we were at a friends wedding in the area. Very clean rooms, pretty good service and accommodating when we had to check in late because of the time of the wedding. We saved a chunk not staying at the wedding hotel but got just as good accommodation here. Our room had a queen bed and was in...

Stayed here for two nights. Was told rooms are $63 a night if you pay cash and $65 if you use a credit card. I called two other places on route 17 all in Ramsey or USR and this motel and one other were 65 and the third was around $80. [Pros]: # had an issue & the owner apologized...

I stayed overnight at the Fair Motel and the name was quite appropriate. I had a non smoking double room that was clean and large. There was a flat screen TV with free cable, a fridge and a microwave, and free Wi-Fi with good coverage. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable room at a fair price and with...

The room we got, facing Route 17, really stank of mildew and the noise of passing traffic was terrible - beyond anything that ear plugs could stop. The carpet was utterly filthy - if you are foolish enough to walk on it with bare feet (as we did) take a look and your soles will be black. Also I find...

Exactly what I was looking for in a place to stay. When I travel to Ramsey for work, I tend to wake early and return late. As such, I am looking for a quiet place to lay my head at the end of the day. At first I was hesitant, but I got a room in the back and was...

“Avoid the rooms that face Rt 17. Be sure to specify a single or double if you have specific requirements. Be sure to specify and confirm non-smoking, if you want it. Call on morning of arrival to confirm reservation.”
