$200/night for an unfriendly front desk, ancient decrepit room that stank of mildew and a continental breakfast not worth the time to try and toast the pathetic cheapo bagel. Fixed the breakfast by dumping in the trash and going next door to Dunkin'. Everything we had I the room had to go through the wash to try and remove the...

In need of MAJOR work. Bathroom was terrible, fridge did not work. It may be best if completely demolished and rebuilt. Not clean and the flooring was disgustingly dirty. We were stuck with nothing else available for 30 miles. BEWARE

This hotel should be torn down and replaced. Totally run down, dirty, musty, outdated television and miserable staff, housekeeping and customer service. We stayed here for the dog shows and will not stay here again. When I made the reservations I requested a first floor room due to pulmonary issues (shortness of breath) and other health issues. When we arrived...

Worst place I have ever stayed, hands down. Filthy, smelly, cramped, no bedside reading lamps, lacked outside lighting in the back, felt unsafe, especially when taking my dogs outside after dark. People lurking around the parking lot at night. Just plain disgusting.

Stayed here in August for 3 nights. The room itself was very nice. Clean & comfortable. The bed was very comfortable. Unfortunately, the outside of the hotel is run-down and not very attractive looking. But, the place is inexpensive and good enough for a short visit to the Finger Lakes.

Place is really sprawled out, we drove past the welfare hotel section on way to our room. The smell was terrible, no place to put clothes, no place to sit: nothing but bed, TV (didn't work), and a Jacuzzi. Bathroom looked like it was falling down. Complained to desk clerk and was told this was one of the better rooms....

Okay. We stayed at this location for about 9 days. This place is a real roll of the dice. I'd read the online reviews (and they were gross: mold in rooms, inadequate locks, questionable linen, unsavory guests, etc) but knew that we needed to get the most bang our bucks. The curb-appeal of this place. Uh, what curb appeal? The...

Do not stay here!!! Mold in room! Dirty bathroom! Bathroom sink drains directly to the floor. No phone or alarm clock in room! Internet does not work... So slow we couldn't connect to anything. Only stayed here because area was all booked up. We will never stay here again.

We stayed here because all the other hotels were booked up. I was a little hesitant when booking but we had no choice since nothing else was available. This was by far the cleanest inn I've ever been too. We had an inside king bed room. My mom and cousin had an out side double bed room. All were clean....

Strong odor of mold in room. Towels were filthy. Crumbling stairs to second floor. Door lock was not secure. Inches of dust present on bathroom screens. Live plants growing from falling down rain gutters. It was allegedly the last room available. We were out of there ASAP in the morning. Seems like a real health hazard. Probably too dirty even...
