We stayed here on our second night in the Rochester area after a bad stay at a motel 6 the previous night. The gentleman at the front desk was courteous and professional. Check-in was easy. The room is quite small but has all the amenities you might need like a mini-fridge, coffee maker, shampoo/conditioner, etc. The room was clean. The...

I stayed in the motels before, that is why I didn't expect such nice service. Very clean, no smells, nice bed. The breakfast was good. I think that the Towpath motel meets all the best expectations . I advice everybody consider staying in this motel.

We were in the Buffalo area and needed an unexpected spot to crash for the night. Room was clean. It's an older motel so keep that in mind. Nothing boutique or special. But for a bed and place to land it worked. The advertised continental breakfast was a stretch, it was coffee and apples. Plan on grabbing food some place...

Every other hotel I have ever stayed in had beds as hard as rocks, not here. The bathroom could use a little updating, but it was clean. We stayed here to visit my newly born Grandson. Rochester General was 10 min. away. Easy to get to and in a quiet neighborhood. Off street parking, good cable TV (not a lot...

Great place to stay. We had 2 rooms (teenage boys) and both rooms seemed very reasonable. Being a long way from home (Australia) felt safe and secure. My wife loved the flowering hanging baskets👍 Clean, tidy, no frills good night sleep.

I think the title of my review sums it up. Pure filth. I reserved rooms here because I was traveling with my dogs. Even they wouldn't put their paws on the floor without work boots. Needless to say, we checked in and checked out with 15 minutes of approaching the property.

This is definitely the place to stay if you want to stay in Rochester on a budget. The rooms have beds and betting. The thermostat is a little weird to work. There are bathrooms. Don't expect any frills, but I survived two nights without being cold or being robbed, without paying very much, so I consider it a win.

Thank Mike M
