My girlfriend and I were just staying for one night as she had a flight out of the Rochester airport at 5:30am in the morning. The Motel was conveniently close to the airport. Our room was clean and smelled okay when we arrived. The staff was friendly and helpful. I noticed that they offered free HBO and when I turned...

The Towpath Motel was everything we needed: shower, beds, and wifi. It was relatively inexpensive, the place was clean, the managers on duty were both strange and hilarious, and the one night we stayed there went just fine. On the other hand, we were stuck in a smoking room which smelt terrible, the shower inadvertently filled up the bathtub giving...

I had stayed at this motel years ago and it was 'okay' then and convenient to relatives. 1. There was no record of my reservation which had been completed through the hotel itself. 2. While I was eventually registering, a 'lady of the afternoon' was registered with cash and no identification. 3. The 'non smoking' room smelled of smoke and...

The room was clean and adequate for the money. Only slept there. Only had difficulty with wifi,resolved on the last night of my stay. The manager was pleasant and helpful. I would use this motel again as it was close to one of my family members.

The building itself needs some major TLC but the room was very clean and the bed comfortable. Good price and value. Internet reception was very poor and that was a big disappointment. Breakfast was very minimal as well. Good place to stay if your just passing through.

Good value. AC eventually cooled the room. Wi-fi signal too weak for smartphone although the owner insisted the router was on the roof above the room. To be fair he did offer to move us to a second floor room to be closer to the router.

My family and I just stayed for my sons graduation from Nazareth and we had a great stay. The manager was very helpful with directions and local places to eat. The rooms are older but it looks like they are making small improvements. Ask for a room on the second floor as the balcony provides for a nice breeze and...

My friend and I came to Rochester for the Lilac Festival and to visit our sons. Many of the hotels were booked and the prices quit high. I found the Two Path Motel on line and it looked very nice and affordable. It had good reviews. When we arrived there and checked in....we found it to be a different story....

I have stayed at this motel several times and have always found it to be a great experience. They are a family-run business and succeed in making you feel welcome. Their rooms are clean and include a microwave & refrigerator. I would recommend this motel to anyone looking for a good price, clean room, and good location (right off 590).

We had a pretty good though limited continental breakfast: a choice of Cheerios or Raisin Bran, with a pastry (choice of Breakfast Claw and Fruit Horns) and Sunny D to wash it down. Not exactly fancy, but it was okay. Some of the items in our room looked brand new. This isn't the location for you if you want to...
