Burn marks all over the room. Water in shower is light brown and doesn't clear up. Dead bug made up in bed. Dirty dirty dirty...

I booked this motel almost a month in advance as my fiancé and I wanted to go to Howe Caverns and this was one of the cheapest places I could find. We checked in around 4pm on Saturday Aug 22, 2015. Immediately upon seeing the lobby area I should have followed my instincts, and ran for the hills. Instead, after...

I just stayed at this motel after a concert to have somewhere to sleep for the night. The exterior was poorly maintained, but my room was pretty nice, beds were comfy, shower and toilet were clean, cute flatscreen on the wall. Good for a quick stay

At least the police seem to check it regularly. Otherwise it was way below our standards. The motel is old and badly located, unless being near the Thruway is all you want. I found it depressing. We went back to using the Days Inn after staying here once.

The toilet had dried diarrhea on it and there was a missing handle on the sink. One of the customers was in the lobby complaining he saw...

$59 a night and allowed pets. We brought in our pets and bags and went out to get a quick bite to eat. Came back and bugs were crawling across the bed. Not 1,2 but many. At first they didn't want to refund my money until I said I want them to sleep in the room. Couldn't find another hotel...

The rugs? Crunchy. The sheets? I doubt they've been washed recently. The heart-shaped tub? I'm hopeful that the water gets hot enough to kill any pathogens that might be lurking within. Mirrors on the wall? Oh yeah, you know what I'm talking about! Do the amenities really matter to two teenagers looking to get busy in something other than the...
