We stay here once or twice a year for the dog shows at the fairgrounds. While the room decor is dated with a 50s/60s feel, we continue to go back. The rooms are good size with parking outside your door. Lots of room to walk the dogs. We often eat at the restaurant and the meals and service are great!... More

Had a great time. Owner is very friendly. Food at the restaurant is fabulous. They cater to your every need. Great entertainment. Close to all the attractions that we wanted to see. This is our second year staying there. Will stay again in the future.

Rooms are dated small but clean. they are priced cheap. The restaurant is open till 1:30 am during the fair. Wednesday night is not the night to go there. the server that night has a major attitude. Food choices were good

Looking for a clean, quiet, comfortable, inexpensive place to stay and not needing weight room, pool, breakfast, and some of the other chain amenities? This is the place. Yes, decor is from the 50s with lime green bathroom facilities and knotty pine paneling, but the room was spacious, the beds comfortable, everything was clean, and even though it is a... More

I cannot speak for the motel as we did not stay here and only came for dinner. The dining room was a bit dated with lots of knotty pine on the walls and older furniture. It looked liked a restaurant from the 60's, but it was very clean. Our server was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. We both had the Friday... More

Basic hotel, reasonably clean but a little faded with beds that proved to be a little past their prime, although linen was clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Restaurant food was good, plentiful and with excellent service from the wait staff. The location and hotel are not is an area we would normally visit, but proved to be perfect... More

We've stayed here several time while participating in dog shows in the Syracuse area. The rooms are dated (1950's-1960's look) and a little run down but everything is kept very clean. There is a restaurant and bar on the premises that's good and very reasonably priced. The owners are the people manning the front desk and along with the people... More

Although the motel is outdated and does not have non-smoking rooms (the only major negative as this stay our room smelled strongly of smoke), it is close to the fairgrounds and we stay twice a year for the local dog show. The room is always clean and there is plenty of green space to walk dogs. The restaurant is very... More

We were passing through the area and had been calling and calling hotels looking for a place to stay. Everyone, absolutely everyone, was full, except Western Ranch Motor Inn, and now we know why. The room was extremely dated, which I don't mind, if it is clean. This room was not. Housekeeping did a good job with clean towels and... More

Although I have never stayed a this motel, we recently stopped here for dinner. The food was surprisingly very good, as well as the service. We have no complaints whatsoever. It was good simple home cooked food at very reasonable prices. The check for two of us including two non-alcoholic beverages came to only around $20.00. It is a quiet... More
