The view is amazing, very quiet, and relaxing, there's pond and picnic area to overlook. Only on weekends the breakfast here was AMAAAAZING!! There's your typical buffet-like continental breakfast...then the owner made something special and there's fruits!! You'll be really full when you leave. Rooms were basic and clean, your typical motel. There's really not much to complain about. Everybody...

Our party had 2 rooms here. The rooms were in poor shape with a foul odor, my pillow smelled BAD and I tried to keep my face on a neck pillow that I had with me old mattresses, mold on the tub and shower curtain, big stains on the carpet and comforter, the WiFi didn't work, no clock, no hair...

I was traveling with my three kids and couldn't find any other place. The room was very bad as soon as I walked in the stale smell hit us in the face (mold cigarette). The beds looked as if people had been laying on them. The toilet and sink in the bathroom had dirt in them. The toilet overflowed after...

This motel is clean enough and the rooms are a nice size. Everyone at the front desk is more than accommodating and there is hot coffee and munchies in the morning. The only reason I can't give this location a higher rating is the condition of the rooms. Inadequate mattresses and old, lumpy comforters make the bed less than appealing....

The only thing this motel had going for it was the convenience to where I needed to be, but I have since heard from others who travel in that area that both the Super 8 and EconoLodge are much better. To begin with, the window was open upon my arrival, and I think the fresh air concealed the overwhelming smell...

To begin, ceilings were irregular and a rough surface and wear on the walls needing repair. Lamps were from the 60's and not a good lighting system. Basic furnishings. King size bed was comfortable. Old style TV but was adequate. Wifi was available. Bathroom had mold on the tiles, walls, shower curtain, otherwise, room seemed clean as was the linen....

A basic motel, and it was clean, comfortable and cheap. Staff was friendly and helpful. Two beds in the room, one mattress was new (I only checked the one, and yes, it was bug free!). Towels ok (not plush, but not threadbare), sort of the theme for the hotel: good enough for the normal traveller. If you want high-end, then...

I want to preface this and say that I knew that going to a motel, I wasn't expecting anything beyond basic (clean bed, bathroom), but no fancy amenities. When I arrived late on friday night, I was pleased that the room we requested met at least those basic requirements and plus, there was a TV,mini fridge and even shampoo/conditioner and...

Our room was clean, comfortable, and had the promised wi-fi access. The location is fine...a 5 minute ride to town. A good home base for hiking at Mohonk Preserve and exploring the town. We'd definitely stay here again.
