I have hundreds of bed bug bites. I paid $1600 to exterminate my apartment because I think I brought the bed bugs home. The room smelled like the cleaning chemicals had to hide even a worse odor. you get what you paid for.

if you like people who can't speak english, change their agreement once you have the room key, and charge more after doing so, then by all means rent a small cramped room from Erwin Motel. Just watch you personal belongings! they will take them while you are out of the room!

After a long, long day driving and getting terrible directions, we finally found a motel with vacancies. The front desk clerk was very nice but the room was horrible. It was better than sleeping in the car, however, not by much. The box springs had visible rips, the blinds were filthy, there was a punch hole in the bathroom door... More

My husband and I visited the Corning museum in Corning, NY. I looked around for a hotel when we decided to go there and nothing was available for the Saturday night we would be there. I looked north as we would be headed to Rochester next and found Painted Post and the Erwin Motel. This is the original motorcourt of... More

Rooms were very small. Wireless internet did not work. Front desk was okay and friendly. If your looking for a cheap place to stay for a day or two this wouldn't be bad. Any more than that and you might be cramped in the room and shower. Erwinna tavern next door was a plus though.

This is a low budget motel about 7 miles out of Corning. Rooms are tiny, but clean. Location is quiet. If you want to enjoy Cornings attractions for $50 a night in high summer, than take it. If you can afford better, than skip this place.

As the first review says, nothing fancy. The motel is rather small, but if you just need a place to crash while moving on, this fits the bill. I don't remember what I paid, but it was affordable.

I used the Erwin Motel web site twice to request a reservation. My email appeared to go through but I never got a response. The cost for rooms is not listed on the web site.

We were looking for an inexpensive place to stay, and based on the two reviews we read on tripadvisor decided to give the Erwin a try (especially after the owners said the rooms were "renovated"). We booked a queen size room (the largest they have before the suites) which we were told was "roomy and renovated." We arrived in the... More
