Looks nice from the outside and it's a pretty piece of property. The things you are likely to touch in the room look clean, but around the edges of the floors there is lots of dirt, lint and who knows what. Walls had globs of something on them, back of the door was revolting. Given the location and scarcity of...

Ewwwww, OMG and more. We walked in and ran the hell out. Requested our money back, after threatening we'd call the cops. We got our money back. 4 Girls on a girls weenend trip, a little wine tasting and some shopping and we were hoping for a nice nights sleep. Absolutely not. I won't go on with details. I would...

The service could just not balance the poor condition and quality of the rooms. The bright blue carpet and old blue tile bath I could live with, but the lighting was hideous, and the room felt so dirty. After staying at the W in New York, I felt like I went to hell at the Swiss. The owner/gentleman was so...

This little motel is a jewel. It is unpretentious, very quiet and has a charming garden and small lawn the width of the property that runs right down to waters edge on the Peconic River. When we first arrived I had my reservations, but the quietness and peacefulness of the setting grow on you. The rooms are bare basics, although...
