          We booked on Expedia and paid about $100 Cdn. It is an older place, adequate, but no coffee machine or refrigerator and only one queen bed. Needs updating, new beds, bedding, etc. Smelled a bit musty. They said breakfast was included in the reception area....More

          Stayed overnight on a short trip to Finger Lakes. Motel had clean rooms and very helpful staff. Tables and umbrellas outside office for relaxing. Good value and close to the lovely Skaneateles. We would stay here again.

          The Bird's Nest is far from a luxury motel. If you want shampoo, go to the front desk and ask for it. Breakfast? Thomas' Bagels, a few packaged sweets and coffee. No frig, microwave or hair dryer. What you will find is a pleasant receptionist,...More
