I was doing a scenic drive down hwy 5 past sundown when I came across this facility. The outside looked clean and neat so I checked in - the operator said the going rate was $89 and then hastened to change that to "give me a deal" at $69.

This is not a $69 hotel - the sheets were thin and had been around smokers, the furniture is seriously outdated and stained, the toilet didn't flush properly, the fridge was noisy, there was regular train traffic passing nearby, and there was no breakfast. In addition, one of the occupants had a dog that started barking around 7AM.

On the plus side, I was able to get a good nights sleep, there was a nice view outside, and the WiFi worked reasonably well.

Room Tip: Insist on inspecting the room they want to give you first and don't be afraid to barter for a be...

If you like train watching this place is PERFECT. A double track runs right out front and you get a great view of every CSX train going by. The first room we were given had problems with the curtain rod and we were given another room. The rooms are bare bones - but clean. The heat is a space heater that did just fine for us. The A/C is a window unit stuck in the back wall. The bathroom was TINY - but functional and clean as a "vintage motel" can be. The staff was friendly and helpful. We needed to be in Canajoharie so the location was the important factor in choosing this place. Overall, it is a budget, no frills place to stay.

Enjoyed the Budget Inn after having stayed at a one star motel in Albany that had a lot less to offer. This place is homey and has excellent staff. The door shuts fully and you do feel like you are somewhere-- close to trains, boats, nature...

Just down the road is a shopping center and within walking distance is the quaint country town of Canajoharie. Coffee was excellent. Yes, there is no breakfast but take time to walk into town and you can eat at several interesting restaurants... Convenient and picturesque...

Space heater for heat - not enough to keep the room warm,
Shower and fridge, covered with mold and mildew

The worst hotel I have ever visited, walked in, walked out - the first ever that we refused to stay.

Disputing the charges that the hotel staff refused to refund.
