Two middle-aged motorcyclists stayed here for one night while touring the Finger Lakes region. It was exceptional clean and well cared for. Owner operator Ernest was friendly and helpful. Highly recommend for similar stays.

First impression was not favorable. There were weeds growing in the driveway and the grass was not well trimmed. Other than that and a light not working over the bathroom sink all was good. Very pleasant. Owner very helpful. The room was very clean and beds comfortable.

Nice to have you staying with us, because its great customers like you that keeps us humming along, ….Happy Trails !

The rooms were very clean, and while it's an "old style" motel, it suited our group of 4 couples perfectly. The outdoor space was very pleasant, and Ernie couldn't have been more accommodating. It was a great value, in a great location, for a peaceful and fun trip!
