This place is very run down. The exterior needs serious maintenance and the interior is like walking back in time to the 70s. We had a king bed which was comfortable enough but all the other furniture (desk chair, futon) was old and so low...More

I am sorry you found our facility to be such a disappointment. This years’ weather patterns have presented challenges to our landscape development and I apologize for any inconvenience. As far as the room itself, the 70’s were not known for having flat screen cable...More

We decided, last minute (literally 11 pm the night prior), to celebrate our anniversary in the finger lakes. June, right before the season started. Hotel after hotel, call after call, we couldn't find anything. Came across this wonderful gem on TripAdvisor and put in the...More
