Our weekend was completely ruined by this dirty, disgusting cheap motel which looks NOTHING like the pictures on their website! Bad enough the room was dirty and moldy smelling, but we figured we'd tough it out, as we had booked last-minute and had little choice. However, upon returning to the room after a wonderful day spent on the lakes and...

This place is filthy dirty and smelly. The bathroom had mold on the tiles and so much hair on the floor you could have made a wig. It was the most disgusting place we have ever stayed. It was so bad we cut our visit short and went back home.

I was very pleased with our stay. My husband and I were on our was to Niagara Falls, so we figured this would be a nice "in between" spot. After reading the reviews, I was scared! However, I figured it was just one night so we could live with it. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised by how clean...

My friend and I were staying at this hotel. The first night was okay, but by the end of the next day I noticed that I had spots on my arms and they were really itching. When I was looking at my arms, I saw a bedbug walking on my bed. I reported this to the frontdesk. They offered me...

Geneva is a beautiful area right in the heart of finger lakes in upstate N.Y, especially in spring. But this place puts a damper on your experience. If you are a seasoned traveller and are used to nice clean hotels with decent amenities this is not your place. I am not talking or expecting luxury. But at $69 a night...

Booked rooms for my sons gaduation from Hobart. Our family reserved 3 rooms total and they all had an odor. When we drove into the parking lot we knew that this was probably a mistake. The pictures on the internet are misleading. We went to purchase to lysoland candles to offset the smell. We just could not sleep there so...

At first I was somewhat apprehensive about staying here, as there was a gigantic silverfish on the access panel. However, I decided this was not any indication of the manner in which the hotel is kept up, since I find them in my condo all the time. Clearly, this hotel is a very basic accommodation that has not been updated...

I read the reviews before I booked this place so I was well prepared. Even my husband and daughter were getting anxious when I mentioned about the place and couldn't figure out what got into my head when I booked. Anyways to make a long story short, we were pleasantly surprised. It's not a Hilton but what can you expect...

If you can afford to stay anywhere else, do it! Old, needs updating, dirty! The location is on a busy street, but fortunately it's right across the street from a McDonald's, Dunkin Donuts and bagel shop. You'll need it because the continental breakfast is terrible, especially the coffee. There was a full kitchen in our room but no plates or...

The room was exceptionally clean and very pleasant. The complementary breakfast was very well attended to and the staff was friendly and very accomodating. We will stay again when in the Geneva area.
