The Howe Caverns Motel exceeded my expectations. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The motel is situated at the top of a hill with excellent views of cows in pasture just outside the large window in each room. A short walk down the hill brings you up-close and personal with a nearby farmer's livestock. The entrance...

The cavern is spectacular, definitely worth the trip. The motel is a little dated but extremely clean. My only complaint with the family suite is the shower, plenty of hot water but not a lot of pressure. It was only one night, so we survived.

After watching an I ❤️NY commercial, I quickly checked the website! I was excited to see that there was a package available for a Halloween Lantern Tour with room accommodations which was quite affordable. So glad I decided to book. After a long drive from Queens, NY we arrived and were taken back by the beauty of grounds. Such tranquility....

My boyfriend and I went on a mini vacation to Howe Caverns as we hadn't been on any kind of vacation in awhile. He had never been in a cavern of any kind and wasn't sure about it at all. He loved it and wants to see more as long as they're within a four hour drive.

One level motel , double queen room, double sinks, microwave, frig. Refurbished section. Rooms that are not will be starting in October, Swimming pool. Very convenient to the activities. Absolutely beautiful view, and we're lucky to have perfect weather!

We didn't expect such updated lodging. The packages are well worth it - all the extra "goodies" were a welcome treat! The rooms are all newly furnished and roomy. The bathroom is also new - deep tub- relaxed in a hot bath after the cold cave tour. Staff is genuinely friendly and helpful.

We arrived on Saturday and did some of the adventure park, checked in, ate dinner and then did the flashlight tour.The motel is older,but everything was clean and much roomier than most motels. Service was good.

We stayed here for one night while visiting Howe Caverns and the Adventure Park they have there. The entire stay and experience was a lot of fun. One thing that management must change is the way they offer the packages. If you purchase a package which includes cave tickets and other treats included they won't give you the tickets etc....

We stayed here one night and had a great time with our son. The room we stayed in was recently renovated. When we checked in we were given all the information about Howe Cavern and we even got recommendations on where to eat. The outdoor pool was small but clean. We will definitely stay here again.

This is a very sweet little motel right on the Howe Caverns property. The room was very clean and everyone working at the motel and the caverns were friendly and helpful. We were there on a Friday night and it was quiet and peaceful. The view of the valley is truly spectacular. You walk right from your room up to...
