It was just a stop on our road trip from Toronto to NYC. We thought to grab some bargains in the nearby Woodbury common outlets, which we did. And I was happy, but not for the motel. Honestly, it's not even up to the motel standard, I've stayed in hostels better than that. I finally decided not to have a... More

The Motel is an older place but was exactly what my husband and I needed for one night: The bathroom was clean, the bed was clean and comfortable and the area is quiet. Across the street there are several businesses, if you want to pick up a quick bite to eat.

The room seemed to be a work-in-progress... but the carpet was definitely age old and actually turned our feet black! It was a rainy weekend and the upper deck landing had a squelchy give spot that was concerning as well as the torn-at-the-riser-top astroturf cladding on the stairs causing some concern for heel-catch on the way down the steps. I... More

After a long day flying in from Manchester, picking a car up and navigating out of Newark we didn't want to drive to far. Monroe was the spot and James Motel was the place. Clean, bit tired but you can see its a working progress. Friendly guy checking us in. Fabulous location not far off highway and lots of places... More

We stayed here one night in order to be close to the outlet center. It is a family run motel so the owner's live on the premises and, as stated, they are new owners. They appear to be working on updating the motel and, thankfully, they started inside the rooms. Our room was a very large, king bed room. The... More

My family stayed at The James Motel for 5 days while visiting family in Middletown. The new owners are extremely considerate and did everything possible to make our stay comfortable. They are extremely sweet people and even went so far as to run and give me an umbrella one day while I was bringing my baby in from the rain... More

My family and I stayed at the James Motel for five days. The owners were very nice, and were there anytime we needed them. The rooms are very affordable, beds extremely comfortable, and had everything you would need for an extended stay. We were able to upgrade our room with no problems, when we requested. We just wanted a bigger... More

It is not much to look at from the outside, but the new owners are putting everything they have into it. The rooms have been redone with modern furniture, new beds and bedding and all amenities you would need (TV, coffee maker, microwave, small fridge). The rooms are very clean, the beds are extremely comfy. I will not lie there... More

The James Motel is an old building, and clearly had fallen into disrepair. New owners have made some improvements and repainted everything, but it is certainly rough around the edges, at least when compared to a typical chain motel. It is also about half the price of its nearest competitors. My room was clean and air-conditioned, with two very comfortable... More
