This hotel was clean, but let's face it, no one should recommend it unless it's to their sworn enemy. We booked it online and when we arrived were told they sold our queen room and charged us more to stay in a king, which was by no means cheap for the product offered!! We wanted to leave but there was so much confusion around the charge that we finally just stayed. When we got to our room it was a concrete box with a dated bathroom & giant window that looked out into the traffic. After watching TV (they got cable) for a few minutes we passed out from exhaustion from our trip, only to awaken every few hours when the train went by honking its horn loudly and waking us. Needless to say, we woke up early & tried the Denny's that was recommended on this site. To our surprise it was a bit "tired" at best, with water damage to the ceiling and dim quarters. The place has seen better days.
Positives of the trip include: good water pressure in shower, cable TV, no bed bugs (I checked it was clear). I won't be going back, but if you must stay here it's clean just not a pleasant nights sleep & a bit of a steep price for what you get. The place next door was much nicer, but when we tried to reserve a room was completely booked up. If you can, try to keep driving to Utica.
Also, parking was limited and watched by the smoking manager at night. If you parked in Denny's there were signs threatening to tow.
