“This is the Bates Motel !!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2011

Ok, I depend on Trip Advisor to help me out when I travel. I definitely feel let down this time. This hotel was old and scary. The carpets were dirty and the shower took 30 minutes to drain! Yuck, no one wants to stand in water while they shower. I called the front desk to complain and they said maintenance was gone:( I couldn't sleep because the place just creeped me out. No place to go if you are a woman traveling alone with children.

The floors were pretty flithy and the shower wouldn't drain. Also, not sure if there's a swamp nearby of something but the windows were literally covered in what looked like mosquitoes once the sun went down. Going to get ice outside was like entering the Temple of Doom. The chairs were kind of dirty too.

Hey at least the air conditioner worked.

There's a daily charge of $1.50 per day for the room safe (plus 3 different taxes!!) If you don't use it, ask for it to be removed from your bill when you check-out. Otherwise a good modest motel, good location, friendly staff, excellent housekeeping. However the low rates sometimes attract a more "casual" type of traveler. And bus groups. And truckers. Can get a little noisy some nights.

We normally do not stay at this chain but this one proved to be a lot better than the ones that caused us to only consider them as a last choice.

Plus.....
Non Smoking King Room on ground floor is large.
Very convenient location near I 90.
Spotless.
Bathroom had proper vented fan. (unlike some Courtyard Marriotts and Hilton Gardens)
LCD TV. (unlike many expensive hotels)
AC unit was new and quiet.
Free WiFi worked fine.
Fair price.

Minus......
Some noise from upper units.
Some parking spaces are awkward because of outside stairs.
No inside corridors.

We had stayed here when we went to visit niagara falls on july 4 weekend.its 30 miles away from the falls. The service is very good and the staff courteous. There is a free continental breakfast available in the morning. The room we stayed in didnt have a microwave and a fridge but we could manage without them. If you have a Aaa membership you can use it to get a discount
