My friends and I, and many other people i know, would rent these rooms to party in/throw parties. I am not suprised by all these bad reviews. The guy at the desk knew exaclty what we were there for and never got declined or thrown out, even with 30 drunk 19 year olds running around two joining rooms. Even we... More

I only stayed here once. I tend not to like hotels/motels where you get into your room from the outside. The room itself is OK, clean and quiet enough, but that outside door business lets it down, compared to similar places close by, at least that’s my view.

The location and price of this hotel makes it a very good choice for the passing traveler or any one visiting New York and not wanting to pay the price of Manhatten hotels or to enjoy the shopping of both Rt. 17 and Woodbury outlets. There is a train station close by that takes you to Manhatten. Descent rooms and... More

I woke up in the middle of the night to find a bedbug crawling on me. I put in in a cup and took it to the front desk... No surprise to the person at the desk. They offered me a "gracious" 25% refund, which I never received. I also never got my Wyndham points for my stay. When I... More

In town for business and tried to save $$. Not worth it. Kid at the counter was rude and felt bothered when I called for an early arrival. When I did arrive, he was dressed in a t-shirt, ripped jeans and sandals. Not very professional. The hotel looked like nothing has changed (or been cleaned) since the sixties. I cancelled... More

My stay at this hotel was much more than expected. Service was great and staff was friendly. Rooms were big and it looked like they upgraded their rooms since I stayed there last. I liked how there was a lot of open space at this hotel and I didn't feel like staying in a box. I would definitely stay here... More

Dirty and run down. Not well maintained at all. Towels had holes in them and were dirty. Sinks and counter tops were not clean. The continental breakfast was a joke. Carpets were poorly vacuumed.
