I was in town to visit family, and my brother and I booked a room at the MTMI. Upon arrival we were exhausted and went straight to bed on the dingy, cold sheets, as the heat in the room barely worked. When we awoke we found a moldy ice bucket bag, and a used condom in the corner of the...

However, once we walked into the rooms, flipped on the light and I was very pleasantly suprised! Don't get me wrong... this is no four star hotel by any means.. but the rooms...

The review by the airline pilot earlier in August sounds exactly like my opinion. It isn't a 5-star hotel, but it is clean and comfortable. The bathroom is just wonderful with the style of an old home - nice tile and fixtures. The king size bed and desk area were very comfy. All appliances worked well - A/C, microwave and...

I didn't see the previous reviews but looked up a place to stay on my GPS while driving to Niagara Falls. It looked average so I decided to check the room out first before I paid. Serendipity. My wife even liked it. Large room, king size bed, clean sheets and towels. A/C worked well, so did the fridge (to keep...

Our first clue about our impending stay was when we asked where the pool was. "Oh, it's out there, we filled it with dirt and put plants in it. but you can sit in the patio chairs by it" the decor is retro 60's, actually it's real 60's. even the dirt is old. Toilet paper is included but you have...
