This is not the Ritz, but for the price of the room, which was half of what the other chain hotels charge in Corning, this room was acceptable. When staying at a motel that is called the Economy Lodge, I look for a room that is clean, with clean sheets on the bed and everything working. For $45, we had a clean room with a double bed, free Wi-Fi, cable TV with HBO, in-room coffee, microwave and refrigerator, excellent air conditioning in 114 degree heat, a clean, and refreshing pool to swim in. Yes, the curtains, carpet and bedspread were worn, but acceptable. The managers (owners) are not very outgoing, but professional to deal with.
We broke down in Corning, and this community went out of their way to help us in every way imaginable. We were reduced to walking all over town, with summer heat between 112 and 114 during the three days we were there (it was a holiday weekend in which the repair garage was closed). The Napa Auto Parts store called every mechanic they knew to see if they could help us, and the tow truck driver drove us first to a truck stop, then to the repair facility, then to a hotel for...get this...a grand total of $60! He even gave us his card and told us to call him if we needed anything at all. All this, combined with a very reasonable stay at a reasonable motel made an unfortunate situation much less stressful.
I would recommend this motel for those traveling I-5 just in need of a clean room to stay overnight. We would stay here again should the occasion arise.
