I went through Hotel.com to book to nights at the Sky Top Motel. The Hotel web site described a "Victorian ambience, panoramic views of the Catskill, impressive pool, lawn games, old-fashioned swings and a beautiful gazebo round out the picture".Here's the truth: Victorian ambience - typical rundown hotel furniture in the lobby and rooms panoramic views of the Catskill - no view, it's choked with weeds and trees impressive pool - a 1/4 full of algae and green scum - my kids looked at me with amazement lawn games - does that include the folks drinking beer outside their room around a hibachi? old-fashioned swings and a beautiful gazebo - they are there, full of old TV sets!!!Besides all this, the rooms were dank, and smelled of disinfectant, the mattresses were old and lumpy, the dead mice in the parking lot were a nice touch and the management was completely unresponsive to our complaints about the all of above. Suffice to say we booked at a nearby Best Western (wow what a difference) and we were billed one nights stay by Hotels who while guaranteeing "Best Places" and satisfaction fell far short after numerous phone calls. I will never use Hotels again nor suggest to friends. A wholly miserable experience.......p.s. I asked that Hotels to review the false advertisement on their web site, 6 months later still the same information about this dump!
