you apparently can not always fine a winner with the certificate of excellent award. the worn out chairs and sagging mattress were not comfortable. it was not a motel room that welcomed you at the end of a day. so sorry I had booked in advance for a non-refundable 2 night stay. the room was clean and in a good location.

Hi rices1,

Thanks for taking the time to post a review. I do have to say the "sad depressing" part of your review for me, is you never said a word about what you felt was not up to par. We try very hard to make everyones stay at Christy's and to the area a happy memory and was not given a chance to make things right for you.

Hope the rest of your trip went well,
Steve

Rooms seem to have been recently remodeled, the carpet and paint looked
new. It's a nice place and conveniently located. The pool was closed for the
season, but I'm sure in the summer it is great. The owner was very friendly
and helpful. There is tea and coffee available in the office, and the ice machine
is located there as well. We did see a deer in the yard one evening.

Hi mrscleo,

From time to time we have a few deer stop by and take a nightly nap against the pool fence. They must feel safe or something when they do it, because it happens often.

Thanks for taking the time to post a review,

Nothing fancy here, but it has everything you need. Clean, pleasant, spacious rooms, nice pool. Steve, the owner, was friendly and welcoming and as someone else noted, it's biker friendly - he has a supply of wood squares to put under kickstands (thereby protecting our bikes AND his parking lot). Good location, not too far from downtown Old Forge but far enough to avoid the gridlock that hits on summer afternoons. A well-stocked convenience store/gas station across the street, and a liquor store next door! Coffee available in the office (limited hours). Rooms didn't have things like hair driers but I bet if you asked, the office had one they would lend you. One minor issue: I'm happy that the rooms are smoke-free. But the result, when we were there, was that all the smokers sat in front of their rooms puffing away, so we nonsmokers couldn't sit outside or even open a window. I don't see a solution to this (and I don't blame the motel).

Room Tip: I asked for a room at the back of the property, away from the highway. Probably doesn't really matter because I think the traffic on the highway dies down fairly early.

Hi Foodie,

Yes you are correct on the loaner hair driers and we also have a few irons for loan to. Thanks for the glowing review and hope you get the time for a ride to the north country again sometime.

This was our second year staying at Christy's. The rooms are clean, it's close to everything, and the kids were so excited to see the deer in the morning! Kids also really enjoyed watching the movie outside in the evening. Reasonably priced - we will be back next year!

Hi lar729,

Thanks for returning to Christy's and the Old Forge area for your family vacation. It's fun doing those little extra things for the kids and hearing them enjoy it. But I do have to say I can't take credit for the deer.

Thanks for taking the time to post a review,
Steve

I expected a classical old style motel as it looks from the outside, but was surprised the rooms are very clean and modern. The staff (owner) was very friendly. On Thursday night he brought out a fire pit to allow folks to gather. He also set up a large white screen with speaker and projected a Disney movie, Brave, for the kids and family. The outside is very well maintained as well as the pool area. It is very close to restaurants and across the street from a FasTrac, not far from a Kinney drug store for extra items or those unexpected situations. If I had any complaint it was the mattress was a little too bouncy for my taste. The rate was very good considering the height of tourist season and other motels in the area. My wife can be picky and was very pleased. I would not hesitate to return.
