I was driving home from my cottage in Canada and decided to stop by Corning, New York to visit the glass museum. Philadelphia was too far away to get there in one day.
I checked hotels from a rest stop, and everything was full! TripAdvisor gave me two hotels in Painted Post, and I called Corning Inn.
I woke up KP, the owner. His regular person was on vacation this weekend. He was sleepy, but he offered me the last room, a smoking room, if I wanted it. I could come see it. I got there 20 minutes later and called him again to wake him up. He showed me the room, and it was clean, simple two double bed room. One of the light bulbs was out, but the room had a refrigerator and a microwave. Beds were good enough.
Like another reviewer said, this hotel does the job!
(For the record, I skipped the NASCAR race and went to the museum, after 20 minutes of debate!)
KP was magnanimous. He talks quickly and sometimes is hard to understand but he is friendly, business saavy, and personable.
The hotel is a little worm down, no doubt, but it is clean, friendly, safe, and rates were $50 better than other major chains.
Breakfast was cereal, danishes, OJ and Apple Juice, and coffee. Just what I needed.
