“Clean cheap retro motel”
Reviewed 27 June 2008

An old motel on the the edge of town. It looks shabby but it's clean, the room was fine and it did the job for one night for the price. We stayed here before driving up to Montreal. No pool, no coffee in the lobby but we had no complaints,

  • Liked — It was cheap and on the way to where we were headed.
  • Disliked — No pool or HBO
  • Stayed June 2008, travelled as a couple

I cannot believe that the previous rater gave this motel a good rating. The place is dirty and run down. I only stayed here because all the other places were booked. There was a large hair in the blankets! That is just to give you an idea of what the place was like. The carpet was also old and run down. This is not a good place, it gets very low class people too. It is not the safest of places. Avoid at all costs.

  • Liked — That the front desk staff let me check out early without penalty. That was the only plus.
  • Disliked — The cleanliness, lack of pool, low class people who stay here because it is cheap.
  • Stayed July 2004, travelled with family

I found this motel in my travels. The motel was very clean, the staff was more then helpful. I couldn't believe what came with the room for the cost. Free internet, phone, cable tv, fridge, micowave. I will make sure that I stay there again when I am up that way. If anyone is traveling through Plattsburgh make sure to stay there.

  • Liked — great staff and shopping
  • Disliked — nothing everything was fine
  • Stayed March 2007, travelled as a couple
