Prattsville, NY, was the scene of a disastrous flood in 2011. It still has a huge amount of damage visible and a long way to go to full recovery. Moore's Motel had its first floor under water. They have renovated the first floor rooms in one of the motel buildings so the furnishings of these rooms are entirely new. The only old things I could see are the bathroom floors and the ceiling tiles.
This is a budget motel so the rooms and furnishings are not fancy or luxurious. But they are clean and new. I would probably normally rate this 3 circles and wish I could give them 3 1/2 circles. But because of the difficult circumstances in Prattsville, I will round up instead of down and award 4 circles.
Our room had 2 full size beds. The mattresses were comfortable but slightly soft for my taste. The bathroom had new fixtures. It was adequate but barebones. No hairdryer. The room had a microwave, refrigerator and TV, but no coffee maker. The electrical outlets had not yet acquired cover plates, which is somewhat dangerous. The doors had no deadbolts but the town is very safe so probably they aren't regarded as necessary. The newly refurbished rooms are numbered 1 - 4. The 2nd story rooms are 5 - 8 and haven't been renovated as recently.
The motel advertises a swimming pool but it appears to be damaged and is not currently open. The grounds look as though they were pleasant but sustained a lot of damage. They haven't quite recovered but there is some new landscaping visible, so progress is being made. If you are traveling in the area and want an inexpensive place to stay, this would be a good choice.
