My family was passing through Syracuse and found this little gem just off of the Thruway on our way to Niagara Falls. Even though it had an abandoned building next to it we all thought the "lodge" look of the hotel was very cool and the kids were happy to see a McDonald's right in front of it.
Once we had our Happy Meals and shakes, we checked in and were greeted by a very nice smiling lady at the counter. She was efficient and got us right in and we asked her a lot of questions about the area and she was able to answer them for us and even gave us a printed piece of paper with the area restaurants, malls, etc.
The lobby had a really beautiful enormous stone fireplace and nice furniture all around it and the desk lady said that is where breakfast would be served in the morning; I was also glad to see an ATM in the lobby.
Our room was on the third floor and had 2 queen beds and was very spacious and looked and smelled fresh and clean. There was an extra area near the bathroom for storage, luggage, and it had a mirror, too. The bathroom was nice, typical tile and granite, clean and bright. The furniture was nice, seemed to be a mix of old and new but they are redecorating and there was a list on the front desk that told of all the upgrades happening. There were signs around the hotel announcing the renovations but you really couldn't tell anything was going on, as it was cleaned up and not at all in the way. We were told the wallpaper in the hallways was all new and carpet was coming very soon.
The beds were comfortable and the TV was fine, heater was efficient and not too loud. We went downstairs for breakfast and were pleasantly surprised at the assortment to choose from and the person stocking it and cleaning was very good, kept everything going nicely.
All in all, we found it to be a very nice stay, clean room, friendly people and a very good breakfast, which saves a lot of money when traveling with kids.
