“not even for $30.00 a night!”
Reviewed 20 January 2010

I was in Utica due to a family medical emergency. Got this room online thru orbitz at $45.00 a night. I figured ok, it wouldt be much & I knew I wasn't going to be there very much anyway. My lack of expectations was even shocked at how bad this place was. I believe that orbitz states that you get a free continental breakfast. Well...Orbitz forgot to verify this information. You get nothing. They do have a coffee maker (no pot), a toaster & a microwave in the "lobby", so I thought that is where breakfast would be. Next morning, nothing out there. Nothing there the next morning either.
The hallway... smells like cigarette smoke. VERY overwhelming. At least room 103 didn't smell like it.
Want shampoo? NOPE. All you get is soap.
Remote for the TV? yep, they have one, but it didn't work.
High Speed internet access? supposedly, but I couldn't connect.
I wouldn't stay here again even for $30.00 a night.

we stayed in utica in order to pick our daughter up at camp in the aderondaks the next morning. when we arived there were few parking spaces in front and no airconditioning in the tiny loby. we paied for our room a king smoking when we got up the stairs we found two double beds and a roach on the wall under the picture. so we got our money back and went to the Radisson.

  • Disliked — the roach on the wall

Reviewed 13 March 2008

As we got there from a long drive, saw the un-inspiring front, but we said maybe its better inside. We go in and "WHAM" the smell of closed in spaces,not to fun for a 1st impression. He gives us the cards to fill out, but i insisted in seeing the room before, wich he agreed too, went to see it. As i went in, i double tracked out of there, the smell was every where, no windows opened small even tiny room, hardley space too move around, and cleanliness was not up to par. So we left. My parents smoked and wanted a room on the 1st floor, none were smokers. but since we were leaving, he was ready to make a non-smoking into a smoking, mom asked if that was honest way to go, and he replied he could do what he wanted. What a way to uphold the law. "don't recomend it to anyone."
