Stayed at the Utica Red Roof for an overnight pit stop en route to Boston, primarily because of the renovated rooms. It's still nothing fancy, but definitely newly outfitted and therefore clean without all the years of wear and tear.
This Red Roof is an old school motel without hallways, i.e. exterior access to your room. After reading earlier about internet connection issues, I had requested a room with good wifi when I originally booked online. Our room assignment was near the property's SW corner, facing away from the complex (vs. facing onto the courtyard and other rooms), and the wifi worked fine.
Our room didn't have any carpets (fake hardwood panel floors instead) because it was handicap accessible (not requested), but the lack of carpeting probably added to the new feeling. The room size is a bit smallish but adequate for a couple. Although there's a rail line nearby, the property is surrounded by a lot of mature trees and it was very quiet.
Handy bar refrigerator, good AC unit. Didn't need the microwave. Flat-screen TV was great and had a good channel selection. Comfy king bed. The workspace area is an extended counter-top and was pretty cramped with just a single laptop on it.
We didn't feel like going out for dinner so we hit the Master Pizza a few miles away on the edge of downtown Utica and brought it back to the room. Quick easy checkout in the morning, with no problems getting right back on I-90.
One thing I should add -- there was a disproportionate number of people traveling with dogs staying here, so if that bothers you for whatever reason, you might want to look somewhere else.
