“Yogi and Spouse run a nice place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2010

Had a car problem on Rt. 81 at the top of the hill outside New Milford. Blue Ridge was one of two lodgings within driving distance. Checked out the other place and immediately headed for Blue Ridge - you should do the same. Frankly, I'd have slept on a sofa at my mother-in-law's at that point. Of course she IS a great cook! Fortunately, the Blue Ridge had a vacancy and "Yogi's" wife discounted the rate to $55 due to my car trouble. The rooms are small, but immaculate with a firm full size bed, desk with chair, floor lamp, cable TV, mini-fridge and microwave. A/C is on the back wall - an inconvenient location, but it has a remote and it works. Never saw a heat control or outlet, but the room was comfortably warm on a chilly September night. Did I mention the free Wi-Fi? Small, but clean bathroom - the shower is a tad on the "too small" size and large people will be washing their legs with their butts in the wind. Two small tablets of soap, a (thin) wash cloth, hand and bath towel complete the amenities. If you only stay at the Ritz, you probably will not be happy here. However, if life's an adventure and you enjoy good value, don't hesitate to stay. The Green Gables, an Italian-American restaurant next door, serves decent food at reasonable prices (try the breaded and fried green beans and don't skip desert!) and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. Also try Murphy's Hot Dog stand across the road from the motel - terrific variations on the lowly dog - the Jimmy Dog is particularly good. The owner is a refugee from Bloomfield, NJ, so be nice to him. Bottom line - good value, friendly folks. Just don't expect anyone to be able to conjure up a repairman on the weekend. If the A/C breaks, heat to the Green Gables for a tall cool one.
PS - the local's told me the owner of the Blue Ridge was nicknamed Yogi due to his Asian heritage.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2008

We stayed in the hotel for three days during a wedding. The room was neat and recently rennovated. The first two days were great. On the third day the air conditioner stopped working. Being a Saturday, they said that they couldn't get anyone to fix it and they wouldn't give us a discount because we were still using the room. They actually accused me of making it up just because it was my last day. I took them to my room three times to show them how hot it was and they told me there was nothing they could do and that's as good as airconditioners work, even though it worked much better the first two days. The beds were also shorter than normal to accomodate the small room. It is a bargain, at 60 bucks per night, but you may not sleep well.
It rates good for cleanliness.
It rates very poor for service.
It rates very poor for friendliness.
And to end on a good note, I guess 2 nights out of 3 isn't too bad.

  • Liked — Seemed like a good deal a first
  • Disliked — I was called a liar to my face.

New Milford, Pennsylvania is a great place to explore the beautiful Endless Mountains region of Pennsylvania. Located roughly between Scranton, PA and Binghamton - closer to Binghamton, though - right off I-81. The Blue Ridge Motel is very reasonably priced, I paid $50 per night on a weekend and it was well worth it. All of the rooms were recently completely refurbished, it was like staying at a new motel that just opened weeks before. The room was smallish, but is was immaculately clean with cable TV, A/C worked and not noisy, a remote control that worked, pleasantly decorated in neutral colors, spotless new bathroom . This is just a roadside motel, but I can cerainly recommend it.
