So as long as you are expecting a typical motel with best western amenities you'll love it. We had a king size bed which was nice, we wanted to use the couch but were told that the sheets will be extra so TIP: if you want to use the fold out couch bring your own sheets and comforter!
The only issues we had were that (1) we were told the hotel is all booked up when we tried to book the room so we paid a little more than we should have but in reality judging by the cars in front of each room it looked like it was 1/2 booked up at most - maybe that is how they can charge higher rates (2) some guy's car alarm kept going off at night every 10 minutes for about an hour at 2 am one night and (3) you have to go outside to get to the breakfast area which isn't very pleasant in the winter when it is 10F but nothing can be done about that since motor lodges don't have hallways connecting rooms. Not having hallways is also a good thing - no kids running up and down hallways.
The breakfast is great: waffles, sausages, bagels, eggs, etc. - TIP: sit in the conference room to avoid getting cramped in the small breakfast room. We did have neighbors judging by the cars but we didn't hear them.
The restaurants in the area are a little dated so you need to go closer to some ski resort to get good food - 30-45 minute drive so plan your day so you eat in some other town.
It is nice to have dunkin donuts, walmart and price chopper within easy walking distance for nightly food runs. There is also a bowling place across the street. Overall this is good value for what you get.
