“Definitely going back, hats off to the new owners”
Reviewed 24 June 2012

my husband and I had made reservations for the weekend and we were a little afraid because of the reviews since we were traveling with our baby and the dog. when we got there we were happily surprised with the motel, the new owners are redoing the place very nicely and they were extremely friendly and provided excellent service, the place was very clean, everything looked brand new, the bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was decent, there are flat screen tv on the rooms, the bathroom was a little small but nice. we will definitely go back.

Stopped by in a local restaurant for a very late dinner on our road trip ro niagara. We asked the waitress if she have any recommendation to spend d night and she gave us this place. Called to check the rate and it sounded reasonable $80+ with tax for that night. we also checked out chalet motel but it was more xpensive so we decided to look at this place first.
2 miles to downtown manchester village. Room 16 had a new paint smell when we walked in. Bathroom, furniture, carpeting looks new. The couple who are d new owner were very pleasant and accomodating .
Will definitely return if me or my family is ever in d area.

I didn't stay - but stopped in for a look - rooms are a bit smaller than chalet motel, and access is via an internal hallway, but things were nice and clean, and owners said all new mattresses, there is new paint and carpet and flat screen Tv in the rooms I saw. At 70$ a night this might be worth a try. Downsides - I cannot say how the noise is here, and there may be some fresh paint smell to deal with for a while, but price is definitely right. A young Indian couple is renovating the place.

Reviewed 17 August 2011

Well, this is almost comical. We drove up to the motel and they were having a garage sale; selling off big pieces of furniture. In addition, there was a big sign saying that the motel was being auctioned off. Bad sign. I had read the reviews and had tried to get another place but many of the motels wouldn't book for just one night, and others were booked up completely. Well, the room was worn out and old. The carpet was multi-stained and torn. The bathroom door didn't close completely. There was a huge web with a spider and several dead insects under the table in the room. In the bathroom, the shower curtain looked new but there was an even bigger web and spider by the toilet. My nephews wanted to check out the pool. There was no chlorine in it...just a hose stuck in. There were beer cans, towels, cigarette butts and just general trash everywhere. EWWW. We decided to spend as little time as possible at the motel so we went out. Later, we were kept up by one of the owners who was drinking out of a paper bag. He was loud and definitely drunk. I'm not surprised these rednecks lost their motel.

The people that own and run the place were slovenly rednecks! Unavailable, discourteous, unkempt and lazy! We had to track them down, finding them at the pool, totally disinterested in our checking in needs. As we drove around to our room (last one in the back, so we could see that all of the rooms from the outside were the same) we could see how falling apart the building was. We could barely get in to our rooms, the key and lock so crude. Of course, the dead bolt didn't work, once inside the room. Cinder block construction, the curtain was half off which quickly became completely off when I tried to fix it. The bathroom door didn't close, the soap dish in tub....well...you would just have to see it to believe its 'fixed' construction. The tiny TV (from the '60's) remote didn't work. The small air conditioner looked toxic (mold), although we had to use it and it did work!
I can not imagine anyone returning to this place, after being duped in to going there. I only went (not realizing the conditions) because I was so late in reserving a room, that there were no others in town available.

Room Tip: Reserve early in this beautiful town! All the good hotels fill up fast!!!!!

this is the worst hotel, by far, that i have ever stayed at! I traveled with several friends, all getting out own rooms. There were stains on the floors, one room had a caved in floor, another had the light socket out the wall. The pools was discusting as well. And don't be fooled by the website. The game room was shut down and so was the min-golf course. It was also one of the most expensive in the area as well. We all actually refused to stay there.
