New Hartford, New York
Reviewed 12 February 2017 via mobile

Last minute reservation during road and family trip. Overpriced. Old establishment. Room... sink drain slow and tub plugged up... smelled like 'sewer.' Coffee pot not clean; room had 'gaggy' odor; grounds and pool area not clean. Rug had odor. Do not recommend.

I'm usually very positive about the many hotels that I stay in; but, unfortunately this is one place that I would definitely not recommend. From the outside, it looks very inviting, and there are areas that are pleasing to the eye such as the pool area; but, the place needs a lot of updating and general maintenance. As an example,...

the hotel is close to major attractions. The pool area is very attractive with separate pools for adults and kids. The whole hotel is showing its age and could use some updating and maintenance but is priced accordingly. Breakfast is better than most Comfort properties,Staff is very friendly. There was some illicit activity occuring but their security responded quickly. Would...

My husband and I stayed here for business for one night thinking that if the hotel was as nice as the pictures shown we would book it for the entire month of February while here for work. The overall exterior and lobby was nice, but our room was a completely different story. The bed was sagging and you could feel...

I needed a place to stay near the VA Hospital while my husband had surgery. They gave me a VA discount which I thought was wonderful. Nice, big, clean place. Comfy beds and quiet. A little road noise but not bad. Did not have the breakfast. Would stay again.

The hotel was very nicely furnished with beautiful grounds. The swimming pools were well suited for both children and adults. The room was spacious and comfortable and very quiet. The buffet breakfast had a large variety of choices. I would highly recommend this hotel!

Boynton Beach, Florida
Reviewed 24 January 2017

Booked online as "pet-friendly" hotel, which usually means there will be an added deposit on c/c to ensure room is clean when gone. At check-in, it's "that will be $30.00 extra for your dog to stay in your room with you, non-refundable, plus taxes." Really? A/C spewed a funky smell, so we couldn't use it overnight. Loud talking several times...

The pillows and bed were very comfortable. The breakfast is buffet style so that was nice. I will say, the bacon was a very cheap thin brand. Beyond that there was a good spread. Oatmeal, grits, eggs, three cereal brands to choose from, coffee, OJ. Great options. Be advised that this "hotel" is truly a motel with outside hall ways....
