It was horrible. The rooms smelled wretched. The owners are horrible as well. If you go there, be prepared to hold your nose. This is not a family place. I would never bring anyone to that place ever again. The bathrooms were awful. The quality was just poor!

Lousy, smelly, smoky rooms. We made a reservation over the phone, but they didn't have rooms for us when we got there. We had to settle for something less. One room didn't have a dead-bolt lock, and the bathroom had a leaking sink and toilet. Bugs in the room (everything from spiders to earwigs, the A/C was loud, the beds...

Things must have changed with the new ownership. My husband and son stayed here while on a visit to the mines back in June and found their stay to be very good. My husband said the room was comfortable and bathroom clean. Above all, the management went out of their way to make SURE that all was ok ( as...

I was unable to force myself to stay a night there, in fact I was there for 15 minutes. Everything was depressing to me: the hole in the upholstery, TV set from the 50th, the non-working coffee making device (true antique - combines a shelf and hot plate), non-working window treatment on the small window, the only a source of...

We booked this motel based on recent recommendation from Tripadviser.com. The motel is the closest accomendation to the Herkimer and Ace of Diamond Mines. You are about 5 miles from the mines and close to many restaurants and fast food joint. The rooms are older but clean. For $39.95 you more than average rooms. We have one of the two...

I stayed in the motel over spring break. It was very fun and very well maintained. Under the new ownership, so many things are being attended to. In a bit, it will really become more than just a motel... they're working so hard, the new owners that is. The people were very friendly and made you feel at home. It's...

This motel is the worst motel I've ever stayed at!! The room was dirty, and it was infested with bugs! The bathroom was so dirty, mildewed, and smelled so terrible that I couldnt even use it! No matter how desperate I am for a room when I travel to Herkimer, I will never stay at this motel ever again!!!!
