Stayed here for one night. Business trip traveling solo so my needs are simple, clean room with good WiFi. This place was formally the Scottish Inn and I had stayed here in the past. Same owners who keep the place up nicely. It is a little dated and worn but a good value. Good cable selection but an older “big”...

For the price I expected Captain Obvious to be waiting to tell me that this was a creepy room! Actually not. Now the room is small, especially with a queen bed. You could hear walking from the room upstairs You also were wishing there was a quieter hallway. The positives were many. Clean, new carpet, new and updated bathroom, flat...

Car broke down and had to pull into this place. Got as out of the way as I much as I could in parking lot. Called for help. After 45 minutes waiting, my wife was freezing due to 30 degree temps. Went in to ask if we could sit in entry, out of the way where we could stay warm...

I ended up at this hotel as a last-minute solution because my Priceline reservation with another hotel had assigned me a Smoking room and I could not get that hotel to switch it. This Scottish Inn hotel has absolutely no frills but it does deliver what I needed - a clean room for a couple of nights. The room is...

We've stayed here twice, both times when the Red Roof Inn across the street was full. This place is not bad. The owners are pleasant and gave us no trouble when my wife wanted an extra towel. The bed was comfortable and the water pressure in the shower was excellent. It's an inexpensive place, but it's a very good inexpensive...

Had made reservations to stay 1 night and after seeing the lobby, asked to see rooms. King room was dingy, dank and disgusting. Queen room was a little better but we opted not to stay there. Manager wanted to charge for 2 rooms for 2 nights because we didn't cancel 2 days in advance. I had made reservation just about...

We stayed at the Scottish Inn in Utica because we booked fairly last minute and it was the least expensive I could find. I was fairly worried since some of the other reviews had a fair mixture of good and bad. I can say my bed was very comfortable and the room and bathroom was clean. This is an older...
