Not a family hotel; questionable activities which resulted in law enforcement response. Rooms were outdated, smelled, stains on towels, no microwave in room as stated, ice machine and one of the 2 elevators didn't work the entire weekend. I am surprised Travelocity endorses this hotel. Very disappointed

Close to fort drum.

Hotel had very few amenities. our particular room had a broken toilet and shower. Felt they should have caught this when cleaning. Also found a pair of someone else's shorts on the window seat. Made me question the cleanliness. But it served its purpose.

Nice comfortable place to stay

Pros: The comfortable bed
Location: The Thousand Island Winery and the Cedar Point State Park were great places to visit
My stay here was pleasant. The staff were all friendly and easy to talk with. We had no problems. The room was large and the beds were comfortable. I think the pillows may have been the best I've ever had in any motel across the country.

Wonderful stay.

Pros: Location. was great. It was a holiday weekend.
Cons: The breakfast was not to our liking. Just juice,coffee, cereal and bagels. No toast .
Location: Plenty of shopping. Gas station near by. Mcdonalds in the parking lot. Not far from Alex bay, and many family attractions.
Our room was just great! We were there for 3 nights. Staff was really nice. Since we visit the area often we will be staying here again.

One word, "Yuck"

Pros: The staff.
Cons: Overall it!
I thought with the Wyndam name behind this brand it would be a decent place to stay. I was VERY wrong! The overall feel of this location was one of being run down. The overall impression made me feel gritty/dirty. This place is in need of a renovation. Hallways are dark. Paint/wallpaper is peeling. Bathrooms are unventilated and show signs of moisture. Gold painted/textured walls were dirty. First room I went to didnt look like it was even vacummed. Asked for second room. The bath tubs of both first and second room had signs of permanent dirt rings and stains. I didnt want to stand in the shower barefoot so I used the floor mat in the shower floor and a towel on bathroom floor. Pulled the sheets back and the white sheets were - well not white. Seemed like the sheets have had the same wear and tear as the motel. Breakfast - nope: Instant coffee, cheap plastic wrapped muffins, cereal, and slimmy hard boiled eggs. Look elsewhere for a comfortable place to stay. With all that said, the people that work there were nice and attempted to be accomodating.

Nice quiet hotel

Pros: clean and affordable, had a refrigerator and a microwave, and a large screen TV
Cons: Carpets were a little worn, and the choices for the continental breakfast were a little scant
Location: Great location, away from the city so you don't have to deal with traffic, but close enough to be there in minutes. Also minutes away from Fort Drum
Hotel was very clean, staff was friendly, and location is convenient. There is a Walmart on the same street McDonalds next door, if more is needed Watertown is 4 miles away. I've stayed in many places around the Watertown area, you won't find better for that price. It's not upscale, but if you want a clean, comfortable room, at an affordable price this place is not bad.

This hotel does not worth what they charge

They do not provide bottled water. I was told I can go and buy it from a vending machine, for $2.00 per bottle. Water during shower was switching from warm to cold randomly. There is no coffee maker in the room. You can get coffee at the reception area, however, if you like brown water.

A comfortable place to stay

Pros: The hotel was comfortable and clean.
Cons: The hair dryer didn't work in our room.
Location: We went to Maggie's on the River which was a great place to eat. Very casual, a lot of beverage choices. Many other restaurants within 10 minutes.
The hotel was clean and comfortable and the staff was incredibly nice. There were a lot of good choices for the free breakfast. The hotel seems older, but pricing is just right.

Just OK

Pros: Location
Cons: Better breakfast offerings and the rooms need to be aired out - Please consider cleaning the carpets more often
Location: Fort Drum
The room was just ok - there is a odd smell (musty) in the hallway, the breakfast was just ok - basic stuff, the room needed to be aired - again musty smell. There are other motels near by that are nicer, but this one was the least expensive
