Just what I was looking for...

Pros: Location, price, comfort, cleanliness, in whichever order.
Cons: Improving, while still maintaining, an older motel, and keeping your head above water must be challenging. They seem to doing just that.
Location: Close to Clarkson U and SUNY Potsdam, about 3 miles.
The room was comfortable and very clean. The price was right. The place may be old but the room was nicely appointed with a homier feel. The owners seem like really nice people too.
