The view from the motel is gorgeous but finding the drive up to the motel was a bit of a puzzle. Check in was an adventure as there was just an envelope with our information taped on the door of the main house. Our room and bathroom were very clean. The bed was comfortable BUT the walls are paper thin....

Hi, Thank you for the comments about how clean our rooms are. That is super important to us. I'm also glad you liked the view. To get that view, we do have to be up a bit, so yes, the driveway does take you "up." This was my husband's grandmother's motel. We bought it in 2012 and have been saving...

The room had a funky smell. So strong I could smell it from outside. I thought it was mild or mildew. The owner said it was cleaning products. Regardless, we couldn't stay. A got half our money back and went to a Holiday Inn Express and slept well in a modern room for less money. We won't do a mom...

If your looking for a clean, affordable, no frills room this is your place. We stayed here for the weekend mainly because it was located as a pickup location for frisky wine tours. We wished it was just a little closer to town so we could have walked but the views in the morning overlooking seneca lake sure are beautiful....

The view from the motel is gorgeous. I wouldn't say the interior rooms are gorgeous but the room is very spacious with a small refrigerator. The bathroom is also very spacious. Room and bathroom were very clean. Walls are thin so you need to be mindful of loud TVs and voices carrying into your neighbor's room. We would stay here...
