I stayed at the A1 Economy Inn for a couple of nights in January 2012 while visiting the ski resorts of Seven Springs and Heavenly Valley.
This place is definitely different from the homogeneous hotel chains. Look at the photos and you will get an idea of what I mean. It appears to have been an old motel that has been maintained over the years. As one example: you will get an actual metal key to your room, not a credit card that you swipe. This isn't a bad thing -- just different.
It was definitely neat and clean. The service was excellent. The person I called to make my reservation was also at the front desk, and was very helpful. It is right off the turnpike, which is convenient. There are a few local restaurants close by, including a Starbucks and a Ruby Tuesday. Free internet and parking. There is a free breakfast, which was better than nothing, but nothing special.
For the price, the A1 Inn can't be beat. It is about half the price of the local chains in Somerset.
