Tried to cancel the stay because I had a car accident on my way there (called the hotel). Two minutes later, they charged my credit card. Shame on them!

Brookside was a good property because we were in late and out early. It's an older building, and somewhat rundown. The tv remote was missing and they couldn't furnish another so no tv. Parking is there for 1 car per room, but odd. Was comfortable for our short stay

This place is disgusting!Room One Two One was disgusting! Smelled like old musty basement, the shower curtain smelled like mold and human piss, bed was terrible, had three different places on 3 different walls with what presume were dead bugs! I had booked for 3 nights they put me in the wrong room, when I went to sort it out they did nothing to make it right, I booked a king single room they put me in a Queen double room! Terrible service and communication with the foreigner that smelled so strongly of B.O. I could hardly stand to be in his little office! I ended up getting a room elsewhere, had to eat the other 2 nights cause between the Hotel and Expedia they wouldn’t give me my money! So I will no longer use Expedia either! Bogus!

Poorly maintained and outdated. Breakfast served was disgusting. The property has promise but owners need to do some work. Might i suggest theme rooms into a cabin feel. Update beds as current beds noisy with the metal frame. Clean ac filters. Defrost fridge. One room had two types of flooring. Seriously needs improvement.

This was a quiet place to stay and the sheets were clean. Our room was filthy, though. The carpet was horribly stained. The towels smelled sour and weren't bleached, the blankets weren't clean. The on/off button on the lamp was missing, as were coffee cups and regular coffee and Kleenex. The shower curtain was falling off the hooks. There were cobwebs with dead insects in the upper corners of the room and what appeared to be either dried vomit or feces on the baseboard of the bathroom. We won't stay here again.

No frills…. But worth the price.
This is definitely a no frills motel. But for the price and location, it was worth it. You can tell they are trying to spruce up the place. When we arrived they were still painting the outside so it looked a little shabby. But by the next day, it looked good and they added some patio furniture. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was small and shower was made for someone 5ft (which was perfect for me). We really had no complaints about this place. We only needed somewhere to rest our heads and shower. We were able to walk (about 10 minutes) to Main Street in keystone which was very nice after being on our motorcycle all day. The only thing I wish they had was charging docks for phones etc.
