3/5 Okay

Traveled with family
Liked: Cleanliness
Right next to the highway. You can hear all the conversation from next door room. The upstair steps could be heard as well. All in all , I think the price was too high for the hotel.
Stayed 1 night in May 2021

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
The room was clean and comfortable enough with free Wifi and a mini fridge. A mini microwave would have been nice. Unfortunately, the Van Winkle restaurant next door was closed until Feb. 17th-- no other places close by to eat. Parking was crowded because the lot area wasn't plowed out very well and there were icy spots. Overall it's fine for a night or two but not many things to do/see close by.

2/5 Poor

Traveled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness
The bathroom was clean while the bedroom still had the stains on the furniture of previous people. I could see where they left their coffee/soda mugs on the table etc. when we got in the room the heater was off and there were 30F. It took over 5 hours to get to 68F. Beside this, the staff was ok with quick check in/out

3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service
The Motel is just next to a brew-pub and 10 mi away from Catskill town which is great. The structure is old and the rooms are not soundproof and you can hear everything from your neighbors. If you stay on the first floor you will hear every step from the people on top of you. So, Unless you are a heavy sleeper, bring ear plugs. The bed sheets had stains however the restroom was clean. I would not recommend the place if you have high expectations, however if you are the type of person that is just looking for a bed and a hot shower after a long hike/ski trip the place is perfectly fine.
