Traveled with family
When we arrived we were informed they were overbooked and we had no room. I had called earlier that morning to see if we could check in early and the girl I spoke with never said we didn’t have a room available. I had booked the room weeks in advance.We had reserved a cabin for our family. They wanted to relocate us to another property of their’s down the road, but we’ve stayed there before and were not at all interested in staying there again. Needless to say, I was not impressed and had a very hard time finding a place to stay, most hotel/motel were booked full.

The cabin 134 is absolutly disgusting. The sheets and mattresses are insufficient and full of cigarette burns. The sofa is extremely dirty on the top and inside (there is even a complete cigarette under the cushions). The bathroom sink is full of objects (razor protection and the like), the shower curtain is torn. There were no tissues, towels or soap. The kitchen section is disgusting and dirty. We did not dare to drink tap water. We bitterly regret our choice, it was the cheapest in the area and it was really overpaid for what we got.

We booked a room to break up the trip between Canada and Utica. Our tour bus arrived back in Montreal much later than anticipated, and my cell provider had no towers in the area, so I could not call to inform the motel. We arrived at 10:30, and the office was closed. We ended up sleeping in our car in a rest area as all other hotels/motels were fully booked.
