A great find!

Posted Feb 24, 2017 on Hotels
Check in was friendly and felt like I was coming home. Room was comfortable and clean. Next morning we were surprised to see that the snow had been cleaned off our vehicle - a nice surprise! :) Great price for a cute little gem. Will definitely repeat our stay here when in the area.

You deserve to not have to shovel snow off your car. It is our honor to cater to great clients like you. Spring is coming.

I booked this hotel at the last minute, and i knew nothing about this place. It is owned and operated by a couple, they were very helpful and very friendly, rooms were very clean, you get a full pot of coffee with real cream, microwave and fridge in the room. We received 1 inch of snow that night, when I was checking out, the owner had already cleared the snow off my truck. The price is very good for the service we received, if you are looking for a hotel that has good service, clean rooms, and affordable, i recommend this hotel

Thank you so much for the great review. I am so happy we contacted a local used car dealer to get these great car squeegee. Our goal this year is going to be some sort of plow so we can stop shoveling the parking lot. Thank you for helping us with our cause.

Good alternative to the old chain hotels in town

Posted Nov 14, 2016 on Orbitz
Location: 20 minutes from SUNY Potsdam and Clarkson
Blue Spruce is a good alternative to the chain hotels in town. We found this motel through Orbitz when looking for a place to stay while visiting SUNY Potsdam. While nothing fancy, the room was large and well kept. The owner was very nice and accommodating.

Home away from home

Posted Aug 31, 2016 on Hotels
The owners were very sociable. It was as if we had known each other and was catching up with loss time. The room in which we stayed was designed in the way you would design your own room at home with comfort.

A disappointing, expensive stay

Posted Aug 16, 2016 on Hotels
On a day that was oppressively humid and warm, there was no air conditioning that was able to be regulated. Room was expensive for value, though clean, and upon leaving early under these conditions, no refund nor credit for a future stay could be negotiated. This room was reserved for my son and guest while visiting me. The donuts they bought, however, were quite good.

Clean, comfy, and kitchy!

Posted Aug 8, 2016 on Hotels
It doesn't have the same polished look or feel of a chain hotel/motel, but I had a better night's sleep here than I have at most Hilton or Marriott properties! My room was clean and super quiet, the mattress was comfortable, and I really appreciated the little details that made my stay that much better (a working (dusted!) ceiling fan, full-size coffee maker with good coffee, nice bath linens, etc.). The main office was also a gift shop with handmade items like t-shirt quilts and messenger bags made from old jeans. It was also the first place I've stayed in as an adult that gave me an actual key to my room - crazy! Unfortunately, the wifi was slow and unreliable even though I was close to the main office, and the cable didn't seem to work at all. I didn't realize these issues until the main office was closed, and I left before I could alert the staff in the morning. However - the internet is also terrible at my worksite in town, so I think it has more to do with the service provider. Overall, awesome motel - I will absolutely stay here again!

Margaret, We let our housekeeper know of the fantastic impression she gave you. She takes pride in her job and believes in the "Mama Bear Approved" Mission. This coming Saturday I have my fingers crossed....we may be at the finish line with WI-FI, Cable properly functioning has been added to our housekeeping check list. We look forward to seeing you again and can't wait for you to enjoy the improvements.

Very nice family run motel.

Posted Jul 30, 2016 on Hotels
Great family run motel located in Massena.Spotlessly clean, spacious rooms, good water pressure, 12 cup coffee maker in the room, refrigerator, microwave, ironing board and iron. Quiet surroundings and pretty lawn with flowers and birdfeeders feeders. We would definitely stay here again.It beats the generic hotel/motel chains.

Great place to stay

Posted Jul 12, 2016
We enjoyed our stay at Blue Spruce and would stay there again. The room size was good, the bed was comfortable and the shower was very good with plenty of hot water. They supplied us with everything we needed promptly. The owners, Mike and Gina, are down to earth people and very hospitable.

The room was really big. The room could use more light. There was little to no natural light and only two small lamps. The beds were very hard too. However, it was quiet and there was space outside to enjoy the great weather.
