Just what you would expect...

Would recommend Mon, Sep 22, 2014
The motel was exactly what one would expect from a two-star facility. It was quite well equipped with a mini-fridge, microwave, iron and ironing board. The coffee maker didn't work so it didn't matter that there was no cup to make coffee...;). The value was good for the price.

check in issue

Would not recommend Mon, Jun 30, 2014
Upon check in I was asked for a photo ID. My drivers license was photocopied. ( this is absolutely the first time I have ever had that done). Additionally, the room provided was the one of two that faced the highway. I asked for a different room which the clerk denied having any until I basically left. He followed to my car and finally offer a different room (after 10 minutes of discussion). I prepaid for the room but left anyway.

Smelly... and not so hygenic, yuk.

Would not recommend Thu, Oct 21, 2010
The place looked okay, perhaps cute from outside. The pinkish brick facade of the motel kind of gave it a cozy look... but as soon as i walked in from check-in to the room there were indian cultural smell to it. very strong. I couldn't breathe inside the room, got out and got myself some drinks to numb my senses... in the morning taking a shower, i've noticed that there were long curly woman's hair that was still stuck on to the shower wall. it was not good, go to one of the franchised motels. would never come back here again...

There's really nothing around this town. Starbucks was half mile away

Basic, clean, quiet motel

Would recommend Sun, Jan 17, 2010
I was in conferences M-F, 9-5 and this motel was just what I needed. Basic amenities, microwave, frig, hair dryer, clean, comfortable. It was no frills but that's what I expected and it was really more of a 4.5 overall. Not for those looking to be pampered!

Dining

More amenities to the right out of motel parking lot. Be prepared to really walk a distance on main highway or get in your car and drive.

Towpath Motel

Would recommend Tue, Dec 8, 2009
This is a perfectly acceptable alternative to chain hotels. The room was small, but clean, however there was a distinct antiseptic odor. "Continental breakfast" consisted of Cheerios, Raisin Bran, and Fruit Loops, and tiny packaged muffins, plus coffee and Sunny D. All accessed by a tiny space with room for one person, and we had to go back to our room to eat.

Dining

We drove around the city of Rochester for a long time looking for a place to eat.

convenient and inexpensive; good value

Would recommend Fri, Oct 23, 2009
[...] decided to try, since location was conveniently close to highway. It is a great value: quite inexpensive, and you get the basics: clean comfortable bed, free wireless internet, and clean (though not spotless) bathroom. Management is very friendly.
