If you want a smoking room...

This place smelled of smoke and looked like something right out of a bad horror movie. It is just a bed, shower, window AC unit, and TV, that's it. No Ice, No Fridge, No Microwave, No Pool (or other fitness). They did have free WIFI, but don't forget to ask for the password when you check in.

Decent value

Don't expect too much here - but I didn't see any of the roaches or bedbugs that some of the other reviewers describe. I was satisfied with my experience here - the room was clean enough, shower water pressure was good, functonal WiFi, and the room was cleaned daily. Decent value for $40-$50 per night, since the other cheap options like Super 8 are all at least $25 per night more. If you're on a budget, the Passport Inn Utica was OK.

Passport to funk

Until the management learns where to buy Clorox, better to sleep in your car. Anyone with five bucks can eradicate mold from a shower, no problem. Apparently that's too expensive for The Passport. These folks prefer a science project in every bath. Draw your own conclusions about the rest.

Unwelcome visitors on our bed

I've stayed in dozens of budget motels in the past. Dirty floors, beat-up furniture, unbreathable tobacco-stenched air, rough towels, I can live with all that. No heat in the room when you arrive (when it's snowing outside), not so much, but it's still OK if the price is good. Now, roaches on your bed waking you up at 1am, that is unacceptable. And because there was no one in the office at that time, we couldn't even complain. We just left the place and looked for somewhere else to stay (which is a terrible experience at 1am when you have to get up at 6, but it was better than staying with the roaches). For an extra 10 bucks (not even that if you have AAA), stay somewhere else. The shower was good, though.

Not A Good Choice

when we got to our room and turned on the lights, all we seen was cockroaches on the dresser and the walls. We immediately went to the office where the desk clerk was, he did offer us another room but we declined and left..Beware as this is a roach motel..
