I booked this hotel on a whim after deciding to take a road trip from New Jersey up to the New York State Fair to see a concert. The price was excellent, considering the hotel's proximity to the fairgrounds. It's walkable, but they also offer a free shuttle that leaves at regular intervals. The outside is a bit nondescript; there's a sign on the building for the attached steakhouse but not for the hotel itself, which was a little confusing at first. Parking is free, which is a nice perk. The lobby was clean, and the carpet appeared to have been redone recently. I originally booked a room with a king bed, as I was told that was all that was left. When we got to our room, the door was propped open, which was strange, and the room reeked of smoke. We immediately went back down to the desk. There was nobody there, so we waited for about five minutes, explained the problem and were immediately switched to a different room, which ended up being better for us because it had two beds instead of one. The room was clean and comfortable with everything we needed for our one-night stay. No complaints there. We didn't try the free breakfast, but there is one included, which adds value. Overall, I'd recommend this place if you're looking for something middle of the road that's not too expensive and that's close to the fairgrounds. less
