Smack in the middle of Main Street. Walking distance to a variety of businesses.
From the moment I entered the hotel I smelled stale air. I thought well it may just be in the lobby. Boy, I was sadly mistaken. I entered my room, I smelled a combination of stale air and stale/moldy water. Buy a scented mistifier and place them EVERYWHERE. Keep the air circulating AT ALL TIMES.
My girls wanted to go to the pool and the smell of chlorine gave me an instant headache. The surrounding area had mold in the crack. The kind of mold that you attempt to clean, but is so deeply embedded that only remodeling will eradicate it.
I wanted to find another hotel, but I was only staying a day and didn’t want to lose my money.
The hotel is situated in downtown Oneonta, which is convenient for anyone interested in this formerly charming small city.
The hotel staff is accommodating.
The real issues with the hotel is it’s overall condition. The hotel really needs corporate to invest in a remodel. Lamps don’t function, the carpet is threadbare, the shower barely works and is growing mold. The towels are thin and worn and the room has an overall musty smell.
