I purchased a 'superior' room at this motel, based on the Priceline 2-star rating. Based on what I have seen in other motel rooms with Priceline 2-star ratings, this was not a 2-star. Here are some of the items we noticed, from our stay in either Room 2 or 3 (sorry, I cannot remember which): -- The priceline site notes 'breakfast buffet,' but that is misleading because there is no breakfast room/nook at all! The person on duty said that buffets aren't offered this time of year (there was a small restaurant across the street, but it was closed for the season). -- The Priceline site notes 'views of the bay of fundy,' which is technically correct because you can actually see a small part of the bay over the treeline (it was about five miles away), if you stand in the street next to the motel. -- One of the floor lamps fell apart when we moved it slightly -- The toilet base was supported on wood planks (but, the toilet actually worked fine, but the fear was that bugs could crawl out) -- Pipes below exposed sink were corroded and rusty -- Toilet tissue holder wouldn't turn to roll platter (a used toilet paper roll was placed on top) -- The bath towels and washcloths were thread bare -- There was a used/soiled bath towel, from a previous guest, hanging on the back of the bathroom door -- No smoke detector (there was a spot on the ceiling where it appears one might have existed, at one time) -- The room's general run-down appearance suggests the need for repairs/improvements that have been neglected over a long period of time -- I suppose one could say the Priceline site was right with '24 hour reception,' but when we left at 8:00a we went to the motel office to return our key, and had to ring a bell: after a few minutes a lady in pajamas came to the door, to accept our key. Bottom line thexxxx price for the 'superior' room was aboutxxx more than this room was 'worth' for an overnight stay. I have no idea what the other rooms looked like.Pros: The room was generally clean, the refrigerator, microwave, toilet, shower and TV all worked fine. The evening attendant was courteous.Cons: The description for this hotel that was on the Priceline web site was deceptive, or at least inaccurate: see my comments below. This was not a Priceline 2-star hotel: maybe a 1-star rating is okay, but even that is pushing things a bit far.
