I needed a motel, busy weekend in the Hornell, Alfred, Almond area of New York State.
Through a friend a was made aware of the Sunshine Motel. The price seemed too good to be giving me a decent place to stay, and being a former inn keeper myself at age 65 I decided to call and "interrogate" the person who answered the phone. This person turned out to be a sweetheart of a young lady and was not offended by any question I asked her. I decided to book a room and give this place a chance and I am glad I did. No frills - that's okay, my house has no frills. As I pulled into the parking area I noticed how pleasant and clean the grounds were. Checking in I met Ken who gave me easy instructions to my evening destination which was Alfred Tech for a banquet. It couldn't get any easier. Gas station, a few yards from the motel. Who doesn't love Dollar General or Family Dollar? Right around the corner...got a few things there I forgot to bring. I had to call the office because I couldn't figure out how to turn on th air conditioner and with patience Ken filled me in. The bed was clean and beyond comfortable...and this body has a hard time finding a comfortable bed. I got one of the best night's sleep I have had in a long time. If you are looking for posh, glitz and lots of shine - don't even consider this place. If you are looking for a comfortable and friendly place to sleep - then go for it. I will definitely return and I have already passed out few of their business cards to folks I know will need to be in that area at some point.
