We visited the Akwesasne Casino in Hogansburg New York the other day. Also we decided to stay over night at the Comfort Inn across from the casino. We have stayed there before and had a lot of great things to say about it. We wanted to provide an update regarding the hotel since they are in the middle of making many changes at the hotel. For a more complete review you can click here.
We really like this hotel for a number of reasons. It is always very clean, they provide WiFi and also the breakfast is always very good. this time however we found the hotel under construction. They have added another wing onto the hotel to add more rooms and at the same time they are updating the lobby, the breakfast area and also replacing the wall paper on all of the halls.
In the end this will make this hotel even more comfortable to stay at and they will have more rooms. We stayed at the comfort inn on a Thursday night and had no problem getting a reservation late in the day. We decided to stay overnight only as a last minute decision. On the weekend, the hotel is sold out and so the extra rooms will be welcome.
The construction was only a minor inconvenience to us, however we would have appreciated it the reservation clerk had warned us ahead of time to manage our expectations. Often they will have a letter in each room informing guests of the construction and what is being done. Unfortunately there was none of this. we spoke to the manager about this and I think will take some of these suggestions and implement them.
The Hogansburg Comfort Inn is a great place to stay because of its proximity to the Akwesasne Mohawk casino. For more information about the casino, click here. When you check in always ask for a AAA discount or seniors discount. This will save you approximately $5 to $10 dollars each night so it is definitely worth it. The other great advantage is that you do not have to pay any federal or state taxes which can save another ten to fifteen dollars.
Once again, except for the construction, we were very happy with our stay at the Comfort Inn. Apparently the construction is to be finished by mid March much to the gratification of the manager. He is very frustrated with the slowness of the progress. They are pushing them pretty hard to finish the job on time.
