I realize there's a NYC board, but thought folks in the greater Burlington area might have more info on this, or perhaps Plattsburgh residents might scan this board.
I've led many bicycle tours through Plattsburgh and we've always stayed at the Super 8 on Rt. 9 at Moffitt Road because I didn't want to subject the riders to the traffic nightmare of the I-87/NY 3 interchange and Gus's (adequate) is across the street for breakfast. However, it looks like the quality (of the motel) has seriously declined and I'm considering more contemporary lodging in town or along the strip.
What I'm wondering is - what, if anything, is available for breakfast along the western end of 3, west of the interstate, as we may be at the Hampton Inn or Microtel to avoid the worst of the strip east of the interstate? These folks need serious fuel, not a hotel continental breakfast. Sometimes we went to the Cumberland Cafe, but that's been gone for years. Other lodging / breakfast ideas welcome - downtown/SUNY areas perhaps? For dinner, we plan to hit Iris's one night and Anthony's Bistro the other, as we've had good experiences with both in the past.
