My husband and I were on our way to New York City from Canada on Monday, August 7, 2017 and weren’t sure where to stay. We pulled into Knowlton Centre and a lovely lady by the name of Judy was working behind the counter. Let me tell ya, she knows her job!! She got us where we wanted to be with perfect driving instructions and some great advice about visiting New York City. You are very lucky to have her as an employee!
