We just returned from our annual "get-away", staying at our favorite motel, Otter Creek Inn. This has been our usual, and favorite place to stay for the past 10+ years. What attracts us to this motel is, first of all it's location, i.e. out of the bustle of the village, but within a short walk to many fine restaurants and... More

I spent a week here and was satisified. The service was good and the rooms were clean. The hotel is within walking distance of everything in town. Only issues were the mattresses were a bit too firm for my liking... softer is better. Also, the 1995 model TVs are a bit outdated. Flatscreens would be so much better. ;)

The room was very clean. The room was basic but had lots of space for 2 people. The owners were very friendly and helpful. It was easy to walk to the boat tour dock, restaurants and shops. If you want a clean, quiet, reasonably price room within walking distance to the "down town" then this is the place for you.

This place is like those charming pensions in Europe where the owner resided on the property. The inn is a 60's two story style motel tucked in a quiet side street on the waterfront with their own docks and a picnic area. The owners, Dennis and Debbie reside there and they are friendly and very accommodating. Pricing is reasonable for... More

After reading reviews we decided to give otter Creek a try. First off they claim they are on the water....better question what type of water....pretty much equates to a pond of water... Disappointing. Towels were thin and worn, pretty much a no frills barebones motel. The positives, room was clean, allowed early check-in, is located a couple block off the... More

Always a clean stay at the Otter Creek Inn. Rooms are clean, as well as the bathroom. Towels smell fresh. Dennis and Deb are nice and accommodating. Dock space is very good, and electric outlets abundant if needed for the boat. Enjoy!

If you just need a place to shower and change, The Otter Creek Inn suits the purpose, as this is a typical old motel. If you are one who enjoys a luxurious room, this is not the place for you. Our room was very clean and the management very friendly. Our room had a very small, old TV, whereas our... More

We had the greatest time ever in Alex Bay with Dennis and Debbie at Otter Creek Inn this year! This was tthe second time we stayed with them and we look forward to many more stays in the future. Relaxed on the deck looking at the water, service was excellent and friendly making you feel like part of the family.... More

Helpful friendly owners, nice clean room and good location for walking around town. It was very easy to find on a quiet residential street away from the traffic. The owner was very helpful with ideas of things to do and places to go.

I was trying very hard to come up with something positive to say about this place. The shower water was hot. The desk people were pleasant for the five minutes I was in the micro-sized "office". It was clean. The end. The truth is that anyplace else in the U. S., this room would be a 39.99 room. Last updated... More

We get unscheduled visits by professional AAA inspectors and get consistently high grades for a 2 Diamond motel in their worldwide rating system for our facility, beds, linens, furniture, etc. We don’t advertise ourselves as anything more or less. Our facility was built in 1989 and opened in 1990, so the comments about the 70’s are false. We live in... More
