My friend and I have been coming to the Skaneateles area for many years in August. We like to stay at independently owned smaller motels. We particularily like the "hallmark" of plastic chairs placed outside each room for evening sitting (even if there is no view). The Colonial (as this was known under the previous owners) has been our choice... More

We were in town for a family reunion and really enjoyed staying at the Inn on 20. This motel is clean, quiet and reasonably priced. We never got the time to use the pool but it looked nice. The lawns and landscape were very appealing.

The new owners are so attentive. In fact, Sue was just walking by our room when I discovered that I needed help zipping my dress, and she was nice enough to pop right in and assist. She also offered to run down to the store when they did not have the specific coffee I was hoping for -- totally unnecessary... More

I found Skaneateles Inn on 20 by blundering around on the internet. It was previously Colonial Motel, but the new owners took over on May 28. They are working diligently to make this a first class place. The first attempts have been good. The room was freshly painted, clean and airy. Even though this is an older place, there was... More

Spotlessly clean room, comfortable bed, comfortable room. The new owners are very nice. They've painted the place and are updating the rooms, but have continued the tradition of super clean and very friendly. The day we were there it was hot and the owner had complimentary iced tea in the lobby, as well as coffee and chocolates. :) They have... More

Recently taken over And newly painted. We stayed here for one night on our way through town. Queen beds. Comfy. Clean. TV worked. Air on worked albeit noisy. No real complaints. Decent price for the area. Good luck to new owners.

Thank you for your comments and for staying with us. We have owned the motel now for 7 weeks. Every day we strive to make it better. We hope you liked our new blue color with black shutters. Coming soon are clock radios in every room. We will be replacing all the TV's over time with new flat screens. Thank... More
