We found nothing gross in the room. The hallway carpets are another story. Really horrible. There wasn't anyone in the locked office when we arrived so we had to call the number on the front door. There's a kitchen, but no utensils, pots, pans or dishes. If you want to make a meal you'd need to bring a lot of... More

It's a dorm room, first and foremost. It was dirty, shower had wet washcloth in it (EEEWWW), also someones notebook was still there from class. We had no shampoo or soap. Our friends on the next floor had shampoo but no pillow cases. Wondering where the disconnect is with housekeeping. No coffee or food. Not hotel like at all. The... More

Driving thru the finger lakes on vaca and booked a room. Did not know it was a college dorm ( which usually are a good buy). This, however, was the pits. First room we were given had not been cleaned. Old urine in toilet with moldy ring around it. No pillows, no shower curtain. Second room had dead flies on... More

Didnt even give us the room promised.... More

My husband and I booked a night here on 7/4/15 for a concert we were attending at CMAC. We checked in at 7pm and checked out by 11pm. Too many problems to list some including cleanliness and a party next door to our room (which included a man exposing himself to me while urinating in the sink.) When I asked... More

My family had a great time in Canandaigua. We stayed at the Campus Gate Lodge. We got good rest and even a kitchen for our meals. The "Gate" keepers all were very friendly and made sure we had all we needed. Thank you so much for making our trip wonderful.

Okay, yes, it is a College dorm...but our room was clean and exactly what was pictured when we made our reservation. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. When we returned from dinner they assisted us in parking our car as they also allowed paid CMAC parking here also, but we were given preferential treatment. We walked to... More

We stayed one night and attended a concert at CMAC at the end of May. The location was excellent (within walking distance). The staff provided us with a complimentary parking pass for the concert. CMAC allows you to tailgate. We were told not to leave our vehicles at the concert over night (I did leave the vehicle and thankfully it... More

The Campus Gate is right at the entrance to Keuka College and is very obviously designed as college dormitory efficiency apartments. Rooms can be rented nightly or by the semester. Every room has one or more beds, a matching number of desks and chairs, minimal but acceptable lighting, unless you like to read in bed, and a fully equipped kitchen... More

You are right to say that we are across from a college and that would be Finger Lakes Community College. When the students move out in May we turn our establishment into a "hotel". We accommodate a lot of concert attendees at CMAC (which is right next to FLCC) and it there happened to be one that weekend, Luke Bryan.... More

The room we reserved and paid for was NOT what it was supposed to be!!! We paid for a two bedroom sweet with brand new furniture, and got a two bed frat room!!!! Doesn't even matter how close it is to the CMAC center, I would have been better off sleeping in my car!

We know of only one person that said they booked a suite and was given a double (Priceline's error), however we did accommate them with a free standard room for the other traveler. More
