Attended a wedding at the Inn. It was a beautiful setting for a wedding and we were lucky to have perfect August weather. The wedding setting was lovely but the rooms were in need of updating. Old bathrooms and old furnishings. Nothing terrible but the partially used toiletries in the bathroom made me squeamish. Would not stay here again. Three... More

This is the 3rd Canandaigua Hotel we've stayed at, and it tops our list. It was a bit higher priced, and no breakfast included, but the location, comfort of the rooms and nightlife made up for that. We found the room quiet, clean and comfortable. The Sand Bar and Lounge were fun places for an evening cocktail with a view.

The hotel is due for an update but still clean and relatively comfortable..The people were friendly and helpful..We ate breakfast there and found it to be ok..It was located right on the lake on some very expensive real estate so the price was reasonable..In door pool and hot tub were nice.

This was one of the worst hotels I've experienced in a long time. Overall it was like staying at some cheap hotel chain like La Quinta or Quality in, but older and way more expensive. Negatives included ceilings so low I hit my head on a fire alarm in the hallway, deteriorated furniture, broken fixtures (lamps, ironing board, etc), dirty... More

We stayed from 8/11/14-8/14/14. I was extremely disappointed with The Inn on the Lake. The rooms were adequate, but nothing special. We reserved a suite with two queen beds and a fold-out sofa specifically for three adults and two children. No bedding was provided for the sofa, and the two beds each only had two pillows. Upon entry, the room... More

The King lakefront suite offers both an excellent view from the balcony as well as a very comfortable place for relaxing with a small living room and kitchen. The bed and bath are great and the staff attentive. Easy walking to many eateries and the culinary institute make this a great place to enjoy a few days or longer in... More

This hotel offers a beautiful restaurant, bar, as well as The SanBar, an outside bar and restaurant located on the waterfront. Boater friendly,... More

We had an overnight scheduled for Inn on the Lake and paid "extra" for a lake view room. The room was a king with a great view of the pool which was about 4 feet from the patio door. The room was quite small and I noticed mold on the ceiling in the shower. Not good. The food at the... More

My husband and I found the Inn on the Lake last year and went for the weekend. I fell in love with it. A few weeks ago we went back and I didn't want to leave! The hotel staff are so nice and accomodating. The rooms are average nothing spectacular. To just walk out of your room and outside and... More

We had been driving around the Finger Lakes area for the day just reliving old memories. It was late afternoon and hadn't decided where we were going to stay, we ended up getting off the highway and was heading for Canandaigua, we wanted a place with rooms, dining room etc. all under one roof. We had stayed once before at... More
