Took the family here and got your typical 2 queen bed room for a good price considering it was high season. Room was a little tight for 4 and nothing special looks wise, but the property is beautiful, has a nice view of the lake, and is located near town and activities. Don't think there are many options for this... More

The pool was very clean, but could use more lawn chairs for sunbather. Good party-happy hour spot. Great location within walking distand to town, which is very... More

Early last August we ended up coming and spending couple of days at the Canandaigua Inn on The Lake. We've seen weddings be held here and in fact two year's ago when my cousin ended up getting married, we had both his wedding and reception here at the place.

We were only here one night, but it was a great night sleep. The hotel is a bit dated, but very clean and the bedding is all new. The location is beautiful, right on the lake! My husband found a jogging path towards the right side of the hotel, by the lake. The pools, exercise room, and bar were all... More

We came for a wedding and loved this space. The room, a lakefront double, was well done although the closet needs a light. Nice patio, microwave, fridge and safe. The restaurant food was average. A downside is it hosts lots of weddings which go until 11:00 and can get loud if you want to get to bed early.

Dear Guest- Thank you for the nice review. We are very happy to hear you enjoyed the wedding and lakefront room. I will pass along your idea to our engineering staff and see if we can make the closet light happen. Hope to see you again! More

The reason for my visit was a graduation in Geneva. The hotel was conveniently located and a great place to stay. It was quiet, clean, and very comfortable. The staff does such an amazing job that I you could not tell there was other big events going on. After I checked in, I asked to move to a bigger room,... More
