After four nights in NYC it was a relief to come to Canandaigua and especially The Inn on the Lake. The hotel has a perfect location and the rooms are fine, the beds comfortable and the outside area splendid! The restaurant offers a good and large menu and winecard, and the food was good.

We stayed for one night during a drive from Chicago to Boston. The hotel was great for our family of 5 - pretty views of the lake, a nice little pool, fun restaurant (average food) on the lake and great fun watching the boats. The room was clean and spacious enough for a roll away cot for one of the... More

If you are looking for a loud crowd, this is for you. A wedding took place close to our patio (I felt like a guest) and the reception under the tent had music that I could hear from my room - also close - until 11 pm. The shore bar must have played host to more than 500 people who... More

On our Roadtrip throughout The Northeast of USA we decided to relax at one of the finger lakes for a couple of days in the midst of visiting all the big cities and sites. The hotel was a good choice in our view. It is right on the lake. We arrived on a sunny Sunday when the lake was packed... More

I guess it matters what your priorities are. We rate clean (which includes bug free) as our TOP choice. THIS place was very, very clean. Walking by a room the second morning, I saw the 'mature' cleaning staff actually vacuuming off the skirt around the mattress! Last year we stayed at a Finger Lakes resort in which the staff was...

We stayed in Room 183 and was very satisfied with everything this hotel has to offer. The room is a suite with view of the lagoon. Everything was clean and the bed and pillows are very comfortable. Since we brought our dog, this room is close to an exit for easy in/out for the dog. The staff is very friendly.... More

We liked the idea of a room overlooking one of the finger lakes. The inn on the Lake turned out to be just a big motel. Our room sort of looked out onto the lake. However, the band from the wedding and the bar was so load that might have as well have been in the room. So, we changed... More

We spent two nights in this wonderful Inn with great accommodations. Room was spacious, clean with good views. This was a last minute reservation so we were lucky to get one of the last rooms. We ate dinner in the restaurant / food was good as was the service. Outside music, great atmosphere, fun location for young couples. Would definitely... More

Comfortable room, clean and well-appointed. The best features of the hotel are the lakeside location with lots of Adirondack chairs where you can sit and enjoy the view, the boats and just unwind. Good restaurant and a lakefront bar with good food if you want more casual dining. Unlike some other reviewers, I found the staff courteous and helpful. Things... More
