It is a small, quaint place. There are about 6 rooms. If you're looking for a very clean place to lay your head, this is the place. It's not fancy but lots of us don't need fancy. There is a pool and the staff is friendly. It's convenient to Clayton, Alexandria Bay or Wellesley Island. I would highly recommend staying... More

Wonderful location near Clayton. Loved the river view. The cottage was a bit dated, but had everything we needed for the week. Watching the fireworks across the river was a great perc. Everything was clean, the cottage and the grounds. Everyone was very friendly.

In this area the majority of the lodging is in motel form ala 1960's. That being said I would rate this property as one the tops in the region. Room was very clean, reception very pleasant. Walls are very thin but that is to be expected in the older motels that are found in this area. I will stay again... More

We stayed a 1 bedroom cottage. The bed is a double so we brought an air bed with us. The cottage is clean but out dated. The bathroom window was rotting and held open with a board. The screened in front porch seemed to have some soft spots under the carpeting. The apartment sized refrigerator that is advertised is actually... More

We stayed at the motel for two nights this past August with our 2 children. The room was clean but very outdated. It's a throwback to the 70s. The old wooden windows were difficult to open and close. The beds were springy and not all that comfortable. My kids were disappointed in the game room (which doubles for the motel... More

My fishing partner and I stayed at Mil's motel on September 6th thru the 8th 2012. We arrived early and were greated by Alan the owner. The first thing we noticed is how well the appearance of the facility was, neat and clean. We then went to our motel room and We could tell that Alan and Lesley cared about... More

My husband and I sure lucked out when a cancellation came up for the 4th of July week on one of the upper cottages. Although this is not a fancy place, it had everything we needed for a week of fishing in the Thousand Islands region. You need to bring your own towels, but bedding and kitchen utensils are provided.... More

We have been vacationing as a family at Mils for over 15 years now and it is a wonderful family environment. The owners Al and Leslie are wonderful people and do a great job. These are clean comfortable cottages that fit the bill for us year in and year out. The rates are reasonable and the dockage and location on... More

We stayed here a few years ago and were very pleased. Stayed at the motel and was very pleased with the staff. The room was comfortable and the rates resonable. We plan on staying there again when w reurn to Clayton NY.

We rented one of their small 10hp boats to go fishing for the day off-season, and we were so impressed that we are coming back! The cottages are right on the water in a small semi-private cove and the docks are right there. It looks like there are more cabins up away from the shore for the landlubbers. The owner... More
