My boyfriends sister reserved a cabin as his birthday present this year. The owner was amazing allowing her to book a cabin for a single night. We were given the groundkeepers cabin. It was on the small side. The bedroom is in the kitchenette. It did however serve its purpose as a place to sleep and shower as we spent... More

Had a nice stay for a couple of days while visiting Thousand Islands. Couldn't beat the price! The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful and more than accommodating. The room is a little outdated and had a slight musty order, but nothing that would make me refuse to stay. Each unit had it's own picnic table in front of it... More

Even though we had a very small room (#5), it was all we needed. There is so much to do in the Thousand Islands. And there was a lot to do here at the West Winds Motel & Cottages. We had a nice picnic table right outside our room, there was a community fire pit every night with great seating,... More

It has been 22 years since we have been married and Harv and Sherry were nice enough to have us for our honeymoon in 1993. Over the years, we have stayed at West Winds in our favorite room 8 in the motel. Impeccably clean and comfortable accommodations is an understatement. The Hurley's have done an outstanding job maintaining their property,... More

This was our second year staying at Westwinds. We have already booked next year and are hoping to rent a cottage then . Staff and owners are very nice and rates are good. Docks are great for the boat . We stayed in the hotel in 2 rooms and beds were comfortable. Can't wait until next year !

If you are looking for fancy Wear Winds is not for you. If you are seeking clean relaxing comfort in a friendly atmosphere this is it! We stayed in a 1 bedroom motel room. Price was very reasonable. Bed was very comfortable. Free HBO and WIFI. Room only had a shower which was fine with us and has plenty of... More

We have stayed at West Winds at least once a year since 2008 and have never been disappointed. This year's visit lived up to our expectations. The grounds and buildings are well-maintained and very clean. Every member of the staff is not only attentive and responsive but also just plain friendly. It's almost like a home away from home -...

Recently rented a cottage at West Winds for a fishing vacation. Cottage was very clean, good mattress comfort, adequate kitchenware. Cable TV, Internet, gas fireplace, AC, fans, outside grill, picnic table provided for our use. Right from our living room window was a fantastic view of the St Lawrence. We also sipped wine, met other guests while watching sunsets from... More

Westwinds was suggested by a fellow entrepreneur who has stayed there for the weekend of the Clayton Wine & Food Festival numerous times. My husband and I own a small hot sauce & salsa company, Chef William Creations, and had a booth at the festival for the first time. So, we took the suggestion and were able to book the... More

Clean, comfortable and friendly. Owners are there and ready to assist with any needs. River access is great and beautiful...fire pit for all to share and gather around, pool is clean and well kept. Staff is friendly and helpful also which reflects highly on the owners. WE will be going back for many years....
