We booked a room for one night and stayed another after the first night. The rates are so very resonable. The grounds are right on the river and very well maintained. A great spot in Clayton. You can watch the few ships that travel the river each day from the dock. Harvey, Gordie and Sherry are super friendly, accommodating and... More

This is a great place. Very clean and very well maintained. We stayed in a cottage. You can walk down to river. There is even a small marina. Nice pool. Campfires in the evening. Owner is really sweet, and her son is an astronaut.

Great Amenities!! We booked a few rooms for a friend’s wedding in the area and decided to have people meet at the hotel for a cook out. The amenities are great; there were two gas grills, fire pit, and a screened gazebo. The manger brought us wood for the fire pit and started it for us. There is also a... More

The price was the best that I could find for comparable places to stay. The owners were sooo friendly and accommodating and the views were absolutely amazing. I have not had very many experiences that were this good! I will be back!! Awesome!

We were only in town for a night and luckily we were able to stay here in one of the cottages. The place was immaculately clean, had two bedrooms, a full bath, kitchen and screened in front porch. The family that runs the place is extremely friendly and helpful. If you want a nice, quiet place to relax while in... More

Service was great. The owners are warm welcoming. The room are modest, but more than adequate. Great location to the main road, into town. My room did not have an iron, nor ironing board, so that could of set me back. I will go back there again!

I have stayed there many times but only in the motel area. Management is beyond wonderful and the place is very well kept. Definitely recommend especially if it's your first time in the 1000 Islands! I love to visit in September when things are quieter.

We chose West Winds Motel & Cottages for our girls' weekend last weekend. We were very impressed with the location and accomodations - not fancy but clean and comfortable. The location is great - you can get a glimpse of the St. Lawrence from the office area but if you want to walk or drive down the hill you can... More

I most certainly enjoyed my stay on two different nights over a one week period. Everything top notch from the very welcoming check in to the advice on restaurants to a great night's sleep. Although I wasn't able to get a single unit because of my late request I was very surprised at the very large size of the two... More
