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

Our family has been vacationing at West Winds for more than 20 years. We started going when our sons were younger and now we are joined by them and their families each year. We have stayed in the motel as well as several of the cottages. The accommodations have always been wonderful - clean, nicely furnished and comfortable. The docks... More

Clayton’s tradition of charm and hospitality began more than a century ago when the 1000 Islands Region was the playground of the nation’s most powerful. Now that tradition is embraced by a new generation of inn-keepers. West Winds Motel and Cottages is a charming facility of a former era with clean, comfy, attractive air-conditioned motel rooms and the friendliest proprietors... More

Last year my daughter and myself spent a long weekend at the motel, and we were so impressed with the place that we returned and rented a cottage, #19, for the week. I think it was one of our best vacations. The cottage was spacious and very clean and well supplied with everything you would need! The pool was well... More

Our family has enjoyed the hospitality at West Winds cottages in Clayton for 15 years. Our oldest was two and we were expecting our second daughter when we first visited West Winds - it has been a family tradition ever since! The owners take the time to write us (addressing each member of our family) each Spring to let us... More

We were greeted immediately upon arrival by Don, who lives on the property and said he was available any time if we needed anything. He checked us in right away to our motel unit #9 which was immaculate, clean and modern. The motel is at the top of the hill so he suggested we drive down to the water. There... More
