We just spent 4 nights in one of the efficiency rooms that the hotel has to offer. 2 double beds in an open loft upstairs; a queen bed and a very small lumpy sleeper sofa downstairs. There was one bathroom, a microwave, a small refrigerator and a kitchen sink. Overall, we would say that the quality and cleanliness is what... More

Nice clean hotel, very nice helpful front desk. Shout out to Donna May on the front desk. Our room was very nice, spacious and clean, with a beautiful view of the lake. Sunset was amazing. Our room had a microwave, fridge, coffee maker with the fixings. We were there for a mid week overnight stay. Breakfast was good with hot... More

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights in June 2014. We had stayed here many years earlier when the place was relatively new and recommended by locals. Since then the place has changed hands and has declined in quality markedly. Our room was in the building closest to the river. The main stairs had frayed carpeting going up to... More

We are 2 sr citz ladies who use canes and I explained that on the phone. They quoted us the wrong price over the phone and when we got there and the price was double. This is MUD SEASON, not tourist season. I've always had off season rates previously when it wasn't tourist season. Wasn't handicap accessible, needed to climb... More

One of the worst hotels I have stayed at!.. They market themselves as a resort!!!!...far from it!...the room was filthy and extremely dark...poor lighting!...the iron that I used to press my white shirt shot out black smut all over it!! The inclusive breakfast was simply horrible.....no words to describe it!

I remember when The Stonefence was a beautiful place to stay. Our son was a student at a local university so there were times we would stay there. From 2009-2014 we have seen a major decline. I have found holes in the blankets & cobwebs everywhere. We have stayed in the rooms right along the River, the rooms closest to... More

My husband and I had to stay in this area overnight for business reasons. We were put up by a local university. We had stayed at the same place before maybe eight to ten years ago, and I remember it as being quite nice then. Now however, it is not kept up as it should be. It's obvious that at... More

The location and setting was perfect for us, for 2 nights...a funeral in Ogdensburg. We shared the "apartment" with another couple. When we reported the light bulb not working, it was fixed right away. We had a hard time finding the kitchen light, but later found it hiding behind the microwave. We had a full kitchen, 2 full bathrooms, 2... More

We found this motel/lodge in the AAA book, and the pictures on their website looked OK. The 'waterfront' rooms, of which ours was one, have a great view of the St. Lawrence river and passing boat and ship traffic. Otherwise, the place is pretty dumpy. Ours was the only sliding door that did not have a screen. The light bar... More

Dirty, un-maintained, over-priced. I am told this used to be a nice (at least clean) place. Evidently the new owners have let it slide into disrepair and debauchery. I was there 12 hours, which was 12 hours too long. The sink in the room didn't work, fridge was dirty/smelly, carpets old/dirty, outlets didn't work, sink in bathroom didn't drain, etc.... More
