The balcony and view were very nice, the bedding was warm and appeared new, the Room was located a few doors from the first floor restroom and judging... More

The room was very nice.. I def suggest a Water's view.. I believe all rooms come with a balcony. The other side of hotel is a view if the water park .. I imagine it would be noisy during summer. It was a great location .. You could walk to everywhere. Room was nice. Bathroom was nice though some would... More

This is an older property with good sized rooms with balconies at least on the water side, and a decent. complementary breakfast, Missing are in-room coffee makers. .Parking was ample, at least in the off season.

Every room, regardless of which side of the building, has its own private balcony. And with the Fall colors we are experiencing right now, they... More

Very nice hotel. Beds very comfortable. Room rugs need a good cleaning. Continental breakfast very nice. Coffee and tea available throughout the day and evening. Bathroom set- up in room does not allow for a lot of privacy. However water pressure is great and lots of hot water.

The hotel is in a good location for the waterpark but it's a little overpriced for what you get. The walls are very thin so sound travels freely from room to room, very annoying and there are no elevators. I was told the waterpark and the hotel are jointly owned so there's a definite season. The continental breakfast was better... More

Dear Guest, Our hotel has some historical significance behind it as it was relocated to its present location on the start of the Fulton Chain of Lakes from its original location on North Street when it was known as The Pioneer. After it was relocated, the hotel was added onto and this was all before the current owners purchased it... More

Facility boasts of being fully non-smoking. It was even etched onto the entrance door. First room we were given reeked of cigarette smoke. Second room seemed better, smelled of room freshener. Later that evening, I could smell stale smoke and chalked it up to residue on my clothes from the first room. Guess I was being too forgiving. I have... More

Stayed overnight as part of the Adirondack Scenic Railroad adventure. Accommodations and amenities are very family oriented, which is an important feature for our bunch. Felt very comfortable. Needed a way back to train station for departure back to Utica and Beth came to the rescue with a wonderful solution! Cheers!
