Large picture window looked out over our small patio to the big lawn that sloped down to the water. Stayed three nights and the continental breakfast was OK the first two mornings but they had run out of everythng by 8:15 the third... More

We had a clean room, comfortable beds, plenty of outlets for electronics. There were Adirondack chairs outside of our room to enjoy the view & relax. The continental breakfast was nice with a good selection. Our kids enjoyed the indoor pool. Yes the motel part is dated but for us it added to the charm. We would definitely stay at... More

This by far is the worst place I have ever stayed, and that's saying a lot. First off the pictures on the website are very misleading, as they are of the new lobby, not the circa 1970's rooms. The heater was so old, I am not sure how to describe it , other than it extremely unsafe and almost impossible... More

The people who work there are great and very friendly. the pool is really nice and warm and clean. the motel is close to tons of things to do. the only thing I was a touch unhappy about is there is no fridge or coffee maker or microwave. but that was overlooked because it was the perfect spot for everything...

We stayed here again this past weekend and as usual we had a fantastic time. Our rooms had new TV's, mattress, headboards and bedspreads and the rooms looked beautiful. We have never had a complaint about this motel and the location is the best in town. The room rates are very reasonable especially for the location. The owners are the... More

We just ran up for my birthday surprise dinner with my wife and bucket of shrimp. She booked it so she couldn't blame me for not reading the reviews 1st! As this was beautiful on the website because they only tout the new beautiful office. The pool is right behind it so it's like WOW! Then you go to your... More

8-30-15 I have to say reading these reviews after we booked our room I got a little nervous, We had rented the lower two rooms #37 & #38 lake view (No AC) for myself and two dear friends of ours. Once we got there, we checked out the lodge and the pool, which I thought was very nice, very clean.... More

Room was very basic but clean. The room smelled of a very strong odor. I think they should have spent some of the money that spent on their pool and lobby and put it into their rooms. No hair dryers, but the office did lent me one.

Decided to stay after driving home from Lake Placid. Cheap rate, clean room, lake view, pool and great location. Just what we needed. Room was clean and neat. Free breakfast was ok. We were able to walk to the beach, play ground and town. Will stay again if needed.

The hotel room was neat and clean. The cleaning staff was excellent . The continental breakfast was ok. The pillows were not comfortable, the shower was the worst part. You were never sure if you would freeze or get burned. The water temp fluctuated real bad. Not sure if I would stay there again
