My wife and I have stayed at the Ontario Place Hotel a number of times over the years going back to 2003. We discovered the location when I was training at Fort Drum for deployment to Iraq. The Ontario Place Hotel, even in winter was our refuge during that difficult time. The Ontario Place Hotel proved a wonderful place to... More

Our say in Sackets Harbor was planned but we arrived without a booking. Most of our day had been spent a bit south in Sandy Creek. My father's family had settled in Sandy Creek in its early days prior to the Civil War. Five years ago, at the time of my only brother and father's passing, I decided to donate... More

We had not booked anywhere for the evening and at our normal stopping time we found ourselves in Sackets Harbor. It looked like a nice little town so we had a look at the hotel and decided to check in. There is nothing exceptional about the place but it was clean and tidy and we thought good value for money....

Sackett's Harbor is a great place for a summer visit and the Ontario Place is in the right location for walking everywhere. It is a bit tired but clean and the room rates are reasonable. This was our second visit. It was super hot requiring AC continuously. The AC was quiet and held a constant temperature. We would definitely stay... More

We spent one night at the Ontario Place Hotel as a fairly convenient alternative to an I-81 exit hotel in Watertown. It was only 15 minutes off of 81 and entirely worth the extra time. The hotel itself is fairly unattractive from the outside, looking like some sort of dorm from long ago, and the interior is really not all... More

The building was built in 1920 as the Imperial Dog Biscuit factory and then purchased by Clavillos date packing factory. 20+ years ago it was converted into The Ontario Place Hotel. So, we did the best we could with the building appearance. More

The town has 5 -6 open stores to shop, a excellent brew pub to visit and some great restaurants to visits in the area . The facilities were excellent, and older hotel in a centrally located area of the village. Room was updated... More

We love staying at the hotel since it is so convenient to restaurants and the harbor but the hotel needs some upgrades. It is looking quite worn in the rooms. Amenities need improving. Staff are very nice and friendly. We will stay there again because of the convenience but they do need to freshen the rooms up. I would say... More

We have water saver toilets and shower heads. Guests are encouraged to let the towels dry and reuse if possible. Each room has energy efficient... More

Established hotel that has been updated. Spacious room with harbor view actually had a harbor view. Environmentally conscious amenities and policies were a plus for me. The hotel is walking distance from good restaurants and historic sites.

Rented Get Away suite Rm 407 for an anniversary weekend. Do not rent this room unless you want to pay $245 a night for a room that was worth about $85. Smelled very musty.
