Our family visited the Margate for a week in July! Our stay couldn't have been any better. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly, helpful, and go the extra mile to be sure their guests are happy! The resort has everything and more to offer. There is a large outdoor pool always clean and sparkling with...

The Margate Resort is a charming resort that is ideal to hold any sort of event. I was there as part of a Doctor Who convention and loved how accommodating the staff and venue was. The water access on the beach is amazing and the views at night are nothing short of breathtaking. The staff is very responsive to any... More

My stay was comfortable enough, but housekeeping is lacking. Loud, large family outside of the room one night. That being said, probably good for a family on a budget. Did have a problem with my key one night, and maintenance was prompt and helpful,

Blackstones has a great bar on the beach with a nice selection of food and drink options that you can enjoy at the covered dock tables or take to go. The "Margate" burger is not to be missed! Coconut shrimp and scallops wrapped in bacon with maple glaze are excellent also!

We were in the house directly at the lake but our room was facing the parking lot. Two double beds for $109/night, breakfast included, and for that price, I guess we shouldn't expect too much! The rooms are in desperate need of a face lift. Old rugs, peeling wallpaper in the bathroom, and paper thin walls. The housekeeping basically consisted... More

At over $200 per night you would think that you would get an above average room and resort experience. As many others have said, the resort is dated and probably has not had many upgrades since it was built. Decor and ambiance are very reminiscent of hotels in the 70's and 80's. It's the little things that people remember. For... More

We have stayed here 2x over the past year. First time was for a wedding on the hotel grounds. 2nd time was just for a place to stay up in the Laconia area. Lets start with the good news: The location is amazing. Right on the lake you can drive your boat right up to their dock and park it.... More

We stayed at the West Inland. It is the motel section of this wonderful place. The service was wonderful. The staff was very very friendly and the room we stayed was a lakeview. It's steps away from the water and the pavilion where you can eat, drink and be merry. The water is exetremly clean to swim in. We just... More

This Hotel is on the shore of the big lake. The Hotel itself is average, especially if you are in the building across the street. If you do get water view its very nice. The outdoor bar is great. I stay here when I go to concerts at the BONH pavilion and its awesome.
