We spent 3 nights in a king suite, which we upgraded to at the front desk. William, who was working the check in was most accommodating by offering a discounted price. The suite was 2 rooms including a living room and king bedroom. Both rooms had glass doors to the large deck. Very comfy. We were far enough away from... More

The inside dining room has an area that accommodates groups totaling around 25 and our class found it quite nicely done. It was a Monday so hardly anyone was in the dining room and our group had only one server but he did the job nicely. The only problem is that if you have more than six people, there can... More

My husband was here for a conference and I tagged along for the ride. The lobby and bar/restaurant are nice although the service was hit or miss at times. I only ate breakfast there and that was fine except you can't order eggs without some kind of meat and if you do not want any meat there is no concession.... More

The best thing I can say about eating here is the ambiance - the view of the lake is nice. Everything else - forget it. We waited 20 minutes to get a water, longer to actually get a drink and have our order taken. When everyone who came after us started getting their food, we asked the waiter and told... More

The only truly redeeming factor about the INN is that it is ON THE LAKE. Its not an Inn, but rather a conference center and feels like on. The rooms needed redecorating, however they were clean, expecially for a pet friendly facility. Its almost impossible to find a half way decent pet friendly facility in the finger lakes. The restaurant... More

Beautiful setting. Large suite with a balcony. Fun lakeside bar. An easy stroll down Main Street to a nice pub and a cool wine bar. The lake is quiet and pristine. The Inn is only a 15 minute drive from the NYS Thruway.

Our room had a view of the lake which was really lovely. The restaurant was excellent, we really enjoyed it! There were a couple of other restaurants within walking distance which was really nice and a cute ice cream place across the street.

This hotel is located right on Lake Canandaigua. The room was clean and comfortable. The food served by its restaurant was excellent. For the very reasonable cost, this hotel exceeded our expectations..

This was a great location for our getaway and to call home for our friends' wedding. However, it left a lot to be desired. Front-desk service was unwelcoming and terse. (As I think someone else noted, they seemed to all be very overwhelmed by the number of weddings on the site.) The room was adequate but the bathroom was simply... More

Google map the hotel and you will see that once you park your car, there is no need to move it. The "Aging" Inn has held out long enough to become the lynchpin for some exciting new "walkable" Development. When I say "Aging", I must commend them for the upkeep- it is clean, But its a case where old, looks... More
