After labor day there's plenty of room and parking. Nice place to crash the night before the 90miler start. It's right on the lake, nice view. Very good location. The one drawback is that the front desk closes at 9:00pm. But the continental breakfast is ready at 6am. I'd definitely stay again. Clean room, comfortable beds.

Dear 90-Miler, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We specially had the breakfast ready for you at 6:00 am that morning because of the Canoe Classic event. After Labor Day on weeknights (in your case Thursday night) we close the Front Desk at 9:00, but arrangements are made for late arrivals and/or if you have any... More

We stayed two nights here the people were great. Room was very clean and comfy. We forgot our jackets and hotel called us before we got home and arranged to have jackets shipped to us. I was amazed they did that for us. Will stay again. Sally

The hotel was not bad, a nice view from the King Lake View was worth the extra cost. I would stay away from the Park View first floor rooms as they are a view of the parking lot and you would need to have your blinds closed while in the room. The room was a bit cramped with dated furniture,... More

Thank you for staying with us at Water's Edge Inn. The Lake View King Suites were just newly remodeled. Everything in the room is new... the furniture, carpeting, paint, mattresses, triple sheeting, deep soaking tubs, light fixtures...everything. Sorry you found the furniture to be dated. In addition to the suite overlooking the lake, it is divided so that there is... More

Another stay at this well located motel. Kids can easily walk to water park and then go karts at night. Many restaurants within easy walk so no driving needed at night. King suite has a very nice new bathroom and plenty of room overall. Staff at front desk is very accomadating, esp Jody. We will be back again.

The check in was quick and easy. There was plenty of parking and the lobby and rooms were clean. The balcony was very tiny with two oversized adirondack chairs on it there was barely any room to move. The size of the room with two double beds was pretty cramped. I just expected a bit more for the amount of... More

Stayed at the Waters Edge for two nights with grandkids. Our welcome greeting was not very warm. No smiles or warmth. Room was adequate however the pull out couch had a slightly musty smell. The breakfast was ok but nothing great. Has an indoor pool and exercise room. The best feature was it is right across the street from the... More

Located directly across the road from Water Safari, this inn is very convenient. If there's a need to head back to the room, you're right there. Short walk to Slickers for dinner or the downtown. The room was very clean and spacious (2x double room). We found the bed really firm but slept fine. AC and Wifi both worked fine.... More

My wife and I stayed overnight. The front desk staff were not really that friendly and seemed stressed. This hotel is directly across from a water park and many families with children were staying here. The rooms are average size and the hallways were a bit cramped. The room was very clean and well maintained. We liked the porch overlooking... More
