This hotel is geared up for Christmas. Santa does breakfast with the kids on Saturday and Sunday. Beautiful setting right on the lake, decked out for Christmas. Free breakfast each morning. Nice room, many choices. Plenty to do in Old Forge. Horse and wagons rides. Light parade, tree lighting and plenty of shopping. Wonderful fairy land to take the kids....

We are delighted that you enjoyed your weekend with us! ADK Christmas On Main in Old Forge, Thendara and Inlet, as well as Breakfast With Santa at Water's Edge Inn, is one of our favorite weekends! We like to bring a bit of an old fashioned-feel to the holiday season with our story time with cookies and milk, as well...

Thank you for your review. We're happy to know that the Guest Services binder was useful to you.

The views were breathtaking (2nd weekend in October), the staff helpful & friendly. The rooms were nicely decorated with comfortable mattresses. Common area with reading material, coffee offers another great view. Breakfast was included (more than adequate). Would recommend!

The hall to the rooms smells musty and looks dingy. Once in the room, it was clean and the beds were comfortable. The view of the lake and the little balcony were a treat. The breakfast is adequate, the staff is very accommodating, and the lounge area is very pleasant. Handicapped facilities are available.

So glad you enjoyed your accommodations, the staff, and the Continental Breakfast. Thank you for your review. I will take a closer look into the hallways to see about your comment and what may need to be done.... We are always looking to improve where we can.

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.

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,...

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.

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.
