4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We stayed here for two nights. The decor was just okay. The beds were SO comfy! And I loved that we had a balcony overlooking the water. The pool was indoor heated which was nice but, a bit small to accommodate how many people can stay here at once. It was walking distance to shops and restaurants. Also, right across... More

Very nice hotel! The room was comfortable I liked that we had our own balcony, great location across from Water Safari. My only complaint was that breakfast could have been a little better with a few more choices. We will book another trip here in the future.

Great locatioon, centrally located, across the street from Water Safari. Walking distance to restaurants and shops. Little outdated but adds to the charm. Easy and very friendly check in. Very quiet rooms, with mostly all families with child this was unusual for a hotel. Cute balconies.

We traveled to the hotel twice - in June and again in July. The hotel itself is okay. It's dated - but so is most of Old Forge and we didn't see any modern hotel there. We were disappointed with the free breakfast. The "hot" waffle "fries" (if you want to call it that) was awful. It tasted like it... More

Dear Guest, We are happy that you returned to stay with us a second time. As a matter of fact, we are the only hotel in town, let alone modern hotel (as in a chain hotel?), as every other place is a motel. What we provide is a complimentary Continental Breakfast and we try to include additional fare that is... More

The biggest plus for this hotel was its proximity to Water Safari Park. The staff was friendly and the rooms were clean and quite spacious. They were a little dated but not objectionable. Breakfast buffet was limited and unexceptional but the breakfast room uwas spotless. There is a nice great room and a lovely view of the lake.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. We're glad you enjoyed our amenities and the great location right across from Enchanted Forest Water Safari. I would like to explain that what we offer is a complimentary continental breakfast, not a breakfast buffet. I can see where you thought it was lacking if you were expecting a full buffet breakfast. There... More

Price seemed a little high, but that's probably because it's park adjacent. I'm not sure where the wheelchair access is, but it's not out front, and there's no way to the second floor except stairs. Which wasn't a big deal, it just meant my pregnant wife had no choice but to waddle up and down the steps. The room was... More

Dear Guest, The wheelchair access is at the entrance at the other end of the building. If possible, we gladly would have relocated you to the main level, with the exception that some of the suites are only on the second floor, in which case we couldn't. When people mention they have a special situation, we do our best to... More

We booked a room at Water's Edge Inn facing Enchanted Forest. The room was nice and spacious and we also pay for an extra cot because of having small children with us. The room was nice and clean and yes it had a few places in the room showing ware but overall the room was fantastic. There was a ice... More

Friendly staff greeted us in a beautiful setting. However, there was a foul smell in room, extremely bright lights, and rough as sandpaper towels! BUT, we could live with these things for one night. Looked like one of the better options in the area. The rooms with the lake view are definitely worth it.

Dear Guest, We are glad you were able to stay with us for one night. I sincerely apologize about the odor you encountered. We would have immediately addressed that for you. We used to get complaints that the lights weren't bright enough so we changed out the entire hotel and went with eco-friendlier LED bulbs. The view can be even... More

The girls at the front desk are pleasant but that's the only positive. The hotel smells musty and is in need of updates. The pool was very small and when we walked out back to the water area feces was everywhere. For the price I paid I expected better. The rooms were very stuffy and the air conditioning kept shutting... More

Dear Guest, We are constantly updating and remodeling sections of the hotel every year. I'm sorry you felt this way and you did not enjoy your stay. The air conditioners will cool down the room to the temperature you set on the AC's thermostat. Once it reaches that temperature, the AC until will turn off until it is time to... More
