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

Dear Mr. Zaborsky, Thank you for staying with us. I apologize we did not make you feel more welcome upon your arrival. The Loft Suite in which you stayed is one of our premier suites as it has a kitchenette, living room, large Jacuzzi tub and master king bedroom so it does cost more than our standard rooms or smaller...

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

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 Little outdated but adds to the charm.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

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.

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
