Cable tv stations has good selections; wifi had a good signal. It was a cold windy neat, and room was comfortable, Right on Lake Champlain with its own beach,it is... More

This place is great. Read some of the reviews and don't know when they stayed here, but we have 3 rooms and all were very clean. Open your door and look at the lake. Price is great. We stayed our first month here at the days inn and it cost us 2300. that was a corporate rate. Here it almost... More

Rooms are clean, good value for your money, great AC friendly staff. All u have to do is open your door walk at the most 40 feet and you are at the private beach - walk a little further (in your Pajamas if u want) on the beach and u will hit McDonalds - come on its way too easy... More

I booked online after reading the reviews thinking it would be a decent no frills stop-over with a nice view of the water. The location is very good as indicated in the reviews with a nice little private beach. The motel accommodates by the week and month also so there are some people that appear to stay long term. There... More

Location is great, but linens and the bathroom are dirty. I found hairs and dirt in the bed when I tried to sleep. I also found bugs on the floor. We ended up sleeping on the bed with our full clothes on. The wifi is so weak that I had to sit next to the office to get my computer... More

I would be the first to tell you that the rooms are somewhat outdated and small. But for our group, the location (Close to SUNY Plattsburgh) and the beach made out stay wonderful. We fished, swam and went out in the Kayak while staying at Golden Gate. We had two BBQ's with us cooking right next to the sand and... More

Though the exterior of this vintage motel is very basic, the room was fresh and clean and the motel offers it's own private beach with a swimming area roped off in Lake Champlain. It is a great value for folks on a budget and downtown Plattsburgh is walkable for dining (approx 30 minutes). The motel manager is very friendly. Though... More

Stayed one night over July 4th. Great location because we could see the fireworks right on the beach. The room was small. Stated the room could sleep 3. King bed and pull out sofa bed. If the sofa bed was out there was no room to walk in the room. The bathroom was very small. This motel is unique and... More

The place is odd in the fact that the room was very clean with a fridge, microwave and a view of the lake. No vending machines and tenants that hang around doorways for long periods of time was the creepy part. Everyone one was nice but for us it's definitely a one night, passing through kind of place. Don't get... More

This place is pure vintage! The room was badly in need of updating but it was very clean, quiet, and the bed was super comfy. I was only there for one night and it was rainy and cold but the lake was still amazing! I've never seen a heating system like theirs but it worked, was quiet, didn't smell so... More
