“Rainbow Shores” a fisherman’s friend I felt compelled to write a review after reading some others. We’ve been coming here for years and love the place! Several years ago new ownership took over the place and they have continued to make noticeable improvements. This is NOT the place for high class/high maintenance people and shouldn’t be compared to other brand... More

Don't let the name sway you. I've attached photos of the room I stayed in. The rooms were shoddily cleaned as shown in the photos and in dire need of upgrade. While on the toilet you couldn't shut the door no room for your knees. Entry door very difficult to unlock due to age and the doors needed shouldering to... More

The rooms were smelly, doors hard to open, no AC, no ice had to get bagged ice from the bar and was charged $2,. I was quoted on the phone $75 a night but when... More

I wanted a place on the lake and booked this on an impulse. We took three rooms in the cabins and once we got over our surprise at how basic they were, we fell in love with the place. Incredible sunsets, beautiful grounds, a real experience. Renovations are underway and when complete will justify a price far higher than we... More

The grounds and the view of the lake was do peaceful. The room that we slept in was moldy, dirty and the floors were very wet. We put towels down on the rugs to soak up the moisture and all this brown dirt came off the floor. I don't know if this problem will be resolved by next year

We booked our room at this hotel in July of 2012. There were numerous places to stay in Pulaski, but we chose this place because it was on the water's edge of Lake Ontario and the great reviews of their restaurant. My wife loves sunsets, and we thought it would be great to see it not only from the restaurant,... More

History has it that the original hotel was a stop-over for bootleggers bringing Canadian whiskey to the US by horse drawn wagon over a frozen Lake Ontario. Rumor has it that smuggled barrels of the Canadian elixir were stored in a secret room in the basement. Unfortunately many more were lost offshore when the wagons broke through the ice. The... More

Lets start with the positives - right on Lake Ontario - beautiful scene with the woods right up to the stone beach to the water - gorgeous sun sets. Surprisingly good restaurant with a great big patio looking right over the water. The facility is quite run down - its a old main building that houses the restaurant, a collection... More
