Traveling with our borzoi is always a bit of a challenge and a hit or miss experience. Though our hotel tastes run to the Ritz Carlton and Peninsula, we frequently find ourselves at a La Quinta or Quality Inn as a concession to our dog. On a recent trip from Toronto to NYC, we decided to stop in the Finger Lakes region on a whim. We left the highway to find Geneva, NY. After being turned away at the Hampton Inn and the lovely Ramada Inn right on the lake, we continued along the main road to check out the Microtel and Days Inn ( a recently rebranded Motel 6) which do accept pets. Neither option was what we had hoped to find so we continued to Lake Canandaigua where we were lucky enough to find the Inn on Lake.
The Inn's pet policy was limited (no water view rooms) to a standard room or a suite with a $50 difference in the price. We opted for a standard room because it had better natural light. The room was a nice size, the king size bed comfortable and the window actually opened to allow the fresh fall air in. Wifi was available in the room. The staff was very friendly and well trained. The lobby area offered complimentary coffee and tea throughout the day.
The grounds were beautifully kept with Adirondack chairs along the lake wall, a covered gazebo, outdoor pool and a cute lakeside patio bar where we spent the afternoon chatting with the locals. In addition, there was a lovely dining room and bar with outside patio service which offered the option of dock and dine.
All in all I would say this was a charming little retreat in a great town. A great break from a tedious journey. Will definitely return.
