I can't figure out why I haven't reviewed this place before. This has been our home for the past 4 years whenever visiting our son at SUNY Fredonia. Our first few visits to the area we tried other places & this is the best value you will find. Ask for the Fredonia parent's discount, if you have no other discount programs to apply. The hotel is nothing really special, you'll find all of the usual things; fitness center, pools in & out, a restaurant with limited selections, and the usual breakfast bar fare. (Yes, make your own waffles!) What you won't find at a similar chain; a marina, harbor-view rooms, a walk along the water, and a bar. Just the bar alone was worth it to us after a very long drive! Front desk & staff have always been very good, and complaints have been few. The small suites they have are worth it if you have kids, especially teenagers. Harbor view is worth asking for. First floor tends to be loud, especially on weekends when they host groups. And the parking lot is sketchy & not well lit at night. All things considered, we will miss visiting this place.
