“A rare retro find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

This is a rare find. Stay here if you can -- old-time motels like this with great location are disappearing. It's right on the beach, literally 30 seconds from room to water! THe only draw-back on the beach is that the water is very shallow for a long way out (if you have young kids, you'll probably consider this a good thing). Nice view, especially from our second floor South facing room. The decor is a little faded, but that sort of adds to the charm. The rooms are well-appointed, and ours had a little kitchen with all the necessary pots and table-ware, and everything was clean. Friendly price, with a discount for multiple-night stays.

Room Tip: Try to get a second floor room facing South, towards the lake end of the building.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

Great place if you love the beach!!! View from room balcony of Lake Champlain and Vermont is amazing. Our room on the second floor was newly renovated. It was super clean and looked better than any other room I've been in, in Plattsburg. They have a private beach and from there you can walk in the shallow water to the city beach and state park. We brought our kayaks and bikes and had a great time. We pretty much biked from our motel all over the city and kayaked directly from the beach just 100 feet from our door.

Room Tip: Take a room on second floor facing south.
