“Glad we stayed here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2011

Glad we stayed here and not Alex Bay for our short vacation. Easy to walk to sights and restaurants. Easy to interface with the hotel staff. Wi-fi works fine. One word of caution: if you have T-Mobile for cell service, there isn't any around the hotel much less the Sackets Harbor area. Coverage is spotty at best. You have to get out to Route 3 to get any good cell coverage. Best nearby food and drink and service are at Tin Pan Galley and Sackets Harbor Brewing Company--definitely NOT the Boathouse.

Stayed at the Ontario Place Hotel the weekend before my son deployed. The room was newly renovated. The Hotel is located right in the heart of town. The staff was warm and friendly. Tea and coffee available all day. The rate was amazingly low considering you can see the lake from the window. It was a great stay. Would definately go there again.

We booked back in January for a room for two adults and two children; did not feel initially made welcome by receptionist and were given a key to a room with one king-size bed and no apparent other sleeping arrangement. Receptionist insisted that was what we had booked (there was a single bed-settee as well) and could not say where we could all sleep (maybe she expected us all to share the bed??) She summoned owner, who said that was all that was available but he did install a fold-up bed for my son for no extra charge - so all ended happily. He did admit there had been refurbishments since we had booked. Some noisy people arriving after 1 am on second night spoiled sleep (and the breakfast was disappointing) but owner and surroundings rescued it for us overall. Would thoroughly recommend the two-nations cruise of the 1000 islands from Alexandria Bay with stop-off at Boldt Castle.

This is the second time we stayed here. We enjoyed it very much. Restaurants and the harbor at your doorstep. Our ground floor King room was spacious and included a dog bowl and dog treats. Rooms are not plush but bed and furnishings were very comfortable. Room is a little dark because only one large window but we didn't spend that much time in the room. I recommend this for travelers who like to park their car and wander around historical areas.

Restaurants: Tin Pan Galley is great, they allowed our dog to sit with us under the gazebo and their food was incredible. The Brewery next door also has terrific food and allowed our dog on the front patio.

Our sons live a short drive away and we stay here multiple times a year when visiting them. We generally have a good stay, however, on this occassion there was a party going on down the hall from our room until 3:30 am. The night clerk tried on at least 2 occassions to quiet them without result. In the morning I was asked by the woman at the desk "Did you complain?" I stated "No, it didn't seem to make any difference." She then stated "Well, if you didn't complain then I can't do anything for you." Her demeanor was rude and her words were uncaring. The hotel itself is nice and we'll undoubtedly stay here again but only because there is not an acceptable place to stay in a 50 mile radius. I would recommend to others and have had family and friends stay here in the past, however, for the reasons stated above I may not in the future.

When in Sackets Harbor, we always stay at the Ontario Place. We were pleased to find out this visit that the Traveler's room that we usualy book were newly renovated! Dave and the staff did a great job at making us feel like this is our "home away from home" while we are here. BTW: it doesn't hurt that the Sackets Harbor Brew Pub is just steps away!

A very adequate room. Clean, a little small, and perfect location. An older building, but reasonably well kept up. We were not impressed, but would stay here again. Be sure to eat at the Tin Pan Galley just up the street. Inside looked cramped, but the outside courtyard reminded us of New Orleans. The hangover burger Sunday morning was great.
