“Cleanest place I have ever stayed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2009

I have stayed at many hotels, from Red Roof Inns to Embassy Suites/Marriotts (some pretty expensive places) but this by far was the nicest, most clean places I have stayed. I paid under $100/night. It looked like a bed and breakfast from the outside. We had one of the rooms with a jacuzzi tub. There is a lot of shops/places to eat around (walking distance) and the lake is right across the street. We went in February, late Saturday night. Sunday the shops were closed so I would just suggest if you want to shop do not go on a Sunday. We are not shoppers so it was perfect for us. I would highly recommend this place. It was a great experience!

We like to come to Skaneateles every year or so, and this is our preferred place to stay. You can't beat the quality for the price. The owners and staff take customer service very seriously. Check-in and out is a breeze. There is a very convenient courtesy kitchen with snacks and drinks on the house. The rooms are well kept. Overall, they focus on the right things, and they keep trying to improve. They do it right.

When traveling on business, I prefer to stay in small towns with home-like accommodations. The Boutique Hotel in Skaneateles was perfect! It was very comfortable, clean and quiet, and within walking distance of all sorts of great downtown shops and restaurants. When I checked in, I received all sorts of recommendations for things I could do in my free time, including local parks and walking trails. I especially liked their covered front porch, where I could sit and read. From a businessperson's standpoint, the wireless Internet was quick and consistent. Overall, my stay was wonderful and I will return to the Boutique Hotel the next time business takes me to the area.

My wife and I came to Skaneateles for a Dickens Christmas and we could not have picked a more perfect place to stay. As this was our first time here, we had no idea what to expect but what a pleasant surprise to find that our hotel was one of the places that was a stop on the Dickens tour. So there were various characters coming in for a warm drink and our hosts' hospitality all day. Which was a great pleasure to us, it helped fit the mood and friendliness of the event, the town and the hotel. We could not have asked for more.
The personal attention given to us as new guests (with a personalized letter giving us all the information we needed and tons and tons of info about places to see, eat and shop at in the town was incredible.
Also the location of the place was perfect. As we were only minutes away from most of the shops, restaurants and other sights to see - we found ourselves being able to go out and go back into our room whenever we wanted during our time there.
It was a wonderful experience. About the only thing we'd wish was to have more time there.
We will definitely go back and stay at this hotel on our next visit to this beautiful town by a beautiful lake.

  • Liked — location - right in the middle of all the shops and sights of a small town main street
  • Disliked — nothing. Everything was great!

We loved the Skaneateles Suites & Boutique Hotel. It is a series of small cottages, equipped with large bathrooms and kitchenettes. The place was immaculate, and most important for us, pet friendly! Our dog Archie loved his little backyard. Another wonderful, and unexpected delight, was a stocked mini-fridge with coffee, orange juice, oatmeal, danish, soda, etc. all available for us to enjoy for breakfast and snacks in our long car ride home.

Thank you Curt and Toni for taking such pride in your business. It was a joy to stay. I hope when we travel through New York again, that we can stay longer.

Sincerely,
Rich and Eileen, Chicago

Skaneateles Suites is actually a Collection of Places to Stay, from the Bungalow Suites to the Boutique Hotel to furnished apartments, Condos and vacation rentals. It is fairly common for Guests to get them a little confused.

We thank 'ekochanny' for such kind words, but, they actually stayed at the pet-friendly Suites, not the Boutique Hotel.

The Skaneateles Suites are kids and pet-friendly, The Boutique Hotel is not.

Thanks and we will see you next trip.

Our second visit over Thanksgiving was better than the first. Hotel is quiet and intimate. Perfectly located to all the action and shopping. Staff is very personable and friendly. We will certainly repeat this trip.

  • Liked — Quiet, clean and accessible to downtown attractions.
  • Disliked — No complaints on any aspect.

We have a dog. It's the only place that allowed them, so we would have taken what we would have gotten; but we were truly surprised when we arrive. (This was actually our second stay at the Bungalows - November, 2007, was the first time, so we confirmed our first experience.)

It's clean beyond experience - usually places that allow dogs can be a bit dingy - but The Suites were clean and crisp. The furniture was modern and attractive, (we didn't get a chance to use the jacuzzi), and the accommodations were just great. The attitude of the people was also great. Even if we didn't have a dog with us, we would stay because it gave us a separate, private place with more than adequate parking that was conveniently located away from the noise, but close to the village.

You can't miss!
