Comfortable bed, gorgeous views fr the room, friendly staff and great recommendations for food and drink

Check in was an issue because the Orbitz reservation wasn't received, but that was quickly resolved. The room was clean. Staff great. Kayaks, canoes, pedal boats and bikes are provided for guest use. There is a $10 "resort fee" to cover the cost even if the items are not used. There is outside seating provided with Adirondack chairs and one outdoor sofa configuration. Good restaurants are an easy walk

The room did not have enough outlets. The curtain could not be closed while the window air conditioner was on so privacy was an issue.

It was refreshing that the property didn’t try to make more money by renting the canoes or kayaks, they are complimentary. The room is small, carpet dirty, shower was the worse shower. There was no normal shower head, just forced water that hurt your skin. The TV that we only turned on before bedtime, all channels had “snow” and none had a clear picture. We left for dinner around 7:30p and when we returned there was no parking in a normal spot we had to squeeze in a spot near the grass by the pool. They charged my card at check-in and didn’t tell me until I checked out. I had a gift card I would have liked to use. The employees all seemed nice but not too interested in going above and beyond . Again , the employees were nice and it seemed genuine. The whole area was not all hyped up to be by all the reviews. Be ready to be disappointed. Another small town with closed stores.

My kids loved the paddle boats. Tens of geese swam around while us kayaking. The beautiful and quiet lake was one of the most memorable of the trip.

Very family friendly. Loved the free use of canoes, kayaks, fishing poles, basketballs, tennis racquets and bikes of all sizes. My boys had the time of their life. Will definitely be staying with them again.

Check in was nice and quick. Amenities were basic but everything was in order. Nice place - would stay again.

Nice basic hotel on the lake. Good location. Met our needs.

Only one staff @ check in (7:45pm)& waited 20 minutes to check in. Room clean but dated/slightly worn. Additional charge for facility when did not use any equipment except internet. Good location right on lake. No management staff after 10:30 pm & guests next to me stayed on porch drinking & partying past 10:30pm. Locks on doors were marginal. Shower marginal.

our stay was both pleasant and enjoyable. the room was very pleasing both for its cleanliness and the view out our balcony. the staff was very friendly and helpful as we ran into some car trouble. overall we will recommend this to our friends and family and stay again.

We stayed only one night and we loved it. Dan was so friendly and helpful and accomidating. We would like to go back and stay again. Thank you to all the staff!!!

Good hotel to stay... the access to activities like boating, cycling are readily available... close to lake placid....

We had a lovely stay! Didn't get to boat or bike. They were there to use at no charge, but we will be back and take advantage of this lovely motel!!!

Thank you for staying with us.. The shower has a low flow water head on it. We have great water pressure here that most people enjoy. We asked for a credit card to charge you when you checked in you decided to use that card. It could of been any form of payment you wanted.
