We visit Old Forge a lot. This is the first time we have stayed in this hotel. I was very excited about booking a suite. The suite was very dusty upon arrival, I had to clean the jacuzzi tub as there was hair and scum in it, the tub handle and spout were very rickety and I was afraid they...

We have stayed here a few times when we go to Old Forge to snowmobile. The location is ideal with parking across the street for your trailers. You drive your sleds right up the front doors. The rooms are nice and clean and the beds very comfortable. Perfect place to stay and convenient to everything.

Have been to/through Old Forge, NY many times, usually to camp close by, but never to ski Mtn McCauley nor stay at the Water's Edge Inn. This past weekend we got to do both. As members of National Ski Patrol Assoc., my husband and I attended an NSP event at Mt. McCauley. In all, 84 patrollers invaded Old Forge and...

My family and I have come here 3 summers in a row and we are quite happy with it. They serve a continental, free breakfast which is pretty diverse, albeit not the best...but the staff is nice, the rooms are clean and quiet and they have a nice, cozy library/sitting area with a fire place which I always use when...

We are elated to know that you have a wonderful time when you are here. We try very hard to make sure our guests are happy. And, yes, while we frown upon feeding the wildlife for a variety of reasons (and it is illegal), mostly for their health and for cleanliness for all our guests, we do know how enjoyable...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. It sounds like you had an enjoyable stay, however you only gave us 3 stars. Is there something more we could do to improve that? We appreciate hearing suggestions. Thank you.

This hotel is geared up for Christmas. Santa does breakfast with the kids on Saturday and Sunday. Beautiful setting right on the lake, decked out for Christmas. Free breakfast each morning. Nice room, many choices. Plenty to do in Old Forge. Horse and wagons rides. Light parade, tree lighting and plenty of shopping. Wonderful fairy land to take the kids....

The hall to the rooms smells musty and looks dingy. Once in the room, it was clean and the beds were comfortable. The view of the lake and the little balcony were a treat. The breakfast is adequate, the staff is very accommodating, and the lounge area is very pleasant. Handicapped facilities are available.
