The location has so much potential. The rooms are nice but the "tenants" aren't. Seems like this motel is more like section 8 housing more than a vacation destination. It would be one thing if this motel catered to guests but it doesn't. I would agree with a fellow reviewer NOT to leave anything of value in your car or...

Great motel for a weekend visit during SUNY Plattsburgh Family Weekend. The price was too good to be true for lakeside accommodations. After reading some of the reviews we were definitely nervous going into this. But the only real drawback was that the rooms are a little small (although admittedly we have 4 people in a room really meant for...

Stayed there this past weekend as we were in town for a funeral. Pros: Someone put a lot of money into renovations. Really liked the interior of the hotel. Nice flooring, cabinets, fixtures. The front desk worker was really nice :o) Cons: Despite Expedia guaranteeing my credit card would not be run until I physically checked in, my card was...

I had a reservation of two nights and modified it to only one night, the owner just canceled the whole reservation without a notice! I came there at 8 pm with little kids and the office was closed. It looks like a horrible place anyway

We had two units. The first unit was an apartment with one bedroom. It was clean and functional, but very outdated. It, strangely, had hooks everywhere: closets, the bathroom, on the refrigerator. It was right off a beach on the lake. Nice view of Vermont. The second was a hotel unit. It was gorgeous with beamed ceilings and a brand...

Clean rooms, one of our two rooms smelled musty, great kitchen area in the rooms! TV had a good selection of channels. Right on the beach so would be nice in the summer! Not a great view from the rooms, but you're literally a few steps away from the lake and what a beautiful view!!

Hotel looks run-down with very old decor. The rooms were clean but musty smelling. If you're looking for a bed at very cheap price this would be the place. Not close to much however downtown is only about 10 minutes away. The parking lot was full of sand and/or dirt? Not sure why?

We were looking for a place to stay near the Adirondacks for 2 nights on a weekend and this came up as the cheapest option with reasonable reviews from fellow travelers. It wasn't the peak season but still the rooms had people who looked mostly like tenants. The rooms were clean and tidy and taken care of regularly. The doors...
