I read several terrible reviews so I was reluctant to book here, but it was all that was available. The room was small, clean and had the bare minimum amenities. No place to put your luggage, no place to hang wet towels or clothes. Bring your own soap, and shampoo as what us provided is not good. There is no coffee pot, but there was 2 bottles of water with instant coffee to use in the microwave. We just went across the street for our coffee. There are no curtains over the blinds so it was never dark due to the outside light. Free wifi was available. Our tv had 2 levels, quiet or loud. There is no maid service or office personnel during early am or on evenings. Overall the room provided us with a roof over our head.

Response from Carl V, Owner at Oneida Lake Inn
Responded Aug. 19, 2016
We are a small motel located in the Sylvan Beach Resort area. We constantly strive to ensure each and every guest is 100% satisfied with there stay and the room. Cleanliness is our top priority. We provide basic soap and shampoo in each room for those that come without. The Oneida Lake Inn does not have a restaurant on site however, for convenience instant coffee and 2 complimentary bottles of Dasani water is provided in each room. There is a full convenient store across the street for those that prefer additional choices. We do not man the office 24/7 as we are a small motel and we are in and out of the office throughout the day. In the event we are out of the office we are most likely on site performing other tasks. Our phone number is posted in the front window and we are always available upon request for any services needed. We are Eco Friendly therefore, linen service is provided only upon request. We encourage all guests to inform us while they are here should they need something so that we can make your stay most enjoyable. Thanks Mgmt

Worth every penny. Walkable to town and the midway, which was perfect for my 7 year old. Great location, with the beach right across the street. My room was very clean and neat. I have stayed at other places at the beach in the past and this was by far, the cleanest and best place here.

This room was overpriced. We were upgraded to a better room with a cook top. The owner told us that previous guests complained when he upgraded them that there were no pots, pans, dishes or cutlery. Why upgrade someone to a room with a cook top then. Most of us don't travel with fry pans, etc. Wonder what the other room was like. The room was small, with no place for luggage, no place to hang any clothes, instant coffee, even though there was a keurig in the room. The room had been updated, mismatched cupboards and a hodge podge of wood colors for the headboard, dresser, etc. The tv needs to be mounted on the wall then you could view it from the bed and at least have some space on the dresser top for a suitcase. My husband went out to the parking lot to put the tag on the car (so we wouldn't be towed) while I was changing clothes and came back in and reversed the blinds because you could see in the room. There were no curtains so as soon as the sun was up it was shining in our eyes. The owner wanted me to take pictures of my drivers license and credit card with my phone and send it to him when I called to make the reservation. Kinda weird, I'm driving on the highway and I'm supposed to stop for this. Looking back we should have just stopped in verona at one of the casino hotels or gone on to Syracuse. In reading the reviews I too am wondering about the reviews posted April-July 2014. No one likes to feel gouged and that is exactly how we felt.

I am terribly sorry to hear that you had anything less than a positive experience. We strive to ensure that each & every guest enjoys their stay and is completely satisfied. The room rates at The Oneida Lake Inn are very competitive with the other lodging choices in the Sylvan Beach Resort area. Typically lodging rates in resort areas are higher than in non resort areas. The primary reason for a guest room upgrade is not for a stove for but for a room that is more spacious. If there is a problem of any sort we would like to know about it while you are here so that we can have the opportunity to correct it immediately. Please feel free to contact me anytime at 315-761-0000 if you have any additional concerns.

We stayed here with another couple for 2 nights. We had to PREPAY upon reservation and by the time the rate was converted to Canadian dollars, the rate was $200 PER NIGHT. For this rate, we expect service and accommodations equal to the Marriott. We waited for an hour and a half for Carl to arrive to discuss the rooms, which were dismal. We couldn't get another hotel as we had already PAID for the rooms, and we had no cellphone that worked in the US to try another hotel. As others have said, although there is a 'kitchen' there is nothing to go with it, not even cutlery. This may work for the folks that live in this motel, but for not for weekenders. We had no idea there would be no maid service, so we didn't know to ask for it, not that the beds would have been made anyway. No phone in the room, so if you don't have a cell phone that works in the US, don't have an emergency, since there is no one around and no way to call. This is the first 'poor' review I have ever written and I feel badly as Carl is a nice fellow, and changed both our rooms to try to accommodate us, but the rates are ridiculous for this motel. And you shouldn't have to prepay, which maybe says it all !!

I am terribly sorry to hear that you had anything less than a positive experience. The satisfaction of each and every one of our guests is our first and foremost priority. If there is dissatisfaction of any type we encourage all guests to bring this to our attention immediately while here so that we can resolve it right away Our rates are competitive with the other lodging options in the Sylvan Beach resort area. When possible I often try to bump guests up to a larger room type that may happen to have a kitchenette in it whereas the original room type did not. The reason for bumping someone up is not for the stove but to give the guest a larger room. It is my impression that these guests had no intention of utilizing the stove as the room they originally reserved did not have one. We offer daily, weekly & monthly rates. Please feel free to contact me anytime at 315-761-0000 if you have any additional concerns.

The Inn is home to several permanent residents & that was fortunate for us because our phones didn't work but their's did (out of country) & Carl doesn't work 9 to 5 so he wasn't in when we arrived & he doesn't have staff. We waited in the parking lot for 1 1/2 hrs for him & our room keys. He mentioned that the same thing had happened to a couple from Germany the week before!

At the Oneida Lake Inn we take great pride in the satisfaction of each and every guest. We are a small family owned motel and unfortunately as much as we would like, we just are not able to man the office 24 hours a day 7 days a week. In the event we are not in the office or in the rooms cleaning the office phone forwards to our cell phones so we can always be reached for anything you may need. We are never more than a few minutes away. And Yes, you will need a cell phone that works in America! Unfortunately, the folks from Germany did not bring a cell phone that worked in America either! We offer daily, weekly and extended stay monthly rates that are competitive with the other motels/Inns located in the area. Please feel free to contact me during your stay should you have any questions and/or concerns. It is our goal that every guest enjoys their stay and departs completely satisfied. 315-761-0000
