Very friendly check-in, good parking. Our room was ok, door was warped or something allowing light in & turned out also, ants. Didn't realize it until late when going to bed, a few were crawling on the covers. Left too early to tell anybody in the office. I feel we got an older room behind a fence which blocked our view, the majority of their rooms looked much better.

The restaurant & chef Michael (who is the owner) is a hidden GEM! Beautiful ambiance in the restaurant & outside w/ a gas fire pit & tented outdoor seating that’s lovely! Our room was cozy & comfortable w/ a quaint outdoor covered front porch overlooking a golf course. Patty the housekeeper is excellent! Prime location, minutes from downtown Clayton; 12 minutes to Abay; 25 minutes to Cape Vincent. The Murphy’s

Really cute place! Love the outside patios and chairs! Was clean and the staff was friendly. I would stay here again in a heartbeat! My only small suggestion is that they have designated parking for the hotel guests. The restaurant on site is very popular and when we came back to our room after visiting the town, we struggled to find parking. Otherwise a little gem of a place! Thank you!!!
