Maintenance needed

2 out of 5
by from Wisconsin
Posted Nov 26, 2016
Pros: The staff was very pleasant and tried to make everything right.
Cons: Maintain the property.
Location: Beautiful site and nice facility.
The advertising blurb was inaccurate. It said there was wireless internet. It was for the most part unusable. Slow and would stop for a minute or more before it would come back on. The staff changed our room after a few days to try to improve things. The new room the internet was no better and was out completely for over 16 hours on the last day of our stay. It is very difficult to go to McDonalds in order to use the internet. The room they moved us to the TV went out daily and staff had to come and reset the receiver. The ad also said "pools". The outside pool was closed as expected but there was no other pool. The guest laundry comprised of only a coin op washer with no dryer. The staff was excellent and the rooms clean. The heat made so much noise that it had to be turned off in order to hear the TV. The TV might have been better if the closed caption had not been disabled. A great deal of maintenance would greatly improve the hotel. This evaluation could not be filled our until we returned home because the internet was so bad.

Time for a facelift

3 out of 5
by from Salisbury, NC
Posted Nov 14, 2016
Pros: . This is a hard question to answer, as the only thing that was worth mentioning is the staff. They were helpful and kind.
Cons: Our stay was okay. The food was okay, we needed extra coffee in the room and the deck had a hard time finding any. We have stayed here many times and they just aren't keeping it up. Most likely won't stay again. It seems like they build a nice hotel and did nothing to keep it up to date.
Location: This hotel is located on the Lake Erie and the outdoor views are wonderful, near the local dock where you can sit and enjoy nature in it's glory.

We stayed here during a particularly busy weekend in Dunkirk/Fredonia. We were ahead of schedule the day we checked in and called to see if we could arrive early. Wednesday were respectfully told that would not be possible but by 3pm there would be a room. Despite calling and having a reservation, our room was not ready when we arrived at 5pm. When we did get a room it was obviously not cleaned, as if housekeeping rushed to have the room available for us. The drawers had remaining clothes from previous guests and the garbage was not taken out. Otherwise, you can expect a typical budget hotel experience.

The service is excellent, room is average, and the attached restaurant, The Windjammer, is excellent. Quality and choice of food, and service is wonderful. I would go back to the restaurant anytime.

horrible hotel

1 out of 5
by from buchanan ny
Posted Sep 4, 2016
Pros: The view of the lake.
Cons: You need to update the rooms with everything. walls, painting, etc....
Location: The town is very nice. Quaint and clean. Got a feeling of a real community comes together to support the town.
We were visiting colleges... As soon as you walk in the room the floors were VERY uneven. Ceiling in bedroom and bathroom were patched up due to water damage. Yellow stains. The tub had black mold in spots. DO NOT ORDER room service. After traveling 7hrs on the road, did not want to get back in the car to get something to eat. Order room service. The women was sooooo rude, rolling her eyes complaining she had to go and get the rest of the food because it wouldn't fit on the tray. Only one more item she had to get. (The food was good). Two items were not even covered, would not eat them, waste of money. The staff are not even willing to engage in a conversation. Not friendly at all. I got a room with a view of the lake, very pretty. But, every morning there was a constant beeping noise of a truck backing up at 5 in the morning. Not to mention you can hear the hotel guests in the rooms next to ours all the time. When they went to the bathroom to their conversations. Walls very thin. Have stayed in a lot of hotels this summer visiting colleges, the rooms were a lot more sound proof then this hotel.

Bartender felt he was being disturbed by our presence because he had to get up from drinking himself to make our drinks and said oh I guess they're going to make me work. As a bar owner and bartender we were quite offended.

Nice hotel

5 out of 5
by from Montour Falls, NY
Posted Oct 12, 2015
Pros: The hotel was easy to get to and very clean. The hot breakfast was nice. Our room was up to date and comfortable.
Location: We found that the beach up the road a few miles had lots of beach glass for the girls to collect. With shopping and restaurants close by.
We enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay here again. The only thing that was wrong is there is no mini fridges in the room and the indoor pool was closed for repair.

Dear Guest, Thank you for staying with us and writing a great review. It is great to hear you had such an enjoyable stay with us. Unfortunately the indoor pool is closed for good, we do offer a seasonal outdoor pool in the summer months. We look forward to seeing you next time you are in the area!

Stayed here because the hotel we booked called and told us they were overbooked so this was the closest alternative. The staff was nice but hotel is older and needs some upgrades. Skip the restaurant unless you're really hungry.
