Pros: Our 2nd stay at the Overlook Mansion. It reminds me of staying in castles in England and Scotland.
Pros: Hard to say what I liked best: the breakfasts were incredible. I also loved the house, a gilded-era Upstate NY mansion.
Pros: The building and grounds are beautiful. The staff was more than accommodating and the breakfast was very nice. Everything was extremely clean and well appointed.
Cons: The shower head was short. I am 6'2' and the shower head was about chest level. The hot water was not steady.
We were greeted by Joseph the asst. innkeeper. He was very cordial and eager to please. He also gave us a great dinner recommendation in Little Falls. As for Jim the 'Omlet King' ---well he is a real character. He was very personable and also ready to provide anything you needed.
Pros: It was the closet I think I will ever get to the 'Downton Abbey ' experience. It was like rooming in a castle. Don't be fooled by the outside appearance as it could do with some sprucing up a bit. I still cannot believe how clean the floors were.
Cons: The wate pressue can be a little iffy when taking a shower.
This is a wonderful place to stay. Jim is an excellent innkeeper who cooks a great breakfast.
Pros: Qwerkiness, the style and setting. The welcoming staff.
Cons: No but it would be nice to have a comfortable sitting area in the reception area .
A place like no other - charm, character, history and beauty rolled into a delightful experience by a truly great intelligent and gracious team with care and competence! Jamie, Steve, Jim, Smitty, Sherry & Bellagio are magical. They convey a feeling of welcome that is hard to explain - from custom made breakfast by a talented chef to casual cocktails in the tavern. The mansion was lovingly and carefully restored by a solid four years of hard work - sitting on the huge wrap around porch is like sitting on top of the world - Little Falls looks like a fairy tale hamlet - soothing to the soul in it's peacefulness as it nestles in the valley below the aptly named Overlook Mansion. When the team restored the mansion they imbued it by their hard work with a feeling of pride and warmth that permeates every corner of this huge home. This is a destination not to be missed.
Pros: Absolutely spectacular. Service, service, service - a lost art in too many places - the team at the Overlook Mansion - Jamie, Steve, Jim, Sherry and Bellagio from the moment we arrived - from the best breakfast to the last evening cocktail wonderful!!
Cons: We couldn't stay longer - we already miss the grandeur and comfort of our room overlooking Little Falls and the thoughtful dining recommendations - one great unexpected experience after another!!
A great choice for a stay in Little Falls, Overlook Mansion features an airport shuttle. You can unwind with a drink at the bar/lounge, and free full breakfast is available daily. Room service and free WiFi are offered in all rooms.
Pros: The pillows, breakfast choices, and pool was open til 11pm.
Cons: Sound of shoveling snow outside window at 7am

Pros: The room was mostly clean (aside from spots on the towels), the bed was comfortable, room was quiet, and the water pressure was awesome.
Cons: When I showed up to check in, my reservation had no proof of payment through Kayak and there was some strange name on my account along with someone else's card # (I guess Kayak reserves under their own card and name), so I had to find my confirmation emails proving I was paid in full and sign a form to that effect. The staff at the Red Roof Inn were very nice, but Kayak's customer service line went unanswered.

Pros: Cost of room was about $54 w/ tax through site. Owner was a wonderful, nice gentleman. Location is right off Exit 31 ramp so you can't ask for better convenience.
Cons: Furniture, shower, dresser all desperately needed updates. I asked for a non-smoking room. The room itself was non-smoking but the bathroom reeked of smoke. I'm not sure if it was the vent or the room itself but it was overwhelming. The room I was in was joining to the room next door. The walls/door were so thin that I heard everything on the neighbor's TV and them laughing. Also the room above mine was apparently moving furniture all night as I kept hearing loud thuds. I have upstairs neighbors at home also, so I was kind of looking forward to NOT being woken up by loud thuds/banging on the floor...oh well.
Pros: Cheap, but you get what you pay for.
Cons: Checked in to this place around 6pm. As we walked up the stairs to our second floor room I noticed a smoke smell. As we walked down the hallway i recognized the smell as marijuana. The place is very old and run down. In dire need of a facelift. After entering the room and seeing stains on the furniture and floor we turned around and left to get some dinner. While out I stopped across the street at a Red Roof Inn and found a room. We went back to Scottish and got our stuff and left. Very shabby.

Pros: On a cross country road trip with my kids. I booked around me and it ended up being an hour in the other direction. They would not move is to a closer hotel or refund.
Cons: Very shady people hanging outside smoking and drinking. Called the front desks twice and no one did anything. The door lock would not work and the safety latch was broken off. The Ac was not blowing cold air and was very loud. The beds were unconfertalbe and the pillows where the smallest work out things ever. The tv only got 2 channels one was a local advertising and the other was not clear
Pros: Comfortable room, bottom floor. Heat was ON when we got in...thank you!!! Temperature outside= -5....
The room was clean, bathroom was clean, it was quiet all night.
Pros: Room was very nice,clean and neat. Employee was very nice at check-in,fixing a mistake I had made with booking
Cons: Breakfast leaves a lot to be desired,not much choice and very unimaginative. Could use more protein choices
Pros: Everything was clean looking and comfortable. Staff was friendly. However, I got several bad spider bites on my arms, neck and face that are now very itchy and swollen. Bed closer to window, room 220. I didn't tell the front desk in the morning, but thought I'd share after the review request email.
Cons: Spider bites, itch and swollen

Pros: It is an old boarding house, but each room had its own bathroom.
It was clean and the bed was just fine. The price was on the low end for the neighborhood. We got what we paid for. We needed a place to stay and it worked out just fine.
Cons: There was no lake in sight. It was more of a youth hostel type of place.
Pros: That it was not a chain-hotel? I like to support local businesses, but this place left a lot to be desired.
Cons: I knew that this place was going to be a bit rustic, but for the prices of other rooms in the area-- we were up for the adventure! I was travelling with my wife and in-laws-- we were spending the weekend doing Cooperstown.
First, I received a text message on my phone around 9:20pm telling me that I needed to check in by 10pm and also telling me to go to an address different than the one that I thought I had booked at. We were sent to a place that was NOT on the lake as advertised...and since when does someone get to tell me WHEN I need to check in?? This was nothing I had ever experienced before... We arrived about 9:45 (we were on our way already). Not sure what would have happened if we pulled in after 10. (we were the only people there that night).
Upon arrival, we were greeted by an elderly woman along with a rather scruffy, biker type looking guy smoking on the porch. She then had two younger girls escort us to our rooms. (Perhaps they were exchange students). The rooms were rustic just as expected, but worked.
We were never asked to sign anything, no one ever looked at my ID...it was a very twilight-zone experience. That being said, the beds were comfy, there was a continental breakfast, and the AC worked. We weren't looking for much more this particular weekend...We left by 9am and didn't come back until after 9pm every night.
I would not go back.
Cons: Because we changed rooms after our first night, I need to give two sets of ratings to question 2. For night 1, they're good, poor, poor, poor, mediocre and poor. For nights two and 3, they're good, good, mediocre, poor, good and poor.
We had a VERY disappointing stay at The Lake House Lodge. We made our reservation more than 3.5 months before our arrival date, but when we arrived, we were escorted to a separate building that I'll describe as a bunk house, more than a mile from the lodge and the lake. Our first-night room was small and cold with a tiny bathroom. There was no trash can, no wash cloths (though I scavenged the building and found some) and the TV was a 13" computer monitor (being a hockey fan, I wanted to watch the Stanley Cup playoff game, and doing so on that TV was totally unsatisfactory). In short, it was the worst accommodation I've ever experienced.
The next morning, the owner gave us our choice of rooms for our remaining two nights and we found a much better one. It was, however, still in the bunk house away from the lake, not the lodge. She also said that she'd give us dinner at the lodge to compensate for the night before and we had a nice dinner in the dining room overlooking the lake at sunset our last night.
Since we paid for the accommodations in advance and felt that being put in the bunk house was less than what we paid for (and with the free dinner only compensating us for the first night debacle), I e-mailed the owner on June 4 saying I thought a partial refund or a free night on a subsequent visit (the lodge would be a wonderful place to visit in autumn when the leaves are changing) would be appropriate compensation for being housed in the bunk house rather than the lake house for nights 2 & 3. I felt that if I'd gotten a satisfactory, good-faith response, I'd chalk it up to experience and consider myself a satisfied (albeit minimally) customer. As it turns out, though, I've gotten no response, so I remain a dissatisfied customer.
Lake House features a marina and a nightclub. You can grab a bite to eat at the restaurant or wind down at the end of the day with a drink from the bar/lounge. A rooftop terrace and a garden are other highlights, and rooms offer washers/dryers and living rooms.
Cons: I cant believe that it was so bad and lost the money that we paid up front I don't think you should charge a card until we get to our destination. we lost that money and had to travel further up the road to get a nice place at the Holiday Inn.
Pros: Nothing, it was disgusting. I didn't have high expectations - I am a musician and stay in $--- motels frequently. This one was way below acceptable.
Cons: - Bitten by bugs, two marks on my arm - Infested with scabies, ruined my vacation - never vacuumed, old food on the floor, food wrappers on the bed - three kinds of hair in the sink, male and female, hair all over the bathroom absolutelydisgusting
Pros: THE LADY IN THE FRONT DESK WAS SO NICE
Cons: I LOVE EVERYTHING
