Came upon the Skaneateles Inn on 20 by chance driving through the Finger Lakes Region. Very friendly, room was very comfortable, clean, and nicely decorated. We were minutes from downtown Skaneateles. Great stay ! Will definitely be back :-)

Old style motel just over the county line. This was a fun stay, great location. Room was comfortable and the owners/staff extremely nice and super attentive! Oh, and reasonably-priced for the Finger Lakes region. Enjoy your stay!

Booked two night stay for a wedding we were attending nearby. The owner left the room open for us but also offered to wait until we arrived after business hours to check us in. We stayed in room 21 it isn't attached to the main building. It was nicely decorated and very clean. It had a king size bed my...

It was a pleasure having all of you that attended the wedding. I am hoping with all the rain we had the last 2 days, it is going to take care of that sulfur smell of water in the seasonal building. That building is on a separate well and when we had the bad drought this summer it hit a...

The Finger Lakes region is a lovely place to be and this motel fits right in with the old fashioned theme of the region. The motel has comfortable rooms. Our two double beds were very nice and the room was clean and spacious enough. The bathroom was fine: everything worked well. Because it is old-school, you can pull right up...

So sorry I missed responding to your kind comments. Dreaming of those sunny days from this summer. We had 3 inches of rain today. And although we need it badly - just hard to get it all at once. Hope to see you again next summer! Thank you again! Sue Dove

CLEAN, CLEAN room for an overnight stay. Just what weary travelers need to rest and relax. Friendly, helpful staff. Just outside of center ~ very beautiful area. Room is basic, no frills. Outside pool was clean and perfect for a quick dip to cool off.

Loved this Inn. It is carefully decorated and updated. Our stay was so comfortable and the price for this immaculate room was very reasonable. Loved this area. A hidden gem. Stayed Memorial Day Weekend and the price was still right!

We stayed here for a family wedding. The motel is conveniently located between auburn and the downtown of Skaneateles. First contact with the owner was while booking over the phone. She was extremely friendly, and accommodating to place our family in adjacent rooms. The rooms are decorated of years past BUT are well kept, therefore it is a charming place!...

This motel is retro, in the process of updating, but very clean and the owner who is also at the front desk is extremely pleasant and accommodating. The pool is beautifully updated and well kept. Rooms have everything you need and fantastic pillows. Again, very clean despite some older fixtures. I've been in plenty of more modern hotels that were...

If I hadn't booked this before I arrived, I would have driven right past. This is an old style motor inn. Looks can be deceiving. Walk into the lobby and you are treated by the warm and helpful staff. The rooms are older, but spotless. Even the swimming pool area, albeit small, is extremely clean and well maintained. They deserve...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a nice review for us. It is greatly appreciated. I wish the pool area was larger too. The pool is big - a 24' x 48' pool and 3-11 feet deep (that's 33,000 gallons of water!!), but the sitting areas are somewhat limited. we have 4 lounge chairs. 4 cushioned...
