“Alexandria Bay's 1st choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013

Dennis & Debbie went out of there way to make our stay the best Alexandria bay has to offer.
Clean, comfortable rooms & a great dock to keep the boat at. Calm waters at the docks, even on windy days, keeps the boat safe. Our "ONLY" choice when visiting the Thousand Islands!

Room Tip: Book in advance as they are the best value in town!

We were fortunate enough to stumble upon the Otter Creek Inn in Alexandria Bay through the luck of a last minute cancellation there. This place is perfectly located within easy and enjoyable walking distance to the bustle of Alexandria Bay - in town - yet just far enough removed that we were able to enjoy peaceful evenings sitting by the water's edge, watching the boaters and the fishermen while relaxing in the pleasant surroundings. WIth a view to the west, we saw colorful sunsets right from the inn's private dock. Our room was clean as clean can be, well outfitted with comfortable beds, plenty of towels, a TV (not that we had time to watch anything, with all there is to see and do in the area) and a small fridge to keep our beverages cool. The innkeepers were a delight, very friendly, attentive and helpful - they offered great dining and activity recommendations which we followed up on with no regrets. The room price was fair and reasonable. We will most certainly stay at the Otter Creek Inn the next time we venture to the 1000 Islands.

I HIGHLY recommend Otter Creek Inn Me. LOVE the place!
After a very LONG day of driving through Canada, a Canadian boarder attendant (on the Canadian side), recommended my husband & I try & find a place for the night in Alexandria Bay. Tired & road weary, we checked out a couple of places before we actually blindly, stumbled upon Otter Creek Inn. Dennis (owner & desk clerk) greeted us with smiles & told me I could check out both of the last 2 rooms available before we decided if we wanted to stay. The first room I checked out was very clean & spacious & perfect! (I am very fussy about cleanliness & comfort). Because we have never heard about Alexandria Bay, we knew nothing about the area. We intended to stay for the night & move on in the morning. We followed Dennis's recommendation for dinner, "Dock of the Bay" where the prices were reasonable, the food great & atmosphere relaxing & comfortable. We decided we would take the next day & explore the Bay upon Dennis's recommendation & take Uncle Sam's 2 country tour boat cruise of the 1000 islands of the St Lawrence River. We had a fabulous enjoyable day filled with great memories.
I highly recommend Otter Creek Inn for your next stay. Dennis & his lovely wife Deb were warm, welcoming & accommodating. The area was a mixture of tourist & neighborhood businesses. We were never disappointed in anything we encountered during our stay. As a matter of fact, we decided we would like to go back & explore the area more & make Otter Creek Inn our vacationing home.

This mid-summer trip was my third time visiting the Otter Creek Inn in Alexandria Bay. Every time, we have left pleased with our stay. The inn is easily accessible off of Routes 81 and 12, with excellent signage guiding you through Alex Bay. Even with our boat in tow, navigating to the hotel has always been a breeze. They have a boat launch connected to the parking lot, we launch our boat while we check in! There is ample private dockage located on the hotel property as well, well-kept and well-lit with power outlets for larger cruisers. The docks and inn are in a protected bay, but only a a few hundred yards from the main channel of the St. Lawrence. This is a fantastic feature, as many Alex Bay hotels have dockage well inland, requiring a long idle just to hit open water.

The inn itself is everything you'd want in a small hotel. The rooms are large and feature all the amenities you need for your stay. The housekeeping staff always ensures that there are fresh towels and clean linens in your room. Coupling that with the exceptional rates and the close proximity (walking distance) to the downtown area makes choosing this hotel a no-brainer!

I have already made my booking to return in three weeks! You won't find a better deal for a hotel in Alex Bay. Give Dennis and Debbie's Otter Creek Inn a try, you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent. I prefer first floor, simply for ease of access.

In July we decided to stay at Otter creek it was just wonderful. Everyone is so friendly even the cleaning people. It was like home away from home all the people there were very friendly and our age. We walked to every place in the town no driving at all, nice location. The owner was nice even gave us a corkscrew to use. We had so much fun there and met alot of people.
The rooms were very clean and the help was there at our beck and call. The fishing was great!!!
I couldn't believe how nice the atmosphere was, so happy !

This is a fine choice if you're staying in Alex Bay. Everything about it is good--clean, quiet, centrally located. You can come by boat, or bring a boat to launch. I particularly liked Dennis, the very friendly owner--he has a sardonic wit that plays well with New Yorkers like us, even though he's originally from the West Coast. The cleaning crew is also quite friendly--they all speak English, and make you feel welcome.

We visit Alex Bay around 4 times a season. We always stay at the Otter Creek Inn.
The location is great, the rooms are clean & we are always treated great by Dennis & Debbie.
We would highly recommend this motel for a stay if in the area.
