It was my pleasure to be able to stay at the Riveredge Resort in Alexandria Bay this weekend. The only unfortunate part of the visit was leaving. It’s obvious that the physical plant is being well maintained for the most part. While there is some wear and tear, it is not a gating issue. The location of this resort could not be in a more perfect spot, easy to access, within walking distance to town; right on a bay in the St. Lawrence River. The building is a stepped back design to allow each balcony to overlook the magnificent river. The privately managed facility looks fresh, was clean and had a gracious resort feel. The staff was welcoming and very pleasant although it seems that some of the restaurant staff is new and is not working efficiently, but it’s early in the season. What they lacked in coordination they made up with being pleasant, hopefully they will get the kinks worked out before the real busy season.
As far as amenities they have an indoor and outdoor pool and hot tub, outdoor food and beverage area, well manicured grounds, boat slips with power and water, a dining room overlooking the river including outdoor deck dining area, a high end fourth floor restaurant overlooking the river and good conference and meeting capabilities. The hotel is completely spinklered with smoke detectors for safety. The rooms are a touch dated but clean and maintained with a balcony overlooking the river. One note is the A/C units are more quiet than most. Bathrooms have been updated, a bit small but clean and acceptable. The only note is that the room furniture is again clean but a bit worn, no refrigerator or microwaves, but most rooms have newer flat screen TVs. The restaurant food is very good and I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
All things considered for a resort where the busy season is from July 4th to Labor Day this is a keeper and I would not hesitate to return again. Overall I would rate this as one of the better resort hotels I have visited because of the location, what else is available in the area and given the pleasant staff and overall condition of the facility. There were no gating issues and would highly recommend a stay at the Riveredge Resort, especially just off season, because I am sure they are jammed during the summer season. Love the place.
