Our family has stayed at Clark's Beach numerous years renting not only during the summer, but seasonally for the winter. All of the employees are fabulous! Ginny, Tiffany or Joanne always greet you with a smile, are very friendly, and accommodating to our needs. The rooms offered, are spacious (we've stayed in every type they have over the years) as well as clean, all public areas which we use (indoor pool, recreational and living areas) are always clean and well maintained. What I enjoy Most is when my family is snowmobiling I have a short easy walk to town, just up the road. With easy access to the local shops, movies, and restaurants. Your family will enjoy this place I recommend it to our family all the time.

My husband and I stayed with our two boys for one night on Dec 26, 08. We looked at the rooms on line, seemed very nice by the pictures. We contacted Clark's and talked to Ginny. She was very nice and welcomed us when we got there. As soon as we got into our room we were not at all impressed. The floor was very dirty and we wore our shoes the whole time that we were there. The room was so small that two of us had to sit while the other two moved around. We had asked to see a bigger room, and needless to say It wasn't any cleaner. Some of the games in the game room didn't work, but my son did enjoy the pool and playing ping pong. Hospitality or not we will not be staying there again, and we don't recommend it either. It was not worth the $120. a night we paid.

  • Liked — The owner of Clark's Ginny, she was very nice.
  • Disliked — The room was very very dirty!!

we stayed there for the week of fire school. The place was neat and clean. The people were great to deal with. No hassel.
they were very help full with our needs. I will be there again next year. Not a lot to say other than the people were great and it was a real nice place to stay. Grounds, building and rooms were neat and clean. Looking forward to going back. Jerry Kleehammer, Lima Fire Dept.

We spent from Thursday through Sunday at the hotel for the Old Forge Firefighters school weekend. It was the best. This is our second year there and we have already booked another four rooms for next years event. Ginny is the greatest and very accommodating.
I especially enjoyed the indoor pool and had such a good time just relaxing there. Had time for a swim and then coffee afterwards and no interruptions.
We have enjoyed the motel as I said for the past two years and find all the rooms comfortable. The cleaning staff are most accommodating and everything is neat.
It is especially nice that we are able to have rooms next to each other and can sit out on the chairs out front to enjoy each others company while just relaxing. Everything is within walking distance from the motel and we find that a plus.

I thought Clark's was great. The room was spacious, the indoor pool was nice, and the game room with ping pong table and pool table was a nice touch. The refrigerator was big and new and we had a screened in spacious porch. This was nice for the kids. They also have a sitting area with fireplace, free coffee and access to a microwave. One of the best things, you could literally view the lake from our bed. Like the motel setting. Parking is right in front of the door and carrying stuff in and out is not troublesome. Being the owner of upstateshopping.com, I travel alot and give reviews of hotels, motels and restaurants based on how I see them.
