“A pleasant hotel in walking distance of several good restaurants”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

Sackets Harbor is an attractive village on the banks of Lake Ontario, and this comfortable and welcoming hotel makes it easy to enjoy the scenery and the shops and restaurants. The staff are very helpful, even offering to print out a document for me for a very minimal price. We will be back.

My wife and I were guests at the hotel for two months, and we were treated and respected as royalty. The corner room, with a kitchen, overlooking Lake Ontario and Navy Point Marina was beautiful. The Historic Village of Sackets Harbor is worth the trip alone, but the very best part of the entire experience was the Owner, David Maxon, and staff. The dedicated team went the second mile to make this trip unforgettable for us. Thank you, our new friends, for all you did to make Ontario Place Hotel our home away from home. You are the best ever.

We came to share Thanksgiving with our son, a Capt with the 10th Mt.Division The weather was in the 20's and we hadn't stayed in Sackets before. The hotel was such a warm, restful part of our visit, the staff was very accommodating, the room and bed comfortable....we felt blessed to have such a cozy place so close to the great restaurants in town, we could walk to everything. Sackets is such a beautiful little town full of history,Ontario Place has history books and maps in the lobby, great coffee and nibblies. Its the perfect launch site for a wonderful visit. Thank you! We will surely be back.

Room Tip: We stayed in 209, facing the harbor. the bathroom was accessible for a wheelchair, and it was perfec...

The staff at this hotel is terrific -- every person we encountered was really nice to deal with and they all seemed to have very good senses of humor. The place itself is pretty bland and nothing to write home about. The jacuzzi tubs are not very effective but are very loud. The location is perfect for this town...close to everything there is to do. The price, I thought a bit high for what you get, but I'd stay there again if I was in Sackets.

Room Tip: The "harbor view" rooms are a bit misleading...at least ours was...it was more like a tiny...

had a wonderful stay at the Onterio. The bed was comfortable, the water was hot and the Hotel was quite. You can't beat the location. All the great little shops, great restaurants, and the battlefield all just a short walk away.

We stayed at the Penthouse. You get the entire top floor, it is very big like an apartment it has a kitchen, living room, dinning room with table, 2 bedrooms with king size beds. It had just been newly updated. It is definitely great for parties or families there was a built in speaker system that we were able to listen to music through out. There are 2 roof top decks and a Jacuzzi. The view was amazing. We had a fantastic time there. The only down side was they didn't have any extra blankets and pillows for the fold out couch and toiletries such as hand soap, shampoo, conditioner, ect... that you would find at any other hotel. And for as much as you are paying for that Penthouse that should be a must! Also it looks like the bathroom missed out on the update, but that was not even a big problem. We just had a great time and were in the center of everything you want to check out!

We are so sorry that the soap dispensers were not filled and the bar soap were not in place! You were the first people to use the Penthouse after the update... Please accept my sincere apology! Thank you for the great comments!

My fiancé and I had stayed here once before, but decided to come back to get away from the noise of Watertown when he returned from a 9 month deployment in Afghanistan. I called to make the reservations and asked about the cancellation policy in case I needed to switch the dates around, and the woman was so friendly and accommodating. We were able to make last minute changes (thanks, Army!) free of charge. The hotel is lovely and the rooms are large. He definitely appreciated the large jacuzzi tub. We've been in the same room both times, and there is never any noise from either outside or other rooms, although we knew there were other guests. The best part about this hotel is that you can walk to a number of restaurants and not have to get in a car at all, which was ideal. Perfect for a romantic getaway when a bed and breakfast really isn't your style. And it's still only about 15 minutes from Watertown if you need a change of pace or more restaurants or a movie theater. Will definitely be back again.

Room Tip: We have stayed in 212 both times we have stayed here (Corner room) and it's very spacious and yo...
