We find your comments to be a misguided. We are located many miles from the power plants and they are not in the line of vision from our hotel guest rooms. Our rooms have fantastic views of beautiful Lake Ontario, the Oswego Lighthouse, and the Oswego River. Our guests rave about our superb location and amazing views and our complimentary hot breakfast buffet is 2nd to none in the industry! Our hotel features a full service, state of the art health club, indoor pool, jacuzzi, steam room, and sauna. We are home to Alex’s on the Water - located on the Oswego River and offering outdoor and indoor dining and a brand new marina with WIFI, cable, water, and power — dockside dining at its best! The City of Oswego is rich in history, tourist attractions, and academia to include SUNY Oswego, Historic Fort Ontario, the H. Lee White Maritime Museum, the Save Haven Museum, the famous Oswego Speedway, and world class fishing, to name a few. Again - we feel your view of our hotel and our community are misguided - I am sure there are other accommodations in the area that would better suit your budget.

Outstanding view
