We stayed 2 nights (this was our second stay at this hotel). The hotel is conveniently located. It is just a short walk to a quaint section of Penn Yan. There are a few shops, restaurants and bars. And if you like to have a drink with your meal and do not want to drive, we were told by the locals that the cab fare was only $4, because there are a lot of young police officers. We had walked because it was nice outside (roughly 700 paces).
This time I opted for the larger room plus amenities. Our room was nice, clean and large (the presidential suite). The jetted tub would have been great had it worked. The wall paper in the bathroom was peeling at the seams a little, I think it wasn't installed well ( minor issue). The shower curtain rod was sagging and the curtain would not stay closed. Notified the desk in the morning and the shower curtain rod was fixed but not the jetted tub. The fireplace was a disappointment- I thought it would have been a gas fireplace because the one in the lobby was gas. No, this was a cheap electric fireplace with a light to simulate flames. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was good, scrambled eggs,bacon, homefries, 3 kinds of cereal, make your own waffles or pancakes, bagels, bread, muffins and danish, fruit and yogurt, juice, (coffee and tea 24hrs). A downfall is the breakfast area is small, so if the hotel is full there will be a wait. We did not use the pool or fitness area. There is a nice outdoor sitting area in front of the hotel surrounding a small water feature. The hotel staff were very pleasant. Next time I will save my money and just get the regular king sized room. This room just wasn't worth the extra money. less
