Fabulous 8.6 From 114 reviews

Hope Lake Lodge & Indoor Waterpark, Cortland
Room was not ready at 4 to check in. Room had grease spots on counters and chair seats were sticky. Pool was only open until 8 and you pay lots of money for the water park pass. This was our fifth year and probably last as service and quality has declined. The rooms should be available earlier for use of kitchen etc. While there is lots to do everything is expensive and package exclusions and closures are frustrating.

Nice place, horrible food.
The lodge was nice and what you would expect. Very nice views and a good kitchen to work with. That being said, we arrived late with a baby so we opted to have the restaurant bring us our food to the room. We ordered more than we could eat to have leftovers for lunch the next day. The food was by far the worst we had ever had at a restaurant!!! Microwaved thin quesadilla with mostly canned ingredients inside... Chicken special was essentially butter on soggy noodles with a fried piece of soggy chicken... The salad wasn't dressed, the pizza had good crust but the toppings were very bad... And lastly the chocolate cake was dry, and looked (and tasted) like a Dunkin hiens boxed cake made by my six year old self.... Considering it was my birthday dinner it was incredibly disappointing. Needless to say we had a lot of leftovers... All of which we threw out. So enjoy the hotel, but stay clear from the restaurant!!

Worst vacation ever
The water park was sold out. It was a wasted trip. We wanted the water park and they were sold out. She have told us before we booked the room. Never again.

Very Good8.0
Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Little restaurant and bar in the lobby. Room was nice, but they could use better mattresses and better quality sheets. Overall a nice facility.
