Fredonia College tour

Pros: we liked it's location the most. the view
Cons: felt odd Sunday night, dining with only one other couple in the restaurant. the food was good. must be a quiet town, or was it because it was Sunday
Location: right next to Lake Erie, didn't get mush of a chance to experience the neighborhood, don't know what's around.
room was nice and comfortable. staff was helpful, and always smiling, very pleasant to see in the morning. right next to Lake Erie, no streets to cross. visited to tour Fredonia College. during our free breakfast, we discovered we weren't the only one's who stayed here for the college tour.

needs a major cleaning and updating

dirty, virtually everything metal is rusty, the sidewalks are not even shoveled. The second night I stayed the fire alarm went off 4 times between 11 and 12:30 AM to which the clerk said - It does that sometimes when the weather is bad.

Clarion Hotel, Dunkirk, NY Review

The Clarion Hotel has a wonderful view of lake Erie. Its restaurant is high quality and takes advantage of the view. The pool area indoors needs some upkeep. The outdoor pool was not open yet for the spring, but looked inviting.
