We just needed an overnight stop and had tried a few places before this one but no luck. Should have kept on going but there really is no other place nearby. Our room was okay but the walking traffic back and forth outside our door was a little disturbing. Our shower was totally missing a shower head. We were glad... More

This is an older style motel, maybe the 1970"s. It was clean. The shower head is below your head. It is just an old motel. It does have a view if you step out your door and look across the street at the lake. We were on the ground floor and I sat on an outside bench looking at the... More

For the money, meh.. the standard rate should be $70. I've stayed there three times and they never remember me and always try going higher on the rate and always have me fill out that stupid card of non-digital-age motels. But hey, the heat and a/c work, the cleanliness is adequate, the towels are like steel wool, the beds are... More

This is the worse motel I have ever visited, and not very cheap (90.00 US). I guess to be in the motel business there is no governing body or this place would be shut down. Unsuspecting travelers see beautiful Lake Champlain across the street and figure this may be cheap place to stop for the night. The room was dirty... More

Unfortunately we did not have an opportunity to read the reviews, or we would never have stayed there. We were travelling through Rouse Point and wanted to find an inexpensive room for the night. We paid $88 for the room and although it was directly across the street from beautiful Lake Champlain, the rooms are situated so there is no... More

Believe the reviews and don't stay here. It doesn't even deserve a one star rating. Disgusting!! If we hadn't been so tired we would have left but we should have anyway. We would have been better off to save the $80 and sleep in our vehicle. Mold in the bathroom, sticky vinyl floors by the sink area, stained bathroom floor,... More

It's been at least 4 or 5 years since I had the misfortune of staying at the Bates Motel (aka Anchorage). JAL's description of the owners (silence) and room is exactly what our experience was like 4-5 years ago!!! Although our room had the addition of the extremely strong odor of smoke. We were with a large group of cyclists... More

I should have trusted the reviews. But, I instead thought, can it really be that bad? And I didn't want to stay 20+ mins away, so we gave it a shot.

The good: Wifi worked great, decent TV selection, nice view of the lake. The bad: the ceiling light didn't work, waste basket wasn't clean from last visitor, frig and alarm clock weren't up and ready, the price was high at $70 plus tax for a room with no extras.

“Pray they rebuild and restore the place. It is gross from what i hear online. I have not been there since like the 90s after the new building was built. I was there once at the new place, but its shame thats gone now. The management sucks! Time for new owners!”
