There are few options for hotels in the Ogdensburg area however we have been staying at the Stone Fence for years whenever we come to visit family. The staff is always very helpful and friendly. On our recent trip, our experience was not what we have been accustomed to in the past. We stayed in a townhouse. Generally speaking, it... More

The police were there when I arrived. It was'nt the greatest place I ever stayed in and I travel a lot. I was concerned about the cops being there when I arrived. I'm always looking for a hotel that is clean and offers great value. However this was a disappointment.

The police are often in the area as well as the border patrol, making sure all is safe as we are close to the border, they are looking out for our wellfare. This should be seen as our guests are being looked after for their safety. More

Well kept hotel, we have been coming here for years but it has been updated in past 5 years. All units have river views and there is a dock and outdoor rec area. Nice buffet breakfast too. Location is right on the main east-west road but some units are near the river.

The room was very clean and homey. The pine cathedral ceilings added to the charm. Front desk was extremely accommodating and full breakfast the next morning. Hotel on shores of st Lawrence. Terrific place to stay if you head to ogdensburg

If your are staying in Ogdensburg, there aren't a lot of choices. In my opinion, the Stone Fence Inn is the best. It has a great location right on the St. Lawrence River with water access, but no boat slip that we saw. The breakfast was really nice. Not 5 star hotel nice, but better than the Holiday Inn Express... More

I will have to say that we were forced to book here because every hotel in Ontario was booked. I read the reviews and it sounded like a nice place. Our room was on the back side of the complex with no view of the river. It was small but the worst part was how dark the room was. The... More

Stayed here with our granddaughters while my husband attended meetings in Massena, NY. The room was outdated but clean. Beds were comfortable. The vanity in the bathroom was literally 3 inches above my knees! There was a gazebo on the river. It looked great until we actually walked to it. There were spiderwebs with spiders everywhere!

What a view! Our high school hockey team and coaches stayed for 3 nights and were treated very well. Terrific location and the boys had a great time. Rooms in the back building were cabin-like and large. Able to accommodate several of the boys very well. Comfortable. They ordered pizza delivery one night.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Clean & Comfortable Rooms Conveniently located near Remington Art Museum also - Ottawa, Canada - Lake Placid - Thousand Island - Boldt & Singer Castle - Mohawk Casino Situated on the beautiful St. Lawrence River, this 13 acre, Three Diamond Triple AAA rated resort Motel and CENTURY MANOR HOUSE (new in 2004) offers guests a wide selection of upscale, clean, comfortable accomodations with scenic balcony rooms, family units, water front and Jacuzzi rooms plus two-room suites. As our Guest, all the amenities, services and facilities you are likely to need for a restful night or an extended vacation have been carefully considered. The Stonefence Resort Motel experienced a fire to the registration building in February of 2014. Many of the rooms underwent some measure of damage with reconstruction and refurbishing completed in late September. After 8 years of retirement, Bruce and Bonnie LaRose, the original owners, builders and innkeepers for over 20 years along with their grandson, David, have returned to be the newest owners of the Stonefence Resort Motel. "We found that we missed the people and the business more than we had thought," Mr. LaRose said. "Many of our customers became like family, staying with us whenever they were in the area." "We became a destination for many and hope to restore our facilities and trust to where it once again exceeds our customers' expectations as a Three Diamond Triple AAA Property. Our grandson, David, is a people person. He has a nice way with our guests. People like David and we are confident he will be a good innkeeper. ... more   less
