I will never book at the knickerbocker on the lake especially during COVID. This hotel accused me of having a party so they kicked me,my boyfriend and his mom out and took $200.00 from me that was supposed to be towards incidentals. I decorated the suite and people came to DROP off gifts and leave and they did exactly that. Upon check in their was a disclosure that if the hotel SUSPECTED a party then you would be fined $100, I signed it. AGAIN their was no party BUT friends dropped off gifts, got a plate and left. The disclosure never mentioned being kicked out and taking money from my account. Their was NO DAMAGE OR MESS TO CLEAN UP. I called Larry the manager and he has not sent my contract over, he replied to my review stating that he emailed me but he NEVER DID because he knows he is going wrong!!! I will continue to write my reviews until justice is served, I have left voicemails and now filed a dispute with BBB because I don’t want this to happen to anyone else. When booking these hotels I warn you that due to COVID you need to be careful so you don’t end up like me...paying for something that I shouldn’t . Also to add if this were a party why would they take $200 and not the $100 out....BEWARE…
Having spent 2 months plus at this hotel during Covid-19, I can emphatically state that I was very satisfied with the room accommodations and size. The entire hotel is cleaned multiple times a day for the Covid virus. All hotel staff are masked. This hotel has a great location that is walking distance to the Lake, parks and downtown. If you need a little transportation assistance, the free light rail "The Hoop" is 2 blocks away. The staff of Jackie, Karina and AJ are friendly and knowledgeable. The entire team is led by a great general Manager Larry Robe. I am not sure why others have rated them poorly but I only can imagine it is the rater's issue not staff. I will return to the Knickerbocker on The Lake. John from California
The room we booked was not the room we saw online. The description was not accurate and on top of it it was dirty. The staff was not helpful and very rude. I canceled the reservation and they still charged me. The women at the desk charged my credit card extra charges on top of the actual reservation of the room. I’ll be calling the Better Business Bereau. Terrible!
We requested a 2 bedroom queen size room and the place was bigger than an apartment, very comfortable, neat and clean. That suite has 2 separate bedrooms with 2 bathrooms, full equiped kitchen, big living room with fireplace, dining room and even an extra office room with desk and chair,washer & dryer, plenty of lighting from Windows facing the Lake. What a nice relaxing place to stay, even in Pandemia we got daily cleaning service and front desk was very pleasant. Their Restaurant is also amazing. We can't wait to comeback again. We are also deeply grateful for the first responders special discount rate. Definitely beyond our expectations.
After reading some of the negative reviews we almost took a pass. So glad we didn’t! Nice location, walk to the lake and public beaches or walk to downtown. The “room” was an apartment with full kitchen and dinning area and large living room. Great little restaurant attached with outdoor dining and the kitchen stays open till 11:30. Will definitely be back. It is dated but that’s the charm. Parking was not a problem. Parked easily on the street for free. Paid parking was available but we took the cheep route.
