1. We have a Perfect, Central Location

To start, Lake Ontario Motel and Inn is only a 10 minute drive from the shore of the massive lake. You can easily go shore fishing on the beach at Olcott, or find a fishing charter in one of the many small towns on the lakeshore. There's also a boat launch in Olcott if you have your own watercraft.

Tonawanda Wildlife Management Area

However, if you've tried fishing on the lake with no luck, you still have other options. The Tonawanda Wildlife Management Area and Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge allow for some excellent fishing and are only a short drive southeast of Lake Ontario Motel. Prefer the river?

You can hook something big at Eighteenmile Creek, which is just a short walk from our inn. Basically, no matter how you want to fish, you have options here.

3. We have Affordable Rooms for All Fishing Groups

Another reason Lake Ontario makes for a perfect fishing trip is its affordability for what you get. While other fishing escapades may require you to spend more money or spend a night on the ground, the Lake Ontario Motel offers a cozy night's stay that won't leave a dent in your wallet.

For example, if you want to go fishing with your friends, you can book our Four-Single Bedrooms for $112 per night. That's only $28 per person per night. You could go on a fishing trip for days without worrying about spending your whole paycheck on a room you'll be too busy to enjoy.

Single bed rooms range from $72 - $81 per night, so even if you are on a solo trip, you won't be breaking the bank.

Amenities

On top of the affordability of our rooms, we also have a freezer so you can keep the fish you catch preserved during your stay. You can enjoy a complimentary breakfast depending on the season, and our parking lot can accommodate trailers, so you can have your boat nearby.

4. We are close to Sportfishing Events

Fishing is serious business on the Lake Ontario shores. Fishing Tournaments are held throughout the year, allowing you to test your angling acumen no matter the season.

While some of the popular ones include the Lake Ontario Tournament and the Greater Niagara Fishing & Outdoor Expo, the most popular one has to be the LOC Derby.

LOC Derby

The LOC Derby has a $10,000 grand prize for the person who catches the biggest fish, and several smaller prizes depending on the size and type of fish you catch. Submit your registration for the event above so you can show off your fishing prowess.

If you are serious about sportfishing, Lake Ontario goes far beyond casual fishing and allows you to be recognized. Our motel is a great place to stay during tournaments, as we are pretty close to the action and have a place to store your haul.
