New review posted on TripAdvisor today!

Check out our newest review from TripAdvisor posted today! “The cabin was absolutely gorgeous! It was so peaceful and the view from the screened in porch was beautiful. The cost really wasn’t very much more than a room inside the hotel. Having the kitchen allowed us to stay in and cook and just spend time together. It was the perfect getaway for my husband and I!” 5/5

I am proud to know Terrance. He works hard and laughs loud. He also has what is referred to as a “service heart” . Many who work in hospitality do. It’s why we do this kind of work. We strive to provide comfort to those who need. It’s a fact that volunteer work keeps a body healthy. I’m not sure of the science behind it . I’m confident that the MOTIVATION behind it is driven by the fact we all need purposes in our lives. Terrance has started a group called Bless The Homeless. They will be meeting here in […]

GM needed for Brookpointe Inn

As of November 1st, I will be stepping away from the management position. This has been the hardest job I have ever had , this has also been the work choice that I have loved the most. I know it confuses me too.lol. I think being a GM for a hotel is more like a life style than it is a career. I hope that the next GM falls in love with this contrary property as much as I have.

Celebrate Syracuse!

I give a lot of tours of this unique property I work from. We are locate on 30 acres of wooded property . There are trails winding around and through out. We have a zip line experience for all sizes of kids, an outdoor gaming area called family cove .We are in a town well known for its lakes, and Brookpointe is only a half a mile from the highway that takes you straight through Syracuse. You may say I am showing favoritism? you would be right. I always end the tour by stating this fact. This hotel never stands […]

I don’t have a snappy blog title for the following update :(

AM I HATE HATE HATE being the guy that has to update all regarding pool maintenance. I need you all to know though, the pool boiler needs serviced. The error message stated roll out switch is opened. I have the service request in —I really don’t anticipate any one coming out today . We here at the desk will keep the pool open, it will not be at the 89 degrees we all find so enjoyable and relaxing, right now it sits at about 83 degrees. I am sorry for the inconvenience. Kari
