Have stayed at the Falls Motel on average 5 to 6 times a year for the past four years. Mike and Brenda provide excellent service in a friendly, professionally way with a touch of family thrown in. Quiet, out-of-the way but very close to Watkins Glen. Mike and Brenda are especially accommodating with requests and are enthusiastic to let you...

This Motel is about a 1 1/2 miles outside of Watkins Glen. The little town it's located in, Montour Falls, is very quaint and we could walk to a local Bar called Sal's. We were able to find a waterfall on the way. The Motel also has a restaurant next door that serves American/Italian menu. The owner was very nice...

I enjoyed my stay at the Falls Motel. My husband and I took a long weekend. We stayed in the suite. The room was very clean and looked newly renovated. We had beautiful leather recliners, a fireplace, flat screen tv, king size bed and jacuzzi. The room also had a kitchenette. The management was very polite and helpful.

We stayed here for two days, the owner and staff were really friendly, and accommodating. Rooms were exceptionally clean, and the restaurant being walking distance was a great plus. Keep in mind that families here run on proper time and close at reasonable hours, in the event that you are used to 24 hour places.

A small, local owned motel, which features clean and adequate rooms. There are few frills but no real complaints - the area surrounding The Falls offers enough to do that you shouldn't have to spend much time in your room!! Be advised they do close for winter in November.

The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We arrived on a Monday at 900pm and were starving. Michael at the front desk called over to the adjacent restaurant to tell them to hold a table for us. Much appreciated. The rooms were extremely clean and kept.

Nothing fancy here. Clean rooms. Friendly owners, Fruit, real juice and coffee for breakfast. In the lower level rooms you will hear every step from above. Bonus is a very nice restaurant right next door.

I've stayed here many times over the years either on vacation or when attending driving school events at Watkins Glen with the BMW club. While not the fanciest place around the rates are reasonable, the staff is very nice and it is always well kept and clean.
