Good things: very clean, modern, up-dated, quiet in the back where we were, very close to Watkins Glen, very close to Montour Falls, friendly staff, away from the noise of downtown Watkins Glen Negatives:our promised breakfast turned out to be a pre-packaged danish, fruit, and coffee on a ledge in the office with no place to eat it, minimal towels,...

My husband and I planned a trip to the area on late notice when all the other bed & breakfasts were full. We found this place thru trip-advisor and saw all the good reviews. THANK YOU ... those reviews are totally right. This place was a gem. A basic, nothing fancy, clean, small town inexpensive motel with free wifi, refrigerator...

Stayed for two nights to attend a wedding nearby and to do some touring in the area. The motel was very reasonably priced given the height of the tourist season. It was also very close to area attractions such as the Watkins Glen race track, state park, Seneca Lake and many wineries, yet away from the congestion of downtown Watkins...

Great place to stay for our one night, two day trip! Clean and neat rooms and grounds. Polite, pleasant and helpful owners. Nice steak & Italian restaurant right next door. Harvest Cafe diner in the quaint downtown area served a great breakfast. Good experiences all around.

Stayed for two nights in July. We enjoyed our stay, the rooms are nice & clean, decent size. Friendly staff. Good parking and our room was quiet. It suited our needs for a place to sleep. Wifi was fairly good. Good location for exploring Watkins Glen and other areas of the Finger Lakes. Nice walk into Montour falls.

An extremely clean, well-appointed room in a small, very quiet motel. The owner seems very focused on making sure guests have a good experience here. He listened to what I was hoping for during my visit (primarily very quiet) and placed me in a room in the upper back, where I was able to watch deer, pick berries, and admire...

We stumbled on to this hotel at the last minute on our way to The Gorge at Watkins Glen. The staff was very friendly and helpful. When we asked if they had rooms available for that night he said yes and was even willing to show us the room before booking. We ate at the restaurant next door and the...

I've stayed here many times ever since it was completely remodeled. After a few years and a change in ownership I'm happy to report nothing has changed. Rooms are clean, spacious and convenient to all finger lakes attraction. Owner is very accommodating. It's not on the waterfront, the views aren't the best but its the people you're with that counts.

My husband and I stayed at Falls Motel, Montour Falls NY on Saturday March 28, 2015. From the first time I spoke to the owner/manager, on the phone, the experience was a very pleasant one. He offered to call me and let me know when the room was ready if it ready before the 3:00 pm check in time. And...

If you need a clean, affordable place to spend the night, this is fine. The bed was ok. Our room had a small refrigerator. The spaces for parking aren't very big if you are parking in the front, facing the road. There is WiFi.
