The hotel is fairly new which is readily apparent. The service staff was very efficient. The rooms were clean and spacious. I loved the bathrooms as they were large unlike most hotel bathrooms. The pool and spa tub were a blessing after the cold days. The hotel staff easily remedied any concerns we had throughout our stay.

There's lots to love about this property, starting with a perfect location at the end of Seneca Lake, overlooking the yacht club and harbor. And, the hotel is within walking distance of everything in town, except the race track. The rooms are nicely decorated and beds are comfy. If you can, opt for a room on the lake side with...

Do not be turned off by the smell when you enter the lobby it is from the indoor pool and spa which is located right off the lobby. Bad location but that is the only negative.
