Stayed for a weekend of winery tours. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Breakfast is offered in the lobby area, very limited seating and offering. But adequate for a quick continental breakfast. Convenient to wineries and restaurants.

Excellent home-run inn in Watkins Glen area and close to a lot of restaurants and only a few blocks away from the lake and Watkins Glen State Park. The breakfast is terrific, here you have fresh fruits, mlik, coffee and tea!

Management is rude and unfriendly did not make us feel welcome. Also was charged extra for a third person even though I book a room with two queen size beds. Lastly hotel is extremely overpriced for what it is. I will not stay here again, can find a better nicer hotel for the price.

As the name suggests, the Budget Inn offers basic, no-frills lodging. The rooms are not especially large, furniture is unimaginative, and the layout is old-school motel. But everything was spotlessly clean, the front-desk clerk was genuinely friendly, and the possibility to park right in front of your room is welcome when you have heavy bags. They are located between the...

In need of serious updating. Dirty, nasty, with spiderwebs in the windowsills and a gross shower curtain. Owner makes you pay upon check in. Where was the breakfast buffet that was supposed to there? Lobby/office is locked and you need to ring a doorbell and wait outside till the owner comes down. If it wasn't for the beautiful park this...

I was pleased with my stay as it met my needs perfectly. Low price, clean, spacious enough, and centrally located in Watkins Glen for my needs. No frills, for sure. No counter space in bathroom and there weren't plush towels or anything. But, our room was clean and comfortable. My room had a fridge, but not all rooms do, so...

Very outdated, terrible water pressure, not enough towels in the room for a couple and the AC was very old and loud. Owner was nice but a $125 a night was way too much. If it was like $75 for the night the rating may have been better. The only reason I did not give this place one star is...

Everything you want in a quick hotel to stay overnight for a wine trail event. Two beds sleep 4, a table w/2 chairs, fridge, microwave, and tv. Perfect for a place to sleep. Not fancy, but clean and comfortable.

We arrived in the evening of St Patrick's Day, checked in and was escorted to our room by the co-owner Bill. He made sure the heat was on and we knew how to use the tv remote and was very cordial. There was a microwave, refrigerator and regular toiletries in the room. Despite being a bit dark in the room,...

“Our room was facing the parking lot and the main road going into town. Consider this if you are a light sleeper. I did not find it a problem since the traffic became light after dinner time.”
