This motel worked great for our family of four. Yes, it was dated and nothing fancy but it was also clean and the employees were friendly, informative and helpful. Breakfast was the usual continental, but we were grateful it was available to get us going and out the door. Pool was wonderful after a 5 hour drive! We would definately...

My wife and I were in town for her brother's wedding and stayed for 3 nights. The view was spectacular, room was extremely clean, and staff were excellent! The place is a bit dated, but worth every penny if you're not looking for a 4 star hotel. 3 minutes from from downtown Watkins Glen and 15-20 minutes to just about...

Couldn't fault it.. The extra cot was a bit saggy but mum seemed to enjoy it so that was fine. Awesome view. Clean and tidy. Breakfast is basic but it got us on the road and that's all you need from a motor inn. Cheers guys.

We went to Glen Motor Inn as a group of four couples. The group came from Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New York. Making the reservations was easy, and they put all of our rooms next to each other, so it was easy for us. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Our rooms had balconies overlooking Seneca Lake, and the view is...

Great view...accommodation was less than adequate based on the cost. BTW no hairdryers. Parking was dangerous especially for motorcycles. Owners would not allow us to park the bikes on the top level. Would not stay here again.

This is the place to watch a sunset and sunrise! Huge pool with a million dollar view from room and pool. Excellent hiking and a lots of wineries very close by. Bare bones on the room side, but you will be on the balcony, at the pool, or in the breakfast room anyway,,,

Thank you for your kind post. We are happy you enjoyed your stay. We truly are a nostalgic motel with basic accommodations but your are right ....the view is unmatched in the Finger Lakes. We like to encourage our guests to sit on their balcony, relax, and watch the lake go bye......its good medicine! Hope to see you again, Nancy...

We arrived in the Finger Lakes area for a short visit on a Saturday and couldn't find any available rooms. We called the inn and the very nice owner happened to have one. The place is very old and worn but I couldn't find a piece of dirt or bug anywhere and I looked! We had a great view of...

Treated like family loved staying in this aged home. Every time in town we stay there. Lovely furnishings aged in style. Often think what it took to build such a place. Want to find other things that were built in that era

The Glen Motor Inn is a very nice place to stay while your in Watkins Glen. The room is very clean, close to the Glen and the BEST part is the view of Seneca Lake. You have a balcony with a fabulous view of Seneca Lake. You can enjoy a bottle or 2 of wine while you take in the...

Although this motel is old and needs updating, it was clean, comfortable, and every staff member was just so nice! Stunning view of Seneca Lake. Nice little continental breakfast was included--got us on our way quickly each day.
