Booked here on a last minute trip to see fall foliage, read the reviews so was prepared to not expect much. Although it definitely is showing its age it was clean and staff was friendly. Location is great for exploring what Watkins Glen has to offer. Our room rate averaged about $130 per night if you stayed 3 nights, so... More

Do not waste your time or money here . These rooms have indoor / outdoor carpeting , outdated dirty bathrooms . This hotel looks like it is from the 1960s . They might think it's clean . That is the scary part. The beds are worn out and sag in the middle evident when you walk in the room .... More

I was in the older 2 story area . Room was horrible . The pillows were thin and rock hard . This is the first hotel I ever had trouble sleeping. Would not go here if you want a comfortable room . There are many better choices.

All guests are welcome to check their rooms before registering. We ask all guests upon departing how their stay was in case there is something that needs fixing.. And, we would never make a guest stay in a horrible room. Guests love our heated indoor pool , free continental breakfast in our new cafe room off our new lobby. We... More

Everyone was very cordial. The room was spacious and comfortable. Very clean. It is right in the town, once you park your car you could walk anywhere. Very convenient to restaurants and a nice walk to Lake Seneca where you can sit and enjoy the scenery. It is especially nice at night with all the lights.

The place is a rip off. Paying top dollar for loud rooms with indoor/outdoor carpet. Rooms are out dated. Should have known better when I saw the building looks like it is going to fall in on itself. Front desk had no hospitality skills and were rude. SAVE YOUR MONEY!!! And go anywhere else.

After reading reviews I was nervous. We stayed in the Manor Brass room. The house was charming and very clean. Our room was nice and big with newly renovated bath. Walking distance to everything!! Highly recommended!! Will stay again. Wish bed was king bed but not a deal breaker. Free continental breakfast provided. Basic but good.

Completely separate and distinct from the motel. Historic former home of the person the Village was named after. Cozy and welcoming. Very limited availability. Well worth the cost. Centrally located. Just off the .main drag. Park off_street the entire Downtown is a brief walk. The first choice of this race fan!!!!!!!!

This motel is being remodeled, so that's nice. They do have a nice, clean, warm pool. Motel is located in town, so close to restaurants, etc. However, their breakfast doesn't begin until 8 AM which is too late for us - we usually get on the road by then. The desk clerk was semi-friendly, but another employee was very friendly... More

Great stay! We walked in on Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. Only a few rooms left. Small room but definitely clean and didn't need much more for a one night stay. 5-10 minute walk to Watkins Glen and Marina Grill. Didn't have to worry about parking at all. Indoor pool, continental breakfast, & wifi.

While I just gave it an average rating I will say that it has improved and continues to do so. The staff has almost always been good, with one exception. Staffer claimed they could not take cash to reserve a room only checks, the manager/owner quickly reeducated the desk clerk and all was well. This mostly a no frills locally... More
