The motel sits just up from the lake and has a tremendous view. There's a balcony porch perfect for relaxing and watching the boats. On the other side of the room, the front door opens onto the parking area. From the standpoint of amenities, the room was about average, but spotless and everything worked. The bed was comfortable. The was...

Very average motel, yet very highly priced. Management is clearly trying to squeeze as much money out of this place as you can. Cheapest possible materials have been used to finish and furnish the rooms. Your nightly stay apparently only entitles you to a breakfast muffin or danish, but not both as the sign says. Terrible coffee. Staff was just...

the room was clean but the water pressure in the shower was very bad. and the floor in the bathroom was peeling up. it was nice staying beside the lake and wakening up beside it. check in was easy and so was checking out.

This Inn is situated across from Seneca Lake, and the view was great! It was lovely to sit on our shared deck and watch the boats on the water, the sunset, and see how brightly the sun shined on the water in the morning. There was significant construction going on, which we didn't know when booking the Inn. The room...

Stayed for a "Glen" race weekend. As mentioned in previous reviews, construction is incomplete but does not interfere with the stay or experience. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The view enhances the stay. The room was clean, basic with a large flat screen TV and the bath room is functional but small. Being boaters we enjoyed the newly...

We really enjoyed our one night stay here. Great location basically right on the lake, close to Watkins Glen state park, Montour falls, and the catharine valley trail. It looked as if there was some construction going on, but nothing that affected our stay. Room was big, clean, and with shared deck. The staff was very friendly, tiki bar included....

We are from Boston. We arrived at the marina looking forward to spending the day out on the lake with four others who live in the area. We were told that there was no boat available because they accidentally overbooked. Our 'reservation' was for noon. The option they came up with for ruining our day was to rebook for the...

$10 for a rum and coke! in the middle of nowhere and nothing going on, that price is ridiculous. Don't waste your time here there are so many great experiences waiting for you in the Watkins glen area.

This is our third stay here so obviously we like it. It's an older hotel that has some wear and tear, but very clean. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Beautiful view from the shared balcony. The Tiki bar is great (except for yesterday when two guests were peeing off of the roof onto the sidewalk below). All in all...

The rooms are clean, roomy and all have a nice big shared porch with overviews of Seneca Lake. Nothing fancy and under ongoing renovations. The staff is very helpful. Coffee available gratis in the motel office. We didn't use it but there is a dockside tiki bar across the street that they have too.
