I chose this hotel for its proximity to Watkins Glen International, its price, and the favorable reviews on TripAdvisor. I was not disappointed. The rooms with double beds were spacious with a writing desk, table and chairs, DVD player (DVDs available at the front desk), refrigerator, microwave and ironing board. The bathroom was tiny, though. The room was also immaculately... More

We were really pleased with this Econo Lodge. Management and staff were very professional. Renovations and upgrades are excellent quality with more to come. They serve a much higher quality breakfast than a standard Econo Lodge requires. We would recommend this motel and would stay again ourselves. Many conveniences nearby as well as the regional airport.

We have stayed here over the years many times. The location is perfect. The new Management is FANTASTIC along with the staff. They are in the process of re-vamping everything so there are minor cosmetic defects here and there. None of which effects the function or comfort of your stay. The price is great. We do fabrication work putting in... More

This is a minimal "meets requirements" motel. The motel was not setup for "breakfast included" so part of the lobby has four tables with chairs but is crowded. The sun is in your eyes if you are on the wrong side of the table. The lobby, hallways and lighting are shabby. It needs a reset. The breakfast is the standard:... More

I stayed at the Econo Lodge last week, for a week and was given the chance to stay in 3 different rooms through out my stay ( this was entirely my own fault, as I kept adding nights last minute, on the go, when they were fully booked ). I was a bit nervous before my travel due to having... More

Let me start by saying this, all I wanted was a clean place to stay for a night. I did not need a 5 star hotel. When I am traveling I spend very little time in my hotel room so, a clean room is all I require. After reading through Trip Advisor reviews and seeing pictures I expected this hotel... More

We had a coupon for a discounted rate for the Econo Lodge in Elmira, NY. When we arrived, after traveling all day, we were told they would not honor the coupon because they "were almost full."
