We spent two nights here while dropping our daughter off at college. It is the epitome of 1970s Holiday inn. Parking on Saturday was awful as the hotel was packed and Sunday was totally empty. Outdoor pool was closed and the indoor community pool was crowded and messy. Last time I stay at this one.

My wife and I wanted a hotel that was nearby both Seneca Lake and Watkins Glen State Park. We stayed at this property for three nights.

In my opinion, I think this hotel is a good hotel to stop in for a night. There really isn't anything around anyway. We stopped here on our way to Ithaca, NY for a night's rest. The breakfast is pretty cheap and pretty decent. There isn't much parking so prepare for a trek from your car to your room. It... More

This hotel is ideally located for the family we are trying to visit, the breakfast is as good as any local restaurant could be.

The Holiday Inn Elmira Riverview has very well maintained and clean common areas, banquet halls, and reception area. In fact-it is actually quite well designed and decorated. There are plenty of amenities for such a small hotel including an on-site restaurant, pool and gym area. This is actually my second time staying at this particular hotel, and the first time... More
