Great place to stay for our one night, two day trip! Clean and neat rooms and grounds. Polite, pleasant and helpful owners. Nice steak & Italian restaurant right next door. Harvest Cafe diner in the quaint downtown area served a great breakfast. Good experiences all around.

Stayed for two nights in July. We enjoyed our stay, the rooms are nice & clean, decent size. Friendly staff. Good parking and our room was quiet. It suited our needs for a place to sleep. Wifi was fairly good. Good location for exploring Watkins Glen and other areas of the Finger Lakes. Nice walk into Montour falls.

An extremely clean, well-appointed room in a small, very quiet motel. The owner seems very focused on making sure guests have a good experience here. He listened to what I was hoping for during my visit (primarily very quiet) and placed me in a room in the upper back, where I was able to watch deer, pick berries, and admire... More

We stumbled on to this hotel at the last minute on our way to The Gorge at Watkins Glen. The staff was very friendly and helpful. When we asked if they had rooms available for that night he said yes and was even willing to show us the room before booking. We ate at the restaurant next door and the... More

I've stayed here many times ever since it was completely remodeled. After a few years and a change in ownership I'm happy to report nothing has changed. Rooms are clean, spacious and convenient to all finger lakes attraction. Owner is very accommodating. It's not on the waterfront, the views aren't the best but its the people you're with that counts.

My husband and I stayed at Falls Motel, Montour Falls NY on Saturday March 28, 2015. From the first time I spoke to the owner/manager, on the phone, the experience was a very pleasant one. He offered to call me and let me know when the room was ready if it ready before the 3:00 pm check in time. And... More

If you need a clean, affordable place to spend the night, this is fine. The bed was ok. Our room had a small refrigerator. The spaces for parking aren't very big if you are parking in the front, facing the road. There is WiFi.

We looked for a place near Watkins Glen last-minute. Mike returned calls to me as rooms became available. Luckily, it worked out perfectly as someone cancelled their whole weekend reservation. Place is clean, adequate for your average middle-class couple, and Mike and his wife were so welcoming! If you're use to 5-star, upperclass accomodations, book something else in the $400... More

This is a very basic motel in a good way. Just what you need for a base when touring the Wineries at the Finger Lakes. The motel was very well kept, we had an upper level unit and had no problems at all. The room was very clean, had a little refrigerator and TV seemed recently remodeled. We would stay... More

On past visits to Watkins Glen, we've stayed in nicer places. But during track weekends we spend very little time in the room, so it's silly to spend hundreds for one night when we could pay the same for an entire weekend at like The Falls. (That's my partner's argument anyway.) The Falls is on a quiet street between the... More
