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

We stayed at the Falls Motel for 3 nights in July. Our room was not fancy, but very clean and beds were comfortable. Enjoyed having a fridge in the room. Air cond unit worked well. The entire motel seemed very well maintained inside and out. The management and staff were very friendly and attentive. A peaceful place to stay. We... More

Stayed here for two nights while we went to a retirement party in Montour Falls. The manager Mike was awesome. He told me places to go and see and how to get there. He knew my name the minutes I walked in the office. Every morning when I went to get a muffin and a juice he would great me... More

Stayed here for one night. It was very quiet. Nice and clean as well. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. There was a small continental breakfast included that was just enough to get us on the road where we could stop somewhere for something substantial. Restaurant next door is fantastic and not far from the Glen.

Stayed here three nights during an event at the race track. The rooms are good sized and clean. Thea area is away from any major roads and quiet. Air conditioning worked well but cycled the fan on and off with no setting for on all the time which woke me a few times the first night. The usual value hotel... More

My husband booked the room not intending for me to go too. He was going to Watkins Glen Raceway and his buddy wasn't able to make it so I ended up on the trip. The motel was very basic. Clean room, wobbly toilet, slight model in bathroom, expensive restaurant open for dinner, no other amenities. Not much to do in... More
