Stayed here 2 nights while sightseeing. Very basic hotel. Plenty of hot water and the room we stayed had a mini refrigerator, which was a plus. If you are looking for just a room great price for value.

Located in a quiet area...the view across the street not so great....but the rooms are clean and well-cared for. The bathroom was sparkling clean. We enjoyed our stay here...management was very attentive to our needs

My husband and I stayed here mid Sept for 2 nites; it was our second time staying here. The room was clean and quiet and the price was right! It met all our needs after hiking and wine tasting. Mike is informative about the area. Short walk to the falls and to town. Will definitely return. Thank you Mike and... More

Spent a Saturday here on a last minute trip and I was pleased with the motel. The rooms are large and spacious with a nice flat screen TV. The Jacuzzi tub is just a regular size tub with the Jacuzzi feature so I'm not sure if it's worth the extra charge. Everything was clean and the owner is a nice... More

So happy we found this place. The owners are so very nice and accommodating. The rooms are very clean. It was a great location too--outside of Watkins Glen and it was nice and quiet. They had coffee, danishes and fruit in the morning. Really nice little gem!

Hotel is situated on a slight hill against a rocky bluff in this scenic area of NY, and offers immaculate and extremely spacious rooms for an incredible price. The rooms are on two levels, street-side, and up the hill across from office. This is a non-smoking and pet-free motel. Yeah! Mike in the office is so pleasant and helpful, as... More

Great location, off the main road in Montour Falls, minutes away from Watkins Glen and Seneca Lake wine trail. A very basic hotel, but everything was clean and in good repair, no cracks, chips, dirt or mold.

Good things: very clean, modern, up-dated, quiet in the back where we were, very close to Watkins Glen, very close to Montour Falls, friendly staff, away from the noise of downtown Watkins Glen Negatives:our promised breakfast turned out to be a pre-packaged danish, fruit, and coffee on a ledge in the office with no place to eat it, minimal towels,...

Stayed for two nights to attend a wedding nearby and to do some touring in the area. The motel was very reasonably priced given the height of the tourist season. It was also very close to area attractions such as the Watkins Glen race track, state park, Seneca Lake and many wineries, yet away from the congestion of downtown Watkins... More
