and we hope to come back! I found the hotel based on reviews on trip advisor and most of them were "spot on"! Gorgeous hotel that is situated in a very quaint town and incredibly clean and comfortable. I would've liked to be on the water side of the hotel but we enjoyed the view instead from the bar/restaurant. Staff... More

Another wonderful visit to a local hotel for a mini break from winter! I enjoy the ambiance and character and cleanliness of this hotel. And the hotel's hot buys are the added bonus. This time my daughter asked to join my granddaughter and I.... So we shared...lol! She loved the window seat and view.

My daughter and I visited Watkins Glen Harbor to tour a college in the area. This hotel was such a lovely surprise. The hotel is nearly brand new yet manages to look historical. The very nautical them color are restful and charming. The two beds were extremely comfortable and loaded with fluffy down pillows. The "his and hers robes" were... More

I had the opportunity to stay at the Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel for three nights while in town on business. After a long drive I arrived to be greeted by a wonderful staff member at the desk. When she found that I was involved with a group that had a special rate she changed my reservation to that rate structure.... More

The hotel was a really good experience. It's the best hotel within miles. It sits on Seneca Lake and has great views for those who choose a balcony room. The staff was really good. We used the hotel as a base for our 3 day wine tasting and it was a great location. The restaurant is good not great but... More

I have traveled to Watkins Glen for business on several occasions over the last six months and it doesn't get any better than Harbor Hotel in Watkins. The service is impeccable upon arrival as you are greeted by the serviceable front desk who help get your stay going. From there the room is seriously top tier as not only is... More

From the comfort and cleanliness of the rooms to the staff friendliness to the access to a decent array of food and beverages right... More

Just completed a 2 night stay at this hotel. Rooms were very nicely decorated. Chose a Village side room for the price but was sorry I did as the view of the harbor was lovely. The staff was wonderful. Attentive without being intrusive. We ate at the hotel restaurant and had a great meal. The only thing that was a... More
