I took the wife and kids to the Corning Museum of Glass and turned it into an overnight, fun-filled affair. The local places to stay in Corning seemed fine but I was looking for something a bit more. I extended my search results and stumbled across this hotel which had great reviews and was less than 30mins away; needless to... More

The hotel was much better than we anticipated. The room was as nice as any B&B we stayed at in the finger lakes region. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom and shower was great. The hotel had lots of amenities and was walking distance to town. We will stay there again!

We stayed for five nights over the Easter holiday. After days full of visiting family and friends, the hotel was a wonderful place to lay our weary heads. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The view of the lake is relaxing. The room was serviced promptly every day. The staff is pleasant and helpful. My children are 5 and 7,... More

I think what makes this hotel so enjoyable is its uniqueness. We stayed on a Thursday night in early March for a trip to the wineries and, after driving down the mountain from an afternoon of wine tasting, this place was a perfect ending to the day. Upon arrival we were upgraded to a Lake View room; the staff behind... More

This was not my first stay at the Harbor Hotel, so I knew it was top notch. We traveled to the area for a college visit. I offered my son several accomodation choices and he quickly chose the Harbor Hotel. Check in was quick. Liz, at the front desk, was polite, friendly, very helpful, and professional. The well appointed room... More

We went there for our 30th Anniversary in September. It was beautiful and at a great location. I was not used to all the pampering. I would definitely go back there again. I loved Watkins Glen and really enjoyed all the wineries around the lakes. The staff were very helpful in giving advice and directions about the wineries. The breakfast... More
