I agree with many of the reviews already posted. We had a wonderful stay. It could very well be the cleanest hotel I've ever stayed at. It is beautifully appointed--both the rooms and the public areas. The staff is friendly and go out of their way to be helpful. We will definitely be back.

This hotel does everything right! It is conveniently located for visiting the Seneca Wine Trail and Watkins Glen State Park. If you are a racing fan, it is also great for the racing season. The rooms are very comfortable. Ours (King bed) was very roomy and very bright. It was clean and had great views of the lake. It has... More

We visited this hotel for our first wedding anniversary midweek towards the end of April. We had reserved a King Lakeview and told them it was our anniversary. When we arrived we got a complimentary upgrade to the Commodore Suite and a chilled bottle of champagne waiting in our room as well as early check-in. The staff was exceptional. The... More

We stayed for an anniversary trip in. This place is exactly like their website shows. Our room was very pretty and extremely nice. The location is great if your want to visit the wineries located all around the lake. Restaurant was a little pricey but comparable to other hotels. The food was very good. I would also say it would... More

My boyfriend and I were looking for a relaxing weekend getaway and got just what we wanted. It's a new hotel with excellent interior design, great service and a gorgeous view of the lake.The location was perfect--its sits right at the foot of the lake so make sure to get a room with a waterfront view. It's also just a... More

I absolutely love it here. Just anxious every time we plan a trip. Relaxing in the hot tub, a drink at the bar, outside on the patio, and then finally the bed! OMG, I slept great! Friendly spot. Within walking distance to some great shopping. And let's not forget some great wine tasting! I never want to leave. Coffee and... More

We made an overnight trip to the wineries and wanted a convenient, nice place to stay. Since we aren't really B&B types, this place seemed a good option. It was also recommended by a friend. After an afternoon of wine tasting, we checked in before dinner time. Beautiful location right on Seneca Lake. Rooms are well appointed, comfortable and clean.... More

This definitely deserves 5 stars. It is an impressive hotel in a beautiful location directly on the lake. There was a slight mix up with the type of room we had reserved. The front desk quickly made the adjustments and even upgraded us to a room with a balcony, not just the lake view. The room was beautifully appointed and... More

We loved this hotel! It was very nice and all the staff were very accommodating. We didn't encounter one single staff that didn't greet us and they usually asked if we needed anything. We were very impressed with the staff and service. We loved the view and the turn down service. We ate breakfast there all three mornings of our... More
