Very nice hotel!! A little on the pricey end but worth it for the winter rates. The view of the lake is gorgeous and the hotel is very clean and the staff is very friendly. Loved the coffee and tea stations outside the elevators on each floor. Definitely would go back again.

We stayed at the Harbor Hotel over Valentine's Day weekend - we got a reduced rate for Sunday night, which was great. The hotel was nice in every way, but not luxurious. The rooms had hardwood floors and were tastefully decorated. They were comfortable and spacious. The view of Seneca Lake was fantastic as well. The Blue Pointe Grill had... More

I felt this hotel was worth the winter rates. The room is nice, but not what I would call luxurious. The high season rates are not justified, so we will not return to this hotel in the high season, but may consider staying in the low season again. I liked the hardwood floors which are much cleaner than carpet. The... More

Very nice hotel, clean, great location but I think it's a little expensive for what you get. They don't offer any breakfast to guest and only have a little coffee bar set up by the elevators... With the amount I spent they should offer a free breakfast... Other than that no complaints. Hotel was full when we stayed and except... More

This hotel is situated at the southern tip of Seneca Lake, the largest and deepest of New York's Finger Lakes. We had a room with a lovely view overlooking the lake and the snowy harbor. Check-in at reception was smooth and friendly. The room was beautiful. It was spacious, clean and light, furnished in white-painted wood. Everything looked new and... More

For the second year in a row, my wife and I came to Watkins Glen for a quick post-Christmas wine weekend. We booked a lake view room and stayed December 26th-28th. It is a great location for visiting the Seneca Lake wineries as we were able to spend one day on the west side of the lake and the second... More

Stayed here for Seneca lake wine trail/deck the halls event in November. Beautiful hotel, beautiful and nice sized room. Stayed in water view room- view was beautiful! the part of this hotel that stands out was definitely the cleaning services. Each night robes and slippers were laid out for us, chocolates on our pillows, and everything impeccably clean. I have... More

Everything about the hotel was as nice as could be - room was clean and everything was new. We only stayed one night and unfortunately I woke up almost every hour to the mini fridge overheating. Finally at 4am I moved the entire night stand and just unplugged the whole lot. After that there was no issue, and I'm sure... More
