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

Went to this hotel on a recommendation from a family member. What a great place! Everything was fantastic! Took the "Date Night Package". All of the staff were accommodating and friendly. The Room was perfect in everyway! Wish we would have spent two nights. Dinner was very tasty and the waitress was outstanding! Would go back in a heartbeat!

We are somewhat local, living within an hour of Watkins Glen, and have eaten meals here before. It's a pricey place to stay, and we only did so based on great last minute deal, butit was worth the wait. We... More

Took a long weekend in Watkins Glen, staying at the Harbor Hotel. First, great customer service just to get booked. Wanted a 3 night stay paying for 2 nights, but the Friday of the weekend we wanted to book was totally sold out with a special event.
