My wife and I stayed here for our first visit to the Finger Lakes from Friday September 26, 2014 until Monday September 29, 2014. I’d like to start off by stating that I would not typically leave a negative review however; upon checking out, the representative at the front desk did not ask us how our stay was at their... More

We have made many day trips to Watkins Glen and had cocktails at the Harbor Hotel, but this was our first overnight stay. The hotel is very tastefully decorated (blues and sage green). The staff was extremely friendly. The room was beautiful. It had a mini frig, wine glasses and a cork screw which is great for all the Finger... More

This is one of the best hotels we have stayed at. We had a King Lakeview room that overlooked Lake Seneca. Beautiful view! The common areas of the hotel are very pretty, but the room was even better. I don't care for rugs in a hotel room. This room had a large tile entry way, and then engineered hardwood floors.... More

My wife and I stayed for two nights and enjoyed our stay at the hotel. It is very clean and the room is very nicely designed. Highly recommend upgrading to a room with a lake view, which was wonderful to view in the morning sitting in the chase couch at the window.

Lovely hotel in a picturesque setting. Beautiful lobby and friendly receptionists. Our room was large with comfortable bed, huge bathroom, and separate vanity that included mirror and place to sit. The tiled shower was enormous. Turn-down service with chocolates was included. For such luxury we found the rates to be very reasonable. We enjoyed dinner and breakfast in the dining... More

My wife and I visited Watkins Glen for a weekend for wine tours and site seeing. Everything about this hotel was excellent; service, rooms and the restaurant. For those that are price sensitive, it is expensive, but I think well worth it.

We recently stayed at the Glen Harbor and attended a wedding (September 6) there also. The service is excellent, the staff very polite and caring. Our room was on the fourth floor, when we walked in we had very little time before the wedding started. We looked around quickly and were pleasantly surprised at the accommodations. The walk-in tiled shower,... More

Thank you for taking the time to complete a review and for the wonderful "5-Star" rating. It sounds like you had a great time at the wedding! Although mother nature did not allow the bride and groom to have their ceremony on the patio their candlelight ceremony in the ballroom was beautiful. It is wonderful to hear that you received...
