We stayed here the first week of Sept for 2 nites. It was before a big race and after Labor day so the town seemed quiet. The hotel is very well kept. Very clean, lots of pillows and fresh bedding. The desk staff is very attentive. The bar service outside was great and luckily the weather was perfect. We had... More

We loved our first visit to this hotel and cannot wait to return. We shared a room with family and it was just the right size. We opted for the lake view and will certainly ask for it again. The beds are super comfy, the room is nicely decorated. the shower is amazing. We will be visiting this place yearly... More

We stayed at this place for two nights while exploring the finger lakes area. It is significantly more expensive than other alternatives in the area, but it was worth the splurge. The location is right at the Southern tip of Senecca Lake, with a terrific bar and restaurant on the grounds with indoor and outdoor seating. The rooms are very... More

We stayed here for three nights and enjoyed every night. Breakfast was great. Dinner was average. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Right on the Seneca Lake harbor and marina. Close to downtown. Walking distance to virtually everything but the WG International Race Track. Rooms are clean, bright, and very spacious. The bathroom is big enough to qualify for a... More

Beautiful location on south end of Seneca Lake in historic Watkins Glen, New York. Great harbor views. Some lakeside rooms have balconies. All rooms are very well appointed. Restaurant and bar both have patio seating. Very friendly staff and all are schooled in "guest are right and how can we help" attitude. Only downfall I can see is that the... More

We stayed here in early September while visiting family in the area. We were pleasantly surprised by the 1st class accommodations. The staff was friendly, attentive, and helpful. The hotel is on the south end of Seneca Lake with a great view of the lake. There are a number of restaurants within a few minutes walk of the hotel. We... More

We visited in September for a wedding and it was very nice. The hotel itself is a very nice hotel in a great location. The staff was nice and the food was good. But I do think the room and the food we had was all a little overpriced.

Sorry for the late review-it was a busy summer We stayed here for the July 4th long weekend. Right at the bottom of Seneca Lake, we used it as jumping point for a guided winery tour. The hotel itself was immaculate the rooms were very spacious. The lake view rooms were perfect for watching the sunset and the fireworks during... More
