I've been to several 5-star & 4-star hotels throughout the years and this by far is one of the best I've ever stayed at. The staff is very friendly & helpful. The rooms are very clean & spacious. The hotel itself is maintained impeccably. They have a coffee station on each floor which is much better than the single serve... More

We stay at this hotel several times a year and always enjoy our stay. The rooms are big and beautiful. The bed is oh so comfy and everything is clean and well kept. The walk in shower is nice and roomy. Lake view rooms have a gorgeous view of the lake and surrounding hills. We are still not crazy about... More

In September 2014, we traveled for our first visit to the 1000 Islands and stayed at the new 1000 Island Harbor Hotel in Clayton, NY which is a beautiful hotel owned by the Hart Hotel Group. We departed Clayton, NY and drove southwest towards the Finger Lake Region in New York State. We stopped in Skaneatliss, NY a charming town... More

Traveled to Watkins Glen for a girls wine getaway and we shared a room here. Absolutely beautiful! Friendly staff at check in, housekeeping and bar staff. The room was spacious spotless with comfy beds and robes for all 3 of us. We had a room with a balcony facing the lake and it was the only way to go. Restaurants... More

After getting engaged this past fall in Watkins Glen, we knew we wanted to have our wedding there. Everyone we met in town was incredibly warm and friendly. We went back this weekend to plan our wedding and were met with the same delightful charm with one glaring exception. As we were touring B&Bs and hotels we decided to check... More

Stopped here after a long day of sight seeing throughout the area. The front desk clerk was friendly and efficient. We opted for a lake view and were glad we did. The view was amazing. I travel quite a bit on business and I have to say, this may very well be the nicest hotel I have ever stayed at.... More

The decor at this hotel was beautiful and it was conveniently located for our anniversary wine & cheese excursion. We received a friendly welcome from the staff as soon as we walked in the door. Our room was very clean and comfortable (both temperature and bed). While the wood-like flooring was attractive, it made for occasional noise from the room... More

What a gem! We stayed for the deck the halls wine event and we are sure glad we did. We played with the idea of a cheaper hotel, but the Harbor was located right in the center of all the wineries and made it a excellent choice. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very spacious easily accommodating 3 couples. We... More
