My boyfriend and I got a fabulous deal at the Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel right after Christmas so we decided to go and spend four days there hanging out in New York's beautiful wine country. The hotel was fantastic. It was not only beautiful and comfortable, but I found it to be very luxurious. They were complementary robes and matching... More

Excellent location. Super clean. Very friendly staff. Right on one of the Finger Lakes, Seneca. Try to get a room facing the lake. You will be very satisfied with the accommodations. The hotel does not offer a continental breakfast but do not let this deter you. This is a place you will want to return to.

We booked one night on Christmas Day knowing the hotel was only offering a very limited bar menu for about 2 hours that evening. Still, we thought with the full moon on the lake it would make a beautiful , quiet and relaxing overnight get away. Wow were we right ! Upon arrival we were upgraded to an awesome suite... More

My husband and I stayed here this weekend. This hotel is beautiful and there wasn't one staff member who didn't go out of their way to smile, wish us a happy holiday, or provide us perfect service during our entire stay. The food in the restaurant was excellent and it's manager was such a sweetheart! Highly recommend a stay here.... More

The Harbor Hotel is absolutely beautiful. The rooms are big and very comfortable. The view of Seneca Lake is to die for. The staff is very friendly and outgoing. The Hotel's bar and restaurant serve great drinks and even better food. I can't say enough about this place. I would highly recommend staying here.
