We are thrilled to hear that you received “first class” service from our team. Thank you acknowledging their efforts and for sharing your experience on TripAdvisor. We will look forward to your next visit! Best Regards, Carolyn Guyer More

We planned a long weekend trip to the Finger Lakes, and booked this hotel almost 4 months ahead of time. At that time, the only choice of rooms that was left was the "mountain view" rooms. We really wanted to rate this hotel as a 5, but the "mountain view" was of the parking lot, a liquor store, and a... More

We were in Watkins Glen to take part in an event at WG International, as were several other guests of the hotel. Unfortunately we didn't get one of the rooms with the lake view, our windows looked over the parking lot instead. We quite liked the hotel nonetheless, and we'd be happy to go back if we traveled to WG... More

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

My husband and I stayed at the Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel for a week and could not have been happier. It is hands down the nicest hotel in the area. The hotel was very very clean and the staff was extremely friendly. The location cannot be beat. Sitting right on Lake Seneca the views are amazing. We ate breakfast at... 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).

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.
