Best in the area hands down. I and 2 girlfriends stayed for 2 nights during the wine festival. The staff was very kind and helpful. They held our bags so we could catch the shuttle to the festival before we checked in. After we got back they helped us get everything to the room, had an extra robe for our... More

My girlfriends and I were in town for the annual wine festival. We stayed in one of the harbors rooms, and they are just beautiful. Came with a mini fridge which worked great for dinner leftovers and wine! A beautiful view of the lake, and a nice huge patio to sit on outside! Will surely consider staying there again next... More

We stayed 3 nights in June at the Harbor House, myself with 2 teenage daughters and met a friend with her 2 daughters. From the reservations (when we asked for rooms across from each other, which was accomodated no problems) up to checkout the experience was outstanding. I travel frequently for business and leisure and this hotel was in the... More

The Harbor Hotel impressed us with its freshness and cleanliness and upscale appointments, including wood laminate flooring in our guest room, a very generously sized shower and bathroom, and a great bed and linens. It offered a beautiful view of Seneca Lake, and the staff and concierge were friendly and helpful. Arriving mid-afternoon, we were able to entertain ourselves for... More

This hotel was an excellent choice during our wine touring of the Finger Lakes. The rooms were clean, large, and very comfortable. The bathroom had a beautiful large glass and stone walk in shower with an abundance of complimentary toiletries. If you are lucky enough to get on the lake view side, the view is breathtaking. The only two drawbacks:... More

We have never stayed at a hotel that was this well maintained, cleaned and staffed - it was truly 5 star quality. The location was terrific, the rooms are very well appointed and designed and the...

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The rooms look new and fresh and we had a great view of the lake. Dinners served in the hotel dining room are carefully prepared and nicely presented. Hotel staff take special care to be helpful and friendly.

Although this was a lovely hotel with a beautiful view and decent restaurants, I was very aggravated to find that the hotel does not put their guests that are paying 200+ a night to stay there first. We came back from sightseeing both Saturday and Sunday to NO parking spaces. When we complained at the front desk on Saturday, we... More

Just celebrated our daughter's wedding at the Harbor Hotel - and everything was SPECTACULAR! The Banquet Manager, Carolyn was phenomenal - and her staff made sure evey detail was handled. The hotel rooms are beautifully appointed, and everyone at the hotel was friendly and knew exactly how to make everyone feel comfortable and welcomed.
