I booked the room for my daughter who was getting into town very late. Owner allowed for me to pay for the room over the phone and made arrangements so my daughter could get the room key after hours. My daughter said the room was clean. Her only criticism was that the bathroom was cold, but she was overall pleased... More

My wife and I stayed at this motel for two nights as we were visiting our granddaughter. Nothing dancing and elegant but clean nevertheless. A bit pricey for the time of year we went there. The first night we realized they had not left any towels for us to shower (only on small size face cloth). The remedy the situation... More

I made reservations a week ago, and was quoted a price for two nites at $60 per nite, but when we got there the other day, they doubled the price to $120 per nite. This class of hotel is not worth $120 per nite, more like $65 per nite. It's very small, and has no features. Worse of all, all... More

We spent one night here while roaming around the area. Property was clean and so were the rooms. There is a fairly new Tops across the street that has a very nice deli. A well stocked package store was next to the Tops. There is also a family restaurant a very short walk up the road. We didn't personally try... More

It was a toss up between Budget and another hotel for a quick getaway in Watkins Glen. Based on my telephone conversation with the Budget front desk alone, I declined to book there. Curt attitude, heavy accent, almost unintelligable, 2 word answers, smoking only rooms, then a rapid-fire phone number followed by "call my cousin next store - he has... More

There is nothing distinctive about this property but the rooms are clean and the owners are pleasant. They offer a limited continental breakfast. We could not get Wi-Fi in our room, but could get it in the office. TV included HBO. There was a fridge in the room. Watkins Glen is a little town. This hotel is just fine for... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, we booked 2 Queen bdrm, extra person charged $10/day which is reasonable. Our room has microwaves & fridge, which we don't need it actually. Hair Dryer is installed in the washroom. The shower stall is pretty new and clean. The parking lot is newly paved, lots of beautiful flower baskets hanging in front of... More

We stayed one night while in Watkins Glen. Nellie at the front desk (maybe the owner) was very friendly and helpful. Our room was small, but very clean. The bathroom was very nice, apparently recently updated. There was no fridge or micro in our room. Our traveling companions did have a fridge and micro in their room. There are hair... More

We stayed for one night when we found ourselves in town a day early. It was a pleasant surprise. The room was clean. They had Internet service and a little breakfast. They did not have refrigerators but they did have plenty of ice. The locations is very good, an easy walk into town and a few nice restaurants.
