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.

Stayed here for an overnight on a 4 day motorcycle ride. Front desk lady was very friendly and helpful. Room was your regular motel room size, but the appeal here is the extreme cleanliness and impeccable upkeep of the property. Located about 12 blocks from "downtown", it is still close enough to be practical and far enough to offer reasonable... More

Hubby and I were in town 2 nights for a wedding. The owner and his wife were polite and helpful. We had a pleasant stay. The room, bed and bathroom were clean and comfortable. Loved that the bed was firm and not mushy like some motels. We got a good night sleep. Coffee and a bite to eat in the... More

We were not expecting a whole lot from this place but we got great value and a pleasant stay. Our room was neat, clean, and comfortable. Excellent shower. Good "expanded continental" breakfast. We found the manager helpful and accommodating. There was some road noise but we weren't bothered by it. Recommended for a simple, clean place to stop on a... More

Reserved room over phone, quoted one rate, when we arrived charged more, no explanation, owner/desk clerk very curt. When we turned down the bedspread it had nasty stains on it. Towels also stained. When we complained to the owner/desk clerk, no apology, again very curt. Did replace the bedspread but no discount offered. We have stayed here before and originally... More

Good location for a wine tour base but the room was pretty dirty. Like disgustingly dirty. Uncovered stains on the box spring. Brown stains on the cover blanket and a dead bug in the lampshade. Make sure if you stay here you get drunk enough on your tasting to not care.
