Upon booking and getting my confirmation email, I was given the cabin # we'd be in, and informed there was no official check in, just use the last 4 digits of your phone # used when booking as the pin on the door lock. Super easy and efficient. Great location. Close to restaurants and state park. 2 beds were perfect... More

Just perfect place! Got there pretty late and after a long drive this was everything you could ask for. Peaceful, clean, cozy and easy to find. A place I can easily recommend and where I would gladly go again!

A truly wonderful experience! I love this motel - small (8 rooms), quiet, and family owned. The view of the lake is indeed gorgeous. The rooms are large and spotless. They are equipped with flat screen TV's, small fridge, microwave, and coffee pot. The fridge was stocked with some snacks should you need them.There is a propane grill and a... More

I'm not sure what else I can say that hasn't already been said. A truly wondeful experience. Our room was spotless. Super friendly and caring owners. Great view. Super nice, friendly, personal touches like the personal note on the envelope for our receipt. Microwaves and a small refrigerator in each room. Modern, LCD TV. The fridge even comes stocked with...

After staying at several different motels over the past 12 years we found the gem of Watkins Glen. The view was indeed gorgeous but that is only part of it.

My wife and I decided to stay here for a couple of nights on our way up to Canada, all based on the incredibly positive reviews we read about the place. Driving up to it, we both agreed it was not a place we we'd have stayed at without fairly unanimous favorable feedback. It's hard to add anything to all... More
