This hotel holds true to its name - it most certainly is a gorgeous view! The room was clean and spacious and the bed was comfortable. There are also free snacks in the room for you to enjoy. Overall, it was a nice stay!

This is a great little motel in Watkins Glen, perfect if you are staying for a weekend to visit the wineries (like we did). I made my reservation online and ended up with the second-floor room, which is actually separate from the main motel and occupies the second floor of the office building. What great luck! Expecting a tiny room,... More

As others have mentioned, the first thing you notice is the lovely view overlooking the lake. There is a road in between, but the motel is high enough, that it can be overlooked and all the rooms (8 of them) have chairs out front, so you can just sit and relax. We only stayed a night here, but have no... More

The motel has 8 rooms but I would say it has been the best stay. The inside is clean and very well maintained and the front view from the rooms is of the beautiful finger lake. I booked it for a night but wanted to stay another night just because of the view. Stephanie was very kind and welcoming. I... More

Small motel but great view of Seneca Lake. Room was very clean and lots of room. Beds were very comfortable. Some snacks in the fridge. Great place to stay when doing the wine trail. Would stay here again. People very friendly.

Very clean. The tile in the bathroom was very well done. It's worthy of 5 stars with some very minor upgrades like more plush towels and pillows. It's got a beautiful view of the lake and you should walk the gorge when you visit. Only negative - it faces east and the sun comes up bright and early!!

There's no question about it - the view of Seneca Lake is panoramic and gorgeous! It was very relaxing just to sit outside and enjoy the vista. And the motel itself meets my most important criteria - it's spotlessly clean. Not fancy, but very comfortable. A nice touch are the complimentary snacks in the refrigerator. Just a few minutes outside... More

We have traveled extensively and this is one of the cleanest, most hospitable places we have stayed. Simple room, double bed, fridge, microwave, tv, free internet with view of the lake. A three minute drive to the entrance of the park entrance.

We were so nicely surprised by this motel. It was definitely properly named bc the view is spectacular!! The room was absolutely spotless. Everything was in perfect working order(air conditioning, shower, cable tv, etc). Stephanie is the best! She is so patient and friendly. We are definitely staying here again next year!!!

We stayed here for one evening while visiting Watkins Glen. The owner Stephanie was very pleasant and helpful. This is an older Motel which has been well maintained. The room, bed and pillows were all good. The Motel is located on a hill with a lovely view of Lake Seneca. It is situated within a easy drive of downtown Watkins... More
