4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

There is a clear dichotomy of hotels in this area. Either you pay an arm and a leg for the new built ones, or you can pay a reasonable price for a smaller but renovated one. We chose the latter. Cons – All rooms open to the parking lot, you have an actual key to keep track of rather than... More

Room was clean but beds terrible. We had to take room with 2 double beds and beds so worn my wife slept in one and I the other. There were no knobs on the head control, carpet tack sticking through carpet at bath door and patched carpet under window in room. I had stayed here several years ago but conditions... More

Nice quiet place to stay, with amazing views. A bit dated, but very clean room. All rooms have balcony which make it very nice. Short drive to watkins glen, easy to get to all the wineries, would definitely stay again.

If you want to experience a place from the 60's this is it. The place has character. REMEMBER, The Glen Motor Inn has so much history, much of it racing, remember the movie Grand Prix. It would be at home in that movie. The lobby has many racing photos. Think of any great movie from the 60's and this place... More

$140 for a lake view seem a nice price point until paired with a room straight out of the 50's, including the musty smell. This property is tired, I mean really tired. Original fixtures...original bath rooms...urgh. If nostalgia is your thing and you desire to see how folks road tripped 50 years ago, this is your chance. The free "breakfast"... More

Pros: View of the lake. Free parking Cons: Musty stale smelling room with dated bedding and zero decor. Bathroom door that didn't close properly. Horrible breakfast - quite possibly the worst coffee I've ever had. Everything on plastic, even though the owners were sitting there drinking out of actual mugs. Overall - grossly overpriced. Complacency of location epitomised.

We were here for the Vintage Grand Prix Festival weekend. The property is well situated and does have spectacular views of Lake Seneca from every room ! The rooms are spacious. We had a King room. Shower pressure was excellent. The linens (bed spread and decorative pillows) had the smell of B.O. and really bothered my wife. The bed itself... More

I always return every few years and always is AWESOME!! The food, rooms, views, staff and things to do are always great! I enjoy seeing and staying in rooms that famous or powerful people of the past have been. THANK YOU, for the Paul Newman room. I see the owners have put in a lot of work and money into... More

My husband and I spent two nights at the Glen Motor Inn this past weekend. We were supposed to stay at our Camper at WGI, but it was closed unexpectedly so we quickly had to find accommodations. They were able to squeeze us into a full weekend, though we were only able to get a smoking room. We do not... More
