Described as "clean and unpretentious " the rustic cabin lived up to its billing. We came in late on a non--race weekend and the super low $56 rate and restaurant/bar on property caught our attention. We turned in for the night but had a really well prepared and inexpensive breakfast. I'm an omelette snob and it was perfectly prepared. We... More

Check in and check out was quick and easy. 2 couples staying in the new cabins at back of property. Cabin was more than we expected! Clean, simple, well furnished, plenty of room for the 4 of us, 2 bedrooms with queen beds in each(which were comfortable). AC. Perfectly located near entrance of Watkins Glen Park. Enjoyed playing cards, finger... More

We go to Watkins Glen yearly - group of friends, for a weekend getaway. We have abandoned the A frames, sadly, because of the stairs, but the new cabins are lovely and a great deal. The breakfast was tasty and ample.

We stopped here for 2 nights in the 4-bedroomed lodge. Very rustic but OK and well priced. The site is ideal, just at the entrance to the State Park and we loved the walk up the Glen plus the great outdoor pool - no charges for anything if you walk in from Seneca Lodge. The Lodge provided good value, wholesome... More

Let me start with Gloria she should NEVER be in the customer service, she's rude and obnoxious and If the family knows any better to get her out of anything to do with customers. Maybe cleaning the cabins would be a better job for her. My family was looking for a place that takes pets and this place does,but don't... More

I stay here 40+ nights a year during race season. It's old school. I park my truck in front of my room and walk 20 feet to my bed. Everything is always clean and the shower has great water pressure. There are cabins, old and updated. The same holds true for the motel style rooms. TVs but no phones, which... More

I recently stayed at Seneca Lodge with my 2 small dogs. The one bedroom cabin was private and rustic and met my needs. The price is fair and the surrounding are good for dogs. I felt safe even though I was alone. I recommend taking bug spray, any necessities, and a fan, and of course hiking shoes! The Watkins Glen... More

Highly recommend this gem of heading to the Fingerlakes! We stayed in one of the newly renovated cabins and it was great. Close by is Watkins Glen State Park and the hike along the gorge is a must. Bar area is cool and restaurant is good and moderately priced. Friendly and helpful staff.

We met family here at the Seneca Lodge. The A frame was ok although the eve of the roof was riddled with carpenter bees. The cabin we stayed in was ok. It had 2 full beds and a working bathroom that was clean. Nothing special about it, very rustic. I'd say only stay here if you are comfortable with tent... More

Needed affordable weekend lodging in Watkins Glen on short notice. Saw mixed reviews; but like simple, locally owned motels so I decided to try it. Got a cabin for $75 / night, 2 night minimum on the weekend (which is standard in the Glen during summer). Porsche club was at the track, so the place was pretty full. We were... More
