Just completed a 5 night stay, the first in a cabin and the rest of the nights in the main building with a view of the lake. Both rooms were simple, clean and comfortable. The grounds were awesome and very expansive. Tony, the manager, was extremely helpful and generous and the rest of the staff was great, too. It's only... More

I stayed at the Lakeside resort fro 4 nights while visiting Watkins Glen for a concert. I was amazed at the wonderful property, breathtaking views and huge rolling lawn. The hotel has cabins and rooms. We stayed in a room with a balcony which had 2 bed room, fridge, multiple AC units, TV with HBO and was very clean. The... More

This hotel had a good location very near to downtown Watkins Glen. The room we stayed in was very clean. The staff was also very accommodating and helpful. The included breakfast is nothing special, but it is overall a great hotel if you are looking to stay somewhere clean and affordable.

Now that I have stayed at Lakeside Resort, I totally understand why reviews cover a wide range (though, honestly, if you rate this place poorly, you are probably a person who needs to stick with high-end chain lodging..). Perhaps the problem is price point, or property age, which in Watkins Glen in peak season usually means paying a lot for... More

We stayed in this motel for 3 nights. We arrived on Thursday night. It was quiet. But the next day, 15-20 Harley Davidson bikers showed up. We came to the area mainly for hiking in the Watkins Glen state park. The park has three major hiking trails. We finished them all from beginning to end in one day. So we... More

My husband and I stayed here this past week (July 12th through the 16th). When we arrived we were greeted by the owner Tony and his dog Jimmy, who made us feel right at home. We got a queen cabin and it was very nice. The room was clean and modern. We had a small fridge and a microwave in... More

My wife and I along with our small dog stayed in cabin 15 July 6th through July 9th. We had a king size bed, a walk-in shower, a small two burner stove and small refrigerator, which was fine for us because we were not going to cook in the cabin anyway. The bed was really firm, which we liked, and... More

We stayed one night in two cottages. The "Cabin Queen" with two beds was newer and the "Cabin King" was a bit run down. The bathrooms were a bit rough and clean enough, but if you are very picky they might turn you off. The shower head was awful and instead of individual soap and shampoo, there is a dispenser...
