Upon arrival the manager was extremely friendly and accommodating to our needs. The room was a good size and very clean. The view from the room, as well as the yard viewing area, was gorgeous! The continental breakfast was also perfect for after our morning hike at the falls. It was just what we were looking for. We will definitely... More

My mom and I stayed here with my greyhound during Grapehounds NY, an annual greyhound event, from 7/24-7/27. As others have stated, this isn't really a resort necessarily, but that's made clear by the property photos and description. We stayed in the motel portion as opposed to the cabins. Our room, which had two double beds, a microwave, and a... More

We just returned from a week's stay (July 13-19)j at this delightful resort. It's not really a 'resort' per say but It was exactly what it says -small, charming with wonderful views of Seneca Lake. We stayed in the end unit of the brown buildings. We sat on the porch and looked down on Seneca Lake. The room was clean... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this charming little motel on a summer weekend getaway to the Finger Lakes region. It was low-maintenance and just what we were looking for. The location on Lake Seneca was perfect for driving into town, nearby wineries and restaurants and, of course, Watkins Glen State Park. The rooms are delightfully tacky and decorated with... More

To call it a Resort is a an overstatement. It does have a wonderful view of the Seneca Lake and close to many Watkins Glen attractions and Race track but that's where the benefits ends. Our room was clean but the mattresses were too hard (even for firm mattress lovers like us) and the shower did not work properly. You... More

Well, we WANTED to stay at this hotel, but the not-very-nice-on-the-phone proprietor won't take reservations for single nights. I offered to pay in advance, and he said he would do so if I paid $300 a night for each room.

I now stayed at the Lakeside Resort for 20 nights, over two years. Wonderful view of the lake, a long lawn framed by trees, the Lake and then a waterfall on the opposite shore. Clean and fully functional rooms with frig and microwave. Reasonable prices. Tony, Jimmy the Lab and Katie the Cat all make a person feel at home.

This place was so awful we asked for our money back and found another place to stay. The two rooms we were given to pick from were old, run down, and not very clean. The owner kept telling me he gave us a good deal and did us a favor by renting us a room for one night when many... More
