We thought it would be a good idea to stay in the village and try a motel. Not so. The Villager Motel staff were friendly but it felt that the premises had shut down for the season. It all looked and felt rather sad and tired. Our room was spacious and clean but in need of a refurbishment, especially the... More

The Motel is a Great location in the heart of the town. Close to everything. But you do not get what you pay for. The Hallway walking to our room had a very overwhelming musty order. But the room itself had an even worst order that is indescribable. Luckily we were not in the room for long. The room was... More

We recently stayed at glen manor for 5 nights (October 1 thru 6) and loved it. We stayed in the master bedroom which was spacious and clean. We had this beautiful Victorian mansion to ourselves for 3 of our 5 nights and over the weekend we met other guests and sat around in the evening drinking wine and chatting. The... More

I agree with all of the other reviews. My husband stayed in the adjacent house thinking it might be better than the reviews of the motel. It was not. Our "room" and bathroom were so small we could hardly move. The bed was soft and uncomfortable and the breakfast (if you want to call it that) was disappointing. Save your... More

I have no issues about staying at motels or lower budget accommodations, but when you pay the rate they asked for, you expect more out of a place. Unfortunately, my husband was planning a last minute surprise get away and most places were booked so we ended up here. Upon arrival, we were already taken aback by the service. We... More

I planned a vacation to the Seneca Lake area, Watkins Glen in particular, with two other member of my family. We unfortunately had picked a weekend that was very booked up due to a large event going on in the area. We had a hard time obtaining a reservation. When we finally did obtain a room for the three of... More

Was wine tasting the afternoon away with no expectations of making it back to Long Island. Just needed anyplace to stay. Typical old style motel, bed and bath, but a flat screen TV. I had no expectations, but staff was friendly and bed uncomfortable.

We understood when we booked here that there we no other available choices.....We understood that this was not a Hilton...but if these folks want to be in the hospitality business, then they should be hospitable. We were very, very uncomfortable.....

Positive: breakfast is free and fresh: coffee,tea,fruit, toast,muffins and juice. Very nice area of the hotel. Kitchen is new and clean. Ice is available for both room and cooler. Bring your own wine and bottle openers they have nothing. If the price matched the hotel then I would say, you get what you pay for. But for 300.00 a night... More
