Because of the mixed reviews on Trip Advisor I wasn't sure what to expect when we arrived for our stay at The Villager in Watkins Glen. My party of eight was pleasantly surprised. The place couldn't be any cleaner and the staff was very friendly. Beds were comfortable and the rooms were much bigger then I expected. Although none of... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Vllager Hotel. Staff was friendly,courteous and accommodating. Room was basic, but clean and comfortable. Indoor pool was a real treat, warm and relaxing and basically private, opened for use by request only, for guests only. Close to all the shops, stores, restaurants and parks, perfect location. Would recommend highly!

I have stayed at this motel numerous times. Rooms are very clean and the staff is very professional. The location is very convenient to shopping and restaurants. I loved the fact that they have an indoor heated pool. Would reccommend to friends and family. Will definitely make a return visit.

When we pulled up I was like really?? But the rooms are much nicer than it looks like from outside. We stayed in the hotel with another couple and the room was very clean and comfortable. It was a great location were you could walk to restaurants, bars and the waterfront. Would definitely stay here again.

We have stayed at this location many times over the years. It is very affordable and the location cant be beat. Short walk to the glen in one direction and a short walk to the lake in the other and its near all the good restaurants in town. The great thing about the Villager is the indoor pool and the... More

I stayed in the motel located on the main road and it was very noisy. They also have a hotel that is set off the main road which would have been much quieter and I will request that next time, That said, it was very clean, people were extra friendly, helped me out with directions in town. The pool was... More

I guess if you were stranded this place might do in a pinch but if you are planning a trip for a race, wine tour, or gorge walk and are on a budget avoid this joint at all costs. There are a few cheaper and much nicer places down by the State Park. While the Villager is right smack dab... More

The Villager Motel has no rooms without carpeting as described.We have 3 different buildings with a range of rates. All of our rooms are checked daily prior to guests arrivals. All guests have a right to inspect their room when checking in. If not satisfactory we want to know. This person never contacted our office or management about any problems.... More

The positives: The office staff was very pleasant from the time I made the reservation through my checkout on Monday. Motel was very conveniently located in downtown area of Watkins Glen; several restaurants and... More

Advertised as a bed and breakfast, but you have to cook your own. They put some eggs and bacon in the refrigerator and said help yourself. We visited in middle July with temperatures in 90's. Only a/c was in the bedroom. No fans, and the windows do not open. Bathroom was down the hall from room, with no air.

The Glen Manor is advertised on our website only as a Guest House. Not as a Bed and Breakfast. Only guests occupy the house. Each morning a large continental breakfast is set out by our staff and guests are told to help themselves. We do not have bacon and eggs in the refrigerator.We do not allow guests to use the... More

We've stayed here four times now. It's our first choice for the area. It's a basic hotel. No frills. But very clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. Having the pool is a nice bonus with kids. We usually book their largest room which is huge. Lots of room for two boys to run around and play. Will definitely... More
