My husband and I enjoyed our stay so much the first time, that we are planning another trip to the Anchor Inn. No , it isn't the fanciest motel...but it's clean and the staff was very welcoming. The view from the shared porch was a very nice way to relax and also to chat with some other vacationers. If you... More

Loved the Tiki Bar and the convenience of the location. Room was clean, air conditioning worked great, staff was friendly and accommodating! There is construction going on all around the property, but it didn't bother us since we were there to enjoy what Watkins Glen had to offer.

Arrived by boat with another boating party. Went to the bar, and the other party ordered their drinks and I figured I was next because I was standing right beside my friend. The owner was bar tending alone, so I knew things would be a little slower. Slower????? How about not at all. As I stood at the bar with... More

If you are traveling to the Watkins Glen area there are a lot of Hotel and Motel choices. We have stayed previously at the Anchor Inn and Marina. The last time was about 6 years ago but we remembered the beautiful views and wanted to take those in again. The last time we were there they had some construction going... More

A very disappointing stay. The location looks like a construction site. Their website says that their accommodations have a "spectacular view of the lake". We reserved and were required to prepay two rooms for three nights at $200/ night/ per room by making a 50% non-refundable deposit. One room had a lake view and access to the shared porch, and...

We are budget travelers. Not looking for 5 star, just clean and safe. I'll start with the negative: Hotel and cabins are older with understandable wear and tear. They could definitely use some upgrades. There is a bit of a musty smell that we noticed only when we entered the rooms. Now for the positive: The location is wonderful. Up... More

Honestly speaking we went all the way to Watkins Glen and we didnt had reservations for long weekend. We called and visited several hotes/motels but there was no vacancy. Amazing my friend found this place at very last moment and we just took it being very tired. My god, when I opened the window in the morning, there was the... More

Very disappointing stay, I will not even consider staying there again.It was a construction site which was not mentioned when I booked the room. I asked about the view of Lake Seneca and was told how great it is, it would have been if the scaffolding wasn't blocking it! I also asked about the internet connection and was told that... More

We stayed the week before Labor Day. The hotel is across the street from the lake and there is a shared porch for each wing of rooms. We stayed in two rooms. The quality of the beds varied - I did OK, the couple with me did not. They found the first bed to be saggy, the second found wet... More

The Anchor Inn is not a luxury hotel but I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were quiet and clean with a nice tv and we loved the outdoor seating overlooking the lake. The tiki bar across the street on the lake was a huge plus. Convenient - Just up the street from the town center. We really enjoyed our stay.... More
