We booked a stay at this hotel as a last minute overnight stay. When we arrived there was a water line break in the town, which meant there was no water in the hotel. Obviously this was not in the control of the hotel, however upon arrival they did not offer any type of compensation for not having water service... More

Our room was lovely, all furnishings looked new & everything was very clean. The staff was friendly and accommodating. I had not booked a lakeview room but put in my comment that I would like one if available. They emailed me the same day & accommodated my request. My only problem with the room was there was some kind of... More

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at the Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel. We were celebrating my Mom's 70th birthday and stayed in the Lakeview Patio room. It was very roomy for four people with a kitchenette. We ate at the restaurant the first night and the food was wonderful and our waiter Dustin was great! We would highly recommend... More

We spent 5 days in the Watkins Glen area and stayed at this hotel. Location is very good and the hotel is beautiful. The room prices bordered on outrageous when we stayed in mid-summer but you do get what you pay for. Very clean with all of the amenities.

My family of four recently stayed for one night at the Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel on our road trip up to Niagara Falls for no other reason than that it was about half way from our last stop in Bethel, NY and appeared to be the nicest hotel in the area.

What a gem in this tuck-away almost forgotten place! We had a fabulous stay, from front desk, the Concierge, restaurant staff to housekeeping, everyone was professional and courteous. I've been recommending this hotel to all my friends for future R&R - well worth the cost! Watkins Glen State Park is not to be missed!

We stayed at the hotel from Monday through Wednesday. When we arrived, our room was not ready, and we were told they don't guarantee availability until 4pm; however, they took our bags and called my husband's cell when our room was ready, while we took a walk around town and hiked in the nearby state park. I loved the room;... More
