Stayed at the Harbor Hotel for only one night while passing through NY state on college visits. It is a lovely newer hotel with outstanding amenities and friendly employees. The rooms are very clean, well appointed with plush linens, and attention to detail. Breakfast outside overlooking the harbor was lovely. The ONLY place to stay in the area. Definitely worthy...

Watkins Glen is a small town and this particular hotel charges a LARGE amount for the stay. Yes it looks nice but then compared to the ghetto resembling hotels around it would have to stand out from that perspective. Staff are robotic. Restaurant food cold and tasteless. Just my opinion.

We didn't stay b/c they were fully booked, however, we ate and hang out there a lot. Their concierge and other staff were great and helpful. Beautiful setting, high quality lodging and a restaurant with unparalleled service.

My wife, young son and I had a great weekend getaway at Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel in December 2015. We took advantage of offseason rates, but service and cleanliness did not take the season off as the hotel was in excellent shape. Staff friendly and nicely appointed rooms. In close driving proximity to some great day activities, we look forward... More

We loved our stay at Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel. Before our trip, I had emailed the concierge with a question. She responded in a very thorough email which we so appreciated. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and beautiful, and the beds were quite comfortable. Each morning, they put out coffee by the elevators on... More

Upon arrival there was an issue and they could not provide us the same rooms. However, they gave us side by side but no connected balconey.... More

Made reservation here using AAA guide and TripAdvisor. Ratings are true. This is great little hotel on Seneca Lake. There are lake views and street views, get the lake if you can. This hotel has wised up and put "wooden tiles" on the room floors instead of carpet. This makes the room smell a lot cleaner/fresher than carpet that get... More

This is a great hotel! Clean, friendly staff, and good food. Initially, the hotel made a mistake with our reservation. Once it was brought to their attention, they immediately corrected it and upgraded us. I highly recommend this hotel! The views are awesome as well!

Great hotel. Staff was very friendly from when we checked in to next day checkout. If you can get water view you can see for miles up the lake. Everything looked and smelled new and clean. The fitness center was limited but with the hiking and walking we didn't need it. Close to good restaurants, wineries and hiking the Glen.
