The Longhouse is pet friendly and the staff is guest friendly. Good view of the water and convenient to Watkins Glen. Rooms are small compared to today's standards but are complete with all amenities needed. Especially like the ability to load/unload directly in front of your unit. Very clean and the grounds are well maintained. Cont'l b'fast each morning. When... More

I've stayed at the Longhouse at least three times over the years but no more. The rooms are dated, musty, and on my last visit, I needed to have housekeeping come three times before gross things were vacuumed up off the rug.

Terrible hotel. Very over priced for what you get. The air conditioning wasn't on when we arrived. They had the windows open with the heat blowing in. The air conditions and room both outdated. The shag carpet felt crunchy under my feet. I believe my wheezing was from mold and mildew. They did have an adequate free breakfast and pool... More

Old school motor lodge overlooking seneca lake. Clean and comfortable located close to many Watkins Glen attractions. Very friendly staff. Good value and worth considering when looking for accommodations in the area.

Wish I paid more attention to the reviews! Dark, musty odor! Breakfast on Father's Day was 2 1/2 hrs late! Rooms were very dated. It was very hot and the odor from the air conditioner was horrendous! Legionnaires disease waiting to happen! All and all maintenance was not good! Ok if you were desperate! Other than that don't waste your... More

I stayed here for a long weekend. The proximity to the town was great. It was also relatively close to the Watkins Glen International race track. The room was very large but the beds were a bit creaky. This motel is not a modern facility at all. It really is a throwback to an earlier era. What made it really... More

this place told us that some things have not changed since the 70s. Dark, damp, and little service- yet the walls had been painted this summer, it was clean as far as we could see, and fully occupied even though there were no events in town. Unless you took your "breakfast" to the room, you had it standing in the... More

Room was clean for the most part for the price. Two of the bath towels or still wet when we went to use them so they must not have dried in the dryer. Also the shower curtain liner and orange soap all over it and some black mold which was a bit gross. Rest of the room basically seen clean... More

Last minute trip got us an end, corner room (near housekeeping quarters). No view. basic room but we weren't in Watkins Glen to be in the room. A cheap place to sleep and shower. Comfy bed, soft "bath towels. An old rose/burgundy recliner was a surprise when we walked in. Small frig and microwave (did not need to use) Close... More
