It is a fairly basic accommodation, I wasn't expecting much for the price, although I would say it is not for the picky traveler. the reception was helpful in directing us to some nearby restaurants. Entrance to park was not too far. All in all decent.

All my husband and I wanted was an economical, clean place to spend one night. We found it at Budget Inn, Watkins Glen. The room was clean and the carpeting looked fairly new. The bed was comfortable and the basics were supplied - TV, hairdryer, table & chairs. Across the street, there was a grocery store, a gas station and...

Spent two nights in this very clean and tidy establishment. Found owners to be very pleasant. It is a budget Inn, so dont come expecting 5 star's of luxury but you can expect and will find clean, tidy and functional rooms which served us well for two nights. Lots to do in the area, eating drinking and walking.

The Budget motel was convenient, right on the highway. The continental breakfast included waffles, a real bonus. The room was very clean. There is a mini refrigerator, no microwave in the room. I would stay there again.

It was the most terrible experience we ever had. The owners of the hotel are very root. They told us to get out when we sad , the light went off in the bathroom. They refuse to call an electrician and fix it. I would not recommend this hotel to anybody.

This was a convenient location for a finger lakes wine tasting excursion. The room was decent for a budget hotel, fairly recently updated and clean. We had a refrigerator in our room, which was convenient, but no microwave. The air conditioning unit was very noisy and kept waking me up (I'm a light sleeper). The hotel itself is on the...

Stayed for a weekend of winery tours. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Breakfast is offered in the lobby area, very limited seating and offering. But adequate for a quick continental breakfast. Convenient to wineries and restaurants.

Excellent home-run inn in Watkins Glen area and close to a lot of restaurants and only a few blocks away from the lake and Watkins Glen State Park. The breakfast is terrific, here you have fresh fruits, mlik, coffee and tea!

Management is rude and unfriendly did not make us feel welcome. Also was charged extra for a third person even though I book a room with two queen size beds. Lastly hotel is extremely overpriced for what it is. I will not stay here again, can find a better nicer hotel for the price.
