I made reservations a week ago, and was quoted a price for two nites at $60 per nite, but when we got there the other day, they doubled the price to $120 per nite. This class of hotel is not worth $120 per nite, more like $65 per nite. It's very small, and has no features. Worse of all, all...

We spent one night here while roaming around the area. Property was clean and so were the rooms. There is a fairly new Tops across the street that has a very nice deli. A well stocked package store was next to the Tops. There is also a family restaurant a very short walk up the road. We didn't personally try...

It was a toss up between Budget and another hotel for a quick getaway in Watkins Glen. Based on my telephone conversation with the Budget front desk alone, I declined to book there. Curt attitude, heavy accent, almost unintelligable, 2 word answers, smoking only rooms, then a rapid-fire phone number followed by "call my cousin next store - he has...

There is nothing distinctive about this property but the rooms are clean and the owners are pleasant. They offer a limited continental breakfast. We could not get Wi-Fi in our room, but could get it in the office. TV included HBO. There was a fridge in the room. Watkins Glen is a little town. This hotel is just fine for...

We stayed here for 2 nights, we booked 2 Queen bdrm, extra person charged $10/day which is reasonable. Our room has microwaves & fridge, which we don't need it actually. Hair Dryer is installed in the washroom. The shower stall is pretty new and clean. The parking lot is newly paved, lots of beautiful flower baskets hanging in front of...

We stayed one night while in Watkins Glen. Nellie at the front desk (maybe the owner) was very friendly and helpful. Our room was small, but very clean. The bathroom was very nice, apparently recently updated. There was no fridge or micro in our room. Our traveling companions did have a fridge and micro in their room. There are hair...

We stayed for one night when we found ourselves in town a day early. It was a pleasant surprise. The room was clean. They had Internet service and a little breakfast. They did not have refrigerators but they did have plenty of ice. The locations is very good, an easy walk into town and a few nice restaurants.

Went to Fingers Lakes for the Wine Festival. Had a reservation in Horseheads until we found it was a good 30 minutes away. We checked a few hotels for same day arrival and found the athe Budget Inn suited our needs. The bed was firm but comfortable, the room was simple with a king bed and private bath and most...

Stayed here for an overnight on a 4 day motorcycle ride. Front desk lady was very friendly and helpful. Room was your regular motel room size, but the appeal here is the extreme cleanliness and impeccable upkeep of the property. Located about 12 blocks from "downtown", it is still close enough to be practical and far enough to offer reasonable...

Hubby and I were in town 2 nights for a wedding. The owner and his wife were polite and helpful. We had a pleasant stay. The room, bed and bathroom were clean and comfortable. Loved that the bed was firm and not mushy like some motels. We got a good night sleep. Coffee and a bite to eat in the...

“Our room was facing the parking lot and the main road going into town. Consider this if you are a light sleeper. I did not find it a problem since the traffic became light after dinner time.”
