Check in was so easy with my room number in the confirmation email and phone number as my door code....park and go straight into the room! LOVED IT!! Especially because it was late & I just wanted to go to bed. The room was clean-freak approved! And Stephanie was very kind to go out of her way to find me... More

Stephanie is a most warm and gracious host, personally ensuring that we had a pleasant one-night stay. The office is separate from the accommodation area. There is free parking, in-room snacks, toiletries and good wifi, I could not ask for more quality at the affordable price. Room 6 was cosy, clean and well-decorated. Gorgeous View Motel offered both privacy and... More

This is a simple, very clean motel - old fashioned motel experience. The view of the lake is indeed gorgeous - though you need to drive or walk a bit to actually get to the lake shore. I'm very sensitive to the smell of mildew - room had a bit of a mildew smell. Not terrible, might not be noticeable... More

During our overnight stay in Watkins Glen we decided to stay at the Gorgeous View Motel, aptly named. We never saw the owner as instructions for us were simply placed in an envelope on the main office door. There were snacks in the room, much appreciated. Free parking and wifi, but thin walls. We had a very comfortable sleep. Bathroom... More

Room was clean, refreshingly new. Nice tiled bathroom. Quiet & efficient HVAC unit. Good view of Lake Seneca. 1 mile out of town from Watkins Glen. Owners very nice people to deal with. Would we stay here again? Absolutely!

We were touring the area and looking for overnight accommodations. Most places in the area were very expensive. We came across the "Gorgeous View" online. Its only rated as two star but Trip Advisor reviews were good. We booked online and were not disappointed. This is not a big place but it is well situated and has an extraordinary gorgeous... More

A comfortable and well-equipped room. Stephanie made us feel welcome, and asked if there was anything we needed - we didn't. Room and bathroom were clean, and fresh towels were provided each day. Complimentary snacks were a welcome surprise. TV and wifi had good reception. The motel does indeed have a great view over Seneca Lake. It is a good... More

Very friendly people. Stephanie knew my name as she was walking by my room when I went out to get something from the car. Impressive. Clean simple rooms with coffee maker, fridge and microwave. Nicely situated just a short drive from downtown and also from the wineries. Automated check in process works great. And yes, they really do have a... More
