This is either a new building or a wonderfully updated building. Everything is very clean and works great. We only stayed one night and booked last minute but the price was right and it was near where we wanted to be so I'm happy that it was better than I would have guessed looking from the road.

This is very quaint motel, great location, right across the street from a wonderful ice cream shop, and a block away from the gorge entrance , the hotel was quiet and recently remodeled and very clean. Coffee, ice and hot water are available in the hotel office and the motel owner is very knowledgable regarding the area..

super clean, obviously newly renovated, comfy bed and even though i didnt need it, the room assigned to me was built for a handicapped individual. Walk in shower, wide doors etc. The owners are so friendly and pleasant. Highly recommended!

The reservation process is rather informal.Initially I left a message on the answering machine and did not get a call back. When I called again, I was told the reservationist was out cleaning rooms. That person did not take all the necessary info to book the room or correctly explain their cancelation policy. They will not give a full refund... More

It has been a very long time since I have stayed in a traditional Mom & Pop motel, but Watkins Glen does not have any of the standard chain hotels. The reviews looked good, so we took a chance. What a pleasant surprise! I am very particular about hotel rooms - a little like "the Princess and the Pea." This... More

The hotel does look nothing from the street. However the rooms are great. The best beds I have slept during this holiday. As well the owner was the most helpful in giving us advice on what to do in Watkins Glenn. If you have time the Corning Museum of Glass is a must!

We stayed here in the Spring with my brother-in-law and his wife. Both rooms were very good, my wife and I had the disability room and although we gave up some room space for the extra large bathroom the room worked very well for us (my wife uses a wheelchair). The motel was recently remodeled (going right down to the... More

This was a great motel! Very clean, everything seemed to be brand new. This motel is almost directly across from the gorge and is in a great spot. Owners were super, super nice! Would absolutely stay again!

We stayed here one night on our way to Niagara Falls. The location of the motel was great! You can walk to the state park, Seneca Lake, restaurants, and shops. The staff was friendly. Our room was very clean and comfortable. However, the room was a little cramp. My recommendations would be to have tissues in the bathroom and to... More
