Yes it's showing its age in places but overall it's a great place to stay! Jamie at the front desk was super friendly & helpful. Vic brought us extra towels himself! And we loved having dinner with a view with a delicious local wine and our server, Ryan, was most efficient & helpful, giving us info & tips on the... More

I spoke with Jamie who advised she had several rooms available and proceeded to give me a price along with along the amenities they provide. I thanked her and asked if I could call back to reserve in a few minutes as I needed... More

It's an older motel but well maintained and clean. Our room had a balcony that offered a great view of Seneca Lake. Beds were comfortable and the AC worked fine. A complimentary breakfast is included in the price. The walls of the main lobby are filled with pictures of racing greats that have stayed at the Glen Motor Inn.

This was our first time staying at this hotel and we just booked again for a future visit. This is a very basic hotel, a little dated but VERY CLEAN and the view from the balcony is amazing! If you're looking for a clean basic room at a reasonable rate I would recommend this hotel. Its about a 5 minute... More

The good: the view, the friendliness, the price, and it is basically clean. The bad: the rust on the door hinges, the mould in the bath tubs, the tiredness of the whole place. Take your pick. Definitely something out of the past, even the music they play is sixties.

Stay away from this hotel! great view and that's it. Badly needs updating.. Musty smell in lobby. We arrived for our stay on April 22 for what should have been a two night stay. Upon arrival the owner informed us that they were not 'officially opened yet but gave us a key to a room. We were the only" guests"... More

There is a clear dichotomy of hotels in this area. Either you pay an arm and a leg for the new built ones, or you can pay a reasonable price for a smaller but renovated one. We chose the latter. Cons – All rooms open to the parking lot, you have an actual key to keep track of rather than... More

Nice quiet place to stay, with amazing views. A bit dated, but very clean room. All rooms have balcony which make it very nice. Short drive to watkins glen, easy to get to all the wineries, would definitely stay again.
