This place is literally right across the street from the entrance to Watkins Glen state park. The location of this place is absolutely perfect. My fiancé and I stayed in the motel part and the room was very clean. Definitely nothing fancy with the room though - it was standard and small looking. But it was still perfect - the... More

Review is for the Restaurant: We travelled here with a group and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. Our server was terrific! High energy, great personality. The atmosphere and history of the Lodge / restaurant is great. Food was good. We went on a Friday night and they had excellent entertainment in the lounge. I highly recommend a stop... More

I always take my old racing mechanic friend from the 60's. Great welcome, just like the old days...great food, great people. Very quiet and unspoilt, and recently added some new cabins, basic but good.

Stayed here the past two years for the weekend of the Glen race. Last year our toilet didn't work, and they did nothing to compensate us for the inconvenience. This year the price increased due to renovations, yet our room is literally all the same. They provide you 2 wash cloths for 4 people, yet provide 4 towels. Last year... More

As a racing car enthusiast, I went to the Lodge with the sole intention of seeing some of the Formula One memorabilia (Watkins Glen drivers). Although we arrived at a downtime, the staff was pleasant and allowed us to walk around the common areas - restaurant and bar. We were fascinated by the arrows sticking into the walls - the... More

When planning my stay on Seneca Lake, I was looking for basic, simple lodging that was clean and affordable. I spent the majority of my time hiking, biking, kayaking, and enjoying the many nearby wineries so I didn't need a fancy room. I stayed in one of the newer cabins, #86. The cabin was clean, large, and the bathroom was... More

The cabins we stayed in were new and very clean, zero complaints about that. I found it a little odd that they don't offer shampoo but i can understand why there would be no TV or fridge. Warning: the beds are twin sized, only one person per bed and we made a mistake when we reserved a room online. The... More

Been staying here for years on motorcycle trips with friends. It's a no-frills kind of place, but clean and with a great location for touring the Finger Lakes area. Terrific bar and restaurant. Perfect place to end a day's ride with friends.

We were given one of the older cabins at first but the bedding had hairs on it. We were not sure what hair it was but it was on both beds so we asked for another cabin. We then were given a newer cabin much nicer, clean and no hairs on the bedding. There no TV's or radios but that... More

I've always wanted to go there after hearing so many good things about it. The Crab Cakes were amazing, as was the rustic setting. As a fan of Formula One in the glory days of the Track, I LOVED the racing memorabilia in the bar area! We were very disappointed with our server who spent more time hanging out and... More
