The lodge had a great location as well as food, but I'm not to sure I would stay here again. We stayed in an A frame and while I expected the rustic style and musty cabin smell, the beds were incredibly uncomfortable and the sheets weren't clean. Would come back again to grab food at the lodge though!

Stayed in one of the cabins. Very nice room, looks pretty new with pine paneled walls, clean bathroom nicely tiled. Only strange thing is there is nothing to put your luggage on or your clothes in. Completely missing a dresser or luggage rack so you have to put your stuff on the floor or one of the chairs. Easily over... More

Visited this property with a bicycle group. Best to say it is past it's prime. Not close to anything in Watkins Glenn, so you are forced to use their restaurant. That experience is for another review.

On a first -ever visit to Watkins Glen, New York, we heard time and time again from the locals "you MUST visit the Seneca Lodge". We did, and were charmed by the GREAT dining facility, first class cuisine, and friendly service. A lovely salad bar, with the dressings made in-house, .......... wow. Too bad that it is 4700 kilometres from... More

We took a large car club group up to Seneca Lodge on Friday, October 16th and everyone loved it. The restaurant/bar is a must see for any car enthusiast! The car racing history in Watkins Glen is amazing and the hotel (an old lodge with cabins) was exactly what I had is expected. If you are looking for luxury this... More

My girlfriend, chihuahua and I rented out a small cabin here for 72 dollars / night. Ours was basically just a large bed, a table, ac unit and a bathroom, but that's all we needed (no tv, no fridge). The spacious lodge was right next to us, served great food and had a nice little hunting/racing themed bar attached. Seneca... More

We stayed at the lodge with a group of friends, each with their own room next to and behind each other. The room was small but adequate, a little musty smell but beds were comfortable enough. Not your typical chain motel, no shampoo or hair dryer. What i liked the most was that there is a wonderful restaurant serving breakfast... More

This lodge was pretty cool - the first night we stayed in the lodge (really just a hotel room). It was nice and clean. The second night we stayed in a cabin - it was bigger and very clean but not much else. No tv in the cabin, no fire ring but it had spotty wifi. It was tight quarters... More

Stayed here one night during the week and opted for a " Motel room" there are a choice of rustic cabins of various sizes but the Motel rooms are a little larger and have TV and so we opted for that plus they have King size beds. It was quite a simple room with a desk, TV, Air conditioning and... More

We stayed at the Seneca Lodge Watkins Glen and had a great time. We stayed in one of the new cabins and though it is small it was very clean with a large washroom. It had it's own airconditioner and we couldn't believe how quiet it was. If you are looking for a couple nights in wine country give it... More
