“great weekend in Watkins Glen”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We spent three nights at the Golden Knight, and it was wonderful. Exceptionally clean. Our trip to the Finger Lakes was spectacular. If you're looking for a great, comfortable 'home base', the Golden Knight is perfect. Right down the road from the finest wineries, and up the road from town. Nothing was too far away. Do not miss a trip to Bellhurst Castle. The motel owner advised us regarding dinner at the Decoy. It is not to be missed. Also told us about the Windmill outdoor market. It was a great experience. Also,loved the bed linen, so pretty along with the quilt. I appreciated that alot.

Room Tip: We stayed in rom 217 because it had the fireplace, but the weather was in the high 70's, low 80...

My wife and I just returned today from a 3 night / 4 day stay at the Golden Night Inn. This was our first trip to the Finger Lakes and we will definitely return!

While preparing for this trip, we did a lot of internet searching and found many different motel / hotel accommodations. After communicating via email with the inn keepers at the Golden Knight, we chose to stay at their facility. As many know the internet and brochures can be less than truthful about their accommodations. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. While checking in, we spoke to one of the inn keepers (I believe her name was Carol) and she was very helpful in providing information on local restaurants, wineries, breweries and other attractions. The Golden Knight is an older facility, but appears to have been recently updated.We found our room to be very clean and quite comfortable. The Inn is located about 5 miles north of Watkins Glen and is centrally located to most attractions.

As I said earlier in my post , this was our first trip to the Finger Lakes, but it definitely won't be our last. On our next trip, we will definitely stay at the Golden Knight Inn!

We stayed several nights in two adjoining rooms. The staff were very helpful and always pleasant. When I called to make the reservations the woman who answered the phone patiently helped me to figure out the different options and prices for rooms for our family.

The rooms were spotless and pleasant. Each room had an AC, a microwave, coffeemaker and a minifridge. We had some issues with the wi-fi, but there is a wired internet access in each room as well--so bring a laptop not a smart phone or tablet. The beds were comfortable.

Rock Stream is about 5 minutes from Watkins Glen by car, so we were close to the state park and various restaurants and shops. Several wineries and a cheese-trail site are practically next door.

This is a family run motel, so there's no 24 hour desk staff, no restaurant, nothing like that. We didn't miss it. Although the motel has no pool, there is a gorgeous free community pool in Watkins Glen State Park with a separate wading pool.

One tip for travellers--the local water has a particular taste. Not bad, just noticeable. We got some bottled water from the Walmart in town and used that for our coffee.

Stayed two nights. Both rooms were clean and comfortable. Nothing fancy but a nice place to get rest from a full day of sightseeing waterfalls. They also have the inn at Hector Falls so we were given permission to view it from their property. Nice perk. Would stay there again. Both locations are family run and they are very friendly. Enjoyed talking with them.

The Golden Knight is exactly what it is advertised. Economical and clean. Family owned and everyone was very pleasant. If you are looking for luxury then keep looking . but if you are looking for a place central to all Seneca Lake wineries for a great price then the Golden Knight is just what you are looking for. No frills but close and clean.

Thank-You so much for choosing our facility for your one night stay. I would like to clarify that each of our rooms include at least one very comfortable king size bed, a refrigerator, a microwave, a coffeemaker, coffee & condiments, an iron & board, hairdryer, cable TV with HBO/ Cinemax, wired hi-speed internet as well as WI-FI.Though, our sheets are 250 thread count, I know we are not a luxury hotel, I have never said we were. But, no frills?? I think we should qualify for at least one frill. Thanks for staying with us, we appreciate your business!!

Smelled, looked and felt clean. Gorgeous view. Close to restaurants, marina & Gorge park. Within easy biking distance of lots of wineries. Great rates; got a 'last minute' deal for $81 per night. Nice owners. The toilet paper was super thin and showers were either scalding or freezing, but other than that, I'd definitely stay there again.

Thank-you for commenting on our view!! It really is quite beautiful, especially in the morning when the mist is coming off the lake. We are glad you were able to take advantage of the last minute special from goldenknightinn.com. It is an economical way to stay and still have some cash left for wine, cheese etc. We had just changed toilet paper supplier and this product is a bit thinner than our previous brand. We have taken this comment into consideration. I do wish you had mentioned the trouble with the shower during your stay. It is very important to let us know when you experience a problem, so, we have an opportunity to rectify it. Thanks so much for staying with us and we hope to see you again.
