“Great Stay”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

I stayed there for 2 nights on a business trip. The hotel was really clean. I slept really good and did not hear noises or conversations from the rooms nearby. They have very good service. The location is good. I loved it. Felt like at home.

We had a fantastic stay at the Harbor Hotel. Stayed in a lake view room. Beautiful scenery. Nicely appointed room. Comfortable bed. The turn down service was a nice plus. Loved the patio for cocktails and dinner. Food was very good. Servers attentive and friendly. Will definitely be back.

Stayed here in February 2012, and then when we made a 2nd trip to the Finger Lakes, stayed here again in November 2012. Fantastic experience both times. Good rate on the room, quiet and easy to sleep, very clean with high quality linens and comfy bedding. Didn't try out the pool, etc., though both trips we went wine tasting all day, then came back and had dinner at the attached restaurant. Both times the dinner was tasty, large portions, and wine glasses the size of small fish bowls (with healthy pours, too!) Staff in the lobby was very accommodating, and late check-out was no problem.

This hotel was a little pricey but I am so glad we stayed here it was worth it. It is beautiful inside and out. Clean, quiet (which is so rare in a hotel), so comfortable and everyone who worked there was extremely friendly. It is the perfect location right on the water, we ate all on our meals on the water, got to hear bands playing at the neighboring restaurants and could walk to everything, town, and the state park. I would absolutely stay here again.

My fiancé and I stayed at the harbor hotel for our first stay at the finger lakes. The hotel was awesome and walkable to resturants and downtown Watkins Glenn. I recommend upgrading to the harbor view room the harbor is beautiful at all times. We only have one complaint: on July fourth the surrounding area converged on the tip of the lake for fireworks. When we returned from dinner, there was not parking available for paying guests. I told the front desk, they were aware of the issue and were happy to let me know this occurs every July fourth. A minor inconvience, but at such a nice hotel we expect more.

Second time here, not the last. I stay in town when I go do some lapping events at the track. Service is impeccable. It's clean, friendly and comfortable. Apart from an in room safe, everything else is there. A1 staff.

My husband and I stayed here for a one-night anniversary get-away, our first getaway without the children. The hotel looked lovely online, and it did not disappoint. We arrived a little early, too early to check-in, so we enjoyed a beautiful lunch and some drinks on the patio, overlooking the lake, while waiting for our room to be ready. Our room was large, modern, and clean. We enjoyed our second floor balcony, overlooking the lake, and the sounds of the soft jazz music playing from the landscape speakers. We spent a leisurely morning sitting out there, drinking the complimentary coffee, reading the complimentary Sunday newspaper, and enjoying the views. The grounds were well kept, and we enjoyed walking around them, out onto the dock and the break wall. We also really liked the fact that the toiletries were eco friendly and paraben free. We ate dinner at Blue Pointe Grille and enjoyed that as well, and afterwards had a couple beers in the Cold Water Bar while watching the Stanley Cup Playoffs. There was also a tv outside showing the game, and a nice little campfire to sit around. We did not use the fitness room or pool area, but they looked nice. The free wifi worked great.

Room Tip: We thought the balcony was well worth the upgrade.
