Ok, where do I even start! We were 2 adult couples, and had booked 2 rooms for 2 nights. We wanted to stay in the village so we could walk to restaurants. I had thought that both rooms were in the manor but it turned out that one was in the manor and the other was in the “hotel”. You must read the description of this “hotel” closely :
“The two story building on 4th Street is called the Motel. Behind the motel is a one story building that we call the Hotel where our indoor pool and sundeck are located. Located on the same property is a Victorian Mansion called The Glen Manor Guest House with its spacious lawns and Historic Carriage House.”
The motel is on the main drag going through the town (4th Street) and the rooms are right along the sidewalk very close to the road. There are motel rooms on the opposite side as well, facing the parking lot. The “hotel” I guess is called a hotel because the rooms are accessible from an indoor hallway. The manor is a lovely large while house, separate from the motel and hotel, with a laundromat between the properties.
The couple we were with (my son and his wife) were booked in the manor and we were in the hotel. They were not impressed with either of the rooms and couldn’t believe that the owners could charge $150-$160.My daughter-in-law felt the manor was eerie and they thought the motel room had a funny odor. (When they spoke to the staff at the office about the accommodations there was quite a falling out. He was a discontent customer but what he was saying seemed to insult some of the staff. He just wanted to leave and the staff at that point wanted him to leave, but after he paid them the $160 deposit..That didn’t go over too well and in the end we switched rooms) We willingly took the room in the manor as my husband and I thought it was exactly was we had expected and the younger couple took the room at the “hotel”. We really liked the master bedroom in the manor. The bed was clean and comfortable. The shower stall is not very big so if you are a “big” person, you may have a problem getting into it. We enjoyed sitting out on the porch with a glass of wine in the evening (but if you’re looking for a quiet spot, this is not the place as it’s on the main thoroughfare through the village). We didn’t eat breakfast in the morning (really only had breads, cereals, and granola bars), but did go to Savard’s one morning and had a huge breakfast there. If you’re looking for a place to stay in the village, well, read the information closely about the accommodations. And it appears that what one person thinks is an acceptable room, definitely doesn’t work for another. I used the rating of average based on what to expect in Watkins Glen.
