The Gould Hotel
Ranked #2 of 4 Hotels in Seneca Falls
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 4, 2013

This hotel is on a corner in the middle of Seneca Falls, a nice little town, and the hotel appears recently remodeled; looks nice on the front -- but was still being re-painted on the exterior. Bar and food at the bar/restaurant were very good. There was a wine tasting in the lobby with hors d'oeuvres while we were there. We were given a back corner room on the third floor. The room decor was very modern; bare "hardwood" floors, tiled bathroom, sleek lines with no frills, grey/mauve/b&w color scheme. Stationary glass half/door on the walk-in shower was designed to take the place of a shower curtain, but the water went thru the bottom space and ran out onto the floor. We were annoyed that the room wasn't comfortable to sit, such as to watch the tv, except for lying in the bed. The only chair in the room was the little desk chair, and that or a windowsill were the only seats in the room; the bed was very high off the floor and not suitable for sitting on. The room was very clean, however. Our only other major complaint was that in the AM, as we were packing up to check out (an hour before checkout time,) my husband was using the bathroom when a man painting the building in a crane-lift outside his window came into view, and was working around the window! The windows were opaque on the lower half, but transparent on the top half, and of course, the worker could easily see in! My husband was extremely upset. Thankfully we weren't late risers and just getting showered! The hotel definitely knew where the painting work would be taking place in the AM, and should have been more diligent about not placing people in those rooms.

We were returning from our Canadian trip through Niagara Falls and looking for a place to spend the night before returning home to Connecticut. We were checking reviews for the Hotel Clarence and decided to stay there. It was a great decision. It is a beautiful, remodeled old hotel in downtown Seneca Falls with a fabulous restaurant. Our room was very clean and very modern, but with a chandelier that harkened back to it's turn of the century heritage. We've done a lot of travelling over the past few years and this place had the best WiFi of any of our recent stays. We have to mention the restaurant. The menu was great and the selections were excellent. The service was very good and the bar was very busy. Hopefully we can find a business or personal reason to visit this area again and find a reason to stay at this wonderful place again.

The Clarence is a 100 year old hotel made over with an ultra modern interior. we had a nice suite on the third floor which was just above the street noise. The king size bed was new , and we slept soundly. The small bar area was cozy and the restaurant staff was friendly and the food good. The rooms are B&B style with a continental breakfast served as part of the deal which added to the value of the saty. The hotel is right next to the Woman's sufferage national park and near a niced walking trail in this quaint, historic village.

Seneca Falls was the last stop on our Erie Canal bike trip. What a surprise to find such a modern and hip hotel in the midst of a old canal town. The room was chic and had the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in in a hotel. Loved the chandelier in the room as well as the clean, functional bathroom. The restaurant was excellent and the bar was very nice. I would definitely stay here again.

We have stayed at this hotel several times and each time we comment on how quaint this sleepy little town is and what a surprise it is to find such a nice hotel in a small town. There are many bed and breakfasts in the area but if you want privacy...a really ( and I mean really) comfortable bed...access to a beautiful bar and restaurant and great proximity to wineries then you should stay here! On our most recent trip here we hit a couple of snags and the assistant manager Jimmy made sure to not only correct them but he went above and beyond to make us happy. Now that is customer service! We live in Boston but travel here to visit the wineries about 2 to 3 times a year. We will continue to visit Hotel Clarence and would recommend it to anyone staying in this area!

We. four guys stayed at Clarence Hotel for 1 night on way to PGA Championship in Rochester. The Hotel was recently refurbished - to a high standard. Great beds, great showers, lovely fluffy towels, Wi-Fi that worked. First rate experience.

Staff was also first rate. When we talked about going into to Rochester, the front desk printed out directions - unasked. That kind of service gets high 5's. The rest of staff were also very helpful - in finding other restaurants, local attractions, etc.

I never chose this hotel,it was chosen for me on a Corporate visit to a local manufacturing plant. The rooms are small, but have everything you need. The bed is probably the most comfortable that I have ever slept on. There is no safe in the room which is a downer for me, but in this little town I doubt there is any risk anyway. Staff were supremely attentive, the food in the restaurant is magnificent and reasonably priced, by Western Australian standards anyway, The bar has a couple of dozen boutique beers on tap at about 5 bucks a pop. Try getting either the quantity,quality or that price at anywhere in capital city, let alone in a country town in Oz. People, we are being seriously short changed in Australia when there are places like this in the world to stay at. If in the area do it, you won't regret it.
