Regardless of the time of year, the Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel should meet or exceed your expectations for first rate accommodations in the Finger Lakes. Spacious, well-appointed guest rooms with tile floors and a gorgeous bathroom with walk-in shower are delightful. We have stayed both in February and June and have enjoyed using this hotel as our base for visiting...

Wonderful hotel that makes you feel special from the moment you walk in the front door until you check out. Staff was very friendly and the rooms exceptionally comfortable. Our room had a lake view which was stunning. Also it's very close to the wineries and just a short walk to the shops.

Everything at this hotel is top notch, from the personnel, to the facility, to the food. We visited once for our anniversary and twice now for the Ice Bar held in February. I will add photographs at a later date.

I'm just being honest as I'm a regular to this area. Their is nothing wrong with Harbor Hotel but their is nothing special. It is clean and accommodating but so overrated. Their are so many quaint places with better views for half the price. Do your research by reading samples from the one and two stars and not just the...

This hotel is beautiful. It does cost more than the average in the area, however you do receive a few touches that makes up for some of that cost, such as a turn down service with chocolate, great soaps, robe and slippers. Beautiful view of the lake. Friendly front desk and bar service, great room service. I agree with the...

This hotel is located on the south end of lake Seneca. It was very comfortable. The room was spacious with ample area to sit and chat. The location makes it easy to walk to the main strip in the town. We were there in the winter so some of the restaurants were closed.
