I love staying here, it might not be your high end hotel motel but its a place to lay your head at the end of the night and its close to Watkins Glen Park, and short distance to start the tour . The view is amazing

Old motel but very clean. Huge rooms overlooking seneca lake with beautiful view!! The issue was that we chose this hotel because there is an onsite restaurant so we wouldn't have to drive after an all day wine tour. However the restaurant was closed early for the season. I wish

Thank you for your review. We apologize that you were not able to dine with us. We closed a week early so our Chef could go back home to be married. Unfortunately, we were unable to find anyone to come take his place for a week. We do have hair dryers available for guests to use at the front desk and we agree about the coffee makers. Thank you again, Cheers.

We are very sorry that you were unhappy. We would have gladly done all we good to rectify any and all issues immediately had we known when you arrived or even at Check-out. Our furnishings are out-dated, no question. However, our Housekeeping staff is excellent. We recently purchased all brand new linen but our laundry system is old fashioned........everything is folded by hand. Perhaps this is why you found dingy or wrinkled. Our back staircase was in the parging process for cement repair and painting. Again, we are sorry you were so disappointed.

The motel is dated, that's a fact. But, it was clean, and ideally situated to both Watkins Glen and the wineries along route 14. Staff was friendly. We used two rooms, one with a king sized bed, the other with two doubles. In one room the TV was updated to a flat screen, in

Hello, It is possible to walk into town, it is a mile down the road. You would have to walk along the 4 lane highway briefly to get to a residential road that is much nicer walk to downtown. Uber is just beginning in our area. Thank you for you interest.
