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.

Stayed 3 nights at the Glen Motor Inn. The staff was excellent. The view over Lake Seneca was fantastic. The Inn is a little older but well kept up. Met the owner each morning for the breakfast with a offer of fresh coffee. Very nice with a nice selection of food. Ate in the loun

This was the most horrible, rundown and dirty motel I have ever stayed. The sheets were dirty, there were pubic hairs on the bathroom floor. The curtains did not close, there were holes in the lampshade and scratches on the furniture and such an odd smell throughout the motel. I

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 t

We stopped here without doing any research and it turned out to be a delight. As the other reviews said it is very retro and a bit worn but the staff was very friendly and the room was clean. What made this so great was the view of the lake from our room. My wife and I sat on the

Is it possible to walk into town from here? Or is there reliable taxi/uber?
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.

"All the rooms are good although there are a few on the lower level where your view would be of your car then the lake."

"Free WIFI but didn't always work that great."
