“Nice for one night”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2013

Very clean and modern room, but very small. It's a good place yo stay if you're passing through town or only staying forgone night. The staff was friendly, but breakfast was the usual mediocre selection. Overall, not bad but not great.

We tried 3 rooms and picked the lesser of the evils. The rooms had a moldy odor that permeated the halls. The staff tried hard to please us and showed us other available rooms.
Breakfast was fair at best. The location was fine. It was near the Corning Glass Museum and 25 minutes from Watkins Glen State Park. The park is a must. Beautiful gorge and many waterfalls if you can climb 832 steps.

Room Tip: Smell the room first.

My family spent a night at this hotel last week and had a great experience. The room was clean and spacious, which is especially nice with high energy children. My kids had a great time at the pool. The pool was large and warm. The hotel staff were very helpful, and were one of highlights of the hotel. As others have written, the hotel is near the Corning glass museum and we spent a few fun, informative hours there before checking out in the morning. I highly recommend a visit to the museum for people who have time. The free breakfast was basic but fine (cereal, yogurt, muffins, waffle machine, juice, coffee); same with the workout room (just two cardio machines and some weights) --- I loved that it's accessible 24 I thought the hotel was a bit expensive, but otherwise was very happy with our stay.

Stayed here for 3 nights will attending the wine fest in Watkins Glenn. Hotel is clean, staff is great. There are some restaurants within walking of the hotel, or your about 5 min drive to the Market street area where there are more restaurants etc...all in all a great stop. Only issue was the breakfast area was small and the hotel was very busy.

Used this as a 'half-way' stop on a long drive with the kids. For the pool. Not disappointed. The kids tore up that pool for hours. The room was big enough and the desk rolled around, which was great for putting 4 people at it to eat our picnic dinner. The breakfast provided was great, and the staff hustled to keep up with the demand. The AC kicked butt and kept the room cold, which I like.

They ran out of cookies when my kids asked for them, but the clerk gave them some kind of snack . Nice!

we picked this place as its located roughly 2 miles from the corning glass museum. The rooms are really big and clean, you have a fridge and uwave in the room so if traveling with kids they come really handy. The main desk staff is nice and you have fresh baked cookies as greetings. The breakfast area is decent size and you have good variety to choose from.

We were driving from Ontario to Pennsylvania and decided to stop in Corning, NY for the night. We arrived after 9pm and got the last room available. It only had a king bed and we are a family of 4. Kayla on the front desk was wonderful! She found us 2 cots, so that we could all get a good night's sleep. As we were settling in, Kayla brought some snacks for our kids as she thought they would be hungry. That was really thoughtful. We ended up going to eat a really late dinner and when we returned, Kayla advised that she had put extra towels in our room as she figured we would need them for the morning. Overall, she was just really helpful and thoughtful. It was very much appreciated.
In the morning we went down for the complimentary breakfast. We had thought the breakfast went till 9:30, but when we got downstairs found that it was only till 9. The lady who was cleaning up the breakfast things though was really accommodating. She said that she would get out anything we wanted, to just let her know. No problem.
The kids enjoyed a swim in the pool before we left.
Overall the room was very clean and spacious and the staff was wonderful. We would definitely stay here again.
