Reviewed 7 October 2013

Second time staying there, nicely run motel. Its clean and very convenient to everything. Owner is so sweet. Morning breakfast is just coffee, tea and packaged muffins, no big deal but its something. Good for the price, couldn't ask for more. Fridge, microwave and drying in room.

The Seneca Clipper Inn is close to everything in Watkins Glen but the beds are hard as rocks. It would have been more comfortable sleeping on the floor. The room was small but clean and the A/C would not stay running. It kept shutting off during the night and we would wake up to a stuffy room.

Room Tip: Small but clean

We have stayed at the SCI a number of times when we visit Watkins Glen NY for yearly car shows. The staff is great The location to the center of town is convenient. The rooms are clean. But the beds are hard as a rock. While at our car show we exchanged laffs with other SCI residents and everyone had the same back aches due to the beds. We love this little family owned motel but they need to consider doing something to the beds.

Room Tip: might want to book away from the gazibo as there are sometimes some late nite "business meeting...

Rooms included hair dryers and refrigerator. A no frills hotel, clean and convenient and quiet.... We would stay there again. Nice parking lot and a fabulous ice cream parlor right across the street. Location was convenient to the harbor and state park gorge.

Enjoyed our stay - very clean and conveniently located on Rt 14. Short walk to the Watkins Glen gorge and about a mile to Seneca Lake. Restaurants and stores nearby. A very good value. Accepts AAA discount.

Rooms are small but clean. Bathroom has been updated. Was pricey for the size and amenities but it's a tourist area on a June weekend.

The room was a little old fashioned but clean & fine. Friendly staff. Good location, though the street can be busy, but it is not the interstate!!! Very good price, there is a AAA discount
