“very clean”
Reviewed 13 June 2013

Beautiful view! Only 2 miles to Watkins Glen and close to wineries. Rooms were nice but simple, but they were spotlessly clean and staff was very friendly and accommodating. I have never had such SOFT towels in a hotel before! Would definately stay again. Also, try Wildflower Cafe downtown Watkins Glen. Great food!

Clean but quaint rooms. The floor definitely sloped up towards the back of the room making the second bed un level which meant that all night you are kind of re arranging yourself in your sleep so as not to roll off the bed. It doesn't make for a great night sleep. Great view of lake from the parking lot! Although there are tables, pool and gazebo where you can sit and look over highway 14 to the lake. I found the staff to be quite sullen and unhelpful. We drove all the way from Florida to attend an event at Watkins Glenn race track and when we asked if we could use the hose pipe to rinse the car off we got a big no! The breakfast was just gas station donuts. No conditioner in the bathrooms just shampoo. The rate was 105 for week nights and 135 for weekends, so not really super cheap. We booked 5 nights and had to leave a day early. When we asked if there was anything they could do for us it was another big no. I understand the no's we got but I felt the delivery could of been nicer. Also we asked about wine tasting trips, the answer was 'oh I don't drink, so I don't know'. I thought that since they are in the service industry, in wine country, they might want to be a little interested in the main reason people spend money at their establishment. So all in all adequate but the staff are not very sophisticated.

We really enjoyed our stay at Longhouse. It was wonderful that they accept pets since we were traveling with our two dogs.
The room was very clean and the towels in the bath were so soft and fluffy.
The motel was so quiet and they had a full house the night we stayed. Was nice having direct access to the room without having to go down hallways.
Would definitely stay again, in fact we tried to stay a second night but they were full.

Rooms were cute , each is decorated differently, ours was done country...the beds were very comfortable ...the towels were fluffy...the water was hot ..a small refrigerator, iron and ironing board and a wall clock! I really liked having the wall clock. The rocking chairs out side of the room were comfortable and fun. Breakfast also was fun, we had ours outside in the gazebo and there was plenty of tea,coffee, juice,bagels , muffins and pastries. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our stay was very pleasant and we would stay here again. I read one of the reviews about the odor in a room. i just want to say i have allergies and i cannot take strong odors and before we stopped at this motel we had been to several others in the area and the rooms did smell. One motel said they had just installed new carpet and that was the reason for the odor. This didnt matter i still couldnt stay there if i wanted to breath all night. So we kept looking and stopped at The Longhouse Motel... It was a very good choice for us.

We booked online-paying much more than we would have had we called -per owner at checkout. Toilet in rm 20 ran on and off all night. Told manager we would be gone all day could he fix it. Offered to move us....at a fee of $20! We were floored. We said no and he again said it would be fixed. We arrived back late in the evening to no running toilet...or so we thought. At 3 a.m. used the toilet and it would not flush at all! Husband noticed manager shut off the water. Husband turned it on and to our dismay we again had a loud, running on and off toilet for night number 2. Upon checkout my husband questioned the owner. He said "Oh, did I forget to turn the water on? Why didn't you call me?"He then insisted the toilet had been fixed and offered nothing to make up for our 2 nights of disrupted sleep. Very bummed by the experience. Wineries were wonderful though :)

While we had no complaints about our room or the amenities, we were miffed by the booking process. Looking up the motel directly online, the same price was quoted as did Hotels.com, so we booked through Hotels.com. When we checked in, we were surprised by an $8.50 “booking fee” that we had never been charged before and that had not been identified in the quote (other than a generic “plus taxes & hotel fees.”) This fee was to cover the motel’s “online” booking service since it is not really their own website but is outsourced. I spoke with Hotels.com, with the motel owners, and with the motel’s online booking company, and all three blamed each other for the extra fees. The owner explained that I should have called the motel directly to reserve with them over the phone, and I would have saved nearly $40 for one night’s stay. I find this to be outrageous. A $40 difference is far more than the $8.50 I was first concerned about. So I am smarter now, and will have to phone all hotels directly in addition to my internet searches. Geez nothing is straightforward anymore. The great news is that the owners were sympathetic to my plight and eventually refunded me $8.50. The hotel itself was just as advertised and quite nice. We would stay there again, but we would phone them to make a reservation next time.

Very nice place...if you need a clean place to stay, this is it. Nothing fancy, the rooms are small, but we loved the rockers on the porch (each room has their own). And the view across the street was of Seneca Lake, just beautiful. WiFi is available for free. Nice pool, lots of outdoor tables and chairs, a gazebo. Towels were soft and fluffy and smelled so nice. State park is just down the road and the raceway is a couple miles away. Would definitely stay there again.
