“Longhouse Lodge Motel”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

When I first called for reservations for a 4 night stay the woman was very rude over the phone but I booked anyway as it was close to the wedding venue.

When we checked in the woman at the desk told us they had in incident prior to our arrival and the window screen was broken so we should keep the window closed and locked. When I got to the room the air conditioner and ceiling fan both didn't work. The next morning I tracked down housekeeping and she got maintenance to come and work on it but the guy did not appear happy to do it. There was a lot of people there with dogs and we think there were people with dogs in our room before we got there as we discovered fleas. They didn't have a very good breakfast, it looked like convenience store food. We cut our trip short.

Not clean at all. Dust and cob webs in room and bugs and spiders in bathroom. I asked for a credit and they said no. They don't clean it seems like. Probably they just do the beds and empty the trash. Will not stay again.

Old motel in a pretty location overlooking Seneca Lake and convenient to downtown and Watkins Glen State Park. The room was comfortable, reasonably spacious and basically clean (although I did spot some cobwebs in a corner of the ceiling). The décor was old-fashioned and quaint, but not designed for easy cleaning. The buildings need maintenance and more effort to keep the grounds clean. Also, the young man at the desk in the mornings seemed to be bored and inattentive and he made little effort to keep things stocked. This seemed to be a pattern of not much attention being given by the owners to the condition of the property except that the little pool was kept clean. My main complaint was the very limited and cheap quality continental breakfast items, including weak coffee. The nicest thing was the real towels, although the heavy use of fabric softener made them not very absorbent. Overall, it was an ok place to stay if you don't want to spend a lot for a room while staying in this beautiful area.

The motel is old and had a horrible smell (Musty) after just one night.. I had a horrible headache and I know it was from the mold in the motel room. We had paid for the weekend and I wanted a refund for the remaining two nights. The owner was very rude and almost violent acting ..after refusing to refund my money.. I ask to see his wife or the woman who had been there the night before.. I almost had to call the cops he was so horrible to deal with and I still didn't get the full amount..he finally gave me a partial refund. I never had somebody act in this manner. Horrible, Horrible, Horrible! The guy also had a black eye which might have something to do with his character.

We are here right now in a clean comfortable, although small room, where we had a cool, quiet night's sleep on great beds. This morning, even though we got to breakfast late, there were English muffins to toast with lots of toppings, donuts, juice and beverages....just enough to start the day in the gorgeous Finger Lakes. Great view from the clean pool or gazebo, and the hanging baskets outside each room are amazing. Friendly staff too. We were considering Gorgeous View Motel, but it was $125. plus with no pool or breakfast, and we paid $104. here! No brainier!
This is our new Watkins Glen stay.

Room Tip: All are good, and with AC on, no road noise. Clean.

We wanted a one-night accommodation while travelling through the area and used Trip Advisor to help us choose this place. We chose an extra large room, with really high ceilings. We also had a dog. It seems like it has probably been around a while (i.e. some of the furnishings looked a little dated) but for the price and convenience I would happily stay here again. There is a lovely view over the lake across the street from the rocking-chair strewn balcony that runs along the hotel. Close to the town, but far enough away that you can have peace and quiet. They had a nice pool, too.

My husband walked in the bathroom to find a washcloth left on top of the shower curtain, and the whole room smelled musty to begin with, there was also a gap at the door to let all the bugs in. The only good thing were the bagels for breakfast.Couldnt wait to leave!Worst place that I've ever stayed at, honestly!not worth the money!
