“Basic hotel - clean - convenient”
Reviewed 14 June 2010

Went to Watkins Glen to visit the wineries. Stayed one night at this motel. Paid around $105. Clean and some of the bathroom fixtures were remodeled. Shower head is old and took forever to get hot water.
Convenience - close to everything in Watkins Glen - grocery store across the street - can get breakfast snacks drinks.
Microwave and small fridge along with table and chairs in room.
It is your basic drive up to the room motel from the 50s.... but it has been updated and was very clean.

Stayed June 2010, travelled as a couple

We looked at 3 other motels. Budget was newest of 3, cleanest and priced @ $78. Colonial was clean but older @$85, Glen Way Motel very old $69. All about 10 blocks apart.

Pros: friendly, more reasonable for this area ($75-85), clean, very good mattresses

Cons: no HBO or refrig in many rooms, some rooms incredibly small, no clothes pole to hang clothes, no wifi, almost no vanity space in bathroom, shower light/fan extremely noisy.

This motel has 3-4 buildings with wildly varying situations. Suggest you ask to see your room.

A clean and basic old style motel where you park at the door of your unit. It's situated near the intersection of two main roads which results in traffic noise especially trucks braking or moving up to speed. It's been refurbished with some noticable clues. Our room's front door inside trim was bare and unfinished and the pictures were attached to the wall by wood screws right through the frame. The satellite TV was great, the best we have had in a motel in years! There's a waterfall right in the backyard of the property which probably accounts for the rather damp location. Paid $69 plus taxes for a room with a quiet fridge (no microwave), no luggage stand, no radio/alarm, free local calls. There was a 5 day cancellation policy when we booked.

This Budget Inn is very clean and the service is great. The owners live on site so they are always available if you need anything. I have to say I was a little worried when they told me it was only $85 plus tax per night; I immediately thought it wasn't going to be so nice but I was wrong. I would def refer friends/family to stay here and I would stay again. This hotel is right on the main street so the traffic is very busy but it's quiet at night. Everything that you could possibly need is in walking distance-CVS, grocery store, liquor store, pizza hut, burger king, dunkin dounuts, ice cream and the State Park. The one thing I was disappointment about was we had the king size bed which didn't include a frig & microwave. They do however offer foam coolers with ice so that was good. all in all def a good place to stay.

This is fine basic motel. It is clean and comfortable. Our room had a refrigerator and a microwave. Close to everything, although it is on the main road and the traffic can be noisy.

Was in watkins glen on business. Found this motel by chance. If your looking for a super clean motel this is the one. Nothing fancy. Has great mattresses and movie channels free and very reasonable rates. Close to everything. Would and will stay there again. From luckey Ohio
