“The Tiki Bar!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

The Tiki Bar has become the place to go on Saturday night in Watkins, but fair warning: if you want to pull your boat up or get a seat on the beach, get there before 9PM! Always good music, a lively but respectful crowd and fabulous drinks. Don"t miss: Red Cat Slushies.

We stayed on a Saturday night and also visited the Tiki Bar. The room needed upgrades and so did the bar. There was a band there but really couldn't hear it in our room. We had a group of drunk and loud folks in the room next to us. We asked Stacey if she had another room and without any hesitation, we moved and had quiet. Thanks Stacey. Would I stay there again? Maybe. Nice view of the lake too.

My husband and I have stayed at this hotel multiple times. We keep coming back because of the location and pet friendly rooms. The tiki bar on the water is also a nice addition. They have a variety of local wines, some food, and sometimes a live band. The view of the lake from the deck is beautiful.The rooms are clean, however, not updated. During our last stay the air conditioning stopped working during the night and the bed was extremely uncomfortable. It is a great location for touring the wineries on Seneca Lake and enjoying Watkins Glen.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Anchor Inn whilst touring NY state. It offered better value that most of its competitors with a great location withsuperb views across the lake from the shared balcony area.Our room was a really good size and lovely and clean.
The Tikki bar was cool - just wished we'd had better weather to enjoy the roof terrace! We were really impressed when the owner offered to take us into Watkins Glen for a few (many!) drinks and then even more impressed when he also offered to pick us up at the end of night. We ended up going with him to a local bar out of town and met some rather interesting characters - thanks to him we have a much more interesting and memorable night.

Very over priced for end of September off season. The was a basic room. Room was clean and it was across a lake. Pretty view, but if your staying a night like we did, didn't really get to enjoy the view at night. It was also kinda remote from town. Room charge needs to be reduced after Labor Day.

We just stayed at Anchor Inn...perfect location, updated rooms with everything perfectly acceptable. The only reason that I didn't give 5 stars was due to the high price of $149 which was our AAA discount price! It would be nice to have a mini fridge, but not a deal breaker.
