Having grown up in Seneca Falls, NY, I travel back each year to see friends and visit nearby relatives. This year I chose to stay at the Hotel Clarence for four nights.Thankfully, this "old" hotel has been saved, remodeled and renamed. Named for the angel made famous in the classic film IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE, Seneca Falls claims to be the Bedford Falls portrayed in the movie--and the movie runs continuously in the lobby and the look-alike bridge that George Bailey almost jumped off is just down the hill. The super clean rooms could be labeled a bit austere, but the bed and linens are wonderful.
Parking is great, and you can easily walk anywhere in town to check out all the sites connected with women's rights, including the Women's Rights National Historical Park. The lake just a few miles away is a great way to cool off on a hot day, and the many wineries provide another fun attraction. The Finger Lakes are a hidden treasure, and Seneca Falls a great spot to stay.
