Disliked: Amenities
The pool was not useable, there was no continental breakfast. For the price that’s rediculouse when it’s advertised with such.

While this motel has been around for many years, the property owners try very hard to keep it up to date! Each room has a balcony and an awesome view of the lake! My husband and I have been here a number of times and truly enjoy this place!! The staff is excellent and friendly. We keep going back!

Loved being right on Seneca Lake. This Motor Inn is very clean and quaint. If it is not a Historical Landmark, it should be. So much history adorns the walls of the lobby and restaurant. If you are looking for the Ritz Carlton, Move On, you won't find it here. If you are looking for Clean, Quaint with a gorgeous view, with stories galore...A Step back in time, This place is for you! There may not be a hair dryer in the room but you can borrow one from the office. There is no coffee maker but Hot Coffee is available in the dining area as well. If you are like me and pack everything anyway, no biggie. If not, a few minor inconveniences, which really aren't inconvenient at all...We've just become so modernized and spoiled! This place is great!! The owners are very friendly and so full of knowledge of not only Watkins Glen, but the Racing World that put Watkins Glen on the Map BACK IN THE DAY! There needs to be more places like this full of family stories and town culture.
