My fiancé and I love this hotel and always stay here when we visit the Finger Lakes Region. On this trip, we took our 4 teenagers during Christmas break (ages 15-18). We stayed in two rooms and were very comfortable. I love the look and feel of this hotel. The pool area is fun. The staff is excellent. I can't...

Stopped here during the winter while passing through the state. Certainly off season, but with snow everywhere around Seneca Lake it was a nice stopover. The hotel is amazing, much better than I would have ever expected for this quiet town. The views of the lake were gorgeous and great to wake up to. The staff was very pleasant and...

Almost everything about this place is perfect. We stayed there for an anniversary weekend and love it for the most part. The rooms are wonderfully well done, the entire place has been decorated well (there around the holidays) appointed beautifully. The food was very good, and service was wonderful. Only two things kept if from the highest rating. One, the...

Watkins Glen Harbor a must stay. Top level hotel. Very close to restaurants, attractions and the water. The State Park is a must see attraction but you need to be in condition because there is a lot of climbing stairs and walking. The water falls are a must see. There is a cost to enter the park.

We did not have one complaint about our stay here at the Harbor Hotel. We arrived on a Monday and stayed for one night. We were on the fourth floor with a view of the lake. The room was clean, the bed was comfy, and the view was beautiful (even for a dreary winter weekend). The staff was great. They...

Every one who works in this hotel is so helpful and friendly. I went for my birthday. When I entered my room there was balloons and a bottle of champagne!!! Seattle coffee in the hallway that was a lovely touch. Only gripe was children above us and the hardwood floors they kept moving the chairs at the table in and...
