This hotel was great. It is very clean and the staff are wonderful. Mike was there to great us as we came in. The first night we stayed on the city side with two queen beds and the second night we sprang for a suite with a lake view and balcony. Both rooms were very clean. I loved the shower...

Very nice room, clean and all. The price for a night is just a little bit too much. In comparison with other hotels I just don't see the value added that justifies the higher price (e.g. breakfast not included and really slow internet). Apart from the price it's a nice hotel.

Located on Seneca Lake with a beautiful relaxing view this hotel was a lovely location for our special Anniversary get away. Watkins Glen is a nice spot for adults (we do not recommend it for a family with kids). We parked our car at the hotel and did not have to drive for our three day stay. The little town...

Stayed at this hotel Labor Day weekend. Starting with the reservation, I experienced excellent customer service. The same level of service continued upon arrival followed by a phone call after check-in to make sure that everything met my expectations and ended with nightly turn-down service. The room was clean and spacious, and well-appointed with modern fixtures and the perfect amount...

Beautiful upscale hotel on the lake. Balcony room has large shower, king-size bed and wood laminate floor. Overall very clean, crisp and comfortable. Local vineyards and establishments as well as the hotel restaurant provide ample choice for wine-tasting. Several boats available for charter.

We visited over Labor Day weekend for a wedding and enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly and attentive. All of the food was excellent, although they took an unusually long time to get to us (it might have been busier than usual due to all the wedding guests) but it didn't detract from the trip. Great location and...

The hotel room was very large and nicely appointed. The bathroom was tremendous with a very large stand alone shower. There was also a jacuzzi tub. It was nice to sit by the fire-pit late at night, if you could get a seat. The staff friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

Stayed on an August hot buy rate and still feel this rate was too high, unfortunately. Nice hotel in a great location. Perfect for wine touring. Rooms and lake views were excellent! Beds and pillows were not comfortable. Food was really good. Not sure if we'd return.
