The hotel rooms are somewhat dated with no art on walls. Some are better than others. This last visit, mine was decent . It was clean . They have recently put in some flat screen TVs . Good location, great bar (Tavern Room), good restaurant. I have never stayed in cabins. I feel price is fair. Service at front desk... More

We recently stayed at the Seneca Lodge in an A-Frame with another couple. We had thought we were upgrading from the actual motel rooms. It was the worst accomodations I have ever had. The dwelling had a musky odor upon arrival. The smoke alarm did not have any batteries, the mattress and pillow in our room were like cement. Our... More

We stayed in the motel part of this facility after hearing good things about the cabins which, after our stay, I seriously doubt. The motel room smelled musty and there was no phone or shampoo/cream rinse. The bed was comfortable but this is really a pretty crappy place.

Nothing says the Glen more than this place, and is the meeting place for whatever is going on in the village. The rooms are clean and set in great wooded surroundings, but be aware, this is a motel catering to the sporting crowd. The amenities in the motel rooms are basically limited to a TV. The main lodge has a... More

Stayed during a Winery tour of Seneca Lake. good value for the money, clean rooms, good base of operations, can arrange for bus tours to pick you up at the Lodge. They serve breakfast and dinner only. No reservations for dinner, great Prime Rib and Ribs Saturday night. Regular breakfast daily.

In reading other reviews on here, most state the Seneca Lodge is rustic but clean. Although the area is beautiful, unless you want to spend the night in a room with stained carpet, sheets that are less than crisp and clean, no phone, a clock was just tossed on the bed and not plugged in, furniture from the 1960's (our...

We stayed here a couple of nights and it was ok for the price. The bed was uncomfortable and the pillows were dreadful. Other than that, if you are into glorified camping, I recommend the area. It was more like a kids summer camp set up. There was a "scent" I would call it in room and bedding that made... More
