This Motel was perfect for our needs. Basic - nice - clean - convenient! After a day at the wineries it was nice that it was walking distance to downtown and the restaurants, bars and shops. (and ice-cream shops)

I tried hard to like this motel. It's convenient. The staff was very friendly and the room was clean although very 1950's. My biggest problem was the heat.. It made a very loud rattling noise when it turned on 17 seconds, really. The toilet also ran all night. The room had an outside entrance and the door had gaps where...

My Villager Motel experience was most pleasant. I stayed here while conducting business in the local area. I found my room to be clean, very comfortable, and the customer service I received was very hospitable. I would stay here again and maybe next time enjoy some of the local area, considering the location is very near all sorts of shops,...

Booked here on a last minute trip to see fall foliage, read the reviews so was prepared to not expect much. Although it definitely is showing its age it was clean and staff was friendly. Location is great for exploring what Watkins Glen has to offer. Our room rate averaged about $130 per night if you stayed 3 nights, so...

Do not waste your time or money here . These rooms have indoor / outdoor carpeting , outdated dirty bathrooms . This hotel looks like it is from the 1960s . They might think it's clean . That is the scary part. The beds are worn out and sag in the middle evident when you walk in the room ....

I was in the older 2 story area . Room was horrible . The pillows were thin and rock hard . This is the first hotel I ever had trouble sleeping. Would not go here if you want a comfortable room . There are many better choices.

All guests are welcome to check their rooms before registering. We ask all guests upon departing how their stay was in case there is something that needs fixing.. And, we would never make a guest stay in a horrible room. Guests love our heated indoor pool , free continental breakfast in our new cafe room off our new lobby. We...

Everyone was very cordial. The room was spacious and comfortable. Very clean. It is right in the town, once you park your car you could walk anywhere. Very convenient to restaurants and a nice walk to Lake Seneca where you can sit and enjoy the scenery. It is especially nice at night with all the lights.

The place is a rip off. Paying top dollar for loud rooms with indoor/outdoor carpet. Rooms are out dated. Should have known better when I saw the building looks like it is going to fall in on itself. Front desk had no hospitality skills and were rude. SAVE YOUR MONEY!!! And go anywhere else.

After reading reviews I was nervous. We stayed in the Manor Brass room. The house was charming and very clean. Our room was nice and big with newly renovated bath. Walking distance to everything!! Highly recommended!! Will stay again. Wish bed was king bed but not a deal breaker. Free continental breakfast provided. Basic but good.

Completely separate and distinct from the motel. Historic former home of the person the Village was named after. Cozy and welcoming. Very limited availability. Well worth the cost. Centrally located. Just off the .main drag. Park off_street the entire Downtown is a brief walk. The first choice of this race fan!!!!!!!!
