The property is on a beautiful location overlooking the lake,but it is old we almost walked out. It needs some updating.

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This property is in a run-down and decrepit state. This was my first visit to Watkins Glen and I had no idea that this motel was many years past its peak. It felt as if the aged and yellowed walls and ceiling were caving in. The door, bathroom, and walls themselves were dirty. The grout and corners in bathroom filthy. The shower was either scalding hot or if adjusted was a trickle of water. The furniture was so scarred and mutilated looking I didn't want to touch it. There was no refrigerator in the room and no hair dryer. The air conditioner was an old fashioned window one that was almost on the floor and seemed impossible to adjust. The "balcony" was a stained and sticky cement floor with two yellowed and flimsy plastic chairs. The blankets and bedspreads were scary to touch. The only thing I can say to sum it up is to quote Bette Davis..."What a dump!"

3/5 Okay

Traveled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Amenities
We thought the staff was really nice upon checking in and out. We also received coffee in the morning which was nice. We were upset that neither the pool, bar or restaurant was open. We had planned to use all of the amenities and wish someone had told us when we booked they would not be available. We would have gone further into town where we could walk to these types of things as we came off a wine tour both days and did not want to drive around all night. Plus we really wanted to sit out at the pool during the day. $370 for 2 nights with just a room was a bit steep without all the extra amenities.

The location is excellent overlooking the lake. Property needs some repairs on balcony and needs an overall upgrade of the facilities in the room. Everything is kept clean but very old and outdated furniture.
