Unfortunately while this place has some good points the bad really outweigh them. First the good points....we stayed in a cottage and it was really nice. It was new and clean and the beds were really nice. It had nice appliances and was pretty well stocked. The balcony was large with a nice view of the lake although you also see the hotel below and the road. The AC worked well. Yes the road up was steep but actually not bad. But the parking by the cottages...horrendous. Only one car could fit between the cottages and the other side of #5 where we stayed is totally broken jagged stone. So we had to park right behind the cottage and do like a 15 point turn to get out. It seemed very dangerous. Staying in #5 the neighbors on the next deck warned me and they were right. Everytime someone in any of the cottages use water there is a pump that goes off in #5...what a terrible design. So if anyone uses the bathroom or water in another cottage in the middle of the night or early morning and you're not a heavy sleeper you'll be awakened. I read reviews about the water pressure and thought how bad can it be? The worst of my life. It takes about 10 minutes to get it hot or the right temperature and it's so light. It's so bad that the last morning we opted to leave as early as possible so we could drive home and take a regular shower. But we actually couldn't leave as early as we wanted because we had a dog and you have to wait for them to be in the office to go inspect for damage so you can receive back the $50 cash deposit...yes cash. Now I really appreciate that they are pet friendly, no breed or weight restriction and no pet fee. But the smarter business move would be to just charge a pet fee like most nice hotels do so you're not stuck there until the office opens. Oh and for our cottage they only had one key...the old fashioned kind. They said the one was lost and they hadn't had the chance to make a duplicate. They don't have a good business sense for communication either...the office staff while generally nice gives inconsistent information. They have a disclaimer on their web site that you need to call to find out the cancellation policy...every place else gives it to you with the reservation. You can't get anything firm in print from them even in email...it changes depending on who you talk to. They should be clearer on their site that you can't bring the dog on a boat rental. We went to the tiki bar one night and found it kind of tacky. I like fried cauliflower but it was mainly breading. In fairness, my husband liked the wings. There seemed to be a lot of locals partying but thankfully we couldn't hear it from the cottage. The hotel did not look appealing...the large shared deck is where people sat with coolers. It's a shame that such nice cottages...except the loud nonstop pump in #5...are so ruined by the rest. They would do way better with better management. We won't stay there again.

Keep in mind you're on a hillside but well worth it for the room with a view. Stayed here 3 nights the 1st week in August and was very pleased. Room was nice, clean and comfortable having everything needed from a microwave to a small fridge. All staff were friendly and helpful. We will be back to enjoy this place again sometime.

I stayed at the hotel for two nights on a recent visit to Watkin Glen State Park. We had a great time. The room was clean and comfortable with needed amenities such as a microwave and fridge. In addition, the beds were a comfy memory foam. Maid service was offered daily which is a plus due to COVID. Don't be hesitant to visit the tiki bar. Its great fun with a gorgeous view

The cottage was okay, but very overpriced for what you get. I wouldn’t recommend the hotel. I honestly feel like I didn’t get what they advertised. positives: Clean bathroom, nice towels, nice receptionist, nice deck negatives: Broken ice machine (usually no big deal but we were going fishing and need ice for the cooler-had to buy it)stained carpet, very few utensils, no coffee, a beat up grill, beat up furniture, and an awful driveway( mentioned on other reviews) . View- You do see Seneca Lake but you also see the motel, parking area, & road because those right in front of you Tiki bar- Was closed-never any mention that it wouldn’t be open I gave it 3 stars because it’s not a dump, but I wouldn’t recommend it.

Stayed over the Columbus Day weekend for a getaway for my wife and I. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Friendly staff. Rooms have a great view of Seneca Lake from the balcony. The only reason I didnt give this place 5 stars is the balcony itself is shared amungst all guests. Each room has 2 chairs and a small table. A barrier wall to seperate the balcony for each room would be great. Unfortunately because common sense and common courtesy are not that common now days some people need that barrier. A group of women were in the rooms on both sides of us. One women in particular thought everyone on the balcony needed to hear her endless loud chatter. There was another couple spending the weekend that also could not believe her endless loud conversations of her lifes story and commented, a sound barrier on the balcony would be great after the chatterbox went inside. Overall it was a nice motel. We would recomend you stay there when traveling to Watkins Glen. Just hope the chatterbox isn't there that weekend.
