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...

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...

We rented a two bedroom cabin Sept 14. Very comfortable and so clean. We love the area and dinner at the lodge was fabulous. The special that night was their ribs. You need to split them as they are hugh.

My boyfriend and I have stayed here many times over the past 6 years while driving the nearby track that is one of the most iconic tracks in America. The owners, Brett and Mary, are the most gracious hosts imaginable! Although the rooms are not the high end caliber of the Harbor, down the street, the price is right for...

The Seneca Lodge is very well located in Watkins Glen if you are planning to go to the State Park or the race track. We were here for the Vintage Auto Festival in town on a Friday. Unfortunately, the Lodge requires a 3-day minimum stay during this time. The Lodge dining room and bar have great nostalgia from racing and...

This place is literally right across the street from the entrance to Watkins Glen state park. The location of this place is absolutely perfect. My fiancé and I stayed in the motel part and the room was very clean. Definitely nothing fancy with the room though - it was standard and small looking. But it was still perfect - the...

Review is for the Restaurant: We travelled here with a group and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. Our server was terrific! High energy, great personality. The atmosphere and history of the Lodge / restaurant is great. Food was good. We went on a Friday night and they had excellent entertainment in the lounge. I highly recommend a stop...
