Went to the motel for the Indycar race in September. The hotel was out of downtown and located about 1-1.5 miles away. Each room seems a little different. Our room was clean even if a little dated. It was extremely convenient to the track and also to restaurants. Breakfast looked a little sparse however I had oatmeal, bagel and peanut...

Stayed here for the first time, we needed a place to park our car hauler for a couple of days after being at the track so we could sightsee and go wine tasting. As most are, an older property but meticulously maintained. Great views of Seneca Lake. Close to Watkins Glen and Seneca Lake wineries and breweries. Met great people...

I will agree that the view is nice, the location is convenient and room was clean. However the decor is dated and the room is uncomfortable. There was a 4 inch hole in the bedspread, the door deadbolt was not functional and the mattress was hard with pancake pillows. The east side window did not have a blind so the...

Returned to Lakeside for the Glen's Vintage weekend and ready to book for next year! Tony knows how to please his guests and the accommodations are extremely clean! The resort is quiet and a lovely view of the lake. The staff is friendly and very accommodating! Miss Jimmy though! ;-(

we stayed 3 nights over Labor Day weekend, in town for the Indy Car race. The room was basic, but clean. It was nice to have a fridge and microwave. We used both. The owner, Tony, is friendly and attentive, but it's view is what makes this place. Absolutely gorgeous!

I am a regular. Complete accommodations, immaculately clean, a gorgeous allee to the Lake and a welcoming host: I've been returning for something like four years, every time I'm in Watkins Glen. When you go, look for Katie the Cat...she is reserved the first time she meets you, but an exceptionally loud purr-er on subsequent meetings.

We stayed in one of the cabins (make sure to specifically request of you want to stay) and "cabin" doesn't really describe it well. More like a spacious, well appointed, and quiet hotel room with a vaulted ceiling and a skylight. The room was very clean and Tony, the manager was very attentive to our needs (such as a late...

We stayed at Lakeside Resort twice now and honestly wouldn't stay anywhere else in Watkins Glen: clean comfortable rooms with good beds, great views and unique ability to rent a cabin if you would like one. All short distance to all the attractions. Awesome place.
