I have been staying at the Seneca Clipper Inn for years while attending the Deck the Hall's Wine Tasting Event on Seneca Lake every November. The Inn is not as modern or updated as some of the hotels out there but is it very clean and very accommodating. John the Manager and his wife are warm and wonderful people and...

A small place. Proprieters were very nice and helpful. A bit noisy in our end room near the street. Neat and comfortable. We could walk to a lot of places in town. On the Main Street, so conveniently located.

Really nice people, affordable rooms. Can walk to Curly’s restaurant. Internet weak, good for mobile coverage, stop start for lap top Internet, not good. Refrig Microwave in most rooms, good stuff.

Check in and out was pleasant and quick!!! The room was clean - agree with other reviews thinking they should invest in better pillows (or, bring your own). The bathroom door in my room needed a simple adjustment (just pop the trim off and move it) because it doesn't close. the hanging flower baskets around the motel were lovely and...

At our journey to Niagara Falls we wanted to have a stop with a nice activity. This hotel is within walking distance of Watkins Glen State Park and 15 minute walk to the lake. The rooms are clean, proper beds, but no too big. The owner also owns the Budget Inn Motel across the road, where guests can also have...

Small room but clean with some nice touches, like nautical bathroom knobs, mirror and toilet seat top. Totally need some fabric softener in their laundry because the towels were like sandpaper! I saw a different review about seeing a bug. We didn't see any. The wifi was hit and miss.

Front desk manager very polite, room was very clean and well maintained. Reasonably priced for a popular tourist town especially during a prime time fall weekend. Within walking distance of local shopping, restaurants and park. Recommend!

We had stayed here about 8 years ago and had no problems so we decided to book here again for this visit. The rooms have been remodeled since our previous stay. This is a not a plush resort but we found the bed to be very comfortable and for the small amount of time we spent in the room we...
