I waivered between rating this 3 stars & 4 stars; ideally I'd give it 3.5. It was clean & in a convenient location to most of the attractions in Watkins Glen. Also, there was no check-in or check-out process. Each door has a key pad...More

Hi Doug, My name is Stephanie. My husband and I purchased this motel in 2012. In 1982, it was owned by my husband's grandmother. I believe, when it was under her ownership, it was called the Gorgeous View Motel. When she passed in 2003, it was leased by the property across the highway from us -- the Glen Motor Inn. They placed people in our rooms when their property filled. This was the arrangement for about 10 years. I wonder if you stayed at the Glen Motor Inn, maybe? Kindly, Stephanie
