The owner is very personable and anxious to please. Clean with a nuker and mini frig. Great view as one looks down on the lake and up at the eastern side wineries. About a 20 minute ride to the Glass Museum. Park one's car at the doorway. Door lock has a combo tied to phone number so no need to...

We stayed here one night after seeing Watkins Glen before heading north to Canandaigua. It is conveniently located to Watkins Glen and the wineries on Seneca lake. This property is older but nicely remodeled and maintained. It was exceptionally clean. The room was spotless. The staff we met were friendly, courteous and helpful. The view from the front of the...

Last minute stay, great price for very clean roomy accommodations. Appears to be new or recently remodeled. Simple check in with passcode, I didn't even need to go into an office. Based on reviews of other establishments in this price range this is definitely the place to go.

The car a mare one yard from the room's door, the beautiful view of southern Seneca Lake (especially in the afternoon), the hot shower after a cold day of tracking, the super clean room, the way the host answered our questions and explained us all we wanted to know, everything. In...

There are many outdated 1950ish motels dotting the Seneca Lakes shore. Gorgeous View is newly remodeled, meticulously clean and quiet. The view of the lake is stunning with chairs provided to sit outside. Snacks in the room were a nice touch. This motel is perfect for a short stay as long as you are not looking for luxury. I would...

My husband planned this trip for Valentines Day. It was a great motel and the price you can't beat! Had a great view and a wonderful location in the heart of everything. Room was very clean and we will be going back! Owners were very accommodating and friendly as well
