Everything was very clean
The only thing I didn’t like was the staff. When we first arrive, we were not greeted, we were standing there for quite a few minutes, and we were not acknowledged.
The hotel was clean and very well decorated. The staff was friendly. There is so much to do in the area dan the view from the room was worth every penny spent!
Great location, excellent staff and facilities
The property is excellent The room was excellent
The cost of lodging was on the high end of what I would expect to pay , the rates could be adjusted lower , especially this time of year
Cleanliness, comfort, ambience and staff are all 5 star! Even better than I thought from photos and description.
No complaints, none!!!
Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel is a beautiful resort that earns its name as a "harbor hotel". This hotel has won numerous awards over the years, including being named USA Today's Best Waterfront Hotel. This is a Four-Diamond AAA-rated hotel that sits on the incredible gorgeous Seneca Lake. Many visitors choose Harbor Hotel for its access to the beautiful body of water and all the opportunities it provides. However, Harbor Hotel is also located in the middle of the Finger Lakes wine country, which makes it a popular place to stay for those looking to do some tastings and tours of the nearby vineyards.
There are two separate restaurants located on-property here for guests to take advantage of. The first is the Blue Pointe Grille. The Blue Pointe Grill is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In the mornings, guests can get their day started as early as 6:30 am. Breakfast items include an eggs benedict, several flavors of Finger Lakes omelets, strawberry french toast, and an Italian sausage skillet. In the evenings the restaurant serves plates like mushroom-stiffed pork tenderloin, Chilean sea bass, chicken Milanese, grilled swordfish, and semi-boneless duck with andouille sausage risotto. The second is the Coldwater Bar, which is meant more as a destination for great drinks and conversation than a full dinner.
The rooms at Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel are comfortable and spacious. Some of the amenities that guests can expect to experience as part of their stay here include complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi, a coffee station on each floor, a state-of-the-art fitness center, 24-hour room service, indoor heated pool, jacuzzi, and an on-site business center should guests need it.
