This is a small, simple hotel set on a hillside overlooking Seneca Lake. We were concerned at first because it looked rather old. But we found that the room (#22) was very clean, the bed (king size) was quite comfortable, and the bathroom had been renovated. The views from the large window, as well as from the outside wrap-around balcony,... More

This is my favorite place to stay in Seneca Lake. It is affordable, well taken care of, the new administration is awesome. A family owned piece of paradise . If you like a combination of modern and rustic, quietness and accessibility to Glen falls, wineries, local farmers and great local eateries, this is your place. Jonathan and his family are... More

This is a small place with a great view, right on Seneca Lake. The owner is very friendly and was very accommodating and helpful. Unfortunately, we had to cut our trip short, but we would go back. It is not fancy, but our room (32) was nice. There is a porch off the room that looks out over the lake.

If you're looking to relax by or frolic in exceptionally clean Seneca Lake, but you don't want to rent a house, I believe that staying at the Finger Lakes Waterfall Resort is about your only and best option. I really enjoyed it. To call it a resort is a bit of a stretch, though. If you are the kind of... More

Yes the motel is older but the accommodating staff and the gorgeous view of Seneca Lake makes it well worth it. We had a private deck with a table and chairs overlooking Seneca Lake. We watched the sunset from there, and when in the room our windows overlooked the lake as well. Room 32. Highly recommend. Not all rooms face... More

We came back to the Waterfall resort to Siena our 5th anniversary. Last time we were in a cottage, this time in the lodge. Absolutely beautiful view of Seneca Lake from our front and deck. This is an older venue, I think Justin the owner told it was originally built in the 1930 's. So it's not as soundproof as... More

Just stayed the weekend at this hotel. The owner is very nice and after we checked in, stopped by with his golf cart to help us take things to our room. The room we stayed in was rustic. Older bedding and furniture. It had a mini fridge which is great. Shower had very good water pressure. You are paying for... More

It's near a waterfall which is by a highway, so, uh, the waterfall is kind of pretty? They do have canoes and kayaks to take it, which is great. We didn't do that because after one night we just wanted to get away as quickly as possibly. The room was filthy. There were hairs on the pillows and towels and... More

These guests made a reservation, paid a 50% non-refundable deposit for a 3 night weekend stay in July. They decided to cancel the reservation on the day of check-in. They were not granted a refund for their nonrefundable deposit. According to our records, they did not stay here, not even for one night! I suppose that is why this review... More

It's often hard to find lodging in the Finger Lakes and we just happened upon the Waterfall Resort - a nice surprise. Our room overlooked Seneca Lake - beautiful! Our room was also large with a bathroom that obviously had been renovated - all new! We were also delighted to have a path to follow to see the waterfalls (trickling... More

It is difficult to rate this place. As stated, it is run-down looking, but is in the midst of seemingly do-it-yourself repairs We actually have had a good stay here, and appreciated the funkiness, but some may not. The other reviews are right on. We were warmly greeted and found our host helpful and low key. Room 31 is fine... More
