We have been staying at this motel for 20 years.We have never been disappointed in the care we have been given. All of the staff is more than pleasant and eager to please. The grounds are amazing with a beautiful view of Seneca Lake. The motel itself is old but has been updated and very clean. The restaurant is basic...

The atmosphere in this restaurant is more of a family setting and feel. Some of the tables are set for multiple families at the same table. It's a little tight with a packed house but the fact that they were packed is a plus. I had the Turkey Dinner Special. It was Delicious!!! Only wish they gave more cranberry sauce....

While traveling along Route 14 we happened upon the sign for Rainbow Cove and decided to give it a try - we were not disappointed. A throw back to a much simpler time of vacationing (reminded me of my childhood vacationing with my Grandmother in Pennsylvania) - it was wonderful. The rooms are not fancy or modern, but they are...

We respect rules are rules but not sure why during a stay where I didn't get a shower in and our adult son was in the shower when all water was lost, you chose to charge extra for a delayed check out when my husband was stranded without transportation. I hope you paid your cleaning staff the extra money you...

we are sorry that you didn't respect our rule that check out is 11:00. If you had packed up your things and got out of the room so housekeeping could've cleaned the room for the next guest that were waiting for that room you would have not been charged the extra 20dollars. you should have asked for a late check...

We were at the Garlic festival and it was so crowded there we didn't want to stay and eat, so we took a drive and my husband found this motel / restaurant on Seneca Lake. It didn't look like anything special but looks are deceiving. We went into the restaurant and it reminded me of an old time resort up...

Our first time here and won't be our last. Very peaceful atmosphere. Nothing fancy, but clean. Bonfire every night, docking for your boat, games for kids, swimming pool, gazebo, cute restaurant and great people.

My honey and I discovered the Rainbow Cove restaurant last year and felt so peaceful.😎 This time we went there intent on getting booked! Lucky us, there were 2 slots open in July. We were so happy to be part of the evening ritual of gathering at the campfire, chatting while the sun colorfully disappeared over lovely Seneca Lake. Breakfast...

This was our first trip to Rainbow Cove and it surely will not be our last! What a wonderful family owned place to stay. The staff was very friendly and the establishment was immaculate. The view on Seneca Lake was amazing and the kayaks we rented from Rainbow Cove were so much fun. I especially enjoyed the bonfire with other...

While traveling through the finger lakes area decided to try out this spot. On location there are motel type rooms available, a quiet and tasteful restaurant, a game room section, a lakeside sitting area, pool and a great place to have a walk and relax. The rooms are nice and simple, well kept, maintained, comfortable, quiet, wifi available and TV....
