The only negative was that the check-in time is pretty late (4:000 p.m.) and it took a while before we could get into our room. We did not...

Wonderfully clean hotel, great bedding, and fabulous service! Get a balcony room, it is worth the extra money. Gorgeous view of the lake. The robes are amazing. Great restaurant and bar. We also enjoyed the fire pit and outdoor seating.

This is a beautiful well located for visiting the Finger Lakes area. It is located on Seneca Lake just steps away from restaurants and shopping. The rooms are a bit larger than the average, clean and well-appointed. The village view rooms do get some road noise but if you are used to city life it really isn't enough to bother...
