We stayed one night. It was fairly clean except for the carpeting..I would not go barefoot in this place, but I do not do that anywhere I stay. It was quiet and comfortable. I would not want to stay here for more than a night or two.

Made resv. Days in advance. Room odor. Asked for a different room, owner requested up charge. Owners attitude was mean and nasty. We wanted to work things out but he verbally attacked us. As a result there was almost a physical confrontation resulting with us asking for a refund. We called another Lodge and were delightfully accepted which also resulted...

Our stay was excellent with a great location and able to unload in front of room. The grounds were well kept. Housekeeping does a great job and are more than willing to help you with anything you need to make your stay memorable. The Continental breakfast was adequate to start your day early. Jim,Bob,and Lacey were very pleasant people taking...

The Longhouse is pet friendly and the staff is guest friendly. Good view of the water and convenient to Watkins Glen. Rooms are small compared to today's standards but are complete with all amenities needed. Especially like the ability to load/unload directly in front of your unit. Very clean and the grounds are well maintained. Cont'l b'fast each morning. When...

I've stayed at the Longhouse at least three times over the years but no more. The rooms are dated, musty, and on my last visit, I needed to have housekeeping come three times before gross things were vacuumed up off the rug.

Terrible hotel. Very over priced for what you get. The air conditioning wasn't on when we arrived. They had the windows open with the heat blowing in. The air conditions and room both outdated. The shag carpet felt crunchy under my feet. I believe my wheezing was from mold and mildew. They did have an adequate free breakfast and pool...

Old school motor lodge overlooking seneca lake. Clean and comfortable located close to many Watkins Glen attractions. Very friendly staff. Good value and worth considering when looking for accommodations in the area.

Wish I paid more attention to the reviews! Dark, musty odor! Breakfast on Father's Day was 2 1/2 hrs late! Rooms were very dated. It was very hot and the odor from the air conditioner was horrendous! Legionnaires disease waiting to happen! All and all maintenance was not good! Ok if you were desperate! Other than that don't waste your...

I stayed here for a long weekend. The proximity to the town was great. It was also relatively close to the Watkins Glen International race track. The room was very large but the beds were a bit creaky. This motel is not a modern facility at all. It really is a throwback to an earlier era. What made it really...
