Rooms were clean and the staff was very helpful! Very near great restaurants in Watkins Glen and also in Ithaca (we ate at Moosewood Kitchen). I left my earrings behind and they were kind enough to mail them to me.

We were pleasantly surprised with the Longhouse Lodge Motel. The carpets were brand new, just installed the day we stayed. The setting is gorgeous, you have a view of the lake down below. The grounds have a pool, gazebo, and a BBQ setup for your vegan BBQ enjoyment. The room was

This great place is just a short drive from downtown Watkins Glen (WG). It is just far enough away to avoid the 2018 downtown revitalization construction noise. Room #12 was clean & comfortable with two full sized beds. The bathroom & carpeting was very clean and the beds super

First time ever - bedbug bites. Will not be back, ever. I only wore flip flops in the room because the carpet was yucky. sorry to say I have not positive to relate. The rooms need a major overhaul, smaller furniture, better mattresses - bathrooms need to be remodeled.

This review is totally false. I had inspections by state and by an exterminator here right after their stay. They found no signs of bed bugs in any rooms. There are bed bug covers on all box springs, mattresses, and pillows to help prevent them. These people had friends staying at the Longhouse Manor B & B and wanted to move up there after their first night at the Motel for the other two nights they were here. Two members of my staff heard them laughing and saying " we got our way to the Manor" while they were sitting in the gazebo located right outside our office at the Motel. They had liquor bottles and beer cans in all the common areas when they moved up to the Manor and I had other guests complain about them. They thew up on the carpet in the room at the Motel the first night. Perhaps that is why they wore flip flops? The beds are new and very comfortable. Please read other reviews from responsible guests about our establishment. Do not fall into the trap of listening to people who just want to get their way no matter how. We take reviews from our guests very seriously and use them to provide a comfortable clean room. Out staff is excellent and go above and beyond to make sure our guests enjoy their stay. We have made many changes based on peoples reviews but please do not believe someone who is just out to get their way. The internet is a very great and powerful tool when used by responsible people. It is a very harmful and destructive tool in the hands of irresponsible people.

My sister and I stayed in room #9 for 2 nights. We spent as little time in the room as possible.The room smelled musty. It had two queen beds. Mine was extremely soft. The green carpet has seen better days. It had a huge black long bureau/ desk that took up too much space. It

I am so sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. The room actually has two full size beds in the room and not two queens. I'm sorry the decorations were not to your taste. The decorations are in our rooms to give our guests a feeling of home. Some of the carpets are older but are very clean, we have our own professional steam cleaner on site. We are in the process of replacing older carpets as needed as of this writing. You made your reservation online through one of the booking engines. They all get commissions for using their services and they deserve their commissions. If you would like a better rate for a room, I suggest you call the establishment directly. Most of the time you will get the best rate this way. We do hope you will come back and see us when you are in the area again. You will see that all I have mentioned is true on your next visit.
