My fiancé and I stayed here on our stay to the Finger Lakes area. The pictures you see on the hotel's website are exactly what the hotel looks like in person. The rooms are modern, clean, and a nice size. We had a lovely view of the harbor. The landscaping is nicely manicured with grass and flowers. In the morning...

If you want a good room, room 424 has a very good view of Lake Seneca. The room was immaculate as far as cleanliness and style. The room service was amazing as well as the nice turn down service. The staff was very attentive and polite. The food was very good in the little grill inside the hotel.
