My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in late June '17 while sightseeing in the area. I researched motels online early in the spring and spoke to many proprietors of various local motels. Stephanie was very friendly on the phone about the reservation...More
Another year and another stay at the gorgeous view for work at Watkins Glen. Rooms updated again, always clean and great wifi. Look forward to spending a few nights here every year. Owners are super friendly and run a great motel!

Thank you! Great to hear. I'm glad you like the updates. :-)
I read reviews just like mine and saw the photos and was, to tell you the truth, a little leary. But...it's all true. The view is magnificent.

Hi Doug, My name is Stephanie. My husband and I purchased this motel in 2012. In 1982, it was owned by my husband's grandmother. I believe, when it was under her ownership, it was called the Gorgeous View Motel. When she passed in 2003, it was leased by the property across the highway from us -- the Glen Motor Inn. They placed people in our rooms when their property filled. This was the arrangement for about 10 years. I wonder if you stayed at the Glen Motor Inn, maybe? Kindly, Stephanie
