Glen Motor Inn is amazing. The views cannot be beat. If you are looking for a fancy upscale place, this is not for you. If you want a great getaway with friendly staff and an incredible lake view for a great price, this is where you need to come. My husband booked this for us and we could not have...

Loved the Glen motor Inn. Great location, fantastic view, reasonable rate, and very clean. We saw deer every morning down by the lake. Looks like they are updating the buildings. Wifi would make it 5 star.

This is not a fancy hotel. There are fancy hotels in the area if you want to stay there and pay their price. We feel we got our money's worth at this hotel. The price was right. Admittedly, the place could use some TLC. It has been there a long, long time. But it was clean.....the beds were comfortable.....showers had...

The accommodations are sparse, but the hospitality makes up for it. We had a balcony over Seneca Lake which was a great view. No laundry facility except in town, no hair dryer had to make a run to CVS for one..no iron..so we wore everything wrinkled..but no one seemed to notice. The owners purchased a shower chair for my husband...

This motel offers outstanding views of the lake, and isn't that what you want! The staff was so warm & welcoming, from the reservation process, check in, throughout the stay, right through the check out, they could not have been more pleasant- cudos to Linda, who was very pleasant and a joy to meet in person. Yes I admit, as...

This was a nice place to stop for the night, clean and comfy, but, there was no internet in the rooms, no coffee maker, fridge, or microwave. Landscaping is dead, or, non-existent, cement is crumbling, porch rails are rusty, etc. I expected better for $150 a night. On the plus side, the view of Seneca lake is fabulous, and the...

The motel is old-fashioned and a little tired, with a scarily steep curved driveway that may be one-way but is not marked as such. Very clean, pleasant staff from housekeeping to front desk. Excellent Italian restaurant, attentive and fun wait staff, undaunted by a large group. The view is outstanding. Sitting on the porch looking at the lake is a...

I recently stayed at the Glen Motor Inn with my daughter for a long getaway weekend. Everyone was very friendly and the room was clean. Definitely retro..but that was the fun part about it. There are some small fixes they could make that but that was not a big deal. The view of the lake was absolutely Beautiful. We were...

We stayed one night in the Motor Inn and it was okay. Definitely not top notch hotel, but neither is the price. The best part was the lounge and the incredibly friendly atmosphere. The Bartender was incredibly nice and fun!
