Watkins Glen lodging recommendations?
Hi,

Wanted to see if anyone had recommendations for lodging for Watkins Glen.

Thanks,

Chris:
Depending on your wallet and level of comfort you've got:
The Falls In Montour Falls about 10 min from WGI
It's clean, very basic and close.
At the top end of the $$ scale you've got The Harbor Hotel in Watkins Glen about 15 minutes from WGI. I'd say it's sort of on par with a Ritz Carlton. Has a full service restaurant/bar is at the foot of Seneca Lake. Walking distance to anything that's worth walking to in Watkins Glen.

If your a Marriott guy you've got a few Marriott properties in Horse Heads and Corning, these are about 30 min from WGI

There's a few more places like the Seneca Lodge but that's a bit too rustic for me. And I know a few people have had good luck with Air BNB's.
If you want more detailed info feel free to PM me.

I was following this thread but looks like it won’t matter because The Glen already sold out for some run groups! Wow - first day! Is that a record? Crossing fingers for the waitlist to pan out. Lodging options look great.

Yeah it sold out with a quickness. I'm going to try out the falls since I'm riding solo that weekend.

Even if you don't stay at the Seneca Lodge (I do whenever I can), check out the bar there with all the racing and other memorabilia. That and the friendly bar staff (they remember me from year to year--don't ask why) and the pretty good food in the restaurant should not be missed.

I have a room at the Seneca Lodge with two queen beds. Happy to split with someone attending WGI in a couple of weeks. PM me here.
