How to Choose Between Hotels vs. Vacation Rentals in the Finger Lakes 

Personalized Service 

By now, everyone has stayed in a vacation rental and a hotel. So, you know that the booking, check-in, and checkout experience is much more personalized at a hotel than at a vacation rental. Plus, the staff at the Hammondsport Hotel has received the TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Award. This recognition honors hotels that meet the highest customer service standards, consistently receiving positive reviews and ratings from travelers! Here’s what one guest had to say about her experience: 

“The hotel is very clean. Melody and Beth do an excellent job manning the free breakfast bar. The rest of the staff were courteous and helpful in making recommendations for restaurants. It’s about an hour away from Letchworth State Park, a must-visit in addition to nearby wineries. Highly recommend!” 

Complimentary Housekeeping 

Another benefit of staying in a hotel instead of a vacation rental is that there aren’t any added cleaning fees. The average cleaning fee for a rental property ranges between $50-$80 but can be even more expensive than that. When you stay at the Hammondsport Hotel, our housekeeping staff will clean your room and turnover your sheets daily for no added cost!
