My best friend Deb & I celebrated our 50th birthday in wine country @ The Show Boat Motel and had the time of our life!!!! The owners John & Peggy were fabulous hosts and their staff was marvelous ~ Stacey, Brandi, Jeremy, Nicole and Brenda ~ just to name a few treated us like family and accomdated our every need above and beyond the call of duty. We met a regular there, Roz who was from Buffalo & back for her 4th time this year and had a wonderful time with her as well. Food and service was great. Short drives to a variety of adventures. Will definitley be returning to this deflightful motel with its delightful owners and staff!!!
My fiancé used to vacation on Seneca lake she badly wanted to return. We decided to do it this year for our anniversary. After some searching we found the two hotels, Rainbow Cove and the Showboat. I was a bit skeptical of the Showboat because of the reviews (which you will see as you scroll down), but once there on the water they had the only rooms actually on the water (which is exactly what my fiancé wanted).
We stayed in room 6 the first night. The motel clerk did not advertise the room’s amenities (there were few) but they did talk of the view and that’s what she wanted. The balcony was quaint and the view breathtaking. Whatever the room lacked the view made up for!
We left undecided on if we would be staying on the lake two nights, after a long day at the Windmill we decided to return. They had no lake side rooms vacant so we opted for a Jacuzzi room (let me tell you, that was awesome!) The room was spacious, the Jacuzzi spectacular, the room had a little refrigerator and a little coffee pot.
We had dinner the second night at the restaurant, best choice of my life. We both ordered the rib eye steak and it is the best I ever had anywhere! We ran into John during our stay, multiple times. John was very accommodating to my fiancé (she can be and was quite demanding), there was no disrespect or rude behavior on his part. He was very friendly and there was always a smile on his face. She was happy so I was happy J
I spoke with him at length over the steak I had eaten. He told me where he orders it from and why its so good, he didn’t appear hurried or bothered at all.
All of our servers were very gracious and the other guests that were there were friendly. Being a bar there was the local crowd both nights but there was nothing inappropriate, they were all very friendly and the bar closed both evenings around 11:30-12am.
My fiancé would recommend the rooms on the water and myself; definitely the Jacuzzi rooms! I plan on going again and again in the months and years to come!
Without a doubt John and Peggy ar ethe most ignorant and arrogant Inn Keepers I have ever run across. After traveling in 40 states and 4 countries I have never had as poor treatment as this place. These people act as though they are doing you a favor taking your money. Food and service is substandard. Much better choices nearbye.
The owner should be a little more respectful to paying customers. Speaking to adults in a very patronizing tone is not only rude, but extremely unproffesional. I would recommend an attitude adjustment if they desire further business.
On a better note, our server was very friendly and polite! She was the best part of our experience!
My husband and myself have gone the last 15 years. We will be there again this year. We go for NASCAR weekend. We have the same room each year and we love it! We are guaranteed the same room each year without fail. Peggy and John are great hosts.
