My family and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Cortland for one night on our way to New York City. The check-in was fast and the front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Within 15 minutes of checking in we had a call from staff just checking to make sure that we were satisfied and happy with our... More

My major is hospitality so I knew how toilsome this field is. Yesterday midnight, my parents and me just be the walk-in as we came across the storm on the way. When I came in this hotel, I am caught by their quality and professional service. All employees are very friendly and enthusiastic. Thanks for paying attention that waiting for... More

Stayed here in April 2014 while visiting Syracuse (~1 hr drive) and Ithaca (~40 min drive). Exactly as advertised. Well managed and maintained with convenient access to I-81. Interior looks and feels modern and brand new. Friendly staff who was always willing to help. Comfortable beds, good-sized rooms, excellent water pressure in shower. Rooms aren't well insulated so if you... More

We stayed one night during a hockey tournament. Very clean hotel. Very good free hot breakfast in the morning. The area for the breakfast is very welcoming with lots of couches, chairs tables, large screen TV and a fireplace. Our room, beds and bathroom were very comfortable. There is a Perkins restaurant right across the parking lot if you want... More

I travel and stay in many hotels, all national brands for business. This property has excellent staff, from front desk to housekeeper and breakfast attendant. Coffee was always fresh and available all day and night. Room was very clean and well maintained. The parking lot and driveway was cleared of snow almost hourly.

My 10 year old daughter and I stayed here the night before a local event. This brand new, perfectly maintained hotel was such a welcome surprise after a long drive! Every part of the stay was excellent. We would definitely stay here again.

Visited the Cortland area for a friend's wedding. We searched the Internet for favored hotels and selected the Holiday Inn Express based on the excellent reviews. Was pleasantly surprised at this modern, new building and its amenities. Close to Route 81 and Cortland center. Four stories of clean and modern rooms (at least the one we had) with comfortable beds,... More

As you might expect at a Holiday Inn, everything was quite standard. Good, comfortable beds, very clean room and a decent shower. I have forgotten my shaving kit and within 5 minutes of calling the front desk, the attendant was at my door with a razor and sample-size can of barbasol. An decent buffet-style breakfast was included, but I didn't... More

My first time at a Holiday Inn Express. While always having been a big fan or Hampton Inns, I am now adding Holiday Inn Express to my list of favorites. I chose this location for a one-night stay during a quick visit to Cortland, what a great surprise. The property is spotless! The lobby was modern, yet warm and homey.... More

We normally break up our drives to NYC/NJ by staying in the Holiday Inn Express Syracuse Fairgrounds but they were full due to the State Fair. We decided to go a bit further and stay in Cortland. This hotel is excellent all around. Only 2 years old and everything looks brand new. Staff are attentive from the moment you walk... More
