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

Holiday Inn Express continues to surprise me. The accommodations are much more "upscale" than Holiday Inn of the past. The Cortland Holiday Inn Express has especially nice bathrooms, which are very spacious and polished--much like Hilton Boston Logan Airport or the like. The furnishings are all top-notch. The breakfast was as expected--though a bit slow in keeping up with the... More

I have yet to be disappointed with a Holiday Inn Express, very consistent no matter the town. This location is convenient to SUNY Cortland and major highways. Our stay was very quiet and comfortable and the staff were very helpful.

A great place to stay. Consistent with the level of service associated with many other Holiday Inn Express' I have stayed in. Clean rooms, modern amenities, nice bathrooms and showers.
