My daughter plays softball for SUNY Cortland. I reserved the Econo Lodge through Hotels.com not expecting much because of it's 3.2 rating. And because of it's slightly odd curb appeal. I reserved a standard room with a King bed. The room was well equipped with a table and chairs, flat screen, desk, microwave, and refrigerator. The room was immaculate, as... More

I stayed here last year and was not impressed. The weather was the fate that returned me. The weather was so bad that I wanted to stay somewhere I could walk to restaurants. The room that they had given me this time was remodeled, updated and clean. Bed was good and the Internet was fair to good. The price was... More

Don't let the '60's exterior of this Econo Lodge fool you. The rooms have been totally redone inside. They are spacious and very nice. Granite counter tops near the sink. Soft carpeting. We will definitely stay here again. Convenient downtown location with Main St. shops just a block away.

I stayed here for a week with my pet. Great service, convenient location, close to downtown. I walked my dog looking at all the historical houses there. It was a pleasant stay. The owners were very professional. I would definitely go back.

NOT worth the money paid- the hotel is run down and the rooms seriously outdated. The ceiling in our room was falling down, the wallpaper peeling. The management was rude and argumentative. Stayed with a pet and pre-booked this hotel on Hotels.com. The pet fee on Hotels.com was NOT what the hotel charges. They charged $15 more pet pet AND... More

I stayed here overnight on my way north on I-81. It's a bit of a ways off the interstate, so the GPS came in handy finding the place. The office staff was pleasant and helpful. The room was alright, dated, but clean. Double bed was comfortable, CRT television, older fridge and microwave worked fine, no coffee maker. Small table with... More

I recently stayed at this motel while visiting Cortland to watch the Jets training camp. I stayed here for one night. When I checked in the person at the front desk gave me a key to an occupied room. Room smelt like smoke and a little musty. If you're expecting a 5-star this is not the place for you. Nicely... More

We were in Cortland, NY in June 2014 for the NYS Senior Games and was looking for a reasonably priced motel located in the City. Wow! Were we surprised... we found just what we were looking for! It is conveniently located in the downtown area of Cortland, just around the corner from Main Street. There are many good reataurants within... More

We stayed here in May of 2014. It was hard to find a hotel at that time because of all of the College Graduation in the area so we did not have much choice. If I could give minus one star I would. The women in the office was pleasant so that was good. Other then that, the rooms smelled... More

This is definitely a one star motel. It's barely adequate. Smells bad outside, is shabby, stained carpets, cleanliness is questionable, pillows are cheap and gave me a crook in the neck. It is definitely overpriced for what you get.
