NOT worth the money paid- the hotel is run down and the rooms seriously outdated.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.

The place is sub-par as a facility, very dated. However, the carpet was fairly new, the bed was better than average, and the place was clean. Not a bad night sleep although not plushly wonderful. I would stay again if necessary, but the price should be lower for the net effect to be any better. Overpriced college town market not... More

We stayed at this hotel from July 17-24, 2013. Our stay with the Shah's was excellent. The owners are very welcoming and friendly. The hotel was very clean and the breakfasts were adequate. We thank them for their hospitality. Harold & Sharon Knolls, Texas

We stayed there also in Jan and the location was great! The lady that was there at night was wonderful; however, the lady that checked us out in Jan and in June was rude! My husband complained about the bed in Jan. We both had many sleepless nights on our visit in June as the bed was so uncomfortable. We... More
