This looked like the best place in town when I visited, and I was happy with the value I got vs. the room rate. Room was clean, linens all freshly washed. Internet worked. Check In was friendly, I arrived early and they quickly moved the housekeeping crew to my room to finish. Bar was low end with limited liquor assortment... More

I stayed here for my high school reunion and grew up in the area. This hotel is in a not so great neighborhood, but I felt safe the entire time I was there. The rooms are updated and were clean. The staff that worked the reunion were friendly and helpful. I didn't eat at the restaurant since my family was... More

We had purchased the breakfast package while booking the room and when we got to the restaurant in the morning at around 9am and got out at around 11am. the wait to get seated was close to 30min and another 15min to take the order and...

Upon arrival, we found that the only "pet-friendly" rooms they offer have two double beds. Our room was in an older building and smelled very musty,damp and mildewed. It appeared to come from the air-conditioner, even though it was off when we walked in. The humidity in the room was so high that when we payed down the sheets actually... More

I was recently part of a wedding party, and we booked the lounge for our rehearsal dinner and we're told it was okay to bring outside food. When we got there the bartender rudely told us that we couldn't, after it was already okayed, and that we would have to move. We we're put in this tiny meeting room, not... More

We had a terrific experience at this hotel! The entire staff was so pleasant, helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the pool was wonderful! The only complaint I have is that a double sink in the bathroom would be nice.

This is your basic Holiday Inn. There seems to have been a relatively recent renovation. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable for sleeping. The air conditioner was a little loud and seemed to make the room a little damp. Breakfast was pretty mediocre, but I had a coupon for $10 off so it ended up being free. The hotel... More

Staying again at the Holiday Inn in Elmira, we were pleased at how dog friendly they are. There is a $25 fee (one time, covers all dogs), but it was returned to us at checkout. We had the same room, and the staff is very friendly and accomodating. Would recommend this hotel to anyone who travels with their dog. There... More

Passing through town for a funeral, we found the staff to be pleasant and the view of the river from our second floor room nice. Room was very comfortable. Their parking lot foes fill up when a conference is in session though.
