This was the creepiest experience we've ever had in a hotel. It felt that we were the only guests the night we stayed there. Although this is a large hotel, able to accommodate business gatherings, conventions, large gatherings such as weddings, proms, etc., it has apparently fallen on hard times. We were one of about seven cars in the parking... More

We booked 2 room for 2 nights at $209.00 per night. These were the last 2 rooms in Ithica on parents weekend. The photos on line portrayed the hotel as modern and nice. When we arrived the front desk employees were very friendly. As we opened the door for the hallway leading to the rooms/elevators we were hit with the... More

This hotel is only minutes from Cornell, which makes it extremely convenient. The beds were clean and comfortable, and the bathroom was clean, and the staff is really friendly. There was a small refrigerator which is a must in any hotel we stay at. Now, for the rest of the story. First, the parking lot was filled with craters, not... More

I am generally okay with a budget friendly, clean, basic hotel and am not too picky. This is the first time I've been driven to write a review because it was just that terrible. Horrible smell in some rooms, dirty, dank, and totally disgusting. The only type of person who would find these accommodations acceptable are those aspiring to film... More

We reserved rooms for our wedding, being told that there were rooms that were brand new and renovated. When we got there, the only thing that appeared 'renovated" was the furniture. The parking lot is full of giant pot holes, the hotel is in rough shape, and the rooms were gross. Our room had wallpaper hanging off the walls, holes... More

Other reviews are spot on Just like The Shining but don't judge a book by its cover Renovations needed in the hallways and outdoors but our room was newly renovated and very comfortable. Staff was very nice and called the room ~30 min after check in to make sure we were satisfied and didn't need anything. Pet friendly for an... More

Had read the reviews but I was stuck for a room coming up for my college reunion and making very last minute reservations. Took the plunge and stayed two nights. I was glad I brought a 4 wheel drive for the parking lot. It's a joke. The lobby dates to some other time period. The exterior doors couldn't possibly lock... More

I have seen other reviews mention this place reminds them of the hotel in 'The Shining' and boy are they spot on. With the exception of myself the hotel was completely empty which prompted me to do some exploring. I wandered through the empty hotel, the empty "gym", the full of water but empty pool, the empty "grand ball room"... More

We stayed here cause our alternative was $500 per night. (anything near Cornell University during an event, in this case move-in weekend.) Read reviews before staying here and they were spot on. The outside of the hotel is downright ugly. Parking lot loaded with pot holes. 1st floor had musky odor, peeled wallpaper. We kept going to see if reviews... More
