Arrived and checked in 2am. Room was not clean and smelled bad. Staff named Nick was terribly rude. The next day when we asked if we can check out at 12pm, all he said was, "Can not. Check out time is 11, and we need to clean the room!" When we complained, he said, "Don't come back." Stay away from... More

Rooms were dated but clean and comfortable. Price for the room was high for the amenities provided. Staff was very friendly. Forgot my glasses in the room at checkout and they immediately called me. Would definitely stay here again.

Arrived a day early to drop son at Cornell for a summer experience. I missed the room block Cornell had at 2 hotels and rooms were booked, cost 300 a night or there was this place at 129. This place is below budget. No vending or ice machines on premises. My room wasn't ready, I had just driven 7 hours... More

I ended up at this motel because the owner would not let my sister cancel the reservation the day before as most hotels/motels do as our father was ill and couldn't make it up. I wouldn't have initially picked this place to stay but it ended up being convenient to Ithaca college where I was attending a gradation. Except for... More

This is a tiny motel in the middle of nowhere, but only 10 minutes from downtown Ithaca. Compared to other hotels in the area, this was economical at $85 (through a 3rd party). It was very clean and cozy...meaning small. It had everything you need: bed, bath, shower, fridge, table, chairs, TV. Aside from have only 10 no-snow channels on... More

Nothing fancy, but clean and cheap. It served its purpose. My only real complaint was the steam heaters sounded like a dragon invasion throughout the night. I will say however, that it was not too loud and all in all its a decent little motel.

Very shady cancellation policy which differs from other motels/hotels. Basically the deadline for canceling a room varies with their whim and can change at any time. If you use a third party travel agency/booking service the fine print becomes even smaller or vanishes altogether. If you expect the usual 24 hour cancellation grace period be very careful as you might... More

Wow...this accommodation is a sad excuse for even a budget motel. Stayed here one night in August, while moving my son to Cornell University. There were three of us in the room. It was a last minute reservation through another online booking site. Initially, we thought it would be fine, however, once in the room, we saw sad and tired... More

I couldn't find a room for under $250/nite in Ithaca two weeks ago so I was a little nervous when this motel was available for $120. I was desperate to visit my kid in Ithaca college so I did. Glad I did! Rooms are spacious along with a kitchenette which is so useful when traveling with a toddler. Number one... More

This is an old-school hotel circa 1990: basic accommodation in clean, reasonably well maintained rooms. The tv was old but the WiFi was good. The room was small but the housekeeping was fine. The worst element was the noisy air conditioning/heat unit. The location is good, a quiet spot about two miles from the Cornell campus and ten minutes drive... More
