The intent of my review is to make the point that a no frills motel can make a large sized impression when it is clean and well maintained. Such was the nature of this accommodation. The family who runs it obviously takes great pride in offering value for the guest's dollar.

We traveled to Ithaca for a weekend and stayed at the Embassy Inn Motel. It was a great value compared to other accommodations in the area. The room had everything we needed (Wi-Fi was much better what I've often experienced in larger chains hotels). The place was sparklingly clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was free. I'd... More

The Embassy Inn Motel was a perfect place to sleep and shower. It wasn't fancy but it was clean and convenient to Ithaca. The breakfast was fine with cereal, juice, coffee, bananas and packaged pastries.

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
