Hotel was nice-clean and spacious. Quick drive to get to Ithaca College which is where we were headed but also close to Cornell. Close to airport as well. Nearby shopping center makes it easy to grab a snack. Fire burning in the lobby fireplace was a welcomespot of warmth!

A very generic hotel with very generic rooms. I’ve previous stayed at the Statler (which is nearby but actually inside the grounds of Cornell University). I would recommend you try that instead if you’re coming to Ithaca.

As quiet as could be, with a king bed in perfect condition and a sofa. When what you want is sleep, nothing could be finer than this place. A few miles east of downtown but no problem of you're not looking to bar hop. And, friendly staff.

Positives: I was happy to get a room here with just a few days' notice as Ithaca was booked up due to a Cornell event. The King room was a nice size with a sitting area and love seat. The room was quiet, at the end of the hall. Staff at check in was very friendly and helpful. Negatives: Upon... More

Am here to visit family close by. Rode up as passenger and other family stayed at relatives--one spare bedroom there. They have no room service and their "bistro" is closed between 10:30 am and 5:00 pm. Only food available is from vending machines. Since I have no car until my relatives are available, trapped without real food available. Also, there... More

I've stayed this hotel several times over the last year to visit my son who attends Cornell. The environment is welcoming and the staff is professional and efficient. I especially like the cafe that offers an excellent selection of snacks and meals. The lobby is nicely decorated and the rooms are very clean and comfortable.

Clean large room, modern new decor both inside room and in common areas. Hotel is right near Tompkins airport but I didn't find it noisy at all. The general location seemed a little rural but not deserted or unsafe Front desk concierge was SUPER professional and nice, best I have ever met, and I've also stayed in fancy five star... More

We were pleasantly surprised by our room at this Courtyard. We had a room with a king bed and sofa bed. The room was significantly larger than we expected with plenty of floor space for the extra rollaway we used. It was clean. Easy to control room temperature. Big window. Room light was adequate. Lots of desk and table space... More

Traveling on business, I have stayed there more than 200 nights. It's probably the best you can find in the Ithaca area. Relatively new and in a nice "park-like" setting near the tiny airport. This is a typical Courtyard inside. Rooms are spacious with comfortable mattresses, but the bathrooms are horrendously small. One has to literally wedge oneself between the... More
