I've stayed in this location twice over the last couple of years. The rooms are large, location not bad: across the road from amazing Wegmans supermarket, where you can get a pleasant breakfast and all the veggies or cheeses you've ever dreamt off (The motel's breakfast offering is in the forget-about-it category.) Panera is also nearby. The place is somewhat... More

This is by far the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. We were booked for two days so my son could check out Cornell. We only lasted one night. The toilet didn't work when we got there. I asked for someone to fix it, but had to wait because they didn't have enough staff. There was mold in the bathtub,... More

Attended a wedding over the 4th of July weekend and stayed here. What a mistake!! The room was dirty...trash under the bed (for two nights). No toilet paper or tissues. Air conditioning that rumbled through the night and sheets that didn't fit the bed. The restaurant was never open. Breakfast was....minimal at best. At hotwire we paid $109 a night.... More

Stayed here in late June 2014 for only a 1 day, 1 night visit to Cornell University. Overall, I enjoyed the stay here and had not complaints. Pricing was in line with what I expected and what was given. As it is a motel style, you do have to walk/drive to your room. That said, good cable channels, clean, hot/cold... More

I cannot even begin to describe the absolute nightmare of a visit my family had on our college trip to Cornell. My review of this dungeon is not a way of disparaging the owners, but of warning everyone on God's good Earth to stay the hell away from this place. I pity all who must stay here. After a three...

desperate to stay in Ithaca and this was the most reasonable; lobby and outside of buildings were dingy to say the least; but our room in the back "300 " wing, was clean... The morning continental breakfast wasn't worth going to other than decent bagels to toast; the orange juice tasted like bubbles(I assume soap residue in the glass pitcher)...husband... More

Always have a hard time finding a room in Ithaca, this motel was the last one that had a room, should have understood why. Had some ratings that looked pretty good so we booked it. First room they gave us, I can only say WOW how bad can it get. Pillow cases did not fit the pillows, which had yellow... More

I never like writing negative reviews especially for independent properties, but a recent stay here changed this. It was one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in. And it was not only because of the thin sheets and worn towels, peeling paint, lack of wifi or the exorbitant room rates (because of graduation) but it was the lack... More

The room was dingy and not exactly dirty but not something I could call clean either. The room had a window unit AC with settings for low, medium or high (but no auto temperature setting). The bathroom had a metal door which blocked the toilet and shower when opened - I can't describe it but it was small and awkward.... More

Filthy! Bathtub filled with dead bugs, leaky toilet, sticky bathroom floor, peeling paper. My sister bought a bottle of bleach and cleaned the tub before we showered. We can't move to another place because it is graduation week and every place in town is booked. Avoid if possible !
