Nothing special. The room had an odor and carpeting dingy. Will consider sending business to nearby motels. Really would be a great place if only a little updating and deep cleaning, Staff was pleasant during check in and check out.

After being satisfied with my last August's stay at this EconoLodge, I chose to return on my latest trip to pick up my son from school. I wasn't disappointed. The room and bathroom were clean, the bed comfortable, the staff friendly and helpful and the breakfast was fresh. I would recommend this EconoLodge in Ithaca to others if they're looking... More

I needed a roll-in shower due to limited ability to step over and into a normal tub/shower. The desk clerk when I arrived (Crystal, I think) apologized for the fact that they did not have one, and then spent at least a half hour calling many other motels in town for me. When she finally found one, it would have... More

I spent one night here while my son visited Ithaca College which is about 15 mins away. Overall the room was just okay. Nothing special, nothing horrible. I paid $99 for the night and expected a bit more for that price. The hotel is older, so there are signs of rust everywhere ...on the building and in the bathrooms. Room... More

I returned after two years. It was surprisingly good. Great value. Comfortable bed. Nice room and shower. The breakfast was a bit sketchy. I would visit again. The parking lot is not well suited for access in snow - which was my situation

We had a perfectly fine stay. I'm looking at some other reviews and wondering how much people paid? For the record, we stayed one night, on a weeknight, and paid about $62, in advance, non-refundable as we knew we needed to be in town for that particular night. The room was comfortable, on the 2nd floor as we requested, well... More

Kind of threadbare and tired, and I've stayed at a lot of Choice hotels over the last few years. Blase staff and modest furnishings here, too. I object to hotels like this one that advertise "green" practices but launder all of your towels and throw out your soap and shampoo every day you are there. Cleaning staff seems to mill... More
