Polite and helpful staff. Very clean. Comfortable and clean beds. Great breakfast! Conveniently located near shopping and many waterfalls close by. First time staying here and very glad we did. Looking forward to coming back and staying here! Thank you!

Husband and I stayed here one night. The motel has been undergoing renovation, and had a new big breakfast dining area and a fitness room! The rooms were OK. The carpet in our room was either not quite clean or worn. The lodge is located right off the highway .

Dear Mettenel, Thank for staying with us while you traveled. We did just finish some renovations in our public spaces. Breakfast was redone and expanded to offer more of a selection and we are the only ones to offer pancakes! We added in the fitness center and guest laundry as well. We are very happy with the outcome. Things look... More

I've always been a fan of budget hotels and never expect five star when paying the budget price. I stayed here last minute on a road trip through America. This place was very similar to a "Travelodge" in the UK so I was not expecting the Ritz. We were greeted by a friendly lady who said she would put us... More

Convenient to Cornell's North Campus, Econo Lodge provides exactly what it advertises: basic no frills accommodations at a very reasonable price. Indeed, the price cannot be beat anywhere in the area. Additionally, this place offers more than what I expected in amenities, with free wifi, a microwave, a fridge (no freezer), and even a very nice hot breakfast included with... More

Dear albetwjj, Thank you for complimenting the hotel and what we offer. We have expanded on what we have available for our guests. We try to offer the most at a reasonable price. The full hot breakfast is relatively new and going well. Happy to hear you took advantage of it. For the future we also have a complimentary shuttle... More

Got a company rate for about $61/night. Room was pretty clean, bed was comfortable. Only downside was that I was there when it was really bad weather so that was a pain to deal with. Bathroom was also clean. Would definitely stay again.

I felt the $100 rate should have been about half that. They only have queen beds, and the beds are so bouncy it feels like you are on a trampoline when your spouse moves or rolls over. Not a good night's sleep for either spouse. Continental breakfast was not good either. Not very many choices, only pre-packaged danishes and bagels,... More

As I've stated multiple times when reviewing budget motels/inns, I'm not expecting five star accommodations at these places (although five star service should be expected wherever you stay), which is something I take into account when reviewing these places. That said, it is unacceptable that my room lost power during my stay for everything but the bathroom light and the... More

In a nutshell - this was a nice, clean, affordable hotel that was close to everything in Ithaca. The stff was friendly and very helpful. The rate was great compared to many of the overpriced hotels in the area. We were very happy with our stay. Free wifi that worked great. Free Continental breakfast.

Had seen previous positive reviews. Hotel had been renovated about a year ago. Many other hotels of this level and age, start to look very tired, so we were very pleased with what we found. It was clean, comfortable and quiet. Continental Breakfast was good. Easy access to shopping and restaurants.
