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.

All motels in Ithaca varied significantly in price from Thursday to Friday in late September. Prices actually doubled which is ridiculous. The Econo Lodge was clean, comfortable and obviously newly renovated. However the breakfast was horrible, much worse than other competing hotels such as the Hampton Inn, etc.which also have no kitchen. My advice is to go out and order... More

Reservation cancellation was not properly handled and then all of the clerks lied about what each other said. The place is dirty and crummy, to be perfectly frank. I don't recommend it at all. I'd rather stay with in my college son's apartment than to stay there again. Enough said.

We have stayed there several times and will stay again.The people are friendly and it offers more value than other local hotels. They are refurbishing and we look forward to seeing the new carpeting done for our visit May. It's outside of town, next to the highway and strip stores, but it's not too noisy.

I generally avoid EconoLodges, although we regularly frequent other Choice Hotels, because EconoLodges are often dirty and noisy. However, having seen Mary's and Helcio's recent good reviews, and given everything else in town was overpriced or sold out, I decided to take a chance: The good: The desk clerk was efficient, the room was clean, the breakfast was adequate, computers...

I booked this fall weekend several months ago, definitely concerned about the cost (ie college town, nearby wineries, etc). This Econolodge (one of the cheaper places to stay in Ithaca) has been recently renovated-simple, clean rooms and bathrooms, a fair breakfast which is included, and desk staff that are wonderful!! A college football team stayed one of our nights, and... More
