Friendly staff and clean, decent rooms. Good wifi, good temperature control. With not enough lamps, my room was a little dark, but nothing out of the ordinary these days, and at least lack of a floor lamp freed an outlet I could use for charging. I was here before when this was a Holiday Inn, I think, and I'm not... More

great location for downtown Ithaca. The room was clean and bed was comfortable. The shower and bathroom were fine. The bad thing is that the heat blows dry air. Also that there is no elevator. And lastly, the parking lot was full during the weekend.

Booked a room through Priceline and you just never know...Well I got lucky. This place was great. Staff was friendly and helpful, offering excellent suggestions for food. Room was clean and spacious. Bathroom was modern and well appointed. Loved the eco-conscious soap. Bed was comfy and the TV worked well. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

My husband and I stayed here for a concert, and it was our second time staying (first time was when it was a Holiday Inn). The room was wonderfully, and tastefully, decorated. Bed was very comfortable. The toiletries supplied in the bathroom are a 'Green' product line, and the bathroom shower was fantastic!

This was my second stay in this property. I was in town for a concert at the State Theatre and my usual choice, the Super 8, was completely booked. So I gave this one a return stop. The first time, it was quiet and comfortable. This time, it was only the latter. The location is very convenient to downtown and... More

Just visited Ithaca and enjoyed staying in a newly renovated room. While the bathroom was compact, the shower was the best I've ever experienced in a hotel. Room was very quiet with convenient free parking, a comfortable night sleep and friendly staff.

We were here for a college tour at Ithaca. I've stayed at Motel 8 s that were cleaner. We spent $250 for "newly renovated" rooms and we're grossly misled. NEVER AGAIN! Location was great but not worth it. Don't stay in room 271. Asked for a cot 3 times in 5 hours. Nothing.

The hotel has the perfect location, ideal for walking to all the local shops and restaurants in the area. There was also on-site parking that was free, with an easy in and out onto the main road.
