I was very disappointed in our stay at the Hotel Ithaca. Their website shows renovated and well appointed rooms. I reserved a queen sized room and paid the queen bed price. At no time on the site or on the phone (had to eventually call because their online reservation system wouldn't process payments) did they say the "special rate offer"... More

I stayed here in July of 201 and this past weekend - both for a conference at Cornell. I like the location. I can walk to restaurants and it's a very close drive to my meeting place. Last time I stayed on the floor in the back with a very old/weird/creepy indoor hallway that faced the garage. I didn't feel... More

We were here for a college visit. On check in we were offered a renovated room upstairs with no elevator or an unrenovated first floor. We took second floor. Visual appearance of room was nice and modern but closer inspection showed it was not clean. We had long black hairs on pillows in both beds, floors that needed vacuuming and... More

We were here to visit friends on our way through the wine country, and wanted to be close to downtown Ithaca. There are only two choices that are right downtown: the Hilton Garden Inn (which is pretty new) and Hotel Ithaca (formerly a Holiday Inn and Ramada in its past lives of 40+ years, and definitely not new) (the classic...

Walked around in the morning to have brunch and grab some ice cream after. -The staff were polite and helpful as we asked them to call cab to... More

It's my second time staying at this property (last time it used to be a Holiday Inn). If I can offer some advice, stay in the hotel tower if possible. The rooms are newly renovated and beat the 'motel 6-like' plaza that is ground-level. The elevators are very quick and you get a nice view of town too. Prices here... More

I stayed 2 nights with my teenage daughter. We had a room in the executive tower and found it clean and comfortable. The 2 queen beds had duvets and feather pillows. The bathroom had a beautiful walk in shower with curved glass doors and a rain shower head. The addition of a in room fridge was a plus. The rooms... More

Our room was clean, but worn. We got a good deal on priceline and it was a perfectly average nice hotel. My husband clogged the toilet within min of getting there and maintenance responded super fast, was very friendly and fixed it immediately. The proximity to downtown Ithaca was what really mattered to me and it was perfectly situated for... More

We arrived tired, hot & hungry. We were asked if we wanted to take the stairs to our room or stay on ground level - they have NO elevator! Really? So of course we said ground floor as after a 6 hour drive we didn't want to carry luggage up flights of stairs. Well our mistake - our room was... More

I'm 8 months pregnant and have a 1.5 year old. I called a few days in advance to confirm the reservation and see if I could get a room on either the first floor or on an elevator floor. Also, we preferred a tub for the little one. It took a while to find the front desk to find the... More
