Me and my fiance had looked up the reviews on trip advisor and were very cautious with booking here. Once we got it didn't look to great from the outside because this place has been here along time. The check-in was rough but a wedding group was in front of us to get their rooms. Check in was at 3p... More

Thanks, William, for that gratifying review. We are very excited that the construction is over and guests are able to enjoy the new breakfast room and lobby. There was a large wedding group checking that day, but are glad you were able to your room in a timely manner. We hope to see you again in the near future. Best,... More

Thanks for the great service and excellent accommodation. Would recommend this hotel to all! Good hot breakfast. Very central to al the attractions. Remember to use your AAA/AARP discounts when staying with this group, they do honor them.

Dear Sellwoods, Wow, so great to hear your comments. We have completed our new breakfast room and lobby to the hotel and we are quite excited about it after the renovations. Yes, we are lucky to be near Buttermilk Falls and downtown Ithaca. We hope to see you again in the future! Best, Jim McMann More

I booked this hotel online where it clearly stated that the room could accommodate 5 people with the use of a roll-away bed. The problem was that for both nights that we stayed, they had no more roll-away beds available. The best they could do is provide me with a couple of extra quilts so that someone could sleep on...

Dear Tina, The reception you received with us is completely unacceptable. We should have been proactive in making sure we had enough rollaways. I completely understand your frustration with the staff. I have printed this review and have posted it in our employee area. This will also be addressed at our daily standup meeting. Coffee is available 24 hours and... More

The hotel is going through some renovations. Even with new baths, one of the rooms still had mold in it. We were given a new room instead. The toilet in the other room was dirty. The hotel had only single staff member for late night, responsible for anything from check in to cleaning the toilet. The breakfast is similar to... More

Pre paid for one night through Hotwire. This hotel was under construction so the front desk and breakfast areas were in guest rooms. Hallways and stairways were dirty, but our room was clean. Breakfast was sparse and typical, however eating in adjoining guest rooms was awkward. The only bright spot was the front dest clerk Jeffrey who was pleasant and... More

Dear Eatright, How disappointing to hear about your stay with us! Although we are keeping the construction at one end of the hotel, it is regretful that you did not have a comfortable stay. Thank you for your kind words about Jeffrey. He is one of our best assets. The construction should be done in the next few weeks and... More

This hotel was a hot mess....there was major construction, which we were not informed of when booking. While the front desk employee was very nice and helpful, when we checked out I signed a receipt for $159. However, my credit card statement reflected a charge of $179.00. When I called (with a copy of my signed receipt) the manager was... More

I was here in July 2014 for the Cornell Young Birders Event. It took a while to get acquainted with the area given how different Ithaca is from most other places. Josh was so friendly that he provided probably the best customer service I've seen to date. My stay here was great and I will most definitely be coming back.

I needed a pet friendly hotel for what I thought was going to be for about a week. I ran into some unexpected complications and ended up staying for over two weeks. My room was cozy and the morning breakfast was a welcome added bonus. The exterior lighting was super convenient when walking my dog at night. However what puts... More

I have been to a lot of comfort suites and this one is fine however I wouldn't pay $100-$150 a night for the experience I had. We were not informed about the major construction when booking online.

Clean rooms, clean bathrooms. For a night passing through the room is sufficient. Wi-fi was finicky, but worked. Friendly staff. Parking was tough to find. Breakfast was ok as long as you wanted cereal and a waffle.
