Spent 3 nights at this hotel while in Syracuse visiting family. Location is remote, but with good access to the highways. We were greeted warmly by staff whenever they saw us. Breakfast was fine-bagels, pancakes, cereals, etc., the typical set up for a do it yourself buffet. The room was in good shape, very clean, although the walls were kind... More

We stayed here for a lacrosse tournament as part of a small group of people (about 30 families) and found the hotel to be very accommodating. The worst part of this hotel is the location which is outside a complex system of highway off ramps, side roads and unlit streets. The location is completely isolated from anything except for the...

Ended up at this hotel on a long drive in a snow storm. We arrived late and was greater by the friendliest front desk clerk. He was great.

Well after considerable research of hotels close to the Premiums Outlook Mall and the Destiny mall we chose this hotel as we wanted three separate beds as we were 3 girls that were having a weekend away and didn't want to book 2 rooms as one person would be left out.

I stayed with my dad for Homecoming weekend. Very standard, comfortable beds for a HI. Old, rickety crickety elevators. Nice breakfast and staff, overall a quality HI.

Typical HI Express. Very friendly staff. Clean, spacious room. Thin walls, could easily hear the conversation in the next room. Breakfast just average, faeegs (fake or powdered eggs), very little protein options, great cinnamon rolls. Small fitness room, no dumbbells.
