Great hotel for my one night stay on the college tour circuit. It really is in the middle of nowhere but its a clean, well run hotel. The room was perfect, the front desk was very helpful with questions and the breakfast buffet was always restocked and was exceptionally clean. For those visiting Syracuse University, its less than 15 minutes... More

I stayed here July 4th weekend on a girls shopping trip. The room was nice, it looked as if it was hastly furnished. It didn't have a good use of space, there was a tiny chair in a big corner, but thats not all that important. We reserved a jr suite and it was supposed to come with a couch... More

The staff was efficient and friendly and the hotel was nice and clean. We arrived during a thunderstorm and were on our way to our room in the elevator when the lightening struck and the elevator stopped and refused to go up. It was lightening a number of times while we were in the elevator and even though it kept... More

Driving across country at 2am finding a hotel to stop at was the most important thing. The front desk was nice at check in, the room was nice and the bed easy to sleep on. It is in an awkward location and doesn't really have anything close to it. It is a brand new holiday inn so maybe the area... More

jlmh49, We agree! A hotel is the most important thing at 2am during a long drive. We are glad to hear the bed was easy to sleep on and the staff was nice. Hopefully you grabbed a cinnamon roll on your way out the door for the rest of your trip! Thanks for the review! John Tees General Manager More

Very nice hotel and extremely pleasant and helpful staff. My wife and I have stayed here a couple of times and have been very happy on each occasion . It is pretty isolated but it is very close to the highway so I find that a plus for me. There is literally not another building within 200 yards of this... More

I spent 2 nights here while attending a horse show. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. I stayed here last year too and I was not happy with my room. They appear to have upgraded the beds and we were pleased. We would stay here again
