5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Having stayed at this hotel a year ago, we wondered if they would be able to keep up their very high standard. They have. Everything is spotless and very welcoming the minute one steps through the front doors. It is a bit tricky to find and "in the middle of nowhere" but it is worth the effort to do so.... More

Yes, this hotel is really in the middle of nowhere, in the middle of a prairie. But I guess if you are going to the State Fair, it is convenient, as is the shuttle that takes you there free of charge. The rooms were ok, the beds a bit soft and the A/C not the most efficient (plus our non-smoking... More

Tired from a day of travels chose Holiday Inn Express because of the consistency of the chain. Yes, it is clean and the beds/pillows are comfortable. The location is probably great for the fairgrounds, but consist of a series of turns if traveling from the Thruway (none of which are marked). The a/c is pretty loud and cycles frequently for...

Hotel staff were friendly, room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Pleasant over night stay after a good time at the fair. Hotel also has a shuttle to and from the fairgrounds. Would stay again.

Second year staying at this Holiday Inn Express. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the staff are wonderful. Having the added plus of free shuttle service to and from the State Fair is a huge convenience. The drivers are knowledgeable and friendly...full of local information. Will definitely be back for "Year three"!

Stayed here August 12-16 while in Syracuse to shop. Very nice staff and very reasonable rates. This hotel is about a 10 minute drive to the Destiny USA mall area and the State Fairgrounds. Good breakfast in the morning and clean rooms every day. I will definitely stay here again.

Beds super comfy. Room immaculate. Service excellent. We stopped twice, a week apart, for a rest midway on a long drive. Christine and Ellie went out of their way to make our short stays perfect. Ellie even remembered that my roommate didn't care for sausage, and told us she would be sure to have bacon at breakfast the next morning.... More

What a delight this turned out to be! Room was large, comfortable and unbelievably clean. Ammenties were great. Really appreciated the bath gel as mine was left behind. When we were ready for supper, asked desk and were directed to a decent restaurant through a walking trail by the hotel. Check in was easy as was checking out. Highly recommend!

The fact that this hotel is located in the middle of nowhere is a plus. Great place to stay if you're on a shopping trip, only about 10 minutes to Destiny USA mall.

This hotel is pretty much what you expect from a Holiday Inn Express (HIE) in terms of cleanliness and efficient stay for a reasonable price. Location It is about 15 minutes drive from downtown Syracuse. But it is in the middle of nowhere. No restaurants nearby, apart from a Buffalo wings joint. The hotel is in front of vacant lots...
