4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I have stayed here before a couple of years ago. We had a nice stay this time around, but I was a little disappointed as it felt like this hotel was slipping a little. I was also disappointed to find that a suite wasn't much bigger than a reg room with a mini fridge and microwave, and the price was... More

I only stayed here because all the Hilton's were booked (that's got to say something). It was okay, but if given the choice I would not stay again. The hall and elevator floors could have been a lot cleaner throughout the hotel. The bedding had some stains and the exercise room looked old and outdated.

We stayed here one night on our way from Maine to Niagara Falls. The hotel was close to the thruway and does appear to be in the middle of nowhere. There aren't restaurants right by the hotel, but we found what we needed with a 10 minute drive. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful, which was greatly... More

While traveling to Maine I decided to take a short stop and check out Syracuse. While checking on places to relax I came across this Holiday Inn. Upon arrival I was amazed at the location, the hotel is located in the middle of no where with no restaurants or gas stations or really anything directly near it at all. I... More

Very friendly front desk with a sense of humor but professional. Room was very clean and the ac was quiet(very unusual!). The other amenities offered looked very good as well but we did not use them. It was a pleasant experience.

I've been to this location a handful of times in the past and had always enjoyed this particular location. Most recently I stayed there for only 1 night but was very happy with how clean and comfortable the hotel was and always is. Seemed like they got new lighting everywhere and it sure was delightfully bright in the breakfast area.... More

Our first time staying at this chain made an excellent impression. The hotel looked nearly brand new and was impeccably clean - yet was also pet-friendly. Particular perks were spacious rooms, wonderfully comfortable beds, an extensive (and included for no extra charge) hot breakfast buffet, friendly staff, and availability of freshly baked cookies in the lobby. We will definitely be... More

We found this hotel on TripAdvisor and booked it only about 1/2 hour before our late-night arrival. The hotel was brand new, super clean, beautiful, and the staff was great. We would absolutely return if we were to pass through Syracuse again!
