I've posted many times about holiday inn express. You know what you're getting when you stop. Clean and comfortable and a really good breakfast. Out of all the chains this is the best one. With the exception of the one in Orlando, I've never had a bad experience. Good job guys!

This is the best moderately priced hotel in Syracuse. We have been staying in hotels in Syracuse for 4 years of my daughter's college education. Last stay for graduation we tried this hotel. Everything was great - clean rooms, generous size rooms, well kept property, great breakfast - free - fantastic pool which is large enough for lap swimming. Location... More

Recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express / Fairgrounds while in town for my daughters’ sporting competition. The front desk staff were pleasant, the room clean, bed comfortable and breakfast adequate. Other than paper thin walls which made us feel part of the neighbor’s loud conversation, it was a decent stay. However, it is located in the middle of nowhere;... More

We stayed at this hotel last weekend for our daughter's graduation from Syracuse. I made the reservation in November, since it is so hard to get a room near town the second weekend in May! It was a 12-hour drive and we arrived exhausted. Our host greeted us with SU cheer and invited us to take an evening snack of... More

I needed to stay in Syracuse for 8 nights, and was working at SU, in Camillus, and in Weedsport throughout my stay. This hotel seemed centrally located and was one of the only hotels available for all 8 nights, so I booked it about 2 months in advance. The hotel seems to be in the middle of nowhere. It's a...
