We were here for a graduation at Syracuse U. It took a while to find the hotel, but after checking in we were very happy with our room. It is a newer Holiday Inn and pretty cookie cutter type. It has a very good breakfast, also a great staff. Not sure if we will ever get back here, but it... More

Although this hotel is a bit tricky to locate, it is well worth the effort to do so. Everything about it is good. The reception staff are friendly and helpful; the rooms are large, clean, well appointed and serviced, while the breakfast area is wonderful. The lady looking after the food was constantly checking and cleaning up. She brought additional... More

Stayed two nights during the run of the fair. Staff was very friendly and helped with any questions we had. Shuttle to fair was great as the night before a storm had flooded 3000 parking spots. You can walk down a short dirt road and have a good dinner at Quaker Steak and Lube.

Christina, Joe and Danielle are wonderful! Always smiling and happy, willing to save some cookies for guests returning to the hotel after dinner, or open the breakfast refrigerator early so you can have a yogurt and cereal at 5:30 am. I won't stay anywhere else when visiting Syracuse.

This hotel appears to be out in the boonies, although it is quite close to the fairgrounds (but not as the name implies right beside it), and not too far from the mall oro downtown if you take the highway. The staff were friendly, and the front desk very helpful. Breakfast was pretty good with an automatic pancake maker .... More

We have to admit the staff at this location were friendly, which would probably be the only reason we'd return. The room was standard-decent for our family. However, at night, when it rained, there was a leak in the window sill which resulted in a torturous dripping noise. Burying our heads in the terrible pillows (someone else had mentioned to... More
