Spent 1 night at this hotel. As noted, it's out in the middle of nowhere but you're about 15 minutes from town. We arrived very early - noon - and the young woman behind the desk printed out directions to the Dinosaur BBQ in Syracuse. Would recommend highly - Great food but get there early as it gets very crowded.... More

We book 2 nights at the Holiday Inn Express Syracuse/Fairgrouds. Our purpose in Syracuse was shopping. It was the perfect spot for a drive to Waterloo Premium Outlet and Syracuse's Carroussel Mall. Room was clean, pool was clean, breakfast included and close to the Quaker Steak and Lubes for a diner close to the hotel. Awesome.

Stayed here as a place to sleep as a break for the family on the way home. I booked it because it was 1/2 way between my departure point and destination. However, I wanted a pool for the kids and breakfast in the morning so we could get on the road as soon as possible in the morning. When I... More

Our stay was extremely uncomfortable. We only spent 1 night here and will not be back. Starting with the bathroom, the outside of the tub had dirt on it, i had requested extra towels before we even got there and we only had 2 towels for 3 people. I had to make 2 seperate trips to the front desk to... More

This hotel was very comfortable and clean. The location I agree with others is weird. First it was not found on our GPS and it is not new. It looks like it is in the middle of a farm field including barns nearby. It is really only 15 minutes from the Fairgrounds. We were in town as many others for... More

Stayed at this HI Express when they first opened about 5 years ago and returned last week to break up a long car trip. The hotel is still situated in the middle of nowhere off of I90 just west of Syracuse. The staff are friendly and attentive. The hotel is spotlessly clean. The rooms are what you would expect. Modern... More

We stayed for 2 nights at the Holiday Inn Syracuse Fairgrounds this past weekend. This hotel is definitely in a strange location. The reviewers who said you would never find it without gps were right. I printed out google driving directions and we had no problem. However, if you didn't have exact directions you may get lost. The hotel is... More

Highly recommended. Hotel is super clean and modern. Always go back to this Holiday Inn when in the area. Much cheaper than downtown Syracuse and only 10 minutes from Carousel Mall and 25 minutes from Waterloo.

My family stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for one night on the way to Plymouth, MA. from Toledo, OH. We pulled in around 11:30pm and were in our room rather quickly. The guy at the front desk was very helpful, informative and good at his job... which is not usually the case for some hotel desk workers on the... More
