We stayed here one night after spending the day hiking in Watkins Glen and the surrounding area. We were quite tired when we arrived and didn't do much but relax and sleep. The front desk was friendly and efficient. The room was very large, very clean and had a microwave and refrigerator. The room was quite large and the bed... More

Nothing really to write home about as they say. The front desk clerk acted like we were interrupting his time when we arrived to check in. The room was clean with plenty of space but the bed was very hard. I had been driving all day and was very tired so I still went to sleep on it but it... More

I stay at A LOT of Holiday Inn expresses as an IHG member who travels for work. This Holiday Inn Express is ok. This was a non business trip. My wife and I had an early flight out of Syracuse airport and a late flight returning so we stayed here before and after our trip. Pros: - Location near Airport... More

wasn't what we were expecting: took my son to start freshman year at Syracuse. Staff very friendly at check-in... The room smelled from cigar smoke from awhile ago, when we mentioned it to front desk, they offered to change us, but we didn't think it was worth the hassle, just didn't wanted to get charged for it. Abbey recommended a... More

Spent one night at the hotel. Upon registering we were asked which floor we wanted our room to be on - we asked for the 2nd floor as several families with children checked in before us and we wanted more privacy. Room was clean, well stocked with towels, etc. They offer free shuttle service to local restaurants which we took... More

I've stayed at many Holiday Inn Express's in other places, and have come to expect them to be above average. The rooms usually cost a bit more, but they make up for it by being very clean, with great rooms. This was not the case here. We booked the room twice - once before we were flying out on vacation,...

This hotel is not what we've come to expect from Holiday Inn Express. The sheets were stained and the bathroom had hair scattered throughout. The carpet seemed dirty as well and the tub grout was molding. On a positive they have a complimentary shuttle to area restaurants. If we are back in the area we definitely will try someplace else.

I expect a certain level of quality and value when staying in a Holiday Inn Express and at this location they did not even come close. The hotel is in dire need of an upgrade. Lobby furniture was filthy, and dated. Room was a little better, but dated and poorly laid out and walls were paper thin. Some one must... More

We stayed in a King/sofabed suite and the room was spacious and very clean. Breakfast is included. We are Canadians flying out of Syracuse (due to cheaper fares), this was a great place to stay before flying out and there is a shuttle that takes you to the airport. You can leave your vehicle for several days at the hotel... More

A bit difficult to find but once there the staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are good, the beds comfortable. The room was very quiet. Breakfast is very good as well. One point, the bill on check out did not agree with what we signed as we checked in. Make sure you look it over.
