“Trip to the Finger Lakes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

The Homewood Suites in Ithica is a decent hotel with very nice people working there, however the food served at the night reception and the breakfast offered leaves a lot to be desired. It was some of the worse food I have ever been served at a Homewood Suite.

This is the best place to stay in Ithaca/Cornell other than the Stadler in Cornell. Large suite and comfortable sofa bed. Book well in advance since it is very full beginning and end of school years. Very close to Cornell

Stayed here for a weekend family get together, reserving 3 one bedroom suites.
Requested the rooms be next to each, and they complied even having two adjoining suites, which worked out very nicely.
Hotel very conveniently located near shopping, major highways - a short drive to Cornell and downtown.
Hotel has a nice appearance and is very clean. The suites were a good size with a full kitchen and bedroom. Lobby nice.
Good facilities with a mini store for snacks and frozen food, indoor pool with a fitness center. The free wifi worked great.
Breakfast was very good, basic cold items, with several hot items including eggs, sausage,bacon, potatoes and waffles.
The service however was not up to the quality of the rest of the hotel. The staff at breakfast could have done a better job. For instance, when I informed one of them oj was watery, she simply put a spoon in the juice machine and stirred it a little. It was still watery. (the next morning it was fine).
The front desk made a few mistakes. When I made the reservation and checked out I told them to make sure I got billed for all 3 rooms. They billed each party; a minor inconvenience.
Also one of the parties checked out a day early, and the front desk mistakenly changed the key code to our room, and we temporarily locked out and had to get new keys. Again, just a minor inconvenience.
Maybe the front desk had a bad day or two.
All in all it was a great stay at an excellent well located clean hotel with great suites and many perks. Everyone in our party had a great time.
I will give the staff the benefit of the doubt. I think that the front desk may be understaffed, and it was a full house. They were very pleasant, though. I would definitely give them another chance and stay again.
It is too GREAT a VALUE to pass up

The hotel staff was very courteous, the hotel itself was great. The rooms are really clean and the service was excellent. The hotel was quiet with none of the usual noise in the corridors. The complimentary breakfast was very good quality. The kitchen is great, with a full size refrigerator, coffee maker, pans, and dishwasher. I would definitely stay here again.

Everything worked, we enjoyed our stay, no complaints. This is the #3 closest hotel to the CU campus. They have a very convenient shuttle to and from anywhere on CU campus, and callable from campus. The CU Hotel school hotel (#1) is usually booked 2-3 weeks in advance, and service at the Best Western (#2) is indifferent - "unhappy", as my wife would say.

We state here with our two young kids (6 months and 3 years) and couldn't have been more pleased. The staff was wonderful, and accomidations surpassed our expectations. the free breakfast was a nice perk and we enjoyed it daily. Dinner with wine and beer (weeknights only) looked great, but we didn't try it because we had other plans. The rooms are clean and well-appointed but nothing fancy. Next to the hotel is a gourmet food market with local cheeses, craft beers and a coffee shop (Ithaca Coffee) - The exterior is deceiving - inside it is actually very nice. Location is between Ithaca and Cornell - convenient to both by car.
