“Spacious and well appointed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

The suites are very spacious and clean, the furniture and the mattress were very comfortable, and the kitchenette was great. The location is to the North of Cornell campus in the direction of shopping malls and the airport. Pool and jacuzzi are there, yet the lack of a sauna was my only disappointment. Certainly would consider staying there again.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Our visit was a two week long result of a minor fire in our home. When we arrived at the Homewood suite in an absolute panic, with two angry cats and trash bags full of our salvaged items, we were immediately greeted by a kind young man named Matt working the front desk, whose tender, soothing voice immediately removed all of our stress. They were attentive to our every need, and every single person we encountered was an absolute joy. However, the obvious highlight of our trip was the kitchen manager, Sandy. Sandy was our acting grandmother for the two weeks, providing food, comfort, and a kind person to talk to throughout our ordeal. She not only kept our plates and wine glasses full, but made sure that we were taken care of at every moment. She truly went above and beyond. Every meal she would sit with us and chat, and made it her personal job to see to it that we were happy. Whatever they are paying her, it's not enough.

Ithaca is confusing. There seem to be several hotels/motels with the similar names. Be careful when you choose. This hotel is very nice. Others with a similar name, not so much. If you're visiting friends at Kendal, be sure to ask for the discount.

The hotel was close to the airport with a shuttle to take us there in the early morning. The room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was delicious. The pillows are not very comfortable but that is a minor issue. They even allowed us t keep our car there while we vacationed. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Over all it was a necessary stay that was made pleasant by everyone in a lovely home-like setting.

I have stayed at this hotel many times and this time we stayed two weeks waiting for our household goods to arrive. We are making Ithaca our home. The breakfast was pretty good and my children love going to the pool every day. The staff has always been very friendly and almost treated me like family. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area.

This place has nice suites with decent breakfast. Nothing great but nothing bad as such. We stayed with our 8 month old boy so the separate living room layout was very comfortable. The drive to this place in the night is little scary as it goes through country road. But otherwise nice place to stay in Finger lakes region.
