My husband and I spent 3 nights in the Holiday Inn downtown Ithaca and it wasn't really good value for the money. I'm not sure if this isn't so for all the hotels in downtown Ithaca. They all seem to have high priced accommodation and I'm not sure why.
The one redeeming factor of this hotel was that it was situated right down town so that it was close to walking distance to great restaurants and bistros and to the Common. But this hotel is tired and needs a renovation. Our first room smelled of smoke and the night manager was very understanding so he gave us a new room across the hall. Both rooms were on the second floor and were kind of dingy and disappointing. The second room overlooked the rooftop and its large industrial vents - no view at all. The bathroom was okay and quite spacious but the taps were a bit grungy and the tub was small and shallow. Our beds sagged and the cleaning staff didn't clean our rooms on the last day that we were there - they didn't realize that we had booked to stay on the Sunday night. So overall, though I loved the area and the city, I wouldn't recommend this place.
