“If Only It Wasn't Named Super 8”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Seriously, if this place was not named Super 8, but some other kind of name with Inn + Suites in it, this place gets more recognition. Hence the name though, even I skipped over it at first.

A fellow employee of mine stayed here and said it perfectly "If only all Super 8's were like this one". Seriously, when your in your room relaxing with the AC on, in a fluffy comfortable bed watching a movie on your flat screen TV, you forget where you are. That's what happened here. You forget your at a "motel" and think your at some Inn and Suites that cost 160 a night. Instead you are paying (well I am during a summer where the students are not back at school yet) 119 a night + tax. Can't beat that compared to the CRAZY prices of some of these other places in Ithaca. One was 250 a night and this is a hotel maybe just one step above the Super 8 franchise.

Some of the bad things though (not too terrible). Definitely need to lighten up the hallways. I can see why some complained. You got a dark looking carpet meshing with tanish lights. Looks dark and dingy. Get some bright lights in there. Seriously makes a difference. Need to fix the shower drain and sink drain. Fills up way too fast. Almost flooded the room when I left the water running for just a minute to get cloths. Also for the shower, you need to change the design of the blinds. It's "U" shaped and when the ends dont go all the way to the wall, water FILLS up the floor. I tried my best to not make a mess but even slowly washing water went everywhere.

Overall it was a pleasant stay. Everything was SUPER clean. The bathroom almost looked like it was just redone for there wasnt a spec of any kind of mold or dirt anywhere. Also something I want to add is that the rooms (well mine did) do have a fridge and microwave. For some reason when I looked here and the Super 8 website both didnt state that the rooms had it. Plus the place is right across (literally) the street from Wegmans so food is easy to find.

Would definitely come again if staying in the area.

We were very suprised when we came to this motel- it was very clean, up to date modern design and comfortable bed..the breakfast was minimal but you have enough space to sit for breakfast. The service was OK, they should smile more at the front desk and the WiFi didnt work well at our room. Overall good stay for one or two nights.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review for the Super 8 Ithaca! I have passed on to all of my staff at a recent meeting to make sure they are smiling more. I apologize they didn't smile enough to you. With recent complaints of Wifi we have had everything checked and it is all in good working order. If you decide to stay with us again, I recommend calling the tech support number located in your room for help with connecting. We hope to see you again!

This hotel is a great place to stay and offers reasonable rates. Modern,clean, safe, and comfortable. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Free breakfast. No pool or in room safe but I would still recommend this hotel. Near downtown Ithaca and within walking distance of Wegman's Market Cafe and other restaurants.
