Very clean with helpful staff. Michael at the front desk went way above and beyond in helping us find several interesting spots to visit, places to eat, and he is extremely knowledgeable about Mark Twain. He was very informative about the author and local history. We have now made Elmira a future destination for vacation because of all the things... More

Being on a budget, we almost made a horrible mistake! It was wonderful - clean and friendly, plus it was only 6 miles from the horrible little place we had originally chosen!

I'm not a 5-star kind of guy and I travel a great deal for work. Basically, I can stay in a tent if I had to. This hotel is clean, the staff is over the top nice, but the facility is old and dated. If you don’t have a problem with “old”, this may be the place for you. The... More

I could handle the massive amounts of bugs and frogs outside but when the ants get in my bed I need my money back. Which they didn't want to give me after only 30 minutes of being in the room. We walked out of the restaurant for lack of service. I also witnessed the guy in front of me in... More

Typical Holiday Inn hotel but a little complex to get to especially if your room is in the other building. You have to take stairs (no ramp or other options) or have to walk outside, and enter through a different gate from the outside. Also, there is an adjacent bar which was exceptionally loud in the lobby - could not... More
