The Craftsman Inn was a lovely place to stay. My husband and I had a quick overnight stay. The front desk staff were very nice, the bed very comfortable and the room quiet and peaceful. The air conditioner was noisy but we only had to use it a short time. I would recommend staying here, but perhaps not on a... More

When moving our daughter into college we found this gem. The rooms are extremely comfortable. The staff is very helpful. The location is easy to get to and access to the highways are very easy . They also have rooms that are pet friendly which is extremely nice

Thank You for the lovely comment about our staff. They genuinely are kind and eager to help. And thank you for mentioning our great location- a comfortable neighborhood setting with great shopping right across the street, but as you say, easy access to the highway and 15 minutes from downtown!

Here for a nearby wedding. Helpful, friendly front desk staff. Maintenance needs to be improved: hallway and room carpets are stained, bed skirt ripped and not too clean, a/c in friend's room completely nonfunctional and ours very noisy, drapes hanging off rod. Bed comfortable enough. Property restaurant terrible (see separate Limestone Grille review). I would not recommend or return.

Thank you for taking the time to offer your critique of your stay. Our apologies for the shortcomings that you mention. You are correct that we had a perfect storm of weather conditions this past weekend that saw several of our room air conditioning units under-perform or, as in your case, vibrate as they strained to keep up. Fortunately we... More

This is an older dated hotel, with large pleasant suite rooms in the building containing the restaurant. Bed very comfortable, living room very spacious with couch, coffee table and chairs. We had a party to attend in Manlius so it was much more convenient than staying in Syracuse. Otherwise not much around hotel. Plenty of free parking. Just a few... More

Our thanks for the kind words. Our location in the Eastern suburbs allows our guests to be downtown in 15 minutes, and at Green Lakes in 5!

We have stayed at this property before, and I'm not sure why these little things bothered me this time? Things like no coffee left in the am, no ice in the ice machine (not to mention a very lousy location to find!), no ironing board in room, cumbersome keys, etc. but a mediocre stay in an otherwise nice hotel, on...

I was somewhat concerned because of the mixed reviews of this property but I was delighted with our suite which had been renovated recently. The restaurant on site the Limestone Grill was also excellent for dinner and breakfast with the service outstanding.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The American Arts and Crafts Movement blossomed at the turn of the 20th century on the tree lined streets of peaceful villages in upstate New York. The movement was a personal and architectural revolt against the ornateness of the Victorian style. This Movement sparked a period of design characterized by simplicity, honestly and integrity. Here in Fayetteville, Leopold and John George Stickley created Arts and Crafts furniture using innovative construction techniques which have endured as hallmarks of the Movement. The Craftsman Inn is dedicated to these Craftsman ideals. Look around, the designs that inspire the building, the chairs and tables, the lighting and pictures, all evoke that ideal. Our Limestone Grille was launched in 2008 as the heir to our more stately Craftsman House. The Limestone reflects the 21st century evolution of these concepts as once again a desire for a simpler, truer,more authentic approach becomes prevalent. Our dining room and lounge reflect clean, Mission style design but with warm colors, classic furnishings, and contemporary appointments. Our service staff and bartenders provide friendly yet attentive service, knowledgeable without being presumptuous, helping to create the sense of relaxed comfort we all seem to miss so much of the time. That end result is what inspires us to do the best we can. ... more   less
