Expensive and shabby. I just came from the W French Quarter, a luxury hotel in a prime location in New Orleans with impeccable service, fantastic food, and ultra-hip decor. For exactly the same price, I got a room at the Ithaca Hotel, with terrible bedding, lumpy pillows, mildewed bathrooms and sticky carpets. My room smelled bad and the on site... More

First this was probably a very nice hotel.... Many years ago. Today this place needs a lot of renovations. We arrived in the evening and no one was at the desk.... We waited over ten minutes for anyone to greet us. Staff that finally came was nice and friendly. The hotel felt very deserted. We drive to the side of... More

This is certifiably the worst hotel we have seen. We hesitantly checked in...lobby had a musty odor (desk clerk was friendly)...doesn't look like a hotel...more like a hockey arena...very stark and desolate looking exterior...the main sign (when we found it) had cracks and holes throughout. Elevator jerked and bounced. Doors to other rooms were open...finally found our two rooms...water spouted... More

Yes, it is true that the Trip Hotel is in need of renovations, but the young staff is eager to please and right any wrongs. The room was fine, comfy beds, good shower. Air conditioning unit too loud for me but it did the job keeping the room at a good temperature. The continental breakfast included yogurt, bagels to toast,... More

The experience to this hotel was so sweet. We went to Cornell university to attend graduation event over weekend. Surprisingly we got a teddy bear as a gift to Cornell graduating students in our room. The room is clean and well organized.

Ugh. Waste paper in the elevator that didn't get cleaned for hours, poorly maintained cloudy cold pool, luggage carts with broken wheels, and my personal favorite - cold water showers - twice. Yes, the hotel is 'under maintenance,' but even the 'renovated' areas are falling apart. Elevator had hand-painted floor numbers and broken buttons. Pool maintenance schedule I looked hadn't...

The staff were very pleasant. I booked for the wrong weekend night by accident and the night clerk cheerfully straightened it all out. The room was clean and everything was in working order. The bed was comfortable. The night we stayed there it was pretty quiet except, we were on the top floor and it sounded like someone was rolling... More

This is my second time at the Trip and it did not disappoint. Yes it is under renovation and some areas need work, like the parking lot, but the rooms are great!!! The staff is helpful and friendly and the price is reasonable. What more could you want?

My daughter attends Ithaca College so we went to celebrate family weekend with her. The hotels in Ithaca on parent weekend are sky high, if you are lucky enough to get one!!!

It's true, this hotel has been in better shape. It's a decades-old building, and some parts of it haven't been renovated in a while. However, several friends stayed here this weekend, and the guestrooms they were in were in excellent shape. Apparently, some are recently renovated and some aren't, so it's worth asking for an updated room if you'd like... More
