The photos on the website are so misleading - they must have been taken years and years ago when it was fully operational. I honestly thought it was abandoned - paint was peeling, wall paper literally hanging off the walls, and windows were so corroded you could not see through them. I am traveling with my daughter looking at colleges... More

We needed a place while traveling and found this with an online search. The pictures we found didn't match what we were presented with. It looked like an abandoned building, the parking lot was in terrible shape. The pool was okay, other than the spider riding a cigarette butt. Inside it didn't look any better than the abandoned building feel... More

I am so disappointed in myself for not checking "Trip Advisor" before booking at this horrible place! It was difficult to figure out in the daytime where the registration desk was to check in. It is so run down, that it does not have a sign indicating where it is! So I just picked a door and followed the run... More

Plywood over damage, crumbling parking lot, peeling signs, broken coffee pot, roof peeling off over the swimming pool, WiFi didn't work, manager who would not appear to discuss these conditions. Need I say more? I'm a pretty seasoned traveler, but these conditions are simply unacceptable. They say they are renovating, but I didn't see any contractors/workers. I'd avoid until they... More

Remember the Bates Motel in Psycho? Well, it's been replicated in Ithaca. After mistakenly booking this dump (and it insults dumps), my wife and I went to our room, which was in such disrepair it was beyond belief. Dirty carpets, litter in the hallways, creaky elevator - you get the picture. We asked for our money back and the front... More

Run far away! Upon arrival first impression was we thought hotel was closed down. We were the only car in the parking lot. Spotted the cleaning woman who was sitting on the floor by the parking lot (guess taking her break) so we parked the car. There were two doors by the parking spot that were for possibly a utility...

The hotel was excellent. The room was excellent, bathroom was excellent. I will stay at this hotel each time I visit Ithaca. I was very impressed. I had breakfast at the hotel and the food was great and very clean.

Imagine checking into the Timberline Lodge with Jack Nicholson chasing after you with a knife. That's how we felt checking in to this horrible hotel. The decor was like a B movie set of a 60s flop house. The clerk, while polite, gave us no indication what we were getting in to. On the way to the room down a... More

The hotel is in a terrible state of repair. Entrance doors missing and others that cannot be closed making the hotel very unsafe. There has been no maintenance on this building for years. Carpets are stained and torn. At least my ac worked which a business friend did not have and her TV did not work.

Terrible place and it is over charged. I booked at at the last minute without reading the other reviews. I really wish I did. Place looks torn out from outside and has a poor or no maintenance. carpets stinks and I think have mold. Parking lot is full of potholes. There are many back side doors without lock so any... More
