Stayed here with my daughter while visiting Ithaca College. It's about 8 minutes from downtown, 7 minutes from IC and 10 minutes from Cornell. It's a basic hotel and you get a good value for your money, just not many extras. Beds are comfortable. Rooms remind me of my parents' kitchen and dining room decor from the 70s -- orange,...

We stayed at this hotel for two nights for the YMCA state swimming competition at Ithaca College. The location is outside of downtown Ithaca and located on a busy commercial street with lots of box stores, gas stations and fast food; however, it was convenient to all desired points and very nice and clean. The hotel and rooms seem updated...

The front desk was very professional. The check in was fast. The hotel is very well maintained. The room is very good size. The mattress is firm and...

The hotel staff have all been friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very good. All around excellent review with emphasis on how pleasant all...

I was visiting Ithaca, and I was surprised by the (high) prices of the mid to upper range hotels in the area. I chose this particular location solely on price, and it ended up being a great decision. It is one of the newer and nicer looking hotels on Elmira Rd, and it is surrounded by shopping plazas and restaurants....

The Fairfield Inn, nationwide, has become a reliable destination for our family. The hotel in Ithaca is clean and comfortably decorated. The staff is friendly. The breakfast included hot oatmeal, omelets and waffles, in addition to the usual free breakfast items. This was a welcome addition to our morning. The Fairfield decor is colorful and contemporary which makes it feel...

Spent a night here with my daughter while visiting Cornell University. The hotel is very clean and modernized. It feels like a brand new hotel. Staff was very friendly and courteous. Not too far from Cornell University. The surrounding area has a lot of shopping and restaurants, so even though it's on a busy road, it wasn't noisy at all.

We stayed one night while passing through to Buffalo. Conveniently located to jump on/off the highway. Checked in late and were upgraded. Room is very spacious, clean, comfortable. Desk staff was very friendly. Complimentary breakfast looked good but just did a grab and go fruit/yogurt.

I was here to visit Ithaca College in hopes of transferring (to my avail I did not). The room was clean and modern, the service was exceptionally well, the location and views from the room are nice so props to thinking geographically before plopping a hotel down in a certain location. Breakfast is the usual. I will definetly stay here...
