Great location: close to Cornell University and lots of restaurants nearby; short drive to a couple of state park such as Robert Treman State park and Watkins Glen State park. The inn is well maintained and very clean. All in all - I would stay...More

Response from Peter S, Front Office Manager at Hillside InnResponded January 22, 2014

It's hard to respond to a review written a year after the visit. There have been hotel upgrades since, doubling Internet signal strength, re-carpeting the hotel, new bathrooms in several rooms. Other upgrades are upcoming. Should the positive reviews we get be called into question...More

Due to our honeymoon , we entered Ithaca & noticed this small inn on our way to eat at Tavern Bunffi @ the Statler Hotel owned by Cornell University. They too suggested to us to use the hillside inn which as his name suggests: it's...More

I took my grandaughter to school in Ithaca and thought that I was getting a nice inn. We were shocked when we rode up to the place, not to mention how we felt when we walked into the 4x6 lobby. The carpet looked as though...More

This person did not stay at the hotel, merely walked in, saw it was not a newly built chain hotel (we are a family owned hotel next to the Cornell campus) and left, with full refund, despite a cancellation policy deadline already passed. So it...More
