We stayed here for one night on our way from Philadelphia to Niagra Falls. It was the best rate so we figured we could handle anything for one night. The front desk staff was extremely friendly. The rooms weren't anything special but they were clean and the complimentary breakfast was fine. I would stay again.

I have stayed there a few times (not on my dime but the businesses'). Typically it has been one of the few available locations. In general, the rooms have been musty, but I figured it was reasonable for what was likely being paid. I just made personal reservations for homecoming weekend at over $200 per night (not much else was... More

A few things I really don't understand about this hotel and ones like it: 1. I arrived and the room was set at 68 degrees with the air conditioner blaring. It's summer. People are dressed for 80+ degree weather. Why waste energy like this? 2. There's a very thin blanket on the bed and no additional blankets in the room.... More

Dear Guest Studies have shown, to most - 68 degrees is a comfortable temperature. The AC unit is adjustable to fit individual needs. I apologize that it did not suit your liking when you walked into your room. Our hotel does not have central AC in the hallways, so we like for our guest to be comfortable when walking into... More

Paid nearly $300 for 1 night while dropping my son at college. The entire dank hallway reeked of old cigarette smoke although this appeared to be the non-smoking section. Our room smelled of both smoke and mildew. We were forced to keep our window open even though it was 90 degree day. The bed was uncomfortable with old and cheap... More

The rooms at this hotel are clean, even though the hallways are a little dank. The front desk help was friendly and welcoming. I know it's a college town, but the price for the room could stand to be a good $10-$20 lower for the quality. I decided to not partake in the breakfast after my daughter showed me the... More

Dear Guest Thank you very much for your feedback. We have 2 types of creamers for coffee, one of them is a non dairy creamer. The creamers do not require refrigeration. I think maybe a non dairy creamer was used and this is what may have been "curdled" look. The non dairy creamer isn't as smooth as a regular creamer.... More

I usually stay here when i'm in Ithaca but the price is far too high. The room is cool and its right across the street from the Mall but i'm definately not crazy about the price. The hotel is about 4 miles from Cornell Univ.

Booked the room through Trip Advisor two months in advance; confirmation came through right away, and I made the mistake of not looking at it carefully until a few days before we traveled, when I noticed that it specified a smoking room. I called right away to ask them to change it, and they said they would try, but no... More

Dear Guest I completely understand. Some people love that we offer smoking rooms and others, not so much. I appreciate your kind words regarding breakfast. You are correct. There should have been a sign if the pancake machine was malfunctioning. Regarding the pillows, three pillows is what our brand standard requires. If you would have liked more pillow, we would...

This was one of the cheaper options in the area to have easy access to Cornell but I would spend more money to upgrade to a better establishment next time. To start, the rooms smell terrible, like stale urine, which is only barely covered by the noisy air conditioner that is constantly running. The first night of our stay we... More
