I don't usually review places I stay for business, but I felt moved to after being so disappointed here. The hotel is in the middle of a large expansion but if they don't get housekeeping issues sorted out I can't imagine why anyone would stay more than once. I stayed in room 995 and my 2 colleagues were all on... More

Lovely front desk staff and manager, who helped smooth away from issues with an un-renovated room. There really should be two sets of prices until all rooms are renovated, then people's expectations would be appropriate. Special thanks to staff member Jeremy who helped us start our dead car battery - helpful, friendly, truly above and beyond.

The hotel was in a nice location within walking distance of downtown restaurants. The parking lot across the street was convenient and free for the weekend. Our room was in the unrenovated section and was barely acceptable. The carpeting in the hallway was filthy, and the carpet in the room itself looked many years old. Otherwise the room was similar...

If you want a nice hotel, with great service and a great location, Hotel Ithaca on Cayuga Street fits the bill. I stayed in the main building. It was nice and clean but could use a bit of a freshening up. I trust that the tower is and the new addition will be updated.

Not the greatest hotel. For what it is this hotel is overpriced. There is a smell of mold and humidity and stains on he carpets in the corridors. They need to complete the remodels and upgrades before charging these rates. This is by no means a 3star hotel.

Priceline should ensure properties that are listed as 3 star meet the 3 star standard ... Your website says "similar to Marriott, Hilton ..." This property is a 1 to 1.5 star at best. When you book a room here on Priceline, you are automatically assigned a room in the UNRENOVATED SECTION of the hotel. Thank heavens you publish reviews,... More

Hotel Ithaca is very conveniently located downtown, within a short walk of the Commons. There was plenty of parking across the street and it was free for the entire weekend! The staff was friendly, courteous and helpful, especially Kimberly Farrington. The rooms and lobby were clean and neat & the price was reasonable. The room was spacious. Encourage anyone looking...

My family and I had a wonderful experience at Hotel Ithaca during our recent visit. The staff was extremely friendly and responsive. The room and accommodations were 5-star. We will certainly be back again and would recommend them to our friends and family.

I did enjoy my stay at the hotel Ithaca. The service at checkin was excellent, the rooms are well furnished with a desk and really comfortable beds. The bathroom had a very spacious shower. I would like to have seen more iPhone chargers and a slightly bigger television. The reason for my four rating is that the hotel is under... More

Stayed here for a wedding. Doesn't look like much from outside but really good place to stay. Hotel staff courteous and helpful. Good food at restaurant and bar. Probably can get less expensive elsewhere but overall pleased. Pool was closed at the time. Rooms average but clean. Bathroom was small but excellent. Loved the shower- no tub in our room... More

Dear chabbe74, We appreciate your feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We apologize for the pool being closed. As I am sure you may have heard, the city of Ithaca had been having challenges within the recent past with their water, due to the area having a very dry season. We are glad to report... More
