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

I stayed here midweek and got into the part of the hotel that has been renovated. Good bed and accessories in the bathroom Parking in garage across the street for $7.00 Exercise equipment could be upgraded and does not stay open 24/7. But as I got this for $38 on Priceline, I am not dissatisfied.

We had to reschedule a trip from last year due to an emergency. Despite the fact it was an online nonrefundable special, the staff allowed us to reschedule and even upgraded our room to a corner tower unit. The hotel is under renovation but we had a unique, lovely modern room with interesting view. Overall nice amenities. No time to... More

Great location! Liked that their was water and coffee in the pretty lobby. Parking was across the street in a garage. Beds and rooms were fine. Not great but not bad either. Pool was closed. Staff was efficient but not overly friendly but not rude either. It was just all just ok :)

Staying here makes one of my best hotel experiences! I made a reservation online but had to change it last minute due to flight delays and cancellations. When I called the hotel staff, they changed the dates and the room types of my reservations without any hesitation. The people working here sincerely thinks from the consumers' point of view and...

Dangerous electrical wiring in the room. Smelled like smoker room. A dump. For $250 a night I expected something more than a fleabag. When I showed GM the picture of a hot electrical junction box laying on the floor into which was plugged the AC he couldn't have cared less. It was 10:30 pm and he said we were welcome... More

I stayed at the room 218, in an old construction. The water was brown and the toilet in the room was leaking with noise. I wasn't sure if it's safe to take a shower, but the location was great. Stay away from this old construction unless you choose a room in a new construction.

We enjoyed the night at this hotel. We were in room 32 in the older section. You must be able to walk up one staircase, since there is no elevator for these rooms. Our room had recently been updated and we found everything clean and comfortable. The staff at the desk and in the restaurant were helpful and pleasant. Only... More

I had a terrible experience at this hotel a few years ago but was hopeful about the new management when I had to return for another business trip. No amount of paint or cosmetic improvements will address the major issues with this hotel. First and foremost the hotel is DIRTY. There are hairs and dirt in every corner and it... More
