This was a good stop on my way across I-90 in NY. Visitors need to know that it's in a rather unusual location. Not the typical retail area with restaurants in the same area, but tucked away. Some good restaurants are less than 10 minutes away, and the staff is happy to help.

This hotel sits literally by itself you almost can't see it behind the tall grass that surrounds it. It is close to the Byway and not far from the Fairgrounds. Once you are there it is quiet clean and comfortable. The indoor pool was cloudy and a little too cold for me to use and you have to drive at... More

We stayed overnight at this Holiday Inn overnight on our way to Boston . The hotel is located pretty much by itself . Not to much around but the freeway is pretty close so easy to get to restaurants . It was very clean and large rooms. Check in was very good and easy. I would stay here again .

Despite being in the middle of nowhere, this hotel is outstanding. It is clean, quiet, the food is amazing. All of the staff were knowledgeable about the area, as we asked where to go for dinner. We stayed here on our way out of town for our honeymoon and were very pleased.

This is an absolutely great hotel for the price if you don't mind it not being in the city. It is a little gem situated seemingly nowhere, about 10 minutes from Syracuse. But the staff was excellent.

Nice hotel was clean and comfortable everything that you would expect. I find that I can find the same quality at hotels that are not as expensive though. Did not try the breakfast and the staff seemed pleasant enough, no one went out of their way for anything.
