There is nothing spectacularly good or bad about this hotel. It is a nondescript airport hotel that could be just about anywhere in North America. The rooms are clean and have some important amenities such as a refrigerator and a microwave. The breakfast is probably better than you might generally expect. However, the hotel is starting to show some wear... More

We stopped here as a halfway point on a family trip from Ohio and Boston, and there's not too much to say about it. It was close to the highway and easy to find. We had to wait for check-in because there was a Phish concert going on nearby (and there was a very unhappy hippie in the lobby also... More

Extremely mediocre Holiday Inn Express. I've generally had really good experiences with this chain, but not at this location. Rooms don't look like they've been remodeled in quite some time -- you know, dated wallpaper, carpet, wall hangings, etc. And when I stayed there, the clerk at check-in was extremely apathetic - ignored me at first, then asked my name...

The Holiday Inn Express at Syracuse Airport was clean and comfortable. Good hearty breakfast buffet included. Easy to schedule free shuttle to/from airport. Nice helpful staff. Reasonably priced. Discounts for extended stays. Ask at check-in for discount for skipping daily maid service. Across street from gasoline station to fill your rental car tank quickly.

We arrived just before 5pm (2 hours after check-in began) and were told they didn't have a clean room for us. We had to wait in the lobby for 25 minutes before we could check in. Very annoying after a long day of travel. The walls and ceiling are paper thin. We heard every word our side neighbors said (everything... More

Stayed here for 1 night on business. Close to airport, room was clean and in good condition, breakfast was good as well being standard HIE fare. No complaints. Several good restaurants in the area for dinner/lunch.

This hotel is clean, comfortable and close to the airport. We also had a great meal at the Clam Bar, which is 5 minutes away. Good choice! Staff is friendly and the Keurig in the room makes good coffee!

On our way home to Ontario from a trip to Maine and New Hampshire we spent our last night before the border at this hotel. We've been coming there since it opened in 2009. It was a clean, comfortable space to relax and get a good night's sleep. Unfortunately, the quality of rooms has steadily gone downhill. Hallway carpets -... More

Stayed there for a couple nights on a business trip. Its what you would expect from a holiday Inn Express. Nothing special but nothing wrong. It was clean. Lot of space for eating and the lobby. Workout area was lacking.

We had an early flight out and this was just what we needed. We drove up the night before from the Finger Lakes, had a nice dinner at 317, took a five minute drive to the airport the next morning.
