“Wine Country weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Central location, great room, pleasant staff and close to everything. It's a little tricky to get to with assorted one way streets. But parking a plenty, very comfortable and quiet rooms, a standard complimentary breakfast, a nice exercise room too! Of the three local properties, it is now my choice in lodging.

Room Tip: Get a parking lot rear room.. Never stayed on the other side, but there is a highway out there?

Location was nice was able to walk around Auburn with little problem. The room was really small was glad we didn't spend anymore time there. The Inn doesn't have any really good gathering areas. There is a park a couple of blocks around that we were able to use as a dining area. There are many restaurants in the are though.

Room Tip: Find another motel

The "Inn" is centrally located to most of Auburn. There are several great restaurants close
( within walking distance ). We have been coming for several years and are never disappointed.
We normally take a Junior Suite which is fairly large. We stay here when going to the races at Rolling Wheels or Oswego and shopping in the area.
The rooms are always clean and comfortable. The beds are also comfortable.The staff are always friendly and accommodating if an issue arises.The free breakfast is good and fresh.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the back of the hotel are a little quieter.

My husband and I stayed there while in town to attend our nephew's wedding. The staff was friendly, courteous and professional!
The continental breakfast was good; standard items offered yet a bit of variety! They attentively checked to see what needed to be replaced and to keep the area clean.
Our hotel room was clean and comfortable. It was a standard size, but who spends lots of time in their hotel room while on vacation? They had a nice deck with umbrella covered tables where you could hang out.
My nephew had spent some time at Fort Drumm and many family members stayed here while visiting him. These are relatives who travel frequently yet they were comfortable suggesting that anyone coming to Auburn for the wedding, stay here as well! I would highly recommend this hotel and if I return to Auburn I will definately stay at this hotel!

Trying to plan an impromptu Saturday overnight in the Finger Lakes region mid-August can befrustrating. B&B's are booked. Drive home is just too far. We were glad to book this motel.

It is not an Inn. Don't be fooled by the name. It is a clean, bright, contemporary motel setup. Our room was small, tidily appointed, fresh and comfortable after a full day of touring the area. No pool. No restaurant. Breakfast bar was modest but sufficient. Fridge in the room will cost extra. Fluffy thick towels were appreciated, as was the oatmeal soap.

We do strongly recommend visiting the historical sights in Auburn and nearby Skaneateles. This could be the most affordable place to stay mid-state if you're planning to tour the FInger Lakes region, maybe spend big bucks at the upscale restaurants or wineries or attend the Skaneateles Music Festival. All good reasons to stay here for a night.

The Inn at the Finger Lakes provided a clean pleasant stay. The hotel was what we expected. We did have an issue but the manager responded quickly and appropriately to solve the problem. I feel things can happen anywhere, its how the management handles it that matters.

I travel for business quite frequently and was a bit reluctant to stay at a non-chain when my long-time boyfriend recommended it, however I was very pleasantly surprised by the Inn. The property is comfortable and clean and close to the Finger Lakes. The staff however, was incredible! I felt as if we were staying with friends of friends in the way that the staff was so warm and friendly and made great recommendations on where to eat (Doug's Fish Fry in Skaneateles is a MUST!) and what to do. They really care that you have a good time and get where you want to go - all you have to do is ask. We'll be back, when in the area.
