4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

This is a typical Fairfield Inn - wll maintained, clean, etc. What sets it a bit above the milieu is the quality and helpfulness of their staff, especially those at the front desk. They are knowledgeable about the surrounding area and go out of their way to be helpful to guests.

If your visiting the Finger Lakes region this is a wonderful place to stay. The hotel is first rate in all area's inside and out. First of all it's very clean, the staff is friendly and welcoming, the bedding is excellent and very comfortable, plenty of hot water and the drains drain [no backups]. They have a indoor pool and serve breakfast every morning. It is a great place and location to visit the area from.

We stayed here overnight before visiting the Corning Glass Museum. The hotel is a 5-minute drive from the Museum and just a quick on and off on the freeway. The property looks fairly new and it's quite clean. We had no reservations, we just walked in off the street. The hotel clerk automatically gave me their "best rate" when I presented my Marriott Rewards card. Our room was clean and quiet. The breakfast was included. It was fairly simple but it did the trick.

Upon arrival we were greeted by a very friendly desk clerk. She welcomed us and chatted just enough to be friendly without unnecessarily prolonging check-in. It was the day before Easter, so there were Easter egg shaped cookies on the counter for guests. Each of us also received a candy filled plastic egg. The desk clerk was helpful in suggesting restaurants and activities in the area. The night clerk greeted us when we returned that evening. He wished excitedly informed us that it was "only 20 minutes 'til Easter!" We were pleasantly surprised to hear people all over town acknowledging that it was Easter weekend - our hometown is so overrun with political correctness that no one would dare mention anything remotely religious to a stranger.
Our room was on the third/top floor. We were a bit concerned when we first walked in because the room had a slight musty smell. As soon as we got the air conditioner going, the smell went away. My 17 year old plopped down on the bed and swore he was never getting up because it was so comfortable. Being a 17 year old male, he managed to drag himself off the bed when dinner was mentioned.
The rooms were recently refurbished and are bright and comfortable. The bathroom was a bit on the small side - you cannot stand directly in front of the sink because the toilet is in the way. That didn't pose a huge problem for us since the vanity counter runs the length of the wall, as does the mirror.
The breakfast was typical of hotel breakfasts. They did have microwaveable breakfast sandwiches, fruit cups, danishes, hard boiled eggs, breads, bagels... The only fruit available when I arrived were green apples and navel oranges. In fairness, I arrived 3:45 into the Sunday breakfast hour with only15 minutes to spare.
If I ever visit Corning again, I will stay at the here.

Staf is very friendly and knowledgeable, hotel is clean, room is clean. I would go out for breakfast, the breakfast area is a bit small and we didn't like the food. Kids enjoyed the Easter cookies and candy.
It's a 2 minute drive to Market str. And the glass museum is also nearby.
We will definitely stay there again. Nice deal with AAA or Marriott membership.

Stayed one night on route to Gettysburg. Perfectly quiet and clean rooms. Inclusive breakfast was simple but actually very good. Lots of healthy choices. Fruit, yoghurt etc.

With spouse and two teenaged children. Will definitely consider staying again.

Honoured the Government rate which is better than most offer.

Room Tip: Top floor away from elevators very quiet.

Fairfield Inn and Suites are newly renovated they are going with a topical theme. Nice clean room, beds are new and very comfortable. The lobby is very nice and compact. Breakfast is very typical, fruit, muffins, eggs and waffles. Not too far from Elmira.

Room Tip: Any room would be good here
