“A great staff at the HGI makes the difference”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

I recently stayed here for a weekend Ironman competition requiring early morning food and a late checkout. The staff were extremely courteous and accomodating and very helpful. When I needed a snack to eat or dinner recommendations, everything was already at their fingertips.

The rooms were a good size - meaning that you were not bumping into the furniture walking around the bed, the bathrooms were clean and everything was relatively new.

Please note, if you are going here for the pool, it is on the small size. Great for kids but don't expect to swim laps.

I could not have asked for a better experience.

Room Tip: This hotel is in a small industrial park near Carrier Circle and was relatively quiet so any room sh...

We stayed at this hotel and found out that they had charged our credit card an extra $40 per room. Additionally, they added another ten dollars per room at 2 a.m. which caused my credit card company to freeze my account as they feared fraudulent activity. I was told that so many people leave the hotel without paying that they charge $50 over for each room and then it comes off your credit card in a week or two.

Overall we were happy with our stay. The room was clean & tidy. We were looking forward to a quick breakfast and then out the door to a wedding. However, we were surprised to see this very nice hotel CHARGE 9.99 for a breakfast buffet. We have never had this happen before and found this quite costly with a family. This is an identical buffet that we have enjoyed in many other hotel chains for free. Very disappointed. Finding a less expensive breakfast place for our family that morning was time consuming. Shame on you Hilton! We will not stay here again unless that charge is dropped.

A year ago I gave this property a very mixed review, as the physical condition of the common areas and guest rooms had gotten a bit tired since my original stay in 2007. Furthermore, the quality of the breakfast cuisine had declined badly, and the warm beverage served bore no resemblance whatsover to coffee.

After two subsequent visits in September of last year and a third this month, I am happy to report that needed repairs have been made, the decor has been refreshed, the breakfast food quality is once again excellent and the coffee is actually now drinkable. The front desk staff and housekeeping personnel are excellent as always.

The only remain nit I can find to pick is that the in-room coffee is still terrible. Other HGIs can and do offer in-room coffee that is at least potable, but the Maxwell House offered in East Syracuse is inexcusably poor. How much more could it possibly cost to offer something at least modestly better in quality?

We have stayed at this hotel before, and stayed there this past weekend. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Kudos to Karen at the front desk - she is awesome!! We have dealt with Karen before, and not only is she efficient, she is helpful and a real delight.

Our first stay at this property was wonderful, absolutely flawless but unfortunately I can't say the same of our Easter weekend visit!
When we showed up at checkin time, 3:00 PM our room wasn't ready and Rick at the front desk was very friendly but when he called over his partner (manager?) he was mad at the world and not shy about it! I had asked for a room facing the front of the property and when he switched us we ended up in the back but we moved in for our 3 night stay, groceries and all.
During the evening when the sun went down we disovered that the heat in the room wasn't working. I'm hardy canadian stock and don't mind the cold but my wife was freezing every night but didn't want me to complain fearing the wrath of management and risk having to pack everything up and moving.

This was a horrible experience. They put me in a room over the kitchen. The kitchen fan is so loud it literally shakes the walls in the room. It sounds like loose wires flipping around in the ceiling. When I call the front desk, they tell me they will send maintenance to look at the shaking wall, 30 minutes later they call back and say it's the kitchen fan and it will go off at 10. Of course it will come back on in the morning. They also tell me that there is no other room and they can't move me. Never again and I recommend that you go somewhere else. There are lots of hotels in Syracuse and this one is not worth your time or money.
