“Good value for a quick night while on the road”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

We are somewhat nervous when traveling because of all the bugs out there. But my sense of economy got to me and I didn't want to drop $125 - 140 for one night's sleep. This hotel is a little worn, but it was clean, convenient, easy to find and surprisingly quiet. There is no elevator so beware of second story rooms if you are handicapped. They have a hot breakfast in the morning and popcorn and cookies in the evening. We found the staff to be polite and pleasant. If they would replace the worn carpeting with a wood floor, this place would be super. Great bed, good nights sleep, no bugs, we were happy.

We stayed one night at this motel a few miles north of Elmira. Because it was an Econo Lodge we did not have high expectations, but were pleasantly surprised with the motel, staff, accommodations,etc. It is a two story place and we had a quiet room on the second floor away from the Interstate. Very comfortable king size bed, microwave, fridge and coffee maker, desk and free wifi. Staff members were very pleasant and the office had free cookies and pop corn available. Breakfast was good with a number of choices--cereal, bagels, yogurt, juice, waffles and packaged cheese omlettes that were cooked and sausages.

The motel is right off I-86 and sits in a commercial area with a number of shopping malls and restaurants. You can walk a short distance to the Applebee's nearby. The motel does not have a pool or elevator, but has easy parking around the building..

If in the area we would stay at this Econo Lodge again. It is in a good central location for touring this section of New York state.

First time staying at this hotel it was a good experience. The staff was very nice no matter what time it is. rooms are very clean its in a good area. they had room so I could park my truck. I would stay here longer but with my job I have to travel all over the region. They have a hot breakfast in the morning and at night they have popcorn and cookies in the lobby with free DVD rentals.

Good Value! Stayed two nights - very convenient off of the highway. Remember it is a two story hotel with no elevator - and that is not a problem for us. The first floor the rooms are outer entrances from the parking lot. On the second floor, the rooms are entered via an interior hallway. The staff is very friendly, efficient, and helpful. The rooms are clean. There is a fridge and a microwave (both worked fine.) The bathrooms are small - very tight between the door and the tub / toilet. Overall we are not there to stay in the room, only to sleep and shower and get out to enjoy the area. Breakfast is good - you can find yogurt, cereal, bagels, breads, muffins, a waffle maker, and at times fruit. We have stayed here several times without any issues an would stay here again.

We stayed at the hotel for six nights just to get away for awhile. We had a great time. The entire staff were very good and helpful. The Manager helped us carry some of our luggage to our room. The room was neat and clean.The TV'S were 42" with DVD players. This was important because one of us has vision problems. Housekeeping did a great job. The desk staff was always available to answer questions or just to chat with. The breakfasts were super. Comparitively, this hotel had much more than others that charge a lot more. The rates here are very affordable. Overall, we had a great time and we will be returning.

We have stayed at this hotel 4 times in 2012, 2 nights each time. Every time we have received the same excellent service. The front desk staff is always friendly and helpful and willing to accommodate any requests. This is not a 5-star by any means, but our rooms have always been clean and comfortable. The microwave, while outdated, worked as did the fridge. The breakfast area is small, but there is enough variety, hot and cold, to satisfy most tastes, and if not, there are many restaurants nearby. As well, there is a Top's supermarket within walking distance. I usually pick up fresh fruit at Top's to complement what's on offer, and if the breakfast area is crowded, I go back to my room and eat there and watch TV in comfort. The bathrooms are small, not the tub itself, but the area between the tub and door (and toilet) is tight. But the rest of the room is a good size.
