I booked this hotel for 1 night because we wanted to visit the Corning Glass Museum of Glass (15 minutes drive) the next day. Hotels in Corning were a bit more pricy, and I was using points and needed two rooms, so this was the best I could do. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the hotel was (it looked brand new) and how well it fit all of our needs.
My only complaint was check-in took a while because, even though I requested two rooms together for our family of 6, they didn't have any king rooms near a room with two queens. The woman at the registration desk tried her best, hence the long wait, but in the end we ended up having to give up the king, in order to get a room near the kids.
As other reviewers have mentioned there are no great views from any rooms, because the hotel is smack in the middle of a big outdoor shopping mall. However, the convenience of having a Walmart a few steps away was great. We were on a week-long road trip and we were able to restock on kosher food and snacks.
The rooms were good size, with tasteful decor. The rooms had a microwave and small fridge, which was key for us since we don't eat in restaurants. The beds and pillows were as nice as those at higher-end hotels.
The continental breakfast was well stocked and the food manager was kind enough to let me look at the packaging for the items that were put out, so I could see if it had a kosher hechsher. Many items did, so we ended up being able to eat a good breakfast before checking out.
We were all impressed with the hotel and I would definitely stay here again if we end up in the area.
