“Very comfortable for our family”
Reviewed August 7, 2011

We drove to Niagara Falls for the memorial day weekend, and spent a night in Ithaca on our way to Canada. The hotel was really nice -- very friendly staff, a large room, cookies at check-in. We liked that we could tuck the kids into bed in one room, then stay up and watch a movie in the suite.

The next morning, I took the kids to the pool, while my husband used the fitness room. The pool was clean and the water was very wam. We were the only ones in the pool that morning, but I think it's probably one of the better hotel pools that we've ever used.

My boys also really enjoyed the breakfast offerings: muffins, juice, fruit, oatmeal, bacon and scrambled eggs. There were lots of items to choose from, and my kids ate well.

The hotel was very easy to find, even on a stormy night with crazy hailstones!

When we got to Niagara Falls, we checked into a different chain hotel. But right next to it was another Country Inn & Suites. Based on our experience in Ithaca, I wished we had checked into a Country Inn again.

A family of 6, we stayed in a suite which was dark but adequate. Air conditioning temperatures vary widely between bedroom and lounge (so if you're at the right temperature in the latter, your co-travellers will be under blankets). Clean little pool, and easy to find on route 98. Best feature is that it's right next to the Italian Carry Out which has very good pizzas. Oh, and the breakfast room is tiny - so on a busy morning get down early (or late).

We were travelling with our daughter on a college search trip and chose this hotel for its location very close to Ithaca College. It was almost perfect. The one bedroom room was very spacious and clean. The complimentary breakfast was adequate. We stayed 2 nights and have really no complaints other than more fruit and healthy choices for breakfast, and the pool was small. Nevertheless, we will definitely stay here again if our daughter attends either school.

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and have no complaints - we will work on maintaining a better stock of fresh fruit as these seem to fly out of the building! We look forward to seeing you again.

We have stayed here three times now, visiting local relatives. who live nearby, so the somewhat out-of-town location was an advantage for us. We loved the suite set up. One of us could read while the other slept. The extras include a TV in each room, generous sized refrigerator, microwave, and coffee setup. The lobby also has coffee and cookies available all day. All was very clean. The bathroom allows plenty of space for dopp kits. Bed is comfortable. Front desk was very courteous. We did not have breakfast, opting to eat with our local family instead, but it looked like there were enough choices for all. My difficulty connecting to the wireless network on my iPad was quickly resolved by a quick tip from the front desk.

Hair on the bedspread, jacuzzi jets broken. Could not drain jacuzzi, because the drain pull didn't work. Finally the body lotion jar was almost empty; obviously recycled. EEWWW!

I was happy with my choice to stay here the weekend of the Cornell Reunion. It is a newer hotel and simply because of that alone it is nice. The only places in ithaca that i maybe would prefer to stay would be HIlton Garden Inn and The Statler but those were both sold out.

The rooms are actual suites with door separation so if you have babies or kids it would be a good option.

The beds were comfortable.

the first room i had, the ceiling in the shower was moldy. It looked like there had been some pipes leaking above. anyway it was gross and I asked to change rooms and was given a new room with no problem. The manager was leaving a note about it to the maintenance person to check out.

Overall, if i come back to ithaca i would consider staying here again because the furnishings are new and nice and the hotel is clean.
