Great stay when visiting Ithaca College or Cornell University. Clean, well managed property with a great breakfast and nice amenities like cookies and coffee all day. A great state park with a waterfall trail is just behind the hotel.

Stayed: October 2012

This is a wonderful hotel and had all the amenities we needed. When we visit our daughter at Ithaca College, we try to stay at this Inn. This hotel is the closes location to Ithaca College and its very quiet area. We stayed in the downtown area before which is very congested and noisy. This inn serves a free hot breakfast which is great way to start your day (waffle, sausage, cereal, and eggs). The rooms are very nice, spacious and comfortable. In addition, the service staff was very attentive and friendly. There are also fresh baked cookies, coffee and tea ready for all throughout the day. This hotel is nearby to all local attractions, downtown restaurants, wineries, Ithaca College and Cornell.

I highly recommended this place to stay!

Room Tip: The suites are very nice and private.

Sadly, this is a very nice hotel but I have to hammer them on the most important part of staying in a hotel: SLEEPING.

The beds are rock-hard, there is no blanket on the beds (it's hidden in the closet) and we had to use the heavy bed spread and turn up the AC. The pillows were like kleenex-filled bags. No support at all.

We slept little more than 1 hour at a clip and woke up in pain each morning.

Housekeeping also was lacking. Toilet paper rolls were at 15% each. Mirror was not wiped.

Free breakfast was good and there was 24hr hot coffee available.

Management - you have a nice place here. Buy better pillows and keep the blanket either on the bed or visible.

Also - too expensive ($420+ for Fri + Sat stay)

I'm so sorry to hear you did not sleep well. Beds are certainly a matter of taste, and with that in mind we keep foam pillows and blankets in the closets for our guests to change if they choose not to use the feather pillows on the beds or the duvet. Having a choice is nice and giving these options, it is our hope to not dissapoint any of our guests.

We stayed for 2 nights to visit my daughter at Cornell. We paid for a 1 bedroom which we found was very clean and well maintained. Our room came with a mini fridge, microwave and 2 TV's. I was able to use the business center which was nice but only 1 of the 2 PC's in the room was working. This hotel also has an indoor swimming pool, hot tub, and fitness room, which can be used until 12 midnight which was really great. Also, hot breakfast was included with plenty of choices including, yogurt, fruits, cereals, oatmeal, bagels, donuts, muffins, waffle maker, french toast, eggs, sausage, juices, coffee and tea. The staff was very friendly and courteous and we appreciated the staff who made us feel at home with cookies and coffee/tea in the lobby.

Our room came with a jacuzzi, it was a very large room, and everything was spic and span. Breakfast was good as well, typical hotel continental breakfast fare. The only thing I wished for was a wall around the jacuzzi, so the room would not get wet.

Room was very nice. Bed was excellent and well set up with a fridge and microwave. Cookies and tea were nice in lobby. I would recommend this hotel. Location is close to Ithaca college and not too far from Cornell. There are no real restaurants close so plan on driving around. Shuttle is available in a five mile radius.

The place is about 3 miles out of town, but everything was clean, beds were comfortable, staff was friendly, hot breakfast was included, and there were even free cookies when we arrived. Best place we've stayed in the area.
