Reviewed September 21, 2011

Stayed here for a second time while on college visits to Cornell. For a small town like Ithaca, the "chain" prices are out of sight .... the Embassy Inn gives you a clean, comfortable room at a VERY reasonable price, especially considering the overpriced market. Run by a very friendly family. For a clean, quiet place to sleep, and a quick grab and go breakfast - perfect.

We recently stayed here while visiting family in Ithaca & were very happy with our accommodations, especially considering the price, which was 50% less than our other options.

The room was clean and comfortable, the service good. There was a TV with cable, free wi-fi, a kitchenette with a small refrigerator, a small table with chairs, and enough counter & closet space for us to unpack. The shower was powerful & there was plenty of hot water. While the furniture was not deluxe it was in good repair. We really didn't plan to spend much time in our room so we didn't miss the "amenities".

The location is excellent - convenient to Cornell, as has been mentioned, but also convenient to NY route 13, which gives excellent access to Ithaca and the nearby state parks.

We spent four nights at the Embassy Inn on a Finger Lakes vacation. It is as billed, and ya get what ya pay for - and I mean that in a positive sense. There is no pool or other such amenities, but the price reflects this. If you are looking for a convenient place to spend the night and not a facility that provides a lot of extra's it's worth considering.

The motel is family run. And although the interiors are dated, it was acceptable kept and clean.

Horrible, horrible!! The room is very plain. No amenities what so ever. And the continental breakfast that they claim to have was basically non-existent!! No bagels, no toaster, no microwave, no juice!!! All they have is coffee, hot chocolate & sweet bread. Very, very disappointed from this place!!

Very clean, basic motel with basic breakfast. Short drive from Cornell. Owner gave me a hard time because I had my service dog with me.

Stayed here for two nights while attending a wedding held at Cornell.

Relative to the prices in the area, this hotel was a great deal -- paid about $200 after tax for two nights.

The room was basic but spotlessly clean. Strong air conditioner, good water pressure. Breakfast was simple -- individual cereals, coffee, orange juice, bananas and pastries. All perfect for grabbing and bringing on the road or back to the room. Parking is ample.

The hotel is run by a very nice family who lives on the premises. They clearly take pride in the hotel and each family member we encountered (daughter at breakfast, mother at check in, father later in the night), was cordial and not intrusive.

Overall Embassy Inn delivers what you pay for and is definitely well-worth the money. It's clean, cheery, basic and conveniently located.

The Motel was clean and good for a one night stay. The carpet smelled and needed cleaning. Breakfast consisted of wrapped pastries and no place to sit down. We booked thru expedia which quoted as a total price; upon arrival we were charged an additional 20% for taxes and booking fees.
