“Wonderful Staff”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

The staff goes out of its way here to make sure your needs are met and if something is amiss to fix it or compensate you. Whirlpool in room did not work and could not be fixed so staff took 50 per cent off bill. This is very generous. Othewrwise, room was great, spacious, good bed, good flat screen TV, excellent amenities for the class of hotel.

Nice Hampton Inn. Hard to review the actual facility because they were undergoing a major renovation that had the whole first floor ripped up and machines buzzing. But the people were so nice and made that extra effort to be sure you weren't inconvenienced by the construction. Very friendly and helpful staff, easy check in and check out. They took very good care of the temporary kitchen facility; always fresh coffee, hot water and fruit. The place is pet friendly too, and I always value any hotel that allows pets and doesn't charge more for the pet than me! It's close to Cornell U and Ithaca College, and only a couple minutes to the main hum of The Commons and very good restaurants. I'd absolutely stay there again and look forward to the completed renovations because I'm sure it will be nice. Again, thanks to a great staff. Recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the side that isn't along Elmira Road - that's a main route and traffic ca...

Stayed here over Thanksgiving while visiting family. It was one of the nicest Places I had stayed in a LONG time. I am so weirded out by hotels, but this place was SO NICE and VERY VERY Clean! I will be staying here every time I go back to see my in-laws! And the Free Breakfast was perfect! Thank you!

Very nice Hampton Inn located close to Cornell campus and right in the heart of every type of food option you can think of. Clean hotel with friendly and helpful desk staff. Small fitness room but it had basic cardio equipment and no one else came in during my one hour workout. Free cookies, newspaper and a standard Hampton buffet breakfast. Very convenient hotel for a mid week business stay. Interesting option in this college town to have food delivered directly to your room from a wide variety of restaurants for only a modest delivery fee.

This is my first stay for a weekend at a Hampton. I found the parking convenient with a good feeling of security. The front desk lady's name was Pat. She was incredibly helpful, accommodating and she showed absolute sincerity when she went over the amenities/policies that are in place to ensure the comfort of myself and my family (husband and dog). Both of my parents are travel agents and frequently review destination locations with viciously discriminating tastes and opinions. I understand why this is important to travelers that want the best for their hard earned money and I can confidently report that the Hampton Inn has exceeded my expectations. I would definitely reccomend this hotel and will certainly visit again in the future. :)

We were visiting our son at Cornell, and stayed here for 3 days. Although this property is closer to Ithaca College, it is still very convenient to Cornell and to downtown Ithaca (not walking distance, though). The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful, and the property was well maintained. Rooms were nice and clean, and the beds were pretty comfortable. The Hampton Inn is definitely one of the better options when visiting Ithaca.

We were visiting Cornell so we wanted a Hotel not very far. Hampton Inn Ithaca was just perfect for our purpose. The room was very comfortable. The ambience of the Hotel was pretty good too. The front staff were very helpful,what with giving directions, storing the luggage, keeping our packages etc.Plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Would recommend Hampton Inn for anyone visiting Ithaca.

Room Tip: I think all their rooms are pretty good.
