Not the sort of place you would want to hang out but it was adequate. The cleaning lady used my camera to take pictures of herself. They were very creepy pictures.

Stayed: March 2006

On our recent trip to Ithaca we chose the Hillside Inn due to it's close proximity to the Cornell Campus and inexpensive rates. We found our accommodation clean, comfortable, and about what we would expect for such a low rate ($65). Additionally we found the management to be just delightful. We would recommend the Hillside Inn to anyone looking for a clean comfortable room close to Cornell for a daily rate that cannot be matched.

We stayed at the Hillside Inn in Ithaca,NY on 10/28/2004. We picked it because it was $75 and walking distance to town. The place was absolutely filthy. The bathroom did not appear to have been cleaned in months. Definitely off the list of places to stay!!!

You can see many guests respond that the hotel is clean and pleasant, convenient to restaurants and scenic spots, and on the edge of the Cornell campus -- a short walk in. The rooms are cleaned daily and since 2007 when I came to the hotel as manager, it has been kept clean and maintained.
