Although listed as a complimentary continental breakfast, it is much more and one of the pluses about BW's. The staff was friendly and courteous. That said, Ithaca is way overpriced and one pays a premium for the proximity to Cornell. The size of the room was fine, although the set-up is a bit strange with multiple separate buildings, requiring one to go outside on the way to breakfast. There is no card key access required to enter the separate buildings. Carpet needed cleaning and the bathroom was in need of some cosmetic repairs. Portions of the parking lot are quite dark, and the address of the hotel is on a street where the driveway entrance was closed off with a chain. Unless one is willing to pay much more for their stay in Ithaca, this may be the best value, although not up to the quality of other Best Westerns where we have stayed.
