Stayed for 5 nights in mid-January 2014. This is a very dated and limited hotel. The rooms are spacious, but that's about it. The ancient in-room aircon unit would randomly spring into life until I had to turn it completely off. The bathrooms look about 40+ years old and towels were definitely well used.
Breakfast is totally carbohydrates - almost no fresh food (few bananas), only muffins, bagels, waffles, cheese, sugar, oh and more sugar... Very limited and un-exciting. Eat down the street at the local deli - much better choice. Distinct absence of staff at breakfast and everything was disposable...
handy for Cornell University, which is where I was visiting, but transport needed for central Ithaca. As another reviewer has stated, eat 300m away in Agava - ate there most nights.
