Ramada Ithaca Hotel & Conference Center
Ranked #21 of 22 Hotels in Ithaca
Reviewed November 11, 2012

This was our second stay at this hotel. Booked two rooms on October 13, 2012. We filled out a form asking about our stay and we stated that we had no phone...couldn't make any calls including to the lobby and that there were ants crawling around the dirty bathroom. It is now over one month since our stay and the hotel never even contacted us or offered some form of incentive to come back.

One redeeming factor is the wonderful staff in the hotel restaurant at breakfast. Friendly and great service.

Paid $200.00 a night for two "double" beds that were slightly larger than a twin. Hotel is poorly designed making it nearly impossible to get directly to your room with your luggage.

Intro:

If you've read the other TripAdvisor reviews, you already know not to stay here. It may be that you're considering the Ramada because you're familiar with the chain, and most of the other hotels are full. With two large schools in the area, Ithaca has several weekends where all the lodging is occupied, and this keeps marginal places like this Ramada in business.

Stayed here in October 2012 for 3 nights (for business) during a Cornell's Parent's Weekend.

Summary:

Book early so that you can find another place to stay. This is worse than any Ramada you've stayed in.

Pros:
- Wireless internet connection was free and easy to use. (No passwords or login screens.)
- Window curtains were able to completely block outside light.
- Included in-room safe.

Cons:

- Room: The room had a very moldy, funky smell. This did not dissipate, so we had to sleep with the window open. The room was extremely dilapidated -- it should have been torn down or gutted long ago. The carpet was torn or worn through in patches completely to the underlayer. There was a three inch hole in the wall where cable TV and power wires came through from who-knows-where. A large burn mark in the bathroom sink linoleum (this is a non-smoking room) and large gap in the entry door match the cheap and well-worn furniture. I assume something horrible happened in this room in the 70s, and management has been afraid to enter it since.

- Noise: Besides noise from the hallway, the walls are quite thin, so you can hear your neighbor quite clearly. The cleaning staff hung out in front of the door for about 30 minutes having a quite personal conversation, so that also leads to ...

- Cleanliness: room was only passably clean. Coffee maker had been stored away when dirty. Shower did not drain properly; you end up standing in a few inches of water even during a short shower. Shower head was mounted very low (5 feet?)

- Staff:
Front-desk during check in was neither helpful nor friendly.

- Location:
The Ramada is in the NW corner of Ithaca. It is not convenient to Cornell or Ithaca College, or to the center of town. It is convenient to a construction site at the rear of the property, where heavy machinery will ensure that you don't oversleep.

I have stayed at this hotel several times when no other options were available. It gets worse every time I stay there. The last two times, the bathroom tiles and tub had mold. It was disgusting. Also, I could hear people on both sides and above me urinating during the night. Nice, huh? The bar area floods every time it rains and nothing has been done about it. Last winter, I actually had ice on the INSIDE of the window in my room. Needs a major overhaul. When I told the front desk about the mold at check out, they didn't seem at all concerned. They just said sorry. We will make note of it.
