“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2008

We stayed here on a Wednesday night in June. Everything was adequate to above average; we had no problems at all. Staff was helpful with directions, room was clean. Breakfast was typical continental-breakfast type: coffee, tea, bagels, fruit, packaged danish, juice. Overall, this is a good hotel for the price.

  • Liked — Location was convenient for us.
  • Disliked — A/C hard to control -- too cold or too hot.

Great one night stay while staying in town for a Cornell student. The hotel was very clean, staff were very helpful with directions and dinner recommendations. The room had recently been renovated and bedding was newer quality. Continental breakfast was more than adequate with fresh fruit and yogurt offered as well. I would definitely come back to this Super 8.

As with many things in life it all depends on what you are looking for.Having a child at Ithaca and making trips to the area over the past 3 years I will tell you this is not a bad place. We have stayed at 7 different properties in the area from the overpriced ones to finally a decently priced one, the Super 8. It is clean,it is comfortable,it is a decent place to lay your head. If you are looking for 4 star experience this is not for you. If you are looking to save some money and not overpay for your stay then this is the place. Yes they still offer some smoking rooms and sometimes you will get a faint smell,it is tolerable. This property ranks above both the Ramada and the Econo Lodge up in the Triphammer area,and is cheaper. Like I said depends on what you are looking for.

The Super 8 always impresses me with comfortable furnishings -- bed, bath, desk and comfy chair in room with one queen sized bed -- and this one was equally comfortable -- for a great price! The staff was young and lacking in professionalism/polish, but they were helpful, courteous and efficient.

My only complaint is that the sound from the halls, even whispers but especially opening/closing of doors, was very loud. I work up in the middle of the night to people knocking on the wrong doors, opening their rooms, etc.

Breakfast, included in the price, was pretty meager. Cereal, bagels, coffee juice. I was expecting a bit more.

I stayed at this Super 8 for one night in March of this year. I was throughly impressed. The hotel was spotless, my main concern, and the staff cheerful and very helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone needing a place to stay in Ithaca. I have stayed at many Super 8 / Motel 6 types of places and this one was definitely the best thus far.

The good first: the night desk clerk, and morning desk clerk, both women, were considerate, kind & helpful.

The rest of the story: We arrive around 9:00 PM for a one night stay. The smell of mildew throughout the entire first floor hallway was overpowering, but we figured we'd check out the room to see if it was bearable as it was too late to consider going elsewhere (we already knew that many/most other places were full). We opened the room to find beds unmade with linens piled in a heap on the floor. The kind staff person found a second floor room for us and apologized for the inconvenience.

Though the hallway upstairs was just as dark & gloomy looking, the smell on the second floor wasn't quite as bad so we decided to stay (what choice did we have with two little kids in tow?) What a depressing night. The carpet looked and felt dirty, there were large stains on the chairs, tiles were mildewed & stained, and the double bed sagged horribly. To add insult to injury, they were doing road work outside the hotel, so we were woken by construction equipment early the next day.

I am absolutely mystified by the positive reviews this place got. I've stayed in other "no frills" hotels (really all we needed was a place to sleep for a few hours) but this was really unacceptable.

  • Liked — Nice staff
  • Disliked — Dirty, smelly, dark, dingy, tired, uncomfortable.

This hotel is definitely a Five Star Hotel that is so clean, it made me feel that I paid too little for a room that was neat, clean and no problems. The front desk was extremely helpful and the benefits of being in the hotel were much more than I ever expected to get in another hotel. I am even using the free Internet in this hotel to send this message. They have a free breakfast, free Internet with paper to print out information, free exercise room and great cable TV. This is the best kept secret in Ithaca and I LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
