I wanted to like this place after the front desk person was so very helpful. Alas, it was not meant to be. This place is very down-at-the-heels. Chipped & peeling paint, mildew everywhere (when you can’t smell it you can smell the air freshener used to cover it) and older furniture all point to a place that is operated on a shoestring.
When we parked the car we noticed a large barbeque and lawn chairs on the narrow grassy strip between the building and the parking lot. That told us there were probably people living full-time at this hotel. Needless to say, it turned out that barbeque was right outside our room’s window … and, of course, the party started late – right around the time we were trying to get to sleep (needed to hit the road early in the AM). That, plus one of the most uncomfortable beds we’ve ever slept in, added up to a less than optimal night’s sleep. The free breakfast bar was unappealing (bad coffee, stale carbs, no protein options).
On the positive side, it is inexpensive and the location is good; it's just off the interstate’s exit with two gas stations and some fast food franchises in sight … plus the local Cortland pizza place – Pontillo’s – delivered right to our room's door and their pizza was terrific! Can’t really recommend the hotel but can recommend Pontillo's pizza!
