Bait and SwitchPosted Nov 17, 2014
We had a prepaid reservation for a non-smoking room with 2 double beds (paid extra for this). Arrived to find no double room bed rooms available. They gave us 2 smoking rooms because they could not accommodate us otherwise. Rooms were smelly and thus uncomfortable. Would not stay here again.

Excellent location for a visit to CornellPosted Nov 9, 2014
The location of this motel is excellent for visiting Cornell, especially for First Year Parents Weekend. The motel is 10 mins drive from Ithaca Airport and 10 mins drive from Cornell's North Campus Housing where all the freshman are housed. It is a basic motel, as expected for the price. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. It was a little hard to find at first because the "e" sign for the Econolodge is very small. I would recommend the motel to put up a larger sign. Until then, guests need to remember to turn into the plaza entrance by the Friendly's restaurant.

The only real negative - breakfastPosted Nov 8, 2014 on Hotels.com
Room was quite nice, as was overall service. Breakfast was unacceptable. No cereal, yogurt or bread that wasn't pre-packaged and previously frozen. The only thing fresh were a couple apples and oranges that were out. Everything else was in an individual pre-packaged bag.

I won't go back to this motel.Posted Nov 3, 2014
Pros: Good location and the shuttle driver was very nice.
Cons: Create a staff break room so that the maintenance personnel doesn't have to congregate (and discuss hotel guests) in the lobby. Remodel.
Location: Good area for shopping; the motel is next to a strip mall and across the street from the Ithaca Mall.
This motel wasn't as clean as I'd expected. The room was dingy and in desperate need of updating (dirty lamp shades, dilapidated drapes, broken tiles, hair in the hair dryer, etc.) Some members of the staff were unprofessional, but the front desk personnel was helpful. The bed was comfortable and the TV was good.

Adequate, but way overpricedPosted Oct 18, 2014 on Hotels.com
While the location was convenient for our purpose for staying, the cost was way too high for the quality of the hotel. I have stayed in hotels that were much nicer for a third of the cost. I do not understand how they can justify $179.00 a night on a Friday or Saturday. The "new" renovations looked like they were performed self-help as it appeared pretty shoddy and definitely not performed by professionals. The breakfast was adequate, but for $179.00 a night, I was expecting better. Would I stay there again? Probably not. I would rather drive a little further to save money and possibly stay at a nicer hotel.

This place was terrible—so terrible that we left a day early, losing that night's payment, and were glad to do it. The curtains were stained, the bed spreads pocked with cigarette burns, the toilet seat (!!) stained. Disgusting.
