Kind of a weird place. Not your typical hotel.

Posted Aug 19, 2013
Pros: Nice breakfast and staff
Cons: Repave parking lot. Try to make the plot on which the hotel is located more aesthetically pleasing.
Location: Ithaca. Great hiking, site-seeing, beautiful country
Room was fine except outlet was broken. Parking lot is full of pot holes. Breakfast was very good. It's in an industrial area, so not a pleasing neighborhood. The entire place should be updated. It's like it's straight out of the 60's.

Tired but adequate

Posted Aug 16, 2013
Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: Replace carpets, window treatments to block light, repave parking lot.
Location: Location felt safe, short drive into town. Buttermilk falls, commons area with funky shops and restaurants, Cornell ornithology lab, etc...
Friendly staff, great breakfast included, but hotel in serious need of sprucing up. Carpet in room looked filthy, no light blocking window treatment, parking lot a moonscape of potholes.

OK on a budget

Posted Aug 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
I stayed here for an event 30 or so minutes away. It was a busy weekend in the area so there was not much hotel availability. This place was tired. The hallways all smelled a little funky and the lounge chair in my room was visibly filthy. I wouldn't let me wife sit in it. The price was ok as I didn't have many other options but in the future I wouldn't go back. I've stayed at nicer motels for less money. This place needs an update.

Surprisingly good

Posted Aug 9, 2013
Ugly photo and dismal lot always put me off of staying here. I got a reservation as an Expedia hidden name hotel and found it surprisingly good. The room I was is, a suite on the second floor, was nicer than the rooms at the Econolodge or the Ramada near by. I don't know if the first floor rooms are as nice; the first floor hall had a musty smell.

very good for night staying

Posted Aug 6, 2013
Clean and comfortable room that has everything for sleepovers, with a king bed. Breakfast was better than expected, a buffet with hot meal selection. Location is around 6km from the downtown, close to highway and shopping outlets, very close to Cornell university. Price was very good.

Convenient to many Ithaca attractions

Posted Aug 5, 2013
Pros: Location, nice room, breakfast (which wasn't mentioned anywhere we noticed.)
Cons: Older property under renovation, but our room was just fine, as was the pool and lobby/breakfast area.
We bought lunches at the Ithaca Bakery, a few blocks away. Easy access to Cornell arboretum, sapsucker woods, and a short drive to various gorges. Easy travel to Corning or Watkins Glen as well

Convenient to Cornell and Ithaca College

Posted Jul 29, 2013
Pros: Convenient to colleges; rates were good; mattresses and linens were good.
Cons: Curb appeal!!! Looks like a factory. New parking lot. New rugs and paint in the hallways.
Location: We were touring colleges, so this hotel was very convenient.
We arrived after 11 pm. Parking lot was dark and in terrible condition - needs to be re-paved! Front desk help was friendly and efficient. Hallway rugs are filthy! Room rug was a little better. One of the keys did not work in the door. We were locked out of our room and had to return to the front desk for a new one. Beds were comfortable, but couldn't wait to leave in the morning. Trash in the hallway!

Hotel looked abandoned.

Posted Jul 22, 2013
Pros: Staff was pleasant.
Cons: Parking lot, entrance, update rooms, several things needed repair, shower, sink...carpet...
Location: Convenient to visiting several state parks, Buttermilk Falls and downtown Ithaca
When we drove up, you couldn't even tell where the entrance was, no signage. The parking lot was empty, completely empty, we honestly thought it was an abandoned hotel. So many updates this hotel needed it's just too many to list. The staff was pleasant but it couldn't make up for the fact that this hotel was awful.
