We stayed one night on 09/22/15. We booked online through the Holiday Inn site - that way we had more specific choices, could apply our Holiday Inn points, and could pick a more specific room - in our case, we wanted a first floor room. Booking was simple on their site, and could be cancelled at no charge even up... More

My family travels often; flights, long road trips, and weekend getaways. This was our best hotel experience yet. All the staff was friendly and helpful. The room was immaculate. The cot, we requested for our four-year-old, was already set up in our room upon arrival. A wonderful sit-down breakfast (not muffins and cereal) was included. The pool was well maintained... More

We stopped over-night on our return visit to Niagara Fall. At registration I inquired about local restaurants and was surprised that the desk clerk actually called 3 or 4 restaurants with our inquiries. Since it was Labor Day many were closed but she located the ones open for business for us ... very helpful. Our room was better than average... More

The rooms are nice size, brand new tvs, comfortable beds and pillows, microwave and refrigerator, modern bathroom, quite comfortable. And compared to mynlast Holiday Inn stay a few months ago in NYC which cost $399 plus tax for a room half the size, the 95 dollar price tag was a welcome relief

Not a Holiday Inn regular but since this was pretty much the only hotel in Elmira NY, we ended up here. I was a little surprised at the cost (a bit high for a HI) but it equaled out since everyone is given a $10.00 per person credit for breakfast.The wait staff were great and the food was quite good,...

I was surprised to see that there were ample electric plugs and USB sockets for the demands of charging modern electronics when traveling. The hotel was clean and the staff was extremely helpful and polite. Each staff member greeted us as they passed by. That was very friendly and inviting.

Room was big. Got voucher for $10 off breakfast (August promotion) and options were reasonable enough for this to be basically free. Two pools, one outdoor and one indoor though didn't get a chance to try them out. Wish I could have stayed longer!

Very nice clean hotel. The staff were pleasant. Hotel runs shuttle to a casino. There is a nice restaurant on site. The only complaint is that there is a lack of places to eat locally but this is hardly the hotel's fault.
