So often workers in all sorts of businesses tend to treat even friendly customers, like us, as though we are bothering them. That wasn't the case here. From check-in to check-out we were met with friendly and helpful dispositions. Thank you. We had four in the room and didn't even need to ask for extra towels. It's not a hotel... More

Stayed here over Thanksgiving break as my parents live nearby. The rooms are spacious for the price you pay and offer all of the basic amenities, unlike some other budget properties. The front desk clerk was very helpful. Free breakfast buffet was an added bonus.

We were in Ithaca for a concert and needed a base camp. It's location was on the main HWY but slightly north of Ithaca. finding it wasn't obvious. We quickly figured out we needed to go through the Mall parking lot (which was 95% empty) to get to the hotel parking lot. The other guests were as unmemorable as we... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean room and clean hotel. Good breakfast, better than I expected. Of course, it's not fancy, but we didn't expect it to be. The staff members were delightful and did a great job of making us feel welcome.

Room was clean 2 queen beds, no rooms had king beds. Bathroom small, not much room for toiletries. No elevator to 2nd floor, must use staircase. Suggest first floor rooms if you mind caring your suitcase up a flight of stairs. Close to Highway, shopping,movie theater etc. Approx. two miles to center of downtown Ithaca.

Ideal location: Close to Ithaca Malls, Cornell University, and major highways. Friendly Service: people are just plain nice! Hot breakfast: Exceeds our expectation of continental breakfast with hot items like eggs, sausages, bacon, and pancakes. It's an older establishment but clean and comfortable.

We reserved our room on the Choice website without problem. Check in was quick and the staff was friendly. We were in the area to hike at the state parks and this hotel was centered in the areas we were going. Our room was a clean basic room. Just as we expected at this price point. We did find the...

We stayed here for one night on our way from Philadelphia to Niagra Falls. It was the best rate so we figured we could handle anything for one night. The front desk staff was extremely friendly. The rooms weren't anything special but they were clean and the complimentary breakfast was fine. I would stay again.

I have stayed there a few times (not on my dime but the businesses'). Typically it has been one of the few available locations. In general, the rooms have been musty, but I figured it was reasonable for what was likely being paid.
