A small but convenient detail: I did like your disposable, solid pieces of soap, and convenient bottles of shampoo - instead of the unpleasant, wall-mounted containers of gel that many hotels these days force their clients to use.
During a heat wave (95 °f) the air conditioning did feel slightly inefficient (presuming/hoping that I had managed to set it to maximum). Upon checking in (on the first evening of my stay, actually after midnight) I was told by your reception that my Master Card does not work. Fortunately, I found a friend whose Visa card worked on first attempt. The next morning I was told that my card after all is OK. Never before (anywhere in the world) has my card failed. It is of course possible that it failed this time. However, I would have appreciated feeling secure even without my friend's serendipitous appearance; i.e. having been given by the hotel a second chance - because you did have my credit number and expiration name, and my name on the card (cf. my passport) for guarantee of legality. OK, it's a wild world; however, for some time I did fear of being kicked out to the street, after midnight and thousands of miles from home.
I didn't like that the pool was down and they didn't let anyone know when purchasing the room
Comfy bed, nice room.
The loud traffic noises and sirens all night long.
Location was good. Room was comfortable but nothing special.
Ceiling was crumbling, Coffee was put out in lobby but not hot. First at night and then again in the morning.
The location of hotel was perfect..walking distance from restaurants and near Cornell.
Room was a little dirty upon arrival (garbage left on floor from previous guest) and our hallway/room location was very noisy. (But I think there was a HS boys' team of some sort near us so there were circumstances...however, walls are thin and pkg lot was right outside our window!)
Location to Ithaca College.
Had to wait for a room after accidentally being assigned to one that had someone else in the room already. Kind of creepy feeling, wondering if the system would allow similar mistakes.
Staff - from the front desk to the room service folks - were incredibly kin dand customer service oriented. None of the noise issues others have described.
Floors were dusty as others have described.
Great location....was in walking distance to Ithaca Commons
small rooms...no fridge or continental breakfast
Staff very helpful
Sheets were dirty
Loaction...room size....bed....staff...parking...all great
no one to help with tge luggage while no elevators available
Went to check in at 445 pm and told room not ready because they allowed 60 highs cool students stay until 3. Also waited 15 minutes together to be able to check in. Rugs were dirty, sheets don't stay on bed,air conditioner very noisy as well as fan in bathroom Had stayed there when it was a holiday day inn and so much nicer then Kind of dumpy now and not worth the money In all fairness the manager credited us fifty dollars
Friendly staff, extremely comfortable bed, nice indoor pool. A restaurant is attached to the hotel for those who don't want to venture out at night. Downtown is easy walking distance--just a block or two away.
I was given a room on the second floor that could be accessed only by stairs--no elevator, which was difficult to manage with a heavy suitcase. The first night the hotel was overrun by about 200 high school students in town for a convention and it was chaos. The next two nights were much quieter. Downtown Ithaca is a little sketchy (lots of aggressive panhandlers when I was there) and the hotel sits right on the edge of downtown. Walking there after dark doesn't feel entirely safe. You'll need a car to get to Cornell. Buses are an option but a rental car will make the trip much, much easier.
Basic room with good location for visiting Cornell
Staff at checkout didnt listen. Parking is in a public garage. Was told it was free at the weekend. It wasn't. Not a huge deal but would have been good to get accurate information
Efficient front desk. Good location for downtown Ithaca.
The hotel felt as well maintained and as clean as it could be, given its overall rundown state. Sheets smelled bleachy-clean, yet the decor and furnishings were quite dated. I feel like the next time I go to Ithaca, I'd rather pay more for a newer hotel.
