College Interviews--Don't worry!

Add to your agenda The Country Inn & Suites By Carlson of Ithaca, Ithaca, New York when scheduling your College visits and interviews to either Ithaca College or Cornell University. The reception area has a warm and cozy atmosphere, the kind you would expect at a country ski resort. Our room had the cushiest beds and the PLUSHEST goose down comfortors. (Don't worry students; you'll have a great nights sleep and ace your interviews after sleeping in these beds. Just watch out that you don't oversleep!) The support staff too was extremely helpful. Not only did they recommend a great restaurant for dinner but they also drove us there! We highly recommend the Country Inn in Ithaca.

Nice Hotel in Ithaca

This is my second time staying at a Country Inn. I would highly recommend this hotel chain to someone looking for a reasonably priced and comfortable hotel. The Country Inn in Ithaca looked to be fairly new. So the facilities were in excellent condition. The rooms were fairly large and have a separate living room. There was a free breakfast buffet. The location is excellent if you're visiting Ithaca College and/or Cornell University, which was the purpose of our trip. It is also convenient to Watkins Glen. I will use this hotel again on my next trip to the Ithaca region. Great hotel for the money.

Had a great dinner at the Boat Yard. On a previous visit to the area we ate at Maxie's Supper Club, which is also very good.

Great value, great staff

About 2 miles outside of the city and quiet. A take-out restaurant and convenience store very nearby - can walk. Nice, cozy decor. The complimentary breakfast offered 2 hot choices, in addition to the standard cereal & donuts. Had some trouble getting the wireless internet to work in my room consistently, but was able to use the conference center,which had 2 computers and was key-card accessible. Plenty of free parking. Great value. Could have found a hotel/motel right in the city but the cost would have been a lot more for the convenience. I would definitely stay here again. This is one of the newer hotels in the area. Many are out-of-date and a little run-down.

I enjoyed a nice dinner at the Mahogany Grill in downtown Ithaca. Moderate price and nice ambience. Parking is free in the downtown garage after 5 pm.

Clean rooms, friendly staff A+

Upon visiting Ithaca and Corning, we stayed here and were pleaseantly pleased with the Hotel cleanlyness and friendly staff. Its just a five minute drive to downtown Ithaca. Its right around the corner of Buttermilk Falls and shopping areas. They served complementary hot and cold breakfast, and you can make your own waffles!

Stayed for conference

The hotel and rooms were extremely well kept, it was like a bed and breakfast feel. Comfortable, quiet, had a fridge which was very convenient. The only "complaint" is that the shower drain was not draining so well.
