We got smoking room...

When we booked the room we asked for non-smoking room. However, the lady who checked us in gave me the room that is clearly the smoking room, which was unacceptable with traveling 2.5 year old boy. When we asked to get a different room, the lady said that when we book a room online there is no guarantee that we will get the room we need. (I am not sure whether this is true or not, but if it is true, then I won't / can't use this website again..) Eventually she gave me a non-smoking room and the stay was OK. But, I don't understand why she simply gave us the smoking room (even without asking me) in the first place, when there is a room available.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

I think the hotel is a bit expensive, considering that a short drive to Dryden will give you a better room or cheaper hotel. it is close to Ithaca but you still need a car to get to Cornell. So not much difference from driving from Dryden.

Recommended for value

It's ECONO-lodge. The price was reasonable. Rooms actually were well-equipped with a large mini-fridge, TV, microwave, free Wi-Fi, and in-room coffee. It is not luxurious by any means, but it is a reasonable place to hang your hat. The location is actually not too bad, it is close to Ithaca Coffee Co and Ithaca Bakery which are very nice. And the Sushi restaurant across the parking lot is a real find. It looks like nothing from the outside but it's the real deal once you walk in.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

It doesn't look like there's a lot around, but the intersection of Triphammer and SR13 actually has a lot of local spots that are quite good shopping, eating, and drinking. Don't hesitate to give something a try.

Good value for price

Definitely not luxurious, but better than expected from a two-star rating. Staff does everything they can for you, very convenient location.

Just Ok!

This hotel is in desperate need of up dating. While the rooms appeared to be clean, there were stained furniture and carpets, door which didn't close properly and beds that were very saggy and in poor condition. The place served its purpose but I would consider it a place last choice

GREAT budget hotel experience

I really wasn't expecting much, but the price was right and it was conveniently located, though not scenic. This hotel far exceeded my expectations for the kind of hotel it is. It was very clean and comfortable, had everything I needed, and the front desk workers, both morning and night were wonderful. They had the kind of attitude and customer service that I would expect at a much higher end hotel. The continental breakfast was standard budget hotel but fine, with a lot of variety, and they had coffee, tea, and a wide variety of magazines available in the lobby 24-7. I would recommend this to my friends when staying in the area.

If the continental breakfast isn't your thing, try Ithaca Bakery across the way at the Triphammer Center. Great stuff. It would be a less than 10 minute walk, but the roads aren't walk-friendly right here.

One night stay

Wonderfully clean

When booking a cheap hotel, you expect an old, dirty fleabag, but don't expect that with this hotel! I was pleasantly surprised to find that the rooms were as clean as any expensive hotel I've stayed in and nothing seemed to be outdated or in need of replacement. It was a great experience. It's great that there are places to go where the low cost isn't due to low quality and uncleanliness--there just weren't any extra frills or amenities (except both a microwave and mini-fridge in my room).
