Not adequate

I requested a non-smoking room and didn't get it. Yuck! My room was right over the restaurant where a band was playing until late. Double yuck. The location was good - close to but not right on the I690 freeway. I was glad I only had a one night stay.

Very convenient and comfortable

This was a nice hotel for the price. However, the room smelled like smoke (badly) even tough I requested non-smoking. Otherwise it was comfortable and clean.

great value

Took a chance based on reviews from multiple websites and was very happy with the overall product. Stayed at Maplewood last time and for $20 cheaper I thought it was a much better value. Nice clean rooms. Super clean bathrooms with ceramic tile floors. They have an exercise room that could use some improvement. The breakfast is much better than Maplewood but could use some fresh fruit selections.

Inn at the Fair grounds

I've have stayed here on many occasions as I do business in Syracuse, N.Y. It is very clean and the rooms are comfortable with TV and Wi-Fi access. The best part of the hotel is the attached restaurant called "Daniella's" which has excellent food especially their steaks. It is also in close proximity to downtown Syracuse. If you stay there be sure to also check out Dinosaur Bar - B - Q in downtown Syracuse!

Short Stay

Due to a flight cancelation we did not get to hotel until 3 AM. The girl at the desk was very nice and understanding. Left the next day by check out time. So our stay was very short.
