Nice Hotel

Only stayed here one night but I would definitely come back. Everything was very clean, everything worked and I liked that the rooms were fairly large. It was nice that it had a steakhouse attached to the restaurant. One negative that I would say is that it's further from the city of Syracuse than I thought it was. But if you're going to something at the Fairgrounds this is a must-stay.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Try out Dinosaur BBQ in the city of Syracuse. From the Inn At The Fairgrounds, it's probably not even a 10 minute drive. Excellent food and service.

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!

Over priced

The TV and one of the floor lamps did not work. Lighting of the room was dark. Staff did not tell you that a computer was available for guest. Staff started breaking down the Breakfast room by 9:40. Breakfast was ffrom 7:am to 10:am.

Great basic hotel, excellent restaurant

Pros: Good price, new comfortable beds, clean lobby, clean room, clean bathroom, cozy steak house on premises (excellent steak & wine selection), free WiFi, plentiful parking, friendly staff. Cons: Bathtub floor not that clean, included breakfast was so-so in selection and quality, in-room TV was old tube style, location is somewhat far from points of interest (nothing within walking distance), hotel staff not the most knowledgeable about the area although they're very friendly. 4 out of 5 stars for a very nice basic hotel.

whers's the wireless?

The hotel had very friendly staff and an exellent restaurant attached. I would not stay there again for a business trip as they did not have a wireless internet connection in my room and this is the most critical critical to me, and to many business travelors.
