Great service, employees and breakfast. Just needs bigger towels and maybe a comfy chair in room, not just a desk chair. Thanks for helping to make our weekend pleasant.

This hotel was an affordable option while visiting someone at the hospital. The room was clean and the breakfast served from 5 to 10, making it easy to access on a busy day. The hotel needs some updating, but the price made it a good option for a quick stay.

I'm really impressed with this hotel. Easy to get to and close to Corning, NY. The room was amazing. Enough parking and easy access to the parking lot. Free wifi! USB connection available for charging electronics. And a freaking breakfast buffet as early as 4am-ish! The menu changes daily....fresh waffles, cereal, bagels, eggs, sausage/bacon.....omg.... I never do positive reviews but this place was beyond its external look. My friend and I were very impressed and plan on using it again in the near future.

Was a pleasant experience at a phenomenal rate! Great central location near all shopping plazas. It looks a bit run down on the outside and in the main lobby, but the rooms are updated with new flat screens, bed stands, dresser, etc. Have stayed here on a couple of different occasions as a cheap getaway. Is pretty busy and was pretty full during our stay but was always quiet which was nice. Great breakfast varieties but would recommend upkeep on the vending machines as everytime we selected a drink they were sold out. Would recommend a small in house store to pick up drinks or snacks when you don't want to go all the way out to a store.

It's an econo-lodge in a small town in upstate NY so if you are expecting lush amenities and new interior that is not what you are going to get. That being said, it is in a very convenient location to the airport, highway, and nearby shopping such as grocery stores, Barnes and Noble, and Outback Steakhouse. If you are just passing through, but also needing to pick someone up at the airport who will be traveling with you this is a great choice. The hotel appeared a bit run down but the price was reasonable, the room was clean, the hotel was quiet, and the receptionist who was there that evening was exceedingly pleasant, friendly, and accommodating.

Just needed a convenient hotel for an overnight. Hiked in Watkins Glen, and this hotel was about 20 minutes away, and within my budget. I was hoping for the best, but my expectations were low. I was surprisingly pleased. The hotel was conveniently located near restaurants and very near the mall. I relaxed with a movie at the cinema and dinner before checking in. The room (king size bed) was clean. My room had a fridge, microwave, coffee maker, iron, hair dryer. Everything I needed. I wod like to do move hiking in that are, and I will definitely stay here.

I enjoyed my stay at the hotel. Warm, inviting, and relaxing. I would recommend.

The hotel is clean staff is helpful. Coffee is always available in the lobby.

When we tried to check in there was no one at the front desk. The person did leave a note stating that she was out back doing laundry and that we should ring the bell. We were in the lobby for about ten minutes trying to get her attention by ringing the bell but that did not work. We decided to go do a little shopping and when we returned there was someone at the front desk. While this situation was not the end of the world, I don't feel the front desk should be left unattended.

Consistently good value for business trips and clean.

Our room smelled of smoke even though it was a designated smoke-free room. We did not have a garbage can in the room but took one we found outside on a picnic table (weird). The breakfast times were great as it was available for many hours. More gluten-free options would be preferable.

I have stayed at this location prior to the past stay; the chamber maids, front desk attendants were very helpful. I had a bit of a drain problem in the tub/shower which they supplied me with nessessary tools to fix. Regardless of the time of year staying at this location, it is overpriced!

First off we stayed in Elmira for a wrestling event so we just needed a place to sleep. The staff was nice the sheets and bathroom were dirty. But we made the most of the night. We were to tired to complain about the sheets or the shower so it could have been dealt with. Other than that the room was nice big tv and free Internet were the saving graces.

room was comfortable and room was clean staff friendly breakfast was very good. Table in room was broken.

When we went to check in the person at the front desk tried to lie and say that check-in wasn't for another hour. Then admitted that they were understaffed. He did give us a discount to try and make up for it. When we finally got to our room it wasn't clean. The floor didn't look like it had been cleaned or the tub. I had to put a towel in the tub to step on. We also had to buy a bottle of febreeze because the room smelled like smoke so bad. The only good thing is that they let us check out a little late.

Booked multiple rooms -one room toilet was overflowing onto floor and no one there to fix it so they changed our rooms. -Staff mixed up what rooms they moved us to -General manager wrote us a letter stating "your irresponsibility did cause a lot of hassle for us" -Manager moved our granmothers belongings to another room stated he moved everything to a new room and after demanding we be let back in the old room we found more of her belongings. If you are looking for bad service, broken facilities and the worst customer service known this could be the place for you.

Very clean and obviously has been rebuilt not too long ago. Friendly manager, very accomodating. good location to local airport and shopping mall.

It was not meant to be a fun trip, it was a funeral trip so it was a fast one. The bed's bottom sheet was a flat sheet and not fitted so it kept sliding off the bed where at night we would end up on the bare mattress.

The room was semi-comfortable, but the area and the nearby rooms were noisy. To top it off, there was NO hot water. It was barely above room temperature. When i talked to the clerk, I got some lame excuse about the health dept making them change the temp lower. No offer of a refund or discount. the clerk's attitude was not even close to being sincere. I will not be staying at that location again

was there just to sleep
