I liked the proximity to Elmira College, this cut down our drive time on the day of our event.

Our room was next to the pop machines. I don't know if that was what was making the annoying humming sound in the bathroom but I had to use earplugs to sleep. The sound would start low and then get louder. Very annoying. I have never had to use my earplugs before. Otherwise the room was clean and attractive.

Everything was great my family had a very nice visit.

Extremely quiet hotel as it is located a few miles from the airport. THE MOST comfortable bed and pillows I have evee slept on in a hotel. Custom shuttle service the airport. I stsyed a total of 2 nights on each end of a visit to family in the area before and after my flights into ElMira.

I have stayed here several times. Check in is fast and friendly. Beds are comfortable. Nice indoor pool. Food at the restaurant is good. The price is affordable. If you need a place to stay in Elmira I recommend this hotel.

It was a family emergency that brought us to Elmira. We were very happy to find a clean and quiet place to sleep one night.

Stayed during sons graduation rom Cornell. Great experience

The room was a nice size. We enjoyed the large indoor pool. The staff was cheerful and the restaurant served quality food.

We were there for 3 days for our sons graduation ceremonies. this was our home base from where we visited different places. Though he graduated from Cornell but living and commuting from Elmira was no big deal

It was great! One of the nights, I helped out a lady that had fallen in the bathroom and hurt herself...but the hotel took care of everything, once they finally arrived at the room.

Stayed at this hotel due to convenience of location to family. However, I would have changed hotels if it had been possible. Room rate was escalated to highest price due to national event being held nearby and there was no other availability. Free breakfast was advertised but was not available during my two week stay, but I would have had to drive to the location as I am physically challenged and could not walk to the facility. Room was clean and comfortable. Had a nice big indoor pool.

I was on a business trip with some V.I.P. customers and we all had the same bad experience. The people at the front desk were great, but the room service people were very rude it you could tell they did not want to be working. This was my first trip to Elmira and it left a bad impression about the city. I have stayed at lots of Holiday Inn's, but I think this one is the worst by far. I think the people at Holiday Inn Corporate should spend a night or two here and see what this place is doing to their name.

I traveled with my son for his interview at one of the local hospitals. Conveniently located near to the hospital, friendly nice staff. Upon request they obliged for an hour late check-out. Had breakfast in the restaurant. Good pancakes. Very clean rooms. We will stay at this hotel if we had to return to Elmira.

The room was much larger than expected and very clean. It looked up to date.

For family, queen size beds are much more preferred than the two full size beds, especially when the room is large enough.

Generally speaking, the hotel is a nice one in terms of location, cleanliness, and service.

Booked in March for stay in mid may closest place I could find available for the Ithica Graduation, 40 mins. Room was of decent quality, realativly clean and hotel remained reasonably quiet. My only gripes the room is expensive for what you get I have had far better for much less. And pool and breakfast hours are inconvenient. Breakfast isnt served until 7am im out of the building prior to that. And dont get back until 10 to 11pm at night and going for a refreshing swim isn't an option since it closes at 9.

The staff was very friendly and quickly responded to our needs. We traveled to Elmira to pick up a new Bernese puppy and we were very happy with our hotel stay.

We have stayed at this hotel before and find it has beautiful, updated rooms that are immaculate. The staff is very friendly and professional. We enjoyed our breakfast and the cover band playing in the lounge on Saturday evening, We plan to use this hotel which is located in a quiet area, very close to Elmira College for all future stays in this area!
