Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Cortland

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The staff and facilities were well above expected in a chain hotel. Felt more like a B&B, warm cookies, evening soup or other hot goodies. (really welcome with the unbelievable cold weather) Breakfast food and service staff was excellent.

We booked here because of the reviews and recommendations. This hotel was clean and we thought that it must have just been built. We were shocked to find that it was 11 years old. Friendly and helpful staff, large clean rooms. What more could you ask for?

The hotel was wonderful. The staff was very friendly. There was not much to do around to hotel in terms of shopping and eating.

Nice hotel. Friendly staff. They even rolled in an extra bed for an unexpected guest we had.

We stayed here during the labor day weekend. Had a really great time! Staff is one of the best I've seen. I'd recommend this place to others.

Friendly, clean. We stayed only one night but the staff greater us like old friends, helpful in directions and ideas for the area. The room was large king,mini-ridge, microwave and sink above all. Awesome and large selection of fresh breakfast items. Free ! First time staying with this hotel (chain) but not our last from enjoying this trip. Only down size was shampoo and stuff now comes in ultra mini size. We we're traveling from multi location and left our shampoo in last hotel. I'd always rather ask when need something than waste products not used. Which means in this case the ultra mini was useless for my long hair. Oh well still loved our stay.

Clean room, helpful staff greeted us with cookies and hot tea. Very good breakfast

We were greeted with soft cookies and hot tea. The room and bathroom were clean, large, and comfortable. Complimentary breakfast was really good and the service at the breakfast was outstanding.

We stayed here for family weekend at Cortland. What a wonderful experience. From checking in, even though there was so many people checking in the young man behind the desk was so very gracious and kind, to when we checked out. the room was great. we had everything we needed and more. The breakfast was delicious. and I don't want to forget to add my husband's favorite, the yummy cookies at the desk. We will stay here again for sure.

AWESOME. from the cleanliness, the service by the staff, the ammenities , the location and accessibility to locations of my son's wedding. I was traveling with family members, including my 3 year old granddaughter. The board games and cookies in the lobby were her favorite, along with the pool & hot tub. We enjoyed the breakfast very much both mornings. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who might travel to this area. The staff was very helpful, considerate & friendly. Overall experience was enjoyable.

I didn't expect to love a budget hotel so much. It is half hr from cornell/ a bit far but worth it. Staff was excellent/very friendly and helpful. Free wifi, free cookies, snacks and then desserts later.....free dvds and books and games to borrow! Breakfast was substantial too, eggs, bacon, potatoes and usual fare, waffle maker, yogurt, fruit etc. For $100 night/ couldn't want any more! Pool and hot tub small but good enough for fun. I had the BEST sleep in that bed with soft sheets! It was all a nice surprise!

Very comfortable room and very friendly service. The free breakfast was better than most and the homemade chocolate chip cookies and other snacks and the front desk were great!

The bed was very comfortable, the shower/bathroom was good, the TV was a flat-screen which was good. The free breakfast won't be putting Bob Evans out of business anytime soon, but the bagels and english muffins were just fine. The phone kept flashing the message waiting light, even after I called down to the operator, and they said they would turn it off, it came back on the next day regardless.

Warm and friendly hotel, very clean.

The beds were so soft and comfortable. The rooms were big. It was very helpful to have wireless available with such ease.

very comfortable, the bed was extremely comfortable. Hotel was quiet, even though it was full.

We had never stayed at a Country Inn & Suites before and we were pleasantly surprised. We arrived late and there was a hitch with programming our roomkey, but after that was solved, our stay went smoothly. Breakfast was good, coffee was available 24/7, and there were always cookies in the lobby. The room itself (a king bed, 1 bedroom suite)was very spacious and comfortable. Everything seemed clean, and there was a fridge and microwave available in the living area. The fitness area is small but has 5 cardio machines and a TV. The pool is small and we didn't get a chance to use it or the hottub, but it looked nice enough. The hotel is a 25-30 min drive to Cornell's campus, but there was no traffic and it was fairly convenient. I would definitely recommend this hotel for travel to this area, especially if there are no reasonably priced rooms available in Ithaca.

fantastic hotel, we wll be back. We decided to stay in Cortland 20 minutes by car from Cornell University. Great location, and fantastic service.

While traveling alone I felt very safe and comfortable. I had a beautiful,spacious,Queensize suite. I would defintely,stay here again and recommend this hotel completely.

The staff was friendly and courteous but slow getting to the front desk. The room was clean and well maintained. I arrived on a very could night and the room did not warm up until 5 a.m. The location could not have been better it was across the street from the university.
