Days Inn Cortland / McGraw

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room was ample (nothing cramped), the mattress fine. The icluded breakfast was standard fare, nothing to knock your socks off, but the coffee for my taste was aweful. Somebody was trying to get fancy with a non-standard brew.

Location convenient - on the way. Lots of fast food places nearby. Room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was minimal. Staff very responsive to our needs.

Since Days Inn is a national chain I expected a decent mid range hotel. This is what you get here. A great price and a decent hotel. Not overly fancy but nice and clean good rooms.

Needed a place to crash and perfect for the price. Good breakfast too.

They helped me with the rehearsal dinner location. We had it right at the hotel. They were very kid friendly.

My wife and I and our 3 boys were visiting Ithaca college the next day so we needed a place to stay overnight so we could get to the school in the morning. Ok hotel for an overnight or two. Upon arrival toilet was very slow, and sure as sh**, ha ha I made a funny, it got clogged as soon as my son used it. So it was off to the front desk for a plunger, which they gave me and I corrected the problem. Beds were comfortable but we needed a roll-away cot/bed as there was 5 of us. I felt bad for our youngest son who had to use it as it was sooooooo soft, it was as if he was folded in half, ok not that bad but it was pretty awful.

Very nice stay for the price. Clean atmosphere and friendly staff. We have stayed here several times in visiting family. Quiet and comfortable. A lot less expensive than the hotel's just up the road and yet a good rest.

Not a whole lot nearby, but it is convenient and right next to the highway. Staff was very friendly. Excellent Wi-Fi. So-so breakfast. All in all, as good a place as any.

We arrived late in the evening after being stuck in the snow. The girl at the front desk was not friendly when I first said hello. Nor was she present at the front desk until I called out. After checking us in and giving me our key I asked where the room is so I could park closest to the entrance exit door we would be using. She pointed at a map and told me it is here. The map was somewhat confusing but I headed in the general direction w baby and bag in hand hoping I would see a sign or see some room numbers that would help. There were no signs for our room number so I went back to the front and once again called for her to come to the desk. She didn't know where it was and said it might be outside. Outside? Like where outside? Well the map says outside. It was one of the coldest nights of the year in a snow storm and she wants suggesting I take my baby outside bc my room is outside? I asked her to show me. She took me into the gym and opened up a closet like that might be the room!? My husband then comes in and I tell him we can't find the room. She then hands him the map and says he can find it. Furious he looks and goes outside where he found the room. Apparently there are two rooms that are outside and the rest easy to find inside. She had no clue however where these mystery rooms were. In the morning after getting breakfast our room key wouldn't work bc the electric key card reader was frozen. Our dog was in the room while we loaded the car and now we couldn't get in. Also our mystery outdoor rooms backed onto the gym so we could hear someone running on the treadmill first thing in the morning. Totally not worth it!

Our stay here was fine. Room smelled a little musty, but was clean and we had no complaints.

It's a clean safe place to sleep...very convenient to Rte 81. Other than that. ...rooms are dated, but not worn. Tues TVs and drab 70 ' s bedding. Free breakfast consists of microwave omelets, cereal, and make your own waffles. It was OK for my purpose. ....I needed a reasonable place to sleep. I wouldn't vacation here....but I would sleep there again

We have stayed here once before, and it was fine then. We stayed this past weekend, and it was great. No problems at all. They remodeled the breakfast area and it was much larger, bright and very clean. The staff was very friendly. The one man even said he remembered us from our last stay here in September. Had a nice roomy fridge in the room and a small coffee maker. I would stay here again.

I was concerned about staying here since I booked the room almost a year prior to the stay, I was reading recent reviews just before our weekend there. When we arrived we were greeted by a very pleasant desk person. and were treated very kindly the two nights that we stayed. When we opened the door to the room, I was very pleased. It was perfectly fine. I would stay there again. Breakfast was not fancy, but certainly adequate.

Friendly check in, first floor room in rear of hotel was cool and ready, although the furnishings are on the far side of "new". Pleasant stay, ample continental breakfast. Would book again.

The carpets were really worn, faded and full of stains (pretty gross looking). My AC unit didn't work well and my shower drain was clogged.

Beds were surprisingly comfortable! Front desk staff was nice and helpful. Had to leave before breakfast so can't comment on that. Small bathroom, but overall a good experience. Very convenient off of Exit 10 from Rt. 81.

Room was clean, quiet and fine for the night. Continental breakfast was very scarce. Almost finished by 9am, not to be replenished.

we went deer hunting. the room was a clean room and was right off the interstate.

My visit was brief. All I was looking for was a clean, comfortable room and that is what I got.

We stayed here for parents weekend at cortland
