Recent guest reviews

The room was clean and I found the bed to be comfortable. The interior of the room could use some attention as the wallpaper is beginning to peel but this was just asthetics. I can't complain when comparing to the price of the room. Continental breakfast wasn't much but did the trick. The room served the purpose of a place to sleep and stay warm while having easy acess to the restraunts and bars in the town.

This has got to be the worst place I have ever stayed. First of all its a Motel and not a Hotel. For a trucker or a quick couple of hours visit but not for a family coming from a long distance to stay. I was suppose to have stayed two nights and I could only stay in that place a couple of hours. Wouldn't have stayed that long but didn't arrive there until around 2am and was really scared to go out looking around until day light. I was out of that place as soon as day break. I ended up paying $285.00 a night for the only hotel left because of Back to College weekend. I have not gotten my money back from this DUMP.

This was a terrible experience and I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

When I got here was told my room was smoking, though I was never given a choice of rooms. Not the biggest deal. Room had a fridge and microwave, nice but didn't need or want either. Bathroom was annoyingly small, kept hitting into the drop ceiling when I was trying to get dressed. Shower leaked into the bathroom pretty badly and shower was in need of some minor repairs, and desperate need of a new shower head. For 89 a night, not impressed. Motel 6s that I've stayed in were much nicer at half the cost.

Nothing special about the place. The continental breakfast was pretty lame, but the location was only a block over from all the bars and restaurants.

The rug on the floor felt greasy, the pillow stuck to the head board and we woke up to a couple hundred small black ants crawling on the end table next to the bed. Next time we're staying at another hotel. I would not suggest this place to anyone.

Worth the price if not worried about xtras good if only staying one night

We only stayed one night and the staff was very nice . But the free wifi was very disapointing. If you want to get connected to wifi you would have to sit in your car in the parking lot, because you could'nt access the internet from from the room we were in. In the morning i attempted to toast a bagle at the continental breakfast but i think i could heat the bagle faster in the sunshine, and then the toaster would'nt pop the bagle out either. Still, with all things considered, the price, compared to other places in the area it was worth it. I would stay here again if I was just staying a night or two.

We were not sure when we pulled up if we were going to like the room, but were pleasantly surprised when we walked in the room. It was clean, spacious and even had a fridge and a microwave!! The people in the office were very kind. No problems at all at check in or check out. We would stay here again for sure.

I was angry with the travel agency to start off because we chose a non-smoking room and they placed us in a smoking room and the staff could not help us out in any way. We could barely stay in the hotel because of the smell of smoke, one of the bed sheets contained hairs and the other bed sheets had holes in them. We definetly over paid for the quality of that hotel! If it's your only option then spend as little time as possible.

Ok as a a last minute place needed to stay. Too noisy, neat, not smoking room but still smelled like cigarrette. Child with asthma, not good at al.

They were great, had toothpaste which we forgot and the breakfast was good. Thanks again

Really liked the king bed - nice and firm and seemed new. Room was always clean and the parking lot newly paved. Two (2) negatives for us - the worst was the Coke machine just outside our doors. It chugged loudly when the compressor ran and had to bother at least four (4) rooms - ours being the closest. Owner's wife said she'd call the vending company right away. We could have given the room one more star with a can of Febreze. Was that older musty smell so easy to remedy. Owner/Manager very nice and helpful.

THE ROOM WAS CLEAN AND VERY NICE THE BATHROOM WAS WELL STOCKED AND CLEAN EVEN IN THE CORNERS OF THE TUB AND THE CORNERS OF THE ROOM. THE STAFF WAS VERY HELPFUL AND NICE. THE MAN IN THE MORNING ASKED WHERE I WAS GOING AND I SAID ITHACA GRADUATION AND HE HAD MAPS AND DIRECTIONS ON THE COUNTER, TO GET TO THE SCHOOL BUT I DID NOT NEED THEM SINCE I HAD BEEN THERE BEFORE. BUT HE WAS VERY PROACTIVE AND HAD IT READY IF I NEEDED IT. I WAS EXTREMELY PLEASED WITH MY STAY AND I WILL USE ECON LOGE AGAIN AND IF I AM IN THE ITHACA I WILL USE THAT ONE AGAIN AND I WILL RECOMEND IT TO MY FRIENDS AND RELATIVES

the staff was very nice and Helpful they had a nice free Breakfast

1)sheets not changed 2)bed thrown together 3)HBO not working and was included in room price 4)hair dryer and iron broken 5)breakfast very sad, toaster handles broken, styrofoam plates melted from heat of bagel, apples wrinkled, juice and milk warm. 6)close to downtown and much better food choices

Room was moderately clean. Carpet looked very worn out. Overall appearance was sort of run down. I did not have a bad experience but I would probably choose a different hotel next time.

I was there for a single night. Bed was reasonably clean but carpet was worn. Entire hotel had a run down look. Ok for a short stay but next time I would probably stay somewhere else.

smell very bad, deepressing, it was not wroth $85 a night!!! the ony good about the hotel was the coffee thats it the baked good were moildy!!!

We were greeted prompty and in a friendly manner when we checked in. Upon pulling the comforter down on our bed, we were surprised to find a very dirty stain on the sheet. I took the sheet to the office and my wife and I remade the bed. No apologies were offered. The next morning we found the breakfast area to be very dirty. Honestly, we were disappointed with the conditions for the price we paid.
