Recent guest reviews

Very nice , clean room , comfortable matresess . Good working refrigerator and microwave .

the best was the staff and management there was a problem with the Orbitz and they worked to resolve this with knowledge, respect and integrity have stayed here before and it is very adequate good service, clean and quiet edge of town out of the fray and still easy and close to get to things in town.

Clean, comfortable, reasonably priced. Good location.

Quiet, cost effective. 9 below zero and heat was great.

The room smelled like it hadn't been aired in a long, long time. Splashes of dirt were on the bathroom walls, and charger plugs kept falling out of the wall sockets near the bed. Only stayed one night, and I wouldn't stay here again.

It is a remodeled 1940's motel. The room was musty with a crop of fruit flies. Newish furniture and comfortable bed but noisy AC wall unit. Microwave and frig would be handy for a longer stay but wouldn't want to stay any longer. Ok breakfast included .

In the evening, an insect climb onto my body. I feel bad. The complimentary breakfast was poor.

Musty smell in room. It's old and needs an upgrade. The complimentary breakfast was far below expectations, particularly for the cost of the room.

We must have hit Ithaca on a college visit weekend because many of the hotel/motels were booked. This was the best place/deal to be found. It was reasonable. Better than expected, actually. Clean bed and bathroom and we didn't fee gross after hanging out in the room a couple of hours. If it's between this place and nothing I would recommend it.

Rooms are filthy. First room was very musty and damp; also had a chirping smoke detector with a dead battery and a leaking faucet in the bathroom that could be heard very clearly in the room. The manager was friendly and immediately switched our room to a "suite" which was just as musty and dirty. Several electrical outlets didn't work. A terrible value for over $100 per night. This is at best a $50 per night truck stop motel.

Great location. Nothing special about the hotel, but no real negatives either. Many facilities at proximity.

Other hotels should learn from this place. Wifi is free and flawless and no password needed. No hassle check in and check out. Simple, but clean, room. Coffee maker, cable tv, plenty of towels, good refrigerator. Staff was tops.

We had a very good experience at this hotel. The owners are very friendly. We didn't have any problems while we were there. The room was very clean and came with a microwave, coffee maker, fridge, and freezer. There weren't any other amenities like a pool or gym, but that wasn't really important. We were just looking for a place to stay near Ithaca, and this was in a prime spot. It's very close to the Commons, about a 5 minute drive. The continental breakfast doesn't have very much of a selection, but it's good enough, about what I would expect from a hotel in this price range. This hotel was very much worth the money, I don't think it was over priced at all as some of the other reviews say

The staff was great. The room was average. It was at least worth what I paid. The bathroom needs work.

Considering the price I was pleased that the room was clean, the bedding in good shape, the shower towels large and fluffy. The TV worked well. The complimentary breakfast was pretty slim, with just plain white bagels, tiny muffins, and frozen pancakes for warm up in the microwave. Coffee from a thermos, milk in a gallon jug in the frig, and apple and orange juice from a dispensing machine. The desk clerk was helpful to a patron who asked to borrow some tools.

Room overall was not well cleaned, and there was peeling paint and stains on the bathroom walls. Mold and grunge in the shower, particularly where you are forced to stand, and in the corners of the bathroom tile floor. Tiled shower pan appears home made and slopes so steeply to the drain standing could be very diffult for someone (e.g., elderly) with balance issues. Also, some potentially serious health issues with the breakfast bar. For example the eggs were a frozen type designed for a microwave application, but were left sitting out in a plastic container without benefit of cooling. Who knows how many bacteria grow during the 3-hour breakfast period.

Clean and quiet. Short drive to Cornell. Spent time looking at a lone goose on the lawn. Maybe someone could find him/her a mate?

helpful staff short drive downtown.. great value

We needed an affordable place to stay while we hiked the glens of Ithaca. This motel is located on the same road as Buttermilk Falls and Treman State Park-each is only a few minutes' drive away. The room was spotless, and the inclusion of a refrigerator/freezer and a microwave made it even more feasible to stay within our budget. Only downside was that the place is brand new, and the driveway and parking spaces are not completely paved, but this will be rectified soon.

The family that runs the hotel is very nice and accommodating. You have to drive (maybe one mile) to get any food or anything, but other than that it's fine.
