    Very nice room for the price.

    Needs better lighting in the bathroom for applying makeup!!

  • Family with children

    Location

    Old rooms, dark, decor was very dated.

  • Family with children
    6.4

    Good location near the Ithaca schools.

    Construction made it hard to locate and it felt tucked away in a residential area.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    Room was more spacious than some I've been in and was amazingly quiet compared to other hotels I've stayed in where I can hear neighbors through the walls and in the halls.

    The heater in the room worked, but was a bit tempermental; the fireplace barely let off a "blue-glow"...not really a fire, which would have been a nice option given the option of the heater which we ran on high until the room was stiffling then shut it off. (Also, quite a stiff breeze of cold air coming in "under" the fireplace even when it was running).

    It was easy to find and convenient to Ithaca College. Pool area was nice and well kept. Staff was very nice.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    All of the staff was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was included. The fact that you had a shuttle to take us to Sage Chapel was incredible. It allowed us to relax and enjoy my Godson's wedding.

    Staff, service. They have a shutter facility to take people anywhere

    Transportation. A local public bus stop was located 500 yds from the hotel and arrived/departed every 15 minutes: an all-day pass was available at low cost from various points in Ithaca. One could book the hotel transit to go/return from campus or any local attraction at minimal cost (tip or no tip). Although the Inn seemed at first to be somewhat isolated the ready transportation gave one considerable freedom to shop, attend meetings, eat at good campus and local restaurants and to return to a restful location. The breakfast was good and plentiful, and the breakfast room frequently and attentively refreshed by a dedicated staff member. Everyone was friendly and helpful.

    The key system was a repeating irritation. I think over several days we had to make 8 return trips to the hotel desk to get the two key cards replaced and operable. I felt uncomfortable about the presence of a large dog in the dining room during breakfast. It did not appear to be a service dog, although it was well-behaved: Dogs are not clean animals and I think the owner should have been advised that the dog should not be near food. I wish all hotels would make a serious effort to be environmentally conscious.

    Close to the university and convenient access with buses passing through the location.

    Airconditioner (heat/cool dual function) roars up every now and then in a freezing night, even as you turned it off because of its noise. Some of the rooms do not have comforter/duvet, except a thin layer of bedspread. When asked, hotel staff did not provide something warmer, but another layer of heavy but no-warmth bedspread. She was kind and responsive, but obviously had no power beyond certain limit I suppose. Hotel, as I was told, is undergoing renovation, so hopefully there will be improvements on these basics, so the travelers can at least sleep through the night.

    Everyone was nice and the shuttle service was super! Would for sure stay again!

  • Couple
    6.2

    I liked the big room and the ample choice of tv channels. The room was OK. Nothing special, but a good place to get to other venues. There were also a few stores nearby which was very convenient.

    The lighting was a bit off - that's a thing they could address. Maybe just different lightbulbs, some warmer light. And some more light, too.

  • Family with children
    7.0

    It was fine, nothing special, nothing bad, adequate.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    Nice complimentary breakfast - we enjoyed the outdoor pool.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    They had a service for picking up and dropping off customers which was very good and quick. The driver was always friendly and polite.

    Unfortunately, all the rooms were on the ground floor and the one in which we were staying in had a window which would not close and a noisy fridge.

  • Older travelers

    Pillows

    Air conditioner - old, loud and musty smelling
