The property was pretty worn down, the comforter had spots on it, the hall light did not work and the shower ceiling had signs of mold. The continental breakfast was pretty weak, understand covid19 thing, but could have offered other bev choices and single serve yogurt. The staff was great, friendly and held our room for a late check in.

Hotel not worth the price

Hard to find- we didn't realize it was in a shopping plaza. The pillows were so uncomfortable- very hard! The bath towels were very small- the size was more for children. The hotel was not worth the price of $139- very expensive for the type of hotel it is. The breakfast was okay; nothing special- mostly processed food. A few fresh fruits : apples and oranges, and yogurt. Scrambled eggs were really watery- my husband and I skimmed some off of the top of the pan where they weren't as watery. If I am ever in the area again I plan to choose a different hotel.

Satisfactory

This hotel was completely satisfactory and fairly priced. The staff was pleasant. It is a property which shows its age. The walks are crumbling in places and it really needs a cosmetic touch up. however, the service and level of comfort were quite satisfactory.

Basic accommodations for a short stay

Pros: Free breakfast, Quiet
The room was clean and adequate. We were not spending a great deal of time in Ithaca on this trip and only needed a comfortable place to sleep. When staying longer I would look for more amenities. THe price was right, and the breakfast included in room rate met our needs. The staff were prompt and friendly.

This Hotel Was Old and Dirty

If you want a clean comfortable hotel, don't stay here. Old dirty carpets were smelly. Run down rooms and lobby. Phone did not work in the room. We have stayed in other Econolodges that were nice. This just wasn't one of them. We will NEVER stay at this one again.

Good value for money

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
We had a handicapped-access room--wide doors, grab rails, etc. Reasonable size, clean, well-equipped. Quiet, despite being next to busy Route 13. Free breakfast with juice, cereals, toast, pastries, fruit. The building is hard to see/find from Triphammer Rd or from Rte 13 leaving Ithaca. It's between a mall parking lot and the highway, a couple of hundred yards from Triphammer Rd.
