Clean and affordable and near Cornell. Family owned. Need to update bed spreads and mattresses. A few updates would improve. Nice people own it.

Basic amenities, fridge in room, TV and hairdryer. Coffee available at the office. Simple but clean, a bit worn around the edges but nothing objectionable. A good clean bed to sleep in.

It's not fancy, but it's clean and comfortable. Don't expect a large flat screen TV or fancy fixtures, but if basics are enough, then this place is perfect.

I switched my 4-night reservations to this hotel last minute and saved over $800 compared to staying in downtown Ithaca. This is a basic motel. My room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. AC worked well. Hotel staff were friendly. Breakfast was basic, but did the job! The TV, however, was very old. Hopefully they'll upgrade their TVs to flat screens at some point

Best for what it is

Location: Close to Cornell University
This is an economy motel. I've stayed in many and this is one of the best. The heat and hot water were great. The room was clean and the bathroom looked recently renovated. The continental breakfast is what you'd expect - danish, muffins, and bananas. The price in the off-season is very reasonable. It is within 5 minutes of Cornell's campus.

Affordable and close to Cornell.

A place to crash and shower. Not much more. Hot water wasn't.

Clean but needs updating.

Was an old motel. Arrived at 10pm greeted by motel owner. Room was clean but dated. Needs to update bathroom. Gave you Danish and hot coffee in the morning. Good place to sleep for one night for the price. Close to Cornell and shops. Would recommend but if your looking for modern facilties this isn't the place for you.

Close to North Campus, but...

Pros: Location.
Cons: Some soundproofing between floors?
Location: Rather close to Cornell and it's environs.
In the hopes of scoring a room off campus for Cornell's reunion, we found this location, about 3 miles from North Campus on Rt. 366. While the location is great, the rooms aren't the most comfortable. Namely, the beds are short. My spouse slept nearly sideways on his, while I tapped out the length of mine at 5'7". Also, being a two floor location, we were at the mercy of the people upstairs. I swear there were elephants up there. Anytime someone got out of bed we heard it. 12am, 2am, no difference, they walked around a lot. Luckily, we weren't there much. It served its purpose, but that's about it.
