Staff was polite upon check in. The hotel was dated and not fantastice but it did the job. My big complaint was when we brought our bags to the lobby after checking in, the whole main area smelled strongly of pot. Ok, someone enjoying themselves, whatever. An hour later, on the second floor the whole are smelled of pot and it creeped into our room. We had our 3 kids with us. I went downstairs to let them know someone was stinking up the area and ask for an air freshener. The lady offered to move us up another floor but it was already evening and packing all the kids up and going to another room seemed daunting so i took the air freshener and sprayed the heck out of the second floor and then stuffed a towel under the door so the stink wouldn't come back in our room. Do what you want on your own time, but do it outside. Did not enjoy Ithaca overall, won't be staying again.

Updated, clean, and contemporary hotel. My fiancé and I checked in super late (he got stuck at work) and there was someone there to check us in at 3AM. Staff was friendly and accommodating. We thought our room was very clean and really liked the finishes and furniture in the room. Overall, it was a really nice place to stay and highly recommend it.

We have stayed at this hotel numerous times and it is close to where we need to be (Ithaca College) as well as close to downtown. We have booked through Travelocity but were told that we cannot receive Holiday Inn rewards points if we do (unfortunate reason for Travelocity since the rewards points should help reduce the cost - at some point). The rooms are clean, the property well maintained and the breakfast is excellent - save for the fried toaster in which someone appeared to have dropped a container of honey into (sweet!). We booked the room WELL in advance of our stay, but when we were given a room, we discovered that it was a handicapped room. Although the room was fine, the shower was made to be accessible and had much less pressure and was not able to be adjusted to a reasonable height. I checked to make sure that we were not taking the room away from anyone who might need the accessibility but it seemed it was the only room left! Certainly not a major problem, but since it was booked far in advance...…. As always, Ithaca hotels seem to do a very good job of raising their prices on weekends when Cornell or Ithaca College events are being held (meaning pretty much every weekend). Given the price of tuition at both schools it would be nice to find hotels that would give a price break to parents of current students (don't think that will happen, but I keep trying!).
