The Craftman Inn lives up to its name: Attractive craftsman-style furnishings in the public areas as well as is the rooms. It is across the street from a large shopping center with a Panera, UNO, Bonefish Grill, Target, and Tops. There's (thankfully) a Starbucks next store, although they serve coffee in the lobby 24/7. We were there to attend a...

You can't help but appreciate the charm of this Inn. The positives are the complimentary coffee/tea in lobby. The access to wifi was excellent, strong signal, ease of access. The negatives were linens and towels that were stained and dingy. In our room there were night stands on either side of the bed, both held lamps. Unfortunately one of the...

My girlfriend and I stayed two nights in this hotel for a wedding during memorial day weekend. The area this Inn is located is a nice busy area. It is close to Syracuse but far enough away where you are not in a city type of area. It is on a busy road, but this means it is close to...

Stayed overnight during the weekend of Syracuse University's graduation. I was not expecting any grand hotel or inn, they charged close to $300 for a $120 room!! Way overpriced for these accomodations. Lobby was dirty, hallways smelled musty and were very dark. Would suggest a local bed and breakfast to travelers.

While visiting my mother who lives a block away, things were busy so we spent a couple nights at the Craftsman. Never intended to be a luxury resort, the Craftsman has decent rooms, furnished with Stickley and good coffee. Never compare the Limestone Grill restaurant next door with the Craftsman, different entity (see my review of that). The beds were...

Rooms are small, but serviceable. Quiet. Stickley furniture in lobby is nice to see. Had breakfast at the hotel restaurant and found it to be the slowest restaurant service I have ever seen. Being across the street from the town shopping center was convenient, and found a restaurant there, Carrabas, which was very good.

We visited in mid January on a winter getaway holiday to the Syracuse area. We wanted to visit the Stickley museum, factory and showroom so it was very convenient. Also the inn has Stickley furnishings. Aside from the furnishings the inn it is quite plain with tight rooms. The rocking chair barely had room to rock.The staff were very friendly...

We normally stay at Hotel Skylar when we visit our daughter at Syracuse University, Unfortunately, for us, they were totally booked...found this "inn" that was not too far from the University...however it was old...dirty...not updated at all and the staff was just mediocre.

When compared to the brand new , state of the art Hotel Skylar, our older country setting inn could have seemed not very up to date. It is a very different type of lodging. We do have renovations underway that would address some of your concerns about the facility seeming worn. New carpeting, painting, softwares and appointments are underway to...

Had a very nice stay at the Craftsman. It has the charm of an upstate NY lodge with modern, comfortable amenities and is very clean. The service was excellent and although we didn't get to try the restaurant in the hotel it looked very nice and prices were pretty low. If you're in the area or even if you're going...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The American Arts and Crafts Movement blossomed at the turn of the 20th century on the tree lined streets of peaceful villages in upstate New York. The movement was a personal and architectural revolt against the ornateness of the Victorian style. This Movement sparked a period of design characterized by simplicity, honestly and integrity. Here in Fayetteville, Leopold and John George Stickley created Arts and Crafts furniture using innovative construction techniques which have endured as hallmarks of the Movement. The Craftsman Inn is dedicated to these Craftsman ideals. Look around, the designs that inspire the building, the chairs and tables, the lighting and pictures, all evoke that ideal. Our Limestone Grille was launched in 2008 as the heir to our more stately Craftsman House. The Limestone reflects the 21st century evolution of these concepts as once again a desire for a simpler, truer,more authentic approach becomes prevalent. Our dining room and lounge reflect clean, Mission style design but with warm colors, classic furnishings, and contemporary appointments. Our service staff and bartenders provide friendly yet attentive service, knowledgeable without being presumptuous, helping to create the sense of relaxed comfort we all seem to miss so much of the time. That end result is what inspires us to do the best we can. ... more   less
