Late with booking a hotel at Cornell

What would be the second-best option to find a hotel (relatively) near Cornell given all the hotels in Ithaca (based on TripAdvisor definition--- 17 of them) are booked...? Many thanks!

Don't give up! Go to www.visitithaca.com and click on Lodging.

Be sure to fill in the date you arrive and the number of nights you're staying. Then hit "search". The second website is www.bbithaca.com Click on Availbility

You might want to check daily since these are updated all the time.

Help! We're late booking in the Ithaca area as well. Coming in this Thursday August 20th to visit Cornell and then want to go to Watkins Glen. Any suggestions for either area of a decent hotel (all Ithaca ones seem booked and really expensive and Watkins Glen ones look really seedy....

I've booked one in Horseheads (strange name...) but it's really 45 minutes in the wrong direction....

Any other ideas of something closer?? We prefer newish hotels with a pool....

appreciate any thoughts!!

This weekend (Thurs Aug 20-Sat Aug 22) is Freshman Move In Weekend at Cornell, meaning that not only will all the hotels be full with families dropping off their students, but that in general it is not the best weekend for a casual weekend to Ithaca.

Think- snarled traffic, jammed stores, hotels, restaurants, and lots of hot, tired, and lost families. Please visit on another weekend if possible- you will have a much better trip!!
