“Comfortable and had an ample breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

We stayed on the 3rd floor. It was very quiet. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. Met the standards of Fairfield Inns. The breakfast was ample: hard boiled and scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles, toast and English muffins, bagels, Danish, cereal, yogurt, fresh apples and bananas, fresh fruit salad, OJ, cran juice, coffee, tea.
The exercise room was small but sufficient. I didn't use the pool but it was small.

Stayed overnight with my daughter to attend a friend's party. Our room was clean and pleasant, beds very comfortable, temperature in the room easy to regulate. Didn't have time (or suits) to use the pool, but it looked well-kept up and inviting. Complimentary breakfast was better than expected, lots of options, food was fresh and plentiful. The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating. Several friends were also staying in the hotel and we were able to hang out together in the breakfast room at night after the party. Very pleased with my experience here; while it was nothing spectacular, it was a nice basic comfortable place to spend the night; the only thing missing was an on-site pub or restaurant. I would definitely stay here again if in the area.

Room Tip: It's actually set up so that the usual noise generators (elevators and ice machines) aren't...

Pleasant staff (Glen at check-in was particularly cheerful) at a generally clean, reasonably up-to-date property. It meets all the standards for a decent overnight: Moderately comfortable furniture and bedding, inoffensive decor in decent shape, no surprise noise problems or other shortcomings. Clean grounds, good housekeeping, a clean little indoor pool, a tiny but workable fitness room, free wi-fi and parking ... all of that makes it a good deal.
But beyond that, not much. Think of it as a white bread roll for a burger - it definitely gets the job done with no fuss or muss, but also no flair. Breakfast is a nice convenience offered to guests, but even a Fairfield Inn cheerleader would have a tough time describing it as more than average. Nothing bad, to be sure - but nothing stood out at all, and there's not much imagination in the selection or display.
This is the tough part of this niche of the hotel market: The goal is to be more attractive and reliable than Ramada or the budget chains, but not to get fancy enough to enter the Hyatt Place range. The result is understandably middle-of-the-road.
I wouldn't hesitate to return if I needed to be in the area. But I wouldn't dream of this as a destination hotel, either, and wouldn't have any reservation about staying with a similarly priced competitor instead.

The only reason this hotel got a 3 instead of a 2 is because the bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was decent. But the hallways looked like they hadn't been vacuumed in weeks... The rooms were pretty bare bones. Needs a bit of work. But fine for the night.

Rooms are dated with no amenities (fridge or microwave). Broken/loose tiles on bathroom floor. Ice machine was broken. Poor service at breakfast although breakfast person was very friendly when she was present. Employees griping to one another about being over worked and not able to meet the requirements of some sort of paperwork. No automatic doors makes entering with a fame ill and a cart of paraphernalia difficult. No restaurants really close.

Clean room, friendly staff and good location. Gym was small, but works. Complimentary breakfast had many choices, including some options for my vegan life style. Would recommend for anyone who needs to be across from SUNY or not far from down town.
