“Bring your sense of humor”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2002

Our first clue about our impending stay was when we asked where the pool was. "Oh, it's out there, we filled it with dirt and put plants in it. but you can sit in the patio chairs by it" the decor is retro 60's, actually it's real 60's. even the dirt is old. Toilet paper is included but you have to buy bars of soap. Apparently not everyone needs it. It took awhile for our rooms to get ready because they had to move the help out of them before they could get them ready. It was thoughtful for them to leave a half sandwich in the minifridge for us. We wanted both HOT and cold running water so only a few rooms would do. We were attending a wedding and got the place off of the internet, beware of internet hotels. We called a cab so we could party down a little. The cab driver said "you must not be from around here, this is the worst hotel in town" The girls with us were mortified but were good sports about the whole thing. All in all it was something we'll always laugh about but if you are going to Elmira for some unknown reason I'd suggest another place, like a homeless shelter, rather than the Mark Twain.
