Apparently due to the sudden and extreme influx of drilling crews to the Marcellus Shale area, hotel prices in Elmira have skyrocketed in recent years, this hotel included.

That said, this is a former medal winning hotel in the Choice chain (medals are awarded inside of each marque), and not too bad. I've stayed here about 40 times over the past decade and have only had one bad experience (about two years ago, but I give them a pass on it as it was the only room available in a one hour radius).

The rooms are clean enough, though the rooms on the second floor, with interior corridors, are definitely nicer. The hotel is easily accessible from I86/NY17, though the driveway in is in need of some pothole repair.

They generally have popcorn/cookies available in the afternoon evening, and the breakfast looks passable. The hotel is well situated with a small strip mall next door and plenty of places to eat, though they are all chains.

The staff can be hit or miss, never unfriendly, but occasionally inexplicably absent.

Wireless internet is available and decent.

Based on the ranking, I expected a nicer motel. It's old and doesn't look like it has had much in the way of updates. In fact, not much in the way of maintenance. Torn wallpaper, chipped furniture, etc. But it was relatively cheap.

it's a shame because the area is around the hotel is perfect. great rates and location however i cant stay somewhere that is dirty or doesn't have things that work right. i had to stay twice in the last 2 weeks and do not want to stay there again unless i dont have a choice. both times the rooms were not cleaned properly, something broken, bugs in the linen, slow drain and in one case there was mold. if they just maintained the rooms better and cleaned well, this would be the perfect place to stay. it's hard enough staying away from home, my title sums it up.

Room Tip: 2nd floor better

Clean rooms, comfortable beds, tasteful decor. Both times got a room on the 2nd floor which is an interior hallway (first floor rooms open to the outside). Felt like a real hotel - not a cheap motel. 3rd time I tried getting a room and they were sold out.

Downside was front desk staff were slow and hard to find. Continental breakfast area was a bit disconcerting and grabbed some drive-thru on my way out instead.

I'd go back next time work brings me to the area.

The front desk clerk was friendly and helpful, checking me in in very quickly. The room was good sized and smelled clean which is a huge plus for me. The king sized bed was comfortable but sleeping was diffucult for me which is not the hotels fault. There were numerous restaurants nearby to choose from and many stores in case you need something. Located right off the highway, I couldn't have had a better experience at this hotel!
