This is a small family-run motel. It is an older property, but appears to have been updated relatively recently, and, given that the owners actually live on the property, seems to be well-cared for (the parking lot was recently resurfaced, etc.). Some reviews have been critical about the price (we paid $99/night plus tax for 1 queen bed), but this motel is very reasonable compared with other hotels in the Ithaca area. We only stayed one night while picking our daughter up from a summer program at Cornell University. When we dropped her off at the beginning of her program, we stayed at a Days Inn in Cortland, but that was about 30 minutes from Ithaca and we wanted to be closer to campus on the return trip. We saw this place and decided we would stay here on the way back after stopping in to inquire about the rates. It's true that it is nothing fancy, but it was more than adequate and very clean, which I am particular about. There was free breakfast in the office area which consisted of muffins, bananas, cereal and coffee/juice. Some have criticized that the muffins were pre-packaged, but I thought they were fine. I can guarantee you that any hotel offering free breakfast is not baking the muffins from scratch, so I think that criticism is a little harsh. We had no issues with hearing other guests through the walls. The bathroom was a little small, but there were just two of us so we managed. The owners are pleasant, and I would stay here again without hesitation.
