We booked last minute for an en route stop, found the room as expected for this category of hotel, very basic but spotless. Breakfast includes cereals, fruit (bananas), selection of packaged pastries, tea, coffee ampnd there is a cappuccino machine.

This is a budget motel in a city of high end accommodations. I found it appealing on first sight. We were able to check in at 2:30. Our room was small but spotless. We had plenty of room for our things. One really nice feature was the coating on the window in the front of our room which made seeing in difficult so we did not have to keep the curtain closed as at so many motels. It was Cornell Reunion weekend and we felt lucky to pay only $89 when most area accommodations were $200 or more with a three night minimum. We stayed only one night.

The breakfast was take out and the usual highly sugared high calorie muffins marked on label 2 servings so they were actually 460 calories each. Bananas were available.

Parking at our door is always convenient. We were on the first floor and had strong wifi connection.

Older motel, but rooms up-dated and clean. Price was high ($110/night). Rooms are small and more like $60 would have been fair. However next place was $239 due to parents weekend at University. I guess the price goes up when there are events in the area. In-wall heater was very noisy and it was a newer unit. Had to turn it off to sleep. We will stay again.

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.

Room Tip: The property has two sections - one part is just one level, while the other part has two levels. We stayed in the single level part, room 5. We had no issues with noise.

Decided at the last minute to spend a weekend in Ithaca. Most of the big hotels were booked and the others were very expensive so based on the reviews I booked this one. We paid $136 for this motel which was I would say was on the higher side for this motel. However, the rooms were decent and bathroom was clean. Free-wifi and so called free breakfast. No seating area for the breakfast but the fare was good. Around 6-7 miles away from Ithaca downtown.

Room Tip: Stayed in Room No. 1 and it was quiet and clean.
