ON my first trip to Ithaca to move my daughter into college I used the Comfort Inn on Elmira. It was the only place with rooms left. The staff was really nice but the place was badly in need of renovation. For my second visit, I am staying for about the same price across the street and down the block at the Hampton Inn. This is a kind of retail/hotel strip on the south edge of Ithaca, and the outside looks like a hotel strip place, which is hard to avoid in Ithaca unless you pay a lot more at the Garden Inn "downtown" (a couple of miles away). The Hampton Inn is really much nicer than I expected inside, however. The new renovation is tastefully done, impeccably clean, we were expertly and warmly greeted and attended to at reception, and the coffee, tea and hot chocolate were refreshed and available around the clock. Beds have nice sheets and spotlessly clean duvets with a good medium softness mattress and pillows. The pool looks nice and is open 6am-10pm. The breakfast room is really pleasantly designed in more of a blended moderne-cheery diner/restaurant style than most places, with a fire, muted TV, and good healthy options as well as a waffle iron. Compared to the other options in town for this price range, this is an excellent choice.
