This feels like home whenever we go to Ithaca and we are coming up to our 5th year not including college visits and auditions. We have stayed at 3 other hotels in the Ithaca area and this is the best in terms of price at the time and the conditions.
The rooms are always clean and comfortable. The ladies in the breakfast area are superb and the breakfast is very good for this level of hotel. In fact this hotel made me realize what I can expect from Hampton Inns and we opted to stay in Hampton Inn in Owego during Cornell graduation when all the hotels in the area and cortland area were all booked or super overpriced! One year when we stayed for 4 days as mini vacation when both kids were in Ithaca, (Cornell and IC) and the front desk staff was very helpful in info what gorges we wanted to see. We've been there so often I even recognize some of the chamber staff and they are also very friendly and nice.
For a comparison of similar priced hotels in the area:
Holiday Inn exec Tower Downtown- room was fine but no breakfast, not even coffee so it was a pain to go get some at a local shop nearby and go back to the room at finish waking/getting ready to go out! Also the biggest problem is their parking lot which is limited and if you don't get a space then too bad! We have to park on the streets our last night luckily we found a spot right outside the hotel.
Country Inn and Suites by Carlson - right across from IC (Ithaca College), our room had a little sitting area which was nice. Staff was nice they are close second to Hampton for us only because their breakfast did not taste as good and the Hampton Inn in General is slightly better condition.
Super 8 - booked this based on the rave reviews and maybe they had a bad weekend but the room was not cleaned well, we saw cup rings on the dresser. Waited for a long time to get shampoo since we didn't have any and the beds were not made. I felt so awful that I really wanted to leave for a other hotel had there been any! I see that recent comments have been good so maybe they got their act together but if will never take that chance again!
In a week we will be trying the Best Western University Inn only because Hampton costs a bit more and we are just looking to stay the night as to not get too tired to do a one day trip when picking up our son. Will report back!
