You may be interested to read the positive reviews which represent a fraction of the very satisfied customers who stay at the hotel. One out of a hundred find an older family run establishment not what was expected and become or by nature are somewhat hypercritical. The owner of the hotel is here every day seven days a week working with 3 other staff in keeping the rooms clean, maintenance, etc, though he is 80 years old. Many many people are in love with the Hillside Inn and return year after year. (The satisfied don't tend to write reviews, only those with some negative axe to grind.)
My wife wanted to book one of the chain hotels in the city of Ithaca - as someone who travels for business I much prefer the local flavor when traveling - I am glad that we decided to stay a the Hillside Inn- the place was exactly what I was looking for as we took my daughter for her first college experience..your inn added to a wonderful weekend. The location couldn't be better and my wife and I enjoyed getting to know your staff. They went out of their way for us.. We will stay at the Hillside Inn every visit!
I am writing this a long time after the event but I had a great stay at the Hillside Inn. A fraction of the price of other places in town and perfect for visiting Cornell. Nice to support a family business too. Furniture and fittings old but the room was immaculate, bed was so comfy with lovely clean sheets and the shower was fantastic. So what more do you need? And the staff were really lovely too - gave me a lift to the bus station when I left and I had to force money to them for this! Cheap, clean and cheerful - I hope to book again!
If you're going to Cornell, this is a great place to stay. Location is walk distance to Cornell main buldings, and eating is also near. You can also go Downtown on foot. Service is great, very helpful and friendly people. It isn't a luxurious hotel, furniture is old, but everything is very clean. Internet works very well from my room.
Hillside Inn is a GREAT place...
if you need a place to sleep this is GREAT.
NO spas... NO pools...
but that's OK if you don't need spas and pools right?
VERY convenient to Cornell U...
local bistros... hiking trails...
and the lovely fingerlake vineyards.
The staff are most helpful...
Rhonda, Robert, Jim (the owner),
Garrett and Pete...
they were ALL nice.
Now if you are looking for a 5 star hotel
this ain't the spot...
this is a down-home earthy-family owned spot...
If that's your THING
then this is KING.
