Booked a King size suite months in advance to move in my nephew at Cornell. I was concerned about how far it was from campus and that we were not downtown. But, the hotel was only 5 minutes easy drive to North Campus and because it was not in downtown it was not crowded and crazy and we did not have to worry about parking and going in and out of traffic. Also, entering Cornell via North Campus was good because you did not have to go through campus with all that traffic and construction to get to the freshman dorms. It was a great location. Also we were able to hop right on to a highway to get to downtown and Ithaca commons, avoiding traffic. Also, the hotel was right next to the Tompkins Bank and we went in to open an account for my nephew. There was no lines or wait to open an account. This was such a good idea because when we went to the Campus Bookstore we saw a huge line at the Tompkins Bank. Also, the hotel is situated in a small mall where there were several stores. The room was a decent size. The living room area included a couch and TV and the kitchen was clean and fully stocked with plates and cups and a fridge. We did not use the kitchen but it would be great for a family with small kids. The king size bed in the separate room was comfy with nice bedding but room was a bit small for the king size bed, leaving little room on the side. I like the fact that the sink was outside of the toilet and shower. And the free continental breakfast was a nice touch. Had the basic coffee, pastry, eggs, sausages, cereal, fruits and bagels. Overall a good hotel.
