Wow! What an experience! We stopped in Ithaca at this hotel to visit Cornell University after driving 5 1/2 hours from New Haven, CT. Unfortunately while we were driving, winter storm Vulcan was slamming the northeast. We found this hotel as a last resort after driving through thick snow and heavy rain for long hours. What a shock coming from TX! When we arrived, the street that the hotel is on was closed because of the accumulation of snow and the lack of plowing. So we reached the hotel through the parking lot of a nearby shopping center. We ended up paying a bit more for this hotel than we had been paying at the Motel 6's. About $80 compared to $40-$60 at a Motel 6. The hotel far exceeded our expectations as we had had a bad experience with a Super 8 a while back. The lobby is clean and warm! And the guy at the front desk was busy shoveling snow and trying to stop water from flooding the parking lot after the downpour of precipitation when we made our reservation over the phone. Our room was superb! Extremely clean and coming with a flat screen tv (where we proceeded to watch the weather for updates about Vulcan), a mini refrigerator, very nice and comfortable beds, a desk, and a microwave. Beds were so nice we didn't want to wake up, but unfortunately had to continue with our day/trip. Breakfast and Wi-Fi is included with your room reservation. The breakfast at this hotel was excellent. Replete with fruit and different cereals and oatmeal as well as orange juice, apple juice and a waffle iron that made delicious waffles. As I said we stayed here to visit Cornell University which was a little difficult with the amount of snow and wind, but people were friendly in Ithaca which made the trip endurable.
Overall a very nice hotel that far exceeded our expectations although we paid a little more than we usually do, but because of the circumstances it was understandable. We will probably be staying at another Super 8 in the future because of our experience here!
