“Okay Stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2009

We stayed here three nights while traveling around Western New York. I felt we got a good rate (50+ mature traveler). The lady who checked us in was very pleasant and helpful. I cannot remember her name unfortunately. We had problems with the toilet backing up and she was great about helping and offered to switch rooms for us, giving us a couple of options including an upgrade to a king suite at no extra charge. (We opted to stay in the room we had and deal with the toilet problem). This hotel is nothing fancy, but it met our needs. I believe they had upgraded some of the rooms although ours had not yet been done. The hotel was quiet, not many people staying the nights we were there. The location is okay at the edge of town. It is very close to Buttermilk Falls State Park and a few miles further to Robert Treman State Park, both very beautiful places and well worth a visit, especially Robert Treman. The breakfast area in the hotel is very small and I found there was not enough room to sit down on one occasion. The lady who managed the breakfast area was not very customer friendly. When I was finishing my breakfast one morning and it was about 10:00 a.m., she began cleaning the area, putting away food and a few people had just come in and were trying to get some breakfast items. She did not offer to help them get things, just kept putting the food away. Overall, not very friendly. Too bad, when most of the other people working in the hotel were more upbeat. So, to sum up; if you are looking for a basic hotel that is fairly satisfactory while staying in the nice town of Ithaca, this is a pretty good choice.

This the most expensive Comfort Inn on our tour (>$200/night). We got a kingsize bed in the same room as the jacuzzi was! Besides that we had one chair, an office chair. The breakfast room was far to small for the amount of people that were in the hotel and the breakfast itself was very simple.
Altogether, no good "choice"!

We found the staff to be very friendly, the hotel clean, and the continental breakfast much better than most. It is also very pet friendly with a yard in the back that comes with clean up bags.

We stayed recently at the Comfort Inn in Ithaca and everything was great. Was worried after reading a couple reviews but everything exceeded out expectations. Staff was very helpful with directions and restaurant choices. Rooms were very clean. Breakfast had the usual choices, it was crowded at times but there were trays so you could go back to your room if wanted. They also had a nice little seating area outside if the weather was nice. Prices were a little high, but I guess that is to be expected for the area. In calling other hotels they were about the same if not less. Overall we had a wonderful stay and will definitely stay here again.

Thread bare towels, dirty blankets. Ithaca College parents beware! Don't go here.

Our daughter is a freshman at Ithaca College. Ithaca is a college town, making hotel reservations difficult at times. We stayed at the Comfort Inn for a college open house last September and we were pleased. While it's certainly not a five-star hotel, it was clean and well-maintained.

Fast forward to August 2009, when we stayed there while bringing daughter to Ithaca College for the fall semester. We wound up in a "smoking room," which the staff claimed we had requested (neither my wife nor I have ever smoked) which, in addition to having an overpowering smell of cigarettes, had dirty blankets and linen that were either too old and threadbare or hadn't been changed from the previous occupants.

The hallways were dirty and the hotel seemed old and tired. Even the TV listing sheet and accompanying room literature were wrinkled and stained.

I stayed for a night with my wife and two teenage girls. It is on the outskirts of town near a shopping mall. The drive to town is short, 5 minutes. The room was nicer than I thought it would be for the price. The breakfast was continental but just fine. The staff were good. I'd happily stay again, but I wouldn't rave about it.
