“Adequate!”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

We stopped here after visiting the nearby Corning Museum of Glass. We were given a very friendly welcome by Scott. We were given an upper room as requested (no elevator). The room was basic but clean and included a very efficient fridge, microwave, iron and board and an old model 26"? TV. Although non-smoking the corridor had a very smokey odour but the room was OK. In the morning we found there was a lot of sound transmission including noisy pipes.

Although small the breakfast room was unoccupied when we used it. Choices included the usual waffles but also french toast and bacon. The lobby offers coffee and cookies and popcorn in the evening. Other than a Walmart and Home Depot therecis little else nearby.

This was an OK stay at an economical hotel.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our hotel!

I will pass along to Scott your kind words regarding his welcome. We do have the fridge and microwave in all of the rooms, as well as the ironing board. We are currently looking into updating the television sets.

I am glad to hear that you did not have any smoke smell in your room. I apologize if the noise in the morning woke you up, we do have ear plugs and eye masks as part of our sleep program if you are interested the next time you come, just ask our front desk at check in.

Our breakfast items do change daily, so next time you might be able to try some of our eggs and sausage as well.

We hope to see you again soon!

Sincerely,
Jackie DePue

it's not a 5 star resort....so, don't expect one....but, this hotel provides all your basic needs for a very reasonable price...there's no elev....so, if stairs are a problem...yer in trouble ...so, make sure to ask for a first floor unit....Stairs double as the fitness center.!!...anyway, ..our room on the second floor was very peaceful, clean, and very comfortable. Parking is plentiful..Free breakfast is ehh...waffle maker is always a winner...but, if yer expecting a hearty breakfast...you better hit the road...coffee is good, tho....cookies and popcorn provided in the lobby...... If approaching from the east...you'll be tempted to make an illegal u-turn by the walmart...in order to get into the hotel's parking lot...don't do it....you can travel 1/8 of a mile more and make a legal turnaround at the traffic circle...or...go into walmart's parking lot...and come right back out legally....police will ticket you for more than you paid for the room....just sayin'...

We spent 2 nights here recently and had an issue with one room. The staff was excellent in moving us to a smaller room but still accommodating. For the 2nd night they moved us to the size we had originally wanted which made for a better night for all 3 of us. The staff went above and beyond to make sure our needs were met. The breakfast is good and plentiful and my son loved having dvds to watch while relaxing at night.

This was a well kept hotel with an excellent staff who proved to be very friendly as well as helpful. The breakfast in the morning was excellent, the rooms were comfortable and clean. We enjoyed our stay very much and felt it was a very good value for the price we paid. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for an inexpensive place to stay the night. They offer little extras like popcorn and cookies as well as a selection of DVDs you can borrow from the front desk. We didn't happen to use them but it was a pleasant surprise to find them available. It's above and beyond the norm. The staff made us feel welcome the minute we set foot in the facility.

My husband and I were looking for an inexpensive, but clean place to lay our heads for the night. The staff was friendly, the room was very clean and we enjoyed breakfast as well. I would recommend this Econo Lodge. It's close to the Corning Museum and fits the bill if you're looking to go on a budget.

Reviewed 9 December 2013

First off, we got to meet Scott while we were there, and all the other reviews on Scott and the rest of the staff we met are spot on! First off if you are expecting a 'resort' or well appointed rooms, why are you reading a review on an Econolodge? That being said the room was well furnished, comfortable bed, heat worked well, bathroom was a bit worn, but clean. Exactly what we would expect from a motel at this price point. Breakfast included a cereal and juice bar as well as wafflemaker, bacon and french toast. We were visiting the Corning Museum of Glass and arrived earlier than expected, about 1:30 PM, checked right in and the clerk who checked us in told us about 'Sparkle' and recomended that for a holiday festival while there. Lots of choices to eat close by, from Applebee's to Arby's. Quiet, convenient, and friendly. We used a coupon from hotelcoupons.com for an even better rate. All in all the reviews here and particularly those who mentioned Scott and the rest of the staff were one of the reasons we selected the Econolodge. My experience is if the staff is friendly and outgoing, they are proud of the property and the property is generally going to satisfy our needs. When we returned to the motel after dinner and an afternoon at the museum we were greeted by deer in the field next to the parking lot, warm fresh cookies and popcorn in the lobby. All in all an enjoyable stay and will stay again when we come back!

Room Tip: As others have mentioned, no elevator so first floor if you have a lot of stuff to carry.

Thank you very much for your review on our hotel! I have shared your kind words with Scott, as well as our other staff members,who greatly appreciates your positive feedback. We strive to have excellent customer service and reviews like yours help to reinforce that with my staff.

I am glad to hear that your bed was comfortable, your room was clean, and that our breakfast was enjoyable. I am also happy to hear that you were able to get checked in early.

We hope to see you again soon, and if you come back in the spring or summertime our deer in the field are also accompanied by some cute ducks that visit us!
