This hotel is pretty much what you expect from a Holiday Inn Express (HIE) in terms of cleanliness and efficient stay for a reasonable price.
It is about 15 minutes drive from downtown Syracuse. But it is in the middle of nowhere. No restaurants nearby, apart from a Buffalo wings joint. The hotel is in front of vacant lots and unused warehouses. The whole surroundings are very much rundown and unattractive.
Nice size swimming pool. The fitness room was small even for HIE standards. I had better breakfasts at other HIE properties. Good coffee but limited selection of items. No cream cheese for the bagels and a pancake machine that doesn’t deliver.
Overall a reasonable budget alternative but with some downsides.
