I go to Ithaca every so often to hike around and was given this hotel 4th of July weekend by one of those travel services where you see a price and they choose the location. Big mistake. This place isn't near anything let alone the college. I should have known something was up when I had to drive across the grass off Summerhill road to get to the parking lot because the back entrance was chained off. The property is depressing and looks like it hasn't been upgraded in decades. The front clerk was rude with a 'tude telling me if I didn't like it I could hit the brix. No big deal. I gave her some of that back so it wasn't an issue. Room had coffee maker, fridge and good AC and that's all I really look for. Bed was fine. TV had no premium stations but that's ok. They supposedly had a great breakfast but because of the covid they give you a brown bag with an apple, muffin, rice crispy treat and water. The real issue for me was there was no washer or dryer on property, not even laundromats nearby. That hurt because I had planned on doing laundry when I was there. This is also a trans/res place meaning in addition to the transient guests there are people who live here. Doesn't bother me but it might bother some. I fully expect this place to be condemned by this time next year. Should have gone with the Super 8 I usually stay at on Elmira road. less

We are sorry that you could not find our main entrance. The back entrance is a fire lane and has to be closed. I wish we had the opportunity to assist you with finding a place to clean your clothes as we don't have that service at the hotel.
