Score from 72 reviews Very good
Enjoyed the fireplace! Everything was perfect.
Very quiet room in building 3. Did not hear any other guests. Literally right beside Cornell U.
Hair in the shower from previous guest.
Price was low for the area.
Mattress was not comfortable, there was no shampoo in the room when we checked in, and the receptionist asked us how much we wanted to spend for dinner when we asked for a restaurant recommendation. Isn't there a better way of asking what kind of restaurant we want?
We frequently visit Ithaca and of all the hotel choices we like the Best Western, but we sometimes have to stay elsewhere when they are full!
Convenient location to Ithaca college
My room smelled strongly of cigarettes and I was not informed through Booking.com or the hotel staff that this would be a smoking room.
Location near Cornell University.
Cleanliness and maintenance were lacking and very overpriced.
Clean and new facilities; king size bed extremely comfortable; heated lamp in bathroom; electric fireplace
a bit far from The Commons and the University
The desk clerk was helpful, knowledgeable, informative and professional in an appropriately casual way.
The rooms and hallway were a bit musty and had a too strong “air freshener” smell. Bathtub area could have been a bit cleaner.
Clean, staff was friendly and helpful. Just fine for the money.
"Agricultural" aroma from nearby farms in the evening.
When my date and I arrived for a wedding, our invitation had detailed a shuttle would be leaving from the Best Western. When we spoke to the staff, they kindly told us they did not receive communication from the bride and groom about the shuttle. They honored the invitation though and provided a shuttle to and from the wedding. My boyfriend and I appreciated it immensely since we were coming out of state. We also loved that the room had a jacuzzi bathtub!
We enjoyed all of our stay :)
The entire staff were extremely helpful and friendly!! Loved the shuttle service for getting around. Location great!
Room a little worn & tired looking.
Spacious room, nicely furnished; access to internet; quiet location at dead end with view on wheat field; microwave, refrigerator; free, copious hot/cold breakfast. Friendly unruffled staff.
Many unguarded entry doors; long walk, in parts outside, to lobby and breakfast room; breakfast room overcrowded four days in a row. Poor quality mattress of king bed kept me awake as my partner moved. Pricey for 2-star motel.
Good value Close to the college my daughter is attending clean helpful people at the desk
Hard to find the entrance.
Bed was comfortable; variety of food choices for breakfast.
room had insufficient and outdated furniture and poor lighting: paper plates and plastic utensils at breakfast; tables in breakfast area too small for 4 people.
The room was big and well equipped with a fridge, microwave and a coffee maker. Shuttle service was excellent!!!
It is a bit far from the town and the campus
Proximity to Cornell University. The beds are comfortable.
Dirty smelly hallways. Strong cigarette smoke in the rooms. rooms. Old food in refrigerator.
Staff was nice. Room was cleaned every day.
The pillows and bed hurt my neck and back. Location is pretty far out of town so you can't walk to places in town (no bars). Saw a few bugs in the bathroom but they may have been stragglers from our hike. Price was very high for the quality of the room
Nice big room. Ideal location for a stopover whilst driving back to NYC.
Breakfast facilities not as good as some competitors
Location. Front desk staff
Odor of room. Dust on furniture. Cigarette burn marks on comforter and sheets. Maybe a smoking room which was not what I wanted? Old and small towels.
Mattresses Breakfast room not big enough
I love the location because we travel by C2C bus which drop us at the hotel lobby. There is free shuttle bus to Cornell ,any building and Ithaca downtown. Breakfast is very good.
The room was very dirty as if nobody clean it for years. Too pricy.
The maids were very nice and responsive to any requests.
The pool was not available until Wednesday or Thursday. Together with the rainy weather, I only got to use it once.
room cleaning was substandard
Room was clean, furniture nice, bed good, much of staff nice
Called at 10.30 pm for shuttle pickup and told we were out of luck, too busy and service stops at 11:00. Totally unacceptable; left stranded after being told :just call, we;ll get you." Why couldn't they make an extra run? When finally returned, deskman basically said, tough luck but we were busy. Next day manager was appalled at our treatment, assked if we took a cab and offered to pay. Nobody made that suggestion the evenign we needed help. Just disgusted!!!
