Right after entering our first room, my wife found the toilet had a lot of toilet paper in it with ,, shall I say, brownstuff? She flushed, but should have waited ,, I went to desk, reported it, they offered and I took another room, for a small reduction in price. Unfortunatly for us the weekend we had picked was costly due to a college event weekend at Cornell, did not know until after hard time finding available rooms.
Location, a bit out of city, yet close to everything, no noisy roads or city traffic to listen to.
Drivers of shuttle bus are very nice and helpful; the shuttle bus service is great; although the hotel is not in downtown, the supermarket near the hotel provides great convenience for buying food and drinks.
Free transportation to/from Cornell and airport at regular times. Complimentary Breakfast . Gym to exercise.
Exercise room very small
great staff very helpful breakfast was good
Not about the hotel, about Ithaca - it would be hard for walking travellers.
The shuttle bus is free for as far where I've traveled (Cornell University Goldwin Smith Hall; Ithaca Bus Station, Ithaca Tompkins Airport), and the gentleman is very pleased to help the customers The room is indeed large enough, and the apparatus are environmental friendly.
Convenient, comfortable, welcoming staff
Complimentary breakfast is nice, but always the same: eggs, sausage patty, waffles, etc. Could use a little more variety.
Wifi was very fast
Room was great. Plenty of space for our dog's bed. Staff was wonderfully accommodating, helpful and friendly.
Enjoyed the fireplace! Everything was perfect.
Hair in the shower from previous guest.
Very quiet room in building 3. Did not hear any other guests. Literally right beside Cornell U.
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?
Price was low for the area.
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!
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.
Convenient location to Ithaca college
Cleanliness and maintenance were lacking and very overpriced.
Location near Cornell University.
a bit far from The Commons and the University
Clean and new facilities; king size bed extremely comfortable; heated lamp in bathroom; electric fireplace
The rooms and hallway were a bit musty and had a too strong “air freshener” smell. Bathtub area could have been a bit cleaner.
The desk clerk was helpful, knowledgeable, informative and professional in an appropriately casual way.
"Agricultural" aroma from nearby farms in the evening.
Clean, staff was friendly and helpful. Just fine for the money.
We enjoyed all of our stay :)
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!
Room a little worn & tired looking.
The entire staff were extremely helpful and friendly!! Loved the shuttle service for getting around. Location great!
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.
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.
Hard to find the entrance.
Good value Close to the college my daughter is attending clean helpful people at the desk
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.
Bed was comfortable; variety of food choices for breakfast.
It is a bit far from the town and the campus
The room was big and well equipped with a fridge, microwave and a coffee maker. Shuttle service was excellent!!!
Dirty smelly hallways. Strong cigarette smoke in the rooms. rooms. Old food in refrigerator.
Proximity to Cornell University. The beds are comfortable.
