State Theatre

Pros: The room was lovely - clean and close to everything - didn't have to drive anywhere
Cons: There was some stains in the bathroom but nothing to say it was dirty - just needed a little extra tlc
Location: perfect
Close proximity to everything - could walk to Theatre, restaurants and shops. Not far at all to any of these things

Pleasant stay.

Pros: Free Internet, indoor pool, close to city, friendly staff, overall cleanliness
Cons: Noisy, no breakfast was served, no safe in room
Reviews shed negative light on hotel. Room was par for Holiday Inn, I was not disappointed what so ever. Staff was friendly and room did the job. My only complaint is that the restaurant was seriously overpriced, two meals were $40 and food was not worth $15... I would not hesitate to stay here again though, I will know better than to order room service though...

Hotel was comfortable and convenient

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
The room was clean and comforable. The WIFI was convenient to use. Everything seemed well kept and in good repair. There were not enough television stations offered for my liking.

Good for a college visit

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
Cons: no free breakfast
We stayed at this hotel because it was the only one available due to a college related conference held in the area. It was more expensive that what we usually pay when visiting our child at college, but we were pleasantly surprised by how nice our room in the tower was and how convenient the hotel was for shopping, etc. Our child is living off campus and the house was walking distance from the hotel. The Commons, with its many shops and downtown Ithaca with its many places to eat were within walking distance.

Hotel includes old and new sections.

Pros: Close restaurants
We have stayed at this hotel several times and have had mixed experiences. There are nice/new areas of the hotel and there are old/tired wings that are "motel-like" - doors that lead to the outside. Ask for the tower.

backside rooms are "motel-like" - door dierctly to outdoors.

We have stayed here on several occasions and the rooms in the tower and rooms near the pool are much nicer than the rooms on the backside of the hotel. The room on the backside was "tired" - older furnishings and had a heavy smell of room deodorizer.

find another hotel

This is not the best hotel in town...staff is cranky, hotel is in need of some major repairs, and restaurant should be closed!The staff at the front desk was very unattentive to all guests, busy chatting with each other. The housekeeping is not great. Not worth the money and a waste of the location. No reason to stay here at all. Lots of other choices in town, we moved after 2 nights of a 4 night stay.
