one of the pamphlets in the room said Q with fluffy comforters. Problem is there were NO comforters. It was a white flat sheet with a sheet over it. Got chilly over night. Once temp was turned up, the fan made so much noise.

No carpeting!

Cons: COMMUNICATION! If your hotel is undergoing significant renovations, make that aware to guests.
When we arrived, we were greeted by a pleasant member of staff, even though it was nearly midnight. We wanted to put the room on a different credit card than reserved, so we had to wait a bit before she could figure that out in the new reservation system. We park and walk into a side entrance to go to our room....and the hallways had no carpeting. Everything was down to the padding. I have horrible allergies to dust and new this was going to be a concern. We get in to our room and it looks pleasant enough. You could tell that it had been renovated lately. As it was late at night, we went to bed...and when I laid down I saw that the air conditioning/heating unit was 6 inches from my face. Again, not pleasant to begin with, but when you have allergies, a definite issue. If this wasn't all enough, we leave on our scheduled departure date and receive a call from the hotel a few hours later to hear that our credit card had been declined. We call our credit card company and learn that the charge had been authorized, yet multiple charges of what was equivalent to half a night's rate was being repeatedly charged to the account, taking up all our available balance. Luckily, we were still in town when we received the call so we returned to the hotel, with our credit card company still on the line. Eventually, the credit card company worked things out with the hotel so the authorization appeared on their end.

Clean and Kind

The staff was very friendly and helpful.  The room was clean and updated.  Good room for the high prices that are found in Ithaca during the summer.  Just FYI to anyone who stays there is a side exit to the parking lot (towards Ithaca) that leads to a light making it much easier to take a left out of the lot.

Very convenient to Cornell University, close to main shopping area when helping Cornell students get settled into Cornell. Pleasantly surprised.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, close to cornell u.
I will definitely return to this Comfort Inn. My daughter attends Cornell and it can be difficult and expensive to land a room in the area. This location is easy to get to, very comfy bed/linens, free wifi, good breakfast bar, good coffee. Can't complain, was a pleasant surprise for I'm not the biggest fan of the brand though admit they are getting better and better.

Great hotel for the money

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
The hotel was centrally located to the Buttermilk Falls and other venues, such as malls, great restaurants, and for sight seeing. Make sure you bring your GPS to assist you with locating venues. Ithaca streets can be confusing.
