8/10 Very good

Room was comfortable and priced well For what you get. Breakfast was good with many options. We checked in late Friday night and desk staff was very pleasant and helpful. Only issue was housekeeping both mornings were stationed outside our room and VERY loud. Working on separate rooms but yelling back and forth to each other talking from room to room. Music playing…group of 4 women staff smoking at doorways you couldn’t get i. Or out of the building they were somewhat consuming the doorway. We probably shouldn’t have been placed so close to the laundry area since the hotel was mostly empty but we had two late nights so would’ve been nice if they were respectful enough to keep it down so guests could sleep in a little bit.

6/10 Good

No staff available to fix toilet. Staff wanted to move us to another room after we were already moved to another room because we couldnt get the door to the room unlocked. My son could not connect any ofhis devices to internet. Bagel was stale, so we tried cereal which was also stale.

Nice stay in Ithaca
The food/breakfast was wonderful!! The dining area and room was clean and comfortable. The radiator in the room was very noisy. Difficult to get to sleep without ear plugs.
