Reviewed 4 November 2014

I was here this past weekend and, even though it is a Holiday Inn Express and I was not expecting much, it was still pretty much a let down. The pros are that it is very close to the highway so you can get on and off Route 81 easily, and there is a Perkins just across the parking lot...

Recently stayed at this location while visiting a relative who is a student at Cornell. Getting to location was easy-breezy from the Syracuse airport -- located right off the interstate and convenient to several stores and restaurants. Check-in was easy and the staff was super nice. The breakfast was substantial -- especially for this type of hotel: BACON (yum!), turkey...

Stayed for one night on our college tour circuit. From check-in to check-out it was a great stay. The folks at the front desk were so helpful in recommending a place to eat and even where I could buy a new car phone charger. The room was typical of HI Express and there were plenty of TV stations to choose...
