My room (893) was very nice, and quiet, with great bedding, towels, and linens. Free wifi worked as advertised. Breakfast not included. Room was not ready until 4:00 PM though. Hotel is under renovation, including parking which is closed - but there is a pay garage right across the street. This hotel is a step up from motels I have...

I will say I was very surprised by the hotel after seeing it online. When I booked, the front desk told me the hotel was under major renovations and that due to capacity, we'd be staying in an old room that hasn't been updated yet. However, the entrance to the hotel and our room was very outdated and had a...

This was our second stay at Hotel Ithaca. I like the location, and the property is currently under major renovation. Having said that, we stayed in one of the older wings and the room was really sub standard. On a previous visit we requested a renovated room and it was excellent. So for future visitors, I would strongly recommend requesting...

Awful service (we were not able to get into our room until after 5pm). We immediately pointed out to the front desk that our room had a broken toilet. When we returned after dinner it was still broken. Maintenance came up again to our room (as the front desk claimed they had fixed it) and said they couldn't fix it....

I haven't seen this dirty of a hotel room in a long time. Water stained walls and ceilings. No on-site parking. Smelled like weed and drunk college kids kept us up all night with no apologies the next day after security kicked them out. Customer service is awful. Terrible place to stay.

Where to start? The front desk could not handle simple questions (extra half hour of check out, etc) without checking with someone else. Maid service was 'limited.' Ran out of in-room coffee packets and we were told to go to the lobby to get some coffee. Maybe not a bad thing as the in-room coffee was terrible. The food was...

The hotel is currently being renovated. The front access was blocked by parked cars at 8 pm so I found parking in a back lot and got in through a back door. In the morning the exits were blocked by caution tape- I drove over it to get out. The carpeting on the lobby staircase is stained. The room flooring...
