Have returned multiple times. The management is very accommodating and very professional. The rooms are spacious and greatly facilitate getting work done. Beds are firm. I had a problem occur overnight the first room I was in. After letting management know, they apologised I was given a new room and extra time to switch over. The rooms are particularly excellent for someone who needs easy access to their vehicle. If there are any concerns. Location is great. Rooms (that I have been in) all have new laminate flooring. If something extra is needed in the room (e.g. extra chair/lamp), and you alert the management, they will do their best to accommodate. There are plenty of locations to take your dog for a walk. Location is fantastic - very close to the freeway (81), but still close to local small town stores, main street and takeout, as well as "chain" type establishments. Also convenient driving for someone who has business in both Ithaca and Syracuse. The only big problem that I have encountered is the unreliable internet. However note that the rooms also have ethernet outlets. The Cortland Econo Lodge management is constantly working to update the rooms and have changed all their cleaning crew. If you had a bad experience in the past I recommend being frank about your concerns with the management and giving it another try.

Room Tip: Have only stayed on ground floor. King suites have the most space and are closer to the entrance.

Hotel's Favourite
I had agreed to take a 10-hour technology upgrade project at a nearby department store, a 3-hour drive from my home. After a brief visit at the mall with a relative following that job, I decided to book with Choice because the temperature was too cold for a roadside nap in the car that I had anticipated needing at some point that night. This property offered the best rate of any in the vicinity of my location, and was 30 minutes on the way home, so I considered that ideal. Unlike several other Cortland hotels that are within sight (and noise) of Interstate 81, this property is located in a quiet area next to downtown, just a block away from their beautiful public library. Upon arrival close to 11 PM, I was taken aback a little by the sign in the lobby door requesting that I phone the desk because the doorbell was not working. Once I did, however, I was taken care of well. Since this is a college town, I figured that during the week the occupancy would be relatively low. I got Room 103 a few steps from the lobby and didn't need to move my car because I'd left it just a few spaces away. This is a vintage motel about 50-60 years old, so I knew what to expect. I am glad that they have invested in the latest locking technology, which requires only touching the card to the lock instead of inserting it into a (failure-prone) slot. The building's zig-zag front wall design gave the room interior an uncommon spaciousness; the only noticeable cramping is in the sizing of the tub/toilet bathroom. Upon entering, there was just a bit of mustiness in the air that went away after I turned on the Amana heating unit and warmed the room up. Unlike the Rodeway in New Jersey that I stayed at eight years ago, this room was clean and neat, with all appliances and fixtures in good working order. I enjoyed the 37-inch LG television with digital service from Charter Spectrum; while it lacked a VGA input with which I like to connect my older non-HDMI laptop, I was very pleased to see a larger screen than the 32-inch set that I typically find in a budget-level facility. Unlike the Maryland Comfort Inn room I visited last spring which had just four duplex wall outlets (including one in the bathroom), this one had seven including a quad for the microwave and refrigerator, and a power strip on one nightstand with USB jacks. I was able to charge my tablet and both cell phones without having to dig out my personal outlet splitter! The bathtub had an L-shaped grab bar for safety, and the hot water pressure was ample. While not as fancy as the newest Sunbeam or WaterPik massaging shower head, the basic twist-knob unit provided a good variety of spray options. I'm glad to see that Choice Hotels continues to furnish their rooms with Made-In-USA towels and washcloths from the 1888 Mills; I wish I could still find them at Wal-Mart where I bought some a few years ago. EconoLodge branded toiletries from Malaysia were adequate for my shower in this city's relatively hard water. The only skimping with respect to these items was with the tissues; while I prefer genuine Kleenex I realize that they can be costly. What I found in the dispenser here (with spares in the closet) were boxes of small, rough sheets that were Made-In-PRC (China). [These were worse than the abrasive Envision tissues from Georgia-Pacific that were stocked by my late mom's nursing home, where I always kept her supplied with Kleenex.] The wall was decorated with a nice conversation piece, a picture frame containing a 48-state map with state-shaped illustrations of each state's license plate. The hotel's Wi-Fi functioned well, and the phone still supported data connections for those guests needing old-style modem or fax lines (still required for some types of personal medical equipment). In the morning I went to the lobby for Continental Breakfast; the desk clerk got out bagels for me. I enjoyed them with jelly and coffee, but still yearned for the feature breakfast item of most Quality and Comfort Inns. The clerk assured me that this coming Spring they, too, would be getting those wonderful self-serve waffles from Carbon's Golden Malted. Econo Lodge was once a relatively small independent chain based in my old stomping ground, Norfolk, Virginia. I'm glad that under Choice's oversight it continues to offer good value for the budget-minded traveler.

It was not cleaned , there was hair in the drain, some kind of sticky stuff stuck on dresser by the garbage can and visible dirt on all floors absolutely filthy. It could have been a nice stay if it was just clean. Tried calling the manager for three days he is avoiding speaking to me.

Great location. Best feature is the wonderful management and staff. Extremely friendly, accommodating and solicitous. Any problem was immediately attended to. The room I stayed in was very comfortable and spacious, with newly renovated with laminate floors, which I greatly prefer. The room had plenty of space to set up laptop and work done, repacking etc. Air conditioning works well. Bed comfortable. If you (due to convenience, disability or otherwise) prefer or need close/direct access to your vehicle, this is a particularly good location.

Recently stayed at this hotel because it was close to an event I was attending and the price was ecomomical. Check-in was awkward, the front desk staff person made inappropriate remarks when I asked for a second room key, the room carpet looked and felt like it had not been vaccumed and an article of clothing was found left by the last guest. The free breakfast was sparse and once an item ran out, it was not replaced. The price was economical compared to other hotels in the area. My advice is to spring for the extra bucks and stay at a nicer hotel.
