Stayed two night at the hotel while going to Watkins Glen and Seneca Falls. The hotel is right off the freeway and close enough to walk around Elmira. By the way, in the summer time there is farmers market on Friday afternoon right off the hotel parking lot. The hotel itself is clean, all the staff extremely polite, but there... More

Nothing outstanding in this clearly older property that I was told, by staff, had been updated. Room was on the 2nd floor facing the parking lot. Average room; had good night's sleep. Located near a hospital and what appeared to be apartment housing. I also noted the police dept. had an office there which raised my concern about the area.... More

Up to date hotel with a friendly helpful staff. Room was comfortable and well appointed. Clean and new. We requested a room with a view of the river, which the staff was able to accommodate. Did not particularly care for the voucher for breakfast which was $10 per person limited to two people. We were three people with a child... More

Nice, clean, friendly staff, quick and easy. No complementary hot breakfast. Allows dogs. Our key to picking this hotel. Distance from the front desk to the far distant rooms was down a hallway like I'd never seen before. But parking way down there was easy and well lit.
