Hotel was very nice. Managed Covid well, good policies and staff. Great breakfast, staff make little bags of food to order. Hotel and room felt very new. Everything was clean and well maintained. Perfect experience.

The hotel is clean, convenient and has. Great value. Why ruin that with horrible Spectrum TV and slow WiFi. Bad enough to consider other options as I work from the hotel when staying here. I am adding more because it has to be at least 200 characters

This trip was a necessity for our child's college move-in plan and we stayed 3 nights. Our King suite was spacious, clean and updated. There were two desks that allowed us plenty of space to work and a very comfy settee. The Wi-Fi service worked great. We had to order in meals during COVID and there was plenty of space to eat and relax in the room. I am a clean freak and everything from towels/bedding/carpet/appliances were clean. The breakfast process was super easy and almost faster than traditional pre-COVID self service. Plenty of breakfast choices. The staff, from check-in to breakfast, were friendly and accommodating. Very easy to get extra supplies that were hung on the door for non-contact service. The lighting in the bathroom was pretty terrible as another reviewer mentioned, but I didn't have to look good for a special event, so it didn't matter LOL. Our room location didn't bother us, but if you are a light sleeper, ask for a room away from the road because there is noise from road traffic. We liked the convenient location close to shopping and many restaurants. We will definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel very much. We stayed here during COVID and we felt safe with the precautions the hotel took. They still served breakfast but orders had to be placed for safety. The rooms were spacious, clean and the beds were very comfortable. The location was excellent, we were able to walk to Buttermilk Falls and other attractions (wineries, brewery, restaurants, stores) all were easy to get to. Thank you to the staff for a great stay! Would def. recommend and plan to go back!

My sister and I stayed at this hotel while on a “bucket list” trip to the Finger Lakes. The room was great and they are going above and beyond with their Covid 19 precautions. While other hotels along our way cancelled free breakfast completely or offered a brown bag breakfast of yogurt and a muffin, this a Holiday Inn Express still has their free hot breakfast! Instead of buffet style, you fill out an order form and the two worked HUSTLE to get your order. You can eat there or take it back to your room. Those two working the breakfast bar were great at keeping up with the Saturday morning demand! We wanted to tip them but they would not accept our money.
