We stayed here for a weekend in Ithaca only because other more upscale hotels required a two night minimum. We were greeted cheerfully and efficiently, but when we opened our room, it had not been cleaned. We called down to the front desk and Dakota came up IMMEDIATELY with keys to another, larger room down the hall which was lovely. Not only did we get an upgrade, but our room charge was steeply discounted. This was way more than we expected for such a minor mistake, but we were very grateful and knew we had come to a place that values service. We would certainly stay here again.

Was staying here as part of a trip to Ithaca College. Wasn’t expecting much as I am used to staying at higher end properties for work. I am a Platinum Ambassador so it’s nice when I get some acknowledgement of my status. A giant shout out to Dakota at the front desk. Other more full service properties could learn from her. A big can do attitude, smile and how can I help. I happen to have forgotten my toiletry bag and before I could ask she’s packing a bag for me with everything I need on the house. A list of restaurant recos and type of food. Water and snacks. A checkout that fit my schedule with no push back. It was a quick stay but I would come back in a heartbeat.

Although not close to downtown, this fairfield inn is very close to Walmart, trader joe's and other stores. Typical room, AC is a bit noisy, and wall is a bit thin. Great shower water pressure and temperature.

I have stayed at this property before, and in the past it was fine for what I needed (in and out for college drop offs). I’m not sure what has changed with their policies and staff, but things are different. Cleaning rags left in my room, broken lamp, cold air blowing when the heat was on, extremely noisy durning the night (either the pipes or something in the building... it sounded like someone was running a vacuum). The tv stopped working which was a bummer. The cherry on the sundae was the awful people next door who not only woke me up with their screaming and slamming doors, but made me uncomfortable as a single traveler. When I called, I was uncertain if it was resolved because they continued to fight. I asked at the desk and the sense of urgency was minimal. There are many choices to make when dropping your kids off to college. This will be taken off the list. And side note- I am a frequent traveler with Marriott. This is disappointing at best.

Stayed here for a fall visit to the Finger Lakes area. Great location near downtown Ithaca, very easy to get around by car. Free parking, internet, in room microwave and fridge. All COVID protocols in place, masks required, exceptionally clean room and common areas, appreciated that no in room cleaning services were provided for stays less than 5 days - meant absolutely no one would be entering the room while we were there. Trash, dirty linens could be placed outside the door to be taken care of. A free bagged breakfast was provided in the morning in the lobby as well as coffee/tea. Socially distanced tables were available to eat in the lobby. if you wanted a place to eat - we opted to buy food and eat in our room. Staff were very pleasant, professional, and always masked. Would definitely return if ever in the area.
