Very nice clean hotel. The staff were pleasant. Hotel runs shuttle to a casino. There is a nice restaurant on site. The only complaint is that there is a lack of places to eat locally but this is hardly the hotel's fault.

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...

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....

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...

After reading a few reviews on local hotels, I was braced for a couple not too pleasant nights and was glad to be wrong. The rooms were clean and quiet. The staff pleasant and ready to serve.

I've been grading hotels on a scale of 1 to 5 in six different categories: Customer Service, Room Presentation, Room Functions, Sleep Quality, Bath, and Extras. Hope it helps!
