Went to pick up our daughter at college, didn't want to drive the 4 1/2 hours back home the same day. So we stayed at Embassy Inn Motel. Very nice motel. Family owned. Not busy the day we went so it was quiet. Room was typical motel style, bathroom was a little small with shower( no tub) with pink tile. Bed was very comfortable. It had a desk with two chairs and a mini fridge. The only thing is they had the fridge under the heater so nothing really stayed that cold. Breakfast was coffee, pre packaged muffins and pastries, bananas and cereal. They also have water for sale($1 a bottle). Would stay here again when in the area.

We had stayed here many times in the past. The facility needs serious updating, but for the price it wasn't too bad. Due to Covid, we needed to postpone our trip. We were told we could re-book and our deposit will be used for another stay. When I tried to do just that, the proprietor said that time has passed and then had the nerve to ask if I was interested in booking again. No thanks!

Stopped off here to break the journey on our way from Rhode Island to the Canadian border. Out of town, but only a 20 min drive into town for shops and restaurants. Run by a very nice Asian family who welcomed us pleasantly. Nice room, very clean and comfortable with a fridge, TV and a micro wave, hair dryer, coffee machine. There was no where to have breakfast so you went down to reception for tea/coffee muffins, Danish pastries, juice, cereals, fruit and took it back to your room on trays where there was a table and chairs provided to eat at. It was situated on a main road, but the double glazing was good and it did not disturb. Thoroughly recommend it

Ok, I’m in Ithaca and I wanted to save some money. The place is dated but clean. The room was small (#5) but the bathroom was smaller than any microtel I have stayed in. The bed was fine, TV was not flat screen and the internet was functional. Unfortunately I have been in worse.

We paid $100 to stay here Sunday night. The door doesn’t close so they put a cable on the door to keep it closed. The refrigerator didn’t work. The beds are HARD and I’m only 5’4” and my feet hung off the end of the bed. There was no soap to wash your hands or body. Never staying here again. This was our first hotel experience in Ithaca. We didn’t want to spend a lot of money, we were just visiting a college, but this hotel is at best a $40 per night hotel.
