Verified Reviews of Quality Inn Ithaca University Area

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Just Okay"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Reasonable price and we were allowed to take our dog (for an extra $25 only learned about at checked in). Also learned at check in that there’s no breakfast due to COVID 19. Rooms have stale smell.

03-Aug-2020 Verified Review, stayed from Sat Aug 01 to Sun Aug 02 2020 at a $68.99 average nightly rate.
"I would give this property another chance."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The front desk personnel was friendly. The rooms were clean. Location was perfect for visiting buttermilk falls. I also liked the sliding glass door to get to your car easily. The A/C could have been better, our fridge was broken, the two lamps on the sides of the bed would not turn on and there was no free/any breakfast at all. It was still worth the price we paid for the room though.

"Great hotel, close to Watkins Glen."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
This is a real nice hotel within 20 miles of Watkins Glen. Very clean with free WiFi and a friendly staff. I especially liked the sliding glass door in our room that leads out to a dog walking area. Our German shepherds liked it too.
