Good lord, when rooms are described as quaint, run the other way. We booked late for Cornell's parents' weekend so this was the only place we could find. The "ice bucket" was a tupperware bowl! The rooms have not been updated since the 1970's. One...More

I live in NYC, but typically once or twice per year I crave Ithaca. I keep Hillside Inn on speed dial for these moments -- you won't find a water wall or lounge music, but you'll find a clean, comfortable bed, fast internet, and all...More

This was the worst hotel experience I have ever had. When I returned from downtown to get in the bed I saw TWO HAIRS in the sheets and something brown that resembled a mouse turd. I am not sure if they even had washed the...More
