They didn’t have enough staff on for a busy weekend. They checked me in at 2:00 had 2 rooms my second room wasn’t ready until 4:00 pm had to go to wedding at 3:00. Came back was able to get in room two hours later staff came up screaming asking who was I room wasn’t checked in. They sold room to someone else they came into room saw my feet in bed and left I didn’t hear this. When staff found out I checked in at two they where mad at early staff but screamed at me to come down I’m handicapped and had to climb stairs again because they had no elevator. They checked me in again and when I went back up my keys where turned off. I will never use this hotel again.

Good value, great staff

Stayed during a busy fall weekend in the region. The price was pretty comparable to others in the immediate area, but the facility was much nicer than some of the other, older ones nearby. They allowed us an early check-in to get ready for the wedding we were in town for. Rooms were well appointed, modern, and comfortable. My only slight complaint is that the property is directly on the interstate which can be a bit noisy. If you are able, request a room on the side of the hotel further from the road to take care of this.

Cigarette smoke smell was overpowering

Pros: Location
Cons: Clean it.
The room smelled heavily of cigarette smoke. I was told when I checked in there would be a $150 cleaning charge if we smoked in the room. I was also told the were no other rooms available. Overall, the room was not cleaned, and there were beer bottle rings on the night stands , and the carpet hadn't been vacuumed. This was our second stay in two months, and it was similar the first time. The management doesn't seem to care.

overpriced

We stayed three nights in May 2009, during Cornell's graduation weekend. Prices were ridiculous in Ithaca, so we chose Cortland, about 20 miles away, but their price was almost as bad. The room was OK, breakfast OK, but some kind of sand and gravel operation next door kicked up a lot of dust. The building is rundown and needs a major renovation.

Great value for whirlpool room!

We accidentally booked this hotel online, but glad we did. The whirlpool room with a very comfortable king bed was priced less than most other rooms in the area. The housekeeping staff was exceptionally friendly, but the front desk staff was ""surly"". The room was clean but did have a lingering smoke smell. We would definitely go back!

Nice Place to Stay

We stayed at the Comfort Inn in Cortland and had a very good nights stay. The beds were very comfortable and the room was very clean. The staff was helpfull with directions. The free breakfast was good. We also had dinner at the Denny's next door which was convenient.

i think we had bedbugs

i came home with a row of 3 bites on my stomach. i looked up bedbugs online, and the internet did seem to suggest they are common in hotels, and they leave a row of 2-4 long-lasting bites. fortunately, so far it appears that i did not take any home with me, but just be warned.
