Good bones and great possibility. This hotel has some good amenities, but many are not maintained well or kept updated. The pool area was sparse and a bit rundown. The landscaping was overgrown and full of weeds.The bed/bedding was very comfy and clean, but the room smelled musty when you entered. Kind of carpet didn't feel clean and the hallway carpeting was downright dirty.

NOT worth the money, Run Down!

Pros: Wasn't happy at all with the quality. The only thing that was good was the water pressure in the shower.
Cons: This hotel needs a major update and much better maintenance of existing conditions.
We chose this hotel based on its proximity to the colleges and paid a high price for the area. The hotel is very old and has not been updated in at least 25 years from what we could see. When we entered the room, you could smell mold covered up by deodorizer. The bathroom light fixture was out. The beds were uncomfortable and breakfast wasn't even included for the high rate. When we brought it to the attention of the staff, they seemed not to care nor did they offer to remedy anything we mentioned. Would NOT stay there ever again and will steer clear of ALL Ramadas based on the low level quality.

not far from Cornell University

Pros: Location
Cons: Cleaning and make rooms more pleasant.
Hotel was better when I stayed before last year. Now, we see that the facilities need a face lift. Room Furniture are old and not attractive. Bathroom have leaking water and look uncleaned. Cannot sleep because of constant noise from hallway and other rooms. Looks like a low cost motel. Too bad, we liked Ramada Hotels.

The hotel was very comfortable.

Pros: Free breakfast, Quiet
I was very pleased with the hotel. The room was attractive and very clean. The only drawback for us was the hotel location - it was on the other side of town than what we needed. For anyone looking for a place to stay towards Cornell or Cayuga Heights though, it would be an excellent choice.

The price was right

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet, non-smoking
Cons: no breakfast
This place was the least expensive hotel available around Cornell's campus and served its purpose. The staff was friendly and the hotel was warm. My only complaints are that the heating unit turned on & off all night & made a lot of noise and the internet went out on my last day there. I did appreciate that the entire building was non-smoking.

Would not stay again

Pros: Free Internet
rooms have wall-mounted heaters with no thermostat. Heat had apparently been on full blast all day before we arrived, so room was stifling and also very dry.
