Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ottawashopper Disturbed by other guests
We arrived at the hotel around 9:30pm after a long day of shopping. Our room was great, and clean. Unfortunately, there must have been a wedding closeby because we heard a lot of noise around 1:50am... There was even a guest that started knocking on doors and woke us up! (I assume he thought it was someone from his group that was in our room). The walls are pretty thin so we heard them talking in the hallway and in their rooms for a while... eventually, I called downstairs and complained... they apologized and said that they would take care of it right away... they came up but the party started to quiet down at the same time...
Difficult to judge the hotel because we had such a lousy sleep but I imagine it wasn`t necessarily due to the hotel itself... all I have to say is that if you are a light sleeper, better hope that the other guests don't make too much noise...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wjcs As Good As It Gets; Couldn't be any better.
I stay here which is 22 miles from my destination where I have to Officiate at a Competition. I am up at 5 AM everyday of my stay and have ample time to eat a great hot breakfast, from eggs, pancakes, toast, yogurt, cereal, fruit, juices, milk, coffee, etc, etc.
I have dinner at a great restaurant only 5 or 6 miles from the hotel, called Daniella's, which is housed in the Best Western Motel which is probably fine but I prefer this Holiday Inn Express. My rooms come with a Micro & Refrig which come in handy for all sorts of reasons. Leftover restaurant food, ice cream etc, etc.
My other option is anotherf Holiday Inn in Auburn only 7 miles from my destination which has within a great Irish Restaurant. Yet I prefer this Holiday Inn Express because every stay experience has been "As Good As It Gets"!
I highly recommend this facility for great comfort, quiet, cleanniness and very pleasant and helpful staff. Try it you won't regret your stay ever.

Great hotel. We used this hotel as a stopover on the way up north so it served our needs perfectly. The breakfast is awesome, so much variety, staff are super friendly and helpful. Great restaurant close by as well. Great all around.

Christine, Joe and Danielle are awesome! Always smiling and happy, willing to go that extra mile - saving some cookies when arriving late after dinner or opening the breakfast refrigerator at 5:30 am to have yogurt and cereal before leaving for work. I won't stay anywhere else when in Syracuse.

Check in was fast and staff was friendly. The gift bag provided to us at check-in was appreciated considering we had been driving for a while and could use a snack and beverage at that point.
My family and I found the property and room to be well furnished, clean, and comfortable. The staff was engaging and helpful, especially with information concerning transportation and dining options.
The complimentary breakfast is a real plus. The variety and quality of breakfast choices was typical of other HIE locations. I personally would like to see an improvement in the quality and options in the hot food choices, but realize costs limit what can be offered as a complimentary service. Overall, considering what is paid for the stay, I see it as a good value.
The pool and hot tub, like the facilities as a whole, was well maintained.
We appreciate the efforts to reduce energy costs, but both my wife and I thought the level of lighting in the bathrooms could be improved.
We found the hotel a bit difficult to find from the Interstate. The hotel and guests would really benefit from some signage from Rt 690 to direct guests to the property.
We would definitely stay here again.

This hotel was very nice and clean the staff were very accommodating and helpful. The pool and hot Tub were nice added features for our kids. Take advantage of the shuttle service if able it was a amazing savings in time and money. Breakfast was good, pancake maker was not working : ( and no gluten free options for my husband but those were the only 2 downfalls. Thank You for the awesome stay!

My family and I had another super stay at the Syracuse Fairgrounds Holiday Inn. I would especially like to thank Christine, the Assistance General Manager, for all her assistance in making our stay both possible and memorable. We will definitely be back in the near future.

I was glad we had a GPS. For being so close to everything it was off the beaten path. I was met by a desk clerk that was probably the friendliest and most helpful young lady. She made my day. If you have clerks to train, have them work with her for a few days.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RebaFan2013 Enjoyed our stay
Although we only stayed one night to enjoy the State Fair this was a very nice experience, we were earlier than the check in time, no problem. We were later than the expected time for breakfast, again no problem. Rooms were spacious and very clean, loved that the doors had soft closers, so you didn't hear any of the normal bang/bang when people were coming and going. Used the shuttle to go back and forth to the fair, the only disappointment was with the shuttle at the end of the night and this is not the hotels fault, it is pure volume. It is going to take a while to get everyone out, had I realized just how long that was going to be, I would have taken the cab sooner. So my suggestion would be to tell clients that unless they are o.k. to wait 90mins plus, the $20.00 cab ride is worth it.

Even with GPS very difficult to find since there are no visable signs.
When I checked in the evening of August 5
Nobody was there to greet me. Front desk did not recognized me as a PLATINUM Member . No gift basket nothing. When I went to room I noticed some trash and there was no shampoo.
There were no towels in the swimming pool which was ice cold.
Hot tub was luke warm.
Ran out rolls and biscuits for breakfast. Eggs were cold.
Maid service was extremely poor . Maids never empty trash and beds were not properly made. I felt they were understaffed and very poorly managed . I have been a Platinum member since 1985 and
Kemmons Wilson would have been very disappointed !

This was one of the best Holiday Inns I have stayed at.
We checked in at 2am and the gentleman at the Front Desk could not have been more pleasant.
I was greeted with a smile and an attentive staff member.
The breakfast was delicious and all the staff members I spoke with were wonderful.
I will definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.
Thank you Holiday Inn Express.
(PS - I got my rice!)

We had an excellent time while we were there. The rooms were nice and clean. The bed was one of the more comfortable beds I have slept in , in a hotel. The pool was great, did wish it was a little bit warmer, and the matting that was on the floor to prevent slipping was very rough on the feet, but still very relaxing experience!

This hotel is excellent to run away from a day of work. It is quiet and secluded. The location is near everything but away from congestion. If you have an event at the fairgrounds, you definitely want to look for this hotel for a great rest.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Roadtrip66 Hard to find but worth it.
We were driving through from Boston to Detroit and stopped for the night. The exit recommended for the directions was closed, so it took us awhile to find it. The staff were extremely helpful and kind, especially the lady who serves breakfast. The breakfast was a bit nicer than expected. The beds were just ok. However the hotel was very appropriate for the price range. I would stay again.

Set in a field filled with wildflowers this motel is certainly different from most. We also like to be able to walk to the Quaker Steak and Lube restaurant and use the 10% discount that the hotel offered there.

The 1st night for our Grandson sleeping on a cot was not comfortable but for the next 2 nights we went to a room with 2 queen beds that were very. Comfortable. The rest of the stay was great. Judy at the front desk was a delight.

This hotel is nestled in a country side and maintained well. The room was clean with a comfortable bed. A complimentary breakfast was offered with many things to choose from. I especially loved the fresh fruit and my kids enjoyed the pancakes which are made to order from a pancake machine that spits out nice size pancakes in about a minute, without any mess, you do not have to pour the batter in. Check in and out was easy. Would definitely stay here again. Added bonus was a Quaker Steak & Lube Restaurant right next door to the hotel. I walked there and enjoyed a good meal for a fair price.

Lovely hotel not far from the interstate. There was a nice family restaurant in walking distance. The only downside was that the airconditioning wasn't working in the Exercise Room. The staff did their best to try to fix it--Joni went and dug out a fan to make it a better experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Teeluna Great Hotel!
While overall my room was excellent, there were a few things that I would like to note:
overhead light in bathroom was out and should have been replaced before I received the room.
no phone in the room, except in the bathroom. but I walked to the front desk for what I needed.
the room was a handicapped room, but I did not ask for a handicapped room. Unless this room was the only one left, another room that was not handicapped should have been assigned leaving that room open for someone who was handicapped.
Pancake machine broken Sunday morning.
