The rooms were not what we expected. We've stayed in other Holiday Inns before, and they were nice looking and bigger. It was kind of staying at a motel. There was lots of noise on the streets from people partying and being loud. It was a nice stay because we relaxed and had a place to stay. The bar was awesome and its staff amazing!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MsrBiggs Not what I expect from Holiday Inn hotels
When I arrived, I was greeted with a smile and offered a complimentary beverage at the bar for being a platinum member. From there it was downhill... I went directly to the bar, thinking that after a long day I might enjoy a glass of wine before going to bed. However, after several minutes standing at the bar, no one took my order. I was tired, so I went to bed. There was a noise while I was trying to sleep that sounded like something nocking around in a clothes dryer. I was annoyed, but tired enough I was able to get to sleep. The next morning after showering and brushing my teeth, I noticed the drain in the sink did not drain. I fidgeted with it for a while until I was able to pull the stopper out. I finished getting ready and went downstairs for breakfast. After 15 minutes, I was finally able to get some coffee. After 20 more (35 total at this point) I was able to order. Another 30 minutes later, with no food, I had to get up and leave to make my meeting on time. I thought I could at least get a cup of coffee at the coffee pots near the exit, but they were all (3) empty.
I travel a lot for work, and some for leisure. I try to stay within the Priority club family of hotels in order to consolidate my points. However, the next time I'm called to Binghamton, I will likely stay elsewhere.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Linda255 Heating System not working well!
During my stay the weather went from Average November to Snow and freezing cold. The temp in my room, no matter what I did with the thermostat, stayed @ 68 degrees, which is normally fine. Saturday afternoon the temperature dropped significantly with snow showers and wind. Saturday evening my room was @ 65, still not much of a problem and good for sleeping. Around 3am I woke up cold, the room was freezing and I had to double the comforter for warmth. I got up @ 6am to a freezing room. The thermostat registered 50 because that was the lowest mark. I had to run the shower hot and the hair dryer to create enough heat in the bathroom so I could get dressesd. I went to the front desk @ 6:45 and they said they would send someone to fix the heat. By the time I got back to my room @ 11am to pack-up the thermostat had only reached 56 degrees. When I checked out, I requested a discount on my room and the Front Desk Clerk took off $50. In hind-sight, I should have realized there would be a problem and asked Saturday evening to be moved to a new room where the heat was working.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Fred5 Bed and pillow uncomfortable
The mattress was uneven, the sheets were to small for the bed and must have been very old, they wrinkled up under you, and became uncomfortable.
The pillows were very large and hard. (Personal needs)
The tempature was hard to control, either to hot or cold.
The good part..
We had a suite with two rooms, living room and bedroom, we also had two full baths.
We felt very safe in the area and there were lots of resturants in the area.
The hotel was clean for the most part, but a little over priced for the off season.
There was no continental breakfast, but the resturant did provide three meals a day at a cost, and had coffee out around 6:00.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GBart Overall Nice Hotel
Nice hotel, very nice front desk and bar staff. A little of a pain in the neck to park there with security guard was stopping each car as it enters lot to check for parking pass. Maid service was excellent on 3 out of 4 days but did not clean he room very well one day even though I left a generous daily tip for maid service.
The room was average size, very comfortable bed, nice sized desk, decent sized flat panel TV (wish they had the Sci-Fi channel). Room was somewhat noisy on second night which was very windy. Whistling noise coming in through window, almost all night long, from the wind (that needs to be fixed). Shower diverter did not divert all water from downspout to shower head so shower was on weak side. Free Wi-Fi. Free use of business center. They also have a gym and indoor pool. Nice bar. Overall, hotel was very clean. Never was given a bill at check-out, and I did return room key-cards to front desk but shame on me, I forgot to ask for bill.
All in all a pretty nice experience, I will stay there again. I have to reiterate, the front desk and bar staff were excellent - courteous, professional, helpful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kiki1102 Great Room and nice staff
I was pleasantly surprised to find a rather large mini fridge and microwave in our room (both were extremely useful during the stay) and the staff was always kind, courteous and helpful in addressing various requests. The hotel is also in a great location (easy to walk to nearby restaurants/bars/entertainment/etc.) and we had a view of the river nearby from our room. Everything was nice and clean upon arrival.

Great Location and Wonderful Staff
As Platinum IHG Member and Diamond HH I certainly travel my fair share and to frequent travelers it is not so important how dated some of the rooms are, but how you are treated and welcomed to a Hotel. Even though it was my first time staying at this particular IHG Hotel I was welcomed just like I have been there a 1000 times before…..well done!
However the Restaurant food quality left much to be desired, however the service once more made up for it. But I definitely will not be eating there if it is more important for the kitchen manager to hang around the bar, rather than focusing on the food which left the kitchen, which at this day could have not been more than 10 covers.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CADDAD Loud room and tight quarters in a standard room.
My wife and I needed a place to stay overnight after a wedding. The wedding was near by and most of my family was staying at another local hotel. We opted for this hotel to save some money.
The room was a standard room with a king sized bed. It felt very cramped with almost no room to move around. The thermostat fell off the wall when we turned the air conditioning on to cool the room! We dropped our bags and headed to the wedding.
It was extraordinarily loud in the room next to us later that night. The walls seemed almost paper thin and we could hear everything going on in the room next to us when the guests loudly returned at around 1 a.m. bringing whatever party they were just at with them. (Granted we had an adjoining room and most of the noise seemed to be coming from the adjoining door area.) It was loud enough that it woke us up and then prohibited us from going back to sleep.
The next morning we decided to try and use the coffee maker in the room before heading out. We were desperate for a GOOD cup of coffee and were let down in a big way. The coffee maker is a tease!
We didn't stay long enough to try any of the amenities on property. We had very limited interaction with the staff, so no comment there.
I gave a three stars, average, rating because that is exactly what our experience was, average. Nothing special, no pleasant surprises; just an average hotel room for a decent price. I kind of wished we'd paid the little extra and stayed at the hotel up the street with our family. They seemed to have a better experience.

Overall the hotel was good. We had challenges eating breakfast 1 morning. 35 minute wait for pancakes and eggs and once the food finally arrived it was cold. We left and went to local diner.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NYProf Fine Conference Hotel
At the end of September, spent two nights attending a conference at Binghamton's Holiday Inn. Although the room was near the elevator on the 7th floor, it was quite quiet. I especially enjoyed the high-quality towels and comfortable bed. Food at the conference was very good, except for rather dry breakfast potatoes. I highly recommend this hotel if you are visiting Binghamton.

The hotel is a bit old and could use some updating but overall, our stay was comfortable. We were traveling in a group of 11 motorcycles and I was glad we all had a club card so we could park closer to the hotel. The highlight of our stay was the staff at the bar and restaurant. Our bartender was fabulous and the drinks were perfect. Our dinner servers and our breakfast servers were responsive to our needs and took great care of us. I would also like to mention that the breakfast cook served up one heck of a great breakfast! We would stay at this hotel again thanks to the exceptional customer service offered by all these fine folks.

The mattress was hard, and the room was small.
Price was to high even though there was not breakfast included.
Restaurant was out of tap beer. All 4 taps were dry. Bottle beer was expensive.
Great location to visit other drinking and eating establishments.

One of the best downtown hotels that I have stayed at. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Parking was very close to hotel entrance.
The only problem was that I hadn't book this hotel for more nites. I will be staying here again.

This Holiday Inn is located in downtown Bingamton. All aspects of our stay were good. It was a treat to dine outdoors and watch the ducks on the rapidly flowing river. You would be especially lucky if you were aserved by Sabrina - a knowledgeable and caring staff person.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by rbrn You are now entering the Twilight Zone....
When my husband and I walked into ths 8 story hotel we were blown away.We had looked forward to our 2 night stay. Plush lobby with gorgeous furnishings. Botique shops located within. After we left the elevator the horror story began. Our executive King room had a 3 foot by 3 foot open area!! The bathroom was the size of a phone booth--with a toilet that flushed like a jet engine. You could hear the toilets flushing in the surrounding rooms!!!! Dinner was a disaster. I ordered the beer battered fish fry--I kid you not--I was presented with Van de Camps frozen fish with a crumb topping--2 triangles that did not resemble fish. The waiter did not bring my salad--and I had to ask for tarter sauce. Never got the salad!!!! I had very high expectations for this hotel but this was insane. We had intended to have our grand daughters visit us, but when you have to sit on the bed to open the mini fridge-no way.I will say that the staff were friendly....We were not recognized as Rewards Club members.... Sorry Holiday Inn I really wanted to like you!!!!

Rooms were reasonably priced for the quality.
The 'free' breakfast was not as nice as expected. The free breakfast was actually $20 credit for breakfast. Since there were 3 of us, they charged us $9.95 for my son to eat a bagel with cream cheese from the buffet.

Good room and dining accomodations, coupled with great staff and some new twists (the Outdoor Barbeque Dinner offered this past weekend was excellent!) make this the place to stay when I come back to my home town.
I stay her every couple of weeks; for me this property offers the best in the Binghamton area as far as comfort, convenience, customer service and value.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pai19 Great Location
Overall my stay wasn't bad. The people that worked the front desk were friendly and helpful and the location was great the reason for the visit. The only complaints I have is that my room smelled like a dog had stayed there right before me, which since it is a 'pet friendly' hotel, it must have. If the hotel is going to allow animals than it has to have a better way to clean the rooms between guests or designate animal rooms for only those people who stay with animals. I was there for one night so it wasn't a huge issue but to open the door and have that odor is not a pleasant experience or stay.
I also requested a king bed (and it was months in advanced) but ended up with a room that had two doubles.
