Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TiaN Comfy bed, great pool!
We always stay at the Holiday Inn Riverview (4-5 times a year) when visiting relatives in the area.
We are always very comfy and secure there!
Our room is always very clean!
The wonderful, huge indoor pool is our favorite thing about this hotel...we get a lot of use out of it during our stays!

I make a few trips to this area a year, and like this hotel for my stays. The rooms are always very clean, the beds are comfortable and large, controlling room temperature is very easy, the staff are very nice and helpful, and the pool is a great plus. My only suggestions would be (1) improving the quality of toiletries in the bathroom, and (2) improving the quality of the food in the restaurant. They are passable, and basically matches the prices. The waitstaff in the restaurant are very good and attentive and that counts for a lot for me.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DC2008ZR1 Not the best Holiday Inn Experience
Service in the Hotel Restaurant was poor, the food was not what I have experienced at the Holiday Inn in the past. The staff seemed severely overworked (I think this is a management problem), and the bed sagged badly to one side. I realize that this is not a five star hotel, but I do expect better (and have experienced better) at the Holiday Inn.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dada06 Nice breakfast
Overall, this hotel is good.
However, each room has a mosquito (we were booked four rooms). And there is an unpleasant smell.
The breakfast is good, not expensive, tastes good.

This is called the Riverview. My room was the parking lot view....not a problem because somebody has to. BUT a beautiful river in the back of the hotel has NO benches to sit on to view the river. There were two picnic tables at the side of the hotel that were clearly for smoking employees. So I could not use. It was a gorgeous first day of summer and I could not sit and watch the river go by. Other than that, very friendly staff and typical Holiday Inn accommodations.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by candkwed A few things
Stayed with great friends so these small issues didn't seem to impact my stay.
The waitress seemed really put out by us. Yes, we were a large/loud table but she actually made us feel uncomfortable to ask for anything. We tipped her very well. Last February when I stayed at the hotel with only three of us at breakfast she behaved the same way.
The air conditioning was unreliable.
The internet was difficult to connect to. Too many steps involved I thought.
Key stopped working.
The cost of breakfast should be included whether or not you are getting a $5 reduced rate.

I have been staying here for over 3 years. The staff have identified me by name for over two years. This is a home for me as I travel extensively. You will find Sheila is an excellent manager merely by the reception you receive from her staff. All staff members greet you with a smile and comment. I wish I could experience the same comfort level I feel here at the other properties I frequent.
I hope your experience is as pleasurable as mine.

If you are deciding where to stay in Elmira, this is a definite YES! Everything was extremely clean in the room/bathroom. Beds are comfortable. The staff at the Front desk, Restaurant and Housekeeping was very friendly and also accommodating to our requests. Great customer service! One of the best Holiday Inn locations.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RobQ Room and breakfast were average
i filled in the survey, why am i required to do more. this survey is too long...
I paid $14 for breakfast that is included at most other hotels, like Holiday Inn Express. It took much longer to be served breakfast.
Not a good hotel for business travelers.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grandma of 13 Comfortable bed and clean rooms.
We enjoyed our stay. We were there for a Graduation at Elmira College. Everything was great but our breakfast experience. We waited for a table and service for over one hour. Apparently there were other functions going on that weekend. The restaurant should have had more wait staff. We finally sat at a table but no one came to offer us coffee for 30 minutes. We finally placed our order and items were missing. We had to be at graduation at 11AM but were not served our food until 10:15. We could not finish our breakfast. We arrived at the college at 10:50AM. If the hotel knows there are many functions going on that day, they should take reservations for breakfast or have more cooks and wait staff.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TDog11 Nice location on river and newer rooms
Rooms look like they were updated recently. View from room on back side to the river was very nice. Great place for a walk of fishing. Pool was basically normal size but decent. Breakfast in restaurant was average. The only issue was some drunk down the hall screaming at top of his lungs at about 1:00 AM. Thought I was hearing things but turns out he was literally in front of our friends door. Cops cuffed the guy and took him away. Next morning the clerk comped the room for them when she found out and said "that doesn't happen here." That's the right customer service and I'm sure that's not the norm here. I'd come back anytime.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KarenC23 Meets all our needs when going back home to visit
When going back home to visit relatives and friends we find that the Holiday Inn Elmira-Riverview meets all our needs from friendliness of the staff, easy reservations and check-in/check-out, excellent food in Anthonys Restaurant and the bar, and above all comfort throughout the facility.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KGilly Quiet, comfortable and clean
My room was very clean, the amenities were quite convenient, meeting my needs-- there were easy to reach light switches as I entered the room, outlets to charge my phone and computer easily accessible on the desk surface, wifi-- the password was supplied as I checked in, television was fine, beds and pillows were comfortable and the room was easy to access from the outdoors with convenient parking. The staff were friendly and personable. The restaurant on site was fine, just took a while for staff to realize I was there... there was no one at the front. The front desk staff were wonderful--giving me directions to my class site at check in,. They provided me a newspaper each morning. The room featured a microwave, mini-fridge and coffeemaker with complimentary coffee.The temperature was easy to adjust. What I would improve on is to provide actual glasses --the flimsy plastic cups were not very sturdy. All in all, I would recommend it. Other than the mournful winds outside my window, it was a wonderful stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 8103 Ask for a room in the back
The rooms that face the river have no parking lot noise, a plus for sleeping in. My only complaints were the late evening/early morning noise from the corridor, something not entirely under the control of the management, and a lack of outlets near the bed(s). These days everyone travels with a laptop and/or devices that need charging. Even a lamp with outlets in the base would improve things.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 12al only issue was finding the hotel
Everything was as we expected & was even surprisingly quiet considering the wine on ice event & the drunkards (myself included).
The only issue we had was our GPS tried to take us to 1 holiday Plaza / Holiday Inn Riverview - Elmira, NY - which does not exist.
Also - the 17/86 highway signage is very misleading as it tells you that the hotel is at the exit, shows a turn - but if you were to follow it - you will end up at 1st arena - not at the hotel - their should be a sign directing you to go straight thru after the exit & take the next right.
Since we are from the area, we knew those directions were bunk but, I imagine this property gets its fair share of upset travelers trying to find the hotel using either GPS or the 17/86 road signs

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Not great
I did not really enjoy my stay because the room was dry and when my friend and I got home she had bronchitis and I had a bad cold.
I feel that they need to work on the humidity levels and also cleanliness. I feel we wouldn't have gotten sick if the place was cleaner and disinfected better and had a humidifier to put moisture in the air. Plus it would be nice to have more water stocked in the fridge as well as hot tea with lemon and honey and throat lozenges or cough drops since it is so dry.

This was a "full-service" stay. Quiet, restful sleep allowed us to enjoy the pool and fitness center the next morning followed by a nutritional breakfast. Employees were friendly and polite. One of best motel stays we've had. Highly recommend to others visiting the area.
