Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jenny809 Great stay!
Hotel was clean and comfortable, pool was nice (although the 'lifeguard' couldn't have looked any more disinterested). Staff were very friendly, especially our restaurant server. We will definitely stay here every time we're in Syracuse.

I found the room terrible, smallest bathroom I have ever seen , no microwave or refrigerator, when that night I asked for a bottle of water I was told the vending machine was around the Conner.
I will be traveling 4 to 5 times a year for several days at a time over the next few months, I will not be staying there again.
I stay at Holidays inns all over and my company has a lot of other people that do the same.
I was very unempressed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nittany87 Worst Holiday Experience Ever
My husband is a Platinum level member and always uses Holiday Inn when he travels for work so we used points for a 2 night stay to look at colleges. Upon checking in we learned a Christian Fellowship Conference had booked the first 3 floors but we were assigned a room on the 5th floor. The lobby was extremely loud with young adults/teenagers everywhere. When we got to the 4th floor we found groups sitting in the hallway. As we walked down the hallway we actually had to step over legs as they were sitting across the hallway. Carrying our luggage we passed this group 4 times bringing items from the car. We encouraged them to move but no luck. The next day we informed the front desk. They told us they did not have enough meeting space for the group but they were not to be on the 5th floor. When we came back later in the afternoon 2 new groups were now camped out on the. 5th floor. They were running in the hallways at night. Went to use the heated pool but it was cold. This was a horrible experience. We ended up speaking to the front desk multiple times as did other visitors. The hotel was obviously overloaded and overwhelmed and a change could not be achieved.

Our stay was pleasant. The only downer was the extremely SMALL bathroom. It was hard to get around even with 1 person using it! Otherwise staff was helpful and overall stay was fine.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Crix02 Stained Leaky Toliet
My husband & I were in town for the Syracuse game and made a same day reservation therefore our choices were very limited. We did late check in and left right after breakfast the following morning so our experience was very limited.The back of our toliet had some type of brown stain, flushed so loud that it woke my husband when I used it at night & by the morning the handle was leaking.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by apnyc great front desk service not so great room
The room had flies!!!! Not one or two. But at least 10 of the annoying ugly things. I called the maintaince office and they said they will take care of it but needless to say nothing was done. I had to spend the night swatting flies that night. The bed was lumpy and painful. The cleaning crew walked into the room the following morning at 8 am to clean. Did I mention I was getting ready!!!! Though she apologized but still 8am???? The following day same thing when check out wasn't till 12noon.
I wouldn't recommend this hotel is you have other options.
Though i must complement the friendly and helpful font desk crew. They were willing to do almost anything to help. Shuttle service to all places and back. Late checkout. They mad the 2 night stay worth the trouble.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by travelrn1 OK if you are small
Just back from a three day educational conference at the Holiday Inn Liverpool, NY
Room: Started off on the wrong foot when I could not get the key card to work in the lock. After multiple attempts, a housekeeper came to the rescue. Neither key card worked correctly, and it took multiple attempts every time before the lock would work and let me into my room (did not matter what key card I used).
I had a room with two double beds. The room also contained a TV stand, a small desk and desk chair, and a lounge chair with ottoman. WiFi is provided free in all rooms and conference areas. While there was enough room for me, a larger person, or someone with assistive devices or wheelchair might have found it challenging. The room was immaculately clean. Smoking is not allowed inside the hotel which was a definite positive for me. There is a coffee maker, but no tea bags were provided. As I do not drink coffee, this was a negative for me. The walls are not particularly thick, and I was awakened several times during the night when loud (as in drunk) persons came down the hall talking, and some ended up in the room next to mine.
The bathroom was incredibly small! The toilet is angled from one corner so that the door will close. I am quite small, and there was barely room for me to turn around (literally) in the bathroom. Conversations with my colleagues indicated that the bathroom was pretty standard, and the larger individuals among us were VERY unhappy with the arrangement. There is NO WAY someone with an assistive device or a wheelchair would even be able to get into the bathroom. Luckily I was staying by myself, because I cannot imagine more than one person was trying to get ready in the morning! There is no outlet by the only mirror outside of the bathroom, and only one (small) person can stand and use the mirror in the cramped bathroom. Four people in this room (given the room and the bathroom size) would be tripping over each other, and getting ready for bed, or to go somewhere would be a logistical nightmare.
Restaurant: Many of us ate at least one evening in the hotel restaurant. Prices are very reasonable for the size of the portion. Companion 1 had the fried haddock and French fries, which also came with a reasonable salad. The haddock was at least a ½ pound fillet, nicely cooked. Companion 2 had a burger (looked to be about 1/3 pound). The burger was cooked as ordered (medium rare), and was declared to be quite tasty. Companion 3 had French Onion Soup. It was presented in a medium size crock with a heavy topping of melted cheese and bread. As I was not very hungry, I ordered the appetizer of fried calamari as my meal. It was a very large portion, with nicely fried rings and tentacles served with both cocktail and tartar sauce. As an appetizer it would have easily served 3 or 4; as a meal I could only finish about 2/3s of the dish. Quite the bargain at $8.99. The wait staff was attentive without being over bearing.
Cons: On the last day of the stay check out was at 11 AM. Management knew that I was participating in the educational conference (there was a conference rate and one had to state with the reservation that they were attending the conference), and that the time of 10:30AM to 11 AM had been set aside for participants to check out. After attending an early morning presentation, I returned to my room to find that it had already been stripped and cleaned. Regrettably that “stripping” included some jewelry that was on the bedside stand. I was able to track down the housekeeper in another room, and when confronted she did produce the jewelry from her pocket. Perhaps she had it there for safe keeping until she could put it in lost and found – one can only hope. However, IMHO, it is not reasonable for the housekeeping staff to clean and strip a room when the occupant has not yet checked out.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pamet Great to have free wi fi in my room!
They stay was fine, but adding a third night to my 2-night reservation seemed to cause some snafu's.
Two days before I left for Syracuse I added a third night to my existing 2 night reservation. The first two nights went smoothly but later in the day after the 2nd night, my room key no longer worked and I had to get another. Not a big deal. But I also discovered later that day that though the maid had made my bed, she had not cleaned up used towels, nor replenished used soap and shampoos, nor coffee, coffee supplies and cups. Somewhere there was a disconnect in my reservations that probably for future travelers should be corrected.
Otherwise, the stay was fine, location convenient, clean, okay. though nothing unusual, except the free wifi all over the hotel counts for a lot, and makes the motel special. Thank you.

Nothing thrilling. The mattresses were encased in a plastic cover, making for a bit of noise throughout the night. Bathroom was incredibly small. Room overall was clean and as expected, and staff was pleasant. The swimming pool was FREEZING. We were assured it was 85deg, but the kids lips were blue after five minutes. Average hotel.

My husband and I stayed there because the location was so close to our visitation meetings. When we arrived there was a little problem with our reservation but the owner himself immediately was very helpful and resolved the issue in seconds. The stay was great and the breakfast was very good for a continental breakfast. I just wish we where able to enjoy the pool area after our meetings but unfortunately it was closed by the time we came back to the room. I would use this hotel again for our next trip in the area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Peeps62 Got in late, didn't feel the usual welcome
We were heading home and weren't sure how far we'd be able to go, so made last-minute reservations. Came in with flight crews and felt like we were in the way at the desk. Felt that way at the hotel restaurant in the morning, too - and we were the only ones in there!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Eleni1964 Shopping Expidition
My friend and I stayed at this property for a Syracuse shopping expedition. We booked the hotel because I have stayed here before and like the location.
Pros: It is located in a safe area for women traveling alone and it's proximity to the highway and other venues cannot be beat. The staff is friendly and helpful always. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Great shuttle for anywhere within a 3 mile radius.
Cons: Restaurant breakfast is average at best. Pool is only open until 10PM; most nights we didn't get in until 9:30-10:00 - it would have been great to have an hour for a swim. Some of the facility needs upgrading (i.e. door knobs).
Still-the Pros outweighed the Cons and we enjoyed our stay.

Average hotel, clean, this was the first time i stayed in a Holiday inn where the breakfast was not included, there was a charge of 10.95 per person for breakfast . We went down the road to a Denny"s for 4.95$ per person and were satisfied. Also tea and coffee not available in the lobby.

At 10 pm during fair week without a reservation we were glad to find a room. Room was good size, bathroom rather small. Bed comfortable and room clean. As I've found in several other Holiday Inns around the country the walls seem to be thin, not soundproof.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Chris24 Unfortunate Stay
I have never felt so uncomfortable and nervous at a Holiday Inn ever before. The first night I was there another guest walked into my room by using his room key at 11pm. Thankfully I was awake and watching television as I was startled and in shock as I guess he received the same room key at check-in. I couldn’t believe this happened as I typically keep my laptop and other belongings in my room. I reported this to the staff and they apologized and they informed me someone would give me a call but I never received one.
As a frequent traveler, I have grown to enjoy staying at Holiday inn as well as other IHG hotel places. I hope this doesn’t become a trend or I will have to consider switching to other hotel brands.

Stayed 2 nights at Holiday Inn, we are pleased with overall service provided by the staffs, house-keeping and dinning staffs.
except the foods at the restaurant. I had The Apple Walnut Chicken with grenadine sauce and vegetables to go along with were over-cooked and not freshed. The broccoli were Yellow and not sure how long it was kept in the freezer.
We will definitely stay at Holiday Inn again but not to dine at the restaurant if given the option.

I had a great experience at this Holiday Inn. The location was easily accessible from the highway. Staff were very friendly. My room and furnishings were very clean. The room was spacious and the very quite - I felt like I was at home. I did not feel boxed in. I am a Priority Club member and the 50% discount on dinner at the hotel restaurant was greatly appreciated. I will definitely return to this hotel in the future. Thank you - keep up the good work.

The room was clean and the beds comfortable. THe bathroom had too little counter space to comfortably prep for the day. We only had breakfast in the restaurant and it was subpar. The potatoes tasted freezer burned and the coffee was not very good. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Over all a good experience but stopped eating in the restaurant.
