I've been travelling for the last 30 years, and we notice the change for the best at Holiday Inn Express. We love the staff every place we've been and the comfort of the rooms. The price a little more than what I like to pay but for what you get Holiday Inn Express pretty special. Hope everyone has a great experience.

Staff is wonderful!!!! There's always smiling faces welcoming you and willing to assist you...breakfast is always out on time..Maybe a few more facial tissues in the bathroom would be nice :)

My son and I were on a college tour week long trip. We had just come from a Holiday Inn Express near University at Albany. Our only issue with this Holiday Inn Express was that we could not order current movies to pass the time as we could at the other location.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mmankow Great Stopping Point
This Holiday Inn is right off the highway, so if you need easy access - they have it. The hotel looks like it is brand new and everything was spotless. We asked for additional sheets and towels and were responded to with a smile. Breakfast on Sunday was a bit hectic with all the guests, but we were able to land a table after a short wait.
Overall a good value for the price.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dagati Misrepresentation
I originally booked 3 rooms under a non-refundable rate. When I found out that I would only need 2 rooms the night of arrival. I called and spoke to the front desk. The clerk said that she could not refund. I started looking for someone else to take my room. When my daughter arrived at 3pm the clerk said that she would be able to cancel the room at no charge because she could resell it. This was great! Our rooms were not ready so we checked in later that night. I checked my credit card statement and we were actually charged for the 3 nights. The General Manager was no help, she said her owners would not allow her to refund us and it didn't matter if the clerk said she cancelled it because she was not allowed to say this. The problem is she did say this and we were not expecting to have to pay for the third room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jennifer 1234 Wonderful
We had been travelling all day, saw this hotel and were able to book a room. We could not believe, how wonderful the staff were, how clean the hotel was and overall how it felt that we were among family. We had been staying at holiday inns our entire week and this one by far was the best. We would recommend this hotel in a heart beat. Please keep up the great work there. I really liked and I wish I could remember her name, walked around the breakfast area....having conversations with the guest and offering the use of her knowledge of the area. Keep up the good work.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by groovydavy Fine for a night…but...
Extremely clean, friendly, quiet. I only wish I could sleep on a mattress other than memory foam. Didn't sleep a wink. But the bed is probably very comfortable for people who don't suffer from a bad back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bob143 Great staff, top to bottom
Thanks for a wonderful stay. We received nothing but polite and accurate help from the staff. We were on a tight schedule to make it to a family wedding and they helped with good directions and made sure that we got our room as fast as possible. Great access from the highway and plenty or services nearby. I certainly will stay there again.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn because we exchanged Holiday Inn Resort points for IHG points and the hotel in Cortland was the closest to Ithaca. It was conveniently located off the highway and on the route to Cornell. Would stay there again.

The property is very nice and breakfast was quite good, but the bathroom drains were slow and there were NO towel racks...odd situation when trying to conserve laundry and re-use towels!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JamesW43 Brand New Hotel in Beautiful Location
I was visiting the Holiday Inn Express - Cortland NY with my family due to a college tour at Cornell University the next day. We enjoyed beautiful views of the Catskills mountain region on the drive to the hotel. Everything about the hotel was in brand new condition. Our room was lovely and very clean. It had all of the features we look for in a hotel (free continental breakfast, indoor pool, nice location, fitness center, comfortable beds, refrigerator in the room, etc.). The staff were very friendly, especially the housekeeping staff who provided extra shampoo and towels, and had the rooms immaculately clean. We hope to visit the area again soon, and we will definitely stay at this hotel again when we do. Thank you for such a wonderful visit!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CK08 Most unprofessional general manager ever
I came to the Holiday Inn Express in Courtland because of a job that I was training a crew on. Arrived night before job and the bed was great, clean room, a typical Holiday Inn.
The job was moved to Ithaca last minute so I did not want to do a 30 minute drive every morning. I had already booked my stay for 3 nights so I requested that I could be let out of the remaining nights at no charge. I know this is not company policy but I have asked before at other hotels and it is usually not an issue. If they would have said no, I would have stayed at the hotel and had a longer commute in the morning. When I made this request at the front desk they said they would run it past the general manager in the morning. I left with another employee early in the morning and then came back to the hotel when the general manager was in. When I returned we inquired at the front desk and the general manager came out around the desk and was very confrontational from the start. She yelled and made a huge deal about how this was horrible and then instructed her employee to "get them both out of here now". She then proceed to make it a well known point how "she" was giving us hundreds of dollars and how appreciative we should be and how much of a problem that we were being for her. We remained polite and civil as she kind of had us at her mercy as we really wanted to change hotels. I informed her of my intent to complain about how she treated us and she did not care.
I am a platinum member and stay over 100 nights per year in holiday inn hotels and I can say with all honesty that she is the most rude, most unprofessional, most negative person I have ever met at any holiday inn, or any hotel chain ever....in all my years traveling....EVER.
I will say that the other front desk employees were very nice and civil and what you would expect from Holiday Inn. Unfortunately because of the general manager I will NEVER stay at this hotel ever again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Huang927 Great bargain
I had to drop my sister off at Cornell University at 8AM the next day. I decided to stay here because I love IHG and it was the closest one to the school! Also, the price was great. Seriously just checked-in (arrived 12AM), slept, ate breakfast and checked-out! (7AM). The bed and pillows were super comfy and only having slept for 6hours, I woke up feeling very rested. We also took advantage of the free breakfast and it was delicious!
