Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Maddie54 A little out of the way - but worth the extra effort!
This hotel sits away from most of Syracuse, however, the service, the room, everything was excellent!

Our stay was very nice. The room was clean and the breakfast offered a nice varity. The only complaint I would have is the pillows were not very good. Too used. Difficult to find. No sign and the weeds were overgrown.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by frostydg Not a typical HI Express
I'm not sure where to begin, as I have always made HI Express my number one hotel, due to it's consistent properties wherever I travel. My son and I stayed here as a halfway point to Niagara Falls, and the reviews seemed good. I'll start with the positives - quiet location (a bit out of the way, which was OK), clean facility/room, and comfortable beds. We did have an adjoining room, with a snoring neighbor, so try to avoid that type of room if possible. The main issue I had was with the morning breakfast, which has always been a good experience. First of all, they ran out of eggs, as well as cinnamon buns, and the remaining selections were very sparse - not many muffins, bagels or bread, and I do not believe there was any fruit. Secondly, we were very surprised when 5 of the workman/landscapers came barreling in the front door, and were allowed to eat from the breakfast buffet. They pretty much decimated the remaining food, which I felt was extremely unfair to the paying guests. I've never seen that happen at any other HI Express. Lastly, when they ran out of knives, one of the staff members took out a box from under the counter, and one of the workman reached his hand in the box, and restocked the empty jar on the breakfast counter! I was very unhappy about that, since I did not see any of them wash their hands after coming in the front entrance. I strongly believe that the breakfast buffet should only be for the paying guests, and outside workers should not be allowed to eat from that area. I've worked in similar situations, and the workers were always fed in another area. As a loyal HI Express Priority Club member, I certainly hope the management makes some changes based on this review, although I will most likely not stay here again on my next trip through the area. If you do stay here, my suggestion would be to go somewhere outside of the hotel for breakfast.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 In the middle of nowhere.
The hotel and staff are nice and friendly. The location is horrible. The hotel is in the middle of no where. Staying in the swamp land type grass is not my ideal location. Only one restaurant is close by, for others you have to drive a few miles. Make sure you bring your GPS along.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Shopping Gals First getaway in years
We decided to go by recommendation on a local group chat. The hotel was very noisy, we heard our neighbours walking in the middle of the night, it shook our beds! When we went for breakfast at 830 the first morning there was hardly anything left! No eggs, no bread, no oatmeal! Disappointed. My biggest issue was the final night. We were the last in the pool area when they locked up at 10 and first to go in the morning. My daughter left her goggles there and when we went first thing in the morning (staff had to let us in!) they were gone. Hmmm. Mentioned to front desk but nothing was recitfied. Dogs barking, kids screaming up and down the hallway. I am happy to have checked out. This place is WAY out of Syracuse Nothing around but grass.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carey65 Comfortable Room and Quiet
We had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel. It is truly in the middle of nowhere, but only 5 minutes from the NYS Thruway. It was very peaceful and the bedding was great. We would definitely stay here again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SS652 Good with an exception....
Holiday Inn is the place where i stay very frequently.. Love to stay in Holiday Inn Group hotels... But My recent 2 trips at this location are business trips and need internet. It is very bad Internet connection and asked the front desk to help. They said they will look into the matter, but no one turned up and it wasn't improved.... Other than this comfort, cleanliness and everything is great. This is the first place that i experienced like this...
