The best part of this hotel is the extremely friendly and professional staff. I stay in hotels 3-4 nights a week and love staying at this hotel during my travels to this area.

We stayed here from Friday thru Sunday for a horse show at the State Fairgrounds. The hotel is very nice and in a quiet area. We were not familiar with the area, so the hotel was a little hard to find. Did not use the pool or had breakfast. We were at the horse show very early and stayed very late.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chrisey great mostly
a few minor complaints, the bathtub was very dirty, housekeeping over look it MORE then once, breakfast was slim pickins, they filled it right after we made our plates, and my biggest complaint is no bathrooms any where near the pool, kind of a problem when my 5 and 3 year olds both had to go, it's a long walk all the way across the lobby.
the other guest that were in the pool area were not very respectful, but that's hardly the hotels fault

While the hotel is good overall, Its location in an industrial estate in the middle of nowhere leaves a lot to be desired.

23 of us descended on this hotel for a recent stay due to the death of our dad. The management team was really great allocating rooms at a reasonable price and making them available in a timely fashion; the rooms were well appointed; the beds were comfortable and the environment was restful and peaceful. What more one ask for at a time like this.

I have stayed here before. It is an excellent hotel, clean, comfortable, pleasant staff, great breakfast. Walkable restaurant. Not many people seem to know about it and it is not very inviting just because of the area surrounding it. It is in a undeveloped, warehouse area. However, easy access to NY state fairgrounds.

The facility was a pleasant surprise located by it's self in the country.
Also a surprise was the presents of only one trash receptacle in the room. Having spent four nights at a Holiday Express in Lexington KY. prior to arriving at this facility, I noted the breakfast food was exactly the same.The desk person did not comply with my need to have a taxi at Hotel (5:30 AM) day of departure.

I thoroughly enjoy this facility and always choose it because of all the features expected at a quality hotel but most of all because the staff here is outstanding. I have other choices but will travel extra miles to be here. Additionally there is a great Steak Restaurant only a few miles away, which is outstanding. I promise the best steaks and service are there. I could stay 10 miles closer to my destination at another Holiday Inn which is also a fine facility, but this one is above and beyond because of the staff.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by take5 Everything nice except breakfast experience.
I stay at HIE regularly and have stayed here previously. Everything was up to standard and enjoyable except the breakfast experience. One thing that is always reliable is the breakfast but in this case it was not.
On the morning of 4/26, we arrived for breakfast at 8:30. The place was completely empty of food. The staff that seemed to taking care of the area seemed disinterested and were more interested in talking to each other. They had no sense of urgency and didn't seem to care that people were arriving for breakfast and finding a poorly stocked area.The hot rolls were empty and when the finally brought them out the were solid as a rock and cold. All of the bananas were gone. Yogurt picked over. Coffee urns empty and removed from area, except for one. The Danish, rolls were gone. Condiments lacking. There were only 2 tables (occupied) that had salt and pepper- no packets found elsewhere. The area, was disheveled and need tidying.
The reason to write this as I know this is not the usual standard of HIE breakfast. The staff assigned to the area is usually attentive and keeping things stocked and well organized. I have encountered very friendly staff who are on the move. The staff here definitely were not attuned to your costumers needs.

We stay at this hotel when our travel team is playing in Syracuse. Staff are very pleasant and make your stay wonderful.
Chistine and her team at the front desk are always proactive to ensure you have everything you need and to ask how your stay is going. We recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area and it will be the only hotel we stay at when we're in the area because of the staff and accomodations.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sky1 Great spot, but watch room location
This was the 2nd time I've been at this hotel. It is wonderful for people who need to be at dog shows at the Fairgrounds -- close, and they're very pet friendly. However, this time I was given a room on the 2nd floor just next to the balcony which overhangs the lobby and breakfast area. Breakfast starts at 6:30 AM and people in the breakfast area can be very noisy. So, if you are not an early riser, ask for a room away from that area. Otherwise, the hotel is excellent, staff are very helpful and location is great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Big Cat Very Friendly atmosphere and comfortable environment !
I have stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions and every time, the staff and other guests are remarkable. Asst. manager Christine has a great personality and made my stay a pleasant one. They have a nice indoor pool and hot tub that is well maintained and a decent exercise room. Grounds are well maintained, and rooms are very clean. There is also a great place to grab a bite to eat that you can walk to. ( great chicken wings). Only negative is the computer room. Computers are slow and printers may or may not work all the time. Otherwise I definitely recommend. Bring the whole family.

We had to follow some dark and lonely roads to get to this place (I guess nothing happening at the Fairgrounds between Christmas and New Year's) but once we found it, it was a good oasis. We were impressed with the attentiveness of the staff--for instance, keeping tabs on all items during a fairly crowded breakfast, and changing the water in the hot tub. We found our room comfortable without turning on any heat all night (and were happy they hadn't pre-heated it before we arrived). The pool was just long enough for lap swimming.
