"Well located hotel"
The hotel has recently been refurbished. The beds are very comfortable. The rooms were impeccably clean. Recommend that request be made for rooms on the back side of the hotel -- the front is on Water Street and traffic noise is annoying.Genuine Expedia guest review
Super!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Holiday Inn - Elmira"
Good, clean room. Heater makes an odd sound when turned on too high. Wish it had a complementary breakfast station, but other than that...good place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great hotel I highly recommend"
great job, nice hotel, staff was very friendly, they arranged a pickup at the airport even though my flight landed around 10 pm, they had no shuttle service so they paid for a taxi to pick us up. I would stay there again for sure.Genuine Expedia guest review
That past two times I stayed here, I got a non-smoking room and it reeked of stale smoke.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"A good location for a visit to Elmira College"
The hotel is well positioned for access to Elmira town centre and to Elmira College. The i86 is also very accessible from the hotel - leading to the Mall/Retail Park. The hotel still manages to be set in tranquil location by the river. It has a fitness room and an indoor pool, both of which I found to be great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Enjoyed every minute!"
We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 day stay in May 2013. The front desk readily answered any questions we had and went out of their way with maps and directions. We ate in the dining room every night (except Sunday night when meals were served only in the bar) and every meal we had was excellent. The flavours were amazing, the presentation appealing and the […] quantities were just right. The staff in the dining room were helpful with choices and very courteous. The cleaning staff were very friendly and the room was immaculate. The life guard was courteous and always present. Everything was very comfortable and we really enjoyed our stay. We typically started the day with a swim and then went for breakfast. We were out daily from 11-6 and then ate our meal, played some pool, watched TV, had a walk and retired around 12. The only thing that we would suggest is that our room's air conditioner was a little noisy but we did not tell the staff about it so they wouldn't have known about this.

"good stop off point"
A pleasant surprise to stay in such a comfortable hotel.The only criticisms would be:location isolated,no out lets[eg eating places or pubs within walking distance;band in bar on Saturday night was horrendously loud as it is only a small room preventing us from having our usual nightcap.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"A good stop in hotel"
08/28/14 travellingKC Piscataway, New Jersey
In my opinion, I think this hotel is a good hotel to stop in for a night. There really isn't anything around anyway. We stopped here on our way to Ithaca, NY for a night's rest. The breakfast is pretty cheap and pretty decent. There isn't much parking so prepare for a trek from your car to your room. It has all the basics that you'd need for a hotel. Actually, the room had a microwave which you don't often see in hotels nowadays. Just a clean, simple hotel to stop in for a night's rest.
"Overall good place to stay"
08/25/14 Laura O Cicero, Indiana, United States
My husband and I have stayed here twice while visiting family in the area. Both times have been a good experience with clean, comfortable rooms and free breakfast because we are IHG members. Staff has always been helpful and friendly. Only complaint is outdoor pool being closed and some areas need updating. Otherwise a pleasant and comfortable place to stay in the heart of Elmira!
08/23/14 Jeremy31Virgo Middlesex, New Jersey
This hotel is ideally located for the family we are trying to visit, the breakfast is as good as any local restaurant could be. We were given free breakfast as recently as our March visit but this time were told that is no longer the policy for rewards members. Even with free kid vouchers it still worked out to $30 per day with tip, and they overcharged us for breakfast which I caught on the last day and I believe they did adjust the previous days bills. I would not have booked this hotel knowing that the breakfast would not be free, I made this clear to the clerk at check-in. Not to be mean at all and the clerk understood. We checked in late after 8 and the room was hot in mid-August with the a/c off...not very welcoming from the heat outside. The bathroom was so hot until the next day being on the other end of the room from the a/c. The wi-fi internet had a real problem functioning for the first 24 hrs then it was fine. This was my first time using the indoor pool after 7 yrs of staying here. I took my 10 yr old son down there. They sell memberships to retired people who I think make the guests feel like they are unwanted. We went to the bathroom in the locker room after one old guy swam, his swim trunks were balled up inside out on the sink counter- he's lucky I didn't throw up all over them...gross! He probably does this every day. Then later I'm in the pool and a woman put's her stuff all over my saved chair (towels on top part of two chairs because bottoms were wet). My son went over to his chair and she says he could take the towel off her chair because she doesn't need it. It was my towel and my chair- RUDE! Then she jumps in the pool. The lifeguard, who was very nice, saw what was happening but didn't get involved as she has to see these other local people daily and probably doesn't want to upset them. I ended up needing to answer missed calls and had to leave before I could do anything else. I had no desire to ever visit the pool again on the trip. I had some back pain after sleeping here this time and I was awake at least every hour. I had felt better and slept better at another hotel near Rochester during this same vacation. The rooms themselves are nice enough and the staff is generally friendly and helpful.
"Clean, Lacking Comfort"
08/17/14 Greg S Albany, New York
The Holiday Inn Elmira Riverview has very well maintained and clean common areas, banquet halls, and reception area. In fact-it is actually quite well designed and decorated. There are plenty of amenities for such a small hotel including an on-site restaurant, pool and gym area. This is actually my second time staying at this particular hotel, and the first time my room was quite comfortable-so take what I am about to say with a grain of salt. The room I had during my stay this past month was not comfortable. The bed linens were scratchy, the air conditioner did not work, and the cleaning staff congregated outside of my room starting around 6 AM and were talking quite loudly. Since I was only here for one evening, I decided to keep my room and make my way through the night. If I had to stay longer I would have asked for a room change-to one like the last room I stayed in Summer '13. I would suggest the hotel update some of its A/C systems, as my coworkers had similar complaints.

"A Well Maintained Holiday Inn"
07/24/14 orv m Montecito, California
This looked like the best place in town when I visited, and I was happy with the value I got vs. the room rate. Room was clean, linens all freshly washed. Internet worked. Check In was friendly, I arrived early and they quickly moved the housekeeping crew to my room to finish. Bar was low end with limited liquor assortment (assume this is a 3rd party operator, I'd fire them) Had breakfast one morning, and food was good.
"Good accommodations, but not worth the price"
07/22/14 HBH2336 Leesburg, Virginia
I stayed here for my high school reunion and grew up in the area. This hotel is in a not so great neighborhood, but I felt safe the entire time I was there. The rooms are updated and were clean. The staff that worked the reunion were friendly and helpful. I didn't eat at the restaurant since my family was close by. My biggest complaint is the cost. So NOT worth it especially for Elmira. I know they are gearing it towards the wine country crowd, but location is not appealing if you're not doing a wine tour.
"Good accommodation, OK hotel staff"
07/06/14 Rakshit R
Rooms were very good and clean. Good value for a stay. Worst restaurant staff. We had purchased the breakfast package while booking the room and when we got to the restaurant in the morning at around 9am and got out at around 11am. the wait to get seated was close to 30min and another 15min to take the order and 30min for the order to be served. The staff working in the restaurant were extremely haphazard and had no value for people's time. The waitress would take the order of 4-5 tables at once and quite obviously brought us the wrong order. When we asked for a coffee refill, it took 15min and a 2nd waitress to get it. Although it was a holiday weekend, the restaurant was barely half full and not many tables were taken. So, that doesn't explain the delay and inefficiency of service. But the bright side was, the food was quite good. So, if time is of essence, skip the $10 for $20 breakfast value package and eat else where. I would stay in this hotel again, just not go to the restaurant.
""Reluctantly Pet-Friendly", but not very accommodating."
07/03/14 Vikmb2 Charlottesville, Virginia
Upon arrival, we found that the only "pet-friendly" rooms they offer have two double beds. Our room was in an older building and smelled very musty,damp and mildewed. It appeared to come from the air-conditioner, even though it was off when we walked in. The humidity in the room was so high that when we payed down the sheets actually felt wet! The night desk clerk warned us that "we ARE the only pet friendly hotel in the area", as if to say take it or leave it. Next morning the front desk clerk was apologetic and offered to move us to the other pet friendly room, so we thought we'd try it. We entered that room and smelled the same mildew along with cat urine, so we checked out. We moved to the Candlewood Inn in Horseheads where they DO accept pets and also offer king suites in beautiful updated rooms for the SAME price.
