Cheap and clean
A no-frills place. Clean room and friendly staff. About 5 minutes from downtown Cortland and 40 minutes from Cornell.

Throwback to my childhood travels with family on vacations. Barebones roadside motel that was quite clean and comfortable.

Way too much money for this place. Air conditioner didn't work good, not very clean, run down, and room smelled. I'd never stay here again.
