“Ithaca doesn’t have many great places to stay. A few very few decent hotels in town, but this place which is only 4 hundred yards from Ithaca College and 3 miles from Cornell, is the bomb. I almost didn’t want to write it so it doesn’t fill up when I need to go. This is a very unique place I hope to return soon.”
