Historical Traveler Reviews La Tourelle Ithaca
Good choice-You won't be disappointed!
Very clean, well appointed rooms. Friendly staff. The A/C units are have above average noise. No hair dryer in room. La Tourelle is in the process of adding a large, new wing. The construction was not a problem and the new rooms should be very nice.
While I was less than super-impressed with the town of Ithaca itself, this inn was clean, comfortable, and quiet, with spacious rooms and country ambience, near outstanding state parks. For those who don't care much for B&Bs or chain motels. Only real downside: No breakfast! Free internet in lobby. A few easy miles from downtown (though because of one-way roads you may need to take a slightly different route returning, so check before you leave).
A nice place to begin a trip to the Finger Lakes.
They also appear to be just beginning to offer packages of land and water outdoor activities, so inquire if you're interested.
A Peaceful Get-away
La Tourelle is a paeceful get-away...laid back but with all the amenities that one expects whether on business or a mini vacation. Loaded with atmosphere and not far from many attractions that are in the neighborhood.
Not too large allowing one to have personalized service and get to know the employees. Large accomodations and with a bed to write home about.
A comfortable "home away from home" where one can energize themselves
and escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
Wish that I could spend more time there.

A Hotel with Class
The La Tourelle is a hotel with class. My wife and I had a very pleasent and relaxing stay at this hotel. The staff at the La Tourelle are wonderful and do every thing to make you like your not at home. I am recomending to anyone that is visiting Ithaca to stay at the La tourelle, it will not be a disapointment.
Best Place to stay
The LaTourelle has a very relaxing atmosphere. The staff is very accomodating and helpful. Views from the property are fantastic. Close to everything but far enough away for quiet retreat.
Spacious and comfortable rooms.
I would highly recommend to anyone wishing to visit the area.
We had a great time. You couldn't ask for more.
We spent a weekend at the La Tourelle Inn, we had a wonderful time. We had a beautiful room and very spacious. The veiws from there are absolutely wonderful, it is a very tranquil place. Not far from the waterfalls, which is also a beautiful part of nature. The staff of the hotel were very polite and were very helpful. We had a great time..... if your looking for a get away, try the La Tourelle for a very relaxing and enjoyable time.
A Great Place to Stay
I was amazed. I was weary when I saw the construction but it was all for naught. I never heard the construction going on at any time during my stay and I was in a room near where the addition was being built. From the personal greeting when we walked in the door to the spacious room, the hotel and the staff were a delight. The King size beds with the feather bed mattress were heaven. I never slept so well in a hotel before. The fire in the fireplace every evening was a welcome every evening sitting around chatting with friends.
Home away from Home
When traveling to Ithaca to visit our son at Ithaca College, we always stay at La Tourelle - its cozy, clean and very comfortable. The rooms have comfortable featherbeds and back up to a beautiful state park. The rates are reasonable unless its Parent's Weekend or Graduation weekend. The inn is ideally located close to Ithaca College.
Glad we found this place!
What a beautiful place. From the minute we entered the lobby, we knew we were in for a treat and not just a typical hotel. We had a lovely, spacious room with a king sized bed. Loved the featherbed! The staff was wonderful and very friendly. We will be back.
Great place to stay in a great town
Great place - Great staff. The charm of the Inn setting is wonderful.
The grounds are beautiful - if you like to see deer grazing on the yard. Rooms are very nice, comfortable and ALWAYS FRESH>but the best deal of the stay is the staff. They go out of their way to make you stay pleasurable.

... it being Labor Day. Even the ride through Cincinnati was done with no issues, again probably because of the holiday and Bill's scheduling us through at 7 pm. The temperatures stayed moderate (84 max) all day and we found ourselves in Florence, KY ay 8 pm with 620 miles down and a reasonable ride facing us to get home tomorrow. A quick meal at McDonalds and a showers and to bed for a great nights ...

We elected to stay in the rally grounds today due to the rain, which picked up some late I n the morning.

... After being inspected n By the shop dog ( always a good sign to me) we were soon insde and they were hard at work changing the front tire. They also inspected the front end to be sure it was tight as they have had a couple of EZ Steer front ends have bolts back out in service. No Issues with Eltee's bolts, but good that they knew to check. If you are in the area I would recommend a stop by Heid's whether or not you need maintenance as they are a group of nice folks ...
Lovely sunny hot day and we head to the docks to find our bikes. A short taxi ride and we are there and inside this warehouse we are introduced back with our bikes. What a lovely sight. I guess we take about two hours getting our bikes and luggage sorted, then we hit the busy road so many huge lorries around the port area.
After fueling up we hit the road north with a lunch stop at ...

The hike was pretty neat up into this gorge formed over past 12,000 years fro mwater erosion by the river. We walked along part of the river bed so Sraddha could cool off by getting feet wat on return trip.
