    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.

    Nice stay


    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.

    Beautiful Stay


    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.

    Just that. Nothing special. Stopped at a convenience store, bought a bottle of water and gave a couple cub scouts who were doing a fund raiser a few dollars. Trying to decide whether I want to spend another night on the road or save money and ride the rest of the way home. Skies are a mix of sun and large dark clouds in the distance. When the sun isn't shining it's a little cool --- high today is only around ...

    ... through the lower level of the gorge are simply beautiful. The walkways, which hug the sides of the gorge, are made out of the rock from the gorge. There are many stairs, as well as several bridges and tunnels to make the walk especially interesting. There's no shortage of opportunities to capture interesting photographs. Admission to the park was $8 but it also allowed entry to any of the New York state parks for a few ...

Heading for ice cream in to Itacha, not very optimistic that we would find an ice cream shop open at half 9 at night. How wrong was I! A queue like an execution and more flavours than I've ever seen and some I'm still not entirely sure what fruit/animal they came from. I went for a double ...

    ... our stay even though it was a rainy day. The falls are considered one of the outstanding natural attractions of the northeast. They plunge 215 feet over rocky cliffs into the gorge and what a fantastic sight it is. There is a picnic area, swimming and boat dock with slips on the lake side of 89. The park is also used for cross country skiing, sledding and skating. Summer concerts are held on the lake side. We ...
