Great room, clean and fresh smelling. Close to St Rose College, I wanted to get an early start moving my daughter into school. Breakfast was great, fantastic selection. Very friendly staff. We loved seeing the dogs around the hotel; nice to know it is a pet friendly environment. Pool looked inviting, but I did not bring my bathing suit; perhaps... More

Only stayed one night for business. I didn't take advantage of the amenities, but they have a full range. The hotel is a little dated. Low ceilings and some dated finishes, but the rooms were clean. For the cost and value, I'd stay here again.

I arrived to the hotel late that night and check in was not a problem. Being extremely tired from moving my son into his dorm room, I went straight to bed. The... More

I checked in very late on Saturday evening, and the overnight front desk woman was excellent. She had her hands full but handled everything with perfection. She was kind, courteous and professional. Not always the kind of service you receive from a younger individual. My room was excellent as well. Everything in proper working order, and cleaned very thoroughly. You... More

This is a great hotel, I stayed at a Quality branded hotel in Canada for 4 nights before this and my wife was much happier in this hotel for a single night than at the Quality in CA. When passing through again, itll be on my short list. Although there did seem to be a fairly large price disparity between... More

Fantastic staff....friendly and accomodating. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Pool is heated and a joy to swim in. Great location with plenty of food options in walking distance. The price was very reasonable and this place is great value for the money

Amazing breakfast with fresh strawberries, waffles etc one of the best we had on this 7 day trip. Rooms were good, location good as we were just travelling through to Boston. We try to use Best Western whenever we can.
