The bottom floor felt like I was staying in a basement, room seemed really small. I love the fact that they are a "Eco Friendly" but most of the pillows had some sort of make-up all over them, they really should have been cleaned and not left for the next guess. The Bathroom was small, old and dirty (hair in... More

The heater was noisy. The pool ' spa is nicely appointed. There pool / spa is nicely appointed. There is no complementary breakfast bar. The Inn is well located near St. Lawrence , but book a year in advance for any major University event, especially Parent's Weekend.

The lack of hotels in Potsdam/Canton is shocking in light of 4 Universities located there. Best Western is among the best of the lot. If it is a big weekend, you need reservations far in advance. Be careful of the lower level because it flooded while I was there and although everyone insisted it was unusual, I wouldn't want to... More

The hotel was great. The only draw back was no cell phone service in my room. The location was alright. Wanted to stay in Potsdam but Canton was the only hotel with rooms available. The breakfast was amazing and the price was right.

When your child is going to school in the Canton/Potsdam area in NY there is not a huge selection of places to stay. After a 6 hour drive the Best Western University Inn was a welcome sight. The hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Over the next 4 years we will be visiting this area... More

Nice hotel for the college drop off. Nice bar, good food. Nice helpful staff. Great price. Call far in advance for special occasions. No complaints, clean and friendly! No really other options, so I was surprised the staff was so friendly, and rooms were comfy. Great indoor hot tub and pool area. Bring your bathing suits, have a drink with... More

The bathroom floor was covered in hair. There was pubic hair on the tub and the clean towels! We showed the person on duty at the front desk - he did nothing. There were no other rooms and no rooms anywhere else due to the students moving in. Wee had to clean the mess ourselves they did not offer! Not... More

Not a big selection in this area. Best Western fair. The front desk staff was okay. Room was outdated. Bathroom small. No breakfast. Easy to find and very close to the university. Didn't try the restaurant.
