I brought my daughter to visit SUNY Delhi and Buena Vista Inn is the only option close to the college. Our experience was exactly what we needed. The room was comfortable, continental breakfast offered enough options to start the day and cost is reasonable. If you prefer a chain hotel with a pool, work out room, etc., recommend driving 20...

While checking out SUNY Delhi for my daughter's possibility into her admission, we decided to stay at Buena Vista Inn (Motel) on State Highway 28. We were looking for a franchise Hotel, but the closest ones were at least 20 miles away at Oneonta. The bathroom was very clean and spotless. The beds were very comfortable and the room was... More

We've been back several times since last review.... Still as charming as ever! Love the people and the atmosphere! Love the laid-back country style... Is it a 5star vacation resort? No...but that is not what you would want in a country town. This is comfort, charm and good old-fashioned hospitality!

Let's face it. This is the only option in Delhi so I wouldn't try to be overly picky. Jysoph (sp?), the owner, is very friendly. The rooms are different sizes but with the new laminate flooring in all the rooms, they are quieter. The beds are comfortable. The breakfast is simple but adequate. I say its cozy.

My daughter goes to SUNY Delhi and we need a local place to stay. Speaking to many people in town we were adivsed not go here. We figured how bad could it be. We went to look at a room before booking....it smelled, it was dingy and the women who showed us the room acted annoyed. Unfortunately there is no... More

My son and friend of others attend Lake Delaware Boys Camp every year for the past 4-5 years. I had the pleasure of staying at this Motel on two separate occasions this past month. It was because the first was so welcoming and accommodating that my friends and I decided to stay another night. We had a better time the... More

Have stayed here twice on business this year, it is a lower cost solution to staying in Oneonta, and on my way. The rooms are spotless. The 2nd time I got a snazzy room in the front with Pergo style floors, new modern desk, and a great bedspread and sham with red flowers! Cheery! Joseph is friendly and we converse... More

We stayed at the Buena Vista for 5 nites in July. The owner is very accommodating. The rooms vary in quality and space. This time we were near the office on the main floor and were very happy. Room was clean, smells good and was spacious. The breakfast is adequate. Location is terrific

Not sure how AAA came up with the rating, by far not a comfortable place. I was doing business with a company in Delhi, and when I told them I was staying here the reaction was less than spectacular. I was told I should bring my own linens as the Motel was not what you would call clean. I did... More
