I stayed here while one of my students visited RPI overnight. I had a room with one king bed and it was kind of small, but appeared to be newly renovated. The front desk staff was great and very helpful. The free breakfast buffet was adequate - typical of free hotel breakfast buffets: scrambled eggs, breakfast potatoes, sausage, cereal, muffins,...

Giving high quality customer service is not that difficult, it just takes some effort. This hotel offers real service. The front desk people were helpful when I needed directions, the hotel was clean, breakfast was outstanding, and the location and parking were great. What more can I say, except that I will be back!

This hotel was far nicer than other Best Westerns. Lovely lobby and redone rooms. The staff was wonderful, very accommodating. We would definitely return if we were staying in the area. Much nicer breakfast than most which was included in the price of the room.
