“Good Pet friendly stop for a night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012 via mobile

This was my third time staying at this location in three years. It is very much improved since another chain owned it two years ago. At that time it wasn't a place I would choose but gave me a stop for the night. Now the place has been cleaned up, the staff has gotten friendlier, they include a decent breakfast and had a "puppy bag" for the dog.

The pool looked good but we didn't get a chance to swim. I recommend this as a very good place to stop on a long journey and probably would be fine for a few days if visiting the area. Very close to I90 and easy to get off and on.

Stayed August 2012, traveled with family

This hotel offers great deals on top of large rooms, a plush, comfortable bed, great hot breakfast, pool, hot tub, gym. The hallway carpets need to be replaced within 6-12 months. Plenty of parking. I would come here again.

The staff is so nice. I went to the front desk and asked about golf courses around. No one there played and the manager, Jennifer, called Simone and asked for me. She didn't have to do that but its just an example of the customerservice that is important to me when I travel. After golfing,I went back to thank them for the info and all of them were so nice. Gabby faced some papers for me. Definitely stay here everytime I go to Syracuse!

Stopped at this hotel on the way to Boston from London. Arrived around 9pm, check in was quick and the staff was nice. The rooms were clean and the bed was very comfortable. Couple of downsides to the room though. The air conditioning was a little loud and the ceiling in the bathroom had a bunch of cracks in it. Almost looked like it was going to fall off in a couple places. Breakfast in the morning was decent. Good hotel bar, a few TV's with sports on and the bartender was very nice, thanks Cindy. Location is just off the highway and easy to find. Overall I would stay here again if I needed a place for the night before continuing on to the east coast.

We have stayed at this hotel many times when it was a Holiday Inn, mainly because of the indoor pool for the kids, but over the last few years both the facility and quality of service from the staff had deteriorated noticeably so we have made other choices when in Syracuse. Since our last visit it has been taken over by Best Western so we decided to give it another try. Glad we did. Almost everything about this hotel has improved. It is an older facility so there are a few cosmetic warts, but the rooms have been renovated and they are clean, comfortable and quiet, with refrigerator, flat screen tv, comfortable new bedding and reasonably nice bathrooms. The staff is courteous and friendly (ie better trained), and there is more attention to cleanliness around the building and grounds. We noticed staff constantly at work sweeping up cigarette butts at the doors (why do people do that? - there is an ashtray at every entrance) for example, which we seldom noticed under the old regime. No smell of smoke or broken or torn items in the rooms as others have reported. There is a restaurant, lounge, exercise room and sparkling clean pool and sauna open late, free hot breakfast and several good restaurants within walking distance, all for under $100 per. If you want a mint on your pillow, by all means put down the $250 and check in at the Marriott, otherwise imo this is the best deal around.

Great room. Comfortable beds. Awesome pool. Huge breakfast room and delicious free breakfast. Great service. Originally put into a non-smoking room on a smoking floor with smoking rooms across from our non-smoking room??? Very strange I thought. So, I asked to be moved to a non-smoking room on a NON-smoking floor and our request was granted. The hotel is a bit dated. The bathroom fixtures need to be replaced. The tub surround in our room was cracked and damaged and beyond repair. The property is very large.
