“Excellent hotel and great location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

The staff of this hotel were wonderful. The hotel is located across the street from the Olympic Center and short walk to all the shops and restaurants. The continental breakfast was one of the best I have ever had. It had scrambled eggs (that were good!) along with pancakes and sausage and a variety of fresh fruit along with all the other staples. It has a very nice lobby with variety of games for the kids to play there. We were there for the AAU basketball tournament over the weekend. A nice pool area (the only drawback to this area was the intense heat). I didn't swim but wanted to hang out there with everyone and it was a bit difficult with the heat. It has a nice balcony sitting area which we enjoyed one evening. If you walked outside to the back of the hotel, there was a nice park area overlooking Mirror Lake. So, overall we had a wonderful time there. There were approximtely 11 families that stayed here. The room was spacious which was a plus.

I've stayed here twice, once in the fall and once during ski season. It is a nice hotel and the location is perfect for walking almost everywhere in town. The rooms are a good size, some much bigger than others and most seem to have access to an outside sitting area with Adirondack chairs. The pool is below ground so very little, if any, natural light.

The breakfast room is huge but only accessible during breakfast hours which doesn't really make sense since it would be a great place for large groups to socialize instead of in the hallways disturbing other guests. There are many board games available in the lobby but not much room or table space in there. The breakfast is quite extensive offering a good variety of hot foods, fruit, yogurt, breads, pastries, etc.

Some rooms have refrigerators (no freezers for ice packs) but only the suites have microwaves. We were told there was a microwave in the breakfast room but it was locked. I agree with other reviews, the rooms could use a sprucing up. The beds are very comfortable and the bedding seems newer.

The hotel offers discounted lift tickets ($60 instead of $84) at Whiteface but they don't tell you or advertise it at the front desk. Instead, there is a little sign on a table in the lobby that is easily missed. Luckily I noticed it when returning from breakfast. I mentioned to the front desk clerk that it should be moved to the front desk or advertised on their website.

On my first stay, we had to wait 90 minutes after the check-in time to get our room then they wouldn't extend our check-out for an hour. On my second stay, a school group spent the entire evening socializing in the hallways, even after being asked to move into rooms by both guests and staff. Had they opened the breakfast room for them, other guests wouldn't have been disturbed.

For the most part it is a good hotel, near lots of restaurants, across from the Olympic Arena, and often with reasonable rates for the town during the week.

Reading the review by David F,it hit the mark, location is great, staff was great, breakfest selection was real good, pool area was hot but still good, game room had foosball table that was warped & needs to be replaced as was the pool table that was warped & in horrible shape. The hotel is old, thin walls & floors. I suggested to online BW survey that when they redo the carpeting, they should use thicker padding to reduse noise. Would stay here again as long as the price is right. Large beds & service of rooms where also excellant!

My family stayed over Winter Break and found this place to be quite interesting. The rooms were clean and big. The furniture however was mismatched and tired. The place could use new wallpaper and paint and definitely new carpet in the halls and rooms. The lobby is small by the "Breakfast Bar" is as big a some places restaurants!!! Why they do not have a bar in this place I do not know !!! The pool deck is 85 degrees! Talk about uncomfortable! Don't get me wrong the place is nice ... It's location is OUTSTANDING and it can be had for reasonable rates ... BUT Best Western is really missing the boat with this place!!! It could be oh, so much more! Anthony, where are you?!
