“Conveniently placed stop en route”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2010 via mobile

Stopped on long drive west to east, found good value comfortable, clean well placed room which served our needs. Breakfast fairly minimal and no fruit at all was our biggest disappointment. Suggest hotel remedies this omission?

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2010

Stayed one night at the University Best Western. The front desk was polite and helpful. Rooms were clean and roomy.Small but good breakfast @ the lobby area. Rates were reasonable. Used AARP discount. Surprised how quiet the rooms were. A wedding party had room next door, figured they would be noisy, but our room was quiet. Will stay again when in Olean. Tim Horton's across the street.

Had stayed here last summer, did not have a stellar experience...but B/W offered 50% off on next stay. So we went back. Got a room w/ a roll in shower....not what we would have chosen...but it was clean, beds/pillows were comfortable. Overall a pretty good stay.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2008

Our stay was in November 2008. We found the rooms to be clean and comfortable. The breakfast was fine, staff friendly and helpful. It had snowed the evening we were staying and when we left in the morning a staff member came to our car with an ice scraper and cleared off the snow and ice.

  • Liked — Clean, comfortable rooms
  • Disliked — My parents had the room next to the elevator which somewhat interupted their sleep

We stayed here for two nights during a ski weekend - it's about a 30 minute drive from Holiday Valley Ski Resort. We had an excellent stay - especially appreciated the in room micowave & refrigerator and enjoyed the coninental breakfast. The staff was very friendly and we were able to check into our room early and head to the slopes. Our son enjoyed the pool - only drawback for me was that there wasn't a hot tub. Laundry facilities were also available in house and it's very close to shopping, cinema and restaurants. St. Bonaventure University is right down the street.

We were travelling from Washington DC to Niagara Falls and rather than do it in the one day decided to stop in Olean. The motel was located on the main road into town and was easy to find.
As overseas travellers this was our first experience of US motels and we were pleasantly surprised. The reception staff was friendly, the rooms were large & well appointed with refrigerator, microwave, DVD player, plus an indoor swimming pool & guests laundry.

Located across the road was a large shopping mall and a couple of places to eat.

Breakfast was pretty basic but more than enough to get you going for the day.

We’d have no problem in staying here again.

We (party of 7 with three rooms) stayed here 6 nights. The front desk and housekeeping staff was very friendly. The rooms were still new looking and had a refrigerator, microwave, and a DVD player. The hotel had a free DVD library with some of the latest movies. The hotel has a free warm breakfast and cookies in the afternoon as well as coffee or hot chocolate and juice all day long. We also took advantage of the free high-speed Internet as well as the pool.

The hotel was in walking distance of several restaurants and a Wal-mart was across the street. We loved its location as from Olean we were close to Allegany State Park, Niagara Falls and other points of interest.

We definately recommend this hotel and hopefully we will be back to this location soon.
