“Very nice autumn stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Everything about my overnight stay in Oswego was great. The young lady at the desk changed my room to a "5th floor" riverview room (which was great!) The room was spacious and clean, and all the staff I met were very helpful and friendly. Complimentary continental breakfast was standard but well serviced. I was a little concerned that the walls might be thin as I heard my neighbor's TV early in the evening, but either that concern was unfounded or everyone went to bed early as I slept well and was not disturbed by any noise.

Room Tip: Definitely get a riverview room. The hotel is built into a bluff or hill, so the entrance, lobby an...

I am an alumni of the college so I find myself returning to my old haunt quite often. Usually I "splurge" for the Captain's Quarters but this time around it booked up early. Preferring to be in the Riverfront area I took a chance on the Quality Inn right next door. I say chance because it had previously been an Econolodge - emphasis on the "econo" - which did not have a stellar reputation. Overall the management has done a fine job upgrading the property but there are a few quibbles. The walls are a tad thin as proven by the late night dating discussion I was privvy to from the 20-somethings ladies in the room next door. Some wear and tear is becoming apparent on the furnishings and wallpaper as well. And can a brother get an convenient power outlet? All of the outlets seemed to be hidden behind the largest pieces of furniture. Still the beds and pillows were very comfortable and the staff very professional. This was only a one night stay for me so the quibbles did not amount to too much, ergo the very good rating rather than average. That and it being a less expensive option to the Captain's Quarters.

I usually don't write reviews for hotels but the team at the Quality definitely deserve huge kudos for the great customer service. Stayed there this weekend and forgot an iphone charger. Sharayah took my phone and hooked it up to the boss's charger so I could take the many photos you take during a reunion weekend. Thank you Sharayah for going the extra mile. Your sunny personality made my trip. The rooms are very nice and I was lucky enough to have a riverfront view. It was a soldout weekend but the rooms were quiet and a great place to unwind when the festivities were over. I would absolutely return to the Quality Inn on my next trip to Oswego!

This was a nice hotel ... pleasant ... clean.
The staff were also nice.
Joe at the desk was helpful.
Brittany in housekeeping was absolutely adorable...and efficient.
The lobby was spacious.
I was on the front of the building, so I did not see a view of the riverfront.
The location was good if you have any business to conduct in Oswego.
There were plenty of towels and hot water was good.
The restaurant/bar off the lobby was nice. I ordered a sandwich to go.
The "cons" were that there were few outlets in the room. I had to run an extension that I always bring on travel. (Then I found one low on the wall near the a/c)
Also, there was only a small round table in the room and not a desk to sit and work at.
All and all though, a nice place ... I would stay again!

The Quality Inn Riverfront continues to upgrade this property, and the results show. The beds are among the most comfortable I've found in any hotel or motel, and air conditioner unit runs quietly and without rattles or vibrations. Ask for Room 503, which has a view of both the lake and the river. It's a perfect location. And special kudos to Sara at the front desk. She is from Oswego and is obviously quite proud of her home town and the property in which she works.

Room Tip: Try to get a room closer to the lake and away from the Bridge Street bridge, which has some traffic...

spent two nights here for a conference. Accommodations were good. Slept well - great beds. Was super clean, attractive rooms. Wish I would have gotten a riverside view, but oh well. Check in and out was a breeze. Would definitely stay here again if in the area.

We recently took a road trip for a quick overnight at the Quality Inn & Suites in downtown Oswego New York. What a great time we had. The rooms overlooking the river are beautiful and very clean. The people at the desk are very knowledgeable with info. The outside deck with bar and quickdraw is fun. The fod in Steamers bar and grill is very good and the prices are very resonable. Sometimes they have bands which is always a nice bonus. The staff is also very fun and love there jobs. In the morning they have a wonderful continental breakfast buffet. Lastly the room prices are extremely resonable.
So for a great getaway you won't be sorry check this place out.

Room Tip: The river view rooms are the best and we prefer the 4th and 5th floors.

Thank you for the wonderful review!

It's great to hear that we met or exceeded your expectations across the board and each department will be copied on your review. I think it's more common for people to give feedback only when they see room for improvement and not for the sole purpose of recognizing service. I can assure you our staff enjoys positive feedback like yours as much as they need the feedback which helps us grow. I thank you for the extra time you took to review our property and hope your positive experiences continue when you return to Oswego. Safe travels!
