“Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2008

Four of us stayed here for 2 nights. This is a wonderful hotel, the front part of the hotel is the original home and the blend of old home and hotel was seamless. This hotel is very clean, trust me I find very few hotels worthy of this word! The service received at the front desk was second to none. We were given a better rate at check in than what was quoted on the phone. The breakfast they have is very filling. You will not be disappointed.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2008

A friend and I were on a "road trip" from Detroit to Maine and planned to include the Cleveland Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. However, comments on this site suggested that spending the night in Cleveland would have few attractions for us. We therefore looked for something nearby, and chose the BW Lawnfield in Mentor.
The BW Lawnfield was definitely a good choice for us. It was quiet, well-appointed, reasonably-priced, and provided above-average service.
Although it's not far from the interstate, the Inn is lengthwise to the main road, so the rooms seem quiet. The front of the building was a 19th-century home, the remainder was built as a hotel in an era when 10' ceilings were the norm. As a result, it has a spacious and unique atmosphere for a Best Western, while providing an elevator & up-to-date plumbing.
It had the usual amenities for a hotel of this class, plus a few extra. The small pool is surrounded by a small & charming garden; the continental breakfast is served on real china in a room that looks like a dining room, not a factory break room!
The front desk staff were friendly and helpful: they gave directions to a nearby mall, and provided information about Amish country attractions in the area.
Overall, it was probably our favourite of the 12 hotels/motels (between $85-$110 nightly) we used on our holiday.

We found this hotel by sheer luck while searching for a hotel, any hotel, with a room available. We got lucky and got their last available room for the night.
This is the highest end of the Best Western chain in my opinion, clearly the nicest Best Western my wife and I have ever stayed at. This hotel has a lot of charm and character, everything in the hotel is high caliber. The front of the building is renovated from a historic home with the bulk of the hotel added to the rear of it in a very nice manner. Can't go wrong with this hotel!

Stopped on the way through, without benefit of reviews but with one of those coupon books you get on the tollroad. The price was still a bit steep for a family of four, but the place really is charming and very comfortable. Surprisingly, however, the breakfast was just so-so. Hotel is just a one mile drive to President James Garfield's home, so the kids actually got a history lesson too. Would definitely stay again.

Wow, what a great hotel! My family and I enjoyed the quaint atmosphere coupled with all of the conveniences of a modern hotel. The staff was friendly and the room was like a residence inn with a stting area, fold out couch and two TVs. Next time I am in the area I will be sure and stay again.

I haven't stayed at a Best Western in years and years. I picked this one because of the positive reviews on TripAdvisor, and the reviews were right on the money.
The lobby and exterior do seem much more like a bed and breakfast than a chain hotel. There were decorations appropriate to the season, a grand piano, lit candles and comfortable places to sit and relax both in the lobby and on the porch. According to a staff member a B&B ambiance is their goal, and I'd say they have succeeded. Even the stairwells, usually utilitarian at best in most chain hotels, were carpeted and decorated with floral arrangements.
My suite had plenty of room. There was a "living room" with its own TV, a kitchenette area with a microwave, under-counter style refrigerator, coffee maker and lots of counter and cupboard space.
The bedroom had a king-sized bed along with an armoire that contained an ironing board, iron, hairdryer and TV.
The room is furnished in typical hotel chain furniture, but the crystal lamps in the bedroom and the potpourri sachet in the bathroom gave a B&B touch. The room was clean, there were plenty of towels, the HVAC was adequate and adjustable, there were many electrical outlets that were also easy to reach and everything in the room worked perfectly.
The continental breakfast, included in the room price, consisted of bagels, assorted breads and mini-muffins, fresh fruit, cereal and hot and cold beverages. A nice touch at breakfast was real china and fresh flowers on the tables.
The staff members were pleasant and helpful.
I will stay here again.
