“Ok for a night; bed not too comfy, walls paper thin, nonsmoking rooms smells a little like smoke”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

Location was convenient and we were tired so chose this hotel. I though it was a little pricey for what we got. Probably would not choose again. However, the front desk staff was nice and rooms are pretty clean. Bed was lumpy and pillows thin and we could here the conversations, tv and laughing in rooms around us. Also there seemed to be a lot of people standing around outside their doors smoking

And for various reasons I suppose. Usually I dont care for the decor of the rooms, most are rundown and dated.

This hotel was huge! But, outside entrances/no elevator, which I am not too fond of either.

The decor was pleasant and updated. Very clean room. Nice sheets, nice towels, nice water pressure in the shower too!

Staff was friendly and helpful.

The worst thing was the noise level and the draft coming thru around the window and door. You could hear every single person talking, going up/down the steps, rolling luggage etc. Most of the noise went on well into the evening. I also had to place a towel in front of the door to try and stop some of the cold air coming in.

I would prb try this hotel again, but I would absolutely ask for a different room. There has to be some that are actually quiet!

We were on a bike trip, we stayed there on the way out and on the way back, and the woman at the front desk remembered us and asked how our bike trip was. Very thoughtful of her. The rooms were being renovated when we stayed but it wasn't loud and the renos were out of sight. There is a TGI Friday's on site, it was pretty good. The hotel is convenient for travellers. Will be staying there again this summer.

This Best Western was the nicest business hotel I have stayed in. The rooms were renovated in 2011-12 and it shows. My room was clean, fresh and roomy. The bathroom was nice. The shower good. There was a workout room with old equipment, but adequate so that I could use the treadmill every evening for my 4 night stay. Breakfast was generous. Best Western was not my usual choice, but will be for business from now on .

I wasn't expecting much, since it is an older hotel, but was immediately impressed with the front office staff - VERY friendly, helpful and efficient, plus they have terrific little perks in the lobby I have not found anywhere (fresh yummy cookies warm from the oven, fresh popcorn all day), plus different kinds of coffee, tea and hot chocolate 24/7. The place has obviously been updated recently (its still undergoing more improvements) and the rooms are VERY nice - very tasteful decor, comfortable mattresses, GOOD coffee for the in-room coffee maker, and good quality soap and shampoo. Room also included a nice clean little fridge. Very nice free breakfast (ok, so the scrambled eggs are the powdered kind - ewwww, but everything else was good quality and tasty!) My son happened to notice the amazing ceiling work that had been done in our room - to give the room more visual appeal, they had had someone apply some sort of gesso to the surface, and then work an amazing design into it - it rather looked like a giant zinnia head. This hotel was DEFINITELY one of the BEST and nicest deals I have ever stumbled across in the past 10 years. If my son decides to go to college in this town, THIS is the place we will patronize when we need to go up there. (And it doesn't hurt that it is directly connected via the lobby to the TGIF next door!)

Spent one night here while on a motorcycle trip through "leaf country". Very nice hotel. Rooms are nicely furnished. Staff was very welcoming and helpful. The breakfast room was large and pleasant with a great complimentary breakfast. The Friday's adjacent to the hotel was a great bonus. We didn't have to ride to get dinner.
This is a place to keep on my list !!

Just spent this past Saturday night here, The rooms look like they've recently been remodeled,they were clean with comfortable beds.Staff was friendly and the complimentary breakfast was beyond the norm,scrambled eggs,sausage,waffles and all the other continental breakfast items.The TGIF attached to the hotel is very convenient and our stay was enjoyable.
Williamsport is a natural gas drilling hub and bus loads of gas well workers were dropped off and occupied many of the rooms which I guess is normal at most of the hotels in the area.,Not a problem for us but I was surprised to see so many at one hotel.
If we go back up there again,I think we'll stay here again.
