“Good Location, Good Rooms, and Free Breakfest”
Reviewed September 26, 2011

I have stayed here Multiple times over the past 3 years while traveling for work. I really like the location as it is right off Stone Road (Which has a mall, multiple restaurants, gas stations, and not too far from the actual downtown area as well).

The rooms seem like they had been updated within the past few years, and was a really comfortable stay.

They do have a lounge which servces food/room service, yet i usually just went out to eat at another restaurant since I was looking for a place with a better atmosphere. The free breakfest in the morning is a great advantage as well too.

But overall, perfect place to stay for me while traveling for work.

In September when returning our son to university, we stayed at the Best Western. We have stayed at this hotel several times over the years (when it was the Ramada) and have always enjoyed our stay. The rooms are nice and large and clean. It is close to the university and to the mall and has a nice complimentary breakfast. The only thing lacking is a dining room. We had dinner in the small bar which only holds a few people. Another plus is the discount when one is staying because of bringing students to university. We will definitely be making reservations to stay there again in December.

We had a very comfortable room with balcony; everything was very clean and in good working order, but the hall in the addition we were in had a decidedly musty odor. The motel location is on the edge of town, opposite the university and was pretty quiet while we were there. When I asked about the possibility of getting a newspaper, I was told there is a box over in the entrance way to the conference center which is attached to the main building. The breakfast had a nice selection of hot foods as well as cereals and fruit. The menu for the "bistro" which is a tiny area on the lower level, with a bar, and is only open 6-9 pm was not interesting so we found another place to have dinner. On our return around 7:30 I wanted a glass of wine so went to the "bistro" where there was no one working...and a family of four ending a meal The gal at the desk found someone, but then it emerged that I couldn't just get the wine and wander to my room; it had to be room service. On check-out I asked where the meals for this ghost restaurant were cooked and was told "at the conference center kitchen". That's probably ok but I really think the place is running primarily as a conference center and really not focused on guests i.e. the newspaper box and the lack of staff in the so-called bistro. The staff were very friendly and helpful; we got several recommendations in the area for dinner. We took a long walk in the arboretum located on the university grounds (which was very nice) but in the morning we realized we could have as easily walked into the main section of Guelff for a different kind of experience. Across the street there is a Delta Hotel which I would probably try the next time we're in the area.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms are a hike down a long hall and through 2 doors; next time I'd ask for a room...

Our room was quiet, clean and very comfortable. The complimentary breakfast had a variety of fresh food, so was most enjoyable. We would definitely stay there again.

We recently stayed in one of the Best Western's suites and really enjoyed our stay. For a little extra we stayed in a very spacious room that enabled us to visit with family. We thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor pool area also.

Twice in the last 24 months I have had to travel to Guelph so that our beloved Sheltie, Skye, could receive radiation therapy at the Small Animal Clinic at the OVC at the University of Guelph. On both occasions we have received excellent service from everyone we have had contact with in this super city. The Best Western is a dog friendly hotel that provides responsible pet owners a comfortable, safe environment. The rooms are extremely comfortable and spacious. The continental breakfast is great. Service is excellent. The helpful, professional staff has quickly sorted out any request during my 9 week stay. Location is perfect...easy access to the 401, adjacent to the University of Guelph campus, excellent shopping a 2 minute drive along Stone Road. My wife and I especially appreciate the toll free number which allows us frequent contact even though we are 300 miles apart. The rates are very reasonable. We're definitely staying here again.
