“A Port in a Storm”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

ON our way home from a stay at Niagara Falls, we were stopped by a major east coast snow storm. We selected the Best Western Williamsport because we had just stayed in a Best Western and this one was on our way home. We were delighted at the staff friendliness and willing to help. We were snowbound for a day and the front desk offered games and books for us to use in our room. We also used the fitness center and had breakfast there. Both were small but very nicely done. We were very appreciative of the hotels flexibility and willingness to assist us during our snow delay.

A/C unit was not working. It was a -5C or so night. After checking in, we turned up the heat and thought it may take a while to kick in - it never did. We did realize in the middle of the night but the thought of getting out of the bed and having to change room with a 3 year old forced us to deal with till next morning. Manager confirmed and moved us to the room next door with a working A/C. It was an inconvenient stay as a result of this.

Hotel was very nice, staff was super friendly, room was very nicely decorated and comfortable for business trip. For business trip I would recommend to stay there. They have a TGI Fridays right next to the hotel and you can cross the parking lot for eating there. Overall I liked the hotel and stay.

The staff was caring and accommodating when we had a problem with our heating system. They even upgraded us to a new room. The breakfast was excellent with choices of hot foods like bacon and eggs plus waffles and many cold cereals and yogurts. The room was immaculate. There was a restaurant on site.

Was in Williamsport for business and stayed here. The staff was friendly and helpful. Knowing I was from out of town they asked if I needed directions to where I needed to go. It is things like that that are extremely helpful! Thanks to all!

This hotel is I the middle of the Golden Strip on Third Street in Williamsport. Lots of restaurants and hotels in the area. This hotel is clean, staff friendly and is adjoined with TGIF.

The room has all of the usual amenities, coffee pot, small frig and microwave.

The one thing I liked was the ac/heater did not cycle on and off all night.

The breakfast room is large and has all the usual things one wants to include eggs and a meat. Everything is not all placed on one counter, it's spread out so people can move freely around the room. Friendly breakFast host and she kept things well stocked.
