              The room was very nice and a very extensive Continental Breakfast was included in the price. Very nice.

              Wish it had a bar/restaurant and a pool.

              Convenience to destination..friendly staff....

              Rooms very small....not too much around it ti do.

              Helpful, friendly front desk staff. Healthy breakfast options on their self-serve free breakfast.

              Close to my business meeting in Troy the next day. Free WiFi was useful. Useful to be able to grab a breakfast as part of my rate. Not a great breakfast, but at least 2 or 3 hot choices & yogurt and commercial granola in addition to the usual cereals & not-very-good-looking muffins. I didn't expect a moderatelt priced Best Western to provide terry cloth robes. A nice touch.

              A couple of minor housekeeping issues. Room had been cleaned & readied, but it was disconcerting to find someone else's shirt hanging in the closet. The cleaner should have removed that. Also, they left the bathroom tissue box with very few tissues in it.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              The beds were very comfortable. Very nice toiletries. Plenty of towels. Nicely appointed room. Good, free wi-fi in the room. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. I liked having access to hot water, a selection of teas in the afternoon. There was a complementary breakfast which I could have tried, but I preferred to sleep in the cozy bed!

              Only one tiny problem -- the refrigerator motor was too noisy so we just unplugged it.

            • Family with children
              7.8

              There seemed to be some kind of "plastic" covering over the mattress that I could feel and that made the bed not feel great. Also, the room colors in the room were dark and seemed a bit out of date. Should lighten it up with white bedspread and lighter design elements.=

              the room was super and beautiful. the staff kept it spotless. we were so pleased with everything about our stay.

              We were visiting our son at the university. The hotel were very clean and nice, very good breakfast. The staff were very serviceminded

              Very nice and well maintained with very friendly staff, good parking, and great breakfast.

              I just don't like very thick, heavy, feather-laden duvets. They are just too hot! And, if I throw them off the bed the underlying sheets and light blanket are fine but don't come up enough to cover shoulders and arms. Otherwise, I'd like full movie service, absence of which I find disappointing, this visit and the last, a few years ago. Bjw

            • Group of friends
              8.8

              The hotel staff were friendly and very helpful. There were many options for breakfast. All foods were tasty and fresh. Having access to coffee, tea and juices throughout the day was a plus !

              The rooms were average but the breakfast was good.
