    « Miami U visit »

    We arrived to visit with our granddaughter who is a freshman at Miami University. This location was very convenient being walking distance to the campus. It was convenient for shopping and restaurants.

    « Great location and hotel »

    Have stayed several times during college visits. The location is in town and very close to campus. Hotel and rooms are clean. The staff is wonderful _ they provide great service, are professional and friendly.

    « What a hidden gem in Oxford »

    A very comfortable hotel where the staff really do treat you like family. I have never had a stay in a hotel before where they were as friendly and as helpful as the employees at this hotel. Beds are comfy. Bathroom was a little on the small side, but it let you do what you needed to. The popcorn in the evenings was a nice addition. We did not use the breakfast bar, the conference we were at provided breakfast for us. Pool looked very inviting and we did dip our feet in the hot tub. With limited hotels in Oxford this one is one you should try. Very close to the university and Marcum center. Uptown is just a walk, uphill, away. Or a very short drive.

    « Pleasant hotel near downtown »

    The Sycamore BW is a nice hotel within a couple minutes walk of downtown Oxford. It is located in a primarily residential area. I had a second floor room, That had been recently updated. The room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. The pillows, on the other hand were not. The room's main door would benefit from privacy trim to block the light that shown around the entire door frame. There is a small indoor pool, that was clean and uncrowded. The hot tub was out of order. The breakfast was similar to most hotels in this class, a waffle maker, a few pastries, some cereal, boiled eggs, and a banana, juice and coffee. One I had not seen before was a Bob Evans gravy dispenser. On the second morning much of the breakfast food was not available, appearing not to have been replenished from the previous morning. Our stay was during a home MU football game, and to our pleasant surprise the was no excessive noise from rowdy fans. The tripadvisor prices are much lower than what I was charged, I think I may have been penalized because of the football game and a couple weddings. All in all I found the stay to be pleasing and would stay again without hesitation.

    « Little town charm »

    This hotel was very clean and comfortable really enjoyed our time at this hotel. The pool area was just beautiful the staff at this hotel makes you feel right at home. The breakfast was nice and had plenty of options

    « Reasonable, good staff »

    Stayed while visiting Miami University. Good front desk staff on check in and with directions to food and shopping in town. Good breakfast in morning with basic cereal, toast, waffles and fruit. Clean room, clean lobby and hallways. A bit noisy with some late night guests but somewhat expected in a university town. Would not hesitate to stay if in town again.

    « Friendly, Clean, Convenient »

    It's a comfortable , well kept hotel. Offers a good full breakfast, 24 hour pool and Jacuzzi. Walk to town. Close to all. A perfect fit for a visit to the town and Miami Univ. The double is two full size beds and not much other space so it's good for two but not very good for 3 especially if anyone snores!

    « Great service and convenient location »

    The service during my stay couldn't have been better, Although this isn't a "luxury property", it was comfortable and clean, and the location is ideal. Rate is high due to demand in Oxford. Id say this would be a good choice - would prefer a more upscale hotel, but can't complain and the staff is very good .

    « Very nice hotel »

    Hotel staff was extremely helpful at check-in. Our roll-away bed was already in the room when we arrived. I believe the rooms are recently renovated and looked very nice. Wish the shower head was a little higher up, i'm not tall (5'9) and had to bend down to wash my hair. Cookies at front desk are a nice touch. Didn't use the pool at all but had a group of friends that did. Will definitely be returning here next year.

    « Great and economical option for the Oxford area »

    I do not understand what people are complaining about- The hotel is great, and the staff were very friendly. Read my other reviews- Perspective: I like to stay in more upscale hotels often, but this was 1/3 options for the area. It is in a small college town and there's about 180 to 200 or so total hotel rooms for it(this hotel included). So, yes they spike the prices when demand goes's simple economics. It is a franchise location, locally owned. About the area: Do NOT believe your GPS/ google maps. There is not much here to do, there's a kroger and a handful of hole in the wall bars/restaurants, but alot more is located in hamilton. Your gps will say 25-30 minutes..I timed it door to door and it was a 15 minute drive to all the good places/restaurants. The staff was very nice- they all talked to me about 15-25 minutes each, and were very down to earth and friendly. I was in Oxford interviewing for a position, and they were very blunt and to the point about any questions I had regarding the area and surrounding towns. They were legitimately concerned when I told them about a few minor issues with my room(such as the alarm clock not working or a light bulb on a lamp blown out). The room was CLEAN and did not have any major mechanical issues. Yes the bathrooms are small, but how much time are you really going to spend in there? They had CRANKED the air conditioning (it was a really hot day outside) to greet me when I got into the room, so that was a nice touch. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were clean(unlike what previous reviewers have said). Only Con's I see to this place are: No Elevator(it's about 12 steps to the 2nd floor). Road noise if you stay on the west side (College kids think it's cool to rev up their loud muffler on a honda civic at 2 am).

    « Lots of things to like »

    We stayed after a day of shopping the 127 garage sales. This hotel deserves a 5 star rating for friendly staff, clean rooms, pool & hot tub & extras in room. Breakfast was pretty good & price not bad. If we stay again we will request a room on the first floor as the stairs were a little difficult for us. The only other problem was sleeping with the beautiful lights over the pool shining in the window. Overall a great stay. Happy to suggest it to others.

    « Repeat customer! »

    Close to campus, very friendly staff, clean room, and very nice breakfast. We've stayed 3 times now while taking care of details on Miami's campus. This will be our first choice each time we come back during the next four years!

    « A Gem in the Heart of Oxford, Ohio »

    Visited the area for daughter's college orientation at Miami University. Building is old but undergoing renovations. Room was super comfortable, clean and spacious even for a family of four, although there were just two of us who spent the night. Bathroom was not that big but shower head was invigorating with its gentle rain-like water drops. There was a microwave and a mini fridge handy for leftover restaurant food and for cold drinks. Breakfast was more than adequate, there was hot gravy for biscuit, a plus if you are looking for hot breakfast items. There were cold cereal, yoghurt, different flavors, cupcakes, Danish , bagel, white bread, oat meal, bananas, oranges, apples, hard boiled eggs, make your own waffle with all kinds of toppings. Coffee, milk, juice and much more. Evelyn, the housekeeper in charge of breakfast and housekeeping, was very attentive and kind to guests. Richard, at front desk, was very professional and accommodating with our request for a really late checkout. That afforded us to finish/complete all orientation sessions at the university without worries. It felt like home, we would stay again and again.

    « Great value for the cost »

    Very happy with everything at this hotel. Breakfast was more than I was expecting. Beds are very comfortable. You get a lot for the cost of the stay at a Best Western. Love this chain of hotels. Glad I can find Best Westerns in most cities I go to .

    « Very good hotel and exceptional staff ! »

    Been staying here for years while visiting my son at Miami University. Always clean, consistent and well priced. The staff is always friendly, polite and helpful, but recently went way above and beyond. I left my briefcase and laptop in the hotel and they turned the place upside down to locate it and ship it back to me overnight. Kathy and the team went way beyond my expectations to get me out of a bind and I highly recommend them and the Best Western Sycamore Inn.

    « Better than expected! »

    Turned out to be very conveniently located, easy access to campus and town, and was also very clean and friendly. We enjoyed a one night stay here for a campus visit. A couple blocks from uptown, very quiet, and all the needed amenities. Would stay here again.

    « Good bang for the buck »

    The hotel is under renovation, which is good. It's a bit dated. That said, it's very clean and the staff are absolutely lovely. The breakfast is a bit pedestrian (cold cereal, some sweet rolls, juice, banana's, etc) but you're really not there for the food. Good solid college town option. Plus, the staff is just LOVELY

    « Nice comfortable and quiet »

    This was my first stay at the Oxford Best Western. The location was good as I could walk three blocks up the hill and I was in the center of "uptown". The hotel room was newly renovated and comfortable. comfy bed, good shower, and nice staff

    « Always good »

    Have stayed here numerous times over past 6 years & never had a complaint. Have canceled and rescheduled my stays without a problem. Staff very pleasant when one guest asked where the bar was (duh - it's a Best Western)!

    « Reservations frequently LOST »

    Made reservations for Graduation May 13th - 15th and when I had called to confirm and add another room, they had lost my reservation. Luckily, when the manager of the Elms heard this, he found me a room as a frequent guest in Oxford. Still need one room and hotel has not called me back!

    « Recently renovated »

    The rooms were recently renovated so they were much nicer than when I stayed a couple years ago. The location is good, not too far of a walk from uptown and campus. They have the sweetest and most helpful staff!

    « Pleasant stay »

    This hotel is very affordable and convenient to the University, which was nice for our early morning start of a full day of meetings, etc. The hotel is being renovated, so will be very nice when complete soon. Our room was renovated and very nice. Beds were comfortable. Overall, a pleasant stay and will probably try to stay there for future college functions and visits in the next four years!

    « Renovating but desperately need work out room »

    I would only stay here if I was desperate only because they are renovating and still have the absolute worst exercise accommodations in Oxford, Ohio. They charge a PREMIUM for rooms whenever there is a big event on Miami's campus, and can't even sacrifice a bit of area to create a decent exercise room. it is literally a closet with 3 ancient pieces of equipment.

    « Clean--close option to campus »

    Stayed here for hockey week-end. It was better than I anticipated. Room was clean, bed was very comfortable, breakfast was acceptable, staff was very accommodating. Bathroom sink is outside the bathroom, so if one is trying to sleep-in in the morning and another is trying to clean up, it's a little awkward. It's a college town, so I expect hotels to be a bit banged up and more expensive than in another local. If in Oxford again, I would recommend. I don't like many of the hotel options in Oxford, but this worked out well for us and I would recommend to others.

    « Miami University visit »

    Stayed here the last weekend of January. Our room had just been fully renovated. Beds were comfortable. Wifi worked great. Front desk staff were really friendly. Breakfast was really good and fresh. This hotel pretty much located on the University campus so is a great option when visiting the U.

    « 24 hour pool and wonderful staff »

    We were there for only one night but the lady who welcomed us was so kind and gave us all a bottle of water and told us the pool was open 24 hours. My son was thrilled! The personnel they have working there are all so friendly and helpful. They are under construction but the kindness of the staff made it unnoticeable.

    « OK Accomodations »

    They are currently in a renovation of this hotel so some of this may change. Sound insulation is lacking between rooms, the hall, and the floor above. Room fixtures need replacement. Breakfast was adequate, but no eggs/bacon/sausage. Seems to have a small but well-equipped gym and pool. In room-starved Oxford, it's an "meh" hotel that gives you a place to sleep really close to campus at a much lower price than other hotels. Hopefully, the remodel will bring this place up to par.

    « Like Coming Home »

    Through a major renovation, the Best Western Sycamore staff has been just wonderful! We are family to them and they to us. So every time we stay there it's like coming home. And the new beds are great!

    « Exceptional Staff »

    The staff at Best Western Sycamore are what makes this hotel amazing. They are genuinely friendly and caring and strive to make your stay pleasant. I would highly recommend this hotel. It is a convenient walk to restaurants and nightlife near Miami University.

    « Great place »

    My stay at the Best Western was fantastic. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful at all hours. I would highly recommend staying at this hotel. The rooms are clean and newly renovated. I will definitely come back on my business next trip.

    « Location, Location, Location »

    The title says it all. This location is perfect for a stay at Miami university. While the room, Breakfast, and staff are all satisfactory, it's the perfect location which keeps me coming back. You can easily walk to the game or uptown and don't need to drive. Even the dorms are easily accessible. Really can't go wrong at a fair price.

    « College Visit »

    Spent the night here with my daughter and had a very good experience. The hotel is in the process of renovating and you would think that there would be more dirt and mess, there was not! It is very clean and well kept, good sign when a hotel is renovating! Close to everything and the staff was exceptional!

    « Great Service »

    The Best Western Sycamore Inn has a fantastic staff. Everyone was friendly and helpful. When we arrived the front desk staff was very proud to tell us about the newly remodeled dining area.We were greeted each day by each member of the housekeeping team as we passed in the hall. The front desk was very helpful with all questions. During a local power outage the Maintenance man even offered to help carry our luggage to the second floor.

    « College Visit »

    Stayed here when visiting daughter at Miami, Ohio. Great location ! Everyone was extremely helpful and kind. Place is nice enough and they are remodeling. Would like to always stay here when visiting Miami.

    « One night for a Tournament »

    Stayed at this hotel for one night while at Miami Univ (OH) for a tournament. There were 3 guys in the room which was spacious and they were really good about getting us a roll-away bed. Great location in relation to the campus and a pretty good breakfast in the morning. Didn't get to utilize the pool however it looked nice.

    « No frills »

    Okay hotel if you're looking for a place to lay your head. However, I don't think the value is worth the price. Rooms are so small that the sink is in the main room. A musty smell is waiting to greet you in your room as well. Rooms come with a mini fridge and a microwave. Pool looks nice and the staff was friendly. It won't wow you, but if you need a place close to campus and you don't care about luxury, this place is tolerable.

    « One of the nicest surprises!! »

    Clean, new and extremely friendly, the Best Western in Oxford is an unexpected surprise. Great and expansive breakfast, beautiful pool, new and very clean rooms and the friendliest staff we've encountered in many nights of travel. And a special "shout out" to the maintenance guy who even offered his Miami University hat to my son. Only place I will stay when visiting. Keep up the great work!!!

    « Move in day for my freshman »

    The hotel is conveniently located to Miami University. Although the hotel is a little outdated, it was clean and quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was the standard fare you would find at any other BW. For the price, this place is an excellent option for your visit to Oxford.
