    « Overnight stop »

    Very clean and nice hotel. We just stopped for 1 night. Kids liked the swimmingpool. Breakfast was OK and the staff was helpfull. Next time I will certainly come back here when we are in the area.....

    « Really reasonable hotel with great amenities »

    We stayed at the hotel from Friday to Sunday for a friends wedding and upgraded to a Jacuzzi suite for a very modest charge. The hotel is very well maintained and in a quiet setting. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We very enjoyed our stay. The pool is especially nice, it's heated with a hot tub and great views of the grounds. While is we didn't use the fitness center it looked very nice and many other guest were taking advantage of the wide selection of equipment. While the menu is limited, we were presently surprised how good the food was at the Nite Train lounge and reasonably priced the drinks were.

    « 2nd stay here »

    Hotel was very clean in all areas, especially the room. Breakfast offered a good variety of things to eat. Staff friendly and helpful. This is my 2nd stay here at this hotel and will probably not be my last. Very convenient as it is just off the interstate exit.

    « Good hotel »

    My wife and I had a pleasant experience at this hotel. The Hotel has big parking, but it has potholes in it. The staff was friendly. The food was average, and the breakfast was the same every morning with a small variety. The room was clean and tidy, and they have excellent housekeeping service. The Internet is free and works well. For the money, one pays they offer good services.

    « It's too hot, »

    Ac didn't work.. cigarette smoke came in window from outside. Being the Ac didn't work, we opened the window to get the cool evening breeze. Only to have the bar patrons and the hotel staff smoking below us, we were on the2nd floor, cigarette smoke come into our room. When I mentioned it, only thing I got, ?I make note of it?. Very disappointed.

    « Disgusting weekend at Grand Victorian Inn »

    My unpleasant experience started at the entrance doorway, where there were several people smoking next to the door. Next, the musty stale smell as I entered the lobby was also unsettling. My room had the same musty stale smoke odor. When I checked the bed linens with an ultraviolet light the result was disgusting. There were numerous body fluid stains all around the bed skirt on both beds and one of the bedspreads had numerous fluid stains. If the reservation had not been pre-paid by my employer I would have immediately left the property and stayed at the Hampton Inn nearby. My previous experiences with Best Western have been mixed with one very positive in Haifa Israel and one bad in Des Moines Iowa. I will do anything within my control not to stay at another Best Western.

    « Great experience! Would definitely recommend staying here! »

    The hotel has a very friendly staff, the rooms both guest rooms and banquet rooms were nice and well kept. Liz and the other girl with the grey/purple hair from the front desk were very informative and helpful when we needed things. The one housekeeper was super friendly and had such an upbeat personality I wish I would have caught her name so I could mention her by name. Wish more hotels would have staff like this one Though things in the hotel were great, it was a little odd about the front doors, I went out late at night and when I came back in I noticed the doors were not locked nor did you need your key to get back in. While traveling and staying in different types of hotels and knowing Night Auditors from other hotels and being a former hotel employee myself, I know there is not a lot of other staff on hand overnight so not have at least a key to enter was interesting.

    « Excellent experience »

    Very neat, clean establishment. Room, bed, etc. well appointed and comfortable. Was surprised with the size of the bathroom - lots of room to move around, extra space for storage of items, etc. The only problem/complaint I had was the fact that the front doors do not open automatically. Can make it difficult when pushing a valet card or carrying luggage.

    5
    « Excellent Hotel for excellent price »

    No complaints except just don't eat at the restaurant as it is overpriced and not good. It is the one that is in the bar area. Other than the food in the bar area, everything else was superior!! There are lots of local eateries to choose from or you can also get delivery to your hotel room.

    « The best inn to stop at along Route 17 »

    I've stayed at this hotel quite a few times and it's a gem. I go to Toronto about 4 times a year and this stop is usually about halfway for me. The price is fair. The staff is superb. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. The property is quiet and far enough away from the highway where you don't ever hear road noise. Even though there aren't many dining and shopping options that close to the hotel, Horseheads is about 30 minutes west of here and there are a lot more options, but it's definitely worth the commute there and back to stay here. This hotel is definitely excellent and worth every cent. The one thing I will mention that might be confusing to people who are unfamiliar with the area is that the hotel is actually in Pennsylvania, but it's off of New York Route 17 at Exit 61. The route dips in to Pennsylvania for about 2 minutes and that's where the hotel is. But like I said earlier, this hotel can't be beat. I will return again and again

    Had a great room, very clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. Facilities were great too! One of the best equipped gyms in a hotel, and the hot tub was HOT!! Already planning my next stay, and looking forward to it!

    « Mini vacation »

    Great hotel, friendly staff enjoyed our time there. Breakfast had a good variety and the area was clean and stocked. Room had a couple of repairs done that we could see but didn't affect our stay. The room was quite large with a separate room that had a fridge, microwave, coffee maker and sink. Hotel had a quiet time so catching up on sleep was not a problem.

    outstanding everything :) We had a wonderful conference- accommodations, food, staff, 5 star on all of it ! The location suited us perfectly since it was a NYS regional conference, very easy access off the interstate.

    « Nice Hotel »

    A nice hotel in a really old building, decor reflects old Victorian era. Rooms are clean, but be prepared that the building is a bit old, so the smell of old wood and stuff will be there. Nice lobby, room and mirrors; if you are looking for some ghostly stuff, this hotel can help u make the perfect video!

    « Great stay at this location »

    Room was nice, staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, and breakfast was great! Quick trip for a hospital visit, and the staff was incredibly caring, lovely and accommodating. Thank you so much for making this a little easier!

    « Nice place to stay »

    My daughter and I were at this facility prior to my surgery at Robert Packard hospital. The desk clerks were very kind upon learning I was having surgery , wishing me well. Not only was the restaurant menu full of good choices, the food was plentiful and tasty. The waitress saw to our every need. I would recommend this Best Western if anyone is staying in Sayre, PA

    « Beautiful hotel »

    This is a wonderful place to stay in Sayre, PA. I was passing through on a business trip, I got in around 1am and was greeted by Liz at the front counter. She was very friendly, polite and professional. I booked a king room and the bed was huge. The room itself is large too. Bathroom was newer minus the shower which had a more retro look. The shower functioned properly and had great temperature and water pressure. Everything was clean, which is really all I ask for. The included breakfast is pretty basic, it did offer bacon which was a nice option. The eggs weren't very appealing however if I had some salsa to add to it, they probably would have been better. I would stay here again if I have the pleasure of passing through.

    « Amazing »

    This place was so family friendly! Warm on a very snowy day! The pool and hot tub were very pleasant. The restaurant downstairs was great for the grown ups to unwind for a couple hours! Definitely cannot wait to do this again!

    « Brunch after grandson's Baptism »

    We had a breakfast brunch after my grandson's Baptism for 24 people on 2/18/18. We had a private room, food was excellent, and the wait staff (Debbie) was very attentive without being intrusive. I have had 3 other events like this at the Best Western Victorian Inn and everything was perfect. Tracy Is the banquet manager and she ensures that you have everything the way you want it and that your event goes off without a hitch. I highly recommend this facility for any family/corporate event!

    « Great!!!! »

    Great!!! This hotel was close to restaurants and shopping but far enough away for the quiet and peaceful experience. Very clean and excellent staff. My wife and I will definitely be staying here again.

    « Great Place with Friendly Staff! »

    I do plenty of work for Guthrie Health Care. When I'm anywhere within 35min of this place I make sure I stay at this hotel. Rates are good, staff is friendly, they have plenty of parking, rooms are very clean and they have a Pub in the hotel.

    « Horrible bed, worst night sleep ever »

    Bed springs were sticking in my back all night long, hardly slept at all. Although the rest of the hotel was above average, the bed really ruined it my total experience. Won't consider best western ahead of the competition in the future.

    5
    « Wonderful stay »

    A last minute decision to stay here due to a death in the family. The staff was very friendly and accommodating to my needs. The hotel itself had everything I could ask for - nice bar/lounge, fitness center (with racketball & basketball courts, indoor pool, full weight room and sauna in the locker room), very clean, spacious room and a quiet environment. I will definitely stay here should I need a hotel room next time I visit!

    « Not a 3 star property »

    Dont know if stars are based on amenities but this is not a 3 star property...I would say 2 and 2.5 at the most. Aging, needs modification and would be nice before you book that the pool and whirlpool arent in service. Instead there was a sign at check in. They upgraded us to a jacuzzi room but the water pressure in the tubs there are so weak that the water started coolingmoff by the time i filled the tub high enough and also because of that if you expect a nice shower forget it...complained one other time in another room and nothing was done. Mattress was too squishy too

    4
    « Quick trip over night »

    It was a very nice place for the price. They have a restaurant bar in the lobby, allowing you to stay in and not having to drive around looking for a place to eat. The breakfast was very good at no charge. It wasnt your typical free breakfast, they had a very good selection with very good coffee. The workout area was also larger than most places.

    « Poor Mattress, Carpeting Gave Allergies, Poor Lighting in Rooms »

    Really felt like someone beamed us back to the Titanic's staterooms and not in a good way. Lighting was poor, decor was void minus a mirror, the carpeting made our allergies go nuts, and the mattress made it nearly impossible to sleep. Although quiet and clean, we didn't care for this hotel.

    4
    « Casino Trip »

    This is a reasonably priced hotel. Large rooms, microwave and refrigerator. The rooms and hotel are clean and the staff are very friendly. One exit from Tioga Downs Casino and a much better room rate than the casino hotel.

    « Good value »

    If you are in the valley this hotel is a good value. You get a clean room and a hot breakfast for the money. The staff was very friendly from the front desk to the cleaning service to the bartender. Great job.

    « Good Value, Nice Hotel »

    Overall value was amazing. Best hotel in the area. We were traveling through the area on the way to family, and admittedly, there are no nice hotels in this region. This one was a real surprise. Nice exterior and nice lobby. The staff was friendly and the hot breakfast good, given there is not a really nice diner around. Would definitely stay there again.

    « Holiday Homecoming »

    I needed a place to stay for one night on my way home for the holiday as I was attending a Christmas party and and not want to risk driving. Best Western Grand Victorian Inn Sayre provided the perfect stopover.

    « Wonderful stay »

    This hotel is very nice when you first walk in. The staff is polite. Our room was very clean. You can tell housekeeping pays attention to detail. The breakfast was great and the room for it was very large. We were on the top floor and it was perfectly quiet. The older hotels seem to be more sound proof.

    « Basic bare bones hotel - good group rate. »

    Solid hotel for our particular stay for local wrestling tournament. Parents/Coaches took advantage of on site restaurant while kids used pool and workout facilities. Nothing fancy but enough to justify good rates.

    « Great hotel »

    I needed a hotel near the hospital and this is only a mile away. The staff was very friendly, very nice rooms for a reasonable cost especially if you are a AAA member. I got a great night sleep and a very good breakfast at no charge. I highly recommend this hotel if you will be in Sayre, PA.

    « What's not to like? »

    I am usually a person who prefers to stay at Hampton Inn, but the HI close to the hospital was sold out. I decided to try The Grand Victorian/Best Western in Sayre. I was pleasantly surprised. While it is not fancy, the hotel is comfortable and clean. The staff members are kind and helpful. I would certainly stay again in the future.

    « great hotel »

    Stayed here Thanksgiving night. Had a late check in and the staff was ready for me when I arrived, they were great! The room was well appointed and spacious, most importantly, it was, along with the bathroom, very clean. The bed was quite comfortable and the room was quiet. The included breakfast was well presented and offered good variety. The dining room was comfortable, bright and clean. The room rate was very competitive. When in the area this hotel will be my first choice.

    « Great stop over »

    This hotel was wonderful as we just stopped on our way through to our final destination. The room was clean, hotel staff helpful, breakfast great and we only wish we stayed longer to use the gym....maybe next time.

    « Decent stay. »

    Everything was decent, nothing exceptional, but worth the money. Food was ok in the restaurant, probably would eat somewhere else if I stay there again. Room was clean, heat was out of control in the room I was in.

    « Very comfortable »

    The staff was so happy and friendly. I received a courtesy call shortly after arriving in the room. The room was spacious and very clean. The jacuzzi was wonderful. The bed and pillows were the best. I wanted to buy the pillow. The TV worked well. There was a directory and a guide on the TV so you could navigate the TV. FABULOUS!

    « Great place to stay »

    I really thought this hotel was wonderful for the price. The only thing that I would know to chreck on for next time is the temperature of the Jacuzzi. It was very cool when we were in it. Not what I was hoping for. Everything else was wonderful!

    I travel a lot for work and this was the first time staying at this Best Western. Easy to find, right off the highway. Staff was very friendly, hotel was clean & comfortable. Has a bar/restaurant on site but did not visit either on this trip. Has a nice free continental breakfast.

    We were on our way to Atlantic City and was a night stay over and booked the Best Western, we found it to be a great hotel, clean, great staff. rooms were really good, our stay included a breakfast, enjoyed it, overall a great place to stay.

    « Great Value »

    The Sayre Best Western rooms are large, comfortable, clean, and well equipped. The value of our stay was excellent. Location is also excellent. The front desk attendants were friendly, polite, helpful, and truly happy to help us. We only had one complaint. The breakfast was poor. The attendant was nowhere to be found. The coffee was cold. The garbage cans were full. Everything else at the hotel was superior.

    « Best Western Sayre Penna »

    We are pleased with our stay. The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. The breakfast was good. Indoor pool and hot tub was clean and relaxing. Easy access from the hyway and plenty of parking. This hotel should be listed as a Best Western Premier property.

    Best breakfast, swimming pool, customer service, bed and clean room. Had to stop over to sayre before heading back to buffalo and they are accomodating for a last minute room. The bar is right beside the hotel, hot breakfast with waffles and a very nice pool and sauna room.

    « Wake-UP »

    The only issue was the room phone, it did not work, the replacement did not work, so the wake up call in the morning was ineffective. Maybe part of daily room service should include a check that the phone works correctly!

    « Best Western Sayre PA »

    My wife and I have stayed here for 5 years now, each time for about a week. The hotel is well maintained and the rooms are comfortable. The staff is about as good as they get. The breakfast is well done and hot with eggs, breakfast meat, cereal, waffles and lots of extras. Checking in and out was easy and quick. The swimming pool is very relaxing and the have a spa attached.

    « Surprisingly nice »

    Surprisingly nice for the very reasonable price I paid. The exterior garden is really beautiful. Nice décor inside if a little shabby in places. Very nice and helpful staff. They got me a rollaway bed at the last minute and gave me a new key (after checking my ID) when I left my key in the room. Clean, comfortable room. Breakfast average. Would definitely stay there again.

    This was my second stay here. My son and I go to the Twin Tier Comi-con every year in Elmira, NY. To me even though 20 miles away, this is the best value, amenities, staff and in the region. If I could stay at this quality everytime I traveled, Life would be great. Will definitely be back again.

    « Great location for our wedding! »

    My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Best Western a few weeks ago. Not only did we have the reception there, we also had a block of rooms booked for family. Everyone loved their rooms, breakfast, and friendly staff. The reception was great! We worked with Tracy, and she made everything as easy as possible. Our guests are still talking about the food, and the decorations. With such a big family, the Best Western was the perfect place to host such a large guest list. We couldn't have picked a better place to celebrate our wedding! Thank you to all the staff at BW, including kitchen, housekeeping, fitness, and front desk! (My dog also LOVED that he got treats. Yay for pet-friendly!)

    « NOT BAD FOR A BEST WESTERN »

    Decent accommodations. Definitely not a corporate hotel as there were tons of contractors smoking outside the main lobby. Had a mysterious $30 charge on my credit card, but Discover took care of it. There is a really no other chain to stay at in the area unless you want to pay big bucks at the Hampton.

    « loved this place »

    I would definately stay here again and highly recommend!!!! Love the decor and the look of the "old,luxurious" hotel feel. Definately an " adult hotel" not one where the newly of age come and party. The double beds are not huge, but very very comfortable. Breakfast was good, the pool was very nice but did not like the fact that you had to sign a towel out and in at the pool. Also the housekeeping staff might want to take a look behind the beds, and vacuum there. We found sunflower seeds on the floor, and had been there for a while. No huge issues, but simple things that can be taken care of.

    5
    « Great staff and comfortable rooms »

    The BWGV has been a favorite stay over for us for many years. The staff is friendly all through the hotel from the front desk to the lounge. The hotel has a noise curfew that helps keep it quiet come bedtime even when they have large groups. Beds are very comfortable!

    « Needs attention! »

    The room was grungy. Yellow lights and grimy carpets. The bathroom saved the room because it was good and clean but the rest of the room needs improvement. Its time for the hotel to be updated. The breakfast though was well done, very nice room bright and cheery and good variety.

    « I would stay again. »

    My parents and I stayed here for one night while we were in town. I think they could use new mattresses, but it was clean and the staff is very friendly. We ate at the train stop lounge which didn't have an extensive menu, but was quite tasty. I appreciated the continental breakfast. Make your own waffles, a yogurt topping bar, eggs, sausage, little donuts, bagels, fresh fruit. Definitely nicer than the run of the mill continental breakfasts I've had other places.

    Beautiful hotel. Great breakfast. Had problem with toilet and were moved to new room. Staff were helpful and friendly. Rooms were really nice, with fridge and microwave. Pool and hot tub. All in all a great experience. Price was very reasonable, especially for the quality.

    « Need lights in bathroom »

    The hotel was fine and very busy at check in. It needs some major updates and some serious landscaping. The trees in the parking lot were in serious needs of pruning. The breakfast was the typical cold eggs and some mystery meat. You could hardly see in the bathroom mirror to put on makeup or to shave due to lack of lights. The mattress was hard and uncomfortable.

    « It was a nice hotel except for the beds which were very uncomfortable »

    It was a nice hotel, very convenient to the places we wanted to go. However,the beds were not comfortable but we were only there for one night. The staff were very nice and helpful and the hotel was very clean.

    « Not worth »

    Very average kind hotel with nothing very attractive. The biggest problem was there was no smile at any of staff it looks like they are not interested at all. During check in or check out not even courtesy to say hello or welcome. Breakfast was big chaos none of the staff member seems to be interested in helping. Though it's quite place but still I would suggest to look for another property at same price.

    « Great experience- will come back »

    My husband and I stayed here on our way to Letchworth State Park. We weren't expecting much for the price and we were very happily surprised. The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. The fitness area is basically a true fitness center, not just a treadmill and weights. We were impressed that there were two racquetball courts, as this is something we often enjoy when vacationing, but don't find in hotels, just full-scale resorts. The pool and hot tub looked clean and nice although we didn't have the opportunity to use them. The room was well-appointed, attractive and clean. The bathroom was a nice size, as was the room. Will definitely make it a point to come back.

    « A 'lucky' find! »

    Not knowing ahead of time where I'd pull off for the night until moments prior I found this gem. I was looking for another one. Great looking lobby I noticed right away! Due to this I didn't think it would be in my budget. The friendly lady working have me a price that was good and I choose to stay vs find the cheaper one I was searching for. With the pool and hottub being down for the day I was there I got a room with a jet tub. Wow!! What a great room! Lots of space, very clean and well kept. Extremly quiet room from and wonderful bed. The tub and bathroom were both great. The halls were very sharp looking. And the room for breakfast was huge and well done. Nice selections and good quality!

    « Clean and Courteous »

    Very clean hotel. Staff is great. Rooms aware updates and clean. Wifi included. We stayed 2 nights 2 years in a row and will go back again next year. The in house restaurant was fairly priced and good food.

    « Exceptional Wedding Experience »

    Colton and I just wanted to say thank you to all of the incredible employees at the Best Western Grand Victorian Inn. You truly helped our day run smoothly and everything was absolutely perfect. Your staff has an attention to detail that left us feeling super comfortable and I knew we were in good hands. From the months of preparation, to the rehearsal dinner, to the wedding, you were amazing. Thank you for "holding our hands" and helping to guide us through the planning process. We couldn't have pulled it off so wonderfully without Tracy Sutton and the fantastic staff. We have received nothing but compliments from every single guest that attended our special day. Our rooms were superb, very clean, with fluffy soft pillows that you just melt right into. We loved everything about our experience! From the bottom of our hearts, thank you! Mr. and Mrs. Lawton!

    « What a welcome place to stay while visiting Ithaca College. »

    We were trying to book a hotel in nearby Ithaca, NY. As it turned out, Cornell University was having its moving in weekend when we were going for a tour at Ithaca College on August 17th and 18th. This Best Western was a blessing in disguise, not only significantly cheaper, $75/night directly through Best Westerns sight, hotels right in Ithaca avg $150-200/night. It was a relatively short ride to Ithaca, about 35-40 minutes, which we knew when booking the hotel. Because of this we were able to stay two nights instead of one, and were able to visit the college for a second day of tours. It was a very nice hotel for the area, rooms were nice, beds comfortable, A/C worked very well, nice pool hot tub and fitness center. Oh I almost forgot, the Continental Breakfast was excellent and amazing, among the choices for food; make your own waffles, bagels, toast, muffins, cereal, milk, juice, fruit, eggs, sausage, and outstanding coffee. This hotel is right near the highway, nearby was a gas station/mini mart, as well as 3-4 restaurants. We didn't try the restaurant/pub inside the hotel, but it gets great reviews here on TripAdvisor. It really out stay enjoyable as well as affordable.

    Beds were comfortable, room was clean, breakfast was very good for a continental, pool and fitness center close at 9p on the dot! But if you are an early bird, it opens at 6a. Lounge food is basically a bar menu, but service was great. Front desk was a bit overwhelmed with only 1 person on a weekend. Overall, it was a good stay.

    The reservation process and welcome when we arrived was easy, pleasant and customer-friendly - we called the hotel directly - Penny was awesome! Room, pool, hot tub, full breakfast, distance to other shops and attractions, - all within 10 miles - some 1-2 miles. Gas and small store directly across street and parking at hotel was great. Location one short turn off the main highway. Would stay there anytime!

    We were there for 7 days, everyone was very nice and helpful, from the front desk, to housekeeping to the restaurant. We were greeted when we arrived and every time we left the hotel. The rooms were very clean, beds were comfortable. It was close to Highway 17 and I-86. Due to the flooding the bridge going east was washed out. If people are interested in the Tioga Casino I-86 can get you there. We had cool weather 40's to low 70's due to the resent rains.

    When I checked out at 5 am I asked Liz if she had any coffee made and she asked if I would like cream and sugar. I then went to my truck to liad my stuff and drive back up to the front door only to see Liz standing outside with my coffee. Never have I ever had that type of service in all my years of staying in hotels around the world. Thanks Liz

    « Good value, Excellent Breakfast but Tattered Facility »

    The room was a good value at $71 and had an excellent breakfast, among the best we've seen. Having said that the facility is clearly beyond the hey-day of its prime. Exterior of building and parking lot are in need of maintenance and upkeep. Interior is worn and chair in room had big tear due to wear. This would be easy to fix but for whatever reason is not a concern of BW parent or the local owner. Still, all in all, worth the price.

    We stayed one night to break up a trip from Buffalo to Englewood NJ. The woman at the front desk 10pm was pleasant and provided effortless check in; and out (express check out). The room was clean and comfortable (rm in the 400's) not near the ice machine. Glad to have had the refrigerator. The pool was closed for a late night swim but we did enjoy it in the morning before a full breakfast with something for everyone. We really wanted to stay on our return trip but we went a different route.

    Traveling from Michigan to Long Island, we took the scenic route on I-86. This Best Western had decent pricing and located perfectly for an overnight. We were encouraged by reviews and have another to add that is positive. When you check out and reflect while going up the road about your stay, we found no negatives. This hotel has a warm staff, clean comfortable rooms, nicely decorated facility, and a very good breakfast to jump start the day. Whatever management and staff are doing, keep it up, you have a winner.

    « Excellent Hotel at an affordable price »

    This is an excellent hotel; however, I can't quite put my finger on it, but I think that this place might have been something else or maybe it was just another brand name hotel and Best Western bought it. It might have always been a Best Western, though, but there is something "different" about it. It's not necessarily a bad "difference" either. Anyway, one thing for sure is that you can't beat the room prices. I looked at prices in Elmira, which weren't as bad as compared to room prices in Horseheads, Corning, or Painted Post. The prices in those place are quite high. But not only were the prices high in those three places, most if not all of the hotels in those three places were booked up as well - as in no rooms available this week. I think it may be because of the race track opening at Watkins Glen, but I am not sure. But getting back to this hotel. It was well worth the price even though it was about 35 miles from some of the tourist attractions that we wanted to visit. That distance isn't bad when most of it is along I-86. The hotel has quite a few amenities - an indoor heated swimming pool, a complimentary, decent help yourself breakfast buffet (which had all the usual items, and the items that needed to be fresh were indeed fresh), an on-site, reasonably priced, and decent restaurant/bar that had what I would say a very limited menu, 2 elevators, and a pretty well stocked fitness center that unbelievably had 2 racquetball courts one of which doubles as a single basketball court. My sons and I took advantage of the racquetball court. The fitness center has a name - Express Fitness that seems to have non-hotel guests using. There is also a tuxedo rental business which seemed a bit odd - Rockwells. And there were several meeting/banquet rooms. The hotel grounds are nicely maintained. That is, of course, except for the unused delapitated outdoor basketball court that was overgrown with weeds and small trees. It doesn't look like it had been used in over 15 years, maybe longer. Oh, but there is ample parking. Check-in was fast and easy and all the front desk personnel were friendly and each greeted us every time we past the front desk. And since the hotel is pet friendly we brought our 2 dogs. At only $10/pet/day, it was the cheapest pet fee that I have ever encountered. Upon entering the hotel with our dogs, the front desk person offered many treats for our 4 legged friends. That was a nice touch. The room itself is not the largest that we have stayed in, but it was adequate. The double beds seemed to be too old and are in need of being replaced. Queen sized beds would be a positive addition. The refrigerator came in handy, but it was noisy, and there was also a microwave. The flat screen TV was pretty good, too. We brought our own pillows as we usually do, but theirs were ok. And the a/c worked just great and wasn't too noisy. The bathroom was a good size, too, however either the exhaust fan was either not working or there wasn't one, we could not tell. The water pressure in the shower was perfect and the water came out hot when I needed it to be hot. We also ate in the restaurant the 1st night, and I must say that even though the bartender doubled as the waitress, she did an excellent job. Upon check-in we received a 10% discount coupon for the restaurant for each day of our stay. Even though the menu didn't have a lot of choices, the items that we chose were quite delicious. And it looked like the bar patrons were enjoying themselves too. The hallways were quiet the 1st 3 nights as there weren't many people staying at the hotel. The last night, however, was a little different with people singing Happy Birthday just after midnight. Thankfully the hotel enforces an 11pm quiet time, so that proved to be sufficient. The last amenity that I'd like to mention is the indoor heated pool. It is a decent sized pool, and there is a separate jacuzzi. We only used the pool one night as the other evenings seemed to be too crowded. The one odd thing about the pool was its location. To get to it, you had the take the elevator to the basement, walk through part of the fitness center, and then walk up a flight of stairs. This might be a bit of a problem for the handicapped person. You also had to check in at the fitness desk before using the pool. Check out was fast and friendly which was no surprise. After talking with the front desk clerks upon check-out, we learned that the hotel is used for multiple gatherings ? weddings, proms, etc. Maybe that was the ?difference? that I spoke about earlier. All in all, we were very satisfied with this hotel and we would stay in the hotel if we were to be in the area again.

    « Great Hotel Without The Easy Of A Good Pool & Hot Tub »

    I would rank this hotel high if it were not for the difficulty of access to the pool and hot tub. For a handicap person or someone who does not like running up and down stairs to change or go to the bathroom, this pool and hot tub is located in a horrible location. I booked this room to celebrate our 45th anniversary for the hot tub! I am 64 and have had two knee replacements and I cannot climb up two flights of stairs easily. I also would not like to have to change downstairs and climb upstairs to get to the hot tub and then climb down them again in a wet suit to change while having someone sitting at a desk watching my difficulty.

    « Romantic Getaway Night ... Meh »

    Was nice to get away for a night, but the romance package was a bit of a bust. They were out of champagne (didn't really care but was part of package) and the chocolates they gave us had expired. Room was fairly clean, but mattress and linens were a bit under the expectations for what we paid for the room. There is a window between the bathroom and bedroom which is odd. Breakfast was quite good, except for cheap paper plates. Staff was professional and helpful.

    « Good Access to Watkins Glen and Seneca Lake »

    Second year which we have stayed here to go to the IMSA race at Watkins Glen International raceway. It is about a 40 minute drive to the racetrack but the hotel is much less expensive than the hotels closer to the track. There are other races at the track including NASCAR and IndyCar where this would be a less expensive place to stay. Free breakfast is great and their parking lot is quite large so I could find safe parking for my sports car. We plan to stay here everytime we go the the racetrack.

    « Get A Lot for the Low Rate »

    I stayed at this hotel for one night to break up a long drive from upstate NY to Williamsburg, VA. Front desk was very friendly and helpful. This hotel is pretty large for a Best Western "roadside" hotel - because honestly I could not see any other reason to spend a lot of time in Sayre, PA. I chose this hotel for a number of reasons - the $88 rate, free breakfast, the gym and the onsite restaurant. Most hotel gyms are equipped with a couple of cardio machines and maybe some dumb bells. The gym at this Best Western is fully stocked with free weights, a full rack of dumb bells, weight machines and cardio equipment. Honestly, I think it's a gym open to the public but hotel guests can use it for free. The one downside to the gym - the equipment looks like it was donated from an abandoned prison - all of it has paint falling off and a lot of rust. While this did not affect my workout - it's definitely very old and worn equipment. I like staying in these type of hotels for one or two nighters because of the free breakfast - I don't need to pay $30 for eggs, toast and cereal. But what was nice at this Best Western - the restaurant on site for dinner. I didn't want to get fast food or order a pizza. So I went to the restaurant, had a seat at the bar and ordered a burger, with a side salad and a nice touch they have a selection of local craft beers on tap - bartender even gave me the remote to one of the TV's so I could choose what to watch while eating. Overall the hotel is traditionally decorated - a little old but did not feel worn. Hotel was clean, room had a fridge and a microwave - I think the mattress could use updating - it was soft but not pillow top mattress soft - more like - I've seen my share of guests over the years soft. If I were to ever stay in Sayre, PA again (highly doubtful) I'd probably return to this Best Western.

    « The Shining »

    Stayed at a Best Western recently in Vinton LA and found it pleasant. Coming through on business I decided to try the chain again so I booked the Grand Victorian. I pulled up and immediately questioned if i wanted to stay there. Parking lot empty and entrance was badly in need of repair with visible mold. After checking online for a room at the Hampton Inn which was booked I decided to go in and check this hotel out. First thing I noticed when I walked into the lobby other than a darkly lit space was a mildew smell. Still I pressed on and checked in. Counter staff wasn't un pleasant but also at the same time not very welcoming either. I went to my room via the dirty elevator and walked down the dark hall like a scene from the Shining. Room wasn't dirty but very worn and old. Gloomy like the rest of the hotel. I sat on the bed and booked a room down the street at the comfort inn. I walked out immediately and didn't even ask for a refund. I wanted out. I don't know what the other reviewers are used to in a hotel but they are way off for this property. Maybe it was nice 20 years ago but that time has long left this place.

    We stayed at the Best Western in Sayre, Pennsylvania while our granddaughters played in a softball tournament in Horseheads. Not the most convenient since the fields were 20-25 minutes away. This is not the fault of the hotel, just a quick comment. The room was clean, the breakfast was good and the room was very large, which isn't always the case. The fitness room was well stocked with equipment. The staff was very accommodating for us. We asked to go into the meeting room to be able to play cards and they had no problem with that request.

Breakfast in the morning was good, offered something for everyone but ran out of waffle batter early and also the sweets that were offered. The only complaint I had, is that the chlorine smell from the pool, assaulted you when you came in the front door and it was strong in the bar/restaurant area. When we asked, they said that you get to the pool thru the bar/restaurant. I was impressed of how clean the hotel was, from the outside, to the lobby, to the room.

The registration clerk was accommodating in our requests for rooms close to the elevator. Both rooms appeared to have been remodeled in the not too distant past, and were clean and fresh. We enjoyed dinner in the inhouse lounge which with entries that were surprisingly good for hotel fare. Included breakfast was typical and adequate for a day starter. Although we did not take advantage of, the fitness facilities appeared to be significant.

    « No Adequate Accessible Pool/Hot Tub Access »

    Overall, we were very happy with our stay (on two separate nights) at the Grand Victorian Inn. The rooms were comfortable, clean and well equipped. The staff were all pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was, as with most hotels, sadly lacking in protein - but served in the most pleasant hotel breakfast room we've ever seen. Backing onto the beautiful gardens, we watched the flowers grow and the rabbits play. Beautiful! However, because two members of my party of four are slightly handicapped, we are mindful of a facility's accessible features. This hotel was disappointing in three areas. 1. The closest handicap parking space was too far from the door for my companions to walk. 2. The front doors are manual, not automatic. At times, they were difficult for them to manage. 3. Our biggest complaint related to the pool/hot tub access. This was a holiday for us and, being lovers of a good dunk in a hot tub, we chose this hotel specifically for its advertised hot tub. On arrival, we were informed that the pool and hot tub were located in the basement. Fine. We took the elevator from our rooms to the basement and entered the fitness area. The gentleman on duty informed us that the pool and hot tub were back up a full and long flight of metal stairs. We were agog! When I asked about handicap access, he said we'd have to go back upstairs by elevator and walk through the lobby and the public restaurant in order to reach the pool. We were dumbfounded. There is no way elderly and handicapped people will be comfortable walking through a public restaurant in their bathing suits. We said thanks, but no thanks. When we mentioned this experience to a couple of other guests the next morning, they - neither handicapped nor elderly - agreed with us completely, saying they wouldn't use that kind of access either. For this reason, I plan to look for another hotel should we pass through Sayre again.

The first room we were given someone smoked in and the girl at the desk changed it very quickly and was very sorry about it. We had a room with a balcony and it was perfect for our really nice spring weather. The hotel is right next to a major highway and we were worried about noise but once the door was closed it was very quiet. We did not use the pool but it was a really nice pool area and exercise facility. The breakfast room was very large and very nice with large windows looking into the back yard, very nice for the morning. Any of the staff we saw or spoke to was very friendly.

    I stayed here to see family and I had just drove 16 hours straight from sc. The lady at the front desk made the check in process quick and saved me some $. She also was extreamly friendly and made me smile even tho I was so so tired. When I came back to my room from my family's my daughters clothes and blanket were folded for me and put on bed. As a mother this made me extremely happy! After my experience I will not stay anywhere else. I will only spend my $ here. Thank you at the Sayre best western in PA!!!!!

    « Convenient and Economical »

    Overall, a clean, accommodating environment. Staff is friendly and helpful. Have stayed many times and it is relatively consistent on providing patrons with a pleasant experience. Confortable beds, traditional full breakfast options and even more amenities I have not taken advantage of.

    « ok hotel for the rooms downhill after that »

    rooms were nice. food should be avoided in the restaurant. no accomodation if you are a smoker. no pool. Restaurant and bar service was slow. The food was likely of the frozen entre type. highly recommend finding some other place to eat. sorry no ideas on that as I got stuck eating 2 nights there and they were equally poor.

    « Nice for the money »

    We have spent many a weekend at the hotel. The rooms are nice, neat and very clean. They have a nice restaurant which serves a nice breakfast. The staff is courteous and understanding if theirs an issue. If you get a chance, enjoy the bar which has nice entertainment on weekends.

    As I've said being a trucker I never know where I'm going to end up. But, thanks to the web I have found more Best Westerns along my way and plan on returning to them when ever I am in that area.

    Room was nice, nothing too fancy. Neighboring rooms could be heard and the doors slamming was very loud. Beds were very squeaky and you could feel the springs when moving at all. Bathroom was very nice and clean. Breakfast was nice but the staff was very busy and had difficulty keeping up with the demands of those using the breakfast area. Had a nice variety of food to choose from. Had a variety of activities for you to use : basketball, racketball,pool,sauna,etc.

    « Nice, but small issues »

    Called the front desk to inquire, if towels were available at the pool?, as some establishments wish you to keep room towels in the room. If you take you room towels to pool then you do not have towels for in your room latter. I was told yes, towels are available at the pool. At the pool no towels could be found, went to nearby fitness center and was provided 2 (two) skimpy (dish/ hand towels). one for self and one for spouse. It was obvious that we were going to use the pool, as we were dressed in swimming attire. Asked for an additional towel due to small size and got strange look from male staff worker siting behind desk, as if I was bothering him. Another hand towel was then provided. Enjoyed the nice swim in the pool, but that changed when drying of with a rough/ course hand towel. I should have taken the room towel. Other guest had brought towels from home, maybe they knew from previous experiences and others had some from their rooms I believe. Also barking dog in adjacent room during the overnight hours. Hotel not at capacity so why but other guests next to room with pets?

    The hotel itself was ok. Clean, quiet, but nothing special. Th ebreakfast was ok, but again nothing to look forward to. But the food in the restaurant was extremely good value.

    « Wedding&Reception »

    On August 13,2016 I was in a double wedding and reception at the Grand Victorian. While we had booked months in advance, the hotel overbooked for the same day. On the night prior, the event planner tried to force us into having the reception for 200 guests in the small lobby. Guests checking in,elevators open and closing, patrons wandering out from the bar adjacent to the lobby all free to interrupt. When I refused, the event planner become upset and somewhat sarcastic. The next day the wedding was beautiful. It went well and I have no complaints about the ceremony. The reception,however is a different story. First the soda was flat. No big deal, except the event planner at first became snarky and claimed that she couldn't solve the problem. Next, I was served alcohol when she was told repeatedly that I take meds and alcohol could have a fatal effect. Then she,the event planner was rude to guests, kept coming up to the bridal party and complaining about things that guests were bringing to her attention. There were other issues but I feel I have made my case for NOT patronizing the Grand Victorian. A couple days later I spoke with the general manager. I explained why I was disappointed. He brought his event planner in and she denied every single issue. In fact she was snarky during that meeting, and he,the general manager seemed very sceptical that anything I said was true. After two meetings in two days, they offered to refund each couple $250. I felt insulted, since we spent nearly $10,000 for the event, the hotel booked over a dozen rooms and they made several thousand dollars in the bar from the guests if our wedding.

    « Best Western Grand Victorian Sayre PA »

    We enjoyed a 1 night stay at the BW Grand Victorian in Sayre PA in early September. The hotel is very big, and is very welcoming and cozy. Room was large (with a king bed), as was the bathroom, and was spotlessly clean! Good in-room lighting and very fast internet connection. Buffet breakfast (included in room rate) was a mix of hot and cold items. Dinner at on-site restaurant/bar was very good, with a wide range of selections. You receive a 10% discount coupon to the restaurant, which is a nice feature. I would definitely recommend this hotel!

    I extensively checked the web for the Corning, NY area for a hotel. I thought the Best Western Grand Victorian is a beautiful hotel and a great value. The room was very comfortable, clean, quiet, and everything worked. The breakfast was a great selection and very well presented. The pool was a great size. The hot tub was plenty warm. I thought the fitness center was one of the best equipped for a hotel gym. I hope to return for another stay at this hotel.

    Good property for family or business. Service staff may need to pay more attention to the details--especially concerning refreshing room for next night stay. It was difficult to tell whether our beds had been made; the staff had the entire morning and afternoon to complete the task. The facility was not even at half capacity--hopefully just a bad day.

    « Sayre Best Western, Grand Victorian Inn »

    Was a lovely hotel, staff very friendly. ( they offer a 10% discount to customers, if you're dining at the lounge, only if you remember to mention and show the discount slip, that they slip into your key card envelope, if you do not see the discount slip, no one will remind you of the fact that you should have gotten one for dining in the lounge. ) We found ours in our key card envelope after the fact. Mentioning this to the staff person at the front desk the next morning, I was told I should have presented it the night before, I would have if I had seen it, or knew that it was there for my use. The whole time we dined, no one in the lounge mentioned to us about this discount slip....not even when we had our meal placed on our room #. It's a very nice hotel, but, don't expect them to honor their offers. Breakfast is kind of skimpy too.

    The room was very clean, staff was knowledgeable of the area and very helpful, excellent complimentary breakfast, will definitely stay here again. We stayed in a king suite with jacuzzi , but the only thing that I can see as a downfall was the window between the bathroom and the rest of the room. I wish there was a curtain that you can close so the person who is in the room can't see in the shower whIle someone else is in there showering.

    Good service. Clean room. I previously lived in Sayre when the Hotel was built. It was the first quality / new facility in the area. Over the years it has had its ups and downs. Currently is in very good condition, the staff very courteous and nice amenities. The one area they have not paid attention to is the grounds. The plantings are dying, the basketball court is in ruins etc. While these affect the exterior appearance, they are not representative of what is inside. I would recommend staying at the hotel.

    I found that our room was comfortable, clean and spacious. The staff at BW Sayre was helpful, personable and professional. The only negative for me was the small, soft pillows. Glad I packed my pillow from home to use later in the trip when we weren't staying at a hotel. We did not make use of the fitness center. We had the buffet breakfast, variety of food was good, scrambled eggs were a little watery - I wondered if they used powdered eggs.

    « Really nice place to stay when traveling I86 »

    This hotel has a beautiful campus and very nice accommodations. When traveling from Michigan to the northeast coast we enjoy using I86 through New York state rather than the NY Thruway. The road dips down into Pennsylvania for a short time, and this is where Sayre is. The town is nice and has many places for eating and shopping. The rooms are very nice and clean, and the staff is always helpful and friendly. Breakfast is typical of hotel offerings, but adequate and nicely presented.

    Located directly off of the NY Southern Tier and half way between our home and final destination. Good value with breakfast included.

    « We liked it so much we returned on way home »

    We picked Sayre as a halfway stop to Gettysburg. The Best Western is a good chain so we picked it online and arrived in afternoon. Wow! our expectations were blown away, it was so nice. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Lisa at the front desk gave us instructions to find the WalMart...we are on motorcycles so didn't want to get lost. Our room was very well appointed and very clean...Bonnie was our maid. We felt the room price was reasonable. There was a pool (warm) and a fitness room but we didn't have time to try either. We went to dinner in this hotel and loved the penne alfredo, and the special that night of chicken in gravy over biscuits. This hotel is easy to find on your GPS and there is a gas station right across from hotel entrance - important for cycles with a five gallon tank! Our dining waitress was also the bartender that night and still took good care of us - Laura. We then booked the following Sunday for our return trip home.

    The hotel is great in terms of location and service. We were traveling from Niagara to NY and stayed here for a night on our way to NY. The hotel staffs are extremely nice and professional. We were greeted nicely both at check in and check out. The hotel is very close to the freeway and there is a 24hr convenient store right across from the hotel.

    We were going to a race weekend at Watkins Glen Raceway and everything very near were quite expensive.

The breakfast workers were very friendly and kept everything stocked well. Large parking lot with good lighting so felt comfortable parking my vette there. The front desk staff were very friendly. We never had any problems in our two days so were very pleased with our stay.

    We loved our stay at the Best Western Grand Victorian Inn in Sayre, Pennsylvania. The room was beautiful, although I have to say that if you are wheelchair bound, the handicapped room we were in didn't see wheelchair-friendly to me. The bed was so comfy I fell right asleep. The biggest complaint I have is their lack of luggage racks which hindered our checkout. However, the staff was on top of it as soon as they realized our problem and they went up to our room, helped bring everything down to the lobby and then out to the car. I would not hesitate returning to this hotel. In fact, I look forward to it!

All of the room amenities associated with a superior class hotel are included. 100% smoke free and the windows open. Breakfast bar (included in room price) was abundant and good. Guests have use of a very well equipped health club with free weights, resistance machines, a cardio work out area, racquetball court, sauna and steam bath. Nice sized heated indoor pool equipped with a handicap lift device. The hotel is over 35 years old and was originally called the Guthrie Inn. The one negative was the heating/cooling unit. The digital temperature display wasn't very accurate in heating mode. I had to set the temp at 88 degrees before the unit turned on.

They had a microwave near the bed, which is something unheard of (better off not having one at all) so the appliance's red light would be on my face when I turned off the light. I had to get up and unplug or I would not sleep. Not a good value.

    Pleasant stay, clean, comfortable. Did not use any facilities due to short stay. Due to short stay did not have time to utilize amenities offered.Arrived late left early next am. Breakfast was very good and available early am, for which I was grateful since I had to get back on the road. Overall good choice. would certainly stay again when traveling in area.

    The hotel location is very convenient to Tioga Downs Casino, where we were going to see a local band play. The staff was very kind and helpful and the rooms were very nice as well. The full breakfast was a plus.

    « Cleanest Hotel Ever! »

    In my opinion, this was one of the cleanest hotels my wife and I have ever been to! Not the newest, but clean everywhere. The staff was a pleasure to deal with and we had no problems at all. We also brought our two dogs with us, and were welcomed by all as well. Overall a very pleasurable experience, and will return to this hotel often.

    Very nice place to stay. The staff is always friendly, any needs that you may have are addressed immediately and the breakfast buffet always pleases. If you are going to be in this area than this is the place where you want to stay.

    « Very nice hotel »

    We were there this past weekend for a banquet & decided to stay over. First, this hotel is pet friendly, so we were able to bring our dog with us. The property is situated right off the Sayre exit on 17W. Easy on; Easy off. Easy check in process. Ample parking. Nice area to walk the dogs. Good pool -- fun for the kids. Very nice breakfast! Room was large & bathroom was a good size. Plenty of room to put the dog crate right by the bed. Only complaint (reason for not giving this hotel a 5 rating) was that the bed was probably the most uncomfortable bed we've ever slept in. Absolutely no back support whatsoever. Great banquet rooms and food was very good. There is a nice bar at the hotel as well.

    « Not Up to standards for BW. »

    Decided to stop here after visiting the Casino, should have drove the hour back home. Went to there dinning room, yuk ! You gotta be kidding me. My wife ordered loaded nacho's with beef. They brought her nacho chips with cheese covered with steak um's. Disgusting. The bartender left to go out and smoke so we never got a refill or service of any kind. Went to the hotel needing machine to buy here a Diet Coke to wash the terrible taste out. And the machine is empty. Decided to go to room and make coffee. Yep you guessed it they didn't have any regular coffee. Only decaf. Yuk again. Room is somewhat nice but I'm afraid to go to breakfast in the morning. Not what I'm used to from a Best western hotel. Will probably not be returning anytime in the future. Should have drove home.

    « Love Going Here »

    My wife and I love using this hotel for an occasional getaway. The restaurant is not packed and the rooms are always clean. Sometime soon, if we go there and actually leave the room, we might even try the pool out. There are a couple of other establishments you can walk to for variety, or you can easily drive to dozens of places if you want to. We always have a great time when we go there.

    One of the nicest hotels we have stayed in as to how clean it was. The staff was very friendly. The location was close to the venue we wanted to go to. The rooms are well maintained. The free breakfast is a nice touch. A good variety of food for young and old.

    « Excellent hotel, cozy beds! »

    Any time I'm passing through Sayre PA, I only stay here...this hotel is just awesome. It's always quiet, the rooms are clean and the beds are very comfy. I highly recommend it! I also was glad to have a hot breakfast before heading out on a really cold day. There were eggs and sausage in addition to other items at the breakfast they offer.

    « Dated But Nice »

    I have traveled to this area for over 30 years and remember when this property was considered high end. The property is a little dated but well maintained and the staff was very helpful and friendly.The rooms had twin beds and I would have preferred queen, but I did know this beforehand. The price was very reasonable and I would stay there again. It is very conveniently located to the highway and centrally located to the three towns in the area. Overall a nice experience.

    « Chip and nice »

    We stay 1 night on the way from Toronto to New York. It was really good deal. The hotel close to the high way, but very quite. The room and the bathroom were super clean. The breakfast was excellent and the lady at the reception was very nice and professional.

    My husband and I stayed at this property on our way home from visiting family. Everything was perfect- our room was one of the cleanest I have seen, and the staff couldn't have been nicer! We will definitely be returning!

    « Very happy with Getaway Package »

    My wife and I were looking for a nice romantic getaway, and we chose this hotel. We were surprised to find out we could upgrade to a package and get our dinners paid for, so we jumped at the opportunity. We had a great time and we will definitely be back, and might try one of the other special packages, or the Romantic Getaway again.

    Stayed here when a family member was transferred to the nearby hospital due to critical medical condition. My daughter booked for us as we were directed from hospital to hospital in transit. The hotel where we had originally booked was very gracious in refunding our prior booking due to medical emergency. Another family member asked where we were staying and were very surprised at the reasonable cost of staying in such a nice hotel- so were we. The hotel was lovely, the staff professional & gracious, and, although we were not able to use some of the facilities due to our schedule- I walked through the hotel to "see what we were missing"- nice hotel. Breakfast had good variety, well prepared & neatly presented. The young woman kept everything spotless- with a genuine smile. The hours for breakfast were more extensive than at other hotels where we have stayed- our late hours at the hospital made us so appreciative of the extra freedom. We did not return to the hotel in time to use the restaurant- but the discount provided, proximity and the great smells emanating from the restaurant would certainly call us in on another visit. We would definitely stay here again when in the area.

    « Average Hotel Experience »

    Nothing remarkable nor bad to say about this hotel. We did sleep very good the first two nights we were here. Breakfast is pretty typical continental, but the waffle area was nice. Did not have a chance to go to the pool. Internet connection was so-so. Easy accessibility to 86E&W.

    « Great for families, right off the beaten path »

    We were meeting family at the Corning Museum of Glass so I wanted a hotel close by with a pool for kids and hot tub for me. This is right off the highway and you can't beat the price for what you get (pool, hot tub, free breakfast with hot options beyond cereal, yogurt, and fruit). We will stay there again as it's a great halfway point to meet family from Western NY.

    « A welcome find »

    Traveling home from Gettysburg on a motorcycle, we were ready to pay whatever we had to and accept the room available. Good room, good price, and a good dinner at the in house restaurant. Sunday morning breakfast was more than adequate.

    This was the most pleasant motel stay I have ever incurred. Thanks to the front desk clerk, we were made to feel like family. For someone as young as she was, she was very mature and made us feel very welcome.

    « Nice stay »

    It was a very nice stay. The bed was nice and comfortable. The desk came in handy for my paper work. The food for breakfast was great and the chair in the room was nice along with the foot stool. I will be hunting for more Best Westerns on my truck route through out P.A & Vt. .

    « Great room for a Great price »

    Staff was wonderful and even printed off maps of places we were looking for in town. All were very personable. The room was great and even though there were 2 weddings going on in the hotel, we did not hear any noise in our room. And we know that at least some wedding guests were on our floof.

    « Great service and dog friendly »

    Highly recommend this Best Western if you are in the market for a mid-priced dog friendly hotel near Sayre PA. Most hotels charge $100 or more to bring a dog. This is $10 per dog. Service was great. Had an AC problem and on a Sunday night we were moved immediately to a new room with a working AC. Front desk and maintenance staff were very responsive and friendly.
