    « Incompetent Manager »

    Afterward arriving and placing my items and suitcase in the closet flushed the toilet and the toilet overflowed and was actually gushing with water. I ran to the front desk where the manager was. He asked me if "i" had shut the water off. He did not come to my room. I was able to save my belongings in the closet from getting wet although the water had run out of the bathroom across the hall to the closet. I missed my planned meal with family members because I was busy moving into another room. Later when I explained to the manager that I was unhappy with the situation. After all the room was costing me 233.99 per night which is over 150% over the average rate the manager told me to wait until Sunday during check out to "see what he could do." He guaranteed that he would be there to check me out and wasn't present on Sunday or leave instructions to his staff. When I reached him on Monday after calling the hotel myself, he said that it wasn't his fault that the toilet overflowed....complaints: the room was not delivered properly, the manager did not act during emergency, the manager spoke to me as if I was his employee, the manager did not follow through on guarantee and the manager did not apologize for condition of his property and did not to accept responsibility for my dissatification.

    « Wonderful service »

    Stayed here two nights on business. Wanted a quiet place away from downtown, and this location was perfect---though it might be hectic during the State Fair. The manager, Mr. Patel, was very helpful in addressing my needs.

    « Very accommodating and great location for us »

    Colby was wonderful and accommodating from the minute we checked in. She set a nice tone to our trip. We asked and were quickly and easily switched to a king bed room. Nice clean hotel - though our shower curtain (not the liner) in room 211 could use a wash and the furniture could have used a good dusting. Our air conditioner and fridge cycled a bit loudly- something that other reviewers mentioned. Lighting was a bit dark and it would be great if hotels - including this one - could have a telescoping magnifying mirror for the ladies. Just down the street is a nice gas station/dairy with THE best chocolate milk, soft ice cream and pretty darn good looking pizza! Also the hotel staff directed us to Wally's Belvedere that we went to because the bar at the hotel was closed. (just a bit further up the road) . We took Wally's 'over' about 1130p and had a great time. We had our group dinner in the breakfast area as the steakhouse couldn't accommodate the 15 of us. They tried their best to make it work and Jeff did his best, but it failed. Our food was delivered and put on the counter rather than served. Though only I complained, others later admitted their food was cold too. Breakfast was nice enough and I was so very happy that it was set up earlier than 6am as the only time I got to have any breakfast was when we rolled in at 530am from our bowling event that was delayed and I got to eat breakfast BEFORE going to bed!! The hotel was easy to find off of 297 and 690. Overall - we were very happy with our stay.

    « good location for what we needed »

    We use this hotel once a year for a motocross event. It is very close to the fairgrounds. The hotel is basic but was clean. The breakfast is nice so we could eat and run. My biggest thing about hotels is that they are clean and this one is.

    « Not a quiet place to stay »

    This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel as it is the only one available in the area with our rewards points. The first time we stayed above the steak house on site which was rockin while I was rolling in bed. Fridge in the room is also loud and the toilets sound like a space ship taking off. Nice people and clean room stay at your own risk.

    « Overnight stay »

    We stayed here overnight so we would be close for my husband's race the nest day, the Lake Effect Half Marathon. There was a complimentary breakfast, which had quite a few choices. The staff was attentive at making sure there was enough food and supplies. The area to eat was very clean and spacious. The hotel was clean and very quiet. I would stay here again.

    « Not too bad, convenient »

    Stayed at this hotel to attend the CNY beer festival. Nothing special about the hotel, except the excellent steakhouse restaurant in it. The rooms are large and clean. The bed was comfortable. View of the highway. I would stay here again if I was attending an event at the state fair grounds, but no other reason.

    « Excellent service »

    We recently stayed at the Syracuse Best Western Airport Inn prior to a flight out of the nearby airport. The hotel was clean and comfortable, staff friendly upon check in. I left my car in the parking lot, the shuttle service was very accommodating, especially when April picked me up at the airport, delivered me to my car buried in snow. April jumped out of the van and proceeded to clear the snow off my car without gloves on! Thank you April!

    « Such comfortable beds »

    My main reason to choose Best Western motels is the comfortable beds. The staff is always there to help if you have even the slightest issue or need an extra pillow! Bu they do give you extra pillows on the beds already. The towels are nice and thick too.

    « Catch 22 »

    We booked too many hotels for this night so we tried to cancel this Best Western room. The front desk said we must call the website. The website said we must call the front desk. Then we were charged $90 and we didn't even stay here. All employees were very bland about this as if they pull this charade all the time...

    « BEST IN THE AREA »

    I attend a Trade Show once a year and have tried other hotels.The Best Western at The Fairgrounds is closest and by far the best. The breakfast offered was better than adequate,very clean room,service attendant kept the counters clean and replenished as needed.. The in house restaurant is as good or better as any restaurant in the Syracuse area with fine dining and a good bar and staff.. Parking very convenient and well lit for security. I won't stay in any other motel in the area.

    « Worst Hotel Ever. Bad treatment by owner/manager »

    This was the worst hotel stay. PERIOD. Our group had three rooms. Each room had its own problems. Room #1 had someone else's food left in the refrigerator. Room #2, the Tv didn't work and the toilet had a ring of black gunk around it. Room #3 had someone else's coffee splatters on the floor. It was there when we checked in. Housekeeping didn't clean it and the next day we told the front desk that the spot was still there and housekeeping was sent up. They argued in broken English that the water doesn't clean the floor. However, miraculously, when I requested she bring her mop and try again, the spot came up. I complained to the front desk about all 3 rooms (twice) and yet the manager never contacted me. Then, a month later, I find out that all of the rooms were billed to one credit card, instead of the three separate cards that we gave them. I complained to the hotel, and Best Western's customer service number. The manager didn't call back for three days, then lied about it and said he left me several messages. He said he would fix the charges but wouldn't give me any compensation for the problems, since Best Western gave me 'points' on my rewards. I told him I will never say at a Best Western again, as his hotel was the most disgusting place I had ever stayed. DO NOT GO HERE. Go to the Holiday Inn up the road.

    This seems to be a reliable hotel for a simple clean comfortable stay at a reasonable price. The breakfast was hot & acceptable and the staff was helpful. The room was pleasant, although it did not have a microwave

    « Good place to stay »

    The staff was friendly and helpful and the room was clean. The room could have used a little more lighting, however. Breakfast is available only until 9:00, a little early when where we are headed opens at 10:00.

    « NOISY COOLING SYSTEM NO TELEVISION »

    If you too like noisy cooling system which runs all night disturbing your sleep and a television that doesn't work you too will love this place. If you enjoy being told television is broken and nothing can be done and manager won't speak to you stay here. If you enjoy being disappointed and making the best of a bad situation stay here because the manager will give you BW points telling you that you should be grateful. If you enjoy asking the front desk person for help and being told nothing can be done this is the place for you. Location is great. Breakfast alright.

Mouldy in the toilet also

    « Excellence »

    So I frequently stay at Best Westerns across the country and I must say this one is tops with the steak house attached. They always link up with a local restaurant and I must say it been pleasurable. But the steak house leaves me begging to return. The prices are reasonable and the staff is amazingly professional. Just a great experience.

    « Good Best Western »

    We stayed 2 nights. Our room was up to the expected standard. Breakfast was ok but not wonderful. Staff very friendly and helpful. The big fair was on which we knew nothing about. Hotel laid on a free shuttle to and from which was very welcome. We would stay again.

    « Our Mistake Fixed by Hotel »

    We managed to book the hotel for the wrong days and showed up the evening before the last day of the NY State Fair with no room booked. The Night Manager, Jeremy, found us within minutes a room at the rate we had booked. Later, when our delivered cot got poached by another guest (it was the last one), he shifted us into a room with a sofa bed. Thank you Best Western.

    « Excellent Location for Fair, Minor Glitches Fixed Immediately »

    I booked this hotel on a whim after deciding to take a road trip from New Jersey up to the New York State Fair to see a concert. The price was excellent, considering the hotel's proximity to the fairgrounds. It's walkable, but they also offer a free shuttle that leaves at regular intervals. The outside is a bit nondescript; there's a sign on the building for the attached steakhouse but not for the hotel itself, which was a little confusing at first. Parking is free, which is a nice perk. The lobby was clean, and the carpet appeared to have been redone recently. I originally booked a room with a king bed, as I was told that was all that was left. When we got to our room, the door was propped open, which was strange, and the room reeked of smoke. We immediately went back down to the desk. There was nobody there, so we waited for about five minutes, explained the problem and were immediately switched to a different room, which ended up being better for us because it had two beds instead of one. The room was clean and comfortable with everything we needed for our one-night stay. No complaints there. We didn't try the free breakfast, but there is one included, which adds value. Overall, I'd recommend this place if you're looking for something middle of the road that's not too expensive and that's close to the fairgrounds.

    « Find someplace else, honestly. »

    Boss booked me into this place twice now. Told him never again, ever. If you can find someone at the front desk they are not polite or even knowledgeable about room locations. No one is ever at the desk in the morning. Rooms are noisy and never really what I would call clean. Check the toilets and tub drain before unpacking. I spend a ton of time on the road and have gotten used to too much bs in hotels. But this place is not worthy of my money. Just don't bother. I asked for a quiet room, like it says in my member profile. I was placed in a room directly above the restaurant kitchen and dishwasher. When I asked for a change, I received attitude and a room with a broken toilet.

    « Great Place to Stay near NY State Fair »

    This hotel was close to the fair groungs. 10 minute walk. It was clean, courteous staff and offered breakfast. They even run a shuttle to the fair hourly, but we walked most of the trips over. We had a special night there and Daniella's Steak House was an excellent restaurant. WIth no drive home. I'd stay here again!

    « Fun at the Fair »

    The hotel was clean, employees friendly, especially Sue Y our shuttle driver. Prices were fair, and the breakfast was good also. My only wish was for a pool but we loved our little getaway to the NYS Fair.

    Staff was not helpful and room was not ready upon arrival. They sent us to another room that was not cleaned yet. The toilet ran all night. When we went to check out no one came to the desk. We ended up just leaving our keys. The night before we asked to speak to the manager but he would not come out.

    « Ashlee »

    Hotel was clean with friendly staff. Upon entering the room, it was nicely furnished and well maintained. Upon taking my shoes off, they immediately got wet.... I was standing on a soggy, wet carpet that was wet from the bathroom door to the first bed. Not just damp, soaking wet. I was tired and with kids. So we put items on the floor so we knew where the wet spot was and went to bed. We left a note for the staff in the morning, since we left at 6am, and hoped for the best. Upon our return at 4pm, we opened the door to a putrid locker room smell, or mildew, from the still damp carpet. I alerted the front desk man when we checked out and he said something to the effect that I should have told him sooner and he would have given us a different room. When I make reservations at a hotel, I shouldn't have to tell them something is wrong with a room or have to move rooms. Staff should be looking for these issues! Otherwise, the continental breakfast is great and the hotel was quiet. I don't like that the side doors are never locked and anyone could stroll in. There also were some cute beavers in the little water way near the parking. The restaurant at the hotel had good food but really pricey. There is a great deli up the road and a Byrne dairy with a subway for food.

    « Concert stay »

    Very clean and spacious rooms. Close to the Amphitheater. The food at the on site restaurant is very good, with great service, but a little pricey. Would definitely stay there again. The desk person was very accommodating, and helped a lot with local attractions and all that Syracuse has to offer.

    « Ironman stay »

    Not an easy place to get to from the interstate even though you will be able to see it. Bedroom was standard and fine. Internet was not working and tech people had to be called so it was out until the next morning. If you are staying at the fair this would be a good location otherwise I'd skip it. The adjoining restaurant was fantastic.

    « road trip »

    I found that the hotel was small... side door was never locked... not that i had to worry bout strangers entering... there was no pool or outdoor lounging area. Breakfast could of had more variety of items...! Was very close and convenient to the concert that i attented... easy access to get to and to leave...it's not top of the line but was good enough to stay in for the evening and was a reasonable price.

    « Nothing bad, Ok place. »

    Stayed here only because we were going to a concert at the Lakeview amphitheater. This is THE place to stay if you are going there. Very convenient access, but its a 45 min walk, or a 8 min drive (as long as you go early to beat the traffic.) Even if you waited and went with traffic it would not be too bad given the close location. its a decent, if old motel. Ok breakfast. Don't expect much and you won't be disappointed.

    « Closest hotel to fairgrounds »

    Hotel was nice, seems newer, is clean and fairly quiet. Booked this because we were going to a concert at the amphitheater at the fairgrounds. This was the closest we could find and it said 0.6 miles. It is definitely too far to walk though because of the way you have to get into the concerts, and there are no sidewalks so we ended up taking a cab from the hotel. The bar and restaurant in the hotel was decent and staff were pretty friendly.

    4
    « Excellent location for Fairgrounds or Amphitheater »

    Very close to the Fairgrounds and shuttle to parking lot from the Amphitheater. The downside is that there are not many restaurants close by. There is a steakhouse at the hotel, but it is pricey. You can Uber or cab it to a restaurant in the city, or it is an easy drive. Near to the highway exit, but surprisingly not noisy.

    « Convenient to Fairgrounds »

    It's an obvious choice for any event at the Fairgrounds. Modest comforts.Gates are within walking distance. The usual dim lighting. Coffee OK but not the cheap black teabags. Stale air. Good steakhouse restaurant in the building.

    « Convenient For A Night's Stay »

    We stayed at this hotel for 1 night in mid-June. We were in Syracuse after a tour of the University for my son, and we were still heading upstate to Buffalo. We chose this hotel because it was close to the Fairgrounds and we were attending an event there. The room was comfortable and large enough for two adults and two children. We didn't eat at the steakhouse, but that's obviously a plus for hungry travelers. The breakfast the next morning was plentiful. Staff was helpful.

    « Girls get away »

    We got here at 3:30pm, and here it is 4:40 and our room is still not ready. No apology, just a we can't promise your room will be ready we've been busy with concert goers. I was planning on coming here again for a night when I go to another concert, but at this rate....looking for another hotel.

    « Thumbs up on accessibility »

    We spent one night here in early June. It's in the middle of no place. If you are going to the fairgrounds, it's about a mile away. If you are looking for downtown Syracuse, forget about it. If you were just passing through, as we were, its very good as the Interstates are nearby but not so nearby that they are noisy. I needed a handicap accessible room There is a roll in shower and portable shower bench. There is plenty of room to get a wheelchair under the bathroom sink. My only two comments about the bathroom is that there is no way to contact help if you are in trouble (no switch, no phone) Also, the width between the toilet and the edge of the sink is too small by about an inch. It was difficult lining up the wheelchair to do a transfer to the toilet. I think both of these issues could be fixed by management. Having Daniella's steak house next door was great. Again not many places to eat in the area. But the food at Daniella's is worth it (See my review under restaurants) I was able to get into the restaurant from inside the hotel They have nice outdoor seating weather permitting. I suggest however, that you make a reservation in advance as it fills up quickly at dinner time--at least on a Saturday night. The room had a shortage of outlets but it did have a microwave and fridge. The staff was average. The breakfast area was nice with a nice collection of both hot and cold items. I'd come back if in the area again.

    « Worst stay ever »

    Do not waste your time and money staying here. The management is awful which trickles down to the rest of the staff. The hotel gave our room away. To accommodate us was very hard to say the least. The rooms stunk of cigarette smoke. Towels were hard to come by and the price was too high.

    « Pleasantly surprised »

    The location of the hotel was ideal fro the event we were going to at the Fairgrounds. The restaurant seems like it had a excellent choice of food - wish we would have had time to eat there. Surprising our room was very quiet even though there were expressways just down the road. Staff was pleasant and efficient.

    « Change the sheets for God's sake! »

    The sheets had make up stains on them when I checked in, it was late and I am not that squeamish so I let it go. The second night I also got in late and was tired so I let it go again. The third night I was just curious to see if the stains were still on the sheets and they were along with a small wine stain I contributed the previous night. This hotel requires you to sign a wavier about pets and smoking, yet does not seem to care if the sheets are clean!

    « Great location »

    Stayed one night. Previous reviews mentioned poor room service, however, I'm glad that I chose this location. Very courteous and professional staff. Clean and spacious room. Hot breakfast was average. I had $10 Best Western Travel Card but front desk staff couldn't figure out how to apply the travel card to the bill. Otherwise, I would give 5 stars!

    « One Night in Syracuse »

    Five of us stayed in Syracuse for one night to take part in a dance competition at the Fairgrounds. The location of this hotel is very convenient to the Fairgrounds and a short drive to Destiny. The breakfast was good and hot. When we arrived however, our room had not been cleaned from the previous guests. We were offered one King bed which wasn't enough room for two adults and 3 children. Eventually we were given two King rooms which solved the space issue. Upon checkout we were charged for a cot that we didn't receive or use. Although the location was very good, not sure that we would stay there again.

    « Good value »

    The only complaint I have is the lighting in the room. It was dark and had to unplug the coffee maker to plug in the one lamp. The room was clean and the girl who checked up in and out was friendly. It was very close to the event we went to at the fairgrounds which was nice.

    « No coffee in the morning! »

    I was staying there on business, and while I was there for four days, there was a problem with the coffee machine in the breakfast room the entire time. I can understand a problem for one day, and I would accept that, but not for four days. In fact, when the staff on the first morning told me that the coffee machine was not working, I drove up the road to Suzie's Diner and bought two coffees, one for me and one for her. At he very least a hotel should have a back up plan for something like this...such as run up to Target and buy a Mr. Coffee and a few cans of Maxwell House coffee. Also, while the room was clean, I noticed that there was something covering the recessed lighting fixture near the entrance to the room. I dragged a table over to the area and placed a chair on top of it and climbed up to investigate...it must have been a sight to behold, my balancing up there..it turns out the fixture was covered with plastic. Apparently, the ceiling had been painted, and they never removed the masking over the lighting fixture. Also, I returned to the room at 5:00 p.m. one day only to find that the room had not yet been made up, but the maid was just about entering. Rather than get to relax a bit, I had to leave so that she could complete her cleaning. There is no reason for any hotel room to not be ready by 3:00 p.m. I think that this place has a management issue.

    « Wonderful experience! »

    We were in the area to see a show at the NY State Fairgrounds, so the location was wonderful. The hotel was great in all aspects, but the most memorable was the fast, courteous and helpful staff in all areas of the hotel. Your people were wonderful!

    « Clean and Friendly »

    The hotel is very clean and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The room was large with adequate amount of space, tables, and places to store luggage and clothes. We had a refrigerator and coffee maker in the room. The bed was too firm for a side sleeper but enough pillows were provided to make something work. The steakhouse on the first floor has phenomenal food although a bit on the price side as any good steakhouse is. Close to other food options too but not within walking distance. The issues we had were that the free wifi was spotty and we had a difficult time logging in on all of our devices. Also, the cable TV went out one night forcing us to call it an early night. That same night at about 1 AM the pipes in the wall started vibrating so loud it sounded like our neighbors were using a jack hammer and the noise brought several rooms residents into the hallway to investigate. It was a startling wake up but the staff were quick to resolve the situation and there is not much else you can do about cold pipes. We took the do not disturb sign off our door everyday so our room would be cleaned but the second to last day when we returned to our room, the do not disturb sign was back on the door, our room was not cleaned, and no fresh towels. We know that we took the sign off the door because we let the door close before taking it off and had to use the key card to open the door to put the sign back in the room. The breakfast consisted of cereal, danishes, a waffle maker, and some eggs and a meat side. It is walking distance to the NY State Fairgrounds.

    « Convenient w/ Great Food & Drink »

    Hotel is clean and close to the State Fairgrounds where we attended a trade show. Daniella's has excellent food and the bar there is nice. This was the first time we stayed on the property but have eaten there many times. It's always on point.

    « Avoid if you are sensitive to smells. »

    The hotel itself was not bad, but from the moment we entered the lobby until we escaped the following morning, we were bombarded by an incredibly strong smell of air freshener, like some people over-use air freshener to cover up nasty smells. It was strong, pungent, and ever-present. We ran the air conditioning unit using fan only, thinking it would bring in outside air, but the stench remained in the room all night. They must use an air freshener in their entire system because we couldn't escape the smell anywhere in the building. It made us seriously question the cleanliness of the hotel because usually people overuse air freshener to hide unpleasant odors. This stench was AWFUL! Smell aside, it was an okay place to stay while driving through. In the future, we will never stay here again.

    « Poor room service »

    I reported this incident on my departure but never heard back from inn staff. I came to stay for two nights. Since the housekeeping had come in while I was sleeping, I requested the lady to come later. She didn't speak English, so I called the receptionist, who said she doesn't know where housekeeping is, but will tell them to come later. Around 5pm, when none came, I called again, and she was rude. She said she doesn't know where housekeeping is. They could be upstairs, she doesn't know how to reach them. I told her we have no towels, no coffee, no soap. She was very rude and said to come to reception if I wanted anything. I'm disabled, so its hard for me to come and go again and again. Later, I called again to ask her if there is any food delivery service close to inn. Again, she was rude and said come to reception and take pamphlets. I came to reception, and on my way out asked her about housekeeping again. It was 8pm by that time and my third request. She said they left. I was very upset. When I told her its not right, she said its not her job to take care of housekeeping. My room was a mess and there were no cups, no creamer, no coffee. I even ran out of tissues. I couldn't carry a bunch of stuff to my room. So, I went to my room with just coffee which I had in the only available plastic cup that I had used before. I was very disappointed and while checking out told the morning receptionist about what had happened. You come to hotel and expect everything in order, but my experience was a disaster. The morning receptionist was a nice lady, who said she will report this, and I will receive a call from them and most likely 20% discount. Not that I care about the discount, but I feel an apology call or at least a follow up call of inquiry would have been nice. After spending $230, I think I deserved at least that much respect.

    « Be careful! »

    We called the hotel and made our reservation with a young lady. We told her we were seniors and she quoted the price. We agreed and made the booking. She emailed us our confirmation. When we arrived at the hotel, the manager at the desk told my husband that we were given the AAA price and INSISTED that since we were not AAA members we would have to pay more. He accused us of lying when we made the booking. My husband told him that we had not represented ourselves as AAA members when we booked and that we would find a room elsewhere. As my husband was walking out the door, the manager called him back and said he would honor our reservation price. This was nothing less than a shoddy way for the manager to try to get more money out of us. We don't do business that way and will never go back.

    I called ahead to let the hotel know that I would be checking in at 10:15pm and they said, "No problem". In fact, I didn't have a problem checking. My room was on the first floor, and it was clean and quiet. Breakfast was good, and Sue was very helpful to everyone. I would suggest eating early (I went at 7:30am) since the room can get crowded around 9am. Checking out was a breeze at 9:15am, and I left for the fair in good spirits. I would definitely stay here again.

    « Room Cleaning »

    8/2016 - Just stayed at the Best Western, The Inn at the Fairgrounds for a couple of nights. The room was decent, but I was disappointed. The room was not cleaned during our stay. The beds were not made and new towels were not delivered to the room. There was mold in the bathroom on the ceiling. When we came back to the room after being out all day, we asked the night clerk why our room was not cleaned. She told us that the cleaners did not come to work. She also called the manager and informed him of our complaint. She also indicated that other customers had the same complaint. When we left in the morning we walked by the cleaners on our floor, so we know that they did work that day. We complained to the manager the next morning when we were checking out. My husband and I got the impression that this happens often. The manager tried to blame us. In the end, he gave us $10.00 off the room. I didn't feel that was enough, but my husband assured me that we would not stay there again.

    « Hotel Amenities good - front desk not so much »

    The hotel was clean, great amenities, clean rooms, comfy beds. What I did not like was that the front desk receptionist was less than friendly. There was also a discrepency with a 3rd room (which I cancelled 5 months prior) on my reservation. The front desk tried to get me to give a credit card over the phone to pay for the room that I did not want to check in to as I had cancelled it. I did go to the desk with the cancellation number and cleared it up, but the clerk had more of I am always right attitude instead of what you would expect from someone who provides good customer service

    « Just average, good location for fair or concert »

    The location is great if you're going to the fair or the Amphitheatre. Parking on site, wifi worked well. The main floor hall smelled of damp old dog and unfortunately, so did our room. The AC seemed to just give off damp air and it was so hot out, there's no way we could turn it off. All our belongings were "wet" for 3 days. We did ask the young lady at the front (night shift, grumpy) if we could change rooms, we were told no, they're all the same anyway. The beds themselves were comfortable, the bathroom was clean and had basic amenities. Can't comment on breakfast as it ended at 9am promptly, so we never made it. The day we were to leave, they were banging on the door at 11am sharp for us to check out. Attached restaurant has good food, good bar and great service.

    « Good location, clean rooms »

    This hotel is very conveniently located. If not familiar with the area, it's a little tricky finding it, but once you find it, the easy access to highways makes it a great spot. The Inn has an attached restaurant, Daniella's which has a good happy hour and dinner. I believe they are also open for lunch. Sadly, you're stuck with a very tired continental breakfast and staff that find keeping it stocked quite a nuisance. In fact, the only staff member I could find, at the front desk, made it clear that asking for utensils or anything else that had run out was annoying, particularly when it was within 15 minutes of the end of the stated breakfast hours. That said, the rest of the staff (those working the late afternoon, evening/night shift) are all amazingly friendly and helpful. I borrowed a few items from the desk and they were very accommodating. The room was clean, though there was hole in the bathroom door which they had poorly patched - not a deal breaker, but it does distract from the perception of the Inn. Finally, we did take advantage of a ride to the train station which was very convenient and appreciated (24hour advance notice required). All in all, a good stay, with a couple of minor issues that could be easily remedied. Morning service 0 stars, all other service 5 stars!

    The room was very clean. Bed was comfortable and this was a great location which was central to most everything in Syracuse. Worth the cost! The restaurant had great food but the wait was way to long. This was because of all the locals and outside visitors coming in. If your a hotel guest don't expect food quickly. The staff of the restaurant were very nice however it was very noticeable that the regulars were helped before any hotel guests. A table of 4 men seated 10 minutes after us were served food before our table of 2.

    « No Vending »

    I have stayed at this BW twice. I live about 19 miles away but when you travel for a living sometimes it's just easier to be at a hotel right near your dispatcher so I can sleep in. This BW is ok nothing fancy. There is a steak house restaurant attached, BUT main issue is good luck finding anyone who delivers there except pizza & sushi place. The hotel has NO VENDING you have to buy over priced items from the front desk. Place was clean both times, and both times everyone was friendly. I'm giving it an honest 3 out of 5 due to no vending, no pool, no hot tub, and before I forget both times there were women selling themselves in the hallway. Not Vegas style hookers either more like really nasty bad neighborhood ones. However since the hotel has always been clean it always been really nice to put out a decent breakfast I'm giving them three out of five. Not entirely sure I would be in a big hurry to go there if I had a family I don't think I'd want kids around the atmosphere but other than that it's a decent hotel.

The manager did clear it up however the staff needs more training on the desk.

There was a good variety, including fresh fruit. This hotel was an excellent value and provided exactly what we were looking for.

    Our family of four stayed here before. Our girls were competing at a dance competition hosted at the fairgrounds just down the road. Room was clean and comfortable. The hot buffet breakfast which was included was what we were looking forward to as it was good in the past. By the time we got to breakfast it was picked over fairly well, I had to scrape the last eggs off the tray. Needless to say, not much variety. I thought the hotel staff may replenish the breakfast items but that did not happen. Apart from breakfast, I would stay here again.

    « Only here to sleep »

    Our stay lasted 2 days. Luckily, we only slept here. Evening reception was less than welcoming on arrival. She didn't have any company ID, name tag or corporate uniform. The parking information we received was erroneous, making us walk almost half way around the building . Our room smelled of stale cigarette even though the hotel is a smoke free property. The room was spacious and the bathroom was clean and well stocked with towels. Pillows were lumpy and uncomfortable. Beds were fine. The breakfast area was clean and the hot and cold choices were ample and hit the spot. We returned to the room late in the afternoon to discover that our room had been cleaned. This is where the oddness was evident. The pillows were piled one on top of the other on the beds. The decorative runner at the foot of one bed was bunched up on the floor. My daughter's 3 small stuffed animals were on a table by the window. She had left them on top of the fridge with her snacks. The telephone was still on the floor between the beds. We placed it there the night before to make room for a sleep machine. The sleep machine was packed away in the car while we were out. Wi-fi was spotty at times, otherwise fine. There was railway tracks outside our room. One train passed slowly and quietly during the night, it was not a problem. Other than the fairgrounds, there is a nothing nearby or in walking distance. Our stay was ok,just ok. Its location was convenient for our reason to be in Syracuse.

The rate could not be beat and I will bet this place is packed during fair week. The hotel is easy to find and right off the highway. There is ample parking and the property appeared to be in good shape. I had some trouble checking in. The woman at the desk just kept saying "Yes, Mr. [last name]. You are all checked in". When clearly, I was neither in my room nor a mister. Once she found a room for me, I had my key and was sure I was not paying for the person staying in the room intended for me, it was fine. My room was clean and comfortable. There is a restaurant and bar on premises which appears to be a very popular hangout for the locals.

    « Room needs repairs, staff did not deal with noise »

    We stayed new years eve. A night you would expect people to be a little louder than normal. That being said. people were constantly going in and out of the 2 rooms next to us as I think a big party was split between rooms. After the new years we awoke at 3:00 am to screams as someone was locked out of their room. As we were on the 1st floor we awoke at 4:00 am to the sounds of someone getting sick outside our window. The staff can not be blamed for this, but I think that due to the location of this hotel it's more of a party place and not very family friendly. The room itself was clean however the tub was stained and looked bad, the coat hook on the bathroom door was pulling away and needed to be replaced. The beds were hard and very cheap feeling as you could feel the springs underneath you. All that on top of the noise led to a very unpleasant stay. I usually only stay at Marriott hotels and should have for this quick one night trip as well.

    « Well Maintained, but Typical Best Western Issues & Smell »

    I'll start with the good: The staff was friendly (though I think we woke up one of the front desk attendants). They weren't very knowledgable about the area but did have a tourism book and some restaurant menus on hand. The building was well maintained. They were painting while we were there. Best Western needs to improve their hotel requirements. There's no rhyme or reason to their room layout. It seems they had someone - maybe a front desk clerk order a bunch of furniture from a catalog and then had maintenance randomly place it in rooms. Put a light near an outlet, a chair here, a table there?after completely re-arranging the furniture the room was more usable. It did not have adequate lighting. There is a smell throughout the building (especially the small fitness room!). The restaurant food was good, but it was very tight and had scented candles on the tables. The location is convenient to the fairgrounds, but really nothing else. There's very little to eat in a quick drive other than take-out pizza, take-out chinese and fast food. Breakfast at the hotel is free, but isn't very good. The mattress was like sleeping on a board. Housekeeping came at 4:00 pm. The bathroom could have been cleaner and the toilet seat was not attached well - also VERY loud.

    If you are showing or have an event at the New York State Fairgrounds I would only recommend staying here. It is literally a minute drive to the fairgrounds and very nice and clean. The restaurant Danielle's or Daniella's is very good and is located in the hotel.

    The employees were extremely informative about the area. The restaurant (Daniella's Steakhouse) was exceptional! The room was spacious, comfortable and we could almost see the lunar eclipse from our room!!

    All in all a reasonably priced place. The room was nice and clean and the service in general was very good. Value for your dollar. The only problem that we had was the plastic silverware which comes with the complimentary breakfast was placed with the eating side of the utensils up, thereby causing people to touch other utensils with their hands....... not very good.

    « Very Close to the Fairgrounds »

    We had dinner at the restaurant attached to this hotel on a previous trip to Syracuse, NY so we decided to stay here on a recent business trip. It is located one minute away from the New York State Fairgrounds in Syracuse just off of an exit for Interstate Route 690. The room was quiet, a decent size and the bed was very comfortable. The place was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. The parking lot is big and can handle small travel trailers. Their restaurant named Daniella's was even better this time than our last trip.

    Made my reservation back in June 2015 on BestWestern.com & went to check in on Sept 18, 2015 & they did not have me in the system!! The Hotel was full & the front desk lady called the manager only for him to say sometimes that happens with online booking. No apologies, no nothing! They called a dive of a hotel for us to stay in, which we had no choice but to stay as we just drove 10 hours with nowhere else to stay. Will NEVER go back to this hotel!! BEWARE!!
