    « Continues to Excel!!! »

    This hotel is just fantastic! It has beautiful, functional and comfortable rooms, and tons of wonderful features such as a restaurant with a chef, a tavern, a terrific fitness center, proximity to a golf course, ease of location - it has everything you could hope for at affordable rates! The staff takes pride in their work and facility. Can't say enough good things!

    « Graduation »

    Very pleasant staff, clean rooms, comfortable beds. I just hate that the town is dull. But then again this is a small town so there isn't much to do, see or go. But it is very convenient if you kid attends the nearby colleges.

    « Disappointed »

    We have stayed at the Best Western in Canton NY many times however was very disappointed in the service and kitchen for breakfast this time. If they could have been any slower they would have been stopped. Took 25 minutes for them to take our order and another 25 minutes to get the food. Everyone in the place was complaining getting up out of their seats looking for their waitress or help from anyone. Our waitress was pleasant however continued to say sorry. We were close to missing our sons senior award ceremony as they were so behind. Not to mention there was not many tables for 4 waitresses to handle. The waitress was rattled, the food was cold, the apple juice was watered down. I'm glad my son is graduating this year and never have to return to this place as the bar was a cluster f... just allow 1 1/2 hours for breakfast, longer than I have ever spent in the Caribbean which has a tendency to be extremely slow

    « A Pleasant Surprise »

    The hotel was clean and comfortable. The ammities were better than expected! The fitness room was newly refurbished and the pool and hottub were clean and well maintained. We even were able to enjoy use of the sauna!! My only minor complaint is the cost of the food and beverages in the lounge and restaurant. A discount should be offered to patrons of the hotel. I will stay at this hotel again!

    The hotel was clean and the staff was kind and very helpful. I would stay at this hotel again next year when making our annual trip to this area. Having a restaurant within the hotel was so convenient and the service and food were top notch.

    Just a one night stay for me. Front desk attendant was friendly. Room was definitely small. However, room was clean, hot water in the shower, and stable internet. I would stay again. There is a restaurant on-site, however, I chose Dunkin Donuts across the street.

    « When you're the most convenient option... »

    I've stayed at this hotel twice now. It's just a stone's throw away from St. Lawrence University, where our son will be attending college. The rooms are smaller than average--at least ours have been. That really wasn't a big surprise. Such is often the case with older, more dated hotels. They are able to redecorate but rarely reconstruct. At this hotel even having been "updated" there was a faint "old" smell in the hallways where our rooms were located on both visits. But it's not so bad as to be a "deal breaker." Just know that with more than two people in a double room, you will find yourself literally crawling over each other. The bathrooms are so small there is little room for a cosmetic or travel kit to even sit on the counter. And there are no proper closets. The rooms have small ledges which are maybe a foot deep on which to sit your bags, a couple of shelves and a closet rod less than a yard long. Nevertheless, the rooms are clean and the actual furnishings are relatively up to date. The food and service in the restaurant are good. Overall our first stay was okay. It was, again, convenient. Our most recent stay, however, was disappointing. Housekeeping did not clean our room. We left the room before noon and spent the entire day at SLU. We returned in the evening to the room just as we left it. When I complained and suggested that we should be comped in some way, they gave us towels and was told that the manager who could actually respond to my complaint wouldn't be in until the next morning. The next morning came and the manager was not there. I was told that she was traveling and had been delayed due to weather and that I could leave (it was our checkout day) and she would contact me. That was a Sunday morning. Monday came. No contact. I telephoned in the evening. No manager. It's Tuesday morning and not a word. I've not been contacted. If I were to stay here again, it would simply be because it is the most convenient option (not much to choose from in a lovely, but small town like Canton) and not because it excels in comfort or in actual customer service. Unless you are traveling alone, in the end it may be worth a few extra miles to Potsdam for less cramped accommodations, more options and, possibly, better response to customer concerns. If you're already in a cramped room, it could at least be cleaned. If it isn't, someone on site should at least be empowered to respond appropriately within 48 hours. That really isn't a lot to ask when you are spending your money. I've just become aware of the University Suites Hotel in Canton. I don't think it has a restaurant, but that isn't a deal breaker for me. Can always grab a bite at the Best Western Restaurant but lodge elsewhere. I will try the University Suites next time if rooms are available.

    « Great Value for a Lot of Amenities »

    « Graduation stay in Canton NY »

    Stay was great.. Quick breakfast till everyone was up very good. Breakfast in restaurant nice, they were dealing with a large group before us but they provided for our family of 9. Only down fall, beds are very high off of the floor.

    « Great staff, great hotel! »

    As usual, a great experience staying at Best Western. Friendly and courteous staff, excellent facilities. Rooms are a little on the small side (space between bed and desk leaves is a little tight for spending hours working at the desk), but it's a fair trade as what sleep I had time for was the sleep of the dead. When I go back to the Canton/Potsdam area, I will definitely book here again.

    « Comfiest beds ever! »

    We travelled to Canton to take in a few St. Lawrence hockey games and the location is ideal. Clean, spacious rooms. One very tiny negative would be that the bathroom was on the small side. But the bed was so amazingly comfortable! Seriously, best bed ever. Be sure to eat at their restaurant. Food was delicious.

    « Excellent »

    The staff was great. I had planned on staying two nights and driving back to the airport in the morning but the forecast called for heavy snow between there and the airport. The staff was very helpful and changing my reservation from that hotel to another Best Western at the airport.

    « Enjoyed it »

    Stayed here with a youth hockey team. Rate was pretty decent. Could hear doors closing all around, but not much else. Good fan in bathroom. Temp in room was easily controlled - not too hot and dry or cold. Kids enjoyed pool. Lounge was good and had locals to tell stories.

    « Best option in the region »

    The hotel has character and a great staff. The hotel's location on the edge of a nice golf course and beautiful campus of St Lawrence University add to the experience. In my opinion this hotel is the best option in this region.

    « Rude/miserable-will never stay there again »

    Front desk, lounge, security and housekeeping all rude and quite miserable. Room not cleaned or restocked after 2 nights-front desk offered no explanation why-only asked if it really needed to be cleaned?!?! One treadmill out of three in working order. Room very, very dry and therefore uncomfortable.

    « Dinner at the restaurant took 2 hours »

    Our dinner took 2 hours to be prepared for 6 people! The manager took $6 off the bill. And offered nothing else as we had kids waiting to be fed. The kids enjoyed the pool and that was a nice facility. The bathroom was tiny and you can barely shut the door.

    « Not worth the cost »

    I was charged $199 US ($291 CDN) for a one night stay......not worth the cost. Several families stayed from a minor hockey team, and the hotel was full. This is an average hotel, so they should never be charging $200 per night.

    « Weekend at SLU »

    The hotel is very clean, current decor, comfortable and welcoming. Staff are very helpful and friendly. The bar is a nice area, however they only had one bartender working the night of a school booster club function after a hockey game, which made it very slow for getting drinks. Not complaining, we had a great time. Great location. Lot's of parking

    This is a amazing restful place after a very long day traveling for work in the North Country of NY. I have stayed here every 2 weeks for the passed 12 years. Home sweet home . Has everything. One of the best places in the North of NY! I can stay anywhere. But this is my favorite.

    « BW Stay »

    Love this hotel,It is very well located to all the amenities of the town of Canton. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice and the pool is really a plus. The only negative comment I would have for the property is the Fitness center, the weight machine has been there for 20 years and is very tired...doesn't work that well and should be replaced. Some free weights are needed as well. That being said, the hotel and property is very comfortable and clean.

    Admittedly, there are only two hotels we know of there, but have been staying at BW/Univ Inn for the past 4 years and will for the next three as we have 2 children enrolled at St Lawrence Univ and BW is the most convenient to the University. But very friendly staff, on-site restaurant, lounge, fitness and pool make it a good value.

    Over the weekend, my husband and I stayed here while visiting our daughter at SLU. We have stayed numerous times as this is one of the best (and only) full service hotels in the area. Front desk is always exceptional during check in and just as great checking out. We ate dinner in the lounge on the extremely busy Saturday night. For being so packed, the server was quick to greet us, get our orders and cocktails. She was very friendly and with such a busy atmosphere she managed to keep a smile on her face all night long. She didn't rush us, let us relax, and checked on us with perfect timing. All around it was a great weekend and will be back soon.

    « All around perfect »

    This hotel has it all for Canton, NY area. With its 24 hour fitness center, sauna, clean pool, quiet comfortable sleep, clean room, good food and super friendly staff and a golf course, I can not imagine any hotel in the area even coming close to it. I have no reason to stay there again until next year, but with out a doubt, I will be staying at this hotel.

    My wife and I stayed at this hotel during a brief trip to Canton to visit family in the area. Although we found the hotel to be clean and pleasent, we found the rooms to be exceptionally small, including the bathrooms. Additionally, the beds we're so high, you almost needed the assistance of a Sherpa Guide as you climbed into bed. On the upside, the hotel has a lounge/bar, a full restaurant an indoor swimming pool with a hot tub. Also, an 18 hole golf course.

    « Any Port In A Storm »

    Hotel looks nice, but lobby is cramped. No continental breakfast, as they'd prefer you spend big money at their restaurant. Rooms were clean, but small, and the bathrooms are tiny. Pillow case was dirty, and the hide-a-bed was not made up with sheets, even though we arranged for 3 guests in the room. Prices are very high in this area for what they offer and the surrounding area, making for a tough pill to swallow for value.

    This hotel is a nice place to stay, especially if you are visiting SLU. It is within walking distance to the university, and the "Village of Canton." There is a convenient sidewalk right outside the hotel that you can travel on to get to the school and shops/ eateries on Main Street. The hotel staff is friendly and helpful. I used the gym and restaurant, which were both adequate. I will stay here again, if I visit Canton.

    Great location to school. Just 5 min drive to admissions office. Decent restaurant onsite. Close to grocery store and gas stations. Nice clean rooms. Little noisy in hallways but was quiet before too late.

    « Better than expected »

    We were in the area for a weekend event and this was one of the recommended hotels. Check in was smooth and easy, we even asked to see another room when our option was just two double beds however a larger bed and a sofa bed left no room for anything else. I would think that would be our only complaint about this hotel is that 2 double beds is just not enough bed space especially if staying with 2 couples in one room. If they could expand to 2 queens it would be much more adequate. Enough of the bad, lets get to the good. Rooms were nice and clean, and quiet too especially if you left the fan running. AC worked great and the beds were comfortable as well. Bathrooms were pretty standard, but clean and functioned well. We were travelling with our dog and there is good green space around the hotel (that is not part of the golf course) for airing out your pet. The pool/hot tub area is a good size and there is an outdoor patio area with views of the golf course that looked nice as well. We ate breakfast at the hotel two mornings, it is not free but is reasonably priced and has enough options to satisfy almost anyone. We enjoyed our stay and staff were friendly and helpful. Bonus of free wi-fi and many outside access points so your room is never far from where your parked your vehicle.

    My family and I stayed a night here while my daughter was taking her orientation at a nearby college. At first walk in we noticed the room was a little small but very nicely decorated. The pool and spa are extremely large, larger than most hotels and the food was very good with a great selection on the menu. The staff is very friendly and helpful as well. We would definitely recommend this hotel for a wonderful stay!

    « Great food, average in other respects »

    Great food in restaurant--much better than expected and pleasant surprise. Use local syrup and other quality ingredients and enjoyed our room service breakfast as well. Very quick to respond to requests and awesome chocolate chip cookies in lobby too. Average to poor quality of mixed drinks (and expensive esp. for area) and service at bar, and average room, decor, etc. Tiniest hotel bathroom in the world?Would nonetheless recommend given options in area and quality aspects compensating for lesser ones.

    check in help was a little unprofessional but the stay at the hotel was nice and the accommodations were great for the business trip I was on.

    « Simple & Clean »

    It was a bit expensive for a small room on the off-season. The room was small but the bathroom was tiny. The mattress was comfortable but unusually tall. I had no issue but if you have small children, elderly, or someone with a disability it could be difficult to get into bed. Over-all I would say this is probably the best place close to Canton NY to stay at.

    « Best Western awesome place to stay. »

    We stayed at the Best Western the week-end of July 1, 2017. We stayed in the King Executive room. It was a wonderful week-end. We ate our meals in the restaurant, had drinks in their lounge and everything was excellent. We also used the hot tub and swimming pool which were the best. We had a patio overlooking the golf course. Room service was wonderful. Bathroom was small but was the only complaint I could think of. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Will be staying there again and this was not our first time with them either. It just keeps getting better.

    « Could have been better »

    We just needed a place to stay en route, and this one seemed to fit the bill in terms of price and TripAdvisor ratings. Overall, not a bad place - the room was clean and reasonably comfortable. Two things knocked it down to four stars. We were in room 145, and all through the night, I was awoken by some cycling mechanical noise, which turned out to be in the wall next to our window (probably some sort of ventilation). However, far more annoying was trying to get breakfast the next morning. I had chosen this hotel in part because it had a restaurant that served breakfast, and I absolutely need a super-high protein, very low carb breakfast each day (e.g., 3 egg omelette). When we went down for breakfast at about 8:30, the hostess told us that there would likely be a long wait before we got our food because they were understaffed, and tables of 12, 8, and 6 had just sat down (it's worth noting that the restaurant was definitely less than 50% full). We asked for suggestions for other options, and the hostess and a waitress walking by offered two. We went off in search of these two places, only to find that one was closed (permanently?) and the other couldn't be found. So 30 minutes later we found ourselves back at the hotel, preparing ourselves for whatever wait was necessary to get food. On the plus side, the front desk person (who I had complained to on our way out) saw us come back and graciously offered us complimentary breakfasts for our trouble; that's why the place gets 4 stars and not several stars less. And the breakfasts were pretty decent (although don't bother with the Canadian bacon - each of the two pieces was about the size of a silver dollar). It's worth noting that if you can do Dunkin Donuts for breakfast, there's one of those right across the street. So all in all, not a bad hotel, but just not a great experience. And they seem to care about making things right.

    I have used this hotel for 4 years now. My son went to one of the colleges in the area. I have seen some reviews that want to make this hotel seem like a small hotel in a small town. It's not! The area has a lot of thing to do, you just have to look around. Now for the hotel, it is a beautiful,upscale hotel for a great price! They have made upgrades that are beautiful. The rooms are clean and comfortable, you have free wifi,A/C, TV ,room service etc. you have a golf course next door, restaurant and pub next door and Canada 20 -25 minutes away. Besides the local attractions. The staff actually remember you, what? Yes they remember you. They go out of their way to make you feel welcomed and comfortable. The restaurant next store is unbelievable. The food is outrageous. They have a great pub area that is always busy. But here's the unusual thing, you don't have to wait long for a table. I had 16 people come up for the graduatio. We had a beautiful luncheon. You know the food is great when during the main meal no one is talking because everyone is eating! My family came from Florida, California,Connecticut ,NYC and Long Island. They all loved this place. We are going back so we can stay here so we can all visit Canada. And it's not that far away, fly into Syracuse airport, rent a car and in 2 hours you are there. That's less time than driving to work on the LIE. Again just stay here! You are not going to find a better place to stay.

    I was here for two nights. The first night there was a dinner served for the conference I was attending. The food was very good. The hotel room had two double beds. The bed were comfortable but as others have stated they were very high. A child could have difficulty getting on and off the bed. I did not like the pillows that were in the room. Also, when the person in the room above me had a shower ? the sound from the water pipes was very loud in my room. Also, I had to get them to program my room key 3 times before it would open the room door and for some reason, the bathroom did not contain any Kleenex tissues. Overall, the room was clean and comfortable ? although with 2 double beds it was a bit tight. If I am ever in Canton NY again, I will most likely stay here.

    If you are travelling to visit one of the schools in Canton, this is the right place. Overall, the rooms are very organized and clean. It has a good size fitness area, a swimming pool and sauna. It also has a restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can also order room service. My criticism are as follows: a) the beds are too high; b) the standard soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion are too small and watery (bring your own); c) restaurant food is good but service is a bit slow. D) Most importantly, upon check in, I was told that card will be held for a $25 incidental fee. I checked with my girlfriend who stayed at this Inn last October 2016 and she told me that this did not happen to her. At check-out and I was at the front desk to do my check-out, the front desk personnel failed to provide me with my end of stay statement of charges. I had to call them and request to send it to me by email for which they had promised that they will do. Despite of the promise, I did not receive an email from them. I had to keep checking my credit card charges to ensure that they only charged me for the meal that I signed to my room. So beware of the incidentally "Incidental Fees".

    Lovely room, great staff, and very pleasant pool room overlooking the golf course. On a prior visit, I had the entire pool room to myself. Very clean rooms. Beds are exceptionally comfortable. Canton does not have many restaurants, so the hotel restaurant is really vital. If I had one complaint it would be to step up the quality.

    This is the 10th issue for us at this hotel. Always told ' it won't happen again' but it does and this time we were told We could change the sheets! Unbelievable! They obviously do not care or it would not continue. Pubic hair, urine drops, stains and feces are the wonderful gifts in the bed.After a long drive the last thing you want is to deal with is this.If it weren't for company using this hotel- which may change, we would never stay here.

    « Do Not Stay Here...The rooms are filthy and they double charge you »

    The catering services and banquet room were excellent. However this does not trickle to the guest services in the hotel and restaurant. The room we stayed in was dirty. The windows were filmy and had specks of dirt on them. The lamps and night stands were dusty and there were fingerprints all over the desk. The top shelf in the closet had a thick layer of dust on that too. We put our clothes there and had to shake them out whenever we took something off. The wait staff in the restaurant rushed us through our dinner. It was not as leisurely as it should have been. We had plenty of time before it closed for the evening. The front desk staff had issues with the billing system. I was preauthorized for my room bill on check in.. then I was preauthroized again when I checked out therefore they were trying to double charge me and would have if my bank did not alert me to the issue. It took me calling corporate to get it ironed out. It was fixed.. but essentially it ruined our very brief one day honeymoon.

    « Not worth the cost »

    The price of this hotel compared to other especially in larger cities is way over priced for what you get. The room was so small with to double beds in it that there was less then 30in around any fixture and wall to move. Bathroom was so small when close shower curtain it and to overlap the toilet to close. Next was the dirtiness of the room. Makeup on pillow cases, a blanket covered in longhair and an odor that is hard to explain.

    « Would be excellent, except--- »

    This hotel is especially nice for family members of Canton residents, offering a discount for them. It also has spacious, clean rooms, a good restaurant (used by locals, we hear), is next to a golf course and has fitness and spa facilities. Our only complaint is that the beds in guest rooms are really high--for anyone shortish (as I am) it's necessary either to try out pole-vaulting talents or request a stepstool (I chose the latter). The staff will also remove the frame upon request, but this wouldn't be necessary with regular height beds), There is no free breakfast, but the restaurant that is part of the inn offers very tasty and reasonably priced meals with attentive service. I'd recommend the hotel but warn that if you're not tall, you ask in advance for bed modifications.

    « Friendliness ends at the front desk... »

    Friendliness ends at the front (desk & restaurant). We checked-in and went to our room. In the hallway we passed housekeeping. I had to maneuver my way around their cart. I smiled and apologized as I did so. My apology was received with a blank stare and no attempt to move the cart. The following day, we left our room between 10:30 and 11:30, came back around 5:30 to a messy room. We did not leave our "do not disturb" sign out, so I'm not sure why the room wasn't cleaned. I contacted the front desk, but the woman had just started her shift, so she didn't know why the room wasn't cleaned either. I requested towels, which she gladly brought over, but then realized the garbage needed changing as well. I called the front desk to see if there was someone on staff to pick up the garbage. Unfortunately, there wasn't. Instead, I was brought an oversized garbage bag to empty the garbage into. Upon check-out, I mentioned that our room wasn't cleaned the day before. I was told it's been noted and handed my receipt. Overall, I did not feel as I was treated as a valued guest.

    I have been coming here for 4 years. I bring my son back to college. I would always try to book early because they fill up fast. It is a wonderful place to stay. They have made wonderful up grades. The staff has always been friendly and helpful. The rooms are gorgeous ! And the beds are so so comfortable that as soon as you lie down your asleep. For coffee lovers there is always fresh coffee! The pool is wonderfully refreshing and their work out area is well equipped . The lounge area is my favorite place. It's inviting and comfortable. The food is outrageous !!!!! Delicious !!!!! On this trip I booked a luncheon for my son's College graduation. My family is coming from different states. The rooms they offered and choices of menus was great. And the price was outstanding . I wish I could mention everyone's name here but I don't know them all.

    The hotel was clean but everything was decidedly average. The room was small, and the bathroom in particular was unaccommodating. Very little counter space and the toilet was scrunched up next to the sink. The price was right, so this would be fine for someone traveling alone or maybe even a couple. For three people, it was way too restrictive. Also seemed strange that breakfast wasn't included in the rate.

    « Welcoming, homely, but need to up their game! »

    I'm staying here for the third time. First last August, then March 2016 and then August 2016. My third stay however made me realise something about this inn. They're welcoming and all, however they lack a bell boy. That means you need to bring all your heavy luggage all on your own after a long long journey. Also, this time their staff was inexperienced and staff had just started working, thus, there was delay in everything. The rooms have been updated and look quite nice. However, I'll suggest them to atleast keep an electric racket to kill the flies in their restaurant which disturb me when I'm eating food. Also, it's time they keep umbrellas (if it rains anyday-like today), we had to cancel plans because they didn't have umbrellas and we had to walk. Plus, they should think of moving their lobby somewhere else, get rid of the old carpet in the halls, update their bar. Make it new, modern, breathtaking. It's time!!! Thank you.

    We loved this place! Indoor & outdoor pool area! Many years ago we made an attempt at staying at a Best Western in a different small town. The property, room, bed, and even the bathroom, along with other clientele were so disappointing, we left the hotel without staying, and gave up on the brand. Another small town, looking for a decent place, and I was surprised to see the high ratings on Trip Advisor for this property. They were right! It was recently renovated which is almost always a plus! There are not a lot of choices here, plus it's a university town, which made me keep coming back to it when I was looking for a nice place to stay in the area. I am glad I did! We loved it!

    Bed was soft and cozy. Room was a clean, new and good size but the bathroom was small with that curved shower bar to give you more room in there. Staff was nice. The fitness area was clean and seemed new. I tried the gym -- nice cardio machines, water cooler, towels, mat and weight machine. The sauna was in the restroom and seemed brand new. The pool was the same. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant needed some help. The service was inattentive and slow. The blueberry pie was a little sweet (and made elsewhere) but the lemon sorbet that came with it cut it nicely. $6 Cobb salad was a little big for a side salad and small for an entree; they should charge more and do more with it. $9 for pie?

    I have enjoyed 2 delicious meals at the Best Western in the last 2 weeks. Dinner was mahi-mahi with a mango salsa, fingerling potatoes and fresh vegetables. We tried 2 desserts, an over the top chocolate cake and a strawberry rhubarb pie. Yum! The meal was really so good. For lunch,I ordered the Spring salad with strawberries and chicken. It was perfectly "dressed" (not swimming in dressing), and the chicken was prepared really well. My husband ordered a combo of the three cheese grilled sandwich and a tomato bisque soup. He enjoyed both very much. The menu is new and offers options at a variety of price points. Our server this time was Robyn. She was attentive, very friendly and really knew the menu. The newly renovated rooms are very comfortable and attractive. The whole place looks great, and Time Warner has fixed the internet/TV issues.

    Most of the people were extremely nice and I appreciate that! I hold nothing against their hospitality. However, there was one fill-in person in the lounge who was very rude, but I believe she is gone. I think the place was just mismanaged. Sometimes it would take hours for food to come out or you would have to wait a long time to get a beverage. The cable tv system was almost minimal due to ongoing negotiations with TWC. The beds are at least 36 inches off the floor and the rooms are very small. I am sure this hotel will get through its' growing pains and come out on top someday. They have potential!

    « Good Enough »

    It was a pretty basic hotel room. I haven't seen beds that small in awhile. We were there to visit the University in Canton so accommodation wise we weren't expecting anything extravagant. No instructions for the heating system so we kind of froze overnight as we expected to come on intermittently. It was a little disappointing that we were put right next door to a group of hockey players obviously in town for a tournament. The breakfast in the morning was a nice touch.

    They have redone the rooms, the lounge, and the outside. Beautiful job. The rooms are beautifully decorated, they are up to date and comfortable. The lounge is incredible. Totally new decor and it looks fantastic. And the food is out of this world. I especially like the French fries served in little frying baskets. And all of the food is delicious. From the oversized sandwiches to the entrees. I had the salmon, with potatoes and vegetables. There was nothing left on my plate All 4 of us relaxed in comfortable chairs and had an exquisite meal. And the deserts are to die for. And best of all are the hotel rates and the price of the food. Unbelievable! What great prices. Will be visiting again in August, October and the following May. It is located about 30 minutes from Canada. It's a great place to stay and to come back to. And there is a pool and gym, computer site with plenty of work stations. Not to mention coffee and tea anytime you want.

    « Good Hotel »

    This hotel is really good, staff are very friendly and helpful, rooms are clean and comfortable. However, I feel they should include free continental breakfast if you pay more than $168 for just 1 night. There was no phone reception in the room we stayed in, so I had to place my phone on or near the window to receive texts messages and calls. The internet was in and out too but good overall. And I would just ask the hotel make sure every key card is updated/deactivated/activated correctly because a drunk man easily entered our room around 3am even though our door was locked and shut. I believe his key card had access to open our door and his.

    « Not worth the price you have to pay »

    When reservations were made, I was given a quote for a much less price than I actually was charged, which ended up being about $50 more than quoted. I did not receive a confirmation email to verify price. I also later found out that breakfast is not free, and that I was charged for 4 breakfasts when I didn't even have 4 in my party. I called several times to speak with someone about the charges, however, it is very difficult to get a hold of a manager. I was told I would be reimbursed for breakfast, but the reimbursement was never given. If given the choice, stay at another hotel in area. You will get a much better experience for the price you have to pay.

    Recently remodeled room was satisfactory and clean. Rates were way too high. This was the nearest (and only) hotel near what I needed, perhaps that explains why the staff was so nasty. I did notice a hotel being built down the street - if I need to stay in this area again - I hope the new hotel is complete. Pool and hot tub area were a welcome break, the fitness center has lights on a timer which go off after 20 minutes or so, that was irritating as I like to read while walking on the treadmill. Choice of equipment was good and in working order.

    Currently under renovations - we were there on a weekend and the place was a little torn up in some spots but no noise. The work they appear to have done so far was excellent. The pool, workout and spa area was among the nicest I have ever seen - we really enjoyed it. There were a few negatives: 1. The bathroom in the room was very small - toilet literally an inch from the shower 2. Then fan in the bathroom sounded like a piston engine - very loud 3 The TV was a little small .. not a big deal but smaller than most With that said, I would stay there again ....

It is like they go out of their way to make sure you smile when you walk in and out. They treat everyone the same. The food is always good and trust me I have had almost everything on the menu. My burgers and steak have always been at the perfect temp that i ask for. The gym has the right equipment and is a private feel. I have always had a very clean room and a great night sleep.

    « Motel 6 amenities at Ritz Carleton prices »

    I occasionally get to Canton to work with folks at St. Lawrence University. Because the University owns the property, I have to stay at this hotel. The rooms are small and cramped with an especially small bathroom (and a toilet of the style used in public restrooms!). Although the beds are fairly comfortable, albeit on the firm side, the furnishings are very old and tired. The rooms seem fairly clean but smell old. They're in the process of updating the rooms, so we'll see whether the improvements may make the high price a bit more reasonable. During my most recent visit (first week of January, 2016), the WiFi was a source of great frustration and aggravation. For most of my stay I could not connect at all making it impossible to conduct the business I had to do. When I reported this to the front desk, the excuse they made was that there were young athletes staying there with their multiple devices taxing the network. My understanding is that sport teams stay there regularly, so one would think they might consider better bandwidth. I also had a challenge with the heat in the room--I had to open the windows to counteract the excessive heat radiating from the HVAC unit (also very old and tired) in spite of turning the temperature to the coolest setting. The frigid outdoor temperatures helped cool the room readily fortunately. What kept my rating from being 1 star (terrible) is the front desk staff--they are always friendly and helpful (even though there was nothing they could do about the WiFi). My recommendation is that you keep driving to Potsdam (only 10 miles further) to find a better and more reasonable hotel.

    « Parent Group - Great Stay with Good Lounge/Restaurant »

    We were a group of 25+ parents in town for HS hockey. Sonja was extremely helpful with our group reservation and had very good communication. Arrival was no problem other than another youth hockey group was checking out as we were checking in and they had late departure which caused our rooms to be delayed. No problem because the lounge was very comfortable with good service and some of us received free breakfast coupons which were worth the wait! This property had exactly the amenities we needed - onsite full restaurant, lounge, good parking, easy access, fitness room. Food was good - we had lunch and breakfast and late night in the lounge. Lounge open until midnight on Saturday. Downsides - rooms were in the lower level which was a bit claustrophobic with low ceilings. Beds were good, bedding was good. Bathroom was a bit outdated and could use some updating. Towels were a bit "budget" motel. Paid $124/night - probably because they're one of the only large, nicer hotels in town. Would stay again if in the area.

    The University Inn facility is very clean, well maintained and quiet. The complex offers easy access to the local colleges and events in the area of Canton. Golfing, swimming, and ease of walking to the local town are available to those who may be interested in the athletic opportunities. Though a breakfast is not part of the reservation the connected restaurant does provide a very good selection of meal options within a reasonable price with a view of the golf course and depending on the timing a possible view of the local wildlife, deer and birds frequent the course and the ready availability of a freshly cut lawns. The team of staff and management are very friendly and ready to assist to make the stay in the area the most enjoyable. The knowledgeable staff was able to provide options for the customers from the local events calendars with suggestions of area points of interest. I felt that my visit to the area and this facility was very welcoming and a great pleasure to me and my family. I would recommend for everyone to experience this option at least once while visiting the Canton, New York area. I wish to thank all of the staff and management for the comfort I experienced.

    « Parents Hideaway, ideal for visiting kids at SLU »

    There aren't a lot of options in Canton and the Best Western is probably one of the better choices. I ended up staying 7 days, but originally was booked to be in 2 days, miss a night then book in again until the end of my stay due to a visiting sports team. I rang the hotel and asked to be put on a waiting list, and got confirmation of 7 straight nights upon check in: I'd suggest you book as early as possible as this hotel fills very quickly during sports weekends and special events such as graduation. The room was clean and tidy, every thing works, the food is okay (we ate out in town with my daughters team most nights) and the bar is great for parent gatherings, although a little soulless. Really appreciated the DIY Laundry, especially given the length of my stay.

    « Bring back the Lounge - Why the change? »

    Was so very disappointed when visiting the Best Western Lounge recently. The divider wall between the bar and the lounge is no longer there. It is just not the same! The lights are now very bright and the soothing relaxed lounge feel is gone. The missing divider wall between the bar and the tables creates an entirely different atmosphere. Please bring the wall back and dim the lights. Also sad to see the bar menu is missing some of the old favorites.

    This hotel is very old and is in the middle of one of many renovations over the years. There are very few hotels in Canton, NY, so they charge way more than the accommodations are worth. Unfortunately, for those parents visiting to watch their college athletes' competitions, there are very few hotels to choose from. Therefore, they are able to charge ridiculous prices.

    This Best Western has a consistency in their offerings of comfort, convenience, cleanliness and value. Great rooms with a good restaurant, a lounge offering a range of craft beers, a fitness room to work off your restaurant and lounge efforts and fast wireless to ice the cake.

    « limited hotel options but a very good choice »

    in an area with limited hotel options, this hotel provides great value. The hotel bar/restaurant has a very comfortable atmosphere, the entire staff is very courteous and professional, and the hotel is clean (common areas and rooms). Hotel is just finishing some needed remodeling. Cannot go wrong staying.

    « in restructuring, to be avoided, expensive »

    are a customer of the Best Western chain, it had never happened to be staying in a hotel under renovation with poor service and high prices. I hope that after the restructuring even better room service, I did not find it the soap and even the towels! Good luck

    « Rough start but good ending. »

    My family and I drove six hours for a funeral and when we arrived to check in, the woman at the desk had the worst attitude I have ever encountered in my life. I believe her name was Stephanie, she was completely rude and absolutely miserable. After waiting about an hour we were finally able to check-in. The hotel however, was overall very nice. The room was nothing too fancy, it had all the basics needed for an overnight trip. When leaving for the night, the two women at the desk were so very nice and helpful, I believe the one was Brandi and the other was Amanda. And when I arrived back, they were both just as welcoming and happy. This hotel definitely started out on a bad foot but thanks to the two girls working that night, they changed it for the better.

    « STOLE MY EXPEDIA CREDIT »

    My wife and kids booked hotel using our EXPEDIA credit of $117. The front desk required a $25 depisite on a credit card. We do not use credit cards. However my wife had $25 cash which hotel refused. In fact the hotel said of she had $200 cash that would be acceptable. So my wife and and kids decided to find a more accomidating hotel. However the hotel would refund the expedia credit. Stating their policy is no refunds. Howabout having a policy of human decency. So in conckussiin the hotel stole our $ and with out services rendered . All over a lack of a credit card. . This would be like you going out to eat. Ordering and paying for your meal and while you wait the establishment closes kitchen without refundubg your Money. STAY AWAY!!!!

    « Terrible customer service »

    The front desk staff was rude and unwilling to help with a checkin problem!!!! Managers were not supportive with customer service as well. Even had Expedia contact the hotel and they were not able to get hotel staff to support me as a customer. Ended up not staying at this hotel and they would not refund the money. Would never recommend staying here!!!!!

    « The Best Place in Canton »

    Although there are not a lot of places in Canton, this hotel is the best. The staff is always very friendly and the property is very clean. They have a very good fitness room and the property is adjacent to the St Lawrence University Golf Course which I have not played but it looks beautiful. The bed was extremely comfortable and the rooms are quiet.

    « Spend your money on a hotel who takes the time to check up on housekeeping with regular spot checks and cares for guests »

    Sheets had NOT been changed at All and the bed was full of many hairs! We called the front desk and had some one come to the room to see what we were looking at. There was no manager on duty and we were told this isn't the only complaint about this!! There were 2 beds in the room and no one even offered to change the sheets at all. This is totally UNACCEPTABLE.

    « Very comfortable »

    Very convenient location for visiting Saint Lawrence College. The room was quiet and tidy. There wasn't a lot of space but we didn't need much. The price was right and the cookies were great. Staff was nice.

    « An average stay with the cons outweighing the pros »

    I found myself way upstate for work in early September and opted for a 2-night stay at the Best Western University Inn as my base camp for a number of things I had to do in the area. It is located very close to St. Lawrence University and was east of the main downtown area. Check-in was quick and the front desk person was lovely and friendly. I went into my room and was happy at its size and the basic amenities it offered. As a place to stay and sleep, it was fine, but there were elements of the room and experience that turned me off a bit: 1) The toilet was squeezed so tightly next to the sink that it was uncomfortable to sit on. 2) The hotel cleaning staff did not get a chance to come into my room. Granted, I had the "do not disturb" sign on my front door, but I had taken it off when I left my room at 9:30 am for the day hoping that they would clean it by the time I returned that afternoon. 3) The air conditioner is quite loud and old. I had it on the coldest setting and it would turn off as the temperature regulated in the hotel room, then kicked in again with quite loudly. It was hard to sleep when it would randomly turn on again, and the weather was not cool enough outside to have it turned off. 4) I woke up at 8:00 am to the sound of a bulldozer putting dirt on the grass area near my hotel room. It would tap on the curb as it got all the dirt out. If they're still doing construction, try to opt for a room away from the front. Overall, it wasn't a terrible stay (especially given the limited options in a small town like Canton), but I wouldn't go back.

    « Great choice »

    Since everything was booked in Potsdam where we were doing the college drop off we skipped over to Canton. I loved this hotel and usually stay at a much more expensive hotel in Potsdam. Clean rooms, very quiet and lovely folks at the desk. No complaints and would def stay here in the future.
