"Good value in Oxford"

4
13/10/2018

Met friends in Oxford. Other hotels were $40 more per night. This BW was very comfortable and breakfast was just as good as others. Room was all in working order. Property is a little dated but a very good value.

"College visit to Univ of Miami economical, clean and comfy"

23/09/2018

My daughter and I stayed at the Best Western Sycamore Inn for a college visit. It was clean, comfy and had a microwave and large mini-fridge. Less expensive than the Hampton Inn, it had a free breakfast and indoor pool. Close to the university and High Street. Very happy I went with this hotel.

"Wonderful Staff"

5
23/08/2018

This hotel has wonderful staff members who go out of their way to make the experience pleasant and care-free. I will always choose this hotel when staying in Oxford, Ohio! The location is perfect for anyone visiting Miami University as it's walking distance from the Main business district and very close to campus. Thank you for another perfect stay in Oxford.

"Weekend trip"

30/07/2018

Nice clean place near campus. Enjoyed the breakfast and how friendly the staff was to me and my wife. If I was going to a Miami football game this is the place I would choose. Walk across the stadium parking lot and you're at Yeager! Keep up the good work Best Western!

"Stayed for a Wedding"

4
10/07/2018

My family of five (two adults and three kids) stayed overnight on May 26th because we were attending a wedding in town. Check-in that day was smooth and the room (a standard with two queen beds) was clean and comfortable. The roll-away bed we requested for our oldest barely fit in the room, but we made it work by moving some furniture around. It wasn't a big deal since we were only staying one night, but I could see it being an issue for a family that is staying for a longer period of time. The kids used the pool twice during our stay (once before the wedding, and again after) since it was open 24 hours ... This was probably the highlight of the weekend for them! :) The free breakfast Sunday morning was great! We arrived toward the end of the service, but there was still plenty of food left for us to choose from and/or make (pancakes, waffles).

"Recommended. Inexpensive choice & ideal location."

4
13/06/2018

Exactly as reviewed. Very clean, good service, high value, inexpensive very walkable to Miami's campus and Oxford's uptown restaurants. We were there in the summer so it was very quiet. The pool is a nice departure from your standard hotel pool because of the wood look and large windows. I would recommend.

"Nice room upgrades"

4
07/05/2018

While this is an older hotel, the rooms have been upgraded and are very nice. We had a nice stay. the staff was very friendly, the rooms were clean and the location is great. It's just a short walk to uptown Oxford so we have stayed here a few times when we go back to visit.

"Pleasant Old Hotel"

3
06/05/2018

This is an older hotel that has had a little lipstick added to make it appear newer. We stayed here for a soccer tournament and quite frankly, this was the only place to stay nearby. The staff are very nice even when talking with them on the phone. I can't say enough about them. Wonderful people. The management is top notch as I had a small issue that they quickly resolved. Previous reviewers raved about the breakfast. I would say it is nice but not awesome. I'm use to staying in higher star hotels that I pay much less for and have way better breakfast. But hey, you won't go hungry for sure. The common area is awkward and the pool is very small. Don't expect a bar or a great place to hang with your friends. It has a small breakfast lounge with 1 TV and some tables and chairs. The hotel is conveniently located near the main strip of Oxford. We saw lots of students walking around nearby. The hotel is a little secluded from all the downtown stuff but as I said close enough to walk to everything. If you travel a lot like I do, you would rate this a 2-2.5 Star hotel. If you are use to Courtyard by Marriott or Hampton Inn's, this won't be up to those standards just because of lack of amenities and it being an older hotel. The hotel does have newer hallway carpet and room colors and furnishings. The bathroom is awkward as you have to be almost sitting on the toilet for the door to shut. The shower and sink we newer with hot water on demand. This may be your only option when staying in Oxford. You'll get a decent night sleep at a higher than normal price. Enjoy your stay, we did but I can only rate average for lack of amenities. If I were rating the staff it would have been 5 stars.

BW_OXFORD, Manager at Best Western Sycamore Inn, responded to this review
Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Glad you enjoyed your stay with us over the weekend. Thanks for the wonderful comments about my staff, If your travels every bring you and your soccer team back to Oxford, please come stay with us again. Kathy Butterfield general manger

"Best “Best Western” Ever"

5
29/04/2018

Coming to Oxford, the Best Western is one of only a few hotel options. And, I wasn't necessary looking forward to it, because anytime I had stayed at a similar type of property, I had been solely disappointed. This, however, amazing — I had a wonderful experience. The staff is friendly, the breakfast is fully stocked, and the amenities are great. Each person at the front counter had a great attitude. One person I specifically wanted to recognize is Rene. She is the lady who takes care of the breakfast buffet. In my travels, I've learned to have low expectations of hotel buffets, as often, food/drinks are out of stock, coffee can be stale, and the environment is displeasing. However, at this Best Western, the breakfast is the real deal. I stayed at the hotel for four days and looked forward to breakfast each day. This, in my view, is because of the work that Rene does. She is courteous, kind, and humble, doing her very best to serve all the patrons. Overall, I'm very excited to stay at this hotel if I ever visit Oxford, OH again.

"Nice, Clean Hotel Walking distance to Miami University, Oxford, OH"

25/04/2018

Location Excellent walking distance to Miami University - Stayed at for Make It Miami Day Service Friendly - a little goofy as there was someone checking in when I arrived, but there were two people working the front desk. After waiting at least 5 minutes, the other person asked if she could help me. Not sure why she didn't ask right away unless she was also helping the other person check in? She was friendly Rooms Basic hotel room, but clean and comfortable beds - pillows ok Food Nice complimentary breakfast. Looked good - waffle maker, fruit, yogurt…Since we had a free breakfast at the university we only grabbed a muffin and apple.

This hotel is in a perfect location and has the best staff. Everyone is friendly and genuinely want to make your stay one you will pleasantly remember. It is a lovely hotel with comfortable beds/rooms and provides a great breakfast. If you get the chance to stay here, take it!

"Top Customer Service"

12/04/2018

The staff is top notch - I needed a last minute room and the general manager was incredibly helpful and gracious. The hotel is close to Miami U., very clean, and well managed. Great for families traveling to Miami U for graduation, visits, etc.

"Great Location & Great People"

10/04/2018

I stayed during a college visit. The location is excellent relative to the campus. Plus, the staff could not have been nicer. From the front desk crew, manager, and cleaning service...everyone was top notch. #bestwesternsycamoreA+

Shout out to MONICA at the front desk. She went over and above to make us comfortable. Our daughter was ill and Monica couldn't have been any kinder and friendlier to us. Thank you. Will stay here again because of her.

"Great Staff"

10/04/2018

I had a great room, and that staff was so helpful. The GM helped me book my room and was so friendly. This is the place i always stay when i travel to The Oxford Ohio. It is in a great location and close to the campus.

"Best Western, Oxford, Ohio"

21/12/2017

This was a difficult time for my family as we were gathered in Oxford for a memorial service for my sister who had recently passed away from breast cancer. The people at Best Western gave us a place to meet and have other family members and friends from town join us. Thanks to Kathy Butterfield, General Manager, Kathleen and Cody. At breakfast time, we had a wonderful time with Linda Sweet, who helped us out a lot. You guys are the greatest!

"Wonderful Stay"

04/12/2017

The staff could not be more accommodating and wonderful. The rooms are large and the beds very comfortable. You cannot beat the location. Breakfast is yummy and presented so beautifully. If you are in Oxford, this is the place to stay!!

"The only place I would stay at"

26/11/2017

The staff are the nicest group of people I've ever come across on a hotel. Monica the receptionist is thee best. Rooms are clean and they attend to any issues right away. It is the only hotel I would stay at in Oxford.

"Clean, Cozy and Friendly"

5
11/11/2017

We travel quite a bit for my daughter's medical needs, and at no other hotel that we have stayed at were the staff so helpful. It is a cozy and charming environment that served our needs just right. Not once did I struggle with my daughter's wheel chair and the door. The staff were all friendly and helpful and greeted us when they saw us. We will be coming back.

"Love this hotel!"

4
11/11/2017

This is one of the nicest hotels my husband and I have ever stayed at! The staff was so friendly and helpful. The breakfast was decent. We stayed here for a concert and loved that it was within walking distance so we didn't have to park my husbands truck downtown. This is a very safe area. We had no concerns.

"Warm Welcoming Staff"

09/11/2017

I would recommend the conveniently located Best Western in Oxford, Ohio! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and the room was clean and comfortable. The pool looked very inviting, but we forgot our bathing suits!

"BED BUGS!"

1
19/10/2017

BED BUGS! Room 201 I woke up with bites on my neck, arms and back. When I checked out and told the manager. She took my name, number, and email and told me the general manager would call me in the afternoon. I never got a call. They didn't give me a receipt because they were going to discount my rate after the GM came in and email my receipt (even though I told her it didn't matter because my work pays my expenses). I never got an email either. Besides all that BS, the hotel is outdated. I'll update my post if I ever hear back, but I won't be holding my breath...

BW_OXFORD, General Manager at Best Western Sycamore Inn, responded to this review
First, I would like to apologize for not getting back with you yesterday. I have been out sick with the flu. I spoke with my front desk staff about your stay and room. I immediately called the company that does our monthly inspections. They were here at the property within 20 minutes. They found nothing in the room, they inspected and did a very thorough check, pulled everything off all the walls, and found No signs of any insects anywhere. I will be emailing your receipt for your stay. If you would like to speak with me, or speak with the company that handles our inspections I would be more than happy to. Feel free to email my any time at [email protected] or call us toll free 800-523-4678

"Overpriced"

2
16/10/2017

An economy hotel priced as if upper end. Hotel is banking on its location next to Miami University to maintain artificially high room rates. The staff at the hotel was very nice and helpful. HVAC in rooms need to be updated.

BW_OXFORD, General Manager at Best Western Sycamore Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to give us a survey, and thank you for the nice comments about my staff. We are the closest property to Miami University, however we are not the most expensive. We take pride in our property, and all the amenities we have to offer our guests. Four walking blocks to uptown, hot breakfast, 24 hour indoor pool and whirlpool, each room having a microwave and refrigerator, and so much more. We have our budgets prepared well in advance to allow us to operate the property in a fiscally responsible manner, part of the budget process includes looking at high demand weekends, and being next to campus each fall weekend is in very high demand. We have to try to obtain revenue during peak periods to cover us for those times of year when we are less busy. I have encountered similar situations at hotels, and in fact all other kinds of services, that follow this budget process. We hope we will have the opportunity to be your host again in the future. Kathy Butterfield general manager.

"Close to campus"

15/10/2017

The hotel is very convenient to campus and the Uptown area. The room was comfortable, but somewhat dated. The pool area was clean and fun for the family. We especially enjoyed the friendly staff who made check in and breakfast enjoyable.

"Good hotel and great rate"

4
14/10/2017

This hotel has the basics covered. Clean simple room, standard breakfast and friendly staff. Walk to downtown is handy. At half the price of other options this was a great deal. I would definitely return for this price.

"Enjoyable Stay"

28/08/2017

This Best Western Sycamore was in a great location to everything in Oxford easy walk. We enjoyed the breakfast very much. The breakfast had a nice variety of items. The staff was extremely friendly and willing to help out in any way they could to make sure we were happy with the BW

"Great Location and Friendly Staff!"

22/08/2017

We stayed here for a family reunion at Hueston Woods. The hotel is conveniently located to either enter the park on the side of the lodge or the side of the Nature Center. It is also within walking distance to central Oxford and convenient to the college. The staff were so friendly and helpful. I left items in the room after check out and when I called they promptly retrieved them and held them until I could return from Hueston Woods to pick them up.

"Clean rooms, lovely 24-hr. indoor pool, great staff, great breakfast!"

21/08/2017

Spent the night here with my sister after attending a wedding. Would definitely stay here again. Very nice facility and friendly staff. Only reasons I didn't rate it 5 stars: crowded parking; and a mix-up with my reservation that gave me only 1 bed instead of the 2 I'd asked for, so I had to sleep on a rollaway bed crammed in among the furniture. Hotel was totally full so no other options that night. But Guest Services Supervisor sought me out in the morning to try to make amends.

"Best front desk team in the business!"

5
17/08/2017

The Oxfrod Best Western front desk team lead by Monica is the best in the business! Close to campus. Check in a customer leave as a friend. Reasonably priced for a town with minimal choices in this college town.

"Great Option for MU visitors"

4
29/06/2017

Such a great option for parents of Miami students. Super friendly staff and clean, functional rooms. Hotel is steps away from campus. We have stayed here twice so far and each time, the staff has been very helpful with choices of restaurants in Oxford. We will be back!

"Pleasant stay in Oford"

24/06/2017

I stayed for three nights at the Sycamore Inn while my house was being painted. (I actually live in Oxford) Making the reservation online, using the Best Western website, went without any problems. Checkin was smooth, although the young male clerk lacked a welcoming attitude. My first-floor room was near an exit, and had two queen beds, small desk, small microwave, frig, and large-screen TV. The room and bath were very clean. The AC worked perfectly. I did not use the pool but it and the area around it looked attractive. The breakfast was the usual, with cereal, do-it-yourself pancakes, hard-boiled eggs, yogurt, bagels and small danish, juice, etc. The people at the front desk were very friendly and accommodating, with the exception of the person on duty at check-in. My room was very quiet - no issues with noise at all. All together, a very pleasant stay while I waited for my house to be painted!

BW_OXFORD, General Manager at Best Western Sycamore Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for all your wonderful comments about our hotel, and staff. So glad you enjoyed your stay at my hotel while your house was being painted, and you were able to enjoy our new breakfast room, and make your own pancakes. I will check into the desk agent that checked you in and speak with him about being a little more welcoming. Thanks for letting us be your home away from home. Kathy Butterfield General Manager

"Great stay"

22/05/2017

Nice motel near Miami University check in staff amazing friendly and flexible. Room was great size. Didn't try free breakfast. Only complaint would be that the back building door(s) sometimes don't lock all the way unless you push them in and felt unsafe if someone can get into building without a key... would still stay here when visiting!

"College Visit"

4
16/05/2017

Great for an overnight stay while enjoying the college town. The pool was open 24 hours. There was a mini office area for printing maps, but the host was more informative than the internet. Clean and quiet! Breakfast was a typical free breakfast but then the hostess went above and beyond to accommodate a nut/sugar allergy. I would definitely stay here again.

BW_OXFORD, General Manager at Best Western Sycamore Inn, responded to this review
Thanks for taking the time to fill out a survey. Glad to hear you enjoyed our 24 hour pool and hot tub. I was really happy to read that we went above and beyond with our breakfast as well. We look forward to you staying with us again. Thanks Kathy Butterfield general manager

Okay hotel for Oxford, OH. Close to Miami University. Clean hotel with basic continental breakfast. Updated common areas (lobby, pool, breakfast). Microwave and refrigerator in room. Room bath area (sink) needs updating.

"Best is a relative term"

02/05/2017

There are very few hotel options in Oxford. This was an old motel with 2 floors, no elevator and very dated. There were not convenient placement of outlets although the room was acceptable. The staff were extremely nice, friendly and polite and are the reason I gave it 3 stars instead of 2. The price however was awfully high for what you get but once again, there are not many hotel options in Oxford. Breakfast was mediocre and I had never seen a gravy dispenser before. Once again, the best thing about this place was the staff.

BW_OXFORD, General Manager at Best Western Sycamore Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the nice comments about my staff. I will share them with my whole team. I was sad to read that you feel our hotel is very dated, we just remolded a year ago, and have updated everything, from the lobby to breakfast, to all 61 guest rooms. We have never had an elevator at our property, so next time your travels bring you to Oxford, please request a first floor room, so you don't have to climb 12 steps. Not sure what you were looking for as far as breakfast? We go above and beyond with the Best Western standard breakfast, people really compliment us on our waffles, pancakes, omelets, breakfast sandwiches, and above all the Bob Evans gravy. I don't understand your comment about outlets. After our upgrade, we added outlets at each of the nightstand lights, TV lamps, as well as the desk lamps. Six more outlets for each room. You mentioned not many places in Oxford, I will agree with you, however let me explain a little bit about Oxford hotels, and rates. Being in a college town each weekend is at high demand. I've also encountered similar situations at hotels, sporting events, plans, and in fact, all other kinds of services that come into high demand during certain periods. While this may not seem fair, I know as a hotel operators we have budgets prepared well in advance to allow us to operate the properties in a fiscally responsible manner. Part of that budget process includes looking at rates that might be higher than typical for weekends, or special events. When taken on the average with the rates at other times, the overall picture is what needs to be taken into account. We have to try to obtain revenue during peak demand periods to cover us the those times of year when we are less busy. I trust this response has been satisfactorily addressed the concerns you have, and we hope we will have the opportunity to be your host again sometime in the future. Thank you, Kathy Butterfield general manager

Thanks for taking the time to let me know you and your family had a great stay at my property. Love to hear your son was able to relax in the pool and Jacuzzi.

Our skating club recently stayed at BW Oxford OH. The hotel staff was so great, especially Monica. She was nice, friendly, and went out of her way to make sure your stay was perfect. She even asked how our skating team did in the competition - which we won! Hotel and rooms were clean, staff was wonderful, couldn't hear noise from the room next door. Plan to use BW for our next visit.

"What a hidden gem in Oxford"

28/10/2016

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

BW_OXFORD, Manager at BEST WESTERN Sycamore Inn, responded to this review
Thanks for taking the time to write out a survey about our property. So glad to read you enjoyed your stay, and like our popcorn. Hope to see you again soon, if your travels bring you back to Oxford. Kathy Butterfield, general manager

"Pleasant hotel near downtown "

23/10/2016

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

BW_OXFORD, Manager at BEST WESTERN Sycamore Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay. Glad you like our updated rooms, and your bed was comfortable. We will look into the main door, and see how we can fix the light from coming through. Glad you enjoyed breakfast and I will speak with my breakfast hostess about what took place on that Sunday morning. Very sorry this happened, there is no excuse for it. If your travels ever bring you back to Oxford, we look forward to seeing you again. Kathy Butterfield, general manager

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

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

12/10/2016

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

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

BW_OXFORD, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Sycamore Inn, responded to this review
Thanks so much for sending us your comments about your stay. Glad to hear you liked the cookies, and my staff was helpful. Hope your team did great in the tournament. Hope to see you again next year. We will work on the shower heads. Kathy Butterfield

"Great and economical option for the Oxford area"

12/08/2016

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

BW_OXFORD, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Sycamore Inn, responded to this review
Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments about my staff and hotel. It was great meeting you, and wish you luck on the job interview. I agree with the gps going into Hamilton. We replaced the alarm clock in the room, and checked out the light bulbs in the room. Thanks again, good luck. Kathy Butterfield.

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

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

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

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Thanks for the very nice comments about my staff and property. I will share it with them all.

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

BW_OXFORD, Manager at BEST WESTERN Sycamore Inn, responded to this review

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

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

BW_OXFORD, Manager at BEST WESTERN Sycamore Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to give us feed back. We are so close to being finished with our renovations. We are looking into changing out our breakfast supplier, so more options to come.

"Reservations frequently LOST"

05/03/2016

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

BW_OXFORD, Manager at BEST WESTERN Sycamore Inn, responded to this review
Would love to speak with you myself. If you could give us a call on our toll free number 800-523-4678- I think there is a misunderstanding. Did you give my front desk your confirmation number? Did you receive anything from us? The manager at the Elms is a women, not a man. Graduation is handled all by me, and I don't loose reservations. I believe you have the wrong property. Thank you Kathy Butterfield General Manger

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

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

"Renovating but desperately need work out room"

16/02/2016

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

BW_OXFORD, Manager at BEST WESTERN Sycamore Inn, responded to this review
Thanks for taking the time to give your feed back to us. I was sorry to read that you didn't like our new fitness room. I just wanted to respond to you and let you know that we moved the fitness room to the first floor from over a balcony that was located in our indoor pool area, so this is definitely a step up to what we did have. The next time your travels ever bring you back to Oxford, please let us know and I can personally go pick up an Miami University Recreational Sports pass for you so you can use the equipment over on Miami's campus. As for charging premium rates, when you visit a college town on busy weekends, our rates due increase, due to the demand in rooms. If you like we do offer a Best Western rewards program that is free to join, and we give discounts to members. Kathy Butterfield general manager

"Clean--close option to campus"

08/02/2016

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

We were there for only one night but the lady who welcomed us was so kind and gave us all a bottle of water and told us the pool was open 24 hours. My son was thrilled!

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

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

Thanks for taking the time to give us some feed back about our property. I can only say you were in a room that has not been upgrading to new carpet, painting, crown molding, and drapes. Next time your travels bring you to Oxford, please give us another try- I know you will say WOW then. It's been a challenge to keep rooms open and rent-able while doing all our upgrades, however my staff is doing a wonderful job and I thank you for sharing your nice comments with me, about how friendly they are.
