    We were visiting Cornell and the location was convenient. It was relatively affordable as well.

    I typically cant count on Best Western's to have a quality, clean experience at an affordable price. The room itself was relatively nice. The bathroom was OK, not great and the building smelled like cigarette smoke - a real turn-off.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    I thought it was very nice and luxurious. The breakfast that was included was great and the personnel at the hotel were very friendly and helpful.

    Everything was great!

  • Older travelers

    Room was clean and comfortable.

    Buffet breakfast was poor. The orange juice ran out and one of the coffee pots was not working. The dining area was located too far away from the food.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    Close to senior facility next door

    Pool needs some serious maintenance - should be heated

  • Group of friends

    Close to senior living facility next door.

    The pool could use some help. Like walking on a mattress.

    Disgusting _stained bed linens.

    It's the helping approach of personnel of BWUI...Thanx a Tonnn to all of them who made my maiden trip n stay in America so pleasant and safe. Kudos to Team BWUI...

    Very nice room, clean, large bath countertop which is great for getting ready in the morning. They gave us 3 large bath towels which comes in handy when us females have hair and need 2 towels. I always have to check the towels when staying at a hotel. The windows open so you can get fresh air.

    The internet connection was a bit slow.

  • Single

    Convenient to Cornell, shuttles (did not use, though).

    Flies in my room but no fly swatter. Chilly pool in shade (late afternoon) - with padlocked gate!

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    I really enjoyed the option of having the hotel driver take us into town - sometimes, parking is tricky in Ithaca, and our stay occurred during a popular 'tourist' weekend.

    there were a few issues about our reservation that we didn't like - the fact that they didn't honor our basic room choice, the fact that the room they put us in didn't even have two chairs, the fact that the room we ended up in didn't have enough outlets to plug in our computer to do any work on it, and the fact that the main service personnel left their job incomplete, and their supplies in our bathroom on Saturday.

  • Family with children
    8.2

    Comfortable hotel, in an easy access quiet location.

    There was a bit of a problem initially with the reservation from Booked.net. It took an evening to sort out, but eventually the billing was correct. I had to show print out to verify.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    We stayed here for Cornell University's Homecoming weekend. Our room was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The working gas fireplace was a nice extra for a chilly rainy night!

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Fairly easy access to downtown Ithaca. Very close to Cornell.

    Difficult to regulate room temperature.

  • Family with children
    6.2

    Staff were polite. Breakfast passable, rooms adequate

    blowing heater

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    Nice clean room

    The cost for pet was too high.
