because we booked thru travelocity we felt like they put us in the worst room they had! smelled of mold the carpet was wet, the sheets were damp. we had just traveled about 9 hours and were exhausted so I didn't go and complain but they have definitely lost us as a customer. We were told we would not get the normal BW points because we booked thru travelocity.

Lovely staff, small rooms

Pros: Staff was lovely and the location was great.
Cons: Better wifi service, more countertop space in bathroom and the room was very, very small for two double beds.

When I first arrived, the staff was wonderful! When I got to the room, it was a different story. I found a boogger on the sink faucet, hair in the shower and the toilet looked like they just wiped the seat down and forgot about the toilet bowl altogether. When I was ready to sleep for the night I felt like I was in a dorm room and could here people running up and down the halls and yelling.

Good afternoon Renee, I want to apologize for your experience during your recent stay at the Best Western University Inn. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service and cleanliness and we failed to meet those expectations. We hope you will give us the opportunity to provide you superior service by choosing to stay with us again in the future. Have a great day.

Clean and comfortable.

Pros: Friendly staff, bar, room service.
Cons: Doesn't need any major changes.
Location: This is a small town. Everything is close to everything.
With very limited choices in Canton this was one of 2 hotels available. The staff is friendly and willing to help. The rooms are small but adequate and clean. The restaurant and bar have decent food and the bar and room service are available late. Book early for events (hockey games, graduations, etc.) because with so few hotels they fill up quickly.

overall nice hotel.

Pros: The staff was great
Cons: Bathroom could have been cleaned better prior to our arrival. It was cleaned but a quick clean and really should have been a deep clean
Location: close to stores and right on the golf course
Brought my son for a basketball tournament . The Hotel staff was wonderful. The only problem was the location of the lounge. It was fairly loud and we were not impressed with intoxicated people wandering thru the lobby to use the rest room.

Best in Town

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
This hotel is a little unusual... a kind of golf resort. It is older, but not uncomfortable. I wouldn't recommend the restaurant. It was really mediocre. I would rather have gone into town or even to a fast food place. It was not worth the cost. The staff was nice enough, and we slept well. I would only reccomend this hotel because there is no other.

HORRIBLE! Stayed there 2nd floor, Flies, mosquitos, and BUGS. RUDE Staff. Do yourself a favor and stay ANYWHERE ELSE. Not plugging here. STAY at YOUR OWN PERIL. (Potsdam is close and I never tried the Comfort Inn)
