    Good 6.0
    No frills lodging, but fits the bill. The mattresses hard, brown bag food service limited. Service friendly and helpful. Lodgers be ware, sans notice, your room card is shut off immediately at check out 12noon. Locked out of room w no mask, coat and pet in room, during a snowstorm. BW should make that important fact known clearly.

    Very clean and nice
    We had the jacuzzi tub king size room, very clean and nice room. Only complaint would be the mattress was harder than we prefer but other than that, I enjoyed our night.

    Greta hotel for a good price!
    This was the best hotel we have stayed at in a long time! I have no complaints! They even gave us flowers and chocolates for our anniversary!
    us2 night trip
    Fair 4.0
    The check-in was good. Very nice greeting at check-in. The room (and whole facility) is very old and outdated. Smelled like smokers had been in the hallway and room. Only two bath towels (we had 3 people in the room), pillows and bed both need to be replaced. Food from previous guest was in the refrigerator.
    James, us1 night family trip
    Poor 2.0
    The staff was very nice but the room was terrible. The rooms don’t look like they have been vacuumed in a month, the furniture was broken, the sheets and comforters on the beds were stained, and there was not enough supplies to even adequately take a shower.
    Thomas, us1 night family trip

    Highly recommend this location.
    Donald, us1 night trip
    Very good 8.0
    Our overnight stay was perfect and convenient for our son’s college drop off for spring semester. The room was very clean and parking was very close. Will definitely use Best Western University Inn - Ithaca again.
