    Friendly and helpful staff. Good rates. Nice spacious rooms. Outdoor pool to relax by. Centrally located to colleges, restaurants, shopping, wineries, state parks with waterfalls and hiking and biking trails.

    Dear rockyrose17, We truly appreciate your kind comments! I believe our location is ideal for guests visiting the colleges and just for relaxing with a hike or wine tour. We hope to see you again in the future, especially for fall foliage. Best, Jim McMann

    Amenities were as expected at a Best Western, clean, comfortable, inexpensive. Convenient to downtown and Cornell, walk to several good restaurants. Tiny pool nobody seemed inclined to use. Standard BW free breakfast fare.
