I had a quick overnight stay in Olean. I was pleasantly surprised by the Best Western there. The staff was exceedingly friendly and helpful. The hotel itself was clean and well kept, and my room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The pool and exercise room looked nice, but (unfortunately) I didn't have time to enjoy either personally. For the price,...

We also enjoyed the fine dining at Alex's in the hotel. The excellant location of the hotel at Osweg provides us the base ffrom which we...

This hotel offers everything that you would need for a day or a week-long stay. Includes indoor pool, fitness center, self-laundry, and very good breakfast [but in a room that is too small when the hotel is full]. Pleasant and professional staff throughout.

The hotel is very clean and the rooms are beautiful. Recent renovations make this even nicer than it was before. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast was delicious. Great location and easy to find. We will always stay at the BW when traveling through Olean.

We loved the new BW plus in Olean. Very clean, large rooms with fridge and microwave. Comfortable beds and nice size bathrooms. Very nice breakfast with hot offerings. The large flat screen TV was a nice addition.

Nice, clean place with a good breakfast. Desk people are accommodating and friendly. Location is good: not far from downtown but not too close. Parking is fine, there is a Walmart across the road and places to eat nearby. The room TV is good and the stations available are OK, but nothing special. Overall, I'd stay here again if visiting...

Came in around 11.00 pm. Good service and a nice and clean hotel. Very nice rooms and exactly how it should be. Finding it a little bit outsude the centre of Oleans was easy. Great stay for a family passing through.

this was the best BW I have stayed in. The Hotel exceeded all of ours expectation. The entire staff was great, but Trevor, Cindy and Ashley was the one we had the pleasure of meeting. On the behalf of my family I would like to thank them for making our stay so pleasurable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
