Great value, great breakfast

We traveled to Rochester for a wedding, and Staybridge was a fantastic spot for us. Loved the breakfast, and loved having a drink on the back patio with a fantastic view of the river.

Only one night and we slept marvelously

Excellent suite accommodations and would highly recommend. Toilet didn't flush completely, but we stayed for one night and we figured housekeeping will notice the issue in the morning.

NY Visit

We really enjoyed this hotel. We stayed tow nights here during our 10 day NY trip. This was the best hotel out of 5 we stayed in during this vacation. Staff was very friendly. Breakfast was good. We were surprised by special social time free dinner on Thursday night. Location was also perfect for us since we were right next to the trails by the river.

Great all around!

Took my wife and niece and nephew to Tochester for the weekend to visit the Strong Museum. Hotel had indoor pool, great breakfast, wonderful staff! The pool was too cold for the kids, but hey the outside temp was single digits. Rochester in January, huh? That was literally the only downside to our trip. Rooms were awesome, quiet, and very clean. We will return...

Ill never stay here again

I always read hotel reviews and found myself skeptical about both the really good, and the really bad reviews. From now I will definitely be more receptive to the bad. I graduated from the U of R in 2010, and had great expectations for the hotel and my stay. I brought my niece and 2 nephews to this hotel (ages 5, 8 and 11). We went out to get food and upon our return I was stopped by the front desk clerk and informed that 4 men had come by asking for me by name and room number and people were calling trying to get into get to my room. I was scared to death, only 2 other people knew where we were staying -my best friend and my boyfriend...so I started to have a panic attack. My best friend came by to see me, and was immediately confronted by the same front desk clerk who told her that she could not come in because there were already 4 people in our room. It was a very large suite, and for the amount I paid per night I should be able to have someone stop by and say hello. She lives in Rochester, and has a husband and child so she had no intention of staying the night. He told her she had to leave, and threatened to kick me out. She called me from the parking lot to tell me she saw guys sneaking in through a side entrance. I went down to tell him that whoever it was that gave him my room number must have gotten the room number mixed up and that there probably IS a party going on but its definitely not in my room...and that people were sneaking in the side entrance...HE HAD NO REACTION TO THIS INFORMATION. He just blankly stared at me and dismissively said okay to everything I was saying to him. Then all of a sudden instead of four men coming by looking for me it turned into four children from off the street came to the hotel looking for me...and they didnt ask for me by name...In fact HE didnt even know my name...HE WAS LYING and for NO apparent reason! The only children that I know were with me. When I asked to speak to a manager he tells me there isn't one. This is absolutely absurd! I can't believe I wasted my money on this stay, and trust me I NEVER WILL AGAIN! To top it all off, I just noticed the base of the lamp in the bedroom is broken...I'll probably get charged $150 for it.
