Great basic hotel, excellent restaurant

Pros: Good price, new comfortable beds, clean lobby, clean room, clean bathroom, cozy steak house on premises (excellent steak & wine selection), free WiFi, plentiful parking, friendly staff. Cons: Bathtub floor not that clean, included breakfast was so-so in selection and quality, in-room TV was old tube style, location is somewhat far from points of interest (nothing within walking distance), hotel staff not the most knowledgeable about the area although they're very friendly. 4 out of 5 stars for a very nice basic hotel.

College-bound family trip

This was our first trip from Hawaii to Syracuse and we stayed here for two days. We stopped here to shop at the nearby shopping mall for our college-bound daughter and found that it was conveniently close and easy to find. For the price, this hotel was perfect for our stay, and the breakfast was great with hot and cold food. Quiet, good parking, but no pool. I can see where it is the best location if you are planning for the state fair. There is a friendly convenience store up the road in case you want an extra cup of coffee, bottled water, snacks, etc.

Great staff

My family travels to syracuse at least once a year to visit family. This was our first time at the best western inn at the fairgrounds. It was a very good experience. Free breakfast, nice staff and very clean. This will be our choice on the next visit.
