Thank goodness for Jose

I wish that 'Undercover Boss' would come in to give credit to Jose, who fixed the clogged air conditioner in the room above ours that was dripping into the non-working air conditioner in our room, got us a new room, and was found maintaining the messy breakfast bar, which was often times lacking the basics. The pool had a thick sheen that appeared gelatin-like. There was no entertainment despite advertising. All in all: a poor choice. Is this really a Best Western property? Shameful.

Hotel needs some upgrades

The hotel and staff were nice enough and the restaurant food was excellent. The problem was in the bathroom with a child's size toilet so low to the floor that it was difficult to use. The shower head also was not working properly. I complained to the front desk and they said they can fix that one and are slowly replacing the toilets. We were actually bored with five days in the area. The Riverwalk was ridiculous because the shrubbery is so high that you can't see the river, and nothing is easy to get to in this city. This will be our first and last trip to the 1000 island area.

great place to stay

The hotel staff was very courteous and mindful of our needs. They are a great asset to this hotel. We used the workout room and found it quite appropriate to our needs, the breakfast buffet included all that we wanted. We were able to get a few dvd movies from the reception desk at no cost and wifi was easily available . The only negative thing that I could mention was that the pool water was really too warm, we didn't make use of it, concerned about bacteria in such water.

cold

This hotel had what we where looking for, Clean with a pool and a hot breakfast. Unfortunately during our stay it was very cold outside. Temps hit -10 with the wind chill hitting between -25 and -30 below. This caused 3 pipes in the hotel to burst, causing water and flooding through part of the hotel. Luckily not our part, but it forced them to have to turn off the water and heat for a while and cancel the breakfast. During the night the room temp dropped quickly. It was a very cold night. Overall the place was clean. All the staff was very friendly, especially Allison at the front desk.

Not the best.

We stayed in the king suite w. Living rm. I will say I have stayed in worse rooms at different hotels but they were priced about half of what this suite was. With that said book somewhere else. Dirty bathroom and on the pull out couch bed the sheets weren't changed from the previous customers stay which resulted in our son not being able to to spend the night with us. We were in the area visiting him he is stationed at Fort Drum. The complimentary breakfast was only average. The suite had new flat screens with dvd players that worked. The front desk staff was pleasant when I checked in. This is an old hotel. In my opinion this hotel stay could have been better.

Average hotel, but great breakfast

The hotel was a good stop on our way to visiting a nearby college. The room was about average, but the staff and the breakfast were above average and we are used to staying at the Hamptons and Marriotts.

10 Day Stay

I stayed at this hotel for 10 days. I had never been to the area and found it in a great location downtown. The staff was very friendly and even found my ID and debit card that had been missing for days. The beds were comfortable, the TV was updated, and there was always a parking spot. The continental breakfast was above average. The only downside to this hotel is the elevator. It is slow. I did not use the pool or other amenities. The next time I go up I will definitely stay here.
