Conveniently located near the Fair and amphitheater. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Great customer service from the time we walked in. Convenient location and free parking. Clean room. Clean Bathroom and clean refrigerator

The first room they gave us, bathroom had not been cleaned. Staff immediately gave us a different room, which was clean and comfortable. This is our 3rd time staying at this Best Western; they also have a great steakhouse restaurant right on the premises. We would stay again.

Our room was directly above the restaurant so the music would have kept us up if it weren’t for our air conditioner. This hotel is simply dated and a bit depressing. With so many hotels in Syracuse, book another one

We Spent 3 nights at Best Western at the Fair Grounds and were very comfortable. We enjoyed the free breakfast. Our beds were comfortable. It was very nice to come back to a quiet room after long days of conference.

Nice place. Restraurant attached for lung and dinner. Very small place so reservations are needed. Good food there. Complimentary breakfast good. Lots of variety.

We went for the Baseball Hall of Fame induction and couldn't afford to stay in Cooperstown. This was very convienent though. The rooms were nice, and employees pleasant. Would recommend,

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.

Clean, convenient, comfortable. It is a good hotel

Booking website led me to believe this hotel was in the center of Syracuse, but really it is on the outskirts surrounded by ugly factories, train tracks, and empty fairgrounds. However the hotel was nice and clean on the inside. Everything was fine until we tried to go to sleep and there were several families with young children letting them run constantly up and down the hall on the floor above us at midnight and 1am. We called the front desk several times and they really did nothing to try and help the situation. These same kids were up and running before 7am. The whole reason my husband and I booked this room was to get one precious night away from the noise of our OWN kids, and for that reason it was a complete waste of money. We were very disappointed. However after we complained the corporate office sent us a $35 gift card for a future stay. Next time we will request a "quiet area room" and see if that is better.

Needed a room for a short stay prior to a wedding and Best Western delivered. Room was very clean, reasonably well appointed, and while breakfast was run of the mill, it alleviated the need to stop at McDonalds or similar. Bed was very nice - firm - and linens were in good condition. While a little off the beaten path (seems to be towards the middle of nowhere), unless you are specifically visiting the fairgrounds, it was not so far that it made no sense. Overall good stay and wouldn't hesitate to book another night. Maintains my Best Western brand expectations.

this is a great best western just about walking distance from the nys fair grounds,would highly recommend this hotel

Nice rooms, clean, fresh linen, large tv, beautiful bathroom, very clean. Very nice staff; friendly and helpful.

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.

Room was excellent and clean. Good free continental breakfast. Easy on and off from NY Thruway during traveling.

Thank you for the review! we apologize for first room that you were put into. There was a miscommunication between maintence and housekeeping Which led to a room being marked clean which should not have been. This is something that we deeply regret and offer our most sincere apologies for. We have spoken with all staff involved in this incident to ensure that this remains an isolated incident. Thank you again for writing a review, we appreciate the feedback and hope you will choose our hotel next time you are back in the area.
