This is our preferred hotel when visiting family in Canton, NY. Rooms have always been clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff is very friendly, and the hotel is conveniently located close to the center of town and St. Lawrence University. The hotel has a nice restaurant with good food, as well as a great bar/lounge, with a wide selection of...

This hotel is especially nice for family members of Canton residents, offering a discount for them. It also has spacious, clean rooms, a good restaurant (used by locals, we hear), is next to a golf course and has fitness and spa facilities. Our only complaint is that the beds in guest rooms are really high--for anyone shortish (as I am)...

Friendliness ends at the front (desk & restaurant). We checked-in and went to our room. In the hallway we passed housekeeping. I had to maneuver my way around their cart. I smiled and apologized as I did so. My apology was received with a blank stare and no attempt to move the cart. The following day, we left our room...

The BW Hotel was an excellent choice for my family. The hotel is very close to St. Lawrence University Campus, which is a plus for me. The decor has changed in a wonderful way. It was wonderful to see the art on the walls of St. Lawrence University.

Great Hotel, clean and close to Canton and St. Lawrence Colleges. The only downside, the beds are a little hard but the cool thing about the pillows...there are soft, medium and firm on each bed...something for everyone. Pizza shop/coffee and grocery store and gas are across the street. We already rebooked this hotel for parents weekend!

This Best Western is locked in the past. The bed was comfortable, but the room, overall, was quite small and, in the halls, I felt like we had gone back to the '70s. Too bad, as it is conveniently located in a busy college town.
