As long as you are not expecting luxury accommodations, the Buena Vista will probably work for you. It's your very basic old-school small-town motel. It's plain, comfortable and relatively clean. Don't expect fancy. However the price is less than you might expect to pay at a chain hotel. In Delhi, it's pretty much the only game in town. The staff... More

We were working the Taste of the Catskills Festival down the road. The choice was a local spot or a 35 minute drive up to Oneonta for a name brand chain. Sure the chain hotels were a bit fancier, the rooms would be bigger. Truth be told, after a 10 hour day at the Festival, I wanted a local meal... More

A very pleasant staff. The location is very convenient to Delhi College. Very convenient for local hiking or hunting. Rooms are simple, but what more would you need for simply sleeping? We've stayed here for the past 3 years for a nice 4 day weekend. Just fine for our needs.

Location is handy, right on Rt. 28. Room was clean, a bit small and furnishings are practical if a bit sparse. Motel is older and could probably use some modernization but for a short stay it fits the bill. Owners are quite nice and helpful.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are the new owners of the Buena Vista Inn. We purchased this business in April of 2016. Our number one goal is, and always will be customer satisfaction. We will work hard to provide the best customer service possible. Much of the motel is old and outdated which is why we are currently undergoing an in depth renovation project that we plan to be completed before the summer season ends. Please feel free to write reviews and comments so we can better improve our business. Customer input is always welcome! ... more   less
