We live in NC and just made our first trip to a Canton, NY - lovely historic town in the North Country. Our 2 night stay at BW University Inn was great and we would definitely stay here again. The hotel is clean, attractive and well maintained. Staff are kind, helpful and professional. The rooms are quite nice. We had...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

I stayed here while on a business trip. Was a bit noisy in the hallways during the day however it did quiet down. The restaurant on premises was an added bonus. Excellent service and great food. The people at the front desk were extremely polite and friendly!

I was here for two nights. The first night there was a dinner served for the conference I was attending. The food was very good. The hotel room had two double beds. The bed were comfortable but as others have stated they were very high. A child could have difficulty getting on and off the bed. I did not like...

Great visit with our son. The Best Western is not too far from his college or other available entertainment in town. The pool and hot tub were enjoyed by our daughter. We are planning to stay the next time we have a college visit!!

Ok limited hotels in the area so went to BW again and was impressed. Spent time in pool hot tub sauna all very clean and modern. Very comfy beds. Great staff. Not the cheapest and paid more than should have but minimal competition in that area allows higher room rates. Enjoyed stay. Will stay here again as ten minutes to...

If you are travelling to visit one of the schools in Canton, this is the right place. Overall, the rooms are very organized and clean. It has a good size fitness area, a swimming pool and sauna. It also has a restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can also order room service. My criticism are as follows: a)...

Lovely room, great staff, and very pleasant pool room overlooking the golf course. On a prior visit, I had the entire pool room to myself. Very clean rooms. Beds are exceptionally comfortable. Canton does not have many restaurants, so the hotel restaurant is really vital. If I had one complaint it would be to step up the quality. The two...

Really enjoyed my stay, as usual. It is really worth the expense for the quality of the Hotel, Staff and the proximity of the onsite restaurant and lounge/bar. I highly recommend staying here when in the Canton or Potsdam NY area

This has always been a reliable place to stay in Canton, close to the village and golf course. But whoever designed the rooms to have beds sit so high off the floor should be fired! I stand 6'1" and I have to almost jump up to get on the bed. The very thick mattresses don't help the situation. Very poor...
