“Great Value”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Rooms were very clean and well kept and the staff were excellent. We didn't order any food in the restaurant but we did have a few drinks in the bar which was very nice. On the weekends they have a house band which we were sorry we didn't get to hear. It's a nice place to stay at a decent price.

Thank you for your recent review of our property. I am glad that you found the hotel clean and the staff pleasant. We have been working very hard over the past few years to make the necessary updates to our hotel and continue to do so. We are currently working on our guest bathrooms which should be completed by winter and hope to update the heating and air conditioning in 2015. We look forward to seeing you on a future visit and hearing your thoughts on the changes and progress we are making.

The internet site of this hotel is not correct, maybe the company should change their picture.
The hotel is very old and need to update the front desk. The employee are having a hard time working with the computers and can get a back and shoulders pain. The employees are very nice. The rooms to my surprised were nice and update. Breakfast is good. This is right downtown watertown, so you need to drive everywhere to restaurant, the Salmon Mall ect.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent stay with us. I am glad that you found our rooms to be updated and that our staff took good care of you during your stay. I did want to mention that we do have several local restaurants within walking distance of our hotel. Please ask our staff about these restaurants during your net stay with us. They include the historic Crystal Restaurant, The Paddock Club, and a Japanese restaurant. We are also working on making the necessary changes to our front desk.

The worst hotel I have stayed at in years. Rooms in need of major update. The air conditioner was broken so a portable unit was being utilized. It was not properly vented and duct taped to the screen window. Unfortunately it kept coming off in the heat. . There was no hot water at 8 in the morning which hotel attributed to them being full. With the jerry rigged AC the room was very noisy from street noise. Room was dirty with a bug in the bed. Bathroom door didn't close. All this and a Rude staff made for an unpleasant stay.

Close to downtown, shopping, restaurants, golf. Has everything you need: spacious rooms, flat screen tv, fridge/microwave, free wifi, free breakfast, pool, restaurant on site. Friendly staff. Free DVD rentals, just as front desk. On Sunday through Thursday you can get free snacks at 5pm and cookies when you check in. Snacks include chocolate bars and chips. Front of building does not look like much but don't let that fool you. Parking in back. Lobby is modern. One elevator. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask to be away from first floor ice machine and lobby.

We stayed at this motel for 1 night and totally enjoyed our stay, the room was very clean and tidy , The bed was perfect, both myself and my partner experienced a very restful sleep. The tap water was not very pleasant to drink but that is not the BW fault , it is just the region lol. We definetly will stay there again on our next visit .

Thank you for sharing your recent experience at our hotel. It is so nice to hear how much you enjoyed your stay with us and I am glad that you had a restful night’s sleep. I do apologize for the city water it can taste a bit chlorinated. We do offer bottled water at the desk that you can take advantage of during your next stay with us. We hope to see you again soon.

If you're looking for a very nice hotel, centrally located with friendly staff, nicely appointed rooms, indoor pool, lots of parking and even a farmer's market across the street (on certain days in the summer), you just found it. Handy to Salmon Run Mall and other big name stores and loads of restaurants to choose from. Shop, dine and have an awesome sleep at BW Watertown.
