Pros: Furniture
Cons: Rebuild
Location: Good location
The hotel is disjointed with different sections separated by a conference center. The furniture in the room was very attractive. I would not go back, nicer hotels in the area.

Great place to stay, we were travelling and it was perfect. Close to the highway. It is very close to the college if someone were visiting there.

Excellent Staff; Comfortable Surroundings

Posted Jul 3, 2016
Pros: Spacious rooms; friendly & helpful staff.
Cons: Pool could be open earlier in season. Mid-June it was quite hot and a swim in the pool would've been nice.
Location: We were there to visit the University of Guelph so did not do any sightseeing. The University is lovely.
This trip was planned in great detail to visit & attend my daughter's university graduation. After a very stressful and long car ride, complete with US/Canada border problems - it was a great relief to check-in at the Best Western Royal Brock in Guelph. The staff were unbelievably warm & comforting, as well as efficient & helpful. The hotel itself was quite nice - with roomy accommodations. Breakfast was good - with a spacious dining area. It was mid-June and we expected the pool to be open - but this was our only complaint. Overall - it was a wonderful experience and I was very appreciative of the extra efforts the staff took to assist me with a stressful but exciting family situation.

Close to everything I needed!

The room was quiet and I enjoyed my stay. I didn't spend a lot of time in the hotel but the bed was comfortable and everything was clean.

Good location, free parking, good breakfast

Posted May 4, 2016
Pros: Location, free parking (Delta, take note), breakfast included
Cons: My sink drain was clogged.
Location: Close to Stone Road mall (but maybe not walking distance for some) and the university.
Located at the corner of Gordon and Stone Road, the Best Western is fairly close to the mall and many restaurants. It's also near the university. The hotel was very quiet (not many guests) and the room was comfortable. The wi-fi worked fine and parking (uncovered) is free. The free breakfast (eggs, sausages etc.) was good, plentiful and uncrowded. The only issue during my stay was an annoying clogged sink drain. The price was much better than I was quoted for the Delta or HI Express. It's maybe not my first choice for a Guelph hotel but it was a good value and I would stay here again.

Nice hotel, very close to University of Guelph

Posted May 3, 2016
Pros: location, quiet
Cons: better coffee
Very clean, very quiet hotel. We stay there often as it is very close to Guelph University. The staff are very pleasant. Terrible coffee! We chose this hotel for its location and the fact that they offer breakfast. The coffee was so bad this visit, that the second morning, we skipped breakfast and went elsewhere. If a hotel offers breakfast they should at least have decent coffee.

My daughter had a dance competition in Guelph. Photos on the hotels.com web site show an indoor pool. Was extremely disappointed to learn when I arrived that the pool was a seasonal outdoor pool. Being April it was closed.

Cons: UPdate the bathrooms, improve the plumbing.
We checked in on Friday, April 8 for an overnight stay. The front desk gentleman was nice enough, very friendly. He gave us directions to our room, which was difficult to find as the layout of this hotel is very odd. When we finally found our room it was very large however the bathroom is incredibly outdated. The cleanliness was ok however the shower took nearly an hour to drain after I had a shower, which is so gross. THe breakfast Saturday morning was good, lots of variety and hot options.
