Room was clean and quiet, the staff was very helpful and friendly, very convenient to UB with plenty of parking. You are just off most major roads so easy in and out. The price was good and reasonable. A short drive for most of your food needs, to eat some thing a little more upscale you need to drive but... More

Some pet-friendly hotels require people to compromise on comfort, but we'd stay here again even without a dog in tow. This Candlewood Suites has everything we value most highly--helpful staff, comfortable beds and a convenient location near both highway and airport, with Walden Galleria a short drive away. The basic room (two queen beds) is the only option available to... More

I have stayed here a lot over the last 3 years, and it is always dependable. It is never anything other than clean, comfortable, and reasonably priced. I think the fact that there isn't a continental breakfast must keep costs down. They have a pizza night (it might be Monday or Tuesday) where there is free pizza in the lobby.... More

Thank you for staying with us as much as you do! Tuesday night is Pizza night (during the fall, winter and early spring). Once the weather breaks we break out the grill and cook hot dogs, hamburgers for all the guests. Salads, chips, soda and condiments are provided. Every Tuesday from 5pm-6pm. We have upgraded the linens for the beds...thanks... More

If I could give the hotel 10 stars I would! The staff is truly amazing. Every Tuesday evening they provide the guests with free pizza. If you ever have a problem you tell them and its remedied very quickly. The hotel is close to several restaurants and easy access to the highway.

I've stayed at several Candlewood suites in the past, and the Amherst hotel definitely lived up to the high quality I've come to expect at this chain. Rooms are very clean, large, and well appointed, staff is friendly and helpful, and the kitchen amenities are a bonus. Also, I really enjoy the convenience of the "cupboard". There is a good...
