No free breakfast or coffee. Hampton inn includes this in price of room. Avoid the bistro. Prices way to high. Price of room also higher then hampton with no better room quality. Did i mention. No free coffee or breakfast!!!!! Cleanliness is good. And excellent check in.

The Courtyard Marriott brand does not include breakfast in all room rates. We do have room with breakfast packages that are available for purchase. The Bistro provides a quality breakfast that is priced evenly with any breakfast restaurant in the area. Cleanliness is a huge factor for us and I will pass along your comment to the staff for a...

We got an amazing rate at this hotel, a good 40% cheaper than comparable rentals closer to the Niagara Falls area. But it was close to the shopping we wanted to do, had a nice ( small ) pool but a fantastic hot tub. The rooms were spotless, contemporary ( most hotels at this price point are very 1990's )...

Stayed here for a back to school shopping weekend. Location: OK. Shuttling between Amherst and Walden makes it central, but the hotel is actually quite secluded, so nothing is walking distance even if you wanted to, and if you left people at the hotel to explore, they would be stuck there. Pricey for it's lack of location. Amenities: OK. Cute... More

I am very impressed with this Courtyard Hotel! It is a bit away from other things, but that is fine with me. I used the Mobile App to check in enroute to the hotel and my room was ready when I arrived! They read and honored my room requests and everything was in perfect condition in the room! Their lobby...

This Courtyard is far from most of the things one would go to Buffalo for. The immediate vicinity does not have much more than a bunch of car dealerships and some strip malls. Other than that, it was clean, the beds were comfortable enough and the showers were fine so it was good for a one-night stay over.

The hotel is conveniently located off interstate 290, which is a main highway splitting Buffalo. All attractions are no more than 15-20 minutes from the hotel and several popular restaurants are located within 2 miles. I am happy you were able to enjoy your stay as we strive to provide the highest level of service and comfort to all our... More

Simple fast check-in. Rooms average size, very clean and comfortable beds. The indoor pool is extremely small, but the hot tub was normal sized and very hot and relaxing. The hotel has a nice outdoor area adjacent to the pool and has chairs surrounding a gas fireplace it was so nice relaxing in that area after a swim. The hotel... More

We had a very nice stay at this hotel. Rooms were clean, had a different smell (not bad). The pool was a little cool for our younger kids, but they had a good time. Staff was friendly. We would stay here again if we were in the area.

This hotel is commensurate with expectations for a Marriott Courtyard. Location offers easy access to a major Buffalo highway and shopping. Numerous restaurants nearby. Room is spacious and comfortable. Free parking. Negative aspects - breakfast not included with room, breakfast items are on the expensive side, no water provided at check-in. We are not loyal to Courtyard so will probably... More
