I stayed at the comfort inn multiple times. The service is always great. Rooms are clean. Its very close to University at Buffalo so that's really great. The maid Kristen was very pleasant and made sure that I had everything me and my wife needed. I will continue to go to this hotel.

I'm a frequent visitor from New York city. I usually come through Buffalo on business occasionally for pleasure.It is very relaxing, the breakfast is great, so is the pool. Very courteous staff, whether it's Tim, Gregg,they're great. They just make you feel at home. Clean, spacious, and accommodating, and well worth the money. Morris

We travelled to the Niagara falls and stayed in this inn for the night, because it is not so far from the place. Room was clean, it is not allowed to smoke in the room, but we are as non-smokers felt the big amount of smoke smell. The beds are really huge and cozy.

This is the second year my husband, children, grandchildren, and I have rented 3 rooms on New Year's Eve. When we get there the kids swim in the pool, which is small, but we had it all to ourselves until just before we were leaving. We then order pizza and wings which we eat in the breakfast area. We head... More

We stayed in two rooms. Both were real clean compared the long ago experiences with Comfort Inns. We especially appreciated the great staff. One thing we enjoyed at the motel was our mid-afternoon lunch. We had been at Niagara Falls from mid-morning through mid-afternoon and came back for lunch and returned to the Falls for night viewing. We purchase our... More

We stayed here for a night after a visit to Niagara fall and as part of the tour package. The rooms were clean and very big.
