If you are looking for a cheap, clean room within a 30 minute drive of Niagara Falls this is a great choice. The rooms were nice though not spacious. Although they were crowded when we were here, the staff was mostly friendly and the rooms quiet. If you're looking for a hotel near all the attractions this is a great... More

We stayed for one night. The inn has been updated with more modern furnishings -- nice & comfortable. There were some teenage teams staying there, so it was a little louder than I prefer. Breakfast was fine, with do it yourself waffles, omelets and sausage, as well as lots of carbs! The ladies did a great job of keeping the... More

I stayed at this hotel on a Saturday. The hotel was booked solid, like most are in the area on the weekends. The rooms were average and the bed was firm and not very comfortable. There were about 50-75 people outside in the small smoking area and in the parking lots the entire time since this is a non-smoking hotel.... More

Once again this was a very nice hotel to stay in if you are going to The University at Buffalo. The location is perfect. The price needs to be a little cheaper, but the rooms are nice and the staff are nice and helpful.

The quality of service offered to me during my stay last June was outstanding. Everyone from the front desk clerks to the housekeeping staff was friendly and accommodating. The stress of traveling with my dog, and having a family member in the hospital was made manageable by the kindness and helpfulness of Noel and Roslyn. They anticipated things that I... More

We stayed two nights at the inn. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They were very good at recommending restaurants and giving directions. The room was well decorated and clean. The maid repaired the air directional device on the heating unit without being asked. We will stay at the inn again when in Buffalo.

I found the room clean enough and the bed comfortable. I appreciated having a fridge and mini coffee pot. The toilet was making weird noises but seemed to function fine. I recommend staying off the first floor since they had some kind of a flood and had a horrible musty smell. The hotel staff were doing the best they could... More

I stayed for three nights. Great breakfast buffet, and welcoming reception with pizza and drinks on Tuesday night. A little noisy in the late morning/early afternoon because of the remodeling, but overall highly recommended. For UB visitors, it's a great location, with better rates than nearby hotels.
