We stayed here only one night, but it was one of the nicest Comfort Inn's we have stayed in. The staff was very busy when we arrived, but we got our room, and slept very well, every thing was clean, crisp and well cared for. We prepared to leave and I left my pillow when we left, a Tempur-Pedic so... More

The room was clean, although the taped used to repair the broken window was interesting. The lounge was tiny and dingy - overall uninviting. The hallway a bit spooky with an outside access door that does not lock even at night. Breakfast was average but in a very small area. Parking was good and access to UB was excellent.

The hotel is very dated. The rooms are very tiny, and if you want to use the so called swimming pool, good luck...I've seen bigger bath tubs. In fairness the staff was very nice and attentive. The breakfast was your typical hot buffet...nothing special. The one outstanding attraction was the picnic area at the back which our team took full... More

The room itself was clean and comfortable. The bathroom fan was deafening but the bathroom was ok. The internet is extremely slow and the man at the front desk was quite cynical and a bit rude. Because of his demeanor my stay started right off putting a bad taste in my mouth. Maybe some training in rapport with customers would... More

wow, can't anybody around here offer two queen beds for a room? well, comfort inn did, so this was rather by default, but a choice worth making, as room was worthy (if small) and we were more than amused by the minimal dimensions of the swimming pool... we've seen wading pools larger... well, we weren't here for the swim anyway,...

Thanks for your review. We had many guests with a request of rooms with 2 Queen beds, so we listened and added over 40 rooms with 2 Queen beds when we recently completed our renovation of all of our guest rooms. I'm glad that this was something that you were looking for and we were able to accommodate! Our heated... More

The pros are easy. Newly renovated, family and pet friendly, great friendly staff. If you don't need a microwave in your room and don't mind the price, stay here. It's really, really nice. The biggest CON is that the choicehotels website seems to think you can still book a room with a microwave at this hotel. Weeks later, I just... More

My husband and I stayed at the Comfort Inn University while attending a 4 day conference in Amherst. The personal at this hotel were very nice and courteous....made us feel welcome. The breakfast was decent enough with the usual carbs. The room was small, but manageable for two people. The bed was clean. Only three 'stars' because cob webs remained... More

Thank you for reviewing your stay with us. I apologize for the problem you had with the spider webs in your room and the broken closet door and toilet seat. There is simply no excuse for this and should have been rectified prior to your arrival. I will be addressing this with our team so that we can be sure... More

Overall Note: Close to all the action and the college. This location was recently renovated and in good shape. Better than a few 3 star locations nearby. Location: Located right off the highway and just a short mile to all the retail action you want. Appearance: Very clean and well landscaped. Lots of fresh, colorful plants. New lobby.

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
