I selected the hotel due to location and being pet friendly. Upon check in the "pet" being a cat was frowned upon, however not explicitly denied in the terms. The $10.00 per day charge with no large up front charge was fair. The room was clean with fresh towels (better than most places), although missing an alarm clock. There was... More

The Hotel is in a good location, but the room was dirty. The bathroom had dirt on all the baseboards and the trim and door was black from dirt. We went to use the fridge and it had sticky goo on it and so did the night stand. The room was small which I don't mind for 1 night but... More

As always the room was ready when I arrived. Clean, neat, and mostly quiet. The up dates are very nice. I like having a small frig. Wish it was a little easier to get in and out of the parking area on to the road.

To be fair, the hotel was booked by a tour company that hadn't informed us of the quality/budget level of the place we were going to be staying at. I was expecting something nicer, though, based on the price I'd paid for the tour. Especially after sitting on a tour coach for 10+ hours on not-direct drive from Boston. My... More

We're used to other hotels in the Choice hotel lineup. This motel did not measure up to Choice standards. The girl at the front desk was helpful and friendly. However, the room we were given had half of a safety lock. When I asked why she said it was being taken care of. It happened because rowdy motel guests broke... More

We stayed here for the night before a game in Buffalo. The rates were fair and the hotel was slightly better than expected. Check-in was uneventful. The room was clean and had nice enough decorations. It was a perfect place to rest our heads. Don't know if other people expect a 5star resort in a small town outside of Buffalo,... More
