The hotel is cheaper and it serves the purpose of stay. Otherwise, it is very very basic and a old construction. It is drive-able 10 mins from Buffalo Airport. But not en-route or near to Niagara falls. No breakfast served.

Desk staff was pleasant, gave us room key and wifi password. We parked right outside our door and felt ok about leaving our fully packed car for the night in this all-commercial area. TV was huge and had lots of channels. Wifi was fast enough to stream Netflix on our laptop flawlessly. Billiards across the street and lots of chain... More

Traveling with two kids going part way across the country and needed a place for the night that doesn't cost $250. Don't get me wrong, this is a two star hotel. But it is not bad. Our room was clean and it looked like the bathroom had been recently updated. I could tell this because the door to the bathroom... More

Dirty, no updates since the 60's, bathroom fan hanging out of the ceiling. Had been a smoking room, most rooms are so the whole place smells like smoke. AC didn't work. The only reason we stayed here was because we were in town to see a concert and most other hotels were sold out. They cranked up the price to... More

The rooms are out of date - WAY out of date. The AC didn't work. The bathroom fan was falling out of the ceiling. Just gross. I didn't even want to walk on the carpet. We had to pay the $350/night they were charging because we were there for a concert and everything in town was sold out. And the... More

I got the deal which priced equivalent to other good places and reduced 35%, so that, I have thought it's good deal. But I feel that their actual price should the deal value. (Priced high for attraction. :( ]

Surprisingly good place , great location. Not flush but very acceptable. It's a motel not a hotel. But that is great because you can drive your car right up to your door. Room itself very comfortable, nice king bed , flat screen TV, Great air-conditioning, refrigerator and microwave. Nearby plenty of shopping and restaurants.

We stayed at the Budget Inn - Buffalo Airport on the night of July 12, 2014 and were EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED. The facilities were overpriced ($178.80 for a King room), the room was dirty, the refrigerator was frozen, the bathtub drain was filled with hair or something that barely allowed it to drain, the bathroom door would not close completely and...

We were very happy with this 15 room motel, given the price that we paid. The neighbourhood appeared safe and quiet, the gentleman at the check-in was friendly and accommodating and they had HBO! The room was very pleasant and clean (it was a non-smoking room) and looked pretty newish overall. The bathroom was a bit dated but the water... More

I stayed 3 nights at the Inn while away on business. This is a no frills hotel however, it served its purpose for me. The rooms were a little dated and needed some tlc when it came to cleaning. There was dust behind the furniture and appliances. Other than the overall attention to detail in the cleaning it is a... More
