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The rooms are out of date - WAY out of date.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

I stayed two nights with this hotel this August. Initially I had a smoking room and I found it stinking. I requested for a non smoking room and the staff was nice enough to comply. I found the non smoking room to be a vast improvement over the last. It wasn't smelly, the bed cover did not have holes. So... More

The name says it all. The staff were friendly and efficient upon check-in. The room smelled a bit funky from someone smoking in it before. The sheets were scratchy. Everything was clean, towels and linens included. There was bar soap and shampoo. Good internet and good sized TV. I think it was over-priced but it was tourist season so this... More

Ok this is not the prettiest hotel. If you want to spend your time lounging by a pool and have luxury finishes around you, this is not the place. My daughter and I wanted to go shopping. We wanted to spend our money on shopping and not on a hotel. We stayed for 2 nights and saved a ton of... More
