Receptionist doesn't even smile. After she told us where to go, we went to the opposite side to pick up our baggage and she thought we were going wrong way and yelled at us “Stairs!” We were on 2nd floor but no elevator so had to carry our suitcases. Room smelt bad like fish. No table or chairs. Instead, refrigerator... More

First lets start at the front desk. Personality of a serial killer. Went to room. Opened door , no lights at all in room worked. Someone had turned the heat off and unplugged every fixture in the room. Finally found a light and turned on heat. It stayed stuck on high all night. You either froze or Sweat to death.... More

The motel is older, needs some help. The rooms were ok, clean. Staff was friendly and provides fast shuttle service to the airport. It a good value for an overnight stay by the airpost. it neeeds some work.

Last stop on a trip cross country and was glad to leave this location. My first impression was the observation of dirty hall ways going to our room. Next, my wife saw bugs on the bathroom floor and our floor rugs were spotted. Dirty ledges and disgusting materials behind the TV were seen. Furniture was chipped and garbage left in... More

This was our last Choice hotel after a 6 week cross country trip. Honestly we should have walk out and stayed elsewhere. Summary: ditto other negative reviews. Dirty, bugs, old,worn out etc. Not pretty and not worth even free.

I love how I can go from a 5 star property to a 1 star property. People sometimes ask me what possessed you to do that. Well sometimes is nice to reset you base level so that you are more reasonable in your reviews. I won't disclose what paid for my room but it was similar to my valet charges... More

Unfortunately, I did not do any research before booking this hotel. I have been to hotels all over the US and abroad, and this hotel has... More

We stayed in Buffalo for 6 nights as we dropped off and had to pick up my mom from the Buffalo Airport. We came from 2 other hotels during our stay for 6 nights. The arriving flight we were waiting for was not until 10:30 pm. Therefore, instead of walking around from point of our check-out from the other hotel,... More
