I stayed here last weekend with family. The place was renovated, the large room was spacious, very clean. Parking space was not big enough, had to park a little far at night. When checking out, they did not give any extra time. It is fair enough but I can always use some extra time with the packing and getting kid... More

I arrived at this hotel on August 2, 2014, and the overpowering smell of what may have been very dirty carpet cleaning solution hit me at the door. I had to immediately leave the door open while bringing items in from the car. From there, I left the fan system running all night, instead of the A/C. The smell was... More

A quick visit into Buffalo required just one night away from home. We chose a non-smoking room and were pleasantly surprised that it didn't have any smoky smell. The room was #225, just at the top of the stairs on the second floor, on the restaurant side of the building. We were able to sleep comfortably with no headlights or... More

We were in Buffalo for one night and wanted a basic room, something inexpensive, reasonably clean, with safe parking and easy access. The Econo Lodge South fit our needs well. Staff was friendly. Room was reasonably clean although the carpet felt a little damp. Shower worked well and was equipped with soap, shampoo and towels sufficient for two adults. Be... More

If it weren't for myself reading the fine print, I would not have known about the 100 dollar security deposit, AT AN ECONO LODGE?! Anyway, it doesn't end there. Not only did they not inform me about my security deposit, but they ran my security deposit twice and charged 200 dollars. I recommend spending a little extra money to rather... More

Stayed there based on Tripadvisor comments. Agree that it was a nice place for a short (1 night) shopping trip to Buffalo - really it's Hamburg NY. First impression when we opened the door was a smell of disinfectant, that gave a good feeling that the place was well cleaned and it was. Bed was good for a nice sleep,... More

We stayed here 7/3/2014 through 7/6/2014 to sight see and attend a friend's wedding. Overall the area seemed safe and the room was clean enough which were the two things we needed since we didn't spend much time in the room other than sleeping. Thankfully they allowed us to check in early which we were very grateful for as we... More

I am not going to lie, I was VERY apprehensive about making a reservation here, but due to Choice Rewards dumb point policies these days, I needed two hotels for two nights. I have been burnt BIG TIME by every Econo Lodge I have ever stayed at. I read the reviews here and on the Choice site and decided this... More

The hotel was clean and comfy. We experienced absolutely no problems here and the price was reasonable. The office was in a separate building so there was a bit of a walk to get to breakfast. This might be a hassle during bad weather but you could always drive up there if you have a problem walking or want to... More

On our Road trip to Niagra we stayed at the Econo Lodge.Comfortable cozy rooms and clean environment.Though low budget it had all the required facilities.Lot of amenities with a caring staff is another attraction.Lovely green meadows add beauty to your restaurant times.
