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.

Great value. The rooms were very big and comfortable and were kept clean. The hotel is located close to the city and a lot of amenities. I would definately return again if I found myself in the area and would recommend it to others. The only hic was that the internet service was spotty but we enjoyed the experience. Happy... More

It was late and we were having a tough time finding a hotel. At $60 a night in Buffalo, I thought we might be chancing it a bit with this reservation. But, we need a place to sleep! Turned out well. It's a typical low budget hotel with dated decor and stairs to climb if you're on the second floor.... More

Lovely open grassy area,felt like country and yet so close to everything. 17 mins to downtown Buffalo by car. Saved over 100$... More
