I was taking my son and a couple of his friends to visit the university. As we were four and I was footing the bill, I was hoping to get two clean rooms, free parking and breakfast. The price seemed reasonable and the hotel wasn't too far. Well, the first stay will be my last. The rooms looked clean but... More

Stayed here on a recent outing to Niagara Falls. Located ~2mi from route 90 Buffalo exit, this place is ~30 min drive to Niagara falls. The rooms were kept well when we checked in with all the refills. The room did not smell great , but it was alright. But when we came back for the next night from falls,... More

I'm usually a pretty easy grader, but this ended up being the third worse hotel I have ever stayed at. The place has been recently renovated and everything looks clean when you walk in. I thought it was weird when we first opened the door that there was no carpet, but instead a kind of kind of fake looking wood... More

I am very sorry. The floors laminate and unfortunately as soon as someone walks on them dirt off shoes stay on the floor. We have put carpeting in front of the door. I have called the exterminator about the ants. More

Manager made nominal credit ($20) to account for skipped housekeeping service. Continental breakfast was acceptable but hours limited from 6am to 9am. Con: Housekeeping skipped making the bed.

I had appointments early in the morning at Buffalo General and Roswell, so we decided to drive up the night before and spend the night. This Econo Lodge is 15-20 minutes from the hospitals. I chose it because the reviews said it was a budget motel, but clean. Those reviews were right. Cleanliness & Smell: The room smelled clean -... More

Clean room, helpful staff and a good price. Close to the stadium, so perfect if attending an event there. About $30 taxi ride to the city. Our room was not cleaned one night and had to ask the front desk for towels, but otherwise was a good hotel for the money.

Our stay at The Econo Lodge was above expectations. There is plenty of parking including RV and truck. The room was clean and spacious, bed comfortable, AC worked well. The free continental breakfast was pretty decent, bagels, muffins etc but there was a toaster and lots of jam, butter, juice, and coffee. The location is excellent, right by I90 and... More

Great prices, free breakfast, but not great for more than a 5 night stay. Super nice people and no trouble except for the room design but other than that it's great. Not the best hotel in buffalo but it's up there.
