We were heading cross country with our pets, and needed a place for a few hours rest. The hotel was perfect, clean, easy off and on to I 90. The beds and pillows were comfortable. The cooling unit however, made some really funky sighing and groaning noises. Overall, pretty OK!

Stayed here one night when coming back from Boston. Clean comfortable room for a reasonable price. The hotel is old and dated but this is an economy hotel. Good for one night .Pleasant staff ample parking.

We stayed here for one night, and were pleasantly surprised. The room was clean and roomy. No complaints about the bed. Like a few other reviews, the room had a cleaning smell when we first arrived, but it disappeared when we turned the AC up some and were out of the room for a while. Only one minor problem was...

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
