Even if desperate staying overnight in vehicle a better option. Even though our room was non smoking it smelled of smoke. One bed was unmade, bathroom dirty, toilet was not cleaned, garbage not emptied. Only redeeming quality is the sports bar next to it.

We stayed there for one night. When we walked into the room, we were hit by a musty, sweaty odor. It seemed to be coming from the AC unit. We sprayed it with Febreeze and set out some air fresheners to cover it up. The carpets were dirty. I noted a pile of bugs under the headboard (see pictures). I... More

We recently stayed at this hotel for just a shopping trip to Buffalo. The hotel is about 15 minutes drive from the Galleria Mall. We chose it because it was the cheapest we can find last minutes over a weekend in July. It worked out to be around $75 (including taxes) when booked directly with the hotel. We checked in... More

I used my points to stay at this location on my way home to Michigan from the east coast. It was very easy to find right off the highway a small distance. The check in was very smooth and we were in our large two bed room quickly. It was a very clean room but had a little bit of... More

The check in was smooth. Room was spacious and well furnished for 4 of us with a baby. Clean room. It served our purpose of visiting Niagra Falls. Located around 30-45 minutes drive from Niagra Falls. However the reception is located at a distance from the room which might be a problem in case there is rainfall and you want... More

I just needed something cheap and clean. Nothing fancy or anything. It was a quick weekend to visit a friend and checking out the antique malls. If you're looking for a nice getaway destination, I wouldn't really suggest this place. But, for a quick two night stay this was fine. The room seemed clean to me. There's free breakfast, which...

I and my family having been staying at this motel for years. This year was just a terrible experience, every year I take my daughter for a Christmas present to a Bills game. I don't even know where to begin, first of all the mattress stained what looked like feces on the wall, our room was not serviced properly. The... More

I recently stayed here for about a week and i can say great for price. The workers were nothing but nice and chatty. Rooms were very clean, except for some random blood on my pillowcase. There were also ants that bite real hard. My baby had a huge painful bite after i pulled it off him. It wouldnt let go.... More

Typically I make it a point to avoid Econo Lodge motels/hotels. Let's just say that I've had a few bad experiences. When my husband decided at the last minute that he wanted to travel to Niagara Falls for Labor Day I had a really hard time finding a hotel that was available and under $200 in the area we wanted...

The Econo Lodge actually in Blasdel, New York just south of Lackawanna is in a great location. It is on Milestrip Road just off the New York State Thruway and located quite close to the large and sprawling Quaker Malls!! You have a great selection of restaurants in the immediate area which is quite nice. I guess I am used... More
