We booked this hotel for our trip to the Niagara Falls. This hotel is quite far away from everything so you need to have a car. It took us around 50 mins to get to the falls (another 30 mins to pass the bridge to Canada). The hotel was very clean and everyone was friendly, familiar atmoshpere in and around... More

We stayed here for several days, it was exceptionally clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The lady who cleaned our room actually came up to us and asked us if the room was ok and if we needed anything else. The breakfast area was wonderful, the tables were cleaned after each person left the area not at the... More

We stayed at the Lord Amherst from Feb 19, 2014 - March 14, 2014. Extra 2 days due to a blizzard. Bruce and his staff are wonderful. Everyone is polite and very helpful. Front desk, house keeping, maintenance go far and beyond to accomodate. Thanks for everything guys. Jack and Dovie Sorensen Crosby, Texas

I am currently writing this review on the hotel's computer which is free for use. This is one of the very few things notable in this hotel. Actually, the stay was just average. Halls were cold, the room was basic, breakfast served was basic, the bed was a little uncomfortable at first, bathroom design is dated. But for the price... More

This location is execellent, the staff was extremely friendly, the room was nice, and the breakfast buffet was very good! Waffles, oranges, cereal. I'd much rather stay here than Comfort Inn or the like, this place had a cozy feel, and I felt like on was on vacation. And at less than 70 a night, I will come back.

We stayed 2 nights over a weekend for a family event. We got a room w/ 2 double beds on the ground floor. Some of the even numbered rooms seems to have a door directly to the parking lot in the inner courtyard. We paid just under $71/night including taxes so we weren't expecting a room like the Hampton Inn... More

I stayed in late January even though the lobby breakfast area is beautiful. The rest of the hotel is disgusting. It smelled old and dirty they say NO smoking and wherever I walked it smelled like smoke,the tv was so fuzzy it's pointless to even have them, the door to the courtyard didnt close well so it had a huge...

But who cares, the price was right, the staff very nice and helpful, It was close to my MIL's assisted living facility and to other family in downtown Bflo. We spent 5 days over Christmas here and it did not break the bank! It was nice and warm, even when it was 3 degrees out. The shower had good water... More

Second stay in 6 months. This is a great family Inn. Very good breakfast. Nice fireplace to warm up with when entering lobby. Adding a tower (construction near by) but no issues with noise. Quiet area not too far from great shopping.

We stayed here during the Holidays while visiting family. Comfy clean hotel. If you are looking for a modern place, this is not it, but then stay at a big chain hotel. This reminded me of many of the small private hotels we stayed in Europe. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. The doors are real keys. TV's old.... More
