My husband and I planned a trip to visit friends in Amherst and wanted to visit Niagara Falls too. My husband and I searched for an affordable, pet friendly hotel in the area and we had stayed at CWS in Virginia and we knew we had to come back. The staff was friendly, the room was clean, and Rudy loved... More

I will say that the cost made me a little suspect of what I was actually getting. But I must say that my family and I were blown away. The room(queen suite) was clean and spacious enough for the four of us and our two dogs. There is a $25 surcharge per dog for the stay. I reviewed a lot... More

Having come from the Syracuse Candlewood on Baptist Rd., by far the nastiest Candlewood I've had the misfortune to stay at, the Candlewood on Flint here is like night and day. It is clean, well taken care of and respected by both the staff and the travelers. It is Tuesday night and I am outside in the Gazebo enjoying a... More

I wish this hotel brand was available when I traveled during my corporate career. Great concept, better than most extended stay places. Anything you need on business or vacation is available. The rooms are clean, well appointed and convenient for getting your work done and just hanging out. The galley (free coffee) is well stocked, free laundry, and easy to... More

I'm pleased with my choice to stay here. Everyone was so accommodating and very helpful. This hotel offered a nice gym, free laundry facility, complimentary coffee and/or tea.

A very comfortable hotel with great staff! This is like being at home, maybe better. True, they don't make the bed for you every day and you have to drop off your towels if you want fresh ones, but that's fine with me! The bed was comfortable, the room was quiet and clean, the full-sized refrigerator was a nice touch!... More

These suites are literally next door to UB and represent a great value for staying near the University. The suites are spacious and have everything you could want, from a small stove and microwave to gym and lending locker.

We stayed at the Candlewood Suites as a group for a family funeral in the area, but took advantage and had a mini family reunion. This is an extended stay hotel so your beds / room is not serviced daily (we knew this in advance). The kitchenette is very serviceable - full size fridge with freezer, a 2-burner electric cooktop,... More

When a property in Buffalo, NY comes to $148 with tax, and you don't get a comp water or breakfast.........something is wrong.
