Worst experience ever!! this is a very basic motel. no breakfast, no alarm clock, no fridge or microwave no toiletries or blow dryer. Our AC didn't work, water pressure was crap and the shower didn't stay warm. Towels were very hard too. The entire hotel smelled like pot and B.O. and the other guests were very loud with fighting and... More

It was a place to sleep is about all I can say. It was clean. Not sure if I would stay again. They did offer a hair dryer if you didn't have one, but you have to share the ONE AND ONLY hair dryer with the whole motel! It is close to different places to eat which make it easy.

Our last Motel 6 (Willoughby, OH) was a pure joke but this one is actually pretty decent for the price close to Niagara Falls. We had booked Motel 6's on this trip, mainly price and they looked pretty decent online. This one seemed a lot cleaner and pretty comfortable. It definitely looked closer to the picture online.

Me and my girls stayed here for two nights. We wanted some place close to the falls but not a lot of money and this fit the bill! Defiantly no thrills but very nice. No breakfast but I am not a big breakfast person. My only complaint was that there was no blow dyer in the room. Other then that... More

in a desperate situation, with others charging nearly twice as much, this was a satisfactory stop, clean and comfortable with the light on, as tom says... very friendly personnel helped out a lot, even on the busiest of nights, with an extra pillow and then replenishment of morning coffee... good job, thanks.

Pre- Trip: This is a short reminder of what I hope will be present when we get there: a secure and safe room, a clean floor, clean sheets, good lighting, a TV, a phone, a clean, safe bathroom and fresh smelling environment. I'm aware there is no internet or breakfast. I will post again after our trip.

This hotel is a basic place to stay. Very reasonable and clean, the staff was very nice, pleasant and helpful. Beds were comfortable and rooms temperature comfortable as well. Location is right next to University of Buffalo and right on a busy road way so easy to find places to eat and shopping too.

Look it's a motel, the place is basic but clean. The room is a good size (I was in 205) the bedding gets done each day the room comes with a TV, microwave and refrigerator (don't know why but I had two). The access into other access door apart from the main entrance is done via your room card. The... More

Our room had spider webs in the top corners. I killed a spider in the room. Only gave us 3 towels then they took the dirty ones and left me with only 2 towels. AND, somebody opened a box in my room and didn't close it all the way. I don't leave valuables in the room so that wasn't an... More

This is a clean retro furnished type motel. No free stuff at this hotel. You get a bed, bar of soap, towel and some hot water. A grocery store down the road with a coffee shop to get breakfast or hit one of a few restaurants in the area. The University of Buffalo is just down the road if you... More
