The hotel is good and modern. Stayed in a different Motel 6 in the same city and this one was the better one. The check-in was fast and the room are spacious and was exactly what we needed. We wanted to stay in the same hotel as some family members and close to Darien Lake. Only down side of the... More

We rented this Motel at the last minute when we decided to head to the area a day early and our booked accommodation for the rest of the weekend was not available. We had no idea what we were getting into but the price was certainly right. We were pleasantly surprised about how clean the room was. It had obviously... More

to this place. Our flight was delayed due to the death of a passenger. I was one of the medical volunteers, all strangers, who worked so intensely to save this man while his shocked wife sat right across the aisle. Our plane had to land midflight to take these two people to the hospital. I don't need to say more.... More

Nice comfy bed, no fridge/microwave , very basic, but good place to stay while traveling. Air conditioning worked great. Ice machine near office so inconvenient when staying in furthest building. Very safe and quiet. Our dog was welcomed!

$2.99 basic wifi, enhanced $4.99 wifi. 24 hrs on ONE device not several. 4 double-outlets that's not too bad. No carpet a big plus for me but something scented here - possibly used for washing floor. I hope I don't have an asthma attack tonight.

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.
