We have visited this location many times over a number of years based on a number of factors: Breakfast is very satisfying with eggs and sausage/bacon plus fruits, yoghurt, mini-donuts, waffles and cereals. Nearby mall has a full set of large retailers. Very comprehensive selection of restaurants, including Wegmans where meal options are great value and tasty. Very hospitable manager,... More

The check-in was fast and easy. The room was on the second floor and faced the parking lot over the office. The room was quiet and the bed was comfortable. The shower was great and amenities were spot on. Overall..... a great place to stay.

We stay here frequently due to the hotels location near Amherst and williamsville. The hotel is near the 290, which makes it easy to get where you need to go. The hotel is always clean and the staff helpful. The hotel could use a few upgrades here and there, but nothing major. The free breakfast is always hot and good.... More

“Rooms have been renovated lately but I always check to ensure that the flow of water in the bath-tub is good. Another idea could be to check if your room faces the front (better view) or back...not a big issue.”

“I was on the 4th floor w/2 bus groups occupying other rooms. Maybe if I'd known, I would have asked for another room.”
  • Would prefer a few larger pillows, than many small
  • Nice view, good temp control, wake up call
  • Fridge, great TV picture, safe (you're charged, so dispute it!)
  • Double shower curtain: room in good condition
  • The usual ammenities: clean and neat
