This hotel was conveniently located for a college visit, but was disappointed with the condition of the room. I have stayed at other Comfort Inn properties and have had good experiences. However, this property is in desperate need of an update; the decor is old, the air conditioning worked, but was either too cold or too hot, the bathroom only... More

Had emergency business trip to Buffalo today. Office booked the room for me. Check in was great. Room clean and comfy. Bed was new. Room nicely appointed. A/C worked well and very quiet (outside temp were 90's today). TV worked great. Nice place. Even like that breakfast opens at 6am!

The room smelled of smoke, room appeared and felt dirty, I tried to open the window to air it out but the screen was torn and broken - so big black spiders entered the room and made the situation worse. Phone looked like... More

I booked my stay here very last minute and had primarily selected it on the reasonable price and location. My stay was just OK - nothing special, but nothing horrible. There were some pros and cons for the property. First the good - the bed was very comfortable, there were nice amenities in bathroom (fluffy towels and decent products), and... More
