My wife and I went to Buffalo for our Granddaughters christening and this was the closest hotel to where the event was taking place. We stopped at the hotel to change and freshen up before the christening and were pretty disgusted with the condition of the room. There were cobwebs on the lampshade as well as other areas of the...

Basic, clean room, friendly staff, convenient location. Didn't try breakfast but it looked like cereal was available. All we needed was a place to stay that was close to I-90 and to places to eat dinner. This was perfect. Ate dinner at Buffalo Brew Pub.

Clean, comfortable, very affordable, and convenient for those passing thru on I-90. Family-managed and friendly. Motel layout allows for convenient parking in front of your room. Tully's just down the street had good bar food and multiple sports on their TVs.

The hotel is cheaper and it serves the purpose of stay. Otherwise, it is very very basic and a old construction. It is drive-able 10 mins from Buffalo Airport. But not en-route or near to Niagara falls. No breakfast served.

Desk staff was pleasant, gave us room key and wifi password. We parked right outside our door and felt ok about leaving our fully packed car for the night in this all-commercial area. TV was huge and had lots of channels. Wifi was fast enough to stream Netflix on our laptop flawlessly. Billiards across the street and lots of chain...

Traveling with two kids going part way across the country and needed a place for the night that doesn't cost $250. Don't get me wrong, this is a two star hotel. But it is not bad. Our room was clean and it looked like the bathroom had been recently updated. I could tell this because the door to the bathroom...

Dirty, no updates since the 60's, bathroom fan hanging out of the ceiling. Had been a smoking room, most rooms are so the whole place smells like smoke. AC didn't work. The only reason we stayed here was because we were in town to see a concert and most other hotels were sold out. They cranked up the price to...

The rooms are out of date - WAY out of date. The AC didn't work. The bathroom fan was falling out of the ceiling. Just gross. I didn't even want to walk on the carpet. We had to pay the $350/night they were charging because we were there for a concert and everything in town was sold out. And the...
