Either this hotel has been renovated or the folks who panned this place stayed in a different hotel (!)
The room IS small, but well laid out. We had a suite with a king size bed, plus a foldout couch that easily slept two girls ages 10 and 14. There was also a desk, a console with a nice sized hotel fridge, a microwave, a sink and a cabinet with dishes. Everything was clean and fresh. I'm pretty sure they HAVE been renovated--they have lots of new linens (with info on where to buy them) and I think the beds were new too.
The breakfast featured eggs (scrambled), bacon one day and sausage patties another, plus biscuits, muffins and bagels, waffles/french toast, cereals and yogurts. Plenty to choose from and the breakfast area is large and comfortable.
No Internet problem--you just have to get a password from the desk. Access was fine and fast. There are also computers available near the breakfast area if you don't have a laptop.
You are right off the highway--easy access to Buffalo, Niagara, etc. The blocks near the hotel are fine--nice neat houses and some shopping nearby. A little further away, the neighborhood is not as nice, but it's on the other side of the highway.
This is probably intended mainly for business travelers. But for 2 families, with 4 girls ranging from 5 to 14, it was a great place to stay on vacation!
P.S. We got pizza from a nearby place called "Guzzo's" which made the nearest thing to a NYC neighborhood pizza that I've had in ages, and nice Buffalo wings!
