We selected the Lockport Inn & Suites for a one-night stay in mid-September 2009 on our way to Niagara Falls. The room was great and very clean -- one of the best of its type we've stayed in. Even with two queen beds, a sofa and desk, there was lots of room to move around, and the closet was spacious and lighted.
That lighted closet was just the first many little extras we found in the room, such as a phone in the bathroom, aerosol air freshener spray, paper towels in the kitchenette area (fridge, microwave, coffee maker) , two artificial floral arrangements, five framed colored prints, and a ceiling fan (in addition to the regular air conditioning/heating system. There was plenty of seating space and lights for reading (often a weakness in motel rooms).
Don't be put off by the "old motel strip" appearance of this property from the street -- it becomes transformed when you drive around back into a large, nicely landscaped parking area surrounded by relatively new-looking buildings. Our room was on the ground floor in Building C.
The location on a busy street (but quiet in our building) is nothing special, except it is convenient for a short 3-minute drive into downtown Lockport. We ate breakfast at the Friendly's on Main Street, and from there we walked across the street to the historic Erie Canal locks. They are well worth a visit, with a pleasant walk through the locks and by a series of interpretive signs. Locks museums are also nearby -- one old small one at the end of the locks, and a much larger more modern museum a few blocks away.
Negatives? I believe there is no breakfast at the Lockport Inn, and room entry is from the outside rather than a more secure hallway entrance arrangement. But given the relatively low price and outstanding room, we found these negatives to be inconsequential.
We were thoroughly pleased with our stay.
