The convenience to University @ Buffalo North Campus was excellent! The room was clean and spacious for just one person. Having a fridge always makes a difference. The bathroom was simple but clean. The only thing to improve on, are the bed pillows. All 4 pillows were extremely firm. A better pairing would be 2 soft & 2 firm. Better...

We went to a conference at the Marriott right across the street. The price was one-third of the Marriott. We did not get the amenities of a Marriott but we got a good decent room and saved lots of money. It took us about 20-25 minutes to Niagara Falls. It was about 20 minutes to the airport. The front desk...

Just as good as our original visit - bright, clean, comfortable room with free wifi and comfortable beds - not too hard & not too soft. Very convenient to all highway connections, shoppers paradise and loads of good restaurants within a couple of miles. Staff is friendly and eager to please.

this motel offers everything you need for a small rest. You have free wifi, a nice armchair, comfortable mattress and a clean shower. The prices are incredible low and are definitely appropriated for this kind of room. As I said, it is a motel not a fancy hotel. The heater works perfectly and the additional air con was working as...

We had a standard King room which was fine. What was not fine was finding a dead pizza box with food inside shoved in a drawer under the TV! The hotel clerk comped us on the rate because of it so that made up for it to some degree. The carpet looked like it needed a good vacuum too. The...
