This hotel positioned us for a quick start on our next leg west, 700 miles to Davenport. Hotel is pretty spartan, and a noisy band at the Warehouse bar on the other side of the parking lot caused us to switch rooms (easily accommodated) to the other side.

Hotel very close to I-90, malls, and BJs (with the cheapest gas we would see for the rest of our trip).

No breakfast, but coffeemaker, fridge and microwave, and AC for white noise.

We stayed here for Garth Brooke’s concert. Price was high but it was very convenient - we went to outback Steak house when we arrived (3 min drive) . Hotel was clean, and good enough to sleep the night. We took an Uber to the stadium without issue 90 minutes before the start of concert. After the concert we walked about a 1.25 miles and then called an Uber and it was only a 10 minute wait and ended up at the hotel easily. We just made sure we walked past the parking lots. So definitely was a great place to stay if going to the stadium!

Only a 10,000 point hotel.. so that's a good deal.. a but far from the falls if that's what your staying for.

Nice enough staff, room was clean.

Kinda scary pulling up but in the end everything worked out just fine

The hotel is a little gruff on the outside, but the room was very welcoming. It was big, clean, and bright. The heater worked without incident and the water in the shower was nice and hot. The beds were comfortable and we got a wonderful nights sleep. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The location was great too, easy walk to anywhere you wanted to shop. Definitely five stars for the price. Would gladly stay here again anytime.

Wonderful place to stay! Comfortable , very clean, safe, convenient highway on/off. Excellent price. Refrigerator and table and chairs in room. Big, spacious room! Nice decor

Wonderful shower!!! Easy parking area and surrounded by restaurants and stores close by yet area is away from busy Buffalo and traffic. Close to Bills stadium and erie county community college as well.
The gas station conveniently next to the motel was much appreciated.
Their front desk staff is exceptional. There was an electrical issue in our first room. They easily moved us a couple doors down- taking care to come check on the issue immediately. Very nice people...excellent customer care.

Blood was on one of the pillow cases. The flooring was all puffy insinuating water damage. The AC unit was very loud and difficult to sleep with. Toilet ran all night and the phone charger didn’t work in the lamp plug. These things were told to staff the following morning and they responded “ya sorry bout that”. The continental breakfast was canceled “due to Covid”, but no discount was offered, nor was this updated on their site.

Stayed over here for one night with family. Room size and bed size too small. I booked for 2 bed and they gave me 1 bed for whole family. Not secure place. People hanging around in night. No appropriate service from front desk. Worst place to stay.

Stayed here for 1 night after a concert at the stadium. Very clean updated room, bed was comfortable, AC kept the room nice and cold it was nice to have a fridge and microwave. Very friendly staff. Also loved all the choices from the coffee machine in the lobby in the morning. Definitely recommend this motel if you're coming to the stadium

We were stranded in Blasdell during 'Snowvember 2014' and ended up at the Econolodge as it was the only choice other than the town shelter. Expectations were not high, but anything was better than sleeping in either the car or the town fire hall. We arrived and from the second we walked into the lobby the staff was friendly, helpful, and giving - steering us to hot coffee and food before we even checked in despite them having been up for two days trying to keep up with the snow and make sure everyone who showed up had a warm bed.

The rooms were clean and everything worked, and were definitely better than a lot of comparably priced motels I've stayed at.

Did I mention the staff? The maintenance guy/cleaning staff/handy man/front desk backup never stopped moving for the 48 hours we were there - he was flipping rooms, snowblowing, shovelling walkways, helping push cars our, and keeping us informed on what was going on the entire time we were there.

A group of people walked a mile or so through 5' of snow from the interstate as they'd been stuck on a bus for 28 hours - instead of asking questions or worrying about profit, the wonderful lady at the front desk just pointed them at the hot coffee (which she more or less spent every waking minute making more of) and gathered up a care package for them to take back to the folks still trapped on the bus.

It's a chain hotel with a family-owned feel - I can't say enough good about the people who imbued a sense of community and togetherness into what could have been a miserable experience. I'll likely stay here again for the sake of nostalgia. Thank you!!!!!!

It was late and we were having a tough time finding a hotel. At $60 a night in Buffalo, I thought we might be chancing it a bit with this reservation. But, we need a place to sleep! Turned out well. It's a typical low budget hotel with dated decor and stairs to climb if you're on the second floor. But the rooms are clean and the bed was comfortable. It's in a relatively safe neighborhood with a good sports bar next door that serves food late. There was coffee and bagels to get us started the next morning.

The beach is about 2 to 3 miles away. A nice state park or about 2 miles further down the road is a town park beach.
