We stayed for 3 nights. 2 Queen beds were great for a family of 4. Breakfast was free and was fine. Nigara falls was 35 min drive. Other Buffalo attractions were even closer. Overall excellent experience keeping in mind the economical price. There is no microwave or refrigerator in the room though.

This hotel is good and we had a nice stay for couple of days. It is decent hotel with all accommodation. Cost wise, it is good compare to other hotels in Buffalo and Niagara. It is just 25 minutes travel to Niagara.

The room had no carpet and it smelled musty. I am traveling with a service dog and was told "we have specific rooms for people with pets and those rooms are booked tonight ". My dog had his service vest on and it took me to point out that he is a service dog and not a pet. The two...

Stayed here for 3 nights mainly to watch a Bills game. The price was considerably higher on Saturday / Sunday night as it was full mainly with people going to the game. Breakfast is basic but is as described. Staff were friendly and polite. Rooms are clean and tidy. Good location for Mckinley mall and all the shops and restaurants...

This hotel was just what I paid for. It was the only reasonably priced hotel in Buffalo Labor Day Weekend. You can tell it was an older hotel that is being renovated or was recently renovated. The room was large and open and the bathroom looked brand new. It was a little humid in the room and the air conditioner...
