Not very nice or clean.... Older and dated place. However the linens were clean and fresh. Walk to local Plaza and is right on UB subway Station to downtown area which I recommend everyone go to see. I don't have anything else to say but need to add more text because TripAdvisor keeps asking me to do so....

Ok. So first like to say we are just using this for an overnight for a shopping trip so a clean room was the most important thing. The room was clean. The room and hotel in general are very dated but the bed was actually comfortable. Front desk staff were pleasant to deal with. Understanding that this was a Saturday in the Summer the rate was par for the area but far too much for this quality room. Offered a breakfast but there's a dunkin donut right across the street so we went there. Free wifi that actually worked and good tv. No bed bugs. The write up for this motel says the rooms open to a balcony. The balcony being the shared outside walkway that leads to all the rooms NOW. I have to say....this was the LOUDEST motel I have ever tried to sleep in. You can literally hear every noise every person makes. It's like the walls are made of cardboard. Having said that it is close to all the good shopping so off we go......,

Although the room was overpriced due (I hope) to the long Canada Day weekend, it was more than adequate. Yes, there were 5,000 layers of gross, green paint on the wall. Yes, the furniture was vintage, mid-century yard sale...but...the place was clean, and for the price, there were many amenities. There was a fridge, a microwave, cupboard space if you needed it, and an iron an ironing board, along with the usual motel amenities. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was meager, but it was there and it was free. Coffee was perfectly horrible. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Would stay there again if all I needed was a place to set my head on a pillow.

I booked my hotel using the "unpublished rates" option on expedia- this is where they don't tell you what hotel you're getting-but are guaranteed a certain star rating- and deep discounts off of the published rates. I was promised at least 3 star accommodations- which this ABSOLUTELY is not. Also, I checked the "published" rates to see my discount.......I saved $2.

I had the below issues during my 2 night stay:

2 light bulbs were burnt out
unrepaired holes in the walls
Stained carpet
rusted light fixtures
malfunctioning A/C
no drain plug in the sink
clogged shower drain
rust stains throughout the shower
extremely noisy- when people would flush their toilets or run water in units near me (above or beside) it sounded as if they were right beside me.
hard as a rock bed and pillows (and I really like a firm mattress).

Also- no night staff- which meant when I encountered some of these issues- there was no one to help!

Extremely dissapointed- both with Expedia and the hotel- and suffice to say, I will never use either again.

My wife and I are visiting from the UK.
I would not normally bother going to this extent to review somewhere but this place needs it.

Firstly, the man at reception was not particularly friendly or helpful, this doesn't really bother me but some people it would.
Whilst I was in reception I noticed a sign that stated to the effect of, "Due to the breakfast room being small and getting busy, patrons are asked to spend no longer than ten minutes in here."

At the time I thought how ridiculous, ten minutes to eat breakfast! It's only a basic breakfast granted but to rush guests that have spent their good money out of the room is appalling. Hindsight is a wonderful thing...I soon realised that there can't be many people who would spend ten minutes in there, not even the staff.

Upon opening the door the smell is revolting. It lingers too and it's not a smell you get used to. Then you go in the bathroom and it smells as if something has died in there. I found a number of hairs on the towels, they had also clearly been there a while as they were dusty as well.

The room had a large bed, large TV and a fridge but do not be fooled. It is very dark and dingy in there, not a pleasant feeling.

We were due to stay for two nights but couldn't bare another night. My wife was awoken in the night by a car parked outside playing loud music and people arguing also.

We didn't dare brave the breakfast room the next morning either so I can't fairly review that. Although I can honestly comment that there wasn't anyone in there when I gladly returned our key card the next morning.

I should also mention that this is a very expensive motel for what it is.

Now you may be thinking that this is just one review from one person who spent one night in one room, however, when spending the next couple of days in the area speaking to local people and discussing our stay there it was clear as soon I said University Manor Inn that people knew about it and how horrible it is.

My wife and I are realistic and easy going people who are happy to get what we pay for and not expect too much of a motel. I plead with all like minded folks out there to not go here.

We only stayed as we had driven over three hundred miles to see the falls and arrived at the Inn too late to book another hotel straight away. We also did not complain to the man at the desk as we knew we were going to leave the next night. If you do decide to stay here, bring Gin.

This place looked acceptable from driving up due to the nice new paint job in bright colors. However, our opinions quickly changed after staying there a few nights. The desk clerk was perfectly polite, though it seemed odd, and perhaps should have tipped us off, that we were asked to pay upon checking in.

The rooms themselves would have been fine, as the furnishings were new, however the carpet was clearly not vacuumed, and there was mold on the window in the bathroom. The bed was comfortable enough and it was nice to have a table, chairs, TV, mini fridge, and fast wifi.

The real problem with this place is the other clientele. It seems this hotel is used for welfare housing for drug users, as there are people who are clearly under the influence of something or another floating around the place at all times. My sympathies are with them, however it becomes a problem for me when they begin shouting angry and unintelligible slurs at me and my family while we are just trying to walk out to our car. During the middle of the night, some residents in the room next to us were having a dramatic argument which lasted the entire night, which we could hear every word of due to the thin walls, and their words were not pretty.

Were it not for all this, it would be a perfectly acceptable place, as far as budget motels go, as the location is very convenient. However, owing to the disreputable nature of the other clientele, I will certainly not be back and advise tourists to please spend the extra money and find someplace else to stay.

My family's experience was the same as the other four reviews I've just read. I also used the "three star for two star prices!" offer from Expedia and I'll NEVER do it again! The minute our car of three female travellers pulled into the parking lot, we were shocked. There was a family sitting outside one of the units that they obviously live in. Pretty obvious when you see the "weekly rates" sign outside the hotel. Our bathroom was dirty - miscellaneous hairs, sluggish toilet and tub, no regular source of hot water and the rusted light fixture - along with permanent stains on the sheets. At 9 pm a group of bikers rolled in for the night and kept revving their engines during the evening. My adult daughters had a very hard time sleeping, so we didn't bother staying a second night - it just wasn't worth the "savings" from this misleading offer!

Be warned: This is not a real motel. It's a welfare motel that also rents out vacant rooms as a hotel. What to expect? Dirty rooms. Cleaning consisted of making the bed. Sweep the floors? Clean the mirrors? Wash the floors? Fuhget about it. Enjoy the poverty stricken residents sitting outside your door arguing over the last cigarette etc... The continental breakfast was a disgusting, pitiful, selection jammed into what also serves as a front office. DO NOT BOOK A ROOM HERE. It sucks!!!!!!!

Now called University Manor Inn, this motel is currently going for $100 on Expedia. Good thing I didn't pay that! When I booked a few weeks ago for a stay last weekend, it was going for $80. I paid $77 for a $3 "deep discount" on a 3-star hotel in the Amherst area. I was expecting a 3-star as promised and was shocked when I saw the non-refundable booking (which was still $4 more than if I had simply booked this motel directly without Expedia). I don't mind a 2-star hotel (even that is generous here), but having lived in Buffalo for 8 years, I immediately knew this was in a "rough" part of town. (I woke at 3 AM to a couple arguing during my stay, but at least no shots were fired.) The breakfast is a couple loaves of bread/bagels and a waffle maker in a small 2-table room by the office. Wifi was spotty, but found it humorous that one of the local secure networks was called "Icanseeintoyourroom", which indeed they could, as my shower was directly across (10 feet) from a house's windows, with no curtain! Expedia would do nothing for me to cancel this booking, so I vow never to use their service ever again.

I was in Buffalo for a conference and waited too long to book a hotel, so I got stuck out here. All the reviews are true. A taste of what I found there:
Peeling wallpaper
Broken and torn window screens
Stains everywhere: walls, carpet, ceilings
Leaky bathtub: after a three minute shower the floor was flooded (curtain liner had no effect)
Moldy smell throughout the room
Sticky bathroom floor
Old, worn out, scratchy blankets
And, as one reviewer pointed out, one of the especially weird and unsettling things was the wireless network, ICanSeeIntoYourRoom, which was obviously coming from the house that's less than ten feet away from all the bathroom windows in the motel (none of which have curtains).
The motel's wireless network was very spotty and almost completely useless. The "complimentary continental breakfast" was set up in the same very small room where people check in, with space for one tiny table and two chairs. They had a bunch of bananas, a waffle iron, some prewrapped Little Debbie-type danishes, and coffee that tasted like they reuse the grounds.
I don't know if it's a welfare motel or not, but there were definitely people living there.
To cap it off, it's in a really sketchy neighborhood. I asked around about the area while I was at the conference and they all got very worried about me staying out there.
Also, you'd think for this place, you'd get a bargain--nope. Paid $109 per night.
If I was doing this again and it was this place or nothing, I'd cancel the trip altogether.
