A complementary airport shuttle operates 24 hours a day. A fitness center, indoor swimming pool and Jacuzzi round out the Holiday Inn Buffalo Amherst hotel’s offerings.

Features
The Holiday Inn Buffalo Amherst is a non-smoking hotel with convenient access to all of the top sites in Buffalo and Niagara.

Great Location Near Airport

Great if you want to be near the airport. I did not like the smell of the room and it needs to be updated. Old finishes. Other than that the place is good for the location and amenities.

Convenient

The hotel was conveniently located right off of I 290. Lots of restaurants and shopping in the area. It is located on a very busy street (we had to take a left to go right.) We were there to look at SUNY Buffalo and had no trouble getting to the campus. The staff was very friendly. The room and linens had a very strong smell of cleaning solution. It was nice to have free wifi, cable and a refrigerator.

Overnight stay

The hotel was Conviently located and the staff was friendly. The rooms were nice yet the bathroom was not super clean and the bed a bit hard. This did the job for a one night stay.

Not worth.

We stayed at the same hotel couple of years back and it was great experience that's why we selected the same hotel but this time, it was night mare. On very first day at hotel, we didn't want to go anywhere because of early morning flight and so we had plan to stay at hotel and rest but after 2 hrs of check-in, the entire passage was filled with smell of bleach and eyes were burning. We had to leave the room against our wish and as a result, my 6 yr old was not fresh even on second day. Will never go to this hotel again in my life.
