Personal service and attention in a convenient Buffalo-area hotel
The Holiday Inn Buffalo Amherst delivers personalized service and attention more traditionally associated with boutique-style hotels. Guest rooms are smoke free and tastefully decorated with quality furnishings and feature satellite TV and radio. An on-site restaurant serves up tasty treats throughout the day. 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 Place

I chose this hotel because of the reviews I read about it. My wife and kids loved it. My wife used to clean rooms so she is a critique. Great stay, great location.

Just south of the hotel are most of your favorite stores and places to eat. More than twice the value of staying in Niagra Falls.

Outstanding location and amenities.

Everything was great. If there would be one suggestion it would be to put the ice machine in the same location as the vending machines. Two separate trips should not be necessary. The staff was wonderful and parking quite convenient. Turning left out of the parking lot during rush hour can be a challenge but certainly the immediate hotel entrance following the I-290 exit is as easy as it can be.

Good Hotel to stay if your are visiting Niagara Falls

This is one of the affordable hotels I found near Niagara falls. The room was comfortable, the receptionist was friendly and allowed us to check in even though we arrived earlier than the check in time. If you are planning to Niagara falls, then this is one of the affordable hotels in the area.

Can't Wait to go back

The Holiday Inn BUFFALO-AMHERST was so nice were on the road for 7 hours and then went to a funeral. Andonce we got to the hotel we through we would just go to sleep. Once I saw the pool all that came to an end. The room we stayed in have a queen size bed that was so comfortable and beautifully made up. The hotel was close to all kinds of stores and a mall. This was one of the best stays I have had. Also the staff was so nice they were about business in there dress and service.I would gladly recommend the hotel at any time.

Nice family hotel

We were looking for a pool. The pool was warm and big. The room was very clean and comfy. We enjoyed the stay. I would not eat at their restaurant for dinner again; our dinners were gross, but breakfast was good.
