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.
Highlights
  • Complimentary 24-hour airport shuttle and free parking
  • Keurig coffee maker in every room
  • Well-equipped fitness center, pool and Jacuzzi
Rooms
The 199 guest rooms are smoke free and available with either two double beds or a king bed, all tastefully decorated with traditional furnishings and décor.

Features
The Holiday Inn Buffalo Amherst is a non-smoking hotel with convenient access to all of the top sites in Buffalo and Niagara. Complimentary 24-hour airport transportation is a welcome, cost-savings convenience and valet service (available Monday through Friday; fee applies) is especially helpful with Buffalo winters that frequently dip into the single digits.

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.

Good Hotel

This hotel was okay....all we used it was to sleep in. We came from New York very early because we wanted to see the falls as early as possible. So we went to the hotel around 9am to see if we could check in. 9am is very early to check in but we thought there would be a chance. The front desk staff said No which wasn't a problem it was the looks they gave us when we asked. They both had this expression like they couldn't believe we arrived so early. Even my husband noticed and most of the time he doesn't. They were nice enough to let us leave our bags until check in. So we did and came back around 5pm...when we got our room it was on the 2nd floor and all the way in the back. The hotel doesn't have elevators so be prepared to carry your luggage up stairs. We had a lot of luggage because we are on vacation for 2 weeks...so that was a drag. Overall the stay was ok...Not sure if we would stay again.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

The drive to Niagara isn't that far so that was a plus if you are on a budget and don't want to pay more money to stay closer

Poor Choice

loud very very loud not a good place to get any sleep rude staff -- would not carry bags to room for people with disabilities Restaurant food was smelly and made us sick --also it was flea infested including the room. This place was basically a low end dive truck stop semi trucks were parking in the lot all night with engines running and loading and off loading
