good basic room

Decent for the price. Although not exactly dirty, the rug & chairs were quite stained. The bathroom was clean, plenty of towels, good value for the price. The room was actually quite large- so great if you have kids or hockey gear! Very close to freeway, 15min to downtown Buffalo.

Worse Than I Expected!

My son and I were on a road trip. We stayed here overnight before heading to Niagara Falls the next day. Unfortunately we arrived after 10pm and there was a cable power outage. No tv or internet. Things happen - we understood. Our room was located on the ground level in the back of the hotel. The parking lot was very dark and we were scared. The hotel appeared run down on the outside. That was the good part! The room was so musty and humid! The carpet and the sheets on the bed were damp. There was a horrible odor - maybe some industrial cleaner? The curtains wouldn't close all way and we did not feel safe. One of the blankets had cigarette burn holes in it. Yuk! The bathroom door couldn't open all of the way because the bathtub was in the way. When we used the toilet paper the entire metal holder unscrewed from the wall and fell apart on the floor! I'm so glad we both have a good sense of humor! We were on the road for 12 nights and this was the worst hotel we stayed at. Definitely would not recommend.

Could be better

WE were there for a family wedding. The air conditioning could of worked a bit better in the rooms. The breakfast could have been a bit better. Not able to print boarding pass from their computer.

Great price, convenient location

Went to Buffalo for a Sabres game. This place was a pleasant surprise; nice big room, very clean, good location for us, near family and a short commute to the game. We slept in and missed breakfast, so cannot comment on that.

clean,well kept,worth the rate

went to hamburg for wedding. needed a room to get some sleep and a shower. when i first arrived i was a little worried about what to expect. the office/desk was about 100 yards from a 2 story motel. but when i checked in the young lady at the desk was pleasant and professional. i was surprised at how updated the wallpaper,carpet and bathroom were. everything was clean and all amenities were there. only 1 problem , after a long day of flying and visiting about 11:30 pm a loud intermittant squeal would come from the a/c area. by 12:24 am the squeal was extremely loud and unbearable. I called the desk ,she heard my noise over the phone and came to the room with keys to another room immediately. This was a bit inconveneint but after my wife laughed uncontrolably while the noise went on for so long it didnt matter. Plus it made for a good story to tell family and friends. It actuslly was a blower in the old heater that made the noise, both rooms we were in actually had new a/c units and i didn,t want to forget to mention the mattress in both rooms appeared to be fairly new, no sags or dips in them, we slept well after this incident. I would definately stay here again. I also would like to mention that I work for a large hotel chain and one of our main concerns is customer satisfaction and I think this hotel does very well at a discount price!
