Great Bed, Lousy Headboard

Hotel was typical Downtown hotel. Food was very good. Personnel were polite and professional. The overal facility maintenance was fair at best. While the bed and room were above average the headboard fell down while I was in bed...not a very comforting thing. I was not hurt and when I reported it the desk manager was very polite and asked if I wanted another room.

Location was convenient

Convenient- cause next to supermarket, which is right across from the hotel. Staff were friendly, but would have been better if it included breakfast.

OK for short stay

Only there one night. This is an older Hotel but the Hotel and our room were clean which is always our #1 concern. Only stayed one night. Heating system in rooms didn't work to well. Snow storm outside but staff was very attentive, kept floors in lobby clean constantly as people were tracking in snow and ice. Price was right. No problem staying there again.

Good to Go.

Came for a sabres game. Lots of friendly people at the hotel. Took a taxi to the game and it was relatively cheap. Walked DT after the game partied and took a cheap taxi back to the hotel. Perfect for me. Hotel staff was friendly, hotel-room was a bit dirty, though.

Comfy Stay

This hotel is in a convenient place (near the Downtown area in Buffalo), and the room was nice! Though the bed was a bit sturdy, I still had a great sleep!
