Great price but nothing too special.

Check in was fine, exterior was pretty nice, easy enough to find. Everything about the room we were in was completely up to par with everything that's required to enjoy a single night in a hotel. There was a lacking on the feeling of warmth. It was a good stay and I'd be okay with staying the next time I'm in town, provided that I couldn't get a room in a comparable hotel closer to the attractions of the area. I know it's not meant to be a Falls resort or anything so I'm just basing it on the other close local happenings we were able to find. I'd recommend it as a good option if you're being budget conscious.

Nothing to brag about

This hotel is quite dated, but mostly clean. The free breakfast was very good, however it lacks protein options. the more mature gentlemen on the night staff was very very friendly. Placed around Amherst College and other area colleges, it was a neat location. And an easy drive to Niagara Falls

30 minutes or less to Niagara Falls. Less than half price of the hotels that are in the Falls area.

could use updating

The hotel is close to SUNY Buffalo, so the location could be convenient if you need to be in that area. The hotel itself looks and feels old and dated. The exterior could use some work and the interior felt very old and dated. The drapes, carpets, etc. all looked old and very worn. Basically, the hotel needs to be completely updated. A good illustration is the exercise room (though I was probably the only person who used it while I was there). The exercise bike was a paddle wheel bike that was not only broken but so old it might have been made when I was born (about 40 years ago). The owners really should invest some money in the hotel. Despite it being old, it was clean and the staff were reasonably helpful, though not all that kind. However, the restaurant, The Embers, kind of seemed like a completely different location. It was also a little dated, but seemed like it had been updated more recently. The wait staff were great and the food was really good. Plus, the view was very nice. So, the restaurant is good. (The continental breakfast was pretty light with minimal options.) Overall, don't expect a nice, recently updated, super clean hotel. This place needs some work.

Dining tip: In Hotel

The restaurant is good. They have a light fare menu, but the options on it aren't all that light. If you get the buffalo chips, that really is enough calories for an entire meal; ditto the buffalo chicken salad.

The Ramada

I will say, the entry way is very nice and the front desk is very friendly. The beds were comfortable, which is not always a case at hotels and it had soft water, which what I'm used to. I didn't like that the rooms didn't have a refrigerator, which I was told it would have and the deluxe breakfast wasn't so deluxe. They had waffles, pastries and cereal. Generally, when I got to hotels and it's a deluxe breakfast, it at least has eggs. Also, the walls are very, very, very, very thin, so I could hear the conversations of both of my neighbors and if someone flushed the commode or took a shower my room squealed. Why am I asked if I'm straight or gay on this review? What difference does that make? I'm straight and married, and I don't see a relevance to that question? But for the price the hotel isn't horrible and it's within a few miles of main street.

Wall paper coming off walls, only working ice machine was on first floor. Beds were comfortable, rooms were acceptable Close to Univ of Buffalo. Not much of a free breakfast.

You get what you pay for

The front desk staff was very nice and helpful. I did come in one night late and someone on the staff was sleeping on the couch and got up quickly once they saw my walk in. I was really frustrated because I was on the first floor close to the restaurant. There was a wedding staying at the hotel and they were so loud and it was 1am in the morning. I tried to call the front desk to see if the doors could be closed, but I couldn't reach anyone. Other than that, the room was average and cheep so I would stay there again.
