Recent guest reviews

Hotel was clean, no issues. In general no problem with the hotel. Breakfast could have been better.

Conveniently located right off I-90. Easy access into downtown Buffalo. Mall and plenty of shopping opportunities right up the street. Safe, simple, cheap.

Staff was pleasant, clean and comfortable room.Happy customer

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.

Loved that my car was right outside my door. Not a lot of trouble and jockeying to unload and re-load. Room was clean and air conditioning worked well Not noisy...liked breakfast Also liked that I could smoke in my room but it didn't smell like smoke when I first entered.

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.

The motel people were very courteous and helpfull and made me feel at home. The location was just perfect in and around Bflo. I was very pleased.

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.

WE WENT SHOPPING FOR BLACK FRIDAY.THE BED WAS VERY UNCOMFORTABLE.THE HEATER WAS VERY NOISY. ALL WE HEARD WAS DOORS SLAMMING ALL NIGHT.THE WALLS WERE NOT SOUND PROOF AT ALL.WE WERE HAPPY THAT IT WAS ONLY FOR ONE NIGHT.

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!

Location is good, room is small, bathroom is clean.People sitting in reception desk are not warm enough while responding. I lost my sunglass in reception.

It was ok but could have been better. Rooms were too small for the charge price but then all the hotels were packed because of 4th July. It took me 50 minutes to get there from the falls and the breakfast ran out at 8.30 am (atleast for me). But when you need sleep anything works.

We spent one night at this location, it was okay. I've stayed at other Econ Lodges this one was fair, clean, and also staff was very nice. Location was a little rural, but it was okay. This was my first time using Orbitz, I'll be using you again I'm sure.

carpets were dirty..the water in the sink & bathrooms was muddy..had to use bottled water to brush my teeth..the b'fast offered was very limited and the refills of the juices and coffee were done reluctantly..

the staff helped to set the tone for a relaxing visit. they were knowledgeable about the area attracttions and dining options. they displayed smiles and personality. they gave good information on locations for shopping areas and various sports venues.

The Econo Lodge was comfortable. They said that the downstairs, which were larger units, had been recently rennovated. We first started our stay in a one bedroom which was very tiny. These units were not nice. We were told they were going to be rennovated. It was hard to move around the room. The next morning we were able to change our stay to a much larger room with 2 beds. There was a price difference. I was not happy when I was quoted a price over the phone and when I went down the next morning the clerk said that the price was more. She said do you want the room or not, in a don't care attitude. The cleaning lady was very nice and caring. Overall, we were happy with the hotel. No amenities were offered. The hotel had easy access to the major expressway and close to a shopping mall. It was about 15 minutes to Buffalo and 30 minutes to Niagara Falls. It was a nice place to hang your hat for the night.

The room was clean. The outlets near the sink did not work. The bed was somewhat uncomfortable.

The smell of the smoking room is terrible!! It seems that this hotel is never clean the air of rooms. I change the room for once, the staff's attitude is very bad. And more, they ask me more money to the new room. Moreover, the noice of the heating machine is unacceptable. I and my friends were very hand to fall into sleep. However, the parking is free and you can park your car in front of the door. It is somewhat convenient.
