Loud neighbors late at night! Dirty elevator! No room service! No free breakfast as mentioned when booked

Nice location, clean. Nive bar and bistro. Good size room

The property was under construction but the essential services and amenities were available. The staff was exceptionally nice, especially since they were working on Thanksgiving. There is a restaurant available for hot breakfasts that was very good.

Orbitz confimed that i had a reservation. I called multiple times they reassured me i was good with my reservation... when i got the front desk they had no record of it.. the address and confimation matched.. orbitz had screwed this up. I was forced to cancel orbitz and at the front desk through marriot..now i have to make calls to make sure im not getting double charged.. plus i used points to book.. thanks alot orbits.

Staff was helpful and friendly for out of state guests

We appreciated the location of this facility. It was just off the highway but off the beaten path enough to not feel squished amongst tourists. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The amenities were exactly what we planned for our trip.

Everyone was very friendly, and went out if their way to make you comfortable. The hotel was clean comfortable.

This hotel was a nice clean facility with friendly staff and was close to the main road allowing for easy access to everything. Will return again.

This hotel was very clean. The beds were so comfortable!!

The hotel is just as you would expect from Courtyard by Marriott. It's a Good place to stay for a quick work trip to the Buffalo area.

We were able to check in a couple hours early which is always a bit plus. The second floor room was fantastic! It was quiet, clean, great temperature control, and extremely comfortable with a couch. Pluses for us were the nearby stores in combination with the small refrigerator in the room. Only slight issues were no towels in the pool/whirlpool area and the hallways were extremely cold with air conditioning.

We got in pretty early, but the staff allowed me to check in anyway, not like other hotels trying to nickel-n-dime you for an extra day! There was a problem with the refrigerator in our original room and the staff came and checked it out and moved us to another room and gave us a complimentary item from their onsite cafe. The hotel is less than 20 mins drive to Niagara falls. One of the better hotels we've stayed at. Staff is very nice/friendly and we would recommend this hotel.

We were there to see family and go to a Buffalo Bills game. The staff were very friendly, and gave us tips on places to eat in the area and the best way to get to the stadium. I tried to print our boarding passes from the free computers in the lobby, but the printer didn't work. The woman at the desk pulled up my reservations on the front desk computer and printed the passes on the hotel printer.

We were visiting Niagara Falls. Hotel is pretty far away, have to take expressway to get to it. Gas stations in the area were closed on Saturday morning. Hotel was nice and clean. We stayed in a one bedroom suite. The mattress on the pull out couch was ripped. The pool looked nice, but we did not try it.

Staff was very accommodating and made me feel at home. Would definitely stay here on my next trip! Left turn out of the parking lot is a little tricky but only at peak times. They do need a bigger sign out front or marquis to mark their location better. I drove by it twice.
