We booked this hotel based on it's proximity to the North Campus of buffalo university. We initially booked for three nights but stayed a further 6. The hotel staff were all so helpful and friendly and couldn't do enough for us. We hired a car (again with the help of the staff) and the drive to Niagara was really easy...

You never know with Motel 6. A cheap room doesn't have to be a bad room. This was one of the good ones. On a motorcycle trip with a buddy. They had our reservation. Room gave us a good view of the bikes. They had rags for us to clean the bikes. Hot showers, cold AC, comfy beds and that...

In our 60s and my husband and I had never seen Niagara Falls. Traveling back from Maine this year we decided to stop on a tight Budget . Motel 6 was only 15 or 17 miles away from the Falls. We paid $58.00 for 2 double beds that look just like the photo, Beautiful! A wonderful little Pub on the...

Just stayed for one night. Comparing to Super 8, this hotel was very poor. No free wifi. No breakfast. Only coffee served in the morning. But there is a taco bell in the neighborhood. The towel was torn!! Nothing called as room service. The location is very good. Lot of shops near by. We stayed on visiting Niagara falls.

Very bad experience. First I was given keys to room that was ALREADY OCCUPIED by another guest. Crazy. When I went back to the front desk, the receptionist gave me another key immediately to another room and told me she would bring me the extra key to me in the new room shortly but she never did. Also her excuse...

Myself and a few girlfriends stayed the night while we were shopping in Buffalo. The pictures on the website looked nice and we figured for the price, it wouldn't be bad for one night. Check in time was said to be 2pm. We arrived at the hotel at 3:20pm and checked in. When we arrived at our room, the door...

Had surgery slated for a Thursday morning and needed to be at hospital quite early. Decided to stay at a hotel the night before instead of making a 2 hour drive the morning of the surgery. Usually stay at Red Roof, but after checking the rates decided to stay at Motel 6. Glad we did. Basic room, clean and comfortable....

Coming back from Boston we decided to stay overnight in Amherst and Motel 6 had rooms available. The rooms are bare bones and clean, linens are clean and bed comfortable. I love that they have put laminate on the floors. Great rate for the night and they do offer senior rates. One piece of advise - don't get a room...
