The desk personnel were very pleasant and areas clean. Some of the bathroom fixtures needed updating. Convenient location to local interstate and University of Buffalo. A relaxing...

The check-in was fast and easy. The room was on the second floor and faced the parking lot over the office. The room was quiet and the bed was comfortable. The shower was great and amenities were spot on. Overall..... a great place to stay.

“Rooms have been renovated lately but I always check to ensure that the flow of water in the bath-tub is good. Another idea could be to check if your room faces the front (better view) or back...not a big issue.”
 of 5 bubbles sobim, 24 Nov 2016 | Read review
“I was on the 4th floor w/2 bus groups occupying other rooms. Maybe if I'd known, I would have asked for another room.”
  • Would prefer a few larger pillows, than many small
  • Nice view, good temp control, wake up call
  • Fridge, great TV picture, safe (you're charged, so dispute it!)
  • Double shower curtain: room in good condition
  • The usual ammenities: clean and neat
