stayed here with our five kids. Very accommodating. Pool is small but nice and warm. Shower pressure was awesome and there were plenty of towels in the room. The staff was great, very friendly and professional.

Stay here for one night. On-duty receptionist Chery is really nice and helpful. She not only gives me accommodation advises but also help me on transportation stuff. Even offer me a exceptional breakfast for my early flight schedule. The price is decent and room is nice and comfortable. All in all, a cool place to stay.

It's very decent hotel with all basic amenities. It is not very near to falls and takes 20 min drive. There are good restaurants around the hotel with multiple food options. Hotel serves the free buffet break fast also. Room has two king size beds so 4 people can manage.

We visited graduation time for SUNY Buffalo, which explains the 230 $ rate for 1 night,there really were no other available choices. The place was nice well located & clean. They included a very bad breakfast in a room too crowded to eat it in for the price. I would only stay here if there were no other choice again....

I chaperoned 4 high school students at a University event for 3 days/2nights and found the Comfort Inn to be pleasant, clean, and reasonably priced. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was great - especially when there was such variety that all of us could find things we liked to eat. It was also a convenient location -...

This hotel was very easy to find, the front desk staff more than accommodating. The breakfast in the morning was great. Rooms are clean with comfortable beds. I was traveling with my senior citizen parents, and the hotel took the effort to make sure that our request for first floor rooms next to each other was met. Easy to find...

“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.”
