Greeted coming in the door by the staff with smiles, how great after a long drive! Rapid check-in with reservations, nice entrance area, overall nice layout.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Buffalo-Amherst for 1 week while taking a pharmacy review course at the University at Buffalo. I used the shuttle quite a bit since I had to be at the University everyday.

This is a budget motel with a holiday inn slogan slapped on a sign. We arrived after a very long drive hoping for a clean room and a good rest before a family wedding. What we got was anything but. The check inn experience was awful. Rude and impatient. Good customer service should come standard. Esp when paying 180 a...

We only stayed for one night on a driving holiday and our stay at this hotel was lovely. We were recognized as ihg members and given a quiet room away from the lifts. There is plenty of car spaces and wifi is a good pace. Staff is very friendly. A very pleasant stay.

I enjoyed my stay at the hotel. The staff was very friendly and the facility was clean and my room was nice. It was what looked like a very busy weekend with kids running around and they even had a security officer walking the halls making sure the kids weren't disturbing people. I found that very courteous. I would recommend...

I had placed my son's expensive Beats headphones in the hotel room dresser drawer, and of course in the craziness of leaving around hockey games, they were left behind.
