We arrived before the usual check-in time (I had called the day before to make sure it was ok since we had to be at an event an hour before check-in) was told it shouldn't be a problem. The staff was very polite & it worked out but the price appeared higher than what I was told online? The key...

Stayed here for a week whilst settling my son into Buffalo Uni. Clean, beds very comfortable. staff very helpful. Had a problem with the TV not receiving all the channels so was given a discount. I would suggest putting a kettle & a small fridge in the room then it would be perfect. It's basic but functional and served our...

Stayed here for 2 nights on the long weekend. Our room was pretty new and very clean. Taking out the carpet is a great idea for a motel. Keeps things much cleaner. The bed was very comfortable and the staff was friendly. Not bad at all for $215 USD taxes included for 2 nights!

The hotel is good and modern. Stayed in a different Motel 6 in the same city and this one was the better one. The check-in was fast and the room are spacious and was exactly what we needed. We wanted to stay in the same hotel as some family members and close to Darien Lake. Only down side of the...

We rented this Motel at the last minute when we decided to head to the area a day early and our booked accommodation for the rest of the weekend was not available. We had no idea what we were getting into but the price was certainly right. We were pleasantly surprised about how clean the room was. It had obviously...

to this place. Our flight was delayed due to the death of a passenger. I was one of the medical volunteers, all strangers, who worked so intensely to save this man while his shocked wife sat right across the aisle. Our plane had to land midflight to take these two people to the hospital. I don't need to say more....

Nice comfy bed, no fridge/microwave , very basic, but good place to stay while traveling. Air conditioning worked great. Ice machine near office so inconvenient when staying in furthest building. Very safe and quiet. Our dog was welcomed!

$2.99 basic wifi, enhanced $4.99 wifi. 24 hrs on ONE device not several. 4 double-outlets that's not too bad. No carpet a big plus for me but something scented here - possibly used for washing floor. I hope I don't have an asthma attack tonight.

Worst experience ever!! this is a very basic motel. no breakfast, no alarm clock, no fridge or microwave no toiletries or blow dryer. Our AC didn't work, water pressure was crap and the shower didn't stay warm. Towels were very hard too. The entire hotel smelled like pot and B.O. and the other guests were very loud with fighting and...

It was a place to sleep is about all I can say. It was clean. Not sure if I would stay again. They did offer a hair dryer if you didn't have one, but you have to share the ONE AND ONLY hair dryer with the whole motel! It is close to different places to eat which make it easy.
