We (myself along with family members and friends) always stay at this hotel when we travel to Buffalo. Although we live in Toronto, Canada, we shop in the Buffalo area at least four or five times a year.
The location of this hotel is fantastic! It is right off the 290W highway, within 10 minutes of Walden Galleria mall and the Fashion Outlets mall. It's relatively close to the US/Canada Border as well. There is also the Boulevard Mall close by, as well as other restaurants and stores along Niagara Falls Blvd.
The best thing about this place, other than the location, has to be the price. We hardly spend time in the room so really, all we need is a bed and a working bathroom! This hotel can provide that. There are no frills, but there is a flat screen TV in each room with cable and free wi-fi internet. There is also a small continental breakfast offered in the mornings, consisting of toast, muffins, cereal, juice, and coffee (sometimes they bring out the waffle maker and you can have do-it-yourself fresh waffles!).
Overall, this place is decent for the price, good value, and awesome location.
However, please beware of the cleanliness factor. After several years of staying here, we did see a cockroach on our second last visit. We notified the front desk and they assured us they would fix the problem. The next time we went, we did not see anything, so it appears that it was fixed I guess. We also bring our own pillow cases, etc.
If you just need a bed to sleep in, on a budget, and you're not overly picky about decor and amenities, then this is the right place for you! :)
