Our stay was very pleasant. The room was quiet and dark, and the beds were very comfortable. The staff at the front desk was patient with my mom when she was having trouble remembering her PIN.

Had to change the room within 1st hour of arrival due to numerous ants in the room. The second room was ok at best. Found out hair dryer not working at 11pm, only two workable electrical outlets to share and no house keeping room cleaning with 2 night stay, All around, worst hotel/motel experience in the last 30 years of travel. Lastly, rooms cost $170 per night, 2X.

Nice Hotel Close to Buffalo

Pros: Close proximity to where I needed to be.
Cons: A bigger elevator; but, I realize that's not possible.
The hotel met my expectations. It was clean. The staff was friendly and professional. The breakfast was good. A good value for the price.
