It was a perfect place to stay with my 2 sons as we dropped off my oldest at UB. It was clean, staff was courteous and friendly. They had a pool, hot tub, outdoor fire pit and seating and a bar/restaurant. Everything was great!

The hotel was almost empty. We saw one other guest. The parking lot had three cars. It felt haunted. The grounds look like it’s situated in Beirut. There’s nothing nice to look at or even a place to walk a dog. Frankly, it was eerily frightening.

Good Evening. Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. I am sorry to see that you walked away with a case of the heeby jeebies! During your next stay with us might I suggest checking out our courtyard/patio area. It provides a convenient cozy hideaway complete with a beautiful fire pit and relaxing environment. And although we are not nestled along a beautiful coastline like Beirut, we are located less than 5 minutes from Main Street in the Village of Williamsville should you decide to venture out for some more scenery or delicious local food. I might also suggest walking your dog in one of the two open areas of land surrounding the hotel, or taking a stroll through one of the many neighborhoods nearby. Please remember our Front Desk staff is available 24/7 to answer any questions you may have or provide any suggestions that you may need. Thank you again for your insightful feedback, it is always appreciated. We look forward to hosting you again during your next trip to the Buffalo area. Have a wonderful day!

Nice hotel, clean and very friendly staff

Pros: the room was clean, bed was comfortable. Staff was very helpful
Cons: The AC in the room is noisy. The Ac fan noise should be reduced.
Location: close to the airport, city of buffalo and not so far from Nigara falls
Nice hotel, but the which was on the 5th floor, the A/C was noisy. On our next day the changed the room for us to the 2nd floor. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is clean and comfortable.

Don't honor Travelocity deal

When I booked into my room I asked about my breakfast accommodation. I was told there they don't have breakfast accommodations. I explained when I booked on line this was why I chose this hotel. The lady said there is nothing they would do to accommodate me. I was going to cancel my stay but thought to speak to the manager who offered me a courtesy breakfast. The person at the front desk seemed irritated about this courtesy. Had I not been so tired from my road trip I would've canceled my stay. So much for customer service. ..

SPECTACULAR service

We stayed here overnight because we had an early flight the next morning. The customer service here was excellent! The staff was friendly even at 4AM! We were able to leave our car there while on vacation and got a free shuttle to the airport and back when we returned. They also had a computer station set up in the lobby to print out your boarding passes. The hotel room was clean and satisfactory. We would definitely stay here again.
