TripAdvisor Ratings

Great stay and great service!
June 12, 2019

From check-in to check out everything was great. Very nice folks at check-in, clean well appointed room with plenty of electrical outlets for charging phones/tablet. Wi-Fi was very strong and a breeze to connect to. I stayed in a Premium room for just a few $$ extra and it was worth it. Comfortable bed and pillows and the snack they provide with Premium room was just perfect and hit the spot after a 6 hour drive to get there. I will definitely make this my go-to place in the Buffalo area!

Decent - great option for the budget-conscious
June 04, 2019

This room is a step-up from basic, which is nice. Smaller bathrooms, but when all you need is a place to sleep and shower, this is perfect. If you are on a budget and need to be in the UB area, this is a good bet. Sign up for the points program and then check the deals - you might find a better rate that way. Also, the premium rooms are not that much more expensive but come with a mini-fridge and microwave, which is nice. Also the beds and linens are upgraded, which never hurts!

Pleasant one night stau.

Elizabeth & Jay-woman-made check in quick & simple. First room was #110 , but a problem with the door lock caused me to be #112 , no problem with this door lock. To unlock , key in & out in one quick motion, pull handle UP quickly & push in. One king comfortable bed, four 3/4 size pillows, two night stands, No lamps. R.R. has one feature no other motel chains has-that is two 20" fluorescence lights wall mounted above a guest's head-great for reading. Small writing desk with lamp-lamp's base has two electrical outlets. I noticed there not many usable outlets. Swivel chair. Two drawer chest. Wall mounted flat screen. No closet, however a wall mounted wall mounted rack with six wooden hangs & shelf. A wall safe that I had the charges removed. A metal folding luggage rack. The A/C/heater unit have simple controls, unit worked fine. My room had no micro/fridge, yet rooms are available with M/F, just need to ask when making a reservation. Plenty of parking, room's door with open to a first floor level parking space. This a two level facility, NO stairs. If traveling with heavy luggage, ask for a lower room. A shower/tub combo. Hot water for shower in 10 seconds. Shampoo only, no conditioner. Room's sink is located outside the shower area & mounted above the counter. Medium size mirror. Hair dryer. Plenty of towels. There is a safety handle on the tub's end. Shower head is adjustable with the water being soft to the face & body. Complete room-bath & sleeping area very clean. Hardwood floor throughout, with a in/door carpet under the bed. This a quiet neighborhood, did hear some Saturday 6:00 morning traffic. Restaurants are no problem. Within walking are Zettis Pizza & Pasta & SAntor's Pizza Pub & Grill. To the west on Maple Road over one mile are the following in their order: Taco Bell, Boston Market, Red Robin Gourmet Burgers-very good-IHOP, Olive Garden, Denny's-enjoyable breakfast, 6:30 not many people yet-Red Lobster & Red Peppers-a Chinese & Vietnam cuisine restaurant. Want to thank the following staff-Elizabeth & Jay during afternoon check in, Calvin evening shift, Crystal -morning check out & Shelia for cleaning staff. Shelia also helped with the door problem. Room size was medium at most-larger rooms maybe available. I suggest asking for a king room as a king will occupy less space than two singles. Calling the motel directly may save a guest some money. Being a senior I took advantage of being a AARP member, proof must shown at check in. If being in Buffalo for one night wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Factors being: staff, price, location, clean room,quiet neighborhood & nearby restaurants. I gave a four star rating because of #110 room's lock problem.

clean and inexpensive
May 13, 2019

Room was well maintained and generally clean. Rate was good and reception at front desk was quick and friendly. A few bad points. First, we turned the heat on, room was 63 degrees when we checked in. Once the temperature came up, it just kept rising. we turned it down to just barely on and it was still too hot to touch, we were able to make it OK by running the A/C at the same time. The front desk apologized and said they would have it looked at. She said she would have moved us but as we were able to cool it with the A/C, we didn't really have a problem. There was also several dark hairs in the tub and wash basin. As the room was very clean this was a mystery. The front desk mentioned that the housekeeper has dark hair, it may have been the result of the cleaning. On the plus side, it was quiet and well located.

Great experience!

Gary and Crystal at the front desk are absolutely wonderful to guests. We ended up staying a bit longer than anticipated... they went above and beyond to make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. Our first room had a bit of an uncomfortable bed, so Crystal even showed me several other rooms until I found one we liked! The housekeepers are incredibly friendly and helpful as well. Rooms are absolutely spotless. And of course pets stay free, and all the staff love to meet, pet and love on your pups! Our Chuhuahua pup took off accidently the first night, and everyone ran out to help us grab her! This is our go-to hotel when we stay in Buffalo, we've always had a wonderful stay. Free coffee and papers in the lobby. I highly recommend upgrading to the Premium rooms... for the nominal upcharge the bedding is very comfy, there's a box of snacks, water and juice in the fridge, and Seattle's Best Coffee. Thanks everyone for a great stay!
