This was our 3rd stay at a Residence Inn, and we were disappointed. The studio suite was much smaller than the previous ones we've stayed in. The kitchen table doubled as a desk (not very convenient!), and the pull-out couch had to be moved to open it, making the entire space a nightmare, because the couch was very close to...

Scott P, General Manager at Residence Inn Buffalo Amherst, responded to this review

Thank you for your feedback and insight. It is never easy to read a review of a guest having disappointment in their stay and in their room. I have already discussed your comments with Rooms Managers and have been assured that they are inspecting under the sofas to be sure we get rid of any cleaning issues and that the...

This is one of the older style Residence Inns - separate buildings with 4 or so suites in each. If you've been to one before you know exactly what to expect. If you're on the first floor there is a tad of noise from the room above - perhaps the reason they have you sign a "quiet policy" when you...

Scott P, General Manager at Residence Inn Buffalo Amherst, responded to this review

Yes, we are one of the original style Residence Inn’s. All of our Suites have exterior entrances. The original idea came from an apartment complex and then, over the years, designs were changed to the “newer” style tower buildings, such as the Cheektowaga Residence Inn. It is true that our hotel does shine in the summer time, with several acres...

Nice place, clean, staff is helpful. BUT, I prepaid in full for my week's long stay, checked with desk upon check out that all is good, and I did PREPAY, however three days after check out my account is charged $1067.46!! Waiting for a call back.

Scott P, General Manager at Residence Inn Buffalo Amherst, responded to this review

I am familiar with this incident. I understand the severity of the situation when a guest’s payment is not correct and it is not acceptable. My sincere apologies. My understanding is that incorrect charge has been reversed. We train our front desk agents extensively on the need for accuracy, we will continue to train to avoid this type of mistake....

My boyfriend and I went to Niagara Falls (late July 2014) and stayed in one of the townhouse-like suites (I think they called it a penthouse on the phone). It was so very nice and really clean and comfortable - I could move in!! We will be returning to this hotel for sure!!

Yes, the Bi-Level Loft Suite is referred to as the Penthouse Suite. When traveling with a family or you just need some space to “Spread Your Wings and Relax”, these large Suites will definitely fulfill your needs. Thank you for your kind words. It truly is an effort, everyday, for our staff to care for the Guest, as well as,...

I had stayed here a couple of times - once in 2001 and then again in 2010. The first time I stayed here in 2001, I recollect it was still a pretty nice property. But it seems to have deteriorated over time. I liked the general layout - the entire area consists of several two-storied building blocks, each block having...

We are always looking for feedback on the perception of our guests and I want to thank you for your sincere comments. Since 2001 the interior of the guest suites has been completed renovated twice, once in 2004 and then again in 2012, where the carpets, appliances and furniture have been replaced. In 2012, the exterior of the buildings were...

I would give 3.5 stars for the room, but the staff is very friendly and the pool is a nice feature in the summer so I'm bumping up to 4. The property has a bunch of small buildings with 4 or so rooms each and no elevator for 2nd floor rooms (we had our 2-year-old and quite a bit of...

Thank you for your kind and good feedback regarding your stay. I wanted to address some of the critique that you have pointed out. Regarding the carpet, in your suite, we have a consistent carpet care program where an outside vendor completes a steam cleaning of the entire suite on a regular basis. We truly understand the need to have...

On a family trip to Niagara, we stayed at the Queen studio suite at Residence Inn. It was a wonderful stay. The room was clean and staff was very friendly.

We were visiting Niagara and needed a kitchen for light cooking for one of the senior members. We decided to stay in this hotel given they provide free shuttle to/from the airport until 9 PM. On way in, our flight got delayed and we couldn't take free shuttle but took a taxi to the hotel around midnight. The person at...
