We stayed here for one night in the beginning of our family vacation. It was a great experience! Check in and out was quick and easy, and it was not lost on us that the staff were not only nice and friendly to us, but we noted how pleasant their interactions were with each other. The room was clean and neat, and we enjoyed the fitness room. We noted we were left a note to pick up coffee/cocoa/tea and microwave popcorn at the front desk, and they happily gave us what we wanted for our room. The breakfast was outstanding....lots to choose from, fully stocked, and very neat and tidy. We felt valued and welcomed the minute we arrived. Thank you so much!!!!

This hotel was a pleasant surprise! It’s about 5 miles from my house, and in the midst of Covid stress, I was seeking a little staycation. The little studio was very well appointed with a full kitchenette (almost full-sized fridge, dishwasher, 2 burners, microwave, sink, toaster, coffee pot, and a few Pyrex bowls and pans. My one complaint is that they could have stocked at least a few pieces of flatware and glasses—even if they were plastic. I also don’t understand why they removed coffee from the rooms, and I ran to the store to buy some and creamer before finally seeing a sign the next day explaining they were available downstairs.

Comfy couch with chaise that turns into a bed, a separate work desk, and a 40” tv (with DVD) were all nice additions. In-room temperature controls and black out curtains were appreciated.

The bathroom is modern and has full size bottles of J.R. Watkins shampoo, conditioner, and body wash attached in a holder on the wall. One large closet rounds out the space.

The bed as a little too firm for me, but okay overall, and came with 4 very comfy pillows.

This room was more than worth the price, especially considering the location is across from UB and the plaza it is located within contains options for Chinese, Thai/sushi/pho, pizza, Mighty Taco, a Breakin’ Eggs satellite, bubble tea, a mini grocery, and INSOMNIA COOKIES. I’ll definitely be back!

NoDanaOnlyZuulWNY, Thank you so much for the great review! And thank you for telling us what you liked and didn't like. In our kitchens, (since covid) all of the bowls, plates, cups, silverware and everything you could possibly need is stored and sanitized for you in the dishwasher. I am so sorry that this was not communicated to you at check in and for the inconvenience! Also, removing many of the common room items was a requirement since covid. But we would be happy to provide many items at the front desk upon request. We look forward to seeing you again for your next stay-cation!! Stay well!

Our stay here for almost a week was the most pleasant experience we could have wished for. The hotel and staff exceeded our expectations by far and that is high praise from us as we look for Staybridge Hotels on our travels as we know them to be very pleasant. We were initially impressed with the beauty and cleanliness as we arrived, plus the front desk person, Mena, was so friendly and helpful she made us forget we had been up about 36 hours traveling to Amherst! The check-in was smooth and quick, Mena not only explained the features and amenities of the hotel and our specific room, she was a godsend when we asked for suggestions on where to eat. I can say this: If Mena ever suggests a place to eat, believe her! It was delicious, nearby and we appreciated her suggestion very much. There was also a tray of cookies at the front desk that she offered us to serve ourselves, and the cookies were still warm and delicious. Multiple elevators got us quickly to our floor; and the hallway was clean and quiet. When we got to our room we continued to be impressed: It was immaculate and inviting. The amenities in the kitchen and personal amenities in the bathroom were in place and presented in a very sanitary way. The beds and pillow selections were perfect for both of us as my husband likes a firm pillow and I like mine soft . . . and they had two of each. Everything worked (that doesn't always happen when we travel!). When we were checking out we had the added bonus of being able to meet the General Manager, Theresa, and let her know in person how beautifully run and managed her hotel is. The entire staff exudes excellence and we wish we hadn't had to leave. We will never stay anywhere else when returning to the Buffalo area.

Best hotel in Amherst

When I stay here, I don't want to ever leave. The staff here is so amazingly helpful and friendly. Upon check in she was not only smiling and cheerful but gave me different room options which I really appreciated. I was staying a week so she wanted to be sure I was happy with my room. The breakfast always has a nice selection and clean space. I thought the afternoon snack Monday through Wednesday was genius. The computer room is so handy, I needed it several times. The free laundry really seals the deal for me. It takes the stress out of doing laundry while on vacation. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The shower has great water pressure and gets hot immediately. I would never stay an

My company booked this place for our relocation. It was a bit off the freeway (i90) and the parking was slim, but once inside it was amazing.

Every encounter with the staff was amazing. The room was clean, and appliances were new stainless steel.

The breakfast we got had warm egg sandwiches, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, and juice. It was a good breakfast, it’s nice to have something warm.

Note staybridge suites are not the same everywhere. The stay at Louisville was very disappointing, particularly after how nice Buffalo was...

Checked in last Friday July 9th for a 10 days stay. Front Desk clerk Katie was a pleasure and got us checked in very quickly. Nice room , super clean and everything we needed. Daily breakfast was served "to go " style by friendly staff , breakfast sandwiches, cereals, yogurt, fruit milk ,coffee, donuts etc..bottled water at front desk, nightly cookies too. Free use of laundry is very convenient as well as access to a computer and printer. Our room was cleaned mid stay by Kelly, great job. Every employee we encountered was friendly and helpful. Convinently located near everything. Will definitely stay here again.

Excellent stay. Beds were very comfortable and i say this as someone with significant back problems. The dining area was well laid out with a wide selection of breakfast items. The gentleman who checked us in was quick and to the point. I imposed on Theresa (manager) for a couple items. However she was more than willing to go the extra mile.

Someone spilled a cup of coffee on the elevator, and the housekeeper jumped right in to clean it. Everything seemed very well run and professional.

I am a long time member of a competitor's loyalty program. However i have to say, I've started looking for staybridge facilities in future travel based on this stay.

Misleading Customer Service, lack communication, poor reception at social hour. Demeaning, humiliating and embarrassing customers over entry to social hour. Dirty bowls in the room, frying pan not cleaned, black mould in caulking of shower area. Overbooked with permanent residents in house. Staff unfriendly. Never again.

I checked in this past weekend at around 6:30pm with the help of two ladies at the front desk. I had specifically asked whether my room would be close to the elevators, and the answer they gave was no. When I went upstairs, the room number ended with 8, which was directly across from the elevators. Why lie?

So I asked at around 10pm whether there was another room away from the elevators. The answer was that only one ground level room remained. I had a hard time believing them again.

At no time during the check in did the ladies point me to the elevators nor did they mention the time period for breakfast.

This was one of my worst hotel experiences in a long time.

With apology for the delay in answering, the "light dinner" with both beer and wine is presented in the same area as the full breakfast. No ticket or any delay in your enjoying the ambiance is involved.

The free dinners are fair. They have plenty to eat and the food is fresh. The free beverages are also nice. If you are not a food snob or have diet restrictions you could avoid going out all together. If you want to cook they have a very nice grill outdoors and decent pots and pans. There are two nice grocery stores just a few blocks from the hotel.The full size fridge and freezer allow you to get almost anything you want. If your budget allows, there are some nice places to eat as well. But, you could get away with the very nice breakfast and dinner spreads on most days so your food budget is is barely dented!
