Decided to stay here for a one night getaway for a girls weekend. A lot of the B&B's in the area required a 2 night stay but we were able to book only one night at the Buffalo Motel. Of course when you read the word Motel you think the worst but we enjoyed our stay here. The rooms did...

This is the second time we have stayed here. The staff is friendly, courteous, and very professional. The rooms are clean and the amenties are comparable to the higher end hotels.. The location of this motel makes St. Joseph Mi, Indiana, or Chicago very accessible. When visiting this area, this is your go to place.

Located about 45 minutes from Chicago, minutes from beautiful Lake Michigan and countless parks, is the Buffalo Motel. It is cheap, located right on US 12 and very, Very clean. Our room was small but had everything we needed, including a fridge, microwave and flat-screen TV. There are lots of good restaurants in the area and many opportunities for antiquing.

I have stayed here three times and each time was the same. Clean, quite and inexpensive. Zero issues each time. In-room amenities include fridge, coffee maker, microwave, DirecTV and WIFI. There have been groups of workers staying there, never an issue. I love the old style motel where you can park in front of the door. C-stores about a mile,...

My friend and I decided to take a weekend get away at the last minute on July fourth. I made reservations at Red Roof Inn in Michigan City for two nights. We left RR after the first night. Very DIRTY....stained sheets, stained towels, dirty carpet, and moldly smell. I got my money back for the extra night and we headed...

The Buffalo Motel is a standard roadside motel. The rooms were fairly small, but everything was clean. The bed was comfortable, and though the motel is on Highway 12, it was quiet. Bathroom was small, but well kept. The small box of Whitman chocolates upon check in were an unexpected surprise. This is everything I need in a roadside motel....

There weren’t many reviews about this place nor did they have a website. So, we were skeptical to say the least! We drove in from Chicago, fingers crossed, and despite the look of the outside were happy with it. The lady at the front desk was nice and even let us check out late the next day. It’s a motel...

I was skeptical staying at a motel, but I was surprised at how clean the room was. We had a coffee maker, stainless steel mini fridge and microwave in our room. The rooms are small, but for $55 a night, the price was right. Located only a mile from Casey's and a few miles from the casino. I would stay...

I have stayed here a few times over the last few years and had NEVER had a problem. The owners are nice, the value is great and the room was very clean. I'm a stickler for clean bathrooms and it was very clean. I have a major spider phobia so I was kinda nervous about bugs but I still have...
