Positive: Hotel was clean and decorated for Christmas. Beds were comfortable. Tv had lines through it. Inhouse cookies were yummy. Location was great. Negative: Rooms are dated. Pool water had film residue build up during our stay.

Nice clean hotel just a skip and hop from U of Buffalo's north campus. The hotel treats you to a large cookie on arrival. I had a medium sized fridge and a microwave in my King bedroom. Hotel is about 15mins from the airport and airport. Upon arrival at the airport, I called the hotel and they sent the shuttle right away. The shuttle will take you anywhere within a 5mile radius as well. I found out the hard way that the shuttle doesn't begin running until 7am, so if you have an early flight, plan accordingly.
