I usually don't like to write reviews on hotels, but for this Econo Lodge Williamsville, I would need to spend time to write so that you can be warned. I am a solo traveller on a road trip from Michigan to New York. This road trip consist of both business and leisure. I spent 3 nights in Buffalo over the weekend. Being alone and since I am driving, I am not particular of where I am staying, henceforth, I selected the cheapest accommodation around the corner. However, this happened to be my very worst bet. Hotel is old isn't an issue, however, the room is filthy to the max! The carpet in both common area and room is dusty and you can see black stains from shoes around. The bathtub has got hair from the previous guest. The breakfast is pathetic. The staff wear no uniform and are more interested in their cellphone than serving you!
I am a smoker, so I requested for a smoking room. The moment I stepped in, the terrible smell is a huge turn off. I've stayed in smoking rooms all over the world (china, hong kong, Amsterdam, Singapore, USA, etc) but none of them smell this bad. There is totally no ventilation anywhere in the room.
This is a total total disappointment. Serve me right for being cheapo and going for the lowest cost motel. Please be wiser than me.
