... and to take photos of Dansville and Alden, New York. Steffie drove the last leg as we crossed west on Highway 20 to the ring route around Buffalo Finally at 6pm we arrived at our tiny little motel in Niagara Falls exhausted. I couldn't do anything for the rest of the night, but Steffie continued organising things in the car. I had a shower at 9pm and crashed into bed to watch some more TV.
Next is all the fun of selling a car from another state in Canada and crossing the border!
... that you can't get hashed browns around here. All the menus offer home fries, which we don't like very well. So this morning we both passed on the potatoes. A real rare event!
A word about Watkins Glen. The downtown is still the center of everything. On the main street through the town, we saw two car dealerships, insurance offices, medical supply stores, restaurants, cafes, etc. It was really nice to see a downtown that wasn't all ...
... Niagara Falls is on the American side and the Canadian side, and a bridge separates them. My hotel was on the Canadian side as you get the full view of both falls, the Horseshoe Falls and the Bridal Veil falls. It is much prettier a view of the falls from Canada so I made sure I got the best view for my short time there.
It was about 30 minutes to the border which is just the bridge that has toll booths sitting on it and immigration officers that check you ...
... miserable, wet and cold, yet strangely comforting. I think it really reminded us of a drizzly Melbourne day. We felt at home. It took an hour and a half to get down to Niagra Falls and the view was jaw dropping. We couldn't believe the volume of water, the sheer power of the water that flowed over the falls. You hear about lunatics over the years going over the falls in a barrel, but it isn't until you actually ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Econo Lodge Williamsville
How I wished I had read all these reviews before I stayed at this Ramada. We had traveled to Lake Placid, New York to visit relatives. From there we had booked our stay at the Ramada Limited. Upon entering, the entire building had an odor. I'm not sure what died there, but it was stifling. We had pre-paid and after traveling all day with three kids in a car we were ready to relax. The room was dirty, smelly, old and quite possibly the nastiest room I have ever or will ever encounter. There were cigarette burns on the furniture, crumbs on the chair and floor, an old stain in the sink that looked like blood, holes in the wall that could very well have been peep holes. You could not see out of the windows as there was a film of some sort on them. We immediately decided to go visit Niagara Falls that night so we could leave first thing in the morning. We returned to the room around midnight and slept in our clothes which we immediately put into a plastic bag in the morning. We too checked out the pool only to discover it was dirty and green. Nothing about this hotel was clean. The hallway carpets were all stained. The walls were stained. Nothing was vacuumed. In the room pipes were scantily covered in a foam like material exposing most of the metal. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to my worst enemy. I think a prison might possibly be more inviting.
I was visiting my relatives in Buffalo, N.Y. and was attracted by the airport shuttle this hotel offered. I paid for myself, my cousin and my mother to stay here. UNSAFE: the bathtubs were so slippery my cousin almost fell. The curtains were covered with paint; lightbulbs had been removed from the fixtures; plugs had been removed from the outlets behind the bed. There was mold around the bathtub and an inch of mold under the soda machine.The cleaning staff did not close the door completely so it was unlocked and anyone could have gone into the room while we were out. The Ramada owner offered one free night (with restrictions) to compensate but I would never consider staying there again. This hotel is UNSAFE and DIRTY. I hope this review helps others who might be looking for accomodations near the Buffalo International Airport.
Lots of room for improvement...
The closeness to the airport is convenient, and the shuttle service was very good. The hotel itself, however, was dirty and the bed was extremely uncomfortable. The hotel was loud, too, with weird sounds coming from both the heater and the exposed pipes in the room, and from some of the other guests, who were yelling all night. Not recommended.
My husband and I stayed at the Ramada Limited this past weekend as part of a bus trip to a football game in Buffalo. I did check it out on TripAdvisor prior to travelling, but we had no choice as it was included in the price of the trip. I figured for one night, how bad could it be?
This hotel is a huge waste of money. In May 2005, my family stayed at this hotel because I had researched it on the internet. Unfortunately I had not visited TripAdvisor's site before I booked this hotel.
Worst bed on earth
This hotel has very good rates, and you will find out why. Actually it is pretty simple, and it was clean when we were there. But the bed was awful. It had to of been the cheapest mattress I have ever slept on. It felt like a boxspring. I would not stay here again.
The place is a pit
We stayed here with our soccer team for a tournament in Buffalo. The rate was fine (over the internet) but the place is old and seriously in disrepair. Our bathroom had mold all over the top of the walls of the shower, and there was hardly any grout in the walls. the staff was friendly and breakfast was fine. the pool area is yuckky. The place needs a serious cleaning and renovation.
For a no-frills room near the Buffalo airport at a no-frills price of $39.95, the Ramada Limited was a good choice. There was no renovation racket like in the older reviews and staff was friendly and welcoming.
Recently , my girlfriend and I were attending a Concert in BuffaloMy girlffriend booked the Ramada Limited - Williamsville for one night July 15 th 2003We arrived on July 15 th , in the aftertoon and promptly checked into our roomThe room itself was spacious , but lacked recent paint and updating , in my opinionWe had reservered the room online , so we had recieved a good price .We attended our concert that night ,and returned late to our roomThe next morning , prior to 1000 am , I heard loud banging and furniture moving in the room above usOur room was on the main floor , with a big pane of glass .I thought perhaps customers were moving out and were noisyWhen the noise persisted , and shook our glass window , I looked out in disbelief ,The Ramada staff were throwing furniture out the window from the room above and it was landing on the grass, beside our room window on the main levelI quiclkly got my digital camera and took several pictures .It was 1130pm by this time , just then the Hotel Clerk ,called to remind us of our checkout time , which was 12 noonI said we have furniture being thrown out above us Almost hitting our window ! This also woke us up !She said , "We know , its a renovation "I asked myself why @1000 am on a WednesdayShe responded with " Why didnt you call the Front Desk to ask us to stop it !I was flabbergasted , I mentioned to her that I had pictures of this event and that I would persue thisShe didnt seem to care !Very poor attitude for a manager .Might I add , very unsafe for the ramada workers , who had no safety helmets on or safety equipment , and were kicking boards with nails , with no safety shoes on eitherIm just glad that any of this "reno" never went through our hotel window !Very Poor , Dont Stay there !John PiercyPSwe emailed the customer service from Ramada and received a form letter in reply asking us to take it up with the Williamsville Manager !Not a chance !More POOR Customer relations !
We recently needed rooms in the buffalo area for my sons wedding. We are from down state Ny and did not know the area well. We selected Ramada because of your reputation for clean rooms and good service. We posted the site on our web-site so traveling guests could all stay at the same location. We ended up booking a total of 16 rooms for over 25 people. I must state clearly that I have traveled all over the USA and the world and have never experienced so disappointing a location. My wife and I where embarrassed that our guests had to stay in a hotel as bad as this one. Not one guest had a room that was acceptable, they where dirty, unkempt and had many problems. Our rooms are a good example, room 153 had stains on the walls that looked like someone had been murdered in the room, the ceiling had red marks in it, the air conditioning was either on or off nothing in-between, the shower sprayed water all over the bathroom and the toilet overflowed, flooding the room twice, on the day of my sons wedding we where forced to use my sons bathroom to get ready. My sons rooms where no better, a yellow substance leaked from the bathroom ceiling and the room smelled like mildew. All of our guests experienced similar issues. Honestly we would have left but it was impossible to relocate everyone, so in effect we where hostages at this substandard, dirty hotel. The staff was helpful but could not make up for the condition of the property. When I was checking out I discussed these issues with the desk person and basically was told they know everyone complains, but there was nothing they could do. As I drove home on sunday I realized I really should have refused to pay our bill and should have really made more of an issue of the condition of the property.
