Buffalo Bills Game

Hi Everyone,

I am looking for some recommendations on where to stay to see a Buffalo Bills game in August (preseason).

Also, how hard will it be to get to and from the games, we would not want to drive. Will it be difficult to cab it from hotels?

Thanks in advance.

Ralph Wilson Stadium is, unfortunately, from an urban point of view, in the middle of nowhere. It is located well south of the city in a suburban community. The hotels in the immediate area are somewhat isolated and there is little to do on foot. The downtown hotels tend to have a bit more around them, but they do not offer a shuttle service to and from the game to my knowledge.

Buffalo is really not a good public transportation city other than by bus, and frankly, if you aren't used to them I wouldn't recommend them. While there are many, many great interesting and fun places to go, I HIGHLY recommend getting a rental car.

As far as taking a taxi, it would cost greatly...just sayin'.+

Thank you for the response. We would not be getting a rental, as we are neighbors from Canada, and will be driving across the Border (so we will have a vehicle).

I was under the impression from viewing a map that there was not much in the vicinity of the stadium, it is just hard to tell, so thank you for confirming the area.

Neither one of us would care to drive ourselves back from the stadium, as we would be partaking in a few alcoholic beverages while enjoying the game and would not want to drive back home, or to the hotel.

But again I appreciate your response, and honesty. It is helpful!

The stadium is in the middle of nowhere and the traffic after the game rivals Toronto at rush hour during a blizzard. Best to try one of these shuttle services.
