Comfort Inn University
Ranked #7 of 17 Hotels in Amherst
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 December 2013

We stayed at Comfort Inn University near Amherst, New York with two granddaughters. We booked there because of the proximity to shopping areas. Our stay was excellent with very attentive staff. The girls loved the pool and the breakfast room and, of course, the nearby shopping. We will definitely come back to this hotel.

The people were nice and helpful. I always use this hotel when Im visiting my son who lives in the area. The rooms aren't anything too fancy but they are clean and tidy and the beds are nice themselves.

As Christmas drew closer, with no real plans made, we dediced to go visit my Dad in Holley NY. Hazel wanted to visit the Erie County and Buffao Botnaical Gardens. So we made reservations for Dec., 22 with our Choice Points to get the room as an award night. We watched the weather and saw the weather was going to be good, we decided to add a night on Sat 21.The staff, especially Noel was awesome. The room was clean, we found the location is really centrally located our travels. On Sunday we met friends at Frank's Sunny Italy in Kenmore. The food was good (except no meatballs).

We had a nice dinner, lots of laughs and pleasantries. Saturday Night we went to Bocce Pizza Club on Bailey Ave. the best Pizza! I haven't had Bocce Pizza since a I teenager.

Back to the hotel the brerakfast area was clean, the food was fresh, local paper to read was very nice. House keeeping did an excellent job for the two night we were there.

We headed to Rochester NY. Stayed at the another Choice property in Greece NY Comfort Inn, Monday-Tuesday and headed back to Connecticut Chritmas day as work was on the schudle for Thursday. Was a great trip home to and nice accommodations.

Room Tip: Make reservations early, they have an heat pool in behind the check inn desk. People were friendly...

My family stayed at the Amherst Comfort Inn and had a very enjoyable time. We were there for two days and found the staff (morning and evening) very pleasant, helpful, and professional. I would recommend this hotel and will stay the next time we visit Western New York!

We booked a room here since we were seeing a Colm Wilkinson concert at the performing arts center at UB. We live about 45 min. South , but with the winter weather we didn't want to drive home. We checked in at 3 and had a very nice double bed room on the third floor. Room was very clean and we were very impressed that there were 4 pillows on the beds. Two soft and 2 firmer. This made my whole stay, most hotels have too hard pillows, and I slept wonderfully. There was a mini fridge and even an in room safe. Shower was very nice. The staff had informed us there was a welcome dinner, which we checked out after our dinner that we had already planned. They had salad and ravioli. Breakfast buffet was well stocked with fruit, eggs, Danish, waffles, etc., restocked as soon as empty and was still fully stocked to the end at 10 am.. Used the small exercise room, 2 treadmills and a few other equipment. Didn't have time to use the pool, but the room and water were nice and warm. We never heard any noise in our room. Close to shopping at the Boulevard Mall, other stores, plenty of restaurants, and of course UB. Plan to stay here again for our next concert.

This Comfort Inn has it all - great staff (I encountered at least four super duper employees), great lobby (complete w/ fireplace), small work-out room and pool, computer w/printer, and very importantly-clean rooms! There is also a good, fresh breakfast provided and coffee throughout the day.

It's very close to the Buffalo VA hospital, good food, and good shopping! (Zetti's right next door has good calzones and hot subs! - their pizza is probably really good too!)

This is the second time, within a year, that we've stayed at this location. Both times we had an excellent experience!

Definitely keep up the good work to those of you who work there!

Good quality anything is so hard to find these days. Thank you for a truly hospitable and COMFORTable INN!

You all deserve appreciation, raises, and our tips!

(Oh, and, they do provide a luggage "holder" in each room, which are always imortant to use.)

Room Tip: If you choose room 201 or 202, you'll be really close to the lobby, excercise room, and pool. R...
