Looking for a decent room, flying in to BUF

Wife/I/baby will be flying to BUF early May 2010. Will arrive toward evening and spending one night in the Buffalo area. The next day, will drive to Niagara Falls to take that in. I am looking for a nice, clean hotel between BUF and Niagara Falls that is easy to get to, in a nice neighborhood, and offers restaurant choices close by. Anywhere from BUF en route would be good. Also, would like to pay less than $100/nt but can go a tad over if need be.

Not looking for the Ritz BUT something clean and convenient - we want to get to the Falls in short order the next AM to take it in.

The drive from the Buffalo airport to Niagara Falls, is less than 1/2 hour. There are a number of hotels near the airport, but in my experience, airport hotels tend to be noisy. The only decent place that I can think of between the two locations, is the Holiday Inn, Grand Island, which I personally think is a bit isolated. There are more places and restaurants in the Buffalo area, so you might as well stay close by. I would suggest the Millennium Hotel, which is 10 min. from the airport, and is next to a big shopping mall (Walden Galleria), and is pretty busy and pretty safe. Plenty of nearby restaurants. Alternatively, anything in the Amherst area, along Maple, where there are lots of restaurants. Perhaps the Marriott.

You might enjoy the Hampton Inn Williamsville. Very convenient and set in a very nice village atmoshere with plenty of dining options very close by. Try the Eagle House on Main Street.

The Hampton Inn in Williamsville was my first thought, too, but the rates are well over $100/night (starting at $135). A close alternative would be the Lord Amherst, at $109/night (http://lordamherst.com). That would put you in the same neighborhood, close to the same shops and restaurants.

Go on hotwire about two weeks before. For $58 which includes all the NY taxes, I got a room at the Millenium hotel.
