Hi all. I am hoping to come to your beautiful city mid August. A friend of mine wants me to go to the Erie County Fair with her. I would be taking the Greyhound up (I don't drive) and am looking for a relatively cheap hotel to stay at walking distance from the terminal (or on a bus route, as I'm sure I'd be able to sit in the station and learn the routes, or even a taxi, depending on the prices). I would only be coming up for a few days (4 at the most, 3 nights (this would include the Greyhound, so the first and last day would be half days, if that).

Thanks so much in advance!


(I know that Uber/Lyft aren't options other than within NYC itself in New York).

Nothing really cheap.

- Cheapest option downtown (kinda walking distance) is Adams Mark.
- University Manor is near the University of Buffalo can be reached via Metro rail (University Metro Station - last stop) from downtown
- can also transfer to Bus Route 34 (Niagara Falls Blvd) from the University Metro Station - cheap motels along this route as it heads toward Niagara Falls
- not a hotel but Hostel Buffalo-Niagara is very close to the station

I was going to say yes to Hostel Buffalo. I stayed there when I needed to take the early morning bus to NYC and the folks there are great. Just make sure to let them know when you plan on arriving as their desk isn't staffed 24/7.
