The Buffalo Bills play at Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park, NY—10 miles from downtown Buffalo and a short drive from the city’s “Southtowns” suburbs such as Hamburg and Aurora. Since the stadium (known in the past as Rich Stadium, Ralph Wilson Stadium and New Era Field) is in the suburbs, your most convenient hotel choices tend to be affordable chain properties. Staying near Highmark also means you have a convenient launching pad for exploring Niagara Falls, 30 miles away, and local favorites such as Erie County Botanical Gardens. Here are the best hotels near Highmark Stadium.

Online reviewers like the convenience of this chain that’s just three miles far from Highmark and walking distance from McKinley Mall. “We stayed here for Garth Brooks’ concert,” writes a Tripadvisor user. “Price was high but it was very convenient—we went to Outback Steak house when we arrived and we took an Uber to the stadium without issue.” A Google reviewer complains about the breakfast: “It’s a bag which includes a juice box, cereal bar, and donuts! Not exactly a gourmet breakfast. The rooms are average. The area is relatively quiet considering it’s close to the highway.”    >> Book this hotel for less

It’s near the highway, but we can barely hear the traffic.”   >> Book this hotel for less
