Nice room that met my super picky need for clean. The first thing I noticed was the fresh smell, not that shut up hotel room smell! Bed was very comfortable but the pillows were more for show than sleeping. Being right across from the university, there was a lot of noise from other guests. That may not be an issue... More

I recently attended a seminar at University of Buffalo and decided to stay at the Red Roof Inn based on location and initial price. I've stay in RRI before, but what I didn't expect was a complete remodeled room that in my opinion was just as good as other hotels at twice the price. Keep in mind that even at... More

The Red Roof Inn at Buffalo Amherst exceeded our expectations. For a price well under $100, we got an extremely clean and updated room. The room was spacious enough to accommodate the 4 of us easily. The front desk and housekeeping staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating. The hotel is within walking distance from a local pizza shop and a... More

We stayed there for 3 nights while attending a youth hockey tournament. The rooms were clean and nicely updated. It was very convenient with an outside entrance to be able to carry everything directly to your room. The saff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The price was great. Would highly recommend this place. Very convenient to shops/restaurants/skating.
