Recommend for all parents of Buffalo students. Give a preferred rate when you call front desk directly. Clean and comfortable and great location while visiting the school. Staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Cons: My room was small (the king-sized bed took... More

I needed a place to stay while visiting family in WNY. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I had to change my arrival date several times. Stephanie was just a doll about it. Upon arrival, I asked Stephanie for a quiet room. She ended up giving me a deluxe room, with fridge, microwave and coffee maker, in the quietest part of the... More

We enjoyed our stay the the Red Roof + in Ahmerst. It is a great location just off 290 and not far from I-90 (NYS Thruway). Also noticed that it is located next to University at Buffalo if you are staying for an event there. Room was clean and no issues to report during our stay.

This Inn is ideally suited for the cross-border shopper. It has been considerably upgraded as a "Plus+" property, while maintaining its rates at reasonable levels. I love the fact that this is entirely a non-smoking property.The staff are truly excellent. They strive to make their guests feel welcome and important, and they are successful. The WiFi works flawlessly and the... More

A tote containing valuable items was left in the room. Sean, the manager, priority mailed it to me. He was great! The Plus room's details including the snacks in the refrigerator and the bed linens were lovely.

The room smelled like someone died in it, and on top of that my family and I were having asthma attacks because of the smell of cigarettes, not cleaned out of the room. At night, it was awful to breathe and the smell lingered everywhere. Even if I was paid to stay there, I would never go again!

We have enjoyed this lactation hospitality for the past eight years. Shawn and his staff know us by first names, and provide clean comfortable rooms. RRI is close to many restaurants and shopping within a few minutes drive. We recommend this RRI to our friends who will travel through Buffalo. We have never been disappointed. 😀 🇨🇦

I'll start with the three positives. The staff was friendly and quick. The room was pleasantly decorated. Check in was quick and friendly. Now.....upon entering our room, the dampness and strong musty smell was just HORRIBLE. The laminate flooring was all sticky and the floor was and felt so dirty. The loud air conditioner was a mere 3 feet from... More

We just needed a place to crash with two beds and the airport Red Roof was booked. We came here and was very glad we did. It's a "plus", so it's renovated (or new, not sure). Instead of the carpet all over, it's only carpet next to the beds, and wood floors otherwise. The nightstand between the beds had a... More
