The room was very dusty, the bedspread had stains, the shower drain was clogged and the water did not drain. Finally there were ANTS in the bathroom. This was all in the second room after we asked to be moved from our first room because of stains on the floor. Very disappointed.

Have stayed here a few times with different people on a shopping mini-break/weekend, and have been satisfied every time. Rooms are always clean, check in is always efficient, and it's a nice quiet stay every time. It's a couple blocks drive from Boulevard Mall, and a good half-way point if you plan to hit both the Niagara Outlet Mall and... More

The employees at the hotel are just fantastic. The front desk staff, Stephanie and David, are always so helpful to make sure I have what I need (i.e. extra pillow, fresh coffee). The housekeeping staff, Amelia, always makes sure the room looks like you had just checked in. It feels like family when I do stay there. Great job!!

We frequently stay at this hotel because it's great value for the cost, with clean, updated and comfortable rooms. We'd had an issue with another Red Roof honoring a coupon, so I emailed this location. The manager, Shawn, was prompt in his reply, and very helpful. He took care of everything for us and the service was great. I'd highly... More

Most importantly the room was clean and well priced. The TV worked well and it was a great location. The staff was friendly. Room was small but was there for two nights and it sufficed. Would defiantly stay there again.

simple rooms with bathroom and not much else.Limited towels , No coffee maker, hair dryer or even an Iron. Was going to stay for four nights but checked after one. The mattress was so bad that I woke up with extreme pain on my back. The location is fine and that's about all this place is good for.
