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

We where looking for an inexpensive hotel room just to sleep in for a few hours after the Rolling Stones Concert. This hotel was 100 times better than anticipated. Rooms where small but modern with laminate floors, new bathroom fixtures and comfy beds. We had a king bed in our room and it has a small desk and drawer space... More

This property is one of Red Roof Inn's remodeled PLUS+ locations. Although a bit more pricey than their older somewhat unpredictable properties, this budget chain's new PLUS+ concept is a welcome addition to this class of hotel. The bath was fresh & clean with granite counter tops . The bed was comfortable, nice lighting, flat screen TV, mini fridge, and... More

For a $137 after taxes and fees, this hotel isn't worth what you pay. However, it is cheaper than most in the area but offers no frills. Check in process was fast and smooth. We arrived to our room and found the AC had not been left on. It was rather warm. We fired up the AC and set it... More

The room is pretty average with ok beds. This hotel location does not serve breakfast which is a little disappointing. However you get round the clock coffee in the lobby. Easy check-in and check-out process. Could be much better.

This hotel was very convenient for the Ride for Roswell event at UB. It was less than 5 minutes from the event site and I was able to do a late check out without any question. Clean room, quiet, and extra towels provided as requested.

Yet another Red Roof Inn! This one is very well located and in a quiet corner of a busy, tourist area which is Buffalo/Niagara. The cleanliness of the room was excellent and the furniture comfortable. We were here for three nights, as we were visiting Niagara Falls, and we could not have chosen better in the area. A little run... More

We stayed here on our way to Toronto. Comfortable rooms, friendly staff. If you are looking for a no frills place to stay, this is a good option. Close to the University at Buffalo North Campus. Nearby restaurants, grocery stores and gas station. Location close to I-290 ramp is also good. Free wifi.
