Disappointed when we found last guests' stuff still under beds. Wondering what else hadn't been clean. Woke up to load my luggage into car only to see a man outside the door sleeping in his car. What kind of place is this??!?

This is an older property that has recently been renovated and updated. The hardwood floors are something different and add some sophistication to the room. My room had a mini fridge and and microwave and a comfortable king bed. This property is an old school motel. Exterior corridors and you park right out in front of your room. Which can... More

We stayed here for two nights during orientation at the university. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Wifi was patchy, there are no hairdryers in the room. The shower curtain did not help keep the water in the shower very well. Very basic room, great for a one night stop over and we will probably be back many times. Our son... More

I booked at this Red Roof Inn over July 4th weekend while visiting family in the area. The room was very well cleaned, which is most important to me when staying at a hotel. Spotless bathroom, clean floor etc. Nice crisp sheets. Surprisingly quiet and peaceful despite being fully booked. I did check out a day early, only because hotels... More

I like this property because of their location to the boulevard mall area and there is lots of parking at this facility. There are two floors but you have to walk up stairs for the 2nd level as there is no elevator. Staff is friendly and helpful at the front desk and even after I asked to change my room... More

After 3 separate stays at the Red Roof in Amherst each time has been worse than the previous time. Our son just finished his 1st year at UB, so over a 9 month period from July 2013 to April 2014 we've stayed 3 times. First visit was fine -- mot the cleanest, but it was fine. Second stay room was... More

Stayed here while my son was at camp at UB, the location was perfect for UB and easy access to Millersport Highway. The staff were friendly and helpful and the motel was very quite, nice not to have hallway noise all night. I have pet allergies and they accommodated my request even though it is pet friendly I didn't have... More

Nothing fancy about the rooms, but clean and surprisingly quiet. Clean bathroom as well. Not very spacious, but fine for sleeping. Very close to the University at Buffalo. It would be nice to have breakfast, but for the price, it was a very good value. They offer a special rate if you have a student at UB. Will stay there... More
