Was on way back to canada from NYC, got caught in the ridiculous lake effect snow. Check-in was smooth, room was clean and quiet. Only stayed a few hours until the roads had been cleared. Would recommend though as it is a clean and quiet building, surrounded by several other hotels/motels.

This property exemplifies what I've come to expect from the Red Roof business model: a perfectly adequate, clean and well-appointed room at as low a price as one could ever expect. The man at the front desk was courteous, friendly and competent. The King room was exactly the same as any other RR King. There was a microwave, a fridge,... More

Once again the stays were great! Stephanie was very helpful and accommodating. Great place to stay. Easy on and off the I290. My wife and I stay at a lot of the Red Roofs and when in the Buffalo area this is the one to stay at.

Dave @ reception was amazing. Got a very clean seizable room, comfortable bed and pillows. Room had nice furniture which looked new and the wifi is much better than many 3/4 star hotels i have stayed in Amherst. The best of all is location, minutes away from everything. For the price, Redroof is a pretty good deal. I will stay... More

So, here's the deal. My wife and I are teachers, so we don't make a ton of money. We do however like clean things, great values and something that rewards us. Well, if you like the same things, Red Roof is the place for you. And the Red Roof near UB in Buffalo passes any and all expectations. We have... More
