We would stay again for sure. Rooms were clean and bed was great. Service was good. As with any red roof dont expect a great free breakfast. But clean, friendly, and a very helpful front desk. The price is great, you cant really go wrong.

First off let me say the hotel's room was very clean and nicely decorated. However you should know there are three choices of "value". The standard choice, which is the least expensive, does not include a hair dryer, iron/ironing board, coffeepot, microwave or refrigerator. To get these in your room, you need to choose the more expensive "deluxe" rooms. There... More

My husband and I were happy with our accommodations. The room was spotless when we arrived and except for a sticky floor from not rinsing it, everything was pristine. The option is given to make your own bed(s)and simply change your own towels which we took advantage of because we just don't make much work only sleeping there while visiting... More

This was our second stay at the hotel. Check in and out was easy. David was at the desk for both. He was pleasant and friendly.

We arrived late and checked into our room. The staff was polite but not friendly. The room itself was very nice, it looked like it was newly renovated. The decor was modern and very clean. The location was very good, close to a lot of restaurants and a shopping mall. Very close to the highway as well. It's a good... More

The room was very clean and everything appeared modern and well-maintained. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The wifi (free) worked great. The only negative was that our room did not have shampoo or conditioner (either night) and there was not enough towels for two people to have a shower (I specified two guests). I will come back to...

We have stayed at this Red Roof Inn many times while visiting our children at UB. The rooms have always been clean and functional, now many of them have been upgraded in the past year to include flatscreen TVs and some with king size beds. If you are visiting students at UB North campus the location can't be beat. Not... More
