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

My family stayed at this hotel for 8 days in July 2014. We had a very good rate. The service was not what we expected and relayed our concerns to the on site manager, nothing was done. After returning home, I completed the survey sent by Red Roof and was contacted by the general manager. He refunded 2 nights and... More

Early check-in was allowed by friendly front desk manager. Comfortable beds. Tiny bathroom. My only complaint is that the laminated flooring desperately needed washing. White sox turned black quickly.

We couldn't find a hotel room at any of the other hotels we normally stay at. We ended up getting a room at Red Roof Plus on the University of Buffalo Campus, Amherst, NY. There are 2 buildings and we were in the far one. We had a ground floor room so were able to park right in front of... More

We had booked a standard room but when we arrived around 9pm, we found the toilet used (and not flushed) mysterious stains on the underskirt, blood stained sheets on the beds and unwashed pillow cases! We spoke to the front desk and they moved us to another room (for one night only) saying that they didn't have anyone to clean... More

Just back from a 2-night "stay-cation" in upstate NY. While the hotel is older, the rooms have been upgraded and very surprised. Nice clean laminate flooring, mini-fridge, microwave, iron board, iron, safe(see note). Crisp white linens and LOTS of pillows. You can't compare the size of the room to a luxury hotel but for what we needed it was purr-fect!... More

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
