All 3 rooms were handicap accessible- spacious, clean and well-equipped. Free wifi was great to have and so was the cable TV! The coffee... More

I needed to take an overnight to Buffalo and decided to book the Red Roof through Hotwire.

They've been renovating this RR for a while (I stayed here and reviewed it in March 2012) and this time the buildings had flipped roles as the one being renovated was now occupied, and the other one was being tidied up.

Pastry flakes between sheets and cover, massive cob webs in shower ceiling area and in sink ceiling area, dirty light switch, faint smell of smoke (non smoking room), could of been an "old " renovated room as it already looked tired (old T.V). If you want a hair dryer, NEED TO BORROW from front desk. Room was quiet though.

We stayed at this location while on a trip to niagara falls. Room was fairly clean. Although my daughter did complain about it being dirty under the bed. I liked the fact it was close to shopping. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.
