“Good stay for the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

It was a better stay than i expected. The staff including the cleaning lady was very nice and helpful. The rooms were nice and clean. The beds were comfortable. It was a nonsmoking facility, which was a plus for me. If i'm ever in the area again and the prices are the same or better, i would stay again.

After reading other reviews on Tripadvisor for this hotel we decided to try it. We do not normally stay at Red Roof Inns. We were nicely surprised at our room. It is very clean and appears to have been painted not too long ago. There is ample lighting in the room and also outlets. The bathroom is large since we are in a handicap room. The only drawback is that there is no place to put items in the bathroom, there is no vanity. There is a very nice flat screen TV, a microwave and fridge. This is much more reasonable than other nearby big name hotels. The bed is very comfortable and the place is quiet. Do not hesitate to stay here.

Not to sound snobby, but... I do not typically stay at motels; I feel a lot safer in hotels. With that being said, I felt fine booking this place after the positive reviews (I knew that the area was in a safe area). My mother and I ended up in a handicap room (very accommodating, if needed). The bed was comfortable. This hotel is a good value. PS - try the hotel soap (my mother was OBSESSED with it).

We are so happy that you decided to stay with us. We hope that now you will become a loyal Red Roof Inn guest and we look forward to seeing you next time you are in the area.

We stayed in Buffalo for two nights in this hotel. The location of the hotel is close to the highway makes it very easy to go around the town to shopping spots and dinning places.
The room was adequate and very clean. AC works fine. the staff were friendly and efficient.
I really recommend this hotel if you are planning on staying in Buffalo area.

Let's face it, Buffalo isn't a prime tourist destination and it's not a huge city either. We were well served by the Red Roof Inn in Amherst which provided us with a good proximity to some of the hot "foodie" spots for buffalo (Duff's for wings, Charlie the Butcher for Beef on Weck and Ted Hot Dogs). It was also very easy to get to I90 to continue our trip. Staying in this location gave us a chance to see much of the city by driving through and around it without being too far from downtown to drive back and visit or two close to downtown to be overly pricey. The room was very clean, nicely updated and our car was parked less than 8 feet away and direcly in front of our door. The front desk staff was very helpful and it was really nice to walk into a motel room that didn't have or smelled like it had an old crusty, carpeted floor. It smelled and looked clean. This Red Roof Inn made me consider looking up other Red Roof Inn on future visits.

My family had the best experience here. The staff was so nice and welcoming. The room was completely renovated with the newest and latest decor. The only reason I chose to stay here was because of their pet policy. It is difficult to go on vacation with dogs but we have no choice. Not only do they welcome pets, you can leave them unattended if they are crated. We were able to enjoy Niagara Falls knowing that our dogs were safe in a nice hotel. This was THE MOST relaxing vacation I have taken! Thank you Red Roof Inn and especially Red Roof Inn Buffalo-Amherst!

Spent 6 nights at this hotel, the staff was helpful and courteous, the Manager Shawn G went out of his way to make sure my stay was pleasant and uneventful. He needs to be considered for employee of the year. The room was clean and quiet. I would stay there again.
