We booked the hotel on the web after researching dog-friendly hotels. I was pleased that the Red Roof Inn does not charge extra for pets OR have a weight limit for dogs. We arrived at 10pm and found the room easily. We were placed at the back of the Inn which I appreciated, making doggie trips outside simple. The room... More

I stayed at the Red Roof Inn on Flint Road, near the north campus of the University of Buffalo, in October 2016. The staff was extremely friendly, which is typical for Buffalo and comforting for someone who was raised there, and the location, size of the room, and amenities were all very good.

Look, it's a Red Roof, so don't expect the Plaza. But if you're looking for an inexpensive, clean, friendly and safe place to stay - particularly when visiting the University at Buffalo, which is ACROSS THE STREET, you can't do better than this Red Roof Plus. Welcoming staff, decent amenities and safe grounds. I'm definitely pleased.
