First room was not cleaned, second room bed was made! We pulled back the sheets- the mattress was stained with trine & blood! There were black droppings on the mattress?bed bugs! The bathroom smelled like cat urine & had mould on the floor & ceiling! There was a bug crawling across the floor as we felt! Thank you Expedia for refunding our money!
Can't speak for the other rooms in the complex but #103 had stained sheets, hair on floor, red splatter on the wall, sticky spot on the floor, dirty tub and what looked like food crumbs in the sink. It was alos very dated and had a subtle smell of cigarettes. Even the window to room next door was cracked. I'd say you "get what you paid for" but this still was too much. Checked in during the afternoon just to drop our stuff off. Didn't realize it was so bad until we returned later that evening. Booked at a neighboring hotel at 11:50 that night.
If you read the reviews for this Red Roof Inn, it is very much a case of “before and after.” Check the dates of the reviews. This motel, up until new management took over seemingly about a year ago, was my go to stay when visiting family in Amherst. It was immaculate, quiet and lovely. I booked a room for my sister and myself on a trip to take care of my sick mom last summer. The rooms were absolutely filthy. I mean, filthy. Skin crawling nasty. The place was unrecognizable from the pristine motel I knew. Stained sheets, stained walls, stained bedspreads, dirty towels, dirty everything etc…disgusting. There were clearly people staying long term on the property who were using the motel for illicit activities, and were actually threatening. We checked out each of our rooms for about five minutes, and left. In that time, one “guest” let her pit bull nearly attack my sister, and I had two women actively watching my every move through the window in a not so friendly manner. Shame on the new management. Shame on them for turning a nice, well priced motel in a safe and quiet neighborhood next to UB into a filthy, absolutely gross situation. Corporate should take action.…
I don’t like writing these but I really feel it’s necessary. Very very dirty! Hair on pillow, stains on pillow cases. Used towels in bathroom. No clean towels at all. Worst of all, if that’s not bad enough, I felt something fall on my face while sleeping. I turn light on and look up and see water stained ceilings and part of it falling down. Cigarette butts all around the outside. Not maintenance whatsoever! My Husband has stayed here years ago and he said it wasn’t like this but we found out from other disappointed guests it was under new management. I understand today’s issues finding employees but these People just don’t seem to care.
The negative reviews here are accurate. The Health Department would shut this place down. The basics were not at all provided: towels, pillow cases. No cold water, live tick on bed, cigarette butts etc.
We had one of the most awful experiences we've ever had staying in a hotel and will never stay there again. We had to ask for toilet paper. We had to ask for fresh towels. We did not see housekeeping once all week. We saw numerous safety violations including: loose deck slats, open doors to unrented rooms where anyone off the street could've walked in and spent the without anyone knowing, cracked light switch plates among other things. The sink was also slow to drain after brushing teeth or shaving. There was garbage and food under the bed, I even found an adult toy package under the one bed. My 3 year old's feet were black from just walking around our room. Overall, the room was just NOT CLEAN and short staffed or not it should've atleast been clean. We are not the only one's to have complaints, we learned of others experiencing issues also after speaking to a gentleman staying in the room next to us and also my husband overheard another guest expressing an issue when he went into the office to ask for toilet paper.…
Can't even say we stayed. Checked in and checked out. The best part of our stay was that we were refunded (in 3-5 business days) without much of an argument. This is my first review but since I picked this hotel based on all of the amazing reviews I read I thought this would be a great find but there were bugs a bad smell and shower was disgusting. I didn't even want to use the toilet. Absolutely worst place ever.
DO NOT STAY THERE. !!!! My new room “ smoke free”. Smells real bad There was food under the bead and in the air conditioner Bathroom was. Real dirty. They have no quality control. Fire alarm was broken the surrounding are is not clean.
We were upgraded to their premium room and working desk was a big deal for me as working person. Internet was super fast compare to other hotels in that area. Will stay again. It is conveniently located to my work place.
Family trip to Buffalo, unable to even stay in the room for 30 minutes. Had to book somewhere else. Room was very dirty, smelled of cigarette smoke, fresh stains on sheets like they had not been changed from previous guests 🤮and no towels in the room. When asked the front desk for towels was told none were available. Tried putting heat on, it was super loud to the point where you couldn't even hear the television. Would not recommend staying here. Will not be returning to this place.
