We enjoyed this hotel. They had the best room rate in town. They offered free coffee all through the day, but I am not a coffee drinker. The room was quite clean, except for a wet towel behind the restroom. Also, when we arrived to our room with our room key, the door was already open. We checked the room...

Me and my husband stayed here for visiting Niagra Falls, which is like 30 minutes from this hotel. It's nice and affordable.. and worth the price we paid and in short distance for many other things. It also has many food places around within 1 mile or so... so looking for food isn't an issue. Overall, a good stay!

We stayed at this hotel over a weekend, honestly not expecting much for the price we paid. Instead of the dimly lit, small, antiquated room that normally comes with budget hotels, we were pleasantly surprised by the modern and warm environment. Clean, well appointed, and very conveniently located on the ground floor with car parking just outside the room, it...

We stayed at this location just before New Years. We have been here before and we like the great location and quality of the facility for the cost. The rooms were updated a few years back to give them a more modern look. The TVs are flat screen, the mattress was comfortable enough, and the room was quiet to outside...

I have been at the Red Roof Inn in Amherst probably 20 times in the last 10 years and have always felt like I was part of an extended family. Any problems are taken care of on the spot (very seldom do problems exist) and the staff goes out of their way to make me feel comfortable.

We got a fantastic rate at hotel which is why we booked here. Room (2 queen beds) was OK however I think this was the first time I've stayed somewhere that they did NOT have the usual necessities available - shampoo, conditioner, soap or cream. Very basic rooms and very small bathroom that needs an updating. They do leave out...

We always stay at the Red Roof in Amherst when in Buffalo. The rooms are always clean and Management and staff go the extra mile to make our stay great. Staff recommend great places to eat and shop; we always refer our friends.

This hotel was a nice little surprise. Having never stayed at a Red Roof Inn before, I was a little hesitant but the price sold me. Check in was blazing fast and the staff were very kind.

This hotel was good for the intended length of my stay (1 night), but I probably wouldn't have stayed there for a longer period of time. The room had dust on many surfaces. But maybe it is expected from a budget hotel. Room had a conditioner, a TV, and a shower which was nice after a long and tiring day....
