This Red Roof has been updated. We stayed in a premium room with 2 double beds. We had a frig and microwave. It was clean and comfortable and well maintained. This hotel is fairly priced and very close to the UB campus. There are several other hotels close by but we have always found this one to be the best... More

lovely staff, but the A/C is sub par. We were hot the entire time. The place is pet friendly and all the staff were nice. The rooms were clean and the area nice., very near eateries and the highway for traveling, but again it was hot.

We came from Canada to stay here, not really knowing what to expect. When we got there, the staff were very friendly and helpful. We got the premium room and it was awesome. The room was already cooled down with the AC going, which was very welcoming on an extremely hot day. The bathroom is huge, nice big tub, and... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night on our way to Niagara Falls. The desk attendants were friendly and polite. Despite being full, the location was quiet. The bedding and room were clean, but a bit worn-out. The hotel would benefit from room and parking lot remodeling. The hotel, however, is only about 35 minutes from Niagara Falls. It... More

I stayed in several different rooms and they were all EXTREEMLY clean and renovated. I never had any issues with the housekeeping staff or any of the desk personnel. I dealt with Dave mostly.

It was great to spend another five nights back "home" in Amherst where I lived for the most part of my life. The Red Roof PLUS in Amherst is such a great place to stay. It is clean, well-managed, and conveniently located near shopping areas, the north campus of the University of Buffalo, and the Youngmann Expressway. From the Youngmann,... More
