Very clean, comfortable, good location

The room was very clean and everything appeared modern and well-maintained. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The wifi (free) worked great. The only negative was that our room did not have shampoo or conditioner (either night) and there was not enough towels for two people to have a shower (I specified two guests). I will come back to this hotel in the future for sure.

Great for UB events

Very close to the university with a pizza/bar across the street which was very convenient. Easy access to Millersport Hwy, which gets you to UB South or 290 E/W easily. Nice room for the price, a little small but perfect for a night's stay. Room is as pictured.

Clean, great location, nothing fancy

I stayed 2 nights while attending a meeting at the university. I'm not a breakfast person, so no free breakfast didn't bother me. The room was squeaky clean, bed comfortable, and tv selection great. Small basic bathroom got the job done. Room did smell a bit musty, but humidity was terrible during my stay. All in all it worked for my needs.

Need some heavy cleaning

The room was okay, but the bathroom was not clean as expected. I talk to the staff on my check out about this. The toilet cover was very dirty. To stay a night just to sleep it is okay, but not a place to stay for vacation or more than 2 days.

Sports Weekend

The Red Roof experience was a good one for our Age 55 and Over Basketball Team called "The Sugar Daddies." Nothing out of the ordinary...The staff was good and met all of our basic needs. The hotel was close to our national event at UB and we hope to return to the Red Roof next year to defend our Age 55 and Over Recreation Basketball Title. Blessings...Lahh Woods 2014 Sugar Daddies
