Red Roof Inn PLUS+ University at Buffalo - Amherst

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I arrived on time for the check in but the room was not ready. I left and came back in an hour plus as suggested by front desk but still no room. I waited for another 30 minutes and still room not ready. I was unable to shower and get ready for a dinner plan I had as I flew in early morning.

The room was very clean, comfortable with polite staff. It was right next to the Marriott where the conference was.

I had a wonderful time on my 5 day vacation trip. My main gold was to see Niagara Falls and I did it. I visit the Buffalo Zoo, CanalSide, Navy and Military Memorial , With the help of my GPS, I got around fine. It was a very good relaxing vacation for me. Upon my next visit I plan to see the things I missed. I will for sure make a list. The weather was alittle cooler. Great sunny days to get out and see somethings. Oh yes I did visit the Old Fort Niagara in Youngstown , New York. Red Roof Inn Plus Hotel is very close to the airport. I found getting to the rental car easy and finding myself around the airport was also easy.

Survey wouldn't allow me to rate. Probably technical difficulties. Anyways everything was excellent and will be returning.

My reservation was through Orbitz on a package with JetBlue tickets. However, the Red Roof systems rejected the credit card Orbitz sent to them so Red Roof did not have my reservation even though I had a confirmation for late arrival. Fortunately, they had a room for me, but had to charge my credit card which means I will have to seek a refund from Orbitz which already charged my card as part of the package deal. - Orbitz blew this one. The room was very small, so I couldn't do my morning exercise and stretches - not enough floor space. The commode room is so small I hit my head on the door knob at night in the dark in the process of sitting down on the low commode. They also charge $1.50 a day for use of the in room safe which can we waived upon checkout, but you have to know to do that, or, it will be on your bill and you will pay.

Staff were great and accommodating. I had a major problem with my reservation (Orbitz' fault, not the hotel's), and the staff helped me with excellent customer service.

The room was nice the king size bed was extremely comfortable but there was the sting smell of weed in the hallways outdoors

My stay was for pleasure, this place is great for the price! Cool location access to anywhere via the 290. I would stay here again and recommend to friends

Room smelled of strong chemical. Probably bug spray since we killed several ants. Would not stay there again

While I am looking for a reasonable hotel with a normal price, Red Roof inn fits the bill. It is still pricey.. The room was small. The TV was fixed to the wall. Not many places in the room that you can be comfortable to watch TV.. Red Roof traditionally don't offer breakfast. BUT due to the location, there is no breakfast place nearby. SO Red Roof Inn should consider providing breakfast. Also, we found couple cochroaches in the room. This freak out my wife. Will we go back? Probably not.

We like red roof inns when traveling with the dog. Rooms are always nice and comfortable

Overall it was good. Room had cob webs in corners of ceiling, crumbs on floor. Cleanliness needs closer supervision.

Good 2 night stay, very clean, bed is comfortable

I would stay again. The room seemed recently updated. Close to UB and 12 minutes from the airport.

not bad for the price I paid for the location is far from many things it is only close the the UB university if you want a good hotel close the university, it is that hotel if you want other things to do, it should not be this one

just go there to buy a car. it s cheap but decent place to stay. convinient. i love there

Great value for the price! Clean and comfortable would have been nice to have a coffee maker

While the hotel was clean, rooms were small with few amenities. For $160/night, including taxes, I expected more as compared to what other chains provide for the money.

I just needed a room to be in to be close to University of Buffalo for orientation. There were no frills but I didn't need any. The drawbacks are the sink faucet was loose from the sink and the room had a strange smell. The top of the toilet tank didn't sit properly on the tank and the bathroom felt a little cramped. It was fine fort needs but I wouldn't stay their if I wanted a romantic getaway or a relaxing vacation.
