TripAdvisor Ratings

clean and inexpensive
May 13, 2019

Room was well maintained and generally clean. Rate was good and reception at front desk was quick and friendly. A few bad points. First, we turned the heat on, room was 63 degrees when we checked in. Once the temperature came up, it just kept rising. we turned it down to just barely on and it was still too hot to touch, we were able to make it OK by running the A/C at the same time. The front desk apologized and said they would have it looked at. She said she would have moved us but as we were able to cool it with the A/C, we didn't really have a problem. There was also several dark hairs in the tub and wash basin. As the room was very clean this was a mystery. The front desk mentioned that the housekeeper has dark hair, it may have been the result of the cleaning. On the plus side, it was quiet and well located.

Great experience!

Gary and Crystal at the front desk are absolutely wonderful to guests. We ended up staying a bit longer than anticipated... they went above and beyond to make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. Our first room had a bit of an uncomfortable bed, so Crystal even showed me several other rooms until I found one we liked! The housekeepers are incredibly friendly and helpful as well. Rooms are absolutely spotless. And of course pets stay free, and all the staff love to meet, pet and love on your pups! Our Chuhuahua pup took off accidently the first night, and everyone ran out to help us grab her! This is our go-to hotel when we stay in Buffalo, we've always had a wonderful stay. Free coffee and papers in the lobby. I highly recommend upgrading to the Premium rooms... for the nominal upcharge the bedding is very comfy, there's a box of snacks, water and juice in the fridge, and Seattle's Best Coffee. Thanks everyone for a great stay!

I go there twice a year. I am from Canada and they hold packages there for me. The service is always exceptional thanks to Crystal and Lisa. The rooms are clean. Great location. Highly recommended. For sure one of the best Red Roof Inns.

Terrific location

As an out of town graduate student at UB I find the Res Roof Inn Plus in Amherst to be an invaluable tool in my educational experience. Rather that shuttling to my classes two days a week, I often choose to inexpensively stay overnight. Crystal, at the front desk always treats my like a pro! She's the lead point in creating an experience that is welcoming, clean, and always exactly what I need. The rooms aren't fancy, but they have comfortable appointments, and always free, reliable wifi. There are lots of restaurants nearby (check out Duff's!), And I can easy hop a Stampede shuttle to either North or South campus. Give this place a shot, I'm glad the I have!

Stayed at this motel and was pleasantly surprised. It was clean and updated. It was close to all the places I like to visit as well. Daughter and I were there to see a game at the keybank center so location was important. In short, its was worth the 51 dollars American to stay there. Do I recommend it? Most certainly.
