TripAdvisor Ratings

I've stayed here before and still love it!
June 12, 2018

The location is great - easy to access from the highway. Lots of food options tho this time I did not eat near here. Alishia at the front desk was great - friendly and efficient. I always find good customer service here. The place is clean, pet friendly and quiet (and I was here on a Saturday night - no loud parties). Rooms are accessible tho I wonder why the handicapped parking is not hear the ADA rooms.

Good price for the location
April 21, 2018

It is extremely close to UB. You can walk on campus if you want. About a mile or less. No frills but a clean room and comfortable bed. I had a problem with booking the wrong date (either me or the computer) but the hotel fixed the problem (through and was given the day I wanted two days later. Definitely stay there again. My door handle didn't work well to enter the room and a piece of floor molding was coming off in the bathroom. I told them at checkout so hopefully room 219 is fixed. Minor inconveniences that I am sure I could have gotten another room if I asked. Place is bigger than it appears in the photos but all exterior walk up rooms. It is able half the price of the hotels right next door.

Excellent Location and Value
March 13, 2018

We have stayed at this Red Roof Inn location dozens of times in the past. Its the perfect location for a cross border shopping weekend, conveniently located between two great shopping areas. The rooms are always clean and comfortable and the price is incomparable! Check in and check out was easy and quick. We will definitely return.

Clean, comfortable and quiet.
February 05, 2018

We enjoyed a comfortable and quiet night’s stay at Red Roof Inn Plus in Amherst. Our (upgraded) superior room was very clean, spacious and equipped with a comfortable king-size bed (complete with assorted labelled “hard” and “soft” pillows), mini fridge, microwave oven, room safe and large desk. The sink/ countertop and mirrors were outside the bathroom itself, which is a big plus for a couple getting ready at the same time. We stay at many hotels every year and Shawn, the front desk receptionist when we checked in, was one of the most genuinely pleasant, friendly and helpful we’ve ever encountered. She helped us in booking a taxi and when it was discovered that there was going to be a significant delay in it arriving, arranged for an alternative taxi company. Good value for the money, our experience at Red Roof Inn Plus in Amherst was a positive one and we would return here.
