TripAdvisor Ratings

Great stay for hanging in Buffalo with pets
January 18, 2020

My husband and I have two small dogs which we take on weekends away. This location of Red Roof fits our needs perfectly as it is clean, pet friendly (with no extra pet fees) and has no carpet so easy to wipe floor after walking with dogs in the snow or rain. Without carpet, the room feels cleaner and is easier to maintain that feeling without any problem. We can usually park right outside our room and there is a fantastic place to go for a dog walk across the street at the University of Buffalo. Great pizza on the block at Zetti’s and a short drive to great shopping and other restaurants. We always stay in this location because it suits all we need for an overnight in the Buffalo area. Thanks Red Roof!

Inexpensive hotel, comfortable bed
January 01, 2020

We had a standard room on the ground floor. Pluses: - Room was inexpensive. - Bed was comfortable. - Staff were polite. Minuses: - Room seemed a little small. - Room seemed a little worn (e.g. sink faucet was loose, facing on a drawer was chipped, shower head leaked where it attached to pipe) - We could not open the entry door until another guest told us that the outside lever door handle needed to be pulled up instead of pushed down. If you are looking for a place to sleep and the rate is good, this can fill the bill. As there is a small charge for the safe in the room, you can ask for the charge to be removed if you are not using it.

Excellent hotel, clean!!

Fantastic stay, I’ve stayed here before, I really like it. It’s conveniently close to everything for a shopaholic! The room was perfect and clean. The check in and check out staff were very friendly too

Night of terror
November 10, 2019

When we arrived it was very difficult to open the door Room 210. When we finally got it open the inside door lever had fallen off and we couldn’t get out of the room! We called the front desk and he immediately came up opened the door and put a new lever on it. He was great and if not for him I would give our stay a 0. The toilet seat was loose and slid when you sat down. The lever on the shower was loose and looked like it would fall off at any moment. The water spout was loose and moved when touched. The hair dryer was falling off the wall. Now this is no fault of the hotel but the room next door kept constantly going in and out of the room and slamming the door. They were also very loud. They kept their TV on all night at an extremely high level and we could hear it all night. Very hard to sleep. They had people knocking at their door constantly and it was very loud but the worst was early in the morning about 6:30 someone was knocking on their door and yelling. Than they knocked on our door and also our window and were yelling loudly. It was very scary and we just lied in bed as quiet as we could be as we feared that maybe they would shoot through the window as they were very determined and very scary sounding. We have stayed in many Red Roof Inns but this was the worst experience ever!
