TripAdvisor Ratings

Clean, comfortable, and dog-friezzndly
October 22, 2017

I recently stayed here with my 2 dogs. The room was clean and comfortable and conveniently located. We enjoyed our stay and we were pleased with the value. There was a desk space for laptop work and complimentary wifi. There were spacious drawers for clothing storage and a high shelf for dog food storage. We would return.

Still a great Hotel!

We spent a few nights here, maybe 4 years ago, so when we had the chance to visit Niagra Falls again, this was our first choice for accommodations. Pet Friendly is one of our highest priorities and this is a fabulous place for Pets. Our check in was a breeze and within 10 minutes we were resting comfortably in our room. The room was exceptionally clean and had a pleasant scent to it as we entered. Everything in the room from microwave to hair dryer functioned perfectly. Great water pressure in the shower and sink. We were able to easily keep the temperature of the to our liking with no hassle from the Heating/AC unit. We had a very comfortable bed and slept well for our entire stay. Love this place, Highly recommended!

Another great stay
October 11, 2017

Stayed for a night again for UB family weekend. This was the third time staying at this hotel, and it was another great stay. I really have never had a bad experience at any Red Roof Inn. Nothing fancy, just clean well kept rooms very close to the University. I always look at other properties just for the heck of it, but for the money you can't really beat this inn. I'm sure we'll be back again next year.

It wasok

We have stayed in RRI in the past so we figured we would be fine staying in this one since we have passed it every time on our trips, and it's on Flint Rd where we normally stay. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't the worst place we've stayed in, but it wasn't the best either. The first two nights were fine but then the light fixture in the bathroom was hanging from the ceiling over our heads in the shower. Luckily it didn't fall off or it would've been lights out lol. But they were nice and switched our room but the 2nd room the refrigerator didn't work. Finally the 3rd room was good and we stayed our last night in there. Overall, they were accommodating to our needs, and they price adjusted for us having to move to another room, I believe $55. So that was nice. The front desk ladies were the nicest of the staff that we encountered. All in all, I would give 3/5 stars.

Great balance price vs.

Great motel, you get more than what you pay for. It is very clean, the staff is friendly and they offer tasty coffee in the mornings. It is a perfect place to be if you are visiting the University of Buffalo.
