Took my baby sister up to college a few weeks back and stayed here. My family and I were looking for a clean place to rest and relax after a long college orientation, nothing fancy, and Red Roof Plus did the job. The Employees were great, the room was clean and equipped with what we needed. Our only concerns were...

This Red Roof was a nice place to stay. I opted for a larger room, it was clean and well maintained. The bed was comfortable. I like the heat system, as it uses radiant heaters. No more noisy and dry air coming from the window units. I was pleased with the value and price, and will stay again in the...

Shameka was very accommodating when my 3rd party travel site was not very helpful. The rooms are spacious and clean, coffee maker, refrigerator and microwave in most rooms, the property is quiet. Would stay again.

We enjoyed this hotel. They had the best room rate in town. They offered free coffee all through the day, but I am not a coffee drinker. The room was quite clean, except for a wet towel behind the restroom. Also, when we arrived to our room with our room key, the door was already open. We checked the room...

Me and my husband stayed here for visiting Niagra Falls, which is like 30 minutes from this hotel. It's nice and affordable.. and worth the price we paid and in short distance for many other things. It also has many food places around within 1 mile or so... so looking for food isn't an issue. Overall, a good stay!

We stayed at this hotel over a weekend, honestly not expecting much for the price we paid. Instead of the dimly lit, small, antiquated room that normally comes with budget hotels, we were pleasantly surprised by the modern and warm environment. Clean, well appointed, and very conveniently located on the ground floor with car parking just outside the room, it...

We stayed at this location just before New Years. We have been here before and we like the great location and quality of the facility for the cost. The rooms were updated a few years back to give them a more modern look. The TVs are flat screen, the mattress was comfortable enough, and the room was quiet to outside...

I have been at the Red Roof Inn in Amherst probably 20 times in the last 10 years and have always felt like I was part of an extended family. Any problems are taken care of on the spot (very seldom do problems exist) and the staff goes out of their way to make me feel comfortable.

We got a fantastic rate at hotel which is why we booked here.

Very basic rooms and very small bathroom that needs an updating. They do leave out...
