This hotel was very convenient for the Ride for Roswell event at UB. It was less than 5 minutes from the event site and I was able to do a late check out without any question. Clean room, quiet, and extra towels provided as requested.

Yet another Red Roof Inn! This one is very well located and in a quiet corner of a busy, tourist area which is Buffalo/Niagara. The cleanliness of the room was excellent and the furniture comfortable. We were here for three nights, as we were visiting Niagara Falls, and we could not have chosen better in the area. A little run...

We stayed here on our way to Toronto. Comfortable rooms, friendly staff. If you are looking for a no frills place to stay, this is a good option. Close to the University at Buffalo North Campus. Nearby restaurants, grocery stores and gas station. Location close to I-290 ramp is also good. Free wifi.

Everyone was very helpful and pleasant at the hotel, from booking rooms over the phone to checking us in. We stayed here during our visit to Niagara falls. This place is 30 mins away from Niagara falls and less than 5 mins from the City proper. The rooms were clean and great for the price we paid. Kudos to the...

I had to stay here last night for a funeral. I had to be at the funeral home before check in so I had called a couple times in the morning checking on that possibility. Lisa at the desk handled my calls wonderfully, doing her best to try and get me in my room early. After a 3 hour drive...
