Wanted a reasonable room close by Niagara Falls. Traveling with an extended family and took 3 rooms. All of us had a good sleep. Mission accomplished. It was about a 20 minute ride to the Falls and plenty of nearby options for breakfast.

We had another nice weekend at the Red Roof Amherst! Always a pleasure dealing with both Shawn and David! There are nice restaurants close by and always great shopping! Santoros across the road is a great place on the weekend, both sports bar and live music! We will be back!

I was in buffalo for a weekend visiting family and stayed here as it was pet friendly, and they don't charge a pet fee!!! I had the superior king room which included a microwave and fridge and in-room coffee. The room was clean and cozy. The manager Shawn was great, I'll definitely be back!
