Everything was clean and the price is great for just outside of downtown Buffalo! Check in great, check out easy. Had everything we needed for a two night stay including a refrigerator and microwave, safe, and coffee maker.

Good location for shopping trip. Room is basic. No coffee maker or hairdryer. Coffee available at reception area. The price was good at about $68 Cdn including taxes. Would not book again if price was higher than that.

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!

Been coming to this property for >3 yrs now. David M has been at the front desk almost every time I've checked in. He remembers me and has put me in great rooms. I travel a lot and pay my own expenses and this Red Roof is a great value.
