simple rooms with bathroom and not much else.Limited towels , No coffee maker, hair dryer or even an Iron. Was going to stay for four nights but checked after one. The mattress was so bad that I woke up with extreme pain on my back. The location is fine and that's about all this place is good for.

Our first stay at a Red Roof Inn - perfect! The room was exactly as shown in the hotel's photos - bright, cheerful, clean and quiet. The rooms have a small fridge and microwave. All staff were courteous and ready to please. The location is about ten miles from Niagara Falls, and about 15 miles from downtown Buffalo and Canada....

First off let me say the hotel's room was very clean and nicely decorated. However you should know there are three choices of "value". The standard choice, which is the least expensive, does not include a hair dryer, iron/ironing board, coffeepot, microwave or refrigerator. To get these in your room, you need to choose the more expensive "deluxe" rooms. There...
