I'd like to rate this higher because the staff was friendly and the price was decent compared to other hotels in the area. However, this hotel is feeling a little worn for the new Red Roof Inn rooms. It did the job, and wasn't dirty or unsafe, it just wasn't great either.

My mom and I reserved a two night stay. We bought a puppy from a local breeder so we needed accommodations that accepted pets. The room set up was perfect. The staff and the other guests that we met were really nice. Met some truly lovely people. A special thank you to Michelle who worked the evening shift. She was... More

First stay at a Red Roof Inn. Rooms were average size, but bathroom was very small. Room was clean and I would say not a bad value for the cost. Location was ok with several places to eat close by. Overall, a decent place to get some rest.

We felt safe in this hotel; the staff was very friendly. It's about 10 minutes from downtown Akron but very close to any chain restaurants or stores you might want to stop at. I guess I would have liked a fridge in the room and some extra blankets, but other than that it was fine for 2 nights.

The room was clean, but furnished very sparingly. Items that most hotels provide at this price point were not available here, such as a small coffee maker and hairdryer (you had to pay for the plus package to get this). The towels were very coarse (again, you had to pay for the plus package to get soft towels). Without a... More

Made a quick visit on short notice. Found the room to be clean and comfortable. I had a standard king that was small, but adequate. If you just need a clean room with a bed and a bathroom, this will work just fine. Was disappointed that the desk clerk was not aware of El Fogon Mexican Restaurant when I asked... More

We booked Red Roof Inn, Akron, OH as a mid-point stop over between our home in Upstate NY and Lexington, KY. We arrived about 12:30 am and were quickly checked in and given directions to our room. We found the room clean and comfortable. We were traveling with our dog Gus and liked the fact that RRI was pet friendly.

I had a late check-in and the gal at the front desk was friendly and helpful. She sent me to the very last room on the first floor, and told me to look at the window before entering. "You should be able to see into the room. If the drapes are closed, come back." The room was thankfully unoccupied, and... More

Stayed here on our way to Amish country. Room was nice and clean, liked the laminate flooring instead of carpet. Just a basic room, price was good. Unfortunately, some people in the parking lot were loud and beeping their horns during the night.

We decided to stop in Akron on a cross country trip. The reviews were accurate, it has a new remodel in the rooms and a great value. The rooms were clean, the outside was not, several cigarette butts on the balcony, the rooms had laminate flooring which will help with the typical musty smells, there were several restaurants close by....
