We stayed for one night and were not in the room much. Usually if I pay more than $70 for a hotel room we get some kind of breakfast. I did like the modern decor of the room. Also liked that the sink is outside of the bathroom so it is easier for a family to get ready. There was... More

I'm shocked at how expensive hotels in Akron were. We spent one night here to fly out of Akron to save some money on air fare. Hotel was convenient to the airport. The young lady on the night shift was friendly, efficient, and juggled three guests who needed towels and pillows, bringing them to the room and managing the front... More

I was looking for a nice and affordable room for the night, all of the local hotels were booked, and my wife is very picky when it comes to hotels rooms.

This Red Roof was a fine place to stay, but there were NO extras. No pool, no breakfast, no extra towels. It was clean enough, and a decent place to rest after a long day at the ball fields. The price was reasonable when compared to other hotels in the area.

My husband and I decided to travel to Michigan from Georgia to visit his sister. After so many hours on the road we decided to give it a rest.
