We stayed here over the summer while working in the area. The main issues are the unsafe neighborhood, there were random people milling around in the parking lot and hallways who werent guests, and the staff's unwillingness to treat customers with care and respect. My family spent more than 10,000 dollars in Red Roof hotels in the past 2 years... More

Clean, spacious rooms by the convenient area of shopping. Super hot shower, and the fridge was really cold. Jafonda was a great help, speedy check in and assisted with my AARP discount, not to mention beautiful. Over all 5 star stay.

Bed was comfortable with nice linens. Room towels were a little thin, but in good condition. Cable channels were adequate - would have loved to have TCM. Grounds were... More
