Surprisingly good accomodations for the price. For 50$ I expect an old room that smells like cigarettes, or maybe meet the junkie in the room next door. This room was clean, and new. Like others have said, it's good, not great but great value none the less. I don't usually write reviews, but I was impressed. Staff was friendly, and... More

Thank you for choosing Red Roof Inn Amarillo for your Red Roof Inn stay. I'm glad you enjoyed the room and service and cleanliness. As for the breakfast, I apologize that it was not of your taste. However, not all Red Roof Inns even offer breakfast to their customers. Regardless, our location is to the advantage of the customers in... More

I stayed at the Red Roof Inn Amarillo for an extended amount of time. I found the staff to be very helpful and the property to be exactly as advertised. The management team showed a genuine interest making my stay a pleasant experience. Staff and management alike seemed to connect quite well with all guests.

I resided at the Red Roof Inn for an extended time and during my stay I was very satisfied with the staff. I continue to stay at Red Roof Inn when I am in town visiting relatives. Red Roof Inn in Amarillo, TX is like my second home.

We got a great price for this place so we stayed there. It was okay. Fairly clean. Breakfast was blah. On our 2nd day we passed it up and went to Cracker Barrel. That wound up costing us so much that we simply could have stayed at a better hotel with a good breakfast and not gone out to eat... More

I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience that you faced. We offer a full free breakfast including waffles, biscuits and gravy, hot and cold cereal, mini donuts, muffins, coffee, juice, milk, and toast among other things. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy that, but there were also additional options around the property that definitely would not have broken your budge. I hope... More

I picked this hotel based on internet reviews, and was very happy that I did. We were completely pleased with our stay. Our room was very clean and smelled quite nice which is rarely the case in hotels that allow pets. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The room was comfortable and everything worked properly. Also, the hotel was... More

My wife and I stayed there for 2 nights in September 2014 and had no complaints. Don't let the bad ratings of some naggers fool you. The place is ok. Clean and not too pricey. Not the dingy, dark, dirty and sketchy location one of the reviewers mentioned (maybe he stayed somewhere else?). Friendly welcome by the employees at the... More

Okay- the rate was high for what I got- a truck stop. Trucks idleing behind the hotel all night- which is where they put me. I just needed a fridge, microwave and non-smoking room. When I inquired about the noise- they said that the trucks would be coming and going all night. When I searched satellite view on Google maps... More

Reviews seems OK on TA but the place is sketchy , old with the carpet not very clean. The free internet does not connect and on reading the reviews seems to be the standard grip from the reviewers. You get worse than a budget hotel.

Nice room, clean and comfortable, kind staff. I'm doing route 66, and this hotel was one of the best I' ve stayed. The front desk called me to know if everything was ok, the kind of thing that make a difference.

Not too bad for the price. Pillows/bed were very comfortable. The ac works great. The carpet was very gross and we did not feel comfortable putting our belongings on the floor. Other than that this is a pretty good place to stay and would consider staying here again

Thank you for choosing Red Roof Inn Amarillo for your stay. I am glad you liked our rooms, and what they had to offer. As for the carpet, we have shampoo-ed them to resolve the problem. I hope you'll consider us again when passing through. Thank you, General Manager More
