The staff was nice that's the only good thing I can say about this motel. The room was disgusting, I slept in my clothes because I was afraid I would catch something, the bathroom was nasty and the sink wouldn't drain. Not a safe area either.

For starters, we used to stay at Red Roof Inn exclusively whenever we traveled. It used to be the "higher end" budget friendly chain. Sadly, the company has switched from mostly "corporate" locations to mostly "franchised" locations, resulting in a severe decline in service and cleanliness! We hardly ever stay at this chain anymore and this stay confirmed that for... More

The towels and sheets are worn, however clean. bathroom was spotless, tiled walls and floor had NO mold. Note in the way out of town on 40 west we... More

I read many of the other very complimentary reviews, and they were right on the button. The rooms were very clean, the staff extremely courteous, and the breakfast was great. I drive through Amarillo a couple of times a year and I would definitely stay here again.

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.

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.

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
