Very nice room, good location, Wifi included. While Red Roof Inn prices are higher than the total economy motel offerings on the road, I have found the addition of the free WiFi and the breakfast even out the cost, and the rooms are much better. Rooms here are very nice, but not of the "A Quality" rooms that are available... More

Got there and the bathroom had a very faint smell of cigarette smoke. I mentioned it to the gal working the desk and she moved me to another room without asking. Both rooms were remodeled rooms. I say remodeled but they are more of an updated room with new laminate floor and new paint. They are currently remodeling this motel... More

We pulled in with a crew of 4 adults and 7 kids under 8. I had low expectations for this hotel but they dropped even further when we checked in. You can tell that this hotel has been neglected from quality maintenance and repair for quite a while. Even the normal things that break on a hotel room like the... More

We booked this motel by calling them directly after reading some TripAdvisor reviews. I do not know where these reviewers stayed, because this motel was filthy! The lady that checked us in was very nice and so everything started off fairly well. The only thing was she said she couldn't give us a AARP or AAA discount because they had... More

Thank you for choosing Red Roof Inn Amarillo East. I truly apologize for the inconvenience of the dirty room. Furthermore, i'm truly surprised that the floors were dirty, as we just changed the carpet to hardwood flooring. As for the cables and dirty floors, I am honestly sorry for that, and will take these complaints to the appropriate departments to... More

After staying in a not so pleasant hotel the night before, on a cross country trip, my daughter and I stayed at the Red Roof hotel and were very pleased with our stay. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, hardwood floors, and clean bathroom. Hotel staff friendly. Overall a great stay and good night sleep.

We reserved a room at this location bc they had one of the highest ratings i had seen for rri. The amount of stars they have online say nothing for the actual quality of the hotel. They first did not have the room we wanted. They gave us a key to another room, which did not even open. Could not... More
