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

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

Thank you for choosing Red Roof Inn Amarillo. I'm truly apologize for the inconveniences that you had. However, I do not agree with all that you have written. Franchise and corporate hotels are viewed equally in the lodging industry; it is a business for a reason, and all hotels have to comply to the same rules and regulations regardless. As... 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

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.
