"Extended Stay" Guests were hanging out in the lobby. Hallway to our room smelled of urine. Changed rooms due to cable not working. Room was clean and smoke free but smelled a strong odor of "weed" from the hallway. Kids were playing on the elevator and running down the hallway with no parental supervision. We had to call for an... More

I've stayed in another Red Roof Inn before, and couldn't believe that this was the same hotel chain. Upon arrival, there were people outside arguing, blasting music on their phones, and smoking cigarettes right next to the door. My room smelled like old cigarettes and pot (although the place is supposed to be smoke free)The pool was old and filthy,... More

Worst experience I've had in last years. The room smells bad, has bugs and small cockroaches. Regrettably, the room has cracks in the window, I took pictures. It looks dirt aisles and walls. it is horrible. I would like my money back, because I arrived 11pm and 2am I had to leave because of the bugs that were biting me.

I had to stay at this place because all hotels in the Miami and nearby areas were gouging rates due to miami's Ultra Music Festival. It was very far from Miami but needed a place to sleep before flying out the next morning. The price was more than I would pay for that kind of accommodation but less than the... More

To be so far from home, and to be so disappointed with nowhere else to go was very frustrating. The hotel was not clean, had a bad mold smell, the tub was so gross we wore our flip flops to shower. The first 24 hours there was no hot water. We had to call the desk to find out what... More

Save your peace of mind! Keep your health! And go someplace else! My husband and I had to layover in Ft.Lauderdale from Connecticut before continuing to the Keys. The hotel had just designated themselves a no smoking facility, but even the no smoking rooms stank of old cigarette smoke. While it was late January, the a/c was still needed to... More

This was a horrifying experience. The rooms were dirty and the majority of the "guests" were living there courtesy of section 8 housing! Need I say more. Some were prostitutes. One tried to lick my husband. It was the worst place I've ever stayed. I have stayed at a Red Roof on Long Island, NY and it was a totally... More

I don't expect a lot from Red Roof but this was well below their standards. Loose doors, unclean floors, and a general state of disrepair are the norm. The best I can say about this hotel is that it looks best from the outside (in fact outside is quite nice) through a rear view mirror.
