Newly renovated clean rooms! Love the wood like floors rather than the usual gross dirty carpets in most hotel rooms. Bed was fine and bathroom was modern and clean. No breakfast but there was a coffee service. Easy access to highway.

On our travels to Florida for a month the Red Roof Inn was our final overnight before reaching our destination. We had travelled a very long day and in all honesty stopped at the Comfort Inn next door, basically because we are club members. At this particular spot I was met with a very " Nasty" sorry, young lady. After... More

The staff was very professional and courteous upon check-in. The room was very clean and comfortable. The mattress was firm and provided a good nights sleep. A continental breakfast would be a nice addition. I would stay here again.

Our arrival coincided with a loss of wifi in parts of the hotel and the lady on reception was trying to sort this out as we entered reception. We were concerned about the lack of connection as we use it extensively. Once we arrived in our room reception called us to check that we were happy with the room and... More

What makes this hotel average is that there is no in room coffee machine although coffee is available 24/7 in the lobby. For the price charged there should have been at least a minimal breakfast buffet...coffee, juices, breads and bagels for toasting, jellies, etc. On the plus side is the cleanliness of the room, comfortable beds and fast free internet...

This hotel is fine, but has no amenities. No breakfast, no microwave, fridge or coffeemaker, no hot tub and no heated pool. It is absolutely fine if you want a place to crash for the night, but if you want to hang out and relax at all, I suggest you pay a few bucks more and go elsewhere. I would... More

I stayed at the Red Roof hotel for a few days. It was perfect in every way. I felt comfortable and it was clean! The staff was very friendly and hospitable and I have to say the coffee was on point! I would stay there again and again!
