This hotel is the best roadside motel we have stayed in, and an even better value for the price. Staff is extremely pleasant and efficient, the entire property is clean and fresh. The basic room is more than comfortable, and their pet policy is great. Wood and tile floors make the room seem very clean especially for pets. The morning... More

The hotel is a beautiful property. It doesn't have parking for large or over-sized vehicles which would have been nice to know ahead of time because we were moving and had a Uhaul with us. It is conveniently located next to restaurants and stores (Target, etc). It does have very clean and nice rooms. It also has an outdoor pool... More

Having a small refrigerator and a microwave is very convenient; they have plenty of power outlets for you to connect all your gadgets. Also, the desk is very practical if you... More

Very good service for the price! It has everything one may need for a pleasant stay, except for breakfast. Hotel clean, friendly staff, good location, close to main restaurants. The hotel is located in a beautiful area close to other hotels, and it's a very convenient area.

Has to be one of the nicest hotel managers that I have ever dealt with. My daughter left her baby doll in the room. Discovered it was missing when we got home. Red Roof inn called me and said they found it, and mail it to us. We will definitely be back.
