I chose this property due to being reasonably priced, overall Tripadvisor reviews and proximity to Grandma's during Christmas. This property is aging (which unfortunately we were informed that this location was to be demolished after the New Year 2015) and replaced with another hospitality company. But overall it was clean, neat and offered all of the basic amenities that are... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for staying with reroof inn and posting a review. We have been rated the best economy hotel in lake city for last 4 years. It is sad to inform that the hotel is closing permanently, but we are also happy that it is making way for a new extended stay hotel opening in 2016. We hope... More

We stayed last week with a small dog. The staff was very good and nice to us. The room OK, some corners need more vacuuming and the bath floor could have been cleaner. The bed was clean with fresh linen. But all in all a nice, quiet stay. Good free WiFi. Overnight stay of one night so I could make... More

Decided to stop here so we could get an early start and reach St. Petersburg while it was still morning. We requested a room on the first floor so we could park right outside and not have to unload a lot of stuff. The room was nice and clean with a microwave and fridge. Comfortable and quiet. Nice hot shower.... More

Great little hotel. The staff went above and beyond their duties. The rooms were great.. they were clean, they had no odor to them and the beds are very comfortable. As I was checking out I learned that the hotel was getting torn down and a new one is going up in its place. Sad to hear that due to... More

Chose this hotel because they allow our four-legged family member to stay with us. The location was easy to find - right off Hwy90. We asked for and received a ground room floor, makes it so much easier for taking out the dog. The room was clean with microwave and fridge as a bonus! Lots of restaurants close by and... More

Although motel is older and you can tell, for the price-- we thought it to be really good value. located next to more expensive hotels, this is less expensive alternative. rooms were actually quite spacious. night clerk was super friendly and helpful. the stairs closest to our room was out so we had a longer trek. rooms adjoined so great...

We asked for a room on the 1st floor because we were with our dog. They placed us close to the back of the hotel on the 1st floor, which was perfect. The grounds here were great. The room smelled musty. At checkout, when asked about our stay, my husband casually mentioned the musty smell, and we were given a... More

Room was in need of some tender loving care. Stains on rug and chair. Looked well used but appeared to be clean. Close to the interstate. Wi-Fi worked fine. Quiet considering proximity to I75. Hotel could use a makeover.

My husband, baby, and dog stayed here for one night. My mom warned me against Red Roof's because she is a Hampton fan. However, we cannot afford such luxuries. We took the chance. We were very pleasantly surprised in the quality and cleanliness of the room. This Red Roof gives other Red Roofs a good name. I would certainly recommend... More
