The Champaign Red Roof is being completely re-done. There are about 16 rooms (as of June 27, 2014) that are redone to the new RR standard (the schedule is to be completed by Nov 2014). If you can get one of those locked-in, then it will be a good stay here. Otherwise, don't bother. The rooms are old, not real... More

I arrived on a Sunday evening around 7 and the place looked closed. Not a car in sight except one rust bucket on the far side that looked abandoned. Lobby smelled of mildew and smoke. Stucco outside was crumbling. Wood steps were very worn. The nonsmoking room smelled very smoky, musty and mildewy. Carpet was stained and the toilet ran.... More

Business is usually slower on Sunday evenings. We have placed signs throughout the hotel telling our guests about the renovation, however I can see how the process of... More

Unable to find other hotels in the area for an extended stay over a weekend that included the Illinois marathon, I ended up by default at Red Roof Inn - Champaign. It is in the process of being remodeled, and we all know how that can be for a business from our own personal remodeling headaches. But remodeling does not... More

The Red Roof Inn in Champaign is okay. It is old and the front desk area could use some updating but the staff were very nice. My room was clean which is most important. I have stayed in some very nice hotels so I can compare. One problem was that they said they had blow dryers but I had to... More

We spent one night at this Red Roof Inn and it was probably the worst motel I have ever been in. The first room they gave us REEKED of cigarette smoke so we asked for a change. Of course they would accomodate us for an additional $12. The second room smelled like fish from a Chinese buffet. The sheets were... More

First, the office smelled like an ashtray. The room itself was supposed to be non-smoking, but also smelled like an ashtray. It did not appear that the room had been cleaned in a month. The carpet was filthy and stained. The bathroom was revolting, with mold growing. Towels were old and stained. Sheets were old and stained. There was a... More

It's an old rri what do I expect right? Plus dogs in the rooms to either side of me. The bed covers looked like excremental fluids. Really they did. Terrible. Punks hanging out in lobby on arrival. Talked to front desk about the barking dogs. She shrugged her shoulders this place was a pig sty.
