We stayed here early 2014. Booked online as I booked our other hotel 1 night short of what we really needed. We have never stayed at a Red Roof Inn before so I totally rolled the dice. Major loss on our part! Will never, ever stay at a Red Roof Inn again! Shabby, run down and very worn hotel. Rooms... More

Just a stop over for one night, HORRIBLE!! The carpet and chairs in the room were filthy, the bed was broke, the heat/air didn't work right. One of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in. This place shouldn't even be open. Either renovate or shut it down. Cigarette burns on the bathtub and the tub was stained black. The... More

The staff very nice. The only issue we had is that one of he rooms we stayed in had cigarette burns in... More

I have stayed at dozens of different Red Roof Inns in the US in the last two decades but this was by far the worst. Most Red Roofs have been upgraded but not this one. This room is from the 1990s-- or earlier. It also needs a good cleaning. On top of that, my daughter called the hotel to talk... More

This place is an absolute DUMP!!!! Front desk and housekeeping, and management don't seem to communicate, as one couple checking in ahead of me were given a room that was already occupied. Also, they seem to have a resident who has been living there for over two year, which the staff told us about, like they were proud!. We didn't... More

The staff is just this side of not caring when we arrived in the evening for 5-days and I had booked two rooms. I always check them out before I move my stuff in. The first room smelled like cat pee, the second like cigarette smoke. They were kind enough to upgrade me to a room with less cigarette smell,... More

We was given RM.223 that had dead bugs on the bed. We were transferred to RM.141, I couldn't sleep all night for fighting tiny bugs that were flying. The... More

I have stayed in many hotels. The best will always be the Embassy, the worst..this Red Roof Inn I am in now. The location is great. Everything you need is nearby.
