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

Me and my BFF was here during Black Expo weekend. Didn't realize this was the weekend for the event. We was here visiting friends. The desk clerk(older lady) was not pleasant. 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. But this hotel must be easily 30 years old and needs updating BADLY. The moldy, stale, wet smell when we first got in the room took our breath away.... More

We just recently stayed at the red roof inn, and it was ok for the price. My grandma stated she stayed here in the early 90s and not much has changed. The bathroom fan was loud and obnoxiously annoying. The bathtub was buckled up and the shower was hardly hot (had all the way up). The TV was older but... More

Only after unpacking did I learn the WiFi was down. It remained down for the 14 hours I was checked in. The front desk was unconcerned and seemed annoyed when I asked when it would be back up. Door to lobby was always locked. Not a comforting sign.

Stayed at this hotel last night and it could be worse. If your just looking for a moderately clean place to crash then this should fit the bill. The location is really convenient to downtown and I-465 with restaurants and shopping nearby. The hotel itself is in desperate need of updating. I've recently stayed in many of the newly renovated...

Thank you for posting a review on TripAdvisor. We are aware that the property needs a renovation but we do offer clean rooms for our guests. The property does normally operate out of a full lobby during the day and I am sorry it made you feel uncomfortable that the lobby was closed during your stay. We do try very... More

This was my third stay at this Red Roof Inn. It is in need of some serious maintenance. The Parking lot is little better than a gravel road, actually, a gravel road would be much better. The pot holes are very bad, and when the water in them freezes-watch your step! Run off from melting snow was collecting everywhere in... More

Honestly, I bought this first because it was very cheap ($38/ night). I needed to come early and they helped me, Then they worked with me because I needed to leave early. Great helpful management. I'll stay again for sure.

Nice room, clean, no problems, no fridge or microwave in my room, tv worked good, cable+ 2hbo's, and ppv. Pet friendly but still nice. Book online though to save money. "Room service" is available from 10:45am- till like 9-11pm (unsure exact time). Total was like 48$ on a Thursday night.
