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

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...
