My husband and I stopped here for just one night from a return trip to South Carolina from Minnesota...the lady at the front desk was very nice and helpful...and Brandee Suu our chocolate lab was welcome...the only thing that I was not happy with was....no military discount and the rooms were kind of small but everything else was great.

For $70 I expect a little more. I would expect some sort of breakfast and a coffee pot in the room, but neither were provided. Room was clean (except for the stick in the corner, still not sure what that was all about) and the lady who checked us in was very nice. The walk ways, stairs and balconies were... More

I stay in RRIs all over, and have been a redicard member since the program began. I have been in RRI's that are truly "newly remodeled' and delightful (especially Naperville IL and Madison WI) but this one doesn't deserve that designation. I stayed here 4 years ago and it is virtually the same, but with 4 years of wear showing.... More

My wife and.I stayed here on a last minute get out of the house get away. With last minute concert tickets in hand we chose a hotel with one consideration, price. Red Roof Inn is not the Hilton, and they don't pass themselves off for it BUT... When we arrived I thought we had entered a trailer park. A lady... More

Our double room, $63.20 for two including tax, was so small that there was only room for one person at a time to pass in front of the bed, but it was fine for one night, the price was certainly right and it had all the amenities, from wifi to a microwave/fridge with the exception of a coffeemaker. The hotel... More

Basic conveniences for a reasonable price. There was a cold spell, but the heating was quite adequate. Service/maintenance a bit spotty: no attempt to plow parking lot and very little snow removal from door entrances. After the first night I returned to my room at 1pm. As it has not yet been done and I wanted to take nap, I... More
