Stayed one night here and was pleasantly surprised, overall. I got AAA discount and didn't really expect much at this price point. The negatives were battery latch on back of tv remote was broken. Also the vanity light must have been on its way out because it flickered like a strobe light, which was beyond annoying. I could never pick... More

If it hadn't been so late (2am) would have looked elsewhere. Bug on ceiling, looked like a roach. Huge mold stain in bathroom over tub/shower that had been attempted to hide with kilz/paint. Stained tub. Heat was a joke! Infrared heat strips near ceiling did nothing to warm the room and beds had one thin sheet and a thin coverlet.... More

My apartment bathroom had a plumbing problem so my landlord put me up in the Red Roof Inn in south Lexington, KY, for a couple days. The TV was large and nice (flat screen), so I watched lots of cable tv. Also the location was great, McD's and Red Lobster both within easy walking distance, as well as K-mart being... More

Room was clean and well kept but the internet never worked the entire time I was there. Was told first night by clerk there was nothing she could do and I should call the number in the room for their internet provider.

Disgusting, dirty, small, dysfunctional, overpriced, outdated, smelly, uncomfortable. I only rated ot one because there was nothing lower. Absolutely horrible. Beds are small. No appliances in the double rooms, only in king. $40 a night quality that is charging $100. There's no breakfast no pool, no shuttle, absolutely nothing to justify charging $100. The free wifi won't even run google... More

First room was dirty including left over bath towel on hook behind door but they changed it with no problems. The best thing about the hotel was that the location was very convenient for us.

I'm generally a tolerant traveler, but this was one of the worst experiences I've had. The room was filthy - the floor obviously hadn't been vacuumed in a long time, the bathtub was dirty, there were bits of trash around the room, and the garbage can hadn't been emptied - there was a condom wrapper in it. When I pulled... More

I booked a handicapped room via the Red Roof website, and like my stay in Nashville the previous evening, it allocated a regular room. I didn't notice until I got to the room, and I was given another room. Upon entering that, it was just another regular room. Being on crutches, it really is a pain to have to do... More
