The Red Roof is ideal if you have a dog and conveniently located off the Interstate. However, you pay for what you get. There is no breakfast or extras but there is free wi-fi .Room was just ok and bathroom had mold -not good. There are probably better places to stay

There were some younger people hanging around outside. I wonder, if they all were just not ready to go into their rooms. So, I must say: the atmosphere was not so good, at least in my eyes. But I don't know if that was just a coincidence. Otherwise I must say: For 40.99 plus tax it was a good deal,... More

Front desk employee Edna Lewis is, by far, the embodiment of southern hospitality. I stay at this motel twice a year and Miss Lewis always remembers my name and goes out of her way to assist me. If you stay at this location, you will not only be treated to a great, inexpensive motel, you will meet the nicest person... More

Just off I-10, this spot is a good place to rest and rewind. The only negative is the only restaurant close is Cracker Barrel. Room rates are very reasonable.We stop here on every trip from Florida to Texas-- going both ways.

Everyone was friendly. The check in staff was very accommodating to our special requirements: Ground floor, parking a 25' trailer in sight of room, with a pet. My husband is mobility challenged and the trailer and pet make it more difficult to assign us a room. She was great and made it happen. With a smile The day staff was... More

After being greeted by the stench of confined tobacco smoke and a German cockroach crossing the two teensy pillows allotted for the king bed, I was startled by the repetitive beep of a smoke alarm which I eventually located in a drawer, but not before spotting several assorted bug carcasses including a big one smashed all over the wall. The... More

After my husband's and I went through trouble with a different hotel the night before we got a fast room here. Everything is great.rooms clean and nice clean and big dog area with a bench for my dog. Only problem so far is they are cleaning the pipes so no hot water at the moment. Other than that I'm satisfied.
