I stay at the Red Roof on a fairly routine basis, whether is business or pleasure. The staff makes the stay more memorable. I have never encountered an unpleasant member of the staff. Edna Lous has become a friend as well as a manager of the facility. I would like to take this time to share with everyone who visits... More

I stay in Red Roofs on a fairly routine basis for long business trips, when looking for a basic and uniform room at a low price. On a rare trip with my family from Houston to New Orleans, we happened to stay one evening at this facility. It was embarrassing to have what quite clearly was a prostitution issue at... More

Very disappointing for a Red Roof. The room was dirty and the neighborhood was not exactly the best in the world. It was a somewhat scary place to walk the dog, although he was quite happy there. At least the bed was comfortable, and the fridge and plumbing all worked properly.

After pulling in and getting settled, we were greeted by the most sweetest guy, Jordan. We asked for our non smoking room, got our keys and were on our way. We got to our room and it smelled horribly like cigarettes that we couldn't bare it. I went back downstairs and Jordan pleasantly gave us another room. Unfortunately the bathroom... More

This hotel is right off of I 10. Their staff is super friendly and professional. They make check in & out quick and easy.
