The Good: -It is located close to the main highway from Florida to Connecticut. -The rooms are standard to any Red Roofs we have stayed at. -The Check-in guy (we arrived late night - after... More

The title pretty much says it all. I arrived to check in and immediately noticed how S L O W things were at the ill equipped front desk. When I say ill equipped, they ran out of staples and change for the register while I was waiting. The front desk clerk had to write an IOU for change owed to... More

Although the hotel was a great location for the Inner Harbor in Baltimore and the Monuments in DC the place and the service was the worst!!! The rooms smelled of mildew.

I booked this because I was driving to Savannah and needed a place to crash for the night. Like another reviewer wrote on other sites some liked this place and others hated it. I felt like I needed to stay dressed in order to sleep. Nothing felt really clean, had that cheap motel feel and smell. Their was also sketchy... More

I love Red Roof Inns -- the outlets on the front of the night stand make it stand out for me. Unfortunately, guests don't respect the No Smoking policy and the rooms smell of smoke and whatever they used to try to cover the smoke smell. There was also a lot of litter in the parking lot. As for wheelchair... More

Nothing fancy, but it was okay. The room was pretty basic. We arrived right at check-in time and were given our three rooms. All three rooms were not ready with the beds still unmade. The housekeeper came and they were ready within 10 minutes. Thin walls and loud TV"s don't make for good neighbors.
