I spent one night at this property in October 2014. The room was clean, (though it could have used a bit of updating), and the staff were attentive and helpful. I did run into a problem in that there were no towels in my room, but this issue was quickly and professionally handled. There are multiple restaurants within walking distance... More

The first room I had checked in, found hair on the sheet by the pillows and bathroom stucco was peeling off the walls. The front desk person was accommodating in moving me to another room. Upon inspecting the second room, I could not believe how bad the ceiling was peeling. It appears this hotel was renovated, but the stucco application... More

The room was clean and recently updated with faux hardwood floor and sleek looking furniture. There was ample surface space in the desk and dresser. The bed was comfortable and there was adequate sound-proofing. I would recommend this hotel over many others.

This hotel was the worst hotel I've ever set foot in. The front desk person was friendly when I checked in, but that's about the only positive thing I have to say. When we pulled into our parking spot, some guests on the second floor balcony were setting off fireworks which then landed on a car next to us. We... More

This Red Roof Inn was very accommodating to our group. Yes there was room for improvement in the rooms them selves (old stained chair and carpet… slow draining shower) but with that being said we showed up with a rather large group needing 5 rooms. They let us check in very early (like 11 am) and didn’t charge us anything... More

This hotel gets high marks because of the room set up and the manager, but there is room for improvement. My room had numerous, easily accessible wall plugs, strong, reliable free internet, desk with decent chair, new flat screen tv with upgraded cable package, fridge, good quality micro-wave, faux hardwood floors, granite counter in the bathroom and a comfortable bed...

We stayed at the RRI after a day at Michigan's Adventure. The rate we got was pretty good, and the rooms were clean and comfortable. There were basic amenities like fridge and microwave in the room, but no iron or board. Tired and in need of a good night's sleep, this was perfect. My aunt roomed a few doors down... More

FIRST IMPRESSION: The office looked great in the pictures and when you see it driving into the property-- But don't let that deceive you! The rest of the property was very poorly taken care of. There were landscaping bricks out of place like they were just thrown on the ground outside our room. Cigarette butts cluttered the ground. The company... More

Clean room - no carpets - great idea!! The paint had some peeling problems in the bathroom, but for $77, I really can't complain a lot. Room was quiet, bed was comfortable and I had a good sleep. The front desk clerk was very friendly.
