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.

The paint was peeling in the bathroom and on the ceiling of the main room. It was only after I contacted Customer service that I... More

I got stranded due to flight cancelation. Dirty. No phone. Poor service. They cancelled an early morning shuttle to the airport with out telling me. Smelled like smoke despite it being no smoking room. Terrible

We stopped here for one night on the way through town. The Room they gave us was probably a previous smoking room. It's been recently renovated but the carpet was stained and so was the bedding. The shower flooded the bathroom floor. The staff was very friendly. Area appeared safe with lots of restaurants and shopping. Appeared to have been... More

Thank you for your review! I am sorry that your room had previously been smoked in, as that is not a pleasant smell for anyone. I have recently purchased a product that eliminates odors such as these, to remove any unwanted scents. I also do apologize for any stains you saw on both the bedding and carpet as I will... More

I stayed here last week. The staff was friendly, location is convenient to shopping and eating. My room was clean, bed was comfortable. They were doing some renovations on the sidewalk outside of my door, including new concrete, this was a slight inconvenience. Also compared to other hotels in the area their channel selection is a bit lacking in my... More

Red Roof got the essentials right. Upgraded modern furniture in the king offiice room. Flat screen,fridge,micro wave and square sink on top of storage counter top. Actually I was surprised and impressed. Plan to book here again for pleasure trips to visit friends. Hope prices don't increase. No breakfast but 20% off at IHOP with room card was great, oh... More
