We stayed here on May 22-24 2015. I've stayed at other Red Roof Inns before- but they were always better. Had a "Superior" room- at least that's what they called it. It smelled like dogs. The room was very dusty, the sink was cracked around the drain, the soap dish was falling off the shower, and I had to fix... More

Very disappointed in the hotel. The smell of old cigarette smell was overwhelming had to hold my breath going down the hallways due to the smoke. There were no clocks in the rooms Beds where hard and pillows not fluffy. Disappointed all around would not stay there again. Rooms were clean except for the smoke smell

You get what you pay for. Room was clean and staff was nice. Overflowing trash in hallways. Dog pee (or was it human pee?) on the hall carpet. Cigarette burns on the toilet seat. No iron or ironing board in room. No hairdryer in room.

We stay at Red Roofs on a regular basis as we like to take our labs with us. This was probably the most basic/sparse room we have ever stayed in. It was clean, quiet, spacious and it had what we needed though. No pictures on the walls and no clock in the room.

Rooms recently upgraded (wood floors, room paint, furnishings). Plans for upgrading bath fixtures this spring. Clean, comfortable, extremely pet-friendly. Good location. Coffee available...no real continental breakfast. Customer service personnel (especially Stephan at the front desk) were exceptionally sensitive. We reported a safely concern with a slippery surface on the shower and before the day was over anti-skid strips were added... More

Honestly the room could use some updates and the shower had moldy caulking and not enough water pressure. Smelled like someone had been smoking in there for sure. Also I did not feel safe walking out to my car without my husband when we realized my phone fell out of my purse after dinner. The parking lot wasn't well lit... More

I'm glad to hear that we were able to retrieve your iPad that was left behind. We are an excellent value for our location. It's true that there are other options in the area for close to double the price. Our value comes from providing a clean, comfortable and affordable place to stay, via our award-winning bedding, free WiFi and... More

Last year we stayed at the Red Roof because of an ice storm, so we could be close to work. They had just remodeled and everything was clean, working, smelled good. This year we stayed for the same reason. We were in the same building. The first thing we noticed was the over powering smell of pot! The hallway was... More

As my family and I were traveling to visit the Cary area we thought we had reservations at the Best Western Cary Inn. When we arrived there that the night staff had told us that our reservation was cancelled because we never held the room with a credit card. This was not true!!! I booked the room and gave my...

The location is great close to shopping, eateries and I-40. The rooms were spacious and reasonable. This is a pet friendly hotel. The downside is the outside lock to the door was broken so anyone can enter the building. The hotel was aware of this issue. On the second day no one cleaned the room so we had no clean... More

Pleased by the cleanliness and the location. Able to walk over to Red Lobster for dinner one night and then Olive Garden the next night. I know there was also shopping places, but that's not my thing. The rooms are more basic, but the condition and cleanliness were great. The employees I had contact with were very helpful. I'll be...
