I reserved a one stay at the RRI in Durham, NC on 1/31/2015 through TripAdvisor because it had a 4 star rating. When we arrived there were a few police cars and yellow tape across the doors of the front entrance. As we waited, I called the name to see what had happened and if I perhaps may be refunded...

This was the last night of my road trip so I was ready to get home. This Red Roof Inn was in the right location. I chose the standard room since it's a bit cheaper. The basic room amenities were fine and comfortingly familiar since I'd stayed in several other Red Roof Inns that were similar. The bed was comfortable,... More

I was looking for a place to stay close to the Durham Performing Arts Center and this fit the bill. I was on the third floor. The room looked almost brand-new, very clean, no bad smells. It was a little bare bones with no shampoo or conditioner or hair dryer in the room, no refrigerator or microwave, but the front... More

We had never stayed at a Red Roof Inn, but after reading the good reviews, we decided to give this place a try. I'm glad we did! We were just passing through and needed place to sleep for the night. The man at the reception desk was very friendly despite the late hour :-) This hotel was clean, comfortable, safe,... More

Can't beat the price, the rooms are clean looking mostly because they have replaced the carpet with laminated wood floors. First room given to me smelled like cigarette even though I requested a non smoking one. The second didn't smell as bad but there was a lingering smoke smell and since it was the only one left I didn't have... More

Read the reviews and sounded like a decent enough place since we were just staying overnight. No complaint about the room, it was ok for the price. But the place was overrun with construction workers. We were on the 1st floor and started hearing this noise coming from upstairs. Sounded like someone was throwing pebbles on the floor every couple... More

This hotel, in my opinion, is worth staying at if you are not looking for all the "bells and whistles" of some of the other hotels. The price was very reasonable and the room was very clean. I liked the idea of the "wood" floors. All the rooms are smoke free which is appreciated even though I am a smoker... More

We had an excellent stay at this Red Roof Inn on my husband's and my "daycation" getaway! Check in was quick, easy, and informative. The room was immaculate, and the recent remodel to a more modern, eclectic feel was a plus. I liked the designated smoking area, even as a smoker, it was nice not to have to subject others... More

I selected this property primarily based on the location and the reasonable room rate. But I was pleasantly surprised by the well-appointed room, the friendly staff, and relaxing comfort this Red Roof Inn provided. Don't let the outside of this property fool you; it is only modest in appearance. The real treat is the actual rooms and the wonderful staff... More
