Stayed here (in three different rooms) due to my lack of pre-planning and being unaware that there was a Baptist convention in town at the same time! The staff was great, the weather was rainy -- but everything was good! I liked each of my rooms in this upgraded facility. Each room was clean and well-maintained.

The manager and staff at the Red Roof Inn were all attentive and gracious. All rooms were recently refurbished and very nice. Morning coffee in the lobby and McDonalds an easy walk away. We are staying again in August for our puppy's recheck with the cardiologist.

That place was a NIGHTMARE, Very Rude Housekeeping Staff, Office hours from 11am-7pm, guests banging on our door at almost 2am, No Ice, No clock,... More

This facility was close to The James, was clean, close to restaurants and a grocery store. I would definitely recommend this facility and we will be utilizing this facility in the future. Bed was the most comfortable I have ever had in a motel. Excellent staff - very helpful and very caring!!

The room was clean..however it smelt of stale cigarettes. The shampoo and conditioner is awful, do yourself a favor and get a cheap bottle at a store near by. Be warned in the morning the cleaning people come around super early to clean and their carts are LOUD. If you have a baby or small child, they will be startled... More

After a nightmare of a stay at a Motel6 a few nights earlier my husband and I had our fingers crossed when we booked with Red Roof Plus. When we opened our door we were thrilled!

Pam was excellent and a great front desk clerk - I wish other hotels had such a great front of house ambassador to represent them. My only complaint is housekeeping smoking in areas where guests walk. I do hope the hotel decides to make the staff non smoking since it's a smoke free facility.
