We have been away from home for 4 weeks do to my treatments so this has been our home away from home. Everyone here treats us like a part of their family. Joy and her staff have strived to make sure we are comfortable and met all our needs. Our daughters offered to move us to a Suite hotel and... More

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.

Melinda at check-in was fabulous. The rooms are clean and seem recently renovated. Desk, fridge, microwave and outlets EVERYWHERE! Super easy to charge devices. The towels are fine, the a.c. is good and the Wi-Fi is decent. Would stay again.

The receptionist, Melinda was awesome... First impression of this place is because of her that I knew this stay was going to be great!!! I was offered a no walk in rate... Also, the room was up to date and I could not ask for a relaxing sleep...

Rooms were clean and newly renovated, Mary my cleaning lady was extremely nice and very quick to respond to my requests. The fire pit out back was a great place to relax and meet new people. Ample parking and a very friendly staff. Great stay. See you next year.

I've stayed at this Red Roof Inn many, many times over the years, so you might imagine how surprised I was in April, 2015, to see that many of the rooms had been renovated! They've gone modern-minimalist and replaced the shag carpeting with faux hardwood floors. Much nicer. They haven't done much about the sound-proofing, but you can't have everything... More

my first room reeked of cigarette smoke, but Joy at the front desk was quick to find me a fresh smelling room. The location of the hotel is unfortunate (right between 2 busy streets and not at all quiet), but it is a great hotel if you are traveling with a pet. They are very pet friendly and even welcomed...

While there I felt the staff was doing me a favor. When I then made arrangements at the Red Roof the staff was extremely caring and... More
