This is the most disgusting hotel I've ever seen! We were traveling east and I've always trusted the Red Roof name. It's an old, rundown hotel, and the weeds outside should've been our first clue. The first room was horrible, peeled and MOLDED wallpaper. The walk to try a second room revealed water damage, carpet stains, a hallway phone torn... More

This franchised poor excuse for a motel is nowhere near worthy of the Red Roof name. I travel frequently and Red Roofs are usually my motel of choice, because they are pet friendly, clean and of a decent standard of overall quality while still being affordable. A former Holiday Inn, then several other incarnations including Red Roof, Travel Lodge and... More

Hard to decide where to begin.....The nightmare started with what should have been a routine check in at any hotel It took the desk clerk 23 minutes to check me in, He kept complaining about the computer, not sure if it really was the computer or just him. The property is very old and wasnt originally built as a Red... More

I booked three rooms at the Carlisle Red Roof Inn 10 months in advance of my son's college graduation through the Red Roof Inn website. In the interim, that particular Inn was sold to someone else. No one contacted us to tell us that our reservation was no longer valid. I found this out four days before graduation because I... More

Don't even stop here, this in no longer part of the Red Roof chain. We had booked 2 weeks before they switched over and were not notified by the hotel or Red Roof. When we arrived there was no heat in the lobby, the restaurant was closed, they only would take cash. Terrible, Terrible, Terrible

The whole stay here was beyond bad. They lost our reservation yet the desk clerk gave us a hard time as if it were our fault. It is need of many upgrades not only to the façade and landscaping but to the entire building itself. The whole place smelled damp and musty. They advertised a continental breakfast and the clerk...

Just stay somewhere else ... don't waste your time and energy! There are other Red Roof Inns along your route in the area not too far away. I love Red Roof Inns, am a RediCARD member and am simply SHOCKED they allow this to be in the brand at this point. The property needs major physical improvement (easily fixed with... More

Clean, quiet and good value.Continental breakfast was a plus.Pet friendliness was a BIG plus. Friendly staff. Comfortable beds. Interior hallways, which are unusual for Red Roof, but several entrances were convenient when bringing things in from the car. Nice neighborhood.
