We spent the night here during a road trip. The hotel was recently renovated, very clean, and comfortable. All rooms are smoke-free which we appreciate. We also liked the on-the-go "breakfast" bag consisting of bottled water, an apple, and a muffin to go with the coffee served in the front lobby. Great quality for a low-frills price. The clerk at...

This location has been a sight for my sore eyes on several occasions after a long day of driving. The location is perfect, literally right off the interstate. Extremely friendly staff always there to greet you and the rooms are always clean.

Perfect stop off the highway. Room was clean and we both slept well. Suggest you request a room on the opposite side of the highway to not hear nearby cars. There's a long ride ahead of us and we both feel rested. We would definitely stay here again

Four of us stayed at the Red Roof Inn for one night over July 4th weekend. The rate was higher than usual since many nearby hotels were booked which was disappointing. It is just off I-90 which was great. The front desk clerk gave an expansive list of nearby restaurants for dinner options. The hotel is a 20 minute drive... More

We spent a couple of days here because it was so cheap. We asked for a room opposite of the highway as per some of the reviews we read. Our stay turned out to be a good one. All we had intended was needing a place to sleep and that is what we did. We only used it to sleep.... More

Much nicer than I expected for the reasonable rate. I would definitely stay here again. We stayed on the side away from the highway and it was very quiet in the room. Although it was a really hot day, the air conditioning worked great and the room was already nice and cool when we arrived. I really liked the wood-look... More

The room was very clean and served its purpose very well. The only problem we had was that the water from the spigot was not good. Its smelled like the local pool. Was not good enough to make coffee or to drink in my opinion. Smelled like chlorine and chemicals.

For the money, this is a decent place. The bathrooms are pretty nice and beds are comfy. I also loved the AC in the room. However, there were a few main problems. First, the internet was extremely slow at times. It was almost useless. Also, you can hear a lot through the walls. I was woke up twice early in... More

Pleased with my brief stay on a cross-country trip. Room was clean & spacious with fridge & microwave. The decor is a bit spartan, but someone planned the room carefully to make it very user friendly. Nice work desk & chair, lots of convenient outlets for electronics. Big vanity, nice for women, but it does need a makeup mirror. I... More
