The staff was friendly, in fact he was from Florida. The lobby and room were clean. Everything worked. They severed a free breakfast if I had time. I was coming back from a funeral, and needed to be on the road early. The price was competitive was surrounding hotel's.

I stopped here on my to and from Florida (From and to Michigan), so when I arrived, I was very tired! It was a quick check-in and the night clerk was very friendly, as was the morning clerk on my way out! The place does have some issues such as outdated rooms, but the clerks are very accommodating, they honored... More

My wife and I got a great rate for a Sat night -- just passing thru. We have stayed at one of the other Red Roof properties in town so we tried this one. The rooms need lots of work. The toilet seat was broken, electrical face plates off the wall, ironing board with no iron, advertised "2 Queen beds"... More

Have been staying at this hotel for 12 years....never again! Rooms are VERY tired, not clean, furniture missing etc. Too bad as property is stratagically located but has been going down hill each year we visit. VERY bad example for Red Roof Inns. Will not stay there again & will not recommend to friends

I have had success going to Red Roof Inns in the past. Usually a place that is inexpensive for a one night stay on a car trip. Many have been very nice for the money. This location has not been updated yet, but was ok. Check in/check out went well. Breakfast not great, but was ok since I wasn't expecting... More

My husband and I have used Red Roof Inns in our travels for more than 30 years. We recently took a short trip to celebrate our wedding anniversary. My husband booked three nights with RRI. We were very dissatisfied with the room because of several issues. We cancelled the other two reservations that we had and booked with another hotel.... More

I think we've stayed at our last Red Roof. TV remote didn't work. Ceiling needed paint/repair due to water stains. Lamp shade with 50% missing from inner liner. Carpet stained in several places. Ceiling light fixture in bathroom with bare bulbs. Garbage dumped behind electrical box outside. Overall, a general look of a poorly maintained property. Made us want to... More

**Unlawful charges to account** the rooms were ok, service was bad, and not only were there bogus additions to the account but management has completely ignored all requests to fix said situation. So sad that a business has to steal money to make any profit.

I'm a Redicard member and stay at a lot of Red Roofs. Had to be in the Knoxville area so thought I'd try this property out. When I got there the desk person told me that there was no way she could even allow me to register let alone check in before 2:30pm(I was there at 1:15). I had to... More
