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

I am a RediCard member and usually love staying at Red Roof Inn. You get a clean room with the basics for a great price. Well, the price was the only thing good about this hotel. The outside of the hotel looks run down, but nothing that would scare us away without walking in. The lobby was nice, and the... More

Upon checking in to the hotel, the Front Desk person was very nice. As we were discussing price and availability, the phone was constantly ringing and the Front Desk person was conversing with the person on the other end, from what I overheard, the person on the other end was telling the Front Desk Person to ask me certain questions:...

First of all, in the advertising of this hotel they claim to have refrigerators & microwaves in the rooms--LIE! Our sheets had cigarette burns all in them, our comforters were stained yellow as if they had been peed on recently, we ended up dusting the night stand OURSELVES, we found someone's fingernail/toenail clippings in the floor, the pillows are FLAT...
