We normally stay at more expensive hotels, but for this trip we were just looking for someplace more affordable for a quick overnight sleep. We ended up staying two nights. Richard, at the front desk, was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean, the beds were very comfortable, internet was reliable, and the breakfast was better than expected for... More

We found this Red Roof Inn simply because it was next to an Applebee's we had stopped at for dinner. To our delight, the price was very reasonable and close to our conference during the day. The staff has been knowledgeable and helpful. The rooms are newly remodeled, complete with mini-fridge and microwave. We love the laminate floors because you... More

The room was surprisingly nice! No carpet which was a very nice change of pace. The bed was very comfortable but the bathroom left something to be desired. Everything seemed to be recently updated except the tub. It definitely needed some help. The guy at the front desk was very helpful and polite.

It's nice to pull upfront your room. The room has hard wood laminate floor. Clean, simple room great for an overnight stay. It is handy to many restaurants and highway access. Included a microwave, fridge and coffee maker. Wifi was free and worked well.

Looks good from the outside, but that is deceiving. Unprofessional front desk, needed to argue with the two parties ahead of me over the confirmed price versus the 'actual ' price of their rooms. You could tell he hates his job. My rate was ok but there was a misunderstanding about the actual number of people allowed per room. My... More
