One night stay after 11 hours on the road. Spotlessly clean, very quiet, friendly staff, very good WIFI and a comfortable king size bed. Couldn't ask for more. This facility is right off I40 ... less than a minute once you take exit #383. Also very convenient to several excellent restaurants; less than 5 minutes away.

Updates are needed bad. For the most part clean. In the shower there are mats that had black mold. When I mentioned it to the front desk. She said it was the glue they were put down with and they were cleaned with bleach but she would get a cleaning person by. After they came by the black "glue" was... More

This hotel was clean, affordable and comfortable! Huge plus is that it's dog friendly, and they don't charge you an extra fee. My husband and I stayed here this past weekend and we were very happy. Our room was comfortable and clean. Everyone at the front desk was friendly. Super comfortable bed and pillows. Great location, easy to find, right... More

The room was decent and clean. I had a single, pet friendly room on the main floor with a nice view. The price was less than $50, and it was right off the interstate yet near downtown. The only problem I had was that the shower dripped all night.

Booked on line through their own site. King room supreme as they call it. First trip to the third floor the room was a double, not what I reserved. The next trip up to the third floor I was given a room that was occupied by someone who was refusing to leave and the room was a disaster. My third... More

We stayed for a day and it was 48 bucks w/o taxes. Its just off I40 it has an excellent location. If you ignore the broken electrical fixtures and the grumpy person in the front desk in the morning , you get exactly what you pay for.

we booked this hotel for our son to stay for one night. When he arrived, he was told that he would not be able to charge the room to the card we had used to reserve the room. Not a problem. We deposited money to his bank account and he used his debit card to pay. Two days later, while... More

I stayed here one night while driving cross country. Red Roof is not my preference, but options were limited (I think due to weekend leaf peepers and the local college football game). The property is fairly well marked and easy to find from the interstate. Check in was quick, easy, and friendly. There are multiple entrances depending on where your... More

I have never been to a Red Roof Inn before but needed an extra room for my 19 year old grand daughter so we could all have a bit of privacy on our trip. The price was very good for two rooms and the staff was knowledgeable and very helpful. Having said that, the hotel was very, very tired.The rooms... More
