I'm so grateful for Red Roof Inn's pet-friendly policies that I'm happy when I can get a reservation at one for a decent price. This Madison location has been updated with excellent beds and large flat screen televisions. It also offers free local and long-distance phone calls and decent free wifi. The location is far enough off the busy highway... More

Pretty much only booked here because EVERYthing else in Madison was booked that weekend and we needed a room w/2 beds. Older motel with 2 levels, we stayed Wed-Sun. They allow pets, so there was a big pit bull next door that barked fairly often, although it was quiet during the night. Actually, our room was the end on the... More

I stayed overnight at this Red Roof Inn on April 17th. It was $90.44 for a king sized bed that included a micro-fridge and microwave. The whole hotel just seemed dingy and dirty. The room was adequate, however, I do not feel it was worth $90. The room could be described as clean as long as you use a very... More

My girlfriend and I are staying for a week. The room, bathroom, and sink area is clean; the bed is fresh and clean; our room has a decent size mini fridge, microwave, desk/work area, and the shower has par water pressure without running out of hot water with showers being taken back-to-back. I travel for work 100% of the year,... More

We stayed here for a week while house-hunting last July. it's not the swankiest place in town, but it was clean enough and definitely priced well for what we got. The location was excellent, near East Towne Mall and plenty of places to eat. The only problem we had was that there were never enough towels (they left 2 sets... More

This location has horrible service. The lady at the front desk on the night shift Saturday night was very rude and did not have good customer service. I drove from chicago and had a reservation. But told me I could not stay. Told me to get a different motel. I didn't even know why. It was just me and my... More

The carpets are worn down so much they are a trip hazard. The morning wake up call is the consists of the cleaning lady banging the door down to "wake you up/ kick you out". Far from downtown. This is the type of place you take a hooker too, not a family vacation spot.After dealing with the front desk, I... More

Friendly front desk staff, great location. Given a handicapped accessible room for some reason, maybe because I used corporate lodging card? Overall nice room as Red Roofs go.
