Booked this room through priceline. Im not really sure why priceline considers this a 2 star. It should be a 1 star hotel, thats what it felt like. The living area seemed clean, the bathroom could have used a good cleaning, hair on the floor. TV worked, front desk was nice, a few questionable guests staying close by....Its close to... More

Pricelining a 2 star hotel is always risky - but usually if the hotel is new it's okay. This one, thought, not new, was really better than okay. Clean, comfortable beds, decent shower . . .and very affordable. Staff was beyond friendly and helpful . . .it was a great stop for the night. Breakfast was substandard - but free... More

It's a bit far away from downtown Petersburg but the staff is friendly and the hotel room I stayed in wss clean enough. Don't believe the negative reviews. The hotel is a good value for what it is - chain motel.

The pro: The front desk personnel and manager were nice and accommodating when we asked to cancel our reservation after viewing our room. The cons: The room was dingy, threadbare everything, moldy smell, no coffee maker, empty pool. We thought the place was boarded up as we approached. We passed a parked car filled with smoke and young men on... More

Stayed with dogs which we had to paid extra for. Average property, clean, free coffee and good wifi. Friendly staff, had dog statue on counter with a sign they were pet friendly but charged. It was raining so we stopped, Ref Roof Inn doesn't charge extra for pets, but we were in heavy rain so we paid

We stopped overnight here on our way to Florida. Spacious clean room where everything worked. Friendly, helpful staff. Treed, quiet location, but close enough to I-95. No restaurant but microwave and refrigerator in the room so who cares?

Convenient to 95, this hotel is dated but works if you need a reasonable place for the night. Heat was very hard to adjust, but at least wasn't noisy. Breakfast is bare-bones - cereal, bread, and muffins.They don't even have real orange juice - it was Sunny Delite. You park right in front of the room, which is convenient if... More

I had a very pleasant experience on my stay. Neat and clean room. Very friendly staff. Breakfast was nicely organized with quite few varieties. Not bad for the price. I did check the hotel on the website before booking my stay and read the pool was closed which was not a criterion to book my stay anyway. Was amazed how... More

Filthy bathroom, filthy bathroom and vanity area floors, no coffee in room and the one in the breakfast area was worse than filthy. A vending machine that was 75% EMPTY. Coffe stained door card sleeve. No thanks for coming,... More

Paid $44 with tax for a night, the hotel rooms are dated but its clean. Has free wifi and in a quiet location, no partiers here like at other motels. Fridge and microwave in the room. A modern hotel will cost you another $20 a night so if your looking to stay on a budget this is the place.
