First, before I write about the room, I want to say the front desk clerks that I met were really sweet and tried to be accommodating.
It is obvious that the decor has been recently updated, nice floors in bathroom, granite counter tops for bathroom but.....no amount of nice decor hides an unclean room. I knew I bid for this room and was taking a chance. I had just stayed at a Knights Inn in Newcomerstown, OH the night before and it was MUCH cleaner. I had really expected Red Roof to at least be the same as Knights. I had a non-smoking room, but there were ashes on the headboard. Then, I made the mistake of looking under the bed and I found an empty cigarette carton and dog poop. I was willing to deal with it and stay because I had already paid the price on Priceline. So, I got ready to take a shower and there were no towels. I had to leave the room from the third floor and walk down to the lobby at night outside to get towels to take a shower. Again, the front desk clerk was very nice after I described the state of the room.
Still as a previous reviewer said, you get what you pay for!
...no coffee pots, no breakfast, nothing.
Its sad when a stay at a Knights Inn was better :(
