“Best hotel value in a LONG time!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

If you are in the Akron area and want a nice, clean, comfortable room at a fair price, look no further! We booked a room sight unseen, but once we arrived were extremely happy. The rooms look brand-new, are spacious, very well laid out, and just couldn't be better. My wife even took a bath in the tub! (She's a nurse, so...that should tell you a lot about how clean everything was.) Beds are super-comfortable, everything works, what else can I say. This hotel goes on our list of preferred locations anytime we're in this area. You won't be disappointed.

Stayed two nights. Rooms were nice for the money. Price was as quoted which I can't say that for the Erie, PA location. Only semi negative is the small bathroom. Front desk was very helpful and courteous. I would stay again.

I've been traveling Ohio weekly for the last 4 months for my job. I always stay at the Roof.
All of the locations have been updated from the floors up. Beds are very comfortable with plenty of pillows. Flat screen TVs and nice working space in the King Deluxe rooms. WI/FI is a simple access and some are better than I have at home. My only complaint is I work nights and sleep in till 11 AM or later and the cleaning carts make way too much noise. Maybe they could put pneumatic tires on the carts and make the walkways smoother. I suppose most people are gone by the time they clean.

Room Tip: Get there early for first floor rooms or call ahead for late check in.

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience at the Red Roof Akron, we really do appreciate the feedback. I do apologize that the housekeeping carts disturbed your sleep. I use to work 3rd shift myself and know how difficult it can be to get some sleep during the day. Next time we can put you in a section of the hotel without many guests so it should be quieter for you.

This is one of the nicer Red Roof Inns. They have been remodeled and have Flat Screen TVs as well as wooden floors. I was there for a week and did not have any problems during my stay there. Room was clean. Staff was very helpful and accomodating.

We stayed here for 9 days in July 2013 while visiting Ohio. Service was excellent and we had no complaints about the room or the cleanliness. They do not serve breakfast, but there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again.
