“Red Roof Inn Akron South - Perfect for a Quick Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2006

We stayed at the Red Roof Inn Akron South after coming in on a late flight from California to Akron. This hotel was perfect for that purpose. It has been updated to a fun, modern, sleek style. You can see pictures of the rooms at the Red Roof website. The rooms were clean, but not big, so this is definitely a short term sorta place. The check in was easy and the front desk staff was friendly. We found the best rate by booking online through the hotel's site.

There is a Denny's and Applebee's in the parking lot and a McDonald's just up the street. There's also a White Castle at this exit - which was fun for a Californian to try!

Happy traveling!

  • Liked — Convenience and cleanliness

Thank you for taking the time to let other travelers know about our place. We appreciate all the comments.
You listed your one dislike would be that we did not have a hairdryer. Currently we are able to provide those by request from the front desk.
We are listening and working on accommodating guest needs when possible.

Thank you!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2006

We stayed the night at this hotel recently. It was in a good location right off the interstate in what appeared to be a relatively safe area. The hotel was in good shape and the rooms were clean. No breakfast was served and no wireless access from what we could see. It was very affordable and a good value. (If you can get this hotel for under 60 bucks we would change it's rating to "above average".)
