“Clean, comfortable lodging”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Great Red Roof Inn. Renovated, updated rooms with comfortable bedding. Loved the design with a large desk (makes a nice dining area) and comfortable seating. Very clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. If you don't use the safe, they will deduct the charge from your bill. The only improvement I would make would be to include a breakfast. There are plenty of restaurants nearby, and a grocery. We would definitely stay here again.

I must say, this is the very nicest Red Roof property I've ever stayed in. The rooms have recently been renovated to include hardwood floors and a modern streamlined look. I agree with Nicole H. who mentioned that less is more... that is really true here. The flat panel TV had great sound and picture. And clean! This hotel is spotlessly clean. It's on par with the HI Express across the way that is charging a whole lot more.

The staff is super friendly and it feels like they want to be there and they enjoy the guest contact. Everyone smiles. I would definitely recommend this Red Roof to even my pickiest friends.

This is a great Red Roof Inn. The rooms have been completely updated and renovated with hardwood floors, upscale bedding and a great design the allows for a large desk area and lots of luggage space. There's even a safe in the room along with the usual coffee maker, fridge and microwave oven. Everything is spotless and the staff is friendly and helpful. In addition, you can walk to a McDonald's, Steak and Shake and a shopping center with a Target's and Publix. And if you have a dog, there's lots of space to walk them and there's no charge for pets. We will definitely be staying here again.

Absolutely fabulous! Those two words describe the hotel and my stay. The renovation is a work of art and the managers and staff provide exceptional service with a caring attitude. The design is modern and uncluttered. "Less is more"."The rooms have a minimal amount of fabric/fiber and that design minimizes the accumulation of dust, dirt, odors, stains, and bacteria. We "Monk-types" are truly grateful for these attributes. For those who are bothered by the "highway hum", and footsteps overhead, ask for a room on the top floor on the east side of the hotel. Accolades to the Executives who executed the plan to place their flagship hotel in North Central Florida. Your patrons ask that you continue to the renovation project to include more hotels, especially in metro areas.

We were purchasing a house and stayed long-term through the holidays with our dogs. The place is recently renovated and gorgeous. They have a very reasonable weekly rate especially for how nice the hotel is. They don't charge rediculous pet fees like other hotels especially when your pet keeps the room clean and damage free. The General Manager runs this hotel like its the Ritz. She is wonderful and has put staff in place who are friendly, helpful, and make sure your stay runs smooth. This hotel is extremely clean and non-smoking as well as the bed is quite comfortable. However, they have a really nice outdoor sitting area for smokers. The coffee is always fresh in the morning and ready to go with a friendly good morning from the staff. We highly recommend this hotel even for long-term.
