I have not stayed in a Red Roof in since right after high school. That was when we didn't care about anything except road tripping somewhere new, for as cheaply as possible. I won't tell you how long ago that was but lets just say a long, long time! I was once again taking a road trip and needed a place to stay two-thirds of the way to my destination. I knew I was going to arrive late and check out early so I could not justify paying alot for a room. After seeing the positive reviews on tripadvisor and finding a great rate, I thought why not give this chain a try again. It was a very nice surprise after a long day of driving, our room was very clean! My favorite part was the room had NO wall to wall carpeting, only an area rug. I get whigged out at the idea of bedbugs and alway do "the check", no carpet just made everything seem cleaner. I hope other hotels follow their flooring decor. The only thing that I was at all concerned about was the mustard colored bedspread that had a black design, I wondered if it was as clean as it was smart looking. My hope is they keep this hotel up and looking the way I experienced it because I would like to visit it again someday and maybe stay a little longer.
