3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

I stay over in Tallahassee several days a week because I'm transitioning into a move out of town. This hotel is not bad overall, and while I was there, they serviced the AC units in all rooms and had the carpets professionally cleaned. So they are slightly refreshed, but the linens and things could use some refreshing. The entire front desk staff is very friendly and I have to say that Clarence at the front desk is awesome! I'm not the type of person to ask for much, but he has always taken care of anything I needed with a smile. The rooms are slightly small, but for just an overnight, it's worth the price!

Room Tip: Go for the Superior rooms, they are not much more!

I had to travel up to Tallahassee from Ft Myers last minute for my wife to see her grandmother in the hospital. It 1 in the morning and I see a sign on the interstate for Red Roof Inn. I just wish it would have advertised the hard bed, tiny square pillows, and that your room will stink horribly of mildew and marijuana. When its that late and you have already paid for the night, I waited until the morning to find a normal hotel. Last time I stay at the Red Roof.

Okay... Pay attention. This was for the night pass through on the way farther south. Budget cost, small room, average all around, bedspread needed laundering, entire motel needed refreshing and it wasn't too appealing driving up to the office. Red Roof needs to kick this one up a notch.

Room Tip: I don't think room location means much.

I visit Tallahassee once a month and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. Chad seems to always be working the front desk and I'm happy to see him there each time. He always provides prompt and friendly service without hesitation. The rooms are always clean and if you need anything it is simply a phone call away. Great place! I recommend to anyone visiting the area!

Room Tip: Make sure you mention it if you are a Florida resident! You get a small discount!

I booked this online, and took an inexpensive room. The staff was friendly, the room seemed clean and well equipped. However, there was a deordorizer smell in there that made me wonder if it really was always non-smoking. The room was older, and the lock mechanism worn, but all in all it was about what I expected. Nothing to rave about, and no big complaints.

We arrived in Tallahassee late in the evening and needed to stop over before continuing our journey home. Based on prior reviews, we chose this property. It was very reasonable and very close to where we located at the time. There were only three rooms available, and we chose the single king located on the bottom floor, since it was storming and we wanted easy ingress and egress. The room was clean and quite adequate for an overnight stopover. The bed was fine and there was parking available directly in front of the door. It was unusually chilly that night, and getting the temperature adjusted was tricky but not a deal breaker. It was a tiny room, by anyone's measure -- not enough room for two people to pass side-by-side between the foot of the bed and the television. But, again, for one evening, it was fine. The location is excellent. Easy on and off of I-10. Located in a safe, newer looking area. A Cracker Barrel is right next door. A safe is provided in the room. No fridge or microwave. But for the price of under $50, it was clean and safe and a great bargain for a one-night layover.

Customer service was excellent, and the room was quite reasonably priced and Clarence hooked us up. The only complaint we had was that the shower didn't have much heat one morning, other than that no problems.

Room Tip: Talk to Clarence if he's working, he's an understanding guy that can help you out.
