“Needs some TLC”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

We were having some work done on our house and needed a place to stay overnight. This hotel is just minutes from our house and pet friendly, which we appreciate. The desk clerk was very welcoming and accommodating. Our dog hates elevators and stairs so a ground floor was appreciated. The room was very large with a fridge and microwave, a large desk for a laptop and to double as a dining table. The air conditioning was working overtime, The room was freezing and the temp hard to regulate. The floor had not been vacuumed and the bathroom was dirty. There were stains in the tub that looked like rust or could have been blood...loose dirt in the corners..the bulb in the overhead light was so dim you could hardly see anything in the room. Most of the lamps in the room had bulbs of such low wattage that we had to turn every light in the place on just to be able to read. The sink was clean but the wall behind the sink was spotted with toothpaste splatters that could have easily been cleaned by housekeeping if they had wanted to. The bedspread had some nasty looking stains that were not evident until the spread was turned down...hesitate to guess what they were. This hotel is a nice property close to the interstate and close to several nice restaurants but it needs some serious TLC.The bathtub needs some repair or replacement. Most of my complaints resulted from sloppy housekeeping and are easily taken care of. I, would, with some reservation recommend this hotel to friends.

Excellent. We were there last week and the stay was great. Rob and Diana were very nice and helpful with everything, We will come again because of them. We do a lot of other things and the location fits very well. Again keep Rob and Diana. James Chastain (Sonny)

Went and bought a bathroom magic erased to clean the nasty dirty looking bathroom. The sponge turned black each of the three times I scrubbed the floor. Walls were nasty and around the toilet. Carpet looks like it needs a GOOD cleaning too along with the walls and doors. Some one needs to pay attention to the cleaning crew or lack of actual cleaning...

The Red Roof Inn was well below the quality that I've seen with other Red Roof Inns up north. The room was outdated, but did have a working flat screen TV. No coffee maker, not even a continental breakfast. The clerk was friendly and courteous, but overall, it wasn't worth the price of the stay.
