“Exceeded expectations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

After reading a variety of very poor reviews, I was nervous about staying here. I stayed in a smoking, superior king room, and was extremely pleased with the room. It could have been cleaner, but was satisfactory. The room was extremely well equipped, the maintenance staff were speedy and helpful (I had a problem with the coffeemaker), and I will definitely stay here again. The room was so quiet, housekeeping couldn't even wake me up through the door! Comfy bed, hot shower with fancy shampoo and sweet smelling soap. Big fluffy towels. Haven't ordered room service, but the menu looks good.

Cheap hotel room. Changes rooms 3 times, all non-smoking rooms had heavy smoke smell. Tub didn't drain water when using shower. Service friendly. Location decent. Across from several restaurants. Wouldn't stay here again.

I have been staying here once a week for the past few months. You can not beat the price for a overnight stay. The staff is friendly and takes care of you. The rooms are clean and maintained. I have not had any negative experiences at this establishment and continue to stay there on a weekly basis.

The 1st room we were put into the air didn't work properly and found 1 roach but the staff was willing and happily moved us. They moved us to the room right next to it which was great so we didn't have to move our things very far. The 2nd room they put us in was immaculate. Absolutely loved it. Smelled very clean & could tell it was thoroughly cleaned. No problems with the air. Used the safe in the room which was great to have for personal reasons. Would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Bob Evans restaurant next door is AWESOME!!!

Room Tip: Get the Superior King Room...More Room & Has A Great Desk In Them...Price On Website Is Cheaper...

Elevator and center hall were dirty, should have given me a clue. Room does have a 32" flatscreen and seemed reasonably clean except for the musty smelling carpet. Saw some questionable characters hanging out in the hallways when I had to get my shaving kit out of the car just before midnight. To top it off there was a german roach in the bathroom when I went to take a shower in the morning. The place could use a thorough overhall, many Red Roofs have changed for the better, this is not one of them but it can get there with some capital investment and elbow grease.

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.
