“Great Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

From the outside this place looks a bit sketchy, but don't let that throw you! We had a very good experience at this establishment. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were clean and nicely remodeled. The beds in the double rooms are pretty small, but that definitely shouldn't be a deterrent to staying here, especially for the price.

Thank you for taking the time to write a nice review for the hotel. We have a passion for service and take great pride in our work. It feels good when someone notices. You should try our superior king room the next time you are in town. You may find that to be more comfortable since the other beds are only full size. I hope to see you soon.

Nicely remodelled and the staff was very nice! The property is older, but the rooms were clean and bright. LOVED the wood (laminate, I'm sure) flooring. Whoever thought of that should get a raise! There was someone cleaning/straightening the property every time we were outside of the room.

I stayed at the Red Roof Inn last month. This was my 2nd time ever at the hotel. I was staying for afew nights because of doctors appointments. I was very impressed with the staff. They make you feel at home. They were very friendly and accommodating. As being disabled the staff was able to bring some extra shampoo to the room for me. Which was a great plus. :-) The room was clean and comfortable. Nice comfy bed and I absolutely love the pillows they have in the rooms. I was asking about the pillows and the staff was helpful as could be. Thanks Kelli and Debbie <3 The shower was very easy to get into and very clean. The room also was great for relaxing. The ( handicap room) was big, with a king size bed, flat screen TV, desk, chair, chest of drawers, a safe, folding luggage rack, plus a small other rack attached to the wall with a place to hang some clothes, blow dryer, small refrigerator, microwave, and small coffee maker. Another plus was the WIFI (Which I used to get room service from a nearby restaurant) and its a quiet location with a gas station next door with all your late night cravings. LOL Over all I had wonderful experience at this location and would recommend this property to other travelers. I will definitely be staying again at this location. I hope and pray all other locations are just as good if not better than this Red Roof Inn.. Thanks so much to everyone that made my stay a great one.

Room Tip: The best feature was the parking by our room door which makes unloading the car much easier. ( Groun...

During a recent Military training evolution, the GM of Red Roof Inn donated much needed berthing for my Shipmates. The rooms were in ship shape and service was Outstanding. Other hotels should take notice of the generosity and patriotism the good people at this Red Roof Inn displayed. This was my first stay at a Red Roof Inn, and I'm proud to say "We shall return!"

Unfortunately, when Red Roof remodeled their properties, they took out some of the furniture and there are very few spaces to put belongings, luggage, etc. The TV takes up the top of the chest of drawers so the surface cannot be used for putting things on. If you use the desk for your computer the only other place to put anything is on the bath counter and one folding luggage rack. Since we have two bags, one of them had to go on the floor and there was no place to put other miscellaneous belongings. Our room was clean and the beds were comfortable---nice bedding, flat screen TV, granite counter in bath room, good wifi, nice people at the front desk, quiet location--no frig or microwave. Since we are seniors, the best feature for us is parking by our room door which makes unloading the car much easier. We make a point to find hotels with parking by the door---Red Roof Inns often have this feature---they call them "down and out" rooms---downstairs and outside.

Room Tip: Request a "down and out" room if you want to park by your door.

Thank you so much for the nice review. My staff takes great pride in the cleanliness off the hotel and it make them feel good when someone notices. The next time you stay with us you may want to try our superior king room. It has a microfridge, coffee pot, iron and board and a blow dryer in the room. There is also a very large work area so that you can put a bag on the desk along with your lap top. Come see us again.

We enjoyed our stay at the Red Roof Inn. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and comfortable. We have stayed at this property since 2000 during the National Quartet Convention in Louisville. We would recommend this property to other travelers.

During a recent training exercise we had lots of military members that were going to have to pay out of pocket for lodging due to sequestration. After discussing this issue with the General Manager she offered her overwhelming support for my Sailors helping out in any way possible. The newly remodeled rooms and comfortable beds along with their friendly staff made the stay a wonderful experience...too bad she couldn't make the training exercise in the field any better. :-P
