“Another good stay and no Isaac storm this time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

First the positives....Firm mattress...good amount of lighting...bathtub/shower combo...coffee/tea in room...ice machine behind office with vending machines....shampoo supplied....nice TV with lots of channels and HBO stations...ice conditioning fine...great location with lots of things around (Rite Aid, fast food places, service stations, etc)....quiet. Now the few negatives...this is never going to change but the Boardwalk/Sherwood Forest intersection is a nightmare for traffic. You can drive a little N o Sherwood Forest past Boardwalk to a traffic light and there is an early circle around to come in the back way...no minfridge or microwave in room, there is a microwave in the vending/ice machine area. I will say the overhead light didn't work and the office tried to switch out bulbs (must either be the switch or the fixture). Anyway, I don't count that as a negative because they offered to switch me to another room but with the plentiful lighting, I didn't miss it.

My family and I stayed at the Red Roof on Friday 16,2013 7:25 We checked in, we wasn't going to rent a room because looking at the location it didn't seem safe but we notice Securiy department was doing such a good job making sure the environment was secured front desk service was awful the lady was chewing gum and playing on her cell phone the room smelled really bad when we told the front she asked did we want air freshener my wife told her don't worry we wanted a new room. All to say the place was nasty but safe. I've stayed here before back in Sep 2012 and I didn't feel as safe but this time with on site Security we did...... HIRE A NEW FRONT DESK REP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Checked in at 6:00 pm on Friday. Got to my 2nd floor room and didn't come out till around 8:00 and when I did was startled by several (more than four) young black men peering over the railing two doors down from my room. All were talking on phones all had tats and all had their boxer shorts exposed at the tops because their pants were pulled down. Not to be too concened at this one instance, but when I went downstairs to the vending area, I realized that they were likely the look-outs for the activity going on below. Will find another place to stay in future.

The staff was friendly,rooms ,bathrooms, and bedding clean and for the price it was a rather nice hotel.Only problem I had is I didn't stay a little longer. The front lobby was clean. I had a reservation it was so quick there was no long wait to getting in my room. Thanks Red Roof Inn& Staff

we had reservations at this location last week. We had requested 2 rooms. Both rooms smelled of urine. There were questionable people in the lobby and milling about by the front door.
OUR FAMILY DID NOT FEEL SAFE and we immediately cancelled our stay and went to another location. I suspect drug dealing and ladies of the evening. Not fit for family stay.

the staff was friendly but after there for two days its hard to get clean towels or linen. i stayed a week and not one time did i see a housekeeper.that department is awful.when i asked for service they made an excuse saying they was not the housekeeper for my floor.and not to mention the room i stayed in was dirty when i arrived.i found a couple of small roaches in my room crawling on my wall.i will not advise u to stay here. a couple of drug heads were seen by my children smoking pot in the parking lot. I WILL NOT BE BACK TO STAY EVER AGAIN.
