“Just OK, but good price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

We were traveling with a young couple who did not want to spend much on hotel rooms and we had stayed in a nice Red Roof Inn the night before in Virginia. By comparison, this was like a different chain. It was a motel style where the other was a nice looking hotel. The other included breakfast, this one did not. The room in this one was much smaller. We could barely pass each other in the room. The heat was hard to regulate. We had it on around 70 degrees, and woke up around 2 AM in a sweltering room. The air conditioner had been turned off, so we turned off the heat, turned on the fan and opened the door to the outside. It was below freezing and we fanned the room with the door. The funny thing was that the other couple said that they got up around 2:00 and had to open the door and fan the room. The people were nice enough, but it just wasn't a good quality, even for the low price.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your experience at our property, it is only through valued guest like yourself that we are able to see where we can improve ourselves for our guest.

I realize you stayed at one of the New Gen properties which must have been a very pleasant stay! Just so you know we are also expecting the same or similar renovation in the upcoming New Year.

Thank you for staying with us! We look forward to your return in the near future.

As a entertainment professional this location put me right in the middle of 2 major locations for communicating with new and existing talent, recording artist and entertainment professionals. I was extremely pleased with all the assistance I received from the front desk staff on getting to appointments and meetings which were easily accessible from major interstates and parkways. The management and front desk staff were awesome along with the housekeeping and maintenance personnel. Thank you for your down home hospitality!

Clean and quiet room conveniently located close to the interstate, a shopping plaza and numerous eateries. My husband, dog and I felt right at home for our stay. Both the Manager (Raneeka Boulhassne) and Front Desk personnel are professional, polite and knowledgeable; willing to go the extra mile to provide exceptional customer service. Ms. Boulhassne has trained her staff well and should be commended because it shows when she is not on premises. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it.

The Manager Raneeka Boulhassane and her front desk staff go out of their way to ensure that the needs of the residents are met. Additionally I would like to take a moment and comment on your housekeeper "Mariela" for the awesome job she does at the Red Roof Inn. Mariela cleans each room as though it were her own home, she takes pride in her work and always has a smile on her face. If it were possible to be awared "Employee of the Month" I truly believe she would hold that titleas long as she is employed. My hat goes of to such an exceptional woman and may others learn from her example. Hats off to the Manager!

The front desk staff is awesome and very polite using your last name and Mr. or Mrs. before speaking with you! The manager (Raneeka Boulhassne) is unparalleled in making sure that her customers and staff have what is needed to every request. Our cleaning lady (Mariela) took such care in cleaning our room as if she were cleaning her own home which is extremely impressive. Hats off to such a wonderful job in maintaining an awesome hotel and the manager should take a bow!!

Stayed here just one night but will return if ever in the area. Great beds, great tv, great staff on site. Rooms were clean and ready when we got there, they welcomed us and overall, it was a great experience.
