“Decent room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

Despite the recent negative reviews, we found the room pretty clean. There was some dust on the furniture all around, but nothing else. Bed linen was clean, towels and bathroom clean too.AC worked good and wasn't loud .For a night you get a decent bed and room.

I stayed for 1 night. There was constant activity. People hang outside the doors. it is newly renovated but still bug infested. I was awaken at least three times by a crawling critter of some sort. Beware, Beware, Beware!

I dont know where to begin.
○ Called the desk for better directions, they never answered.
○ Had 2 rooms booked via Expedia rooms were not next to each other.
○ One room smelled like animals, since they allow pets.
○ Upon complaint and after spraying with Fabreez (did not work) their excuse, "maybe the room was not cleaned properly" that was it.
○ second room had mold in bathroom, spilled coffee on night stand never cleaned from previous person stay
○ Toilet was filthy
We left the next morning and they would not refund our second night. But thats how bad it was, I could not stay there another night.
I have never stayed at a Red Roof Inm, and never will again. I was better off paying another $30 bucks more a night and we stayed at the Sheraton Hotel.

I stayed here the weekend of May 30th. I arrived late and dealt with a tall African man who was the least accomodating. He is rude and has a "too bad if you don't like it attitude." He made excuses for whatever was wrong with the reservation and will try to cheat you out of your money. They do not do their job but make sure to shake you down on the room rate even if you have a reservation. Don't stare here. My room smelled like weed or cigarette smoke and the comforter had a cigarette hole in it--yet the hotel is 100% smoke free. I think the guy's name is Abdul or Abe--something like that...

I got a secret deal for four nights for only $188 and was a bit apprehensive. The reviews weren't that great after the motel was revealed but the location was good. Mainly there were complaints of the heavy smoking odors in the entire 100% non-smoking complex. However, to my joy, the room was freshly cleaned and the puffers did their thing in the parking lot. I liked the manufactured hardwood floors throughout the room with just carpeting under the beds.

There's no breakfast and long term residents seem to live on the back side. One had a dog, another was BBQing, and I could have sworn that I even smelled Indian curry. Also Comcast utility line workers, with many many boom trucks, were parked after a long day of work too.

None of this bothered me as much as logging on for the free wifi. Unlike McCafe or Starbuck's, it was not a simple click of "I Accept" but routed one around and around to get the security certificate first.

We like Red Roof Inns because of the pet friendly policy. This night I didn't have an opportunity to check on the reviews for this property before we checked in but we we're pleased with our stay.
Our room was very clean. It must have been newly renovated. It was also very quiet. The bathroom was spotless.
The only negative is one that is a pet peeve of mine with Red Roof Inns in general and that is the lack of any kind of breakfast. They offer coffee and tea. Other than that, nothing. Not even a newspaper.
Yes, we would stay there again if the occasion arises.

Room Tip: There are three levels to this property and it features outside corridors. If you need something on...

This hotel is very misleading from their web site. The rooms are small, our room looked like someone had slept on the king bed when we arrived. The coffee maker was absolutely filthy with grease, dirt and grime on the water resovoir. The washcloth was black, literally when I tried to scrub the coffee maker oiff. There were only 2 small pillows on a King bed (and this was their "superior king room" and when I requested more, I was told that there were none as the hotel was full. Come on folks, this doesn't even begin to cover the bed! The front desk was secured like a fortress and when we went to check out the next morning, the door was locked and I had to wait at least 15 minutes for someone to show up while the guy who had been in the office the previous night chatted outside on his cell phone.

Room Tip: Stay at the nearby Holiday Inn, not here!
