“Gets the job done at great price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2009

Our check in was smooth and fast!!!!! The price was awesome, especially for the Thanksgiving Holiday. The housekeeping came at a nice enough time that we could sleep in and leave without ever having to know they were there. Check out was cool too. No hidden charges or funds holds on my debit card as I just experienced in July in Seattle(very annoying). We live in Philly now, but I'm originally from the Columbia area. If you aren't Arundel Mills or Columbia Mall is a great place to shop close by. Don't bother going to Laurel Mall, it's a waste of time.

I stopped at the Red Roof Inn when I saw the sign on I-95. It's not right off of the exit, so it took a few minutes to find it. The room was clean, no frills but pretty updated. Now the BED is a different story. The mattress had about 2 inches of padding. I sat down and hit the spring board. When I layed down I could feel the mattress springs. There was no comforter on the bed, you get a sheet and a duvet cover thingy. There was a litle noise from the highway, nothing too bad though. The air conditioner kept making noises and we would have to shut it off and turn it back on to make it stop. I got about an hour's worth of sleep because the bed was old and gross. Would NOT stay there again. Oh and there was a jail down the street, I just didn't feel comfortable there.

Thank you for your recent review. We do have comforters, blankets and a complete set of sheets on all of our beds. As a service to our guests, we turn down one bed each evening with the comforter to the end of the bed folded. Our friendly front desk staff is always available to assist with anything that you may need during your stay and would have been glad to assist you in meeting your needs. We hope that you will visit us again and allow us the opportunity to provide a clean, comfortable room at a great price with our excellent service.

At night, the hotel's lobby was locked at 9:00 PM, and there is a secure night window. This gives the impression that the area is not safe. I parked adjacent to the lobby, as I was worried about leaving the car. The exterior of the hotel is acceptable, but on the seedy side. The safety latch on the door did not work as it was installed incorrectly. The molding adjacent to the door lock was damaged. The room was not very clean, although it was not revolting. The decor is fine for this grade of motel. The staff were polite, but not friendly. Someone tried to call me, and was transferred at midnight to the wrong room. When she called back, the operator was impolite.
The beds were comfortable, as were the pillows although they were small. At one point, the toilet did not fill; I had to remove the cover and jiggle the mechanism. Lighting and the shower were fine, good water pressure. TV was good. They provide T-mobile WiFI service but for 1 night that costs $10 (unless you already subscribe). Although the price was good, I will not stay there again.
