I like the way Red Roof Inns have been renovating their hotel rooms, with free WiFi as a huge plus. However, when I checked into this location, I was given a room on the first floor. The room was lovely, with a kick-butt air conditioner (albeit, it was an antiquated unit), but WiFi was nowhere to be found. At first, it was spotty all over the room, but then it went out and that was it (and for those skeptics: yes, I know how to setup and log on to internet connections).
When I inquired at the front desk, I was told that the signal is best on the third floor (the top floor of this hotel), so I went to check it out. I then asked the receptionist to change rooms to the third floor. The clerk complied, informing me that there is only one WiFi "antenna" unit, and that it's located on the top floor, with no repeater units on the other floors or in another location. On the 3rd floor, in my room, the WiFi was excellent, so all is well.
This hotel has only one elevator in the middle of the hotel, so if you have a room near the corridor ends, you will do lots of walking.
