I understand that Red Roof is an "economy" type hotel, but some standards should be maintained in any hotel chain. I was very tired the day of my arrival and did not notice the mold growing on the ceiling when I checked into my room, all I wanted to do was to lay down and get some sleep. After trying to sleep for about 4 hours with interruptions, I just got up. I felt as though the housekeeping staff showed no respect for the "DND" hanging on my door as they rolled laundry baskets and whatever else up and down the sidewalk in front of my room, and my room was nowhere near their laundry facility. After waking up and turning the lights on is when I noticed the mold growing on the ceiling. The dark area's in the pictures are where the mold is growing black under the paint. It is not a BAD paint job. I stayed only one night after seeing this, although I book for a week stay because of work.
My suggestion, unless you do not care about your health, is to stay away from this hotel OR check your room well before accepting the room. I wish I was seeing straight (exhaustion) when I checked in. I would have never accepted this room.
I have no tip for selecting a good room. The best tip is to choose a different hotel.
