“Newly refurbished”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

I had stayed at this Red Roof Inn previously, so I was pleasantly surprised to see the entire facility has been refurbished. It's much neater, cleaner, and more modern looking than ever before. The staff was also friendly and efficient. It was also one of the least expensive places to stay in the DC area, and was close to where I needed to be, so I thoroughly enjoyed my brief stay.

This Red Roof was perhaps the cleanest one that I have used. And I stay at a LOT of Red Roofs. The exterior of the buildings was park like and hidden from the road by woods. There were nice grass buffers between buildings with trees planted. Neighboring buildings were nicely hidden by woods. It is obvious that the management takes pride in the place.

Now for the BAD news. I felt the room did not meet the typical standards for one of Red Roof's "Superior King Rooms." It was smaller than standard and not very well decorated. It is apparent that the building is older which didn't help. At least it was clean... As stated, this comes from someone who stays at a good number of Red Roof Inns.

My parents came to visit me in Washington, DC recently. As my apartment isn't suited for guests, we all stayed in this particular Red Roof Inn. Upon first glance, the hotel room seemed clean.

Unfortunately, the next few days showed that initial assessment to be false. The housekeeper did not clean the floor, toilet, or sink during the entire stay.

Additionally, the bedding didn't appear to be changed during the stay. Worst of all, the room had bed bugs.

I was bitten on around ten sites across my body, including my face. My mother also received several bites.

Please know that we take theses concerns very seriously. We have scheduled a (retraining) session for our team. This will be conducted by our pest control vendor. The training will include what to look for, and how to report suspected activity. Thank you for bring this to our attention, but also keep in mind that bed bugs do not discriminate and could be anywhere. Feedback from our customers really does help is to reduces further occurrences.
Thank You!

We stayed here for a week over Spring Break and it was fine to go back just to sleep at night. We thought the rooms were very small, although they are decorated nicely and were clean. Our big issue was the fact they only leave two towels in the room everyday (there were 4 of us staying there) and only restocked items like tissues and soap once in the entire week we were there. My husband would have to go to the front office every night and get more towels. He even asked if they could leave 4 towels and was told it's their policy to only leave 2 but would try to make a note with our request (obviously it didn't work). The only other problem we had is since it's a pet friendly hotel, we had a large dog staying in the room next door to us that was barking almost non-stop. I will say that once I called the front desk to complain about it though, we never heard it again. Overall, not that bad of a hotel for the price we paid just outside of DC over spring break.

Thank you taking time to write a review-your comments help us to improve our service. We are retraining our team members on the importance of being proactive. Example, ask at checkin " how many people" , leave a note for housekeeping daily-we clearly did not make that happen for you. Thanks for being patient with our team-hope you will give us another opportunity to make it right!

Thank you,

We stayed in two different locations on this trip. Nice to see that both Red Roofs have spent some money on redecorating & cleaning. The Rockville location was really in need of the re-do. Also, Kellie at that inn, was her usual great help. She really does a good job of meeting & greeting. She goes out of her way to provide great customer service. Thanks again, & we will be back. This was not any of your options below, but Business is close.

Room Tip: No pool, no restaurant, no correct option to select.

I can't get over how friendly and helpful the front desk staff was. Thanks to all of you. The room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. My complaints are minor. There are other motels in the same area in which I have stayed that you can book for around the same price. Those motels provide a decent breakfast (one has their own restaurant buffet) and better shuttle service. I understand that Red Roofs do not normally provide breakfast; however, I think that for the money one pays the shuttle service could be improved. There is a bus (No. 43) that you can take from near the motel to the Shady Grove Metro when the shuttle is not running. Parking is scarce at the Metro station.

The room was clean and comfortable, the staff polite and helpful, all of the rooms are entered from the outside, which I think is less secure than a main entrance, but I had no trouble. I wouldn't have any problem recommending red roof in to family and friends. I also stayed in a red roof near BWI airport and had a similar experience .

Room Tip: Get the room with coffee maker, fridge, and microwave
