“If you need the WiFi, stay on the 3rd floor only”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

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.

Room Tip: The higher you go, the better the WiFi service

Especially if you have your family with you. Everything is close by. Great all around hotel. I will stay here everytime I'm in the area.

Room Tip: All the rooms are pretty good. Elevator is in the center breezeway.

The room had some nice updates. New laminate floors, flatscreen TV, and clean linens. I entered the room at night and it looked clean. had a room near the road but the traffic didnt disturb me. Also, I was on the first floor and I didnt notice the air conditioner being loud as mentioned so I guess I got lucky there. First problem I had was when I went to use the bathroomm the floor was wet. Looked like water comming from the toilet. Tile was puckered behind the toilet. In the morning I noticed black dots on the bathoom ceiling that looked like mold. I was sorry to see that since they have obviously done work to improve the place. Didnt loose sleep over it but wouldnt have spent more than one night there. My main gripe was that the picture shows a fridge and microwave and the room didnt have one. They had room service but it only served lunch and dinner. No breakfast +no fridge or microwave to make breakfast+ no coffee maker+ no hair dryer+no iron= never again! Who doesnt provide a iron? We are traveling. Clothes get wrinkled. Thank god for Downy Wrinkle release.

Redroof Inn Timonium is an excellent hotel for an unbelievable rate! The rooms are newly renovated and are impressively attractive. However, what stands out at this hotel is the unselfish and outstanding customer service you are given.

For example, upon arriving at the front desk, I was greeted with a warm smile by Miss Goldie, who checked me in without delay and told me to call upon her should I need anything. Also, moments after I got settled in my room, I received a call from Mr. Wasm, who asked me if my room met my expectation. WOW! I felt like I was in a four-star hotel.

If you are looking for a 4-star environment at an incredible rate, go to Redroof Inn Timonium.

Room Tip: The luxury king room is very spacious and offer more television channels to select from.

We stayed at this location for four days while visiting family in Baltimore. Rooms are clean, staff is friendly and efficient, free parking, quiet location,(except for a nearby highway if that bothers you ask for a room not on the highway side) , pets are welcome, vending machines on premises, close to restaurants, light rail, shopping and convenience stores. The only reason it wasn't perfect...no pool, internet was kind of slow and there was no gym. If you want a room with a coffee pot or microwave you have to request one, easy check in process. Don't harass you at check out time and maids don't bug you.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the highway and if you need a coffee pot or microwave you must request that...

We arrived late and had to wait for desk clerk to arrive. It was because he was out working yet would have been nice to have someone there instead of waiting to check in for 15 mins after long trip.
Beds were nice. Shower was ok. Toilet drained slowly yet was ok. The AC was LOUD yet worked fine. Overall a great stay in a great location. Will recommend to anyone and will stay again.
