When I checked in, I discovered that the toilet was clogged. Somehow, even though housekeeping had cleared the room after the previous occupant, they had neglected to unclog the toilet. So I went to the front desk (the staff member on duty that day was Regina) and asked that someone help to unclog the toilet. She went round the back and returned with a plunger. She thrust the business end at me and said, "There's no maintenance in today; you can try this." I was so shocked I couldn't even react for a moment; in years of staying at various types of lodgings, I'd never once been asked to clear a clogged toilet myself - particularly one that had not been caused by me but by a previous occupant!
Because I had to rush off that day, I left first. When I returned in the evening, housekeeping had cleared the room but had again refused to clear the clog. I could understand there not being maintenance staff on duty that day, but if the proposed solution was to use a plunger on the toilet, why could the housekeeping staff - or even Regina herself - not help to do it? Since when do guests have to perform these tasks themselves? What next? Should guests then have to change and launder the bedlinens themselves, or repair leaky faucets? It's a motel, not an apartment. Service is simply lacking at this motel.
Final clarification: The Red Roof Inn website coyly advertises WiFi availability, but it's not free. It's a T-Mobile paid service.
For the same price range, I recommend the Framingham EconoLodge instead.
