I am unfortunately staying at this Red Roof Inn because of business in the area. So by no choice of my own my company made the arrangements. Seeing the "good" reviews they booked 5 days! My first impression was the person at the desk having trouble finding my reservation then attempting to enter my room at 1:30 and it not being ready. The housekeeper still doing what I guess she considered cleaning in the room.
Now with that being my first impression I was already salty! However, I am there for work (5 days) so I sucked it up and got dressed for work. Only to return at 10pm to the lights flickering in the bathroom and vanity area. Bugs crawling around the air conditioner. Lucky me I stopped at the closest Walmart and purchased disinfectant spray as well as bug spray. Also, when taking a shower it was more like taking a bath in dirty water! The drain did not drain and water was past my ankles! The topper to all of this was the fact my door would night close unless I pushed super hard. Also the extra security lock was broken! The screws kept falling out! So a single woman on the first floor and no security! I was able to pull the chair against the door and stack all my bags on and around it. Slept with my knife my husband gave me (just in case).
Lastly, I awake after a sleepless night to noise outside my door (7am). They were now power washing the building. I look outside they covered my car with plastic! No one told me off this! I have a convertible soft top that would be damaged if any chemicals got on it! $5000 to replace that top, if the Red Roof can't fix their hotel then I am sure they wouldn't fix my top!
I checked out on Sat.6/28/14 only to have to check back in on Mon. 6/30/14. I don't want to but again I traveled 3 hours away from home for work. I am not flipping this bill! Not a good experience and I am sure my next 4 days will be the same! Not looking forward to this trip!
Sadly I will be very careful if I ever consider a Red Roof in the future! I know there are some really nice ones however this one is not!
