“More Than What You Pay For, But Not A Lot More”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

I was travelling on my own for just one night and was trying to save some bucks. Red Roof was near the bottom of the list in cost, but the previous reviews were mostly positive and I thought I would take a chance. The staff were courteous, the room was dated, but clean, and the room was surprisingly quiet. Everything in the room worked and the workspace provided in the deluxe king room was nice. I took a shower at 6 a.m. the next morning and with the water turned as hot as it would go, only got warm water, but it wasn't cold. The bed was comfortable and there was a nice selection of pillows of different firmness. I didn't get the room because of the "free breakfast" and wasn't expecting much, but got even less. The breakfast items are set up in a small alcove at the front entrance smaller than any of your closets at home. I think they would be better served by not offering breakfast instead of this poor excuse.

We needed a place to stay and everything was booked up. We were able to get a room here. The staff, when we checked in were helpful and talkative, but other staff that came after that acted like they could care less if they helped guests. Wi-Fi did not connect and we had to take cold showers in the morning because there was no hot water. We expected a no frills stay, but this was a disappointment.

I have stayed at this Red Roof several times over the past two years. Still comfortable, seems like the grounds are cleaner than in the past but the breakfast offered shrinks with every visit. An exterior entrance design with nice sized rooms and decent beds. Close to I-70 but still quiet. For budget travelers, this place or the Motel-6 farther East are the best choices

I like certain things in a hotel: Cleanliness, Quiet, Convenience and Comfort.
The staff here was super friendly from check in to check out. I did not eat the breakfast served as the hotel allowed me to sleep in a little late.
Great value! Super close to the venue I was going to without killing my budget.
I was very pleasantly surprised, and when my next visit to Columbia comes, this is where I will stay. The rooms are large, somewhat outdated in decor but if that meant a lot to me there are boutique hotels that you can book that cost far more.
Clean. Quiet. Comfy. Convenient. And friendly! Thank you for making my stay great.

I have been staying at the Red Roof for years and it is always a joy to be welcomed by the staff and find a room that is Clean, quiet and safe.
The staff are all so friendly and willing to help and make sure your stay is like a home away from home.
Since I travel the state I stay many places, but staying there allows me to relax, work, and be refreshed the next day.
Thank you all, Brandy, Jessica, Trisha, and all the others who clean and maintain the place.

Clean room. No charge for pet. One pet per room. Reasonably priced. Small king size room. Older tv. Newly remodeled room with large nail holes in walls. Great sleeping king size bed. Friendly, professional desk people. Would stay here again for sure.

We were impressed with the updated look and details of the room, the amenities (fridge and microwave), and cleanliness. Wish we could have stayed longer! And now I'm just writing more to get this to two hundred characters. I don't want it to get tossed!
