“We had a great weekend!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

My sister and I met in STL for an extended weekend to go to the Fabulous Fox and visit other "tourist" places. We chose the Red Roof Inn because of its location and prices, as we had stayed there before. We were pleasantly surprised to find that the property had been renovated! The rooms were NEW, tastefully done, and clean! The staff was very helpful and friendly! The property is just minutes from the Fabulous Fox, Forest Park, the Edward Jones Dome, The Arch, Busch Stadium, The Hill, The Science Center, Soulard, and other downtown attractions and venues. The rooms have nice beds, a flat screen TV, a safe, hair dryer, WiFi, and an Iron and Ironing board. They don't have a fridge, coffee maker, or microwave. We brought an ice chest and a small coffee maker, and made a trip to the store for other things we needed, and we did just fine! Whether for a business or pleasure trip, one night or extended stay, I would highly recommend the Red Roof Inn St. Louis-Forest Park! My sister and I will stay there again!

Room Tip: I would not really give a lot of weight to those who have posted really negative comments about this...

Nothing. No amenities in rooms - not even a coffee maker. Location is great but its only about 20 bucks cheaper per night than the neighboring motels. Stay away from this one. It's as bad as all of the day's inns I have stayed at - the difference being at day's inn, at least they're honest in their quality by their low prices!

My wife and I stopped in at this Red Roof Inn after having a good experience with the Red Roof In near the Philadelphia Airport. Also, it is along I-44 and that was the road we were taking home. Talk about a tale of two cities! We reserved the room over the cell phone and with the AAA rate, the room was $79.83 with taxes included. Once I showed pictures to the manager the following morning, we received an additional $20 off of the night. Rather than be defensive, the manager was quite nice and was appreciative of specific examples of how the room was being cleaned properly. The lady that worked when we checked-in was very friendly and helpful. I wish I could remember her name so that I could give her due credit in this review.

The room has the general layout of most other Red Roof Inns, though this one still had a tube TV. The wireless WiFi worked fine and the room had a refrigerator and a microwave. We found no bed bugs or any other pests in the room, or around the property. The sheets were clean and not worn. As mentioned before, there were things about the room that were not clean upon a closer look. The bathtub was filthy. There were hard water chemical deposits in the bowl of the commode. There were greasy finger prints on the wall light fixtures. The edge of the carpet had a thick layer of dust. I have shared pictures of the things that I have described. The heating/air unit worked fine.

This isn't the worst place that I have ever stayed - that honor is shared by Super 8 in Kutztown, PA and Motel 6 In Collinsville, IL. However, it is far from the best that I have ever stayed at within the $50-$100 price range.

First of all, I'd like to give the housekeeping staff kudos for keeping my older motel room clean and fresh on a daily basis. I stayed four nights and selected this motel based on a friend's recommendation which, I later learned, was strictly price driven. It was definitely cheaper than any other hotel in the area and provided the basics of shelter and convenience to the area of town I was working in. But, for me, it lacked two essentials - coffee in the room and some sort of continental breakfast in the lobby to get me started before I headed out to my day's work (I'm an artist exhibiting at various art shows across the country). Finding out there was no coffee in the room was the real bummer. I found out later that you can have coffee in the room if you book one of their 'larger' rooms/suites, but I didn't know that at the time of booking through hotels.com. The good things about this motel were the low price, the friendly & helpful staff, free wireless in the room, the updated curved shower curtain rod and a very good strong shower. The negatives were the lack of coffee in the room; uncomfortable bed; very very slow wireless (albeit free); the lack of any continental breakfast in the lobby; the annoying wall light switches which seemed to nearly require a pair of pliers to operate and the pathetic little travel packet of kleenex on the vanity instead of a full box.

Room Tip: If you want coffee in your room, specifically ask for one of the few that has it.

This is strictly a "no frills" place to stay, but it was close to The Hill with all its wonderful Italian restaurants and also close to the Missouri Botanical Gardens.
I had an accessible room which worked great for me. It was clean, but the furnishings were dated. It was right on I-44, but our room was quiet. The bed was comfortable and we both slept well.
The total cost for a room for two, including tax, was around $72. We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed on the side of hotel away from the highway.

Good location and a much lower price than other nearby hotels. On the surface the room was clean but you could tell it wasn't deep cleaned. I didn't look too hard, because sometimes not knowing is better. The bathroom was decently clean though. The staff was friendly and the location was great.
