I stayed here after an ice storm prompted me to pull off the highway for the night. The young woman behind the front desk was friendly and down-to-earth, the rates reasonable, and the room (a queen bed) was clean with a great, clever set-up for a small space.
Another bonus feature -- you can open the windows to get a fresh exchange of air in the room -- not something to be taken for granted. (Windows at at many higher-end properties cannot be opened, as we know. And many of these properties suffer from sick-building syndrome, leaving guests feeling ever-so-fatigued in the stale air like that of a long flight.)
My only suggestion? "Red Roof Inn Cleans Green". Switch over to non-chemical, natural cleaning products (studies show they're more effective -- and less expensive -- at killing germs, bacteria, mold and dirt) and dump the chemical cleaners that are a big health-hazard for folks with allergies and asthma -- an estimated 30% of today's population.
Not only will you make your guests more comfortable, it's good for business. Did you know occupancy rates are off the charts at upscale, expensive hotels offering "allergy-friendly" "pure rooms", as they're called.
So yeah, Red Roof Inn, lead the budget-hotel pack and offer "Live Like a Billionaire, Stay on a Budget Book Your Pure-Green Room at Red Roof Inn". I'll be there!
Bottom line: Great stay, I'd stay again.
