“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

I really enjoyed my stay at this Red Roof Inn. I was able to have my dog with me and the rooms were extremely clean and well maintained. I felt comfortable because all the outside doors were locked except in the lobby and those are locked after a certain time. They provided you a "bagged breakfast" of oatmeal, an apple, and a bottle of water. The rates were more than reasonable. Will use them again in my further travels!

Room Tip: If you have a pet, the end rooms are more convenient when you need to take them out.

I booked this hotel because it was the closest and least expensive when going to the State Fair. Very friendly staff, laminate flooring, CLEAN rooms. Less expensive with none of the things I usually do not need in a hotel - no coffee pot (there is coffee in the lobby), no refrigerator, hair dryer. Just a clean room with a good price. Will definitely book for next year's fair.

I really like the new look for Red Roof. We chose this for it's location - right off 40 - easy to get to - and had a good nights stay. The floors in the rooms are laminate/hard wood with a bit of carpeting around the bed for comfort. The look and feel is clean and bright - the bathroom was clean - although the vanity area was small and the sink big - I have no complaints. The staff was friendly. There are lots of places to eat nearby - shopping nearby. Only one problem - the a/c didn't work too well - we couldn't get it adjusted...but we'll let the front desk know. We came to Raleigh for the night - and will probably stay here again. The girl at the front desk said that the breakfast is really more continental that full - and they recommend places to go for a bigger meal if you want that. The room is a great size - nicely appointed.

We got married on September 21 in Downtown Raleigh and we needed a place for our out of town family to stay. A lot of people were skeptical because they have had bad run ins with previous red roof inns but I can honestly say that this Red Roof is wonderful! The new upgrades they recently had are great! Hard wood floors, flat screen TVs, new bathroom fixtures everything was new!! The housekeeping staff was friendly, prompt and thorough. I was able to get a complementary bridal suite and it helped make getting dressed and getting hair and make up easy. Surrounding hotels were charging 189-200 for a night stay...and that was the group rate!! Kelly and the Red Roof helped our family have a comfortable nights stay without breaking the bank!! We will defiantly be staying again!! Thank you so much!!

Hallways looked like they haven't been vacuumed for a year, elevators looked skeptical, paint on the doors was chipping. Definitely should spend some time doing maintenance. Water pressure in shower was good. I only stayed one night for about 9 hours total. It was okay for this and the price was right, but would not want to stay here more than this.

Thank you for you for feedback I have shared your concerns my my maintenance and housekeeping staff. I am sorry that the halls were not clean while you were here, they are vacumned daily so I am sorry to hear that you found yours dirty, as far as some of the door frames being chipped, I agree that we do have some doors that need touched up but we have been running full and this cannot be done when there are so many guest in the hotel (don't want to get paint on anyones clothes), we are in the process of having the elevator stainless steel redone, I wish folks did not find it so tempting to want to take keys to it.
We strive very hard to make sure our guest have a pleasant stay with us, I hope next time you are in the area you will give us another try and that we can prove ourselves to you.

Stayed many times over the past year. Phyllis and other staff members have always been polite and very helpful. Recent renovations are also a plus. Glad I discovered a new place to stay. If there is a negative, it would be getting on Saunders St during rush hour.
