“Okay and Inexpensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

The hotel is convenient to I81 and was half the price of the other hotels in the area. It is obviously a favorite of pet owners. The carpets are very stained but the room was large and the bed was clean and comfortable. I would not stay with a young child and bring something to wear on your feet in the room. The staff is very nice and they have a machine for coffee, cappuccino, hot chocolate, and tea that's 24/7. There's also a gas station on the way back to 81 with very good gas prices.

We chose this Red Roof Inn because of its location, right off route 81, and because they welcome pets. I also looked at previous reviews and it sounded okay.
What a perfect place for us! For a budget motel, it could not have been nicer! Rooms are spotlessly clean, very roomy and comfortable. Indoor pool, isn't that nice? Lovely continental breakfast, nice little breakfast area. Coffee, expresso, tea, 24 hrs a day!
For the price, you can't beat it...sometimes when we've traveled with our small dog, we have been forced to stay in some pretty tacky places, or given the tackiest rooms in the place. Not so at this Red Roof Inn...It is new, sparkling clean, quiet...everything you could want for an overnight stay...

Room Tip: We asked for first floor because we had the dog. Being near the side door is helpful for walking he...

Stayed here mid-July 2014 for one night as we traveled from RI to FL. Chose it because it was right off the highway. Got a decent price ($60 after taxes) booking direct through Red Roof. It's sole purpose for us was as a place to sleep between full days of driving, and it was perfect for that. Room was a comfortable size, and clean. Sheets were a little thin, but also clean, and the bed was comfortable enough. Breakfast was pretty minimal, but good enough to get us going. Automated coffee machine gave a decent product. We do this drive a couple of times a year, and I'm glad to have found an affordable option on this stretch of highway (which doesn't have loads to choose from). We will probably stay here again in the future,

I would rate this hotel as very average. Yes - the price was good at 54.99 (thru Orbitz) but the room was a bit threadbare looking. Carpet seriously needing replacing. Bed was comfortable but on the hard side.

One big negative during my stay - I used the in room hair dryer and upon turning it on, it shot sparks into the air - thank goodness it was nowhere near my hair or it certainly would have been a disaster. Of course, I shut it off immediately and reported it to the front desk. It was still smoldering and smoking! They let me use a hair dryer in the next (unoccupied) room which I used very cautiously.

Breakfast - not so great. Carb heavy and very little protein. I suggest they consider adding maybe some hard boiled eggs, yogurt cups, etc. The fresh fruit consisted of bananas only and they were so green, they would have been almost impossible to peel and eat.

One more quick tip - if you are visiting this hotel from out of state, be aware that the intersection thru which you return to I-81 is a "no turn on red light". Don't do it!! I got stopped and now have to pay a $91 fine. I'm quite sure they target out of state license plates.

Anyways, I guess this hotel was fine for a 1 night stay - but not sure I would return there after the near disaster with the hair dryer.

Dear Guest,
I seriously apologize for the hair dryer. We have send it back to supplier. We have them installed for over two years and this is the only unfortunate incident has been reported. I will make sure that house keepers check them daily. I thank you for taking your valuable time to report it. We will work harder to improve our quality.
Also your suggestions for the breakfast selection will be taken to ownership. We are an economy brand and try to offer the best within the budget range of guests and owners.
I hope that your overall experience will atleast consider us for your next trip.

We always stay at Red Roof Inns because we travel with our little dog. This on hasn't been redone yet like most of them have. It was clean and comfortable. There was a breakfast buffet with enough to get you going unlike most at Red Roof. Walls were a bit thin, but if guess were sleeping it wouldn't have been an issue at all.

During our move cross country with our pets, Red Roof Inn was our third overnight stop. It's challenging traveling with pets (we only do it if we absolutely have to) and we always dread it. Red Roof Inn is pet friendly, so we booked a reservation with them (we've stayed at other RRI's with our pets before and had a good experience). This RRI had a good sized room and was nicely decorated. They knew we had our dogs, so they placed us on the first floor at the end of the hall near the door (much appreciated). The morning breakfast area was clean and well supplied. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had a very nice stay and would stay here again.

Room Tip: Tell them if you have pets with you...they will place you on the first floor.
