We checked in to the Red Roof Inn for just one night when we were
driving through New Mexico recently. It was late so we just picked the
cheapest hotel we could find. You definitely get what you pay for.
The location is not a great part of town. The surroundings were very run
down and it was in an industrial area where there wasn't much around.
The only good thing was that it was right next to the highway so at
least we could make a quick escape.
As for the hotel itself, I was underwhelmed by the front desk agent who checked us in to say the least. We asked to be moved off the first floor, which seemed like a hassle for him to do. The rooms themselves are very outdated and there's a lot of wear and tear to the property in general. The paint was peeling, there were holes in the sheets, and the carpet looked like it hadn't been cleaned in decades. Our only solace was that the shower and sinks were clean. The beds actually weren't that bad in terms of comfort, but it wasn't really much of a saving grace compared to everything else.
Breakfast in the morning was disappointing. They essentially had coffee, cereal, and some pieces of fruit. They also charge you $1.50 security fee automatically when you check in that you then have to ask them to take off the following morning. That's a pretty bad sign I would say.
Probably better just to steer clear of this property, even if it is cheap.
