The room was nicer that I thought it would be. Everything looked updated and clean. No funny smells in the room. Bathroom was updated and very nice and clean. (no mold) Very convenient to the college and staff was very pleasant. Free Wi-Fi. Complimentary coffee/tea in the lobby. Would consider this place again.

Bed was very comfy, bathroom large, everything clean and new and in good repair, flat screen tv, fridge, microwave and laminated flooring with bedside rugs (much cleaner). Not sure if all rooms have fridges and microwaves, but you could ask when booking. Appears to... More

Not many places in the room that you canbe comfortable to watch TV.. Red Roof traditionally don't offer breakfast. BUT due to the location, there is no... More
