We drove up to see Cuyahoga Nat'l Park with our dog. We had a nice clean room for a super reasonable price. I'm irked with reviewers who hold economy priced hotels to the standards of hotels twice the price. For under $60, we had a quiet stay on a comfortable bed in a std King room. There's no breakfast offered,... More

Checked into the Red Roof Akron for an overnight while on a college travel trip. Staff was friendly & helpful. However, first room assigned had a bed not made, the room smelled of smoke, and no towels in the bathroom. (When making the reservation I had requested a non-smoking, quiet room; expected it to be clean.) Went back down to... More

The Internet is out. 2nd red roof inn in as many days with this problem. Tech support not helpful. Customers are promised free wifi and they are not delivering on that promise. May not be coming back to a red roof anytime soon. It costs too much not to have wifi.

Service was surly from time of check in. Any questions asked seemed to really irritate her. Needed location or would not have stayed. Also sketchy area, Room needed in depth cleaning. Surface areas barely ok.

Rooms look like they have been updated recently and look modern, which is really nice. The floors in our room felt a little grimy, so we wore our shoes in our room. There is a Walmart next door, which was really convenient. We did check in at almost 5AM and asked for a later checkout, but only noon was granted.... More

Bedspread was grossly dirty. I get that bedspreads are generally not clean, but this was covered in spots. Blanket had cigarette burn holes, room had bad odor. 100% non smoking hotel, but obviously someone had smoked and staff didn't remove smell or replace bedding. No hair dryer; was advised only superior rooms include hair dryer; never had that issue at... More
