Lynnae has made my "home away from home" as comfortable and pleasant as she could! She always goes out of her way to make me feel welcome. She signed me up immediately for the Redi Card rewards program, thus I have earned several night's stays already. She is quick with local information such as directions to the coin laundry and...

The Red roof was clean and updated. The outdoor pool was really well maintained. There are no laundry services, but there is a Laundromat about a block down the road. The staff was very helpful, but the breakfast was fairly lame and there is a very active train track on the back side of the property that you could hear... More

We stayed at this hotel for just one night. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable which in my opinion are the two most important things. Sadly the train noise did wake me several times but didn't bother my husband. We were disappointed to not have a refrigerator in our room. All staff we encountered were very friendly.... More

Really clean and nice, the staff were wonderful. For me the rating is strictly location related. I'm here on business, and this place was booked by my company. I would never have chosen this hotel based on the location by the railroad tracks. I woke up every time the train went past. I am writing this at 5:30 AM, because... More

I've stayed at Red Roof a few times and have always had a great experience. Allie helped me out both times and was extremely helpful! I was very pleased with her energetic personality and her willingness to help out. The rooms are always nice and clean. I have never had a problem there.

My wife, and I and our dog, Rocky, were guests at the Red Roof Inn & Suites for approx 5 weeks. Upon making the initial reservation, Lynnae immediately signed us up for the Redi-Card, which earned us 3 free nights before our stay was over! Thank you Lynnae!

The rooms are nice. A bit noisy with the train but didn't bother us. Breakfast is not even worth mentioning. Our biggest issue was that I called a week ahead to make sure the pool would be open which was the only reason we picked this hotel and was told yes it would be opened. We got there and went...

I wasn't clear about this review since we have an outdoor pool, which doesn't open until May 30th every year . We never would close our pool if something was in it, we would remedy the situation. We have a hot breakfast. Then I looked at the date of the stay which was September 2015. Last year our pool was... More

Rooms are newly refurbished it seems with a modern style. The beds are very comfortable. The rooms were clean and tidy, welcoming after a day of travel. Location is close to the railroad tracks, but the soft low rumble of a slow moving train was calming in the middle of the night. Lobby is located in the center of the... More
