I stay here about once a month and I am always happy with the service. Bobbie was proactive on a reservation for me that was a nice refreshing change from some of the service these days in business. Although the hotel is not up to date yet (it's under construction) the hallways and entry ways are still pretty bad..the rooms... More

I booked this based on the Trip Advisor Rating as we had never stayed in a Red Roof Inn before. The hotel is Pet Friendly (doesn't seem to show on Trip Advisor but does on Red Roof website) and does not charge an additional fee for pets. The prior reviews have generally been accurate.

I wanted someplace close to the freeway as I was just stopping for the night. The room was nice but absolutely freezing when I arrived. Nice TV; Free breakfast was so-so. Common areas were dirty looking especially front entrance. Carpet kind of icky in halls; no trim between wall and carpet and paint kind of ran onto carpet. Front grass... More

It was very interesting. The desk representative was not in a uniform, looking unprofessional. The hotel was run-down and maybe under renovation. The toilet ran to refill every 15 minutes and the air conditioner sounded like an airplane on the tarmac warming up. The pool was really nice. The morning breakfast was not appealing so we ate at Perkins. With... More

slightly seedy motel with a salt of the earth clientele. Little worried when we pulled up to reception and there was a homeless dude right out the front door picking butts out the ashtray.. but the rooms were functional with pretty comfortable beds ( yes, i did a THOROUGH bedbug check!) and large room. AC in working order, older shower/tub... More

Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Staff was very friendly and informative. Came with a breakfast that stayed open till ten which was nice for sleeping in. The lady at the desk Bobbie was incredibly nice. I would recommend this place to other people visiting the area. One employee was rude however I believe her name was Lacy. She was... More

The room I stayed in was new and felt fresh and clean. After a long trip, it was refreshing to find a hotel with a nice bed and clean bathroom. This place is definitely modern with wood floors and new paint.

So, we'd never been to a Red Roof Inn, but I was getting tired of the motels charging $25 a night for a 5# dog. The staff won us over, we called to check on what was in area, she was very helpful. Pets stay free. Room was clean, linoleum type floors which I prefer to carpet, not high end... More

The room was clean and comfortable. The beds are real low and that makes the room look outdated, but they were comfortable. Bathroom was very clean. The entry door could use a little fixing up. The internet worked well. The room had a fridge and microwave. No coffee maker, but they had coffee in the lobby. The breakfast was poor.... More
