I had a bad experience the first time I stayed here, but after being contacted the manager have gone back to stay every time I'm in the area. Generally, the rooms are reliably clean, in decent condition, and quiet--which is all you can expect for the price. The clientele can be a bit rough, but traveling alone as a woman... More

My experience with hotels in Durham is that nice hotels are generally expensive and inexpensive ones tend to be not so nice. The trick then is to find that sweet spot where the hotel is nice and affordable at the same time. After being priced out of my usual favorite, we took advantage of my wife's corporate discount and found... More

Even though the light above the sink was not working and I had a hard time getting an eyelash out of my eye, the front desk lady was nice and listened attentively which I appreciate very much. This is a rare property at budget price which does not have a hard time letting go of old and dirty carpet, there... More

Environment is so so, a little noisy because it's pretty close to the highway. The beds are a bit small to co-sleep with kids. There is no continental breakfast provided. If you have a tight schedule, this might end up taking some extra time to get ready in the morning. Service was OK. They were nice and flexible.

We booked a previous hotel on hotels.com (Durham Skyland Magnuson Hotel). This hotel looked like a hotel out of a scary movie. We cancelled our reservation and drive to Red Roof. Tasia greeted us with the most pleasant smile. She provided world class customer service to myself and my family. She was warm and friendly and made our stay at... More

I stopped in after traveling all day, I was tired and searched and found this place while on the rood. Very nice hotel and it was close to the highway and quick access to gas stations and stores. It was the perfect location so that I could continue my trip the next day.

We were concerend of our neighbors at first that were smoking weed, and had about 30 people coming in and out but it seemed to quiet down towards the evening. Our... More

Found these lovely bugs on my pillow when I woke up. After a month of waiting on Red Roof to get back to me about this incident, they said no bugs were found in the room so nothing would come of this. On the other hand I have stayed here before with no issues.

We just needed a one-night stopover with our 2 small dogs. I can't say anything really bad, but it was just the most Spartan room ever, very dated and bare. The flooring was vinyl (I suppose because it is pet-friendly), so you had to wear shoes of some kind. There is no food onsite whatsoever but Texas Roadhouse is just... More
