This motel was a disappointment. It was quite evident that maintenance has not been done on a regular basis. There was an issue with the air conditioner. Although it cooled, the air was very humid. The management said they were walking for a shunt to make repairs. The room had not been very thoroughly cleaned; dust was along the corners... More

We stayed here one night while in Knoxville. For $60/night (w/ tax), we thought it was a good value. Definitely not anything fancy, but right on par w/ other budget motels. My husband, daughter, and I swam for quite a while in the pool and really enjoyed it.

The hotel staff were very helpful. The room had minor problems. The bathtub floor was scratchy and cracking and there were stains all over the desk chair. Other than that, the room was decent to sleep for a night.

My daughter were ready for a break from the road. We booked the Red Roof Inn and were delighted with the front desk service, cleanliness of the room and the quiet atmosphere. Sure, the rooms and especially the bathroom could use updating, but for the price, this is a gem. Conveniently located just off of the highway, near Whole Foods.

We stayed one night while traveling. I know it gets ho hum reviews. It's a ho hum place. The staff are all very nice. The rooms a just a little rough around the edges. Nothing major. We had some frayed carpet and some peeling paint. These places get remodeled every so often, and it's probably coming up soon. The amount... More

Before I start my review, I want to set the stage. The third party site I booked through had this hotel rated at 3 stars. Booking is non-refundable. Now, let's play a game. Which one of these things is not like the other? A- Hyatt Place B- Hilton Garden Inn C- Red Roof Inn. If you chose Red Roof Inn... More

This was never a 4 star place but we had stayed here twice last year and found it comfortable, reasonably maintained and fairly priced. Things have changed. My mate traveling with her friend stayed here based on our prior experience. This stay; broken security locks, significant wear and tear on the furnishings and a wake-up call by insect bites around... More

Before I rant a bit, I just want to say that the staff at this Red Roof was outstanding and went beyond what was expected. Realize that this is a big hotel complex that definitely needs some work in the hallways. The rooms were not bad except for the fact that ours smelled like dog. We were originally on the... More
