Stayed here one night while moving our daughter to college. It needs a lot of attention. The room is very dirty, carpets feel dirty under your feet. I don't think housekeeping ever looks behind the bathroom door since there is a lot of mold and dirt. Water knob in the tub has mold under it that you can see. The... More

My husband and I stayed the night here and found it quite clean and comfortable. The front desk clerks were friendly, the room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. For the price, we were very satisfied.

The room was surprisingly spacious and clean-ish. The floor had been vacuumed but only in the main pathways of the room. I discovered the blow dryer in the bathroom did NOT work AFTER I got out of the shower with wet hair! However, I was pleased that the front desk produced a working blow dryer literally within just a minute... More

I like Red Roof Inns. They are a very cheap brand, but what they promised, the deliver and I like that. The property is not brilliant, but it's comfortable. The staff is very courteous, the wifi works and it is very well located. Breakfast is VERY basic, but again, you can't expect much for what you pay to stay here.... More

This hotel was disgusting. There were marks on the walls and ceiling, and the room was not clean at all. Toenail clippings on the floor, there was trash from a previous guest in the trash can, and the bathroom had trash from a previous guest on the floor. WiFi didn't work, and the AC workes, but not very well.

The hotel is right off the freeway. There's lots of restaurants and stores nearby. The lobby was clean. Front desk staff was nice. There's no elevator so if you're upstairs you're taking the stairs. Not a lot of parking. The rooms were nice and clean. Plenty of channels on the tv. Room.also had a microwave and fridge.

Having stayed at a few Red Roof Inns, I took a chance and did not preview the room. Initially, the lobby and hallways looked acceptable, as well as the room. There had been Some updating in the room.
