“Great staff!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Kudos to the staff. Front desk staff went above and beyond.
Room was good. There was construction so that was the only downside (bathroom was not accessible in the lobby area). While it is probably a good value for Austin, I've stayed at other Red Roof Inns in other cities for slightly better price. I would consider staying her again!

Room was clean, the bed comfortable, and the staff was pleasant and helpful. The hotel is showing some signs of age but they were renovating the lobby while I was there. I don't think you can expect more for the price.

Stayed at this Red Roof Inn due to its location. Checked in and upon entering the room walked in on a guy who was already occupying the room, so was given a room across the hall. The price was reasonable but be aware that the place is going thru renovations so if your sensitive to fumes and a dust go elsewhere. Like another reviewer I noticed what I considered to be illegal if not suspicious activity in the parking lot and hotel lobby. These young hoodlums would go from sitting in their car in the parking lot to the hotel lobby lurking about and texting on their cell phones. It was clear that they were not hotel guests however never felt threatened or was bothered by them. The hotel does have security that walk the parking lot late in the evening. The staff were friendly and helpful. Sabrina at the front desk was very friendly and most pleasant to deal with and a true asset to the hotel. The room was very spacious and clean.

Room Tip: FYI I believe the renovations started on the 4th floor and working their way down, so if your lookin...

Stayed at this Red Roof for 5 weeks while working in Austin. Very reasonably priced. Staff is hard working and very nice. Gen Mgr was very helpful and concerned that every person has an enjoyable stay. Sure, if you compare this to a more exclusive hotel, you may have some gripes, but, you'll be saving $50 to $80 a night. So, Thanks Red Roof, great job!

Arrived early, and was no problem, all the staff was very nice, and sweet. but the rooms were GROSS! there were brown stains on the sheets on EACH bed, and a black hand print on the wall.
Beds were SO uncomfortable no one in my family got any sleep, and the pillows were horrible. bathroom was nice, good quality shampoo, but still might wanna bring your own.
You could hear everything so easily in rooms next door, kinda annoying.
Tv had horrible boring channels. And they do NOT serve continental breakfast.
Not a place to bring your kids if you ask me... There were some creepy people staying there, but over all we will not be going back, but the price was cheep for one night.

Arrived at the hotel after booking online as a last minute check in. Parked next to a truck, while sitting in my car 2 guys walk up, to my amazment I witness what I believe was a drug deal (guy walks to truck next to me, they talk for several mins, guy walks back to other guy at hotel hands him cash, truck leaves). Check in which was easy, get my key and head up to the room. Walk in the room and decide to check out 5 mins after I walked in. Beds were about 1 foot off the ground, sat down on the bed and was practically sitting on the floor i didnt see how i was supposed to sleep. The beds were not comfortable at all they didnt even look clean enough to lay down in. This hotel is the perfect definition of a "roach motel". Did not feel safe due to several people walking around who looked like bums or meth heads. Luckily was able to check out without paying any kind of fees. Stayed about 2 miles down the road at the Wyndam Garden hotel (35 @ woodward), spent a few extra dollars for nice beds and safety. Would not recommend the Red Roof inn to anyone. spend a few extra dollars and go somewhere else!

Room Tip: go somewhere else!

Grounds were very clean and since we arrived late we felt good to see the security guard on hand. The only attendant was Charla and I have to say she was very helpful and accommodating to our immediate needs. The hotel is conveniently located. We will definitely stay there again.
