Red Roof Inn Tallahassee - University
Ranked #16 of 55 Hotels in Tallahassee
Reviewed July 27, 2012

I was driving through Florida and looking for a rest area to catch a few hours of sleep, but instead I saw a huge billboard advertising rooms at this hotel for $40. For that price I thought why not? Overall I'll say it was worth 40 bucks, but not much more than that. My room was pretty worn looking, but pretty clean. The bed was also very clean which is the most important part of the stay to me. The AC was very loud, but it did keep the room cool. The TV worked well and the free internet was nice. I didn't see any bugs, but if i had I wouldn't have been too surprised. What more can I say... for a few hours of sleep and a shower at $40 it gave me what I had hoped for.

When I tell you that I am the LAST guy to book a room at a Red Roof Inn, I'm not kidding! Had a bad experience about 10 years ago and I decided I'd rather sleep in the car than another Red Roof Inn. When looking for a hotel for my daughter's graduation from FSU in April, my wife decided she couldn't pass up the price at this hotel. Told her "Enjoy it, I'll be in the car!" Well, kicking and screaming, she dragged me into the room. Stuck my head inside the room, looked around, and immediately ran out the door! I had to check the hotel sign to make sure I was in the right hotel! HOLY COW! She told me the rooms had been upgraded and she wasn't kidding. Neat, clean and very inviting . Great beds, nice workstation, fast internet, nice shower with good pressure and a quiet atmosphere make this hotel a good value for the money. The only down side is the fact that this hotel is a little further away from FSU's campus than most hotels, but the lower price reflects that. This was a nice hotel, and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

As most older hotels, this one could use some updating in the bathroom but over all it was a pleasant stay. Mostly updated, quiet, staff was ok and the place was clean.

First impressions walking in the front, Clarence was professional, and set the mood for a smooth check-in to an ultraclean, sweet smelling double bed room with thick thirsty towels. TV's big enough to see. We booked a standard discounted room, so I strolled into the front office to get my hot water for tea, morning coffee
(Good) and next around the other end for ice.

we have stayed here every time we go see our daughter in FSU and have never been disappointed. It is very simple but very clean and the staff, especially Latisha is wonderful. The cleaning staff as well is very friendly. The first time we had a Superior suite and it was very updated and nice. the other times we have had the basic room, but they have always been just as nice. it is located next to Crackel barrel as well as many other places to eat such as Sushi restaurants, Krispy Kreme, Mexican food, local sports bar etc etc. The highway is just a hop away.
definitely a simple but great hotel.

Room Tip: For a couple of dollars more get a Superior suite. worth the money.

We had a group of 48 people staty here for two nights, after reserved accomodations at another hotel were unacceptable. Within one hour of reserving the rooms, at 1:30 in the morning, room keys and assignments were completed and ready when we arrived. Staff was very courteous,especially Chad. Rooms were clean. Property well maintained. Would definitely stay here again

Clean and comfortable. Even the grounds are clean. This place looks like the staff care about it. And it is reasonably priced. Can't say enough about how nice this place is.
