“My room smelled”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

The room would have been OK, except it smelled of smoke and had two small dead bugs in the corner of the bathroom floor. I asked if they had a machine to clear out the smell and they offered spray. I should have requested a different room when I first walked into it.

rooms were clean & some amenities have been update but the beds are not comfortable Small refrigerators are a much needed upgrade to all rooms.

Room Tip: not facing the road is always quieter

We've stayed here in past and it seems to be going downhill..however for the price & a one night stay it serves the need. My main complaint is that the beds are too hard & the matress has very little give. also, the room was like an oven when we went in,,,they had heat turned way up..I opened door ant it was only 35 out but still took about 15 min. to cool it down. If every room was that way they are wasting a LOT of energy.

Thank you for your comments regarding your stay with us at the Red Roof Inn of Rockford.
It is always great to see what our guests are saying about us.

I am sorry the heat was turned too high in your guest room. I will share your comments with our staff to ensure the temperatures are set at the proper level. Yes, this is a waste of energy and is uncomfortable to have to open the door to cool the room down. I appreciate your comments regarding this and it is helpful when working and coaching our staff.

We appreciate your comments and hope that you will again use us when traveling in the Rockford area.

Sincerely,

Steve Marsceau

We had a one night stay at the Red Roof Inn in Rockford in January 2012. I did not want to stay at this hotel but our travel companions insisted. The price was great. There are plenty places to eat nearby and very close to the airport. The check in was fast. We parked right outside of our room. The rooms were extremely small but all we needed was a bed and a shower. The rooms were very clean and smelled good. No alarm clocks in the room and we didn't get our 4am wake up call because they had put it in the computer as 4pm by mistake. Luckily we had set our phone alarm also. We will stay here again especially since the Rockford Airport is now having direct flights to tropical destinations. Saves us the hassle of Chicago Ohare.

Thank you for your comments regarding your stay in February at our Red Roof Inn of Rockford.
We are happy to hear that you had a comfortable stay with us, and that we are convenient to the Rockford Airport when traveling. It does help when trying to stay out of the busy Chicago area.

I am sorry there was no clock in your guest room. I will share your comments with housekeeping and maintenance to ensure supplies are in the rooms. I will also share the comments of the missed 4am wake up call and to stress the importance of entering the correct time into the system. I am glad that you were not delayed for your flights out of Rockford.

Thank you again for your comments, and we hope to see you again at Red Roof Inn when traveling through the Rockford area.

Sincerely,

Steve Marsceau

We wanted a cheap place to sleep on a road trip near Chicago and picked this motel based on reviews that said it was a good value for an overnight stay. They were correct. The check-in was quick, room was clean, there were plenty of restaurants nearby and the place was quiet. The downside was very firm beds, no in-room coffee maker or hair dryer, and no continental breakfast (all of which we knew about beforehand, and is typical for Red Roof). Also, the heater was noisy. It was better to sleep in a slightly cold room than leave it on all night. Wi-fi worked well. For a family of 4 or more it might be a better deal to stay somewhere a little more expensive but has a free breakfast, plus the rooms would be a bit small for 4 people.

Thank you for staying with us at the Red Roof Inn of Rockford, IL. We appreciate you taking the time to share your comments with us regarding your stay.

You mentioned you missed the in room coffee. Our superior King rooms offer a larger room, in room coffee, and a micro-fridge. Perhaps in your future travels you may want to try our upgraded room with the extra amenities. We also offer hairdryers and irons at the front desk for our guests as well.

I will share your comments with our staff as they appreciate comments from guests to see how they are doing and how they can better the property.

We hope you will again select our Red Roof Inn of Rockford when traveling to the area in the future.

We stayed here as a 1/2 way stop on our trip. The hotel was in a great location and very easy to find. We got to park right in front of our room (which was kind of weird at first). It was very clean. The hotel was cheap and really worth the cost. The Wi-fi was really fast too. It is a perfect place to stay.

We got in late and left early, but this hotel was exactly what we needed. The check-in was quick. The room was fine. We could park right in front of our room. The location was convenient. I would stay here again.
