“Pretty bad”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

The only reason I'm giving 2 stars is that the staff were friendly and they accept pets. Otherwise...where do I start...thin bedsheets, grimy-looking bedspread, dingy dated room, cheap mattresses, and some questionable-looking characters checking in at all hours of the night (probably why the clerk stays behind plexiglass after 11PM).
At least they're replacing the carpets, but the smell of the carpet adhesive was overwhelming and the windows don't open so it was a terrible night's sleep. The room had a fridge but I don't think it had been defrosted for years as there was a 3" layer of frost covering the back wall. Not the worst place I've ever stayed, but pretty close.

I have stayed at this Red Roof Inn on a number of occasions when traveling East from Wisconsin for dog events. It's a great place to stay when traveling with dogs, the rooms are basic plus (no hair dryer, but I did have a fridge and microwave) and clean. There's grass on the Menard's side for walking dogs - if you stay with dogs, please be a clean quiet guest so we all continue to have this privilege! I got exactly what I expected for the very reasonable rate - and the soap at Red Roof is my favorite, LOL!

Room Tip: First floor, Menard's side is closest to grass for walking dogs.

I recently stayed At Red Roof Inn Elkhart, Indiana. My stay was rather comforting They have a great staff there. I wasn't able to catch all names of the stuff but I would like to say a special thank you to Amy, Nancy, Marry, Alicia, Tara, Angie, Wanda, and Standish for making my stays pleasant at the Red Roof Inn. Very polite at front desk and very clean and smelling fresh rooms. Although I would like to add remodeling or updating would do a lot of good at your hotel. Starting with the televisions.

I stayed at the Red Roof Inn in Elkhart, IN 2 times in December 2012. The location was very convienant for me as an over the road trucker. I found my room to be pleasantly clean and inviting. And five stars to the staff that made me feel "welcome and not so alone". Kudos to Mary and Kurtis!!!!! If I ever get back to the Elkhart area, I would definately stay there again. maintenance640@yahoo.com
