The Red Roof Inn Cedar Rapids is not a luxury hotel by any stretch of imagination -- the building has an old and tired look and feel, but the bed was comfortable, the staff was fine, and the price was right. For those who don't have a mobile device for accessing the internet, there are a couple of computers in the lobby area. The continental breakfast left somewhat to be desired, but there is a Perkins nearby. I wouldn't mind staying here again.

Room Tip: I would pick a room on the Western end of the building because that is the furthest from the freeway, so probably quieter.

I came to town for a concert and didn't arrive to the hotel until well after midnight. The staff was very nice and accommodating with all of my questions about directions in the morning. The room met all of my expectations and more. It was clean and the bathroom had a hair dryer. The low price is what drew me there and was located amongst others and restaurants. Right off of the interstate on the south side of Cedar Rapids. Would highly recommend for an overnight stay.

Room Tip: Did not eat there b/c I slept in and had I had no room service

I chose red roof inn, because they accepted animals in the rooms, which is great and convenient, my boyfriend and I were relocating from Florida to Minnesota, and this was the second Red roof Inn that we stayed at on our trip. Room was clean and cozy, within walking distance you will find a gas station and burger king, so no hassle of getting into the car to find even the small necessity.
Large grassy area in front of hotel is great, but watch for the rabbits, my dog is a chaser and it came as a surprise to me when she tugged to run after something i hadn't even noticed.
check out is later that most hotels too, which is great.
The only item i didn't find in the room was a small refrigerator, which would have been nice to cool drinks down for the road.
Overall, If i ever go back to visit Cedar Rapids, I will def stay at this Red Roof Inn
Ps. Front desk lady was very friendly and helpful, and directed me to many restaurants in the area. The service she provides was 5 Star

This was Stop #5 on my move to relocate. Traveling from Northern Maine my dog and I both found the weather to just too hot especially after the A/C in the car stopped working. Upon our arrival at Red Roof Inn in Cedar Rapids, IowaI found the motel staff to be just so friendly and accommodating, they gave me 2 bottles of ice cold water after hearing how sick my dog was getting from the heat they also gave her (my dog) a milk bone then they gave me an assortment of brochures of local restaurants willing to make deliveries.. the BEST part is the front desk staff even issued me an ethernet cable to make for a quicker Wi-Fi connections (saving me tons of stress tapping my toes and fingers just waiting.)

The motel room was ok, not so with the carpet as it needed shampooing, the rest of the room was very clean, the parking lot is well lit at night, Area gas stations and restaurants are easy accessed. Also if you have you dog with you there is a big area of grass to exercise your dog directly in front of the motel.

Came for a dockdogs competition and picked this hotel because of the good reviews, good value and free pets. we had 3 labs with us. Room was nicely remodeled with laminate floors. pool was clean and quiet. we enjoyed our stay and the staff was very friendly and accomodating. the manager even overheard us concerned about our dogs pads on the hot black top at our event site and told us that they had just remodeled and had rolls of carpet we could take and use. everyone at our event was very thankful for that!!! stay here.
