I stayed at a Red Roof Inn many years ago, and swore I would never do it again. This hotel appeared to have upgraded room photos on the website so we decided to give it a try... We opted for Superior King Room with a microwave and a refrigerator which were very important to us. The laminate floor is a smart and clean idea for a hotel. The room was spacious and perfect for our one night stay.. .
The pool received a new heater this week, and the pool is a lovely bonus for this hotel. When we arrived, a pool birthday party was in progress but we could still use the pool, and it worked out perfectly for all concerned. There are lots of pool towels. There is no hot tub.
The vending machines sell soda for $1.75 and chips for $1. The hotel is located across the street from a mall, and has several restaurant options adjacent to the hotel. There is a free breakfast which includes juice, milk, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, bagels, cream cheese,, hard boiled eggs, apples, oranges, possibly toaster waffles. It was more than sufficient. There is coffee in the lobby throughout the day which was so nice! Check in/ out was easy and accurate! There was an extra charge for the room safe but this was removed as we did not use the safe.
Previous reviews are correct in that the hotel is on a busy street, with lots of tire squealing on Saturday nights. The room heater is noisy enough to block out the noise of the ice machine, and clanging doors. It will not, however, block out the screams of children running in the hallways. When we could not take it any longer we called the front desk, and the staff member knew exactly what we were referring to as she had received several complaints about the same guests. The staff member had already spoken to this group 20 minutes earlier apparently, and she assured me that she would take care of it. The staff at this hotel are very competent and true to their word as they fixed this issue.
The only area that I would suggest improvement is the wifi which is slow probably due to high volume use. It was a bit faster at 5 am compared to in the evening. The website shows a computer and printer in the lobby. This computer requires a credit card to use, has a minimum $3 charge, and printing is 50 cents per sheet.
Overall I was very impressed with the value and cleanliness at this hotel, and the attentive front desk staff I would have no issues returning again in the future.
