“Spend a little more”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

This is a very inexpensive motel. We paid $64 and some change plus taxes. But, I had to work hard to get that rate. Desk clerk was very nice. The motel is a work in progress. What can I say. I checked for bed bugs like I do at all motels. Mattress and bedding clean but very thin. No hair dryer or breakfast. What is so sad is I paid $89.00 plus tax for my next motel and it was 18 months old and very nice. Fresh and modern w/ a pool and great breckfast. If you can spend an extra 20 to 25 dollars and see the difference you will agree. It says smoke free but, our room smelled of smoke and cig butts on ground outside door.

Thank you for your comments, we always enjoy the feedback. Red Roof Inn prides its self on offering a clean and comfortable rooms for a fair price as compaired to other area hotels for the same time period. A few things to consider when compairing hotels is, location, seasons and local events, because these things always factor into rates for hotels.

Thank you again and I hope you give us the opportunity to serve you again.

This is a good deal if you are a budget traveller. We don't like to waste alot of money staying overnight while travelling. Clean, comfortable, and a good price. There isn't a continental breakfast but they gave us a coupon for Sofia's House of Pancakes. That is a great place for breakfast!

This hotel is conveniently located just off Interstate 94. The rooms are neat and the bedding clean. The air-conditioning worked well and was very quiet. The room came with a small refrigerator, coffee maker and good size flat screen TV. There was no hair dryer in the room but when I asked at the main desk I was given one for the room.

There is no breakfast offered with this hotel but there are two choices close by. If you are in a hurry for a quick breakfast there is a McDonalds just one building away. If you have time for a sit down breakfast, treat yourself to Sophia's House of Pancakes just across the street.

This is definitely a budget hotel but it's location to other things in the area is great. There is a large shopping mall just down the road and several restaurants close by. It is only about a 10 to 15 minute drive into to St. Joseph where the area along Silver Beach is quite developed with shops, restaurants and activities not to mention just walking on the beach. However, many of the accommodations in St Joseph are much more expensive. So if you are looking for a clean place to stay at a price that will be kinder to your budget, this will work for you.

The hotel is a two-storage building without a gated entrance. But it was secure at night. The room is a little small, including the bath room. It's okay for budget travelers - you get what you paid for. No continental breakfast was available.

At Red Roof Inn we try to focus on the meaningful and not the excess that drives other hotels to charge higher rates, clean room, friendly staff and the best dollar to dollar value in the bussiness.

Thank you, it was great hearing from you.

I have to say, for 60 bucks a night, it's hard to ask for much more than what the Red Roof Inn at Benton Harbor had to offer. The neighborhood is slightly suspect, but overall, it was a HUGE value.

Pros:

- Clean rooms with a fridge, coffee pot and good-sized TV. It's nothing fancy, so don't expect it to be, but it was a place to stay and a great one. The room we stayed in (118) was very clean and neat. You can definitely tell that there have been a lot of repairs to the rooms; caulking, patched holes, lines in the ceiling and many others. But that's a GOOD thing!

- Wonderfully close to two AMAZING beaches (Silver Beach in St. Joseph & Jean Klock Park (maybe the most beautiful beach I've been to yet; although not many, it includes Manhattan Beach in California).

- Courteous staff was willing to help with whatever we needed, pointed us in the right direction and got us in and out in a hurry. Thank you!

Cons:

- The neighborhood was certainly different than St. Joseph. Benton Harbor is a bit impoverished to say the least so the location wasn't great despite being so close to the beaches. Being close to them was about the only positive when it came to the location. That and being close to shopping / restaurants.

- The outside is a little intimidating. Coming from North County, St. Louis, it wasn't anything absolutely shocking for me, but for those who may not be used to it, the appearance was a little "ghetto" so to speak. This all changed once we got in the room, but it's not a glamorous looking place by any means.

- The lobby was a little out of sorts. Ceiling was leaking in spots and it just seemed a little rough.

That's pretty much it for the cons. It was a Red Roof Inn, not a Ritz Carlton. For 59.99 a night, it was a wonderful experience and I'd be back in a heartbeat. I miss our little hotel room!

Our location is directly off the freeway and we work hard to keep a clean and safe enviroment for our guest. The lobby has recently went through a makeover and we are always in the middle of site improvements.

Thank you for the comments and may I say your little hotel room misses you too, so come back soon for a visit.

The Red Roof Inn is just off the highway at Exit #29. There's a McDonalds out by the road, and Meijer Superstore and gas station just down the road. It's a great place to stay over night when traveling or if in town for a wedding or another family event.

The staff is super friendly and helpful. You get a clean room, plenty of hot water all for a super price. They have AARP discount or a Sam's Club Discount.

I'll be staying here again in the future.

Room Tip: I prefer the west side lower level - close to the office and coffee machine. I'd say the west s...

This stay started as a stay at the motel6 across the street just because I had a corporate card discount, We got our room and within 5 minutes we were ready to leave, There were Crack Deals going on in the room next to us and alot of swearing and fighting, after 1 hour we said enough and whet across the street to the Red Roof Inn in Benton harbor. It was a totally different experience, Even our two dogs could fall asleep right away. After driving all over this country I have switched to Red Roof Inns . for my nightly stays away from home 4 nights a week. Even though I don't get a corporate price room I'll be glad to pay the 10-15 dollars extra for a clean quiet room to stay in and feel safe. Thank You Red Roof Inns Jay & Debra johnson

Room Tip: Rooms on North side have less noise from I-94
