“Great motel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

We have been staying here for quite a few years now. It is always a clean place to stay and you are treated very well. Craig and Sharon are very helpful and always cheerful. I look forward to seeing them again next year.

I have stayed here several times since my son goes to WMU. It is nothing fancy but it is clean and a good price. I would recommend it. We actually tried a different hotel and it was awful. So we are going back to Red Roof Inn. Plus, they sent me a 15% coupon for the month of my birthday.

So I spent a week in Kalamazoo and I stayed at this property. This is the Red Roof Inn guys, so you are getting a typical hotel. Nothing fancy.

Although the rooms are average, there were two surprises: 1) The pillows were actually very plump and comfy and 2) the TV was a new flat screen with all the cool inputs so I could hook up my laptop.

The bath and shower were pretty average, but yet another surprise: Probably the best shower pressure in a very long time! Yup, I like to relax under a hot one!

What truly was cool was the over top, friendly service from the staff here. Beth at the check in was amazing, always ready to offer advice and help! Just ask her about late night food offerings in the area and get ready to be impressed. Also, I had left my wallet here, and Beth found it and had it ready for me at the front desk when I drove back (80 miles before I realized it). She also had found my favorite pair of shorts under the bed!

With great rates, easy location, plenty of parking and free wifi - you can't really go wrong with this spot! Its also pet friendly! We both enjoyed our stay! Thanks!

I always enjoy my stay at The Red Roof Inn. Entirely because of Sharon.Sharon makes sure that my room is clean and I get the same room every week if I have any problems Sharon makes sure she gets them taken care of. Sharon is the best hands down and that's why I frequent The Red Roof Inn.

No frills, no pool, very good WiFi free HBO. Clean rooms could have done a better job on shower but other than that I highly recommend. Front desk staff very friendly and knowledgeable and recommended a great place for breakfast which we went to before heading out. Overall good price and clean rooms we would definitely stay again.

Staff is very friendly. Rooms recently upgraded and are very nice. Free wi-fi with good speed.
I understand that the "other" Red Roof (east side of Kalamazoo) is not nearly as nice nor in as good a location (aka rowdier guests ....) so don't confuse the two. Location right next to WMU campus was very convenient for my purposes. Quite a few good take-out food places nearby, only one good place that delivered but the food from there was super, prices reasonable and delivery in under 30 minutes (Hunan Gardens). Beds are not posh but they are more than fine - AC is older, but worked just fine too. No pool, no central gathering place, no outside space to lounge about in, but a great place to stay when visiting for a purpose. I've stayed there twice and will do so again.

Room Tip: No elevator and no help with bags so if you have heavy luggage an upper floor can be a bit of work...
