We stayed her in a bind when our flight from LGA was delayed until the next day and needed a last minute room.
After calling 6+ places, this was the only hotel with rooms and we paid $225 for a "suite". First impression was not good when we pulled up in the taxi in a neighbourhood I wouldn't typically think of staying in. Check-In took longer than I would have liked with my identification and VISA info, but the colleague was friendly enough and seemed to be just following a very manual process.
The hotel itself seemed a bit rough, small, not a lot of rooms, and definitely not something we were thrilled about for over $200 for 6 hours. We definitely felt taken advantage of considering we checked-in at 11pm and were gone by 5am, so this room was clearly not going to be rented out for that night yet we were charged what seemed like ALOT. The room was a suite I suppose with 2 beds and a kitchenette, perhaps worth the full rate if someone had a family of 4 and was spending the full time in the room. Bed was comfy enough, and we got a decent 4.5 hour sleep for what it's worth, but at almost $50 an hour.
Anyway, I see other reviews with opposing opinions, so maybe I just feel slighted due to our circumstances and the ridiculous rate we were charged. I have had generally positive experiences in other Red Roof Inn locations in the past.
