“It's all about "value"...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2012

This place is pretty close to home, so I've only stayed there twice, but I'd have to rate it as a bargain.

Typical of a Red Roof, the rates are low and the quality of the rooms exceed expectations. The staff was perfectly helpful and efficient, too.

It's an easy-off/easy-on location from the Thruway, and there are many restaurants within a mile or two.

Clearly, Red Roof is not a luxury chain, but they are remarkably consisitent in giving you a lot more than expected for your money. (I've spent > twice as much on utter dumps.)

What a great find. Nice rooms, great price and very clean. Prefer my own pillow, but got a great nights sleep and the staff great. Right off the highway. Great restaurant Delmonico's right next door.

Room Tip: King room is awesome IF you only have two people

Hamilton College is such an amazing place, you are very lucky to have a student there! We feel even luckier that we get to be your home away from home when visiting your student. It is amazing the milestones that we have shared with our families that have students in colleges around town. We appreciate that you pointed out we are very clean! My team and I always joke that we have a big palace that we are responsible for taking care of and our guests are to be treated like kings and queens. Thank you again for your review!

Stay here regularly for business as I have a customer in the area, and am never disappointed. The rooms are typical Red Roof rooms, always clean and well laid out. This one is a little older and can show it's age, but in the end as long as it is clean, comfortable, and a value, that's what matters most.

Very easy to get to from the thruway, a couple of restaurants within walking distance, and a lot more options within a 3-5 minute drive. Internet is very good.

The only drawback is the occasional lack of availability. This hotel can get sold out quickly in construction season and on at least one occasion it was used as an overflow for a local college when the dorms were full. That isn't meant as a slight on the guests, they are very good, just as an observation on how quickly the hotel can fill up.

Room Tip: The business king rooms have exceptional work areas.

If you only need a place to sleep, Red Roof is the place to stay. Rates are very reasonable, rooms are clean and stafff is friendly and helpful. Close to NYS Thruway. If you are seeking a little entertainment, Turning Stone Resort and Casino in Verona, NY, about a 20 minute drive from hotel.

I stumbled across the red roof inn in Utica just wanting to spend the night after driving the NY state thruway for hours. Easy on and off the highway. Lots off food places near by. What shocked me was how neat and clean it was for the price. $55 with my AAA discount! Unbelievable. The staff were friendly and efficient, room was clean, bed was comfortable. How can this be???? But, it is. Highly recommended for a place to lay your head.

After reading all the reviews for this hotel we decided to try this place, if for nothing else because of the price. We have stayed in both the Hampton Inn and the Radisson in Utica, and I must say I would put this hotel right up there with both of them in terms of comfort and cleanliness. The rooms are outside but the security is very adequate. We will definitely stay here from now on...in fact I think I am going to book our Christmas stay right now :)

Traveling on business I frequently stay in this area working or just passing thru for the night. Generally I stay at a hotel about 15 min down I-90 in Herkimer..On this night thou, my stay in Herkimer was booked full, so i hopped on "TripAdvisor" and found GREAT Reviews on this Red Roof Inn..WOW! was I impressed! I just bumped Herkimer off my list and added this Red Roof as my stay in this area!
I arrived about 7:15 pm on a snowy november evening and was greeted by 2 very friendly front desk staff.They offered a standard or deluxe room. I got the deluxe room for a total after taxes of $66.00 ( this is far less than i pay anywhere else i stay).
Plenty of parking with all outside access. If you worry about security, the doors are heavy metal with good locks! nothings getting thru these doors!
The room was great!!! looked recently remodeled , clean with plenty of lighting. coffee maker, microwave and a mini fridge. I loved the work space, its a big wrap around desk with a rolly desk chair. Plenty of room to lay out the laptop and paperwork to finish out the day. although i do not use them, there is no hair dryer or ironing board in the rooms.
If you want to pay less and are looking for a great place to stay i highly recommend this Red Roof Inn. I hope this review was helpfull..see ya again soon!!!
