As usual, our favorite Red Rood Inn has made our stay in Utica a comfortable experience. They are renovating the rooms and our room was spotless with new hardwood floors, a nice TV and a very comfy bed. (A nice motel is even nicer!)
There was some outside painting still going on outside... the staff was grilling food and even invited us to share it. Everyone is always very friendly and seem honestly sincere in trying to make our stay enjoyable. This is a really great place to stay!

We stopped at the Red Roof Inn for an over night stop, the room was clean and the Inn was right off the exit of the Thurway. It was the perfect stopping place for us. There was a large group of people hanging around in front of some of the rooms drinking and smoking. But they didnt bother us at all. And the pizza place at the end of the driveway offered NYC style pizza, which was close to the real thing.

The room was fine, clean even if it was a bit small, but the atmosphere of the place was a little seedy. There were lots of men drinking and smoking outside of their rooms. I know it is a budget place, but you just don't feel safe with groups of men standing around drinking and smoking outside of rooms. The parking was really tight too, many people had to park in the roadways around the place due to a lack of spots. In the past I remember lots of seniors and families at Red Roofs but lately at several locations we have noticed mostly workmen staying at these motels. I don't think we will be staying at Red Roofs anymore. If they want the senior and family market they need to make some some rules and enforce them regarding the conduct of guests outside on their grounds.

Thank you for acknowledging that we are a clean hotel! Our new rooms are getting rave reviews from our customers. They now feature hard wood floors, brand new beds and flat screen televisions. Our clientale are hard workers supporting their families and trying to get through the week being away from them. They are here improving our local area with new restaurants being built, old buildings being knocked down to make room for new development of our downtown area, lines being painted on roads, and land being cleaned up. We try to give them as much freedom to treat our hotel like their home away from home. We do a great job getting to know our customers. In addition staff here do monitor the property with regular walk arounds to make sure that we are aware of who is on property. We act swiftly if we feel that a guest is being disrespectful. We respect families and woman travelers. We make every attempt to provide all of our guests with a cozy place on their way to the next stop.

We were given a newly renovated room on the ground level. It was very nicely done! The decor and cleanliness were both excellant. The two women working the front desk were just delightful. We asked for restaurant recommendations for dinner and breakfast. They sent us to Babe's for dinner. Great food and service. For breakfast, they sent us to Top of the Morning. I had the absolute BEST omlette I've ever had and it was HUGE! Thankfully, we had a cooler with us, so I was able to take the other half to enjoy for another breakfast. When I told the extremely friendly waitress how good I thought it was, she said, "It's made with a lot of love." She right! It didn't even look like an omlette. She said my reaction when she serviced it was typical for first time customers. Sorry, I got sidetracked on the hotel review. I would stay at this Red Roof Inn again, but I would also asked for a renovated room. I have no idea what the other rooms looked like. We had a very good experience here!

Room Tip: Ask for one of the newly renovated rooms!

We appreciate you acknowledging that we are a clean affordable hotel. Just last week we finished the renovation of all 112 guest rooms. The new rooms are getting rave reviews. Our customers are excited to stay in the newest rooms in Utica and we are thrilled to accommodate.
