Reviewed December 25, 2013

This location is close to the major roads, clean and comfortable.
The staff was very, very helpful and the only drawback that I can describe is that it does not have an elevator, so if you have heavy bags with you and you are staying in one of the rooms upstairs, you will have carry them up the stairs.

Room Tip: See if you can get a room in the first floor, it will be easier when carrying your bags.

For around $50-$60 a night, you can't do any better than the Red Roof Inn Utica. The front desk team is courteous and professional; rooms are an outstanding value--clean and well-appointed. Location is convenient--easy on and off the Thruway. Conveniently located to Turning Stone--and you stand a much better chance of having a quiet room on the weekend!

Rich, thank you for the nice review regarding your stay. We ARE, in fact, a nice place to stay, at a nice price. We just added convenience this week by installing power strips right under the night stands. You can sleep well, knowing that your electronic gadgets are charging within reach. We hope to see you again soon!

The place was great. Everything from the customer service to the cleanliness of the rooms......honestly, for the price, I was very impressed. What's even more, we started out with only 1 room and ended up taking 3! We were in town from NYC for a family event. Once I checked in and met up with the rest of my family I told them how awesome the Red Roof was and we called the front desk to reserve 2 more rooms! I will definintely be returning to this hotel anytime I am in Utica and I suggest you do the same.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 236 and 238 and they were very clean and the matresses were new.

The two-story motel is right off the highway and easy to spot from the road. We stayed on the second floor. The room was comfortable and very clean. The reception staff were very nice and provided an excellent recommendation for a nearby place to eat, Babes, which is a family style place. For breakfast the next morning, a Denny's is very nearby. For us, the price was right and the room was fine. Nothing to complain about.

Room Tip: Suggest staying on the second floor for the serenity and also nearby to the staircase to make it eas...

stayed here over the holiday weekend.
We travel with our dog. Plenty of room for the pet, room was clean and service was great.
That's why we stay here when visiting Utica. Just off the interstate. It was close to several different eating eatablishments. Good value for money.

Cliff, thank you for your delightful review! I was smiling as I read it because it reinforces that we are in a convenient location and pet friendly! There are many other things to do in Utica and the surrounding areas. There is the Utica Zoo, Saranac Brewery (tours on Saturday), Herkimer Diamond mines (you can mine your own diamonds!), see a live show at the Stanley Theatre, and more. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Nicely decorated rooms. Friendly front desk staff. We were in town for an event at the Auditorium and it was very convenient to get there. Short drive, or even walkable in a pinch (which we were). There are also a few fast food type restaurant options within walking distance. If I ever go back to Utica I would stay there again.

Thank you for staying with us and for the nice review. Many of our Canadian friends like to hop off of exit 31 for a nice stay and to be seconds away from shopping and restaurants. You will always be welcomed with a warm greeting and a hassle free stay. Please stop by again.

The motel was not that easy to spot as you drove along the road, better sinage would help travellers. The motel was very good, very friendly and helpful staff. The room was clean with tea/coffee making machine and a very large comfortable bed. It was close to several different eating eatablishments. Good value for money.
