“Fine hotel, but check for NCSU events before booking!”
Reviewed May 5, 2012

We booked two nights here on our way south. The hotel was fine, clean and comfortable. Good location near Interstate, farmers market, university and downtown. They don't serve a continental breakfast, but they offer guests a bag breakfast (big tasty muffin, apple, and bottle of water), which was a fine solution for us.

The first night (Saturday) was chaotic; there was a college event called Day-Glo nearby, which appeared to involve paintball and beer, and the hotel was full of young people running up and down the halls shouting 'til about 3 in the morning. I got on the elevator to go back up to my room Sunday morning, and when the door opened, I was face-to-face with a six-foot tall red chicken, which was no stranger than some creatures I had seen the night before. Sunday night, the place was deserted and we got a fine night's sleep. Moral: check for college events before booking!

Room Tip: Check the schedule of college events; if there's a big one, try a different hotel!

We had a suite. The rooms were spacious, and furniture comfortable, and the lighting bright.
One minor complaint - small, hard pillows on the beds.

Stayed for 4 nights here and found the staff were great and the location was excellent.

On the downside there was no fitness suit but for the price that is to be expected.

The internet was wireless but less than great coverage made it extremely frustrating from a business perspective.

A trip to Kickback Jack's was the highlight of the stay but nearby a Walmart made grocery shopping easy.

Frustrating that there was NO facilities to print anything as no business center existed.

My wife and I traveled to Raleigh to visit my 82 year old aunt and uncle. They were not in any shape to put us up at their home. So we picked the Red Roof Inn on South Saunders Street to stay for the night. We knew from previous stays at Red Roof Inn's across the nation that we would be well taken care of there. The staff and the facility exceeded our expectations! Try it some time soon, you'll see!

NOT WORTH THE SAVINGS!!! There were some hoodlums loitering in the parking lot at night, with pants hanging on the knees and underwear showing, hats sideways, and a comb in the hair. Later I saw one walking around looking into parked cars windows. Inside it was rather clean, but neighbors on one side had a very loud rap music playing every day till midnight and were arguing, neighbors on the other side having loud sex. It was loud enough to hear a guy say "Yo yo my baby got back, my baby got back, yo yo" and the bed hitting the wall... for about 20 minutes. This is supposed to be a family place and our kids were asking what are those people doing there. I recommend you rent elsewhere, this place is low rent....

My two stay at The Red Roof was an ecellant stay. Very clean accomodations and a big round of applause to Tressa, the clerk who checked us in. She is such a nice person and made the stay so pleasurable. This is my second time staying here. Will stay here again.

This is one of the nicer Red Roofs I've been to. Good value. King room had a nice corner desk for my laptop, and an OK (if older) TV; adequate for my needs. Because I have a torn meniscus, I opted for a handicapped accessible room (but without the roll-in shower, which I did not need). Plenty of grab bars, which made me feel secure getting in and out of the tub. Slightly better quality toiletries than the typical Roof, in-room coffee pot and hair dryer were a Roof first. Better lighting in the room, but still the same thin towels of a typical Roof. One down side...the shelf for toiletries was quite narrow; not enough space for my stuff in the bathroom. The breakfast baggie with the apple, bottled water and muffin was a nicer touch. Decent (if hard) bed, but I like a firm mattress. Although not traveling with a pet, I like the chain because they don't charge extra if you are.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from street.
