Red Roof PLUS+ Raleigh NCSU - Convention Center

Reviewed August 25, 2014

Having stayed at a competing hotel in Wilson the week prior, where they thought "smoke free" simple meant removing the ash trays from the room, I found myself looking for an alternative place to stray on my way back from FL... I loved this red roof... Clean... I mean you could eat off the floor clean.... 100% smoke free and pet friendly... They have hardwood looking laminate floors in the guest rooms instead of carpet.. Giving it a much more modern look and it's much more sanitary than carpet. I'll definitely stay here again.

I've stayed here on business and for personal visits. The upgrades and the attention to detail have set this property high on my list of value hotels. The staff is extremely accommodating and friendly. There isn't a breakfast included, except for the to-go bag for the guests on the way out, but that's not an issue. Raleigh is full of great breakfast sites, and my business visits usually begin with a client breakfast anyway. Altogether, I've stayed at a lot of hotels for a lot more money and been disappointed with the value. The entire property is smoke-free and it's dog-friendly. Don't let the perception of a Red Roof property to be "economy class" influence your decision. This is a real "Plus+" that treats you right

Room Tip: Even this "Plus+" rated property has premium rooms. Try the Premium Business King.

I stayed at this hotel when in town for a funeral. I had stayed here previously with no issues. Came to town dropped my bags off and left. When I returned there was water in the bathtub and hair on the toilet. Because I know for a fact I did neither of these things I requested a new room and was given one promptly no problem. Got to the new room there was a few little hairs from either the housekeeper cleaning or either they just didn't check after the person who resided their before but I didn't bother to complain. Yes they have hard wood floors but no real breakfast, no microwaves or fridges in the room unless you get the upgraded ones. They charge you for the safe in the room unless you tell them otherwise. it's not really what you pay for as a "plus" hotel.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I apologize that we did not meet your expectations. I will discuss your review with our housekeeping department to ensure this does not happen in the future. We do offer a grab and go breakfast in the lobby each morning. Microwaves and refrigerators are available in our superior rooms and deluxe doubles. You could also upgrade to our Premium rooms which offers a welcome snack of popcorn and water, along with an in-room breakfast/granola bars, a package of trail mix with orange juice and coffee. We hope you will give us another opportunity should your travel plans bring you back to the Raleigh area.

Clean room, laminate floors so updated and fresh. Location right off I-40 super! Price is right. Friendliest front desk staff ever! Most important though was that our small dog was accepted. We tried other places who answered a big NO! After 13 hours of travel, this hotel was an answer to our prayers. Thank you, thank you. Would use this location again, pet or no pet.

Room Tip: Third floor, very quiet room at end of the hall was perfect for us. A great night's sleep, very...

Red Roof Inn's online reservation found me a room when the other sites said the property was full. As several reviews have indicated , the property was renovated and upgraded to conform with the RRI Plus brand. The laminated hardwood flooring is really nice...warm underfoot, clean, comfortable to walk on, even in bare feet.The beds and pillows are very nice, the bathrooms have elevated sink basins which are so much nicer than having to bend over to wash or shave, the bathrooms have new tub/shower enclosures and thick ,fluffy towels. The new office-type chair at the built-in desk was very comfortable for working on your computer. The coffee at breakfast bar was good quality. The rest of the breakfast-to-go is healthy but inexpensive fare...no made-to-order omelets, here. The net result was a great overnight stay at a centrally-located property and a good night's sleep for far less than half of the premium chains .
