After reading multiple reviews on here about this property I did book for a Friday night hockey game. Check-in was quick and simple. The staff at the front desk was very friendly and personable. Parking right across the street was cheap ($10 in and out) and easy.
Asked for a high floor in the hopes it would be quiet. Was given room 701 which was at the end of the hall and actually one of only two rooms behind a firewall, so yes it was quiet and private. The room exceeded expectations. VERY spacious!!! Modern decor and features; wall mounted flat screen, microwave, mini fridge, and tons of outlets. Requested a rollaway, but they did not have any. They did have a full-sized inflatable air mattress that actually worked better. It was very easy to inflate and when necessary, deflate. It was WAY more comfortable than a rollaway.
The hotel is a very short two block walk to the arena district and even closer to the Convention Center.
The caution is for the breakfast. I read some reviews on here that said the breakfast had sausage, either patties or links, but they did not. I could have sworn I read it had biscuits and gravy as well, but none. We got down the the breakfast room at 8:30 and they hardly had anything. Some hard boiled eggs and a tupperware bowl of fresh cut fruit with just a few pieces left at the bottom. Little paper plates (the size of a DVD) obviously told me they weren't going to have any hot food. My daughters were hoping for even some cold cereal, but none. For a family of 4 breakfast at the hotel can save $20-$30, but it didn't on this stay.
Would I recommend this property, yes I would. However, be prepared to find breakfast somewhere else. Otherwise, very happy and impressed with this Red Roof Inn.
