I suspected we were in trouble when the kid at the reception desk couldn't tell me how to get to my room. Then the directions were so vague that we wandered around a bit before finding a door to get up to the second floor.
Then, we were appalled at the unhygienic construction of the room. There is no sink in the bathroom, which means that every guest has to turn the knob to leave without even the opportunity to wash their hands. Who knows if and when the knob is disinfected. And of course, there's the matter of simple privacy in that you couldn't do anything at the sink without being in full view of everyone in the room. Not the fault of that hotel's management, but an incredibly stupid design on the part of Red Roof Inn.
Early in the evening our toilet clogged. I called the desk and was told I could come down and get a plunger. Apparently the ONLY employee on duty in the entire hotel was an elderly lady. After much argument, she called over to the hotel next door and they over a 14 or so year old kid who unclogged it. I wondered what would happen if there was a real emergency and the ONLY staff member was a slow-moving old lady.
The shower drained slowly because of all the hair in the tub. This improved only slightly after being cleaned the second day. Also, instead of putting the fresh towels on the racks in the bathroom, they were left piled on the sink. A used bar of soap was left in the sink.
Although probably not the fault of the hotel, the hallways reeked of cigarette smoke as if guests were smoking in the hallways instead of in their no smoking rooms.
They provided a limited continental breakfast. We would have greatly appreciated some low sugar offerings, such as Cheerios or corn flakes or maybe some hard boiled eggs. But everything there was full of sugar. The only cereal available was Frosted Flakes and Raisin Bran. There were waffles, but no sugar free syrup. They had "bagels" (not real bagels of course), but the cream cheese was frozen. The incredibly flimsy plastic silverware wasn't useable for anything.
Not the worst place I've ever stayed, but I'd never stay there, or any other Red Roof Inn, again.
