“Be prepared to unclog your own toilet”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

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.

Room Tip: Go to another hotel.

Stayed at this hotel while picking antiques, it was close to antiquing areas. The room and washroom were clean and the WiFi worked well. The only negative for this hotel is that they allow pets and there were alot of barking dogs. I got a great deal booking online of around $50, was looking to book it again and it seems they want over $80. Worth staying for $50 but not $80. I would stay here again as long as the price was right.

I stayed in a non-smoking room on the second floor with 2 double beds. The room was very clean, and I didn't experience the bad smoke odors that the other reviews mentioned. The beds were comfortable and I had a good nights sleep. The do offer a continental breakfast in the morning. I was traveling with 3 dogs and they were welcomed by the front desk staff. There is a good size area near the back of the property (by the shed) to take your dogs to relieve themselves. I felt safe here and did not experience any issues with anyone staying in the other hotels in the area.

I didnt feel safe here. The hallways stank with cigarette smoke realllly bad! The room wasnt very clean and was worried about bugs! I dont think i would of chosen to stop here! They don't show you how they are off the street and all the buildings are joined. Just not at all what i would expect or a location i would have picked! For the money, i supose it is ok, but if you have a family? and wanna feel safe? keep on driving... i have decided in hotels? you get what you pay for!

Room Tip: I would stay away from here... but it is a decent hotel for the money you spend. I just didnt feel s...

The staff were friendly and helpful but when a hotel says it has a fitness room and free HBO they should have that. First the GYM was low level out dated equipment also basic channels and there to do nothing around there but it good for the night and they are pet friendly. The hot breakfast was awful

Room Tip: They need to say what they have and mean it :(

My friend and I stayed one night in a 2 queen bed room, on the first floor. Upon check-in at 9:30pm, our room was clean and exactly what we needed. I would recommend staying here. We saved money and had all we needed.

We stayed on a Friday night in Jan. The room was clean and pretty big with comfortable beds. It could use new pillows. Granted, it's not the Ritz - but you are not paying Ritz prices. I agree, the cable selection was excellent; and the staff members were friendly. The pleasant breakfast area has a nice selection and helps save time if you are traveling. The breakfast time was just about over at 9 am but the lady in charge made a fresh pot of coffee for us - thought that was very nice. We have stayed here before and will stay here again. If you are shopping for antiques in Adamstown, its perfect. Also near Green Dragon Farmers Market. Red Roof offers great deals at different times during the year---makes it even better!

Room Tip: You enter the rooms from an inside corridor which is nice. You can reach most rooms from the front...
